    Hi Danos,

    Nice symmetry is offered by the 2 twin windmills. Their red roofs contrast well against the blue sky. Great to see them in relatively good condition too. Quite a few I saw in Turkey were falling apart. I am aware there has been no maintenance since the 1923 population exchange. Tfs!

    Hello Piotr,

    The fg double arch frames the bg tower beautifully. Good sharpness and the red bricks contrasts well with the cyan sky. The people add scale but the car doesn't do much either positive or negative. Tfs.

    It is just about impossible not to take a good photo in Venice, the city is that photogenic. The bridge over the canal at left makes a good focal point and the tower at right anchors the shot. Tfs!

    The wall painting at left of the landscape painter adds charm to this shot. Or should that be a seascape? Good sharpness and the classical old stone castle makes a marvellous backdrop. Tfs!

    Wow! I can make out 2 brontosaurus heads, a snail or snake, a jaguar like painting and a tapir. I can't remember my South American flora and fauna! A tapir might be south east Asia? Colorful and impressive! Tfs!
