    This could only be from the viewfinder of your camera sunbeam - true "Cowlingesque" imagery that is a prime example of your lateral thinking. Clever in concept and execution, not sure what "tandem" in Russian means, I know there was a lot of controversy over the Putin/Medvedev tandem with them swapping roles in 2011, but I doubt that is what is being referred to here! Perhaps Sir Serghei can proffer some explanation.

    Lots of colour and character here - like it!

    Captain Pugwash!

    Your weather is making headlines here - you getting a soaking I understand!

    Hi Rosemary,
    Lovely scene. The man's facial expression while reading the news is fitting the crazy times we live in. Yeah, the world got mad...
    Have a fine evening.

    Hi Lars,
    Fine POV of this spectacular bridge. I like the colors and the contrasts. As for the vote, I'm against this separation for the long term effects that will divide even more our world...

    the classic Greek shot this. Simple elements and colours but always attractive and artistically worthwhile.

    a beautifully wide open view this and it works so enticingly. The light divides the shot but also provides depth and a compelling simplicity to this image. An eye-catching take on this TE favourite.

    Hello John
    this did bring a smile to my face! You have to admire any man that can manage to get in touch with his feminine side and not mind who sees him or photographs him. A real character shot this and captured perfectly and completely off-guard.

    It looks like Dolly Partem needs a shave!!

    it may be the most photographed but you have captured it sublimely. I love the sense of tranquillity here, plus the immaculate detail and DOF it all makes for a stunning and exquisite image.

    a shot that must have put spots before your eyes, looking straight at the Earth Star. It makes for a fascinating way of showing us this magnificent column and your management of the light is beautifully accomplished, with no loss of detail.

    Excellent!

    Hello Rosemary
    this title was always going to grab my attention. The "Fab 4" at their very best and a song that stands head and shoulders above what sometimes passes as music nowadays. The world does seem to be in a bit of a state again doesn't it? We seem to be slipping back into a Cold War Era once again and I do not understand why. If only the solutions were B&W like this fine image, but unfortunately it is not that simple.

    Hi Klaudio,
    Nice image, a trademark for the Scots. With all the respect for them, I vote against their independence, nothing good will come out of this. In a time of instability and wars, we fall apart for being captive to old ideas...
    Anyway, nice shot.
