    Hello Wolfgang

    The blue and yellow colors go well together on the exterior of this elegant Russian building. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The tourists with umbrellas at left animate the scene. Tfs!

    The fg yellow flower contrasts well with the blue sky to give a fantastic warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and smart choice of a vertical format. Tfs!

    Hello Serge,

    Nice repetition of the colorful hot air balloons, with good sharpness and excellent depth & layering added by the fg shrubs. The jet trails adds interest to the sky. Tfs!

    A good upward pov with excellent tonal range and sharpness. Punchy light contrasts and I like how the lip of each of the individual stairs are catching the backlight. Tfs!

    Salut Christiane,

    I think it is a juvenile mandarin duck. As it gets older its chest should turn blue and its back wing orange. I saw a couple in Suzou, China in the Humble Administrators Garden. Tfs!

    Ciao Danos

    I know this street well. Good to catch in a diffused light as the harsh shadows and oe highlights on a sunny day make this a very difficult shot. The woman with the umbrella lets us know it is raining. Tfs!

    Hi Ralf

    Ah, one from home. The New Farm cliffs sure do provide an excellent vantage point of both the bridge and the city skyline. Impeccable sharpness and punchy light contrasts with good shadow details. I don't know why, but a lot of Sydney people will tell you there is absolutely nothing to see in Brisbane. There may not be a lot in the central city but there is at least a month's supply of places to see within 200 km. Tfs!

    Hi Craig,

    A spectacular aerial view of this wild and desolate looking volcanic landscape, with perfect sharpness and good framing and composition. The blue water at right contrasts well with the yellow green grass carpeting the terrain. Tfs!

    The silhouetted solitary person at the bottom is important for scale here. Astonishing repetition of the geometric patterns and shapes. Good sharpness and density levels. Tfs!

    Hello Ryszard

    I could have sworn this was a mosque until I read the accompanying note. Unusual that it was for importing cigarettes from the then exotic Ottoman enclave of Thrace, now part of Greece. Tfs!

    Hi Lars

    With global warming the North West Passage may become a permanent, rather than very temporary route. Good sharpness and I like the flattened perspective from the zoom which brings the bg mountains up close. Tfs!

    Good sharpness, and I like the layering in this composition with the fg carpark, the harbour with fishing boats and further back the main town and hilltop dwellings and sky. Tfs!
