    Hello Luciano,

    I like both shots. The unperturbed cat has found an ideal spot perched above to the street to survey the street. Good sharpness and nice warm cold color contrasts. Tfs!

    A good daily life scene from Holland and in Australia the Queens birthday holiday is in June, even though her real birthday is in April. The repetition of the soap bubbles adds interest and color. Tfs!

    Smart choice of a vertical frame to capture of the worlds most iconic and well known buildings. King Kong has a lot to answer for! The old style schooner makes a great fg subject. Tfs!
