Ciao Mauro and a big welcome back
It's a dream of mine to one day visit Sicily. The textural and tonal details revealed by the sidelight falling on the weathered columns at left are superb. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and yellow-red hued earth and ruins. Tfs.

Wow! Missed this one. Incredible repetition of the seabirds with fantastic graphic elements of their dark shadowed bodies against the white surf. The blue water alos sets up a good warm cold color contrast with the yellow red sand on the beach at left. Tfs.

Here the mountains look like an erupting volcano, with the cloud generated by the microclimate of the higher terrain apparently emitting out of the mountain itself at right. Good textural and tonal details in the snow. Tfs.

Your hike up from the carpark paid dividends in this superb shot. Good warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the yellow tints in the jagged peaks of Torres del Paine. Excellent sharpness and framing. You were brave to go there in mid winter! Tfs.

Nice to see that life goes on, even after 9/11 which destroyed the twin towers of the former WTC. The new Freedom Tower at left is standing tall and proud. The solitary yacht adds interest to the harbour. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs.

Chicago has the look of Melbourne in Australia. Good sharpness and a superb aerial view, presumably from yet another skyscraper. The blue colour of bg Lake Michigan contrasts well against the soft yellow sunlight bathing the forest of highrise buildings. Tfs.

Bonjour Nicolas ,
This one looks a little oversharpened but caught my eye anyway because it reminded me of a similar rural scene with cattle that could just as easily be in east coast Australia. The light is superb and the diagonal track adds strong lead in lines. Well cropped and composed. Tfs.

Effective tight framing in this superb daily life scene from modern China. Apparently Marco Polo brought back the idea for noodles to Italy as spaghetti starts appearing in Italy around the same time. They substituted wheat for rice. Good smiles on the waitresses too that look authentic. Tfs.
