    Salut Jean

    They have the same problem with beach erosion from storms in the Gold Coast beaches south of Brisbane. Eventually the sand comes back. From memory I think Delft of the Netherlands gave advice to pump sand from a nearby river estuary back onto the beaches. And construct a number of rock groynes. Tfs!

    Hi Paul

    It looks like a miniature Prague which also had lots of white swans. The diffused light works well and sharpness is excellent. Good linear perspective with the bridge near the vp making an ideal focal point. Tfs!

    Hi, Paul,

    There is a similar deserted copper mine outside Chillagoe in far north Queensland that looks similar to this. Good sharpness and wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the rusty red orange and the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Angel,

    The composition is first rate but I am not sure about the blurring of the rocks. Did they have rude Spanish words and graffiti scrawled on them? The reflection of the person with a red jacket is excellent. Tfs!

    Hello Kasia

    It is with sadness I look at this image after the terrible earthquake last year. I was lucky enough to visit Nepal in 2000 and again in 2001. A superb daily life scene of the 2 women with prayer candles. Tfs!
