A magnificent alpine vista of rigged snow capped peaks with excellent sharpness and a fine upward pov. The fg bridge and the tiny houses just above the snowline add scale and focal points. Tfs!

I like the repetition of colours, patterns and shaped in this duo of balloon shots. The stripes in the right hand side image are complimented with the photographers reflection. Good sharpness and saturation. Excellent warm cold color contrasts. Tfs!

The textures and patterns and repetition of shapes in the fg slate roof are marvellous. Good sharpness and a wonderful high pov overlooking this picturesque village. The black tower on the bg hill makes a good focal point. Tfs!

I like the repetition of the row of tall green poplar trees in the fg. Good sharpness and excellent use of the row to add a partial lower frame to the hilltop village in the distance. The fg corn field adds depth and layering to the composition. Tfs!

A nice capture of this austere, simple and Spartan prayer room with excellent shadow detail and th gloom adding mood and atmosphere. The light top right adds a tonal range. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

There must be some dissolved minerals in the water like calcite or travertine that are building up a deposit when the water level is low. Anyway the yellow contrasts well with the rich blue sky. A fine upward pov on the cascades. Tfs!

Hello Beverley my TE neighbour today!
I have also been having problems trying to upload today. Many attempts and success. Lovely reflections in the water. I do not know about north Yorkshire but I have read an article a few years back that fish birds & aquatic life that have not been seen in decades in previously polluted streams are starting to slowly return to many rivers in south east England like the Thames. Let us hope these water quality controls are national. And the intrepid fisherman catches a large fish! Tfs!

Fantastic symmetrical reflections of the 2 boats with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The tight framing woks well here. The shallow dof and soft focus bg enhance the scene. Tfs!

A superb nocturnal shot of the Golden dome on the Rock. Security was tight when I was there and there were rostered times for entry of Jews and Muslims. I like the repetitive Islamic patterns and motifs on the mosque. Tfs!
