    Hello Bulent,

    Surprisingly I have never been to Vanuatu or New Caledonia which are closer to Brisbane than Perth. A superb dailt life scene with excellent sharpness and saturation. The red hibiscus flowers add a splash of color. I hope this area wasnt too badly hit by Cyclone Pam in March 2015. (Category 5 SSHS :-() Tfs!

    Ciao Pierre,

    The moving pontoon boat is a fine center of interest. Good sharpness and density levels. The blue skylight reflections in the water and repetition of the waves add interest. Tfs!

    I like the boomerang shaped curve of the converging rivers that at first glance resemble glaciers. The starburst effect of the setting sun at right is tremendous and adds a nice warm cold color contrast of orange vs blue. Tfs!

    Hello Kari,

    The yellow poles and blue and blue grey colours are evocative of the Swedish flag so I am not surprised that Gert liked it! Nice repetition of patterns and shapes with good sharpness and a few commuters for scale. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    I like the repetition of the trees covering the hillside at right. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The opposing angles of the bridge and the canal add interest. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    I remember a few places in China wanted 80 yuan admission fees and I paid it begrudgingly. But one place near Wuxi wanted 210 yuan admission ticket price which I refused to pay. Especially because it was a hazy day with air pollution and no blue sky. I intended to go back another time to Lingshan but it wasn't to be. This view reminds me of the Blue Mountains behind Sydney. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    I don't think I have been to Hunan province so it's interesting to see what I missed! The colorful traditional costume worn by the woman is eyecatching. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Bonjour Jean,

    The stony beach resembles Nice in the French Riviera. Good sharpness and color and the pontoons are a good idea to avoid the stones for a swim. The exposed yellow ochre color of cliff contrasts well with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hi Murat,

    Not sure but I think some time ago I took a night shot or 2 of this same building. It's illuminated in yellow and was just up the road from a hotel I stayed in for a night. The sweeping curve of the road adds good lead in lines. Tfs!

    Nicely layered into horizontal thirds with good sharpness and excellent warm cold color contrasts between the orange sunset skies and the blue skies at the top. The kite adds a focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Angel,

    Looks a little like Girokaster in Albania. The misty shrouded summit of the hill adds mood and atmosphere. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Perhaps there should be a no parking rule on such a narrow street? Tfs!

    Hello Abmdsudi

    The hobbled front legs of the camel attest to its domestication. Also it appears to have been shaved recently for its fur. Summers might be hot, but winters in the desert are cold! In Mongolia they use the camel hair to make quilts, pillows and carpets etc.
    Fantastic sharpness and a nice pov. Tfs!

    Hi Craig,

    The curved pink road adds good lead in lines below and through the arch. The people provide scale. Excellent sharpness and well framed and composed. The shady view is still better than that of many trucks. Tfs!

    A belated welcome to Trek Earth. Good sharpness and superb symmetrical reflections. The yellow and blue colors go well together. The lines lead to the crowd of people at right and enhance the composition. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    I like the hazy mirage like appearance of the landscape below the jet of water where a thin film of water vapour is adding slight distortion. The man provides a pivotal point to the composition. Tfs!
