Special thanks for so interesting and informative note. I also like this illustration of your note. It reminds me my trip to Sri Lanka. One of the most impotant places for Buddhists of the world.
I see Hong Kong is not so small area if they have a place for so big statue.

Another perfect photo from MAlta. Wow! Outstanding DoF, as a result of good exposure, excellent details of local architecture. Well, I'd like to join to you with my camera for so useful trip.
Best wishes from Russia!

The modern red and blue logo atop the old building looks strangely incongruous. Good sharpness and effective tight framing with good management of perspective. I might have boosted contrast a little. I like the subtle warm cold color contrasts between the pale red and blue. The passing fg boat at right makes a good centre of interest. Tfs!

Another interesting photo from Cadiz. Good balance between the domes on the background and this street lamp on the foreground. I see this is not so fresh photo but I like this vertical composition and unobtrusive autumn colours.
All the best wishes,

The white skyscraper looks superb against the backdrop of the clear blue sky. Good sharpness and a fine upward pov. A nice warm cold color contrast too between the red bus at right and the blue sky. The diagonal pedestrian overpass adds dynamism. Tfs!

I like the warm vs cold color contrast between the blue sky and the rose colored snow at right. Good sharpness and the majestic, solitary snow-capped peak makes a fine backdrop and focal point. Nice repetition of the zig zag ski and walking trails at right in the fg snow. Tfs!

Wonderful graphic elements and superb repetition of the repeating motif of the lamps with excellent sharpness considering this was shot at night, and punchy light contrasts. I like the v shaped formation and the bright yellow orange color of the lights as well as the added graphism of the black Japanese text. Tfs!

Perfect density levels that have given crisp clean whites and blacks as well as superb saturation and punchy light contrasts. The angled pov in this pleasant French street scene adds dynamism. The empty tables and chairs invite strollers by for an al fresco meal and drink. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red magenta and blue. I like the diamond patterns and their repetition in the brickwork. Tfs!

un'altro luogo di culto da aggiungere alla tua ricca collezione.
Questa volta di strada ne hai fatta poca, però al contrario della mia non c'è nebbia ed è meglio perchè invece di nascondere le sconcezze (hai pienamente ragione!) qui la luce permette di evidenziare la bellezza e la cura del luogo.
Ciao e buona serata

I like the low placed horizon with focus on the amazing sunset skies with their superb warm vs cold color contrast between the blue and orange. Good sharpness and excellent saturation & framing. Nice silhouettes of the mosques at right. Presumably the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia or Aya Sofia. Good density levels and punchy light contrast. Tfs!

Simple idea but excellent result, clever idea to take this point of view, good balanced composition with the green branches on the foreground. Perfect DoF and very nice colours!
Greetings from Russia!

Perhaps a little more sharpness especially in the front. I like the warm vs cold color contrast between the orange reflections on the street at left and the blue shadows both at the top and at right. A superb daily life scene with excellent saturation and effective tight framing. Tfs!

Lovely reflections in the clear blue sea with good sharpness, colour and saturation. The orange buoys contrast well against the blue sea and sky. The bg town almost all in white hugging the shoreline makes a suitable focal point. The reddish brown mountains contrast well against the blue sky to give a superb warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

Apart from a little unsharpness in the fg (perhaps from the post processing?) this is great. Smart choice of a vertical format and the red flowered hanging basket compliments the bg pink wall perfectly. Well framed and composed with excellent saturation and color balance. A good exposure on the bright highlights at right. Tfs!

It's just one of the best your photos for last weeks!
Impressive evening view, but these green stones on the foreground just make me smile. Good bonus for the composition.
I see you've got a process of rehabilitation on Hawaii.
Best wishes to you and your family!
