    Hello Jean Claude,
    This is a nicely framed view of the top of the tower. It looks like the jet plane took off from the tower. It's an amusing effect. I like the strong colours.

    Hello Harriet,
    You bring us once again to your favourite kind of scenery. This is a beautiful view from a marvellously fine day in mid October.The diagonal jetty, the anchored white boat and the red boat steering towards land are three very distinct features, each one very beautiful on its own. The fantastic light and the very clear water are equally important ingredients of this well taken photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Piotr,
    It's good that the huts are there so we could fully grasp the dimensions of this view. It's a very rough and breathtaking scenery partly covered with the clouds. Your fine photo has a very good light and fine colours.

    Hello Serghei,
    I have passed through Anamur a couple of times but I don't remember this castle. Maybe I saw it from the buses, but after all it was about 40 years ago. I should really have remembered it, because it looks very impressive, at least from this angle. You captured the splashing wave very well too.

    Hello Kari,
    This is not just a very small place, it also looks very quiet and neat. The well kept houses match the autumn colours quite well. It's a very nice photo with good light and a pleasant diagonal.

    This is an original composition telling us a bit about life in this part of Vietnam, as well as being graphically attractive. I like the mild green and grey tones.

    Hello Klaudio,
    This is a very well composed and truly fascinating photo. I was about to write that the mountain looked like some kind of dessert when I noticed the title. It is marvellously similar to halva. The shapes are very odd and would obviously excite any photographer. The village looks rather poor, remaining in a time of history long before the digital world. It doesn't look like the ordinary tourist spot and I wouldn't expect to find many photos from here on TE.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    The answer to your riddle is so obvious that there could not be any competition for this ;.). But even those who are not as crazy for abandoned boats and ruins as Craig could enjoy a view like this of the rough wood, the rusty boat and the nice rays of sun cutting through the clouds.
    Have a nice weekend.

    Hello Ourania,
    Another one of your fine photos of reflections. As usual it is quite simple, buit the ropes are hanging very elegantly, creating equally fine reflections. I really like the muted tones of green, blue and yellow in the left part of the photo. Just for once I disagree slightly with your composition. I think this could have been improved by cropping the right part, just to the left of the overexposed area near the corner. In my opinion it would not damage the balance of the composition and you would get rid of the slightly disturbing washed out part.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Bev,
    If the tops come off the beach huts you would just have to go swimming topless ;-)
    These are nice little huts with pretty colours. If you can't find the real thing this kind of substitute will do equally well.
    Have a nice weekend.

    Hello Ann,
    It would be rare to make such a nice composition from inside a moving bus. It would also be rare to find a Cambodian bus with such a clean window. I would be happy to take a photo like this standing in the street. The colours are very nice, and as often happens the monks' robes and umbrellas are nicely matched throughout the photo. Maybe the man on the bike and the monks could symbolize Cambodia's history of war and peace.
    Kind regards,

    An excellent composition of men at work. I like the way the dark nets are hanging down and I love the bright foreground. This was very well seen and well handled.

    Hello Daniel,
    This is a fine and quite original composition. Most photographers would have pointed their cameras higher up to capture only the red leaves, but I really like this different approach. I like the balance between red and green, and I also like the two benches and two trees. It's a very attractive photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Satya,
    "Uncharming" locations often offer the best photo opportunities. This place is probably more interesting to people in other countries than the main street with the fine shops. Not much is going on here, but it's fun to imagine what the two men are discussing. It's a glimpse of everyday life and there is also a nice pattern of blue, yellow and red items repeated throughout the composition.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Barnabas,
    Again, this is a very nicely taken photo, well composed. This time the scan is excellent. The colors are as good as in a new digital photo, the sharpness is fine and I see no noise, which often is a problem in scans. The photo has kept its high quality for all these years. I think today maybe not much has changed in this place except that the red star has been removed.
