A very fine church which certainly must have adorned a postcard or two. I like the warm light and fine colours and the palm-tree in front of the church. From this POV the church looks quite big, but my impressions from a few visits to Thessaloniki was that the old Byzantine churches looked so very small in comparison to the new buildings surrounding them.

I guess you are refering to Kiev in Ukraine as "the other famous city" built on seven hills ;-). Otherwise there doesn't seem to be any resemblance between downtown Kampala and any other famous city. It is certainly crowded and looks quite exciting and i know visitors generally appreciate Kampala. It also looks like the kind of place where people will always be stepping in front of the camera when you attempt street-photography. I love the warm light and the bright colours.

interesting modern sculpture. You show it in the context of the location. I think it would be interesting to see it closer too to be able to see the details. Amazing weather, I am so jealous about it.
I am praying for a peace in your country,

this is so beautiful. I love deserts. I had a pleasure to live in California for a couple of years and had a bit taste of it. I loved it. This seems like a place which I would like to visit frequently. I did not know you have such landscapes so close to Sydney, I thought they are more in the center or in the west.
Fantastic light emphasized the extraordinary pattern.
A real master piece of nature and of you.

the streets seem so full of history :)
Of course I know this story but I would not be able to associate it with the pub. Nice street scene and the people walking the street not only don't disturb but even add a nice touch, some life to the scene.
very well spotted. I have to take more photos with people I guess. What I like in this photo is feeling of luminosity, it seems so bright and colorful although there is no direct sunlight or so it seems.

I had a pleasure to visit this lovely town and although so pretty I have to say it is very challenging to present it. The streets are narrow and very strong light with strong contrasts. You have selected a nice spot here, the square is so full of color and charming townhouses. Plus there are palm trees and elegant lamps for decoration, Very well done,

in black and white one could argue it is a photo of a desert ;) Similar geometry :) What mainly differs is the fresh green color.
Beautiful scene well spotted. I like the trails of the tractor which add more interest and of course the farm buildings on the horizon with the pointy trees.

very well spotted! The light quite challenging although very atmospheric, full of mood. But the composition is fantastic without a doubt!
And great idea for a title as well, it is so accurate and funny.

this is so beautiful, I have seen your or Tosca's photos from this hike on FB already. It is truly jaw-dropping and with your usual high quality it works really impressive. I like the greenish color of the water and a combination of clarity with reflection -so unusual, so beautiful effect. Great sky as well on top of it. Excellent light. I can't believe it is so close to you and you first went to Iceland before going here! I am so jealous you have such beautiful spots around.

great time of the day. it seems they illuminate the town quite early and you have well used this opportunity here. Nice perspective showing two gates on two different levels it works quite surprising when one think about it.
I had a pleasure to visit this wonderful town long time ago. It seems to be one of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe. And the Christmas shop is open there all year round :)
