I am hoping to see this later in the year. Good density leves that have given excellent saturation and light contrasts, with solid blacks and clean whites. Well composed and the 4 camels resting with their colorful saddles make a good fg focal point. Tfs.

Missed this one. The open door of the arched fg gate allows a tantalising glimpse of the bg interior walls with the stone path adding good lead in lines and perspective. The tremendous clear blue sky is marvellous. Tfs.

A wonderful Californian sunset with good sharpness and superb symmetrical reflections in the water. Good color and saturation with nice repetition of the yachts. The semi-circular rock at right makes a fine silhouetted focal point. Tfs.

I think my boat from Samos to Mykonos stopped at this island briefly. A superb high pov with good color and sharpness. The light blue floor of the boat compliments the blue sea and sky. Reasonable sharpness and well composed. Tfs.

This was taken some time ago as the pools are now closed to tourists. I visited last year and they've constructed 5 artificial pools at the top for bathing. It's an impressive sight for sure. Good sharpness and the travertine terraces resemble cotton or snow. Tfs.

I missed seeing Stavanger when I was in Norway last year so now I have 2 excuses to go back. I am melting in 38c heat here so the snow and ice is a welcome sight on a hot day in Albania. Good sharpness and the minimalist colors work well here. Tfs.

Just what I need to see on a hot day of 38c. Lots of cool refreshing snow. I might even be able to get motivated and go do some touring and sightseeing! Good sharpness and tonal range with the little red roofed building adding a good focal point. Tfs.

Looks Greek in origin. I saw a few similar structures in Turkey built by ancient Greeks. But yes this is definitely Roman and the angled pov showing off 2 facades works well here. Excellent sharpness and framing. Tfs.

Considering how long these cartoon characters have been around (1960's) I will bet many adults and grandparents although get entertained by the theme park displays. Vibrant color with good sharpness and saturation. Tfs.

The brontosaurus neck shape of the tower always reminds me of the Expo 70 Australian pavillion in Osaka Japan, even though it was supposed to be a wave. Tfs. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-aI3AdI6jd8Q/T0noIYdKUkI/AAAAAAAADtA/_BDzq1f7Z1Q/s1600/%E6%B5%AE%E4%B8%96%E7%B5%B5%E3%82%AA%E3%83%BC%E3%82%B9%E3%83%88%E3%83%A9%E3%83%AA%E3%82%A2%E9%A4%A8.jpg

Excellent sharpness and a good downward pov. They have these tidal rockpools in Sydney as well albeit in better condition as there are no frequent hurricanes. Good color, sharpness and saturation with a nice interplay between the people at right and the boys swimmimg at left. Tfs.

The 3 central geese with their wings outspread and the 4th at righ a little lower down make this sculpture impressive. The man and woman below also add interest. Good sharpness and shadow detail with a soft, diffused light. Tfs.

The red canopy on the bg boat sets up a superb warm cold color contrast against the blue water, sky and fg boat. Good use of the fg boat too to add splendid lead in lines and perspective. Excellent sharpness and reflections. Tfs. Ps The title should be 'fishing' ;-)

A superb daily life shot from Uganda with the van packed with school kids. Hope the teacher(s) get to sit up front! Nice to have a couple of the children breaking the repetitive body postures by waving. Good color and sharpness. Tfs.

A nice minimalist shot of just the bird against a clear blue sky. Good sharpness and density levels. I might have cropped a little tighter and placed the bird further to the right to enhance the composition. Tfs.
