Salam Sayeed. Interesting as to what you write about the grumpiness of the older men. I found Moroccans particularly hostile towards people with cameras and they seem to have developed a sixth sense in knowing when a camera is pointing towards them, even if the said person and camera are in a moving bus that is rocketing towards them as they ride on a donkey by the roadside. Maybe the unfriendliness towards foreigners has something to do with a long memory of colonial days or just an innate pride of the Berbers and their independent spirit. Anyway, I like the shot as the old man has the same sentiments as I do about baseball caps- his obvious desire is to kill it with the shovel and then to make sure, to bury it. For me they are a symbol of the increasing homogeneity of the world, loss of local culture and the cultural imperialism implied, not to mention exploitation of the workers in third world countries. Sorry, had to get that off my chest. Regards. Klaudio.

beautiful landscape. I like so much volcanic landscapes due to their amazing colors. Fantastic composition here with the crater making and interesting foreground and nice paths behind contributing to geometry. Presence of people helps to imagine the scale.

wow this is a spectacular work. Fantastic processing here. Motif of the gate opening to a church was used by me several times in photos of churches in Ireland but you have used this idea so well, I like also the palm trees adding some more exotic touch here.
Very impressive, no words to give it a justice!

I cross my fingers for Scotland now and for it choosing the right way, whatever it may be...
I think I could guess your vote :)
Very funny capture here: the hairy bodies of men look so funny in the ballet dresses. There is some sort of contrast in it.
Nice close up of the performers.

this is really impressive! It reminds me the Apostles in Australia (which I know form photos only) This seems possibly even bigger. Fantastic composition I like very much the presence of the person with a dog it adds so much life and interest and they were place here by you in the very best spot! I like the subtle mist further in the distance. Beautiful spot -perfectly used opportunity.

this is so beautiful that I cannot believe it is real. There are so many colors and variety of such different layers that it looks more like a painting that a photograph. Spectacular view, perfectly showed here by you.

beautiful little town. I have never heard about it before. It seems that the whole Alsace is packed fully with beautiful places and so photogenic. Great capture here with wonderful sky and so much color all around. The architecture seems very unique.

another masterpiece in your collection!
I like how nicely round you managed to preserve the sun shape. It is usually quite challenging. The silhouettes make strong points here: the one of the lighthouse but also the little boat far in the distance.

interesting atmosphere with the sunrise subtly appearing and painting the sky with warm colors. Great hotel, very elegant and expensive :) I like the two layers of the cliffs across the lake.
Very well done,
