a really beautiful and charmy section of the famous Venice,with the falling light on the houses to make the image even more effective.The gondolier on the foreground is placed perfect in the frame.

excellent the timing of the shot with the passing by woman to looks to the advertisement from for a dance program.I like the excellent light and colour management as the excellent placement of the woman in the frame.

it's the first time that i see elephant stables! Excellent presentation with the house of the Royal household to be placed perfect on the backdrop of the image.The placement of the tree in the frame is well placed.

The church is fairly plain and simple, but the lack of decorations gives it a look of dignified elegance, indicating that there are more important aspects than impressing the visitors. I like the mild tones of the façade and the fine colours of the photo.

This is a postcard kind of view which offers us so many details to watch. I can see that there are many places I would like to explore on foot. There seems to be many beautiful houses and a fine view of the river, including the bridge. Your photo has an exceptionally good clarity with fine contrasts and well saturated colours.

In spite of some clouds it looks like you had a generally nice and sunny day (a lot better than here). The light still looks almost as warm as in summer and it has given the colours of the boat and the house very nice and naturally saturated tones. This is a fairly plain but still very enjoyable view.

I like how you have used the tree and its shadow cleverly to balance the composition by framing the row of elephant stables on both sides. The old stables look so beautifully decorated that I could have imagined them to be part of a temple. The midday sun is very strong but yet the colours are pleasantly mild and the contrasts are well handled. It's artistically and technically a well taken photo.

This is a very neatly cropped photo with a good balance and very nicely matching colours. Among the many fine small details I am especially fond of the straws seen in front of the wheel.

It seems new sports are invented all the time, and why not? There is more to life than baseball or ice-hockey. This looks quite exciting and the yellow sail adds a fine splash of color, as well as contrasting nicely with the water.

I smiled when seeing the title, but I didn't know I would be laughing out loud when reading the note. Honestly the note is more interesting than the photo, but of course showing this view with that sign is an opportunity you just couldn't resist. Anyway, the photo is quite nice, with good light and fine depth and the interesting white dots spread all over the field. But of course it's just a pretext for writing the note. It really proves the importance of well written notes for teaching us about the world.

The slightly hazy mountain forms an impressive backdrop to the green hut. This is an interesting composition where you have made this rather humble building look almost magic because of the strong light on the wall. The strong contrasts make the foreground almost jump at us.

Ellora and Ajanta are among the places I have regrettably missed in India. I am sure they are magical places, which this photo indicates. You have used the light very well and achieved perfect sharpness on the statues. It is a very nicely symmetric composition.

Thinking you were still in the Philippines I was very surprised to see this. This is an idyllic view of a kind I wouldn't expect in the Far East. It's a very nice building with a beautiful roof and fine red details. It is nicely situated by the canal and seen from a fine POV.

I would call this a technically and artistically superb photo. The fantastic architectural details are perfectly seen and enjoyed thanks to the fine light and sharpness. I think this version is the best, at least clearly better than the most heavily saturated.

Trevlig bild, men väldigt långt från Mongoliet. Har du redan slut på dem?
Här gör du än en gång lyckat sällskap med Wolfgang. Vi är nog många som är inspirerade av honom men det är svårt att nå hans klass, men detta är nog på den nivån. Kvinnan är förstås väl placerad men döljer sina egna ögon. Färgskalan är också häpnadsväckande bra. Alla toner passar in i varandra. Kul rubrik också.
