    Hello Jean

    Good to see the catchment area partly revegetated, in stark contrast to the denuded hillside at right. The blue lake is an eye-catching focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Jean

    At first glance this looks like the wilds of Madagascar or Africa, but then we notice the vegetation is hardly tropical and the granite tors you mention as well. God sharpness and a fine elevated view. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    A good aerial shot of the Ottawa River with the ethereal layer of mist and cloud in the bg adding mood and atmosphere. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    Hi Paul

    Good repetition of the columns and arches, with the painted fašade adding interest. The worshippers animate the scene and the 2 seated girls seem disinterested in the proceedings. Tfs!

    Hi Murat

    It's the same story in Romania where the Soviet Union built a dam at the Iron Gates Gorge, preventing the sturgeon from swimming upstream and spawning. Once they could get upriver as far as Vienna and even to Germany. Conversely Luciano mentioned they are thriving in Italy but have become a serious pest, displacing native fish. Tfs!

    There are several interesting gorges in Crete but I was there in August when it has very hot and not recommended to hike. Good aerial view down the valley from the lookout. Tfs!

    A wonderful blue sky backdrop with good sharpness and framing. The warm reddish brown colours of the building's exterior contrast well with the blue sky too. Tfs!

    Hi Ian

    The small tears and perforations in the drum probably mean it can no longer be played or struck, but at least it survives. I was horrified that some sections of the imperial city were napalmed during the American / Vietnam War and severely damaged. Tfs!

    Indeed, it does look flooded and further exploration beyond the steps would not be practicable without a canoe! Tfs!

    A good upward pov with excellent sharpness and a good angled pov showing 2 fašades of the building. Rome is altogether a more attractive city than Naples. Tfs!

    Bonjour Jacques

    I like the repetitive and graphic nature of the empty seats. The bg row of white tent like structures adds interest. Good sharpness and framing. Merci pour le partage.

    Hej Gert

    I like the tiered appearance of the bg cliffs and terraces in 5 distinct layers. The copper colored cupola at left adds depth and layering. The little black locomotive high atop the cupola is quaint. Tfs!

    I like the cracked and peeling texture of the paint although I am sure it is a restoration artist's worst nightmare. Good sharpness and tight framing with a soft, diffused light. Tfs!

    Hello Daniel

    I like several things about this shot:

    (i) The ominous looking cloud shrouding the summit of Vesuvius
    (ii) The wide angled panoramic crop
    (iii) The bright red jacket of the woman at right vs blue tones
    (iv) The Centaur statue at left.

    I spent 8 hours walking around this huge sprawling site! You found a very interesting corner. Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    The overhanging branches have given this African woman's portrait a green hairstyle! Perhaps she is a real person born in France? The observer at right in the yellow green jacket balances the composition. Tfs!
