I've been there and the unusual watermelon slice shape is eyecatching. The fg people add scale an animate the shot. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. I like th reflective glass structure at left too. Well framed and composed. Tfs!

Th monastery steals the show perched on the fg hill at left. I like the amazingly eroded bare bg hill too. The this strip of trees and greenery just above the floodplain but before the hill adds colour and interest. The geological layers in the rock strata add interest too. Tfs!

I like the elongated 'u' shaped curve at the top. The village at left adds life and serves a fine focal point. The blue lake contrasts well against the yellow green grass covering the bare hillside. I like the mist shrouding the mountain, as it imparts mood. Tfs!

A good shot of the concert and famous group. The women are attractive! Niely handled backlight with excellent sharpness and colourful stagelights. Just enough shadow detail to satisfy and I like the tight framing and composition. Tfs!

I have only been to Innsbruck in Tyrol and that was nice too. I like the curving. 'c' shaped road which adds good lead in lines and perspective. A nice upward pov on the imposing bg castle with superb sharpness. A nice blue sky also. Tfs!

In Mongolia they call these gers, and the wigwam shaped dwellings of the reindeer people are known as yurts. Good sharpness and I like the mist on the bg mountains, which adds mood. The fg path adds perspective. They are quite roomy and comfortable inside. Tfs!

Vibrant color with good saturation & sharpness. Effective tight framing on the ornamental vase with flowers depicted in the marvellous artwork ceiling. The cross hatch squares form an unintentional texture screen! Good textural contrasts too. Tfs!

A stunning image from the Rhone Alps with good sharpness and excellent framing. The meandering dirt road at right adds superb lead in lines and the snowcapped peaks in the bg are magnificent. The houses in the valley and atop the ridge add interest. Tfs!

Impeccable sharpness and good colour and saturation. I might have tried to crop tighter to place more emphasis on the human subjects, perhaps remove the upper third with the oe sky to just below the flag, as the other design elements are competing with the human subjects. Tfs!

A good action shot of the budding cowboy with nice motion blur that conveys movement. Nice colours and well framed and composed with plenty of breathing space. The boys red and blue attire sets up a good warm cold colour contrast too. Tfs!

They had similar structures for pigeons in Cappadocia, Turkey. Its ironic, because some of the Byzantine religious paintings were protected for centuries by the pigeons droppings covering them! Looks damp on account of the green mossy walls. Good sharpness and pov from above. Tfs!

I like how, with a little imagination, the rock appears to have one paw on the sand, or its tail depending on your pov. Regardless, the sand and rock seem to blend together. Good graphism and sharpness. Backlight has been well managed. Pleasant minimalist colours. Tfs!

A beautiful interior shot that compares very favourably with some of the best churches I've seen in Europe, & I've seen quite a few!. Good sharpness colour and diffused light. The worshipers and priest add life and context. Nice repetition of the pink hued columns and arches. Tfs!

This reminds me of Dalyan in south west Turkey, where there are island and clumbs of these water reeds. The old unpainted wooden boat under the equally rustic wooden bridge adds interest. The bridge adds good lead in lines. Superb sharpness, colour and saturation. Tfs!

Superb use of a shallow dof on this native bird of China with good sharpness and excellent graphism of the brightly lit colourful bird against the darker partly shadowed bg. Good sharpness. Do they have woodpeckers in Europe? I am sure I heard one and saw it too in Rasnov, Romania. I'd always thought they were a North American bird. Woody woodpecker has a lot to answer for! Tfs!

No sign of the Flintstones but still a great prehistoric monument regardless. They have similar structures in South Korea where they are called dolmens, and also in other western European countries like Holland. Different name again there. I like the mini canyon view here. Good sharpness and tfs this interesting post!

I good upward pov and the colour scheme reminds of nacre or mother of pearl. Excellent sharpness and shadow detail with fine symmetry ans superb framing and composition. The circle within the 4 pointed star (which resembles a compass) steals the show. A nice upward pov too. Tfs!

I like the angled pov showing 2 facades of the church steeple. Good shadow detail & sharpness. The lighter blue sky enhances the graphic effect of the dark shadowed tones of the church. Well framed and composed. The 2 trees either side nicely frame the church. Tfs!

The dirt road adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. The people add life and are well positioned near the vanishing point. I like the jagged bg mountains. Good sharpness and the greenery either side is nice. Tfs!

The overhanging red flowers on the upper balconies add life and colour to this street scene. The reflections in the wet pavement add interest. The street adds perspective and the people with umbrellas animate the scene. Tfs!
