    Hi Craig,

    It looks like a NY version of the bridge of sighs in Venice. Good tight framing and excellent sharpness. The 3 lanes of traffic aren't quite as romantic or scenic as Venice but we cant have everything, right? Tfs! Ps, Brisbane and Vancouver are about the same size, the people have similar warm friendly temperaments, and both cities are in the shadow of their larger cousins (Sydney Melbourne / Toronto Montreal).

    Hi Pavle,

    I like the horizontal, candy like stripes of the red and white church. Good sharpness and the small chapel at left mirrors the style and shape of the larger neighbor. Tfs!

    Hi Gert

    Fortunately for me I was born 1 year too early to receive the free gift of national service in Vietnam as the war ended in 1975 when I was 19. The water village scene here evokes memories of Venice or Suzhou. This area is prone to typhoons and some of those dwellings are only a few centimetres above the water. Tfs!

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    I might have cropped the ceiling at the top and the sofa and panel at the bottom for a tighter simpler shot, but this is fine as is. Good sharpness and a clever reflection in the mirror. Tfs!

    I like the sweeping curve of the road and green lawn at left directing the eye towards the back and around the blue flowers to the curved palace. The people add scale. Tfs!

    The blue magenta colour of the flowers contrasts superbly against its green, complimentary opposite on the color wheel. Perfect sharpness on the butterfly with good use of a shallow dof. Tfs!

    Hi Kasia,

    This reminds me of a shot I took at Pamukkale at blue hour which I have been meaning to upload for a while but never seem to get around to. The motion blur of the boat adds a nice abstract quality. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    The exposed fg red rocks contrast well against the bg blue sky and the silver colored house provides a good focal point. The couple atop the cliff add interest. Tfs!
