I'd imagine this dish of stewed peppers would be very popular in mid winter in Hungary. In Australia they are called capsicums, but some places call them bell peppers. They are nowhere near as hot as chili peppers. You were spoilt for choice with the international cuisine. Tfs!

I have to say that entering Israel after Sinai was like going from Sumatra to Singapore. And the gruff arrival and stringent security checks I was expecting in Eilat didn't eventuate. Instead it was the Egyptian immigration officials at Taba border who gave me a hard time, wanting to play my cd's and open files in my laptop. And ignored 3 requests to please pick up papers and brochures he had dropped under the xray machine when he carelessly grabbed my laptop bag. He found nothing on my laptop of course. And seemed bored listening to the Beatles. Anyway enough of him. I am in Jordan now and they too were a lot friendlier than Taba. The texture of the curved bg building adds interest here and the people provide scale and animate the scene. Tfs!

Good sharpness and I like the long, sweeping curve of the building. Like much of Dresden I am sure it was destroyed and rebuilt post 1945.
The seated couple add scale. Tfs!

Good morning Rob,
The blue colors and their various shades and hues work well here and the splashes of yellow add a warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and smart choice of a vertical frame. The people animate the scene & add scale. Tfs!

I've found it challenging sometimes to shoot European cities with the tram-wires seemingly all over the place. Only Melbourne still has trams in Australia. But here you've used the overhead wires to your advantage, with them mirroring the tram tracks below to enhance perspective. Tfs!
