This is a great panorama of Marseille. The huge castle dominates the scene, but we can still see details of the city and the marina on the right, and the mountains in the background. It gives a feeling of being right there.

This photo shows how the village is molded onto the hill, almost as if it has grown up out of the ground. This effect is enhanced by the wide angle lens. And it looks so clean too. The blue sky gives a good backdrop to the white and gold of the town.

The photo has a great atmosphere, good sharpness and depth of field. The symmetry of the reflection works well. You were lucky to get to see the Alhambra at night - it seems to be far less crowded than during the day.

Wonderful photo showing the brilliant lighting effects on the Opera House. Sharpness, exposure and colour are great. I was there this year (my first time), and I know it was difficult to get a decent photo because the images kept changing, but the low light levels meant long exposure times which blurred the fast moving projected images.
It's worth noting that this image is a faithful reproduction of how the Opera House looked in the mid 1960s, when the tiled roof had not been finished. The framework you see is still actually there, under the white ceramic tiles.

If you are referring to the round slightly bright shape at the bottom left, then what is it a ghost of? A beach ball? Let's weight up the possibilities here. It could be a weak flare from one of several light sources around here (the pool appears to have lights in it, and there are white surfaces reflecting light on the right). Or it could be a ghost, something that does not exist. Which would you opt for?
Anyway, the photo has interesting light effects in the water and nice clouds in the sky.

A good idea for a photo, highlighting the pink phone, echoed by the pink flowers (valerian, I think). Nice Swiss countryside and beautiful blue sky.
I looked at Google Earth and found that this photo was taken 450 metres west of the Wengernalp station. The mountain in shadow on the left is the Beitenhorn.

A colorful view of the reefs with beautiful blues and greens. The lack of a horizon gives it a slightly giddying feel.
Unfortunately the Australian government seems to have declared war on the environment, not to mention the poor, sick and vulnerable. And the company that spilled waste from a nickel mine into the reef waters is owned Clive Palmer, another politician. We are living in a new dark age!
