It would be a difficult choice for the judges to make for the best entries as they all look great. I like the 2 Eiffel towers and Colosseum. Good color and sharpness in this delightful and delicious looking montage of images. Tfs!

I really enjoyed my 1/2 day trip to Ravello in 2013 even though I just listened to a trombone and trumpet band in the main piazza and just wandered around aimlessly with no set plan. The green and red ivy clinging to the wall here is amazing. Tfs!

Hi dear Malgo
Its also dropped to -18c here in west Romania and in the south east they just had a red alert blizzard that cut power to 146 towns. The nuclear reactor on the Danube had to shut down Fortunately for me only 3 inches of snow and not so windy. Not weather I would like to ride a bike in! The nocturnal shot of the illuminated flowers looks great, but you'll have to wait until late March to see real ones!

This one caught my eye and held it. I like the wavering patterns in the piazza and the woman's legs boots and derriere are also easy on the eye. She adds a human element too. Good sharpness and tonal range. Tfs!

The road here provides strong lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. The bands of snow remaining on the nearly bare rocky mountain tops add graphism. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. Tfs!

I spent 3 days in Dacca in 2000 and we had Indian rice, Chinese rice, and Bangla style rice for meals each day. I like the inclusion of three baskets in the fg in front of the seated man. The repetition of tha sacks of rice behind him is also good. Tfs!

A magnificent sunset with 41 views. There must be a lot of automated bots scanning it without comment. Good color and saturation and a nice warm cold color contrast between the blue and orange. Excellent sharpness and perspective too. Tfs!

I might have increased brightness and added more highlights and shadows to give greater contrast. Good sharpness and a cool idea to present it in vertical format. Good sharpness and excellent reflections and repetition of the sheep. Tfs!

I like the square format and the delicious looking food. Perhaps a less shallow dof to get the fg sharply in focus. But the candle, baked pumpkin and oranges are in perfect focus. Good color and arrangement. Tfs!
