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!

A strange-looking building, and a surprise to see it is in Iran. It looks like it could be on a Pacific island, with the thatched roof and the palm tree. But the eucalyptus tree on the left is very Australian. Good light on the building.

The photo has come out very well, even though you are looking into the sun. There is enough detail in the shadows to see this classical building well. The front-on view is nice and symmetrical, and shows the building in its rugged environment. The clouds look good too.
