    Hello Lars,

    I detect strong European origins in the superb architecture of this city hall, such as the ancient Greek style columns and the figurehead buttresses by the front doors appearing to support the columns. Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    I like the repetition of the raised fishing net traps & the superb sharpness and blue tints in this terrific almost nocturnal shot. Good reflections in the wet sand. Tfs!

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    The portrait painting of a former castle owner is well framed by the rough stone door with exposed foundations & earthy textures and colors. Tfs!

    Hello Costantino,

    A lovely summer memory with good sharpness and excellent repetition of the thatched umbrellas. Nice reflections in the fg water. The yellow deck chair contrasts well with the blue sea.

    Bonjour, Nicolas,

    It's amazing how ordinary, everyday objects outdoors can be turned into temporary works of art after a heavy snowfall, like these stairs. Tfs!

    The motion blurred snowflakes give this image an abstract look. Good graphism with the ghostly grey tree providing a strong focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    A stark contrast in architectural styles with good sharpness, color and saturation. The tower block apartment buildings along the foreshore contrast well with the 2 story dwellings atop the cliffs. Tfs!

    Hi Stephen,

    I am sure that Craig, as a loyal Canadian, will point out that a real Canadian maple leaf only has 5 pointed sides, not 7.

    https://www.wikihow.com/images/6/60/1565786--12.JPG

    Nothing against the Indian advertisers, apparently the 7 or even 9 point design is common in China, and Canadians I know bought one embossed on a coffee mug for a laugh. Tfs!

    Ciao Alex.

    Even though it was built some time ago it still retains a stylish, futuristic look and atmosphere. The family add scale. Good sharpness and repetition of the diamond shapes in the huge torch like structure at right. Tfs!

    Hello Beverley,

    I had very little interest in the shopping available upon the bridge so quickly moved to both sides of the bridge to get a nice wide angle shot, but this closer view does give an idea of the chaotic conditions of many tourists itching to part with some their hard earned cash. Tfs!

    Hi Gert

    Reminds me a bit of my first visit to Bangkok where slums were everywhere on the way from the airport to the city, including under the expressway and bridges. Bit of a shock at first sight for most Westerners, but after a while you get used to it. And this is the Calcutta that Mother Teresa felt so compassionately about, so your photo kind of puts it all into perspective. Tfs!

    There sure are a lot of rooms in this castle museum! You would love Peles Castle in Romania. The b&w photos of the old lady add interest to the writing desk & chair. Tfs!

    A bizarre topiary with the blue legs and torso protruding from the bonnet, but somehow it works! Good sharpness and the floral mini minor is quaint. Tfs!

    This is quite a famous and iconic landmark of Rome. Unfortunately I did not have time to visit before my evening train to Florence. Good sharpness and nice subtle reflections in the Tiber. The old stone bridge makes a good focal point. Tfs!

    Missed this one. A superb reflection of the al fresco dining people reflected in the mirror. Good color, saturation and a ready made frame! I have been to Lucca and spent a few hours wandering around town before my train to Genova. Tfs!
