    Hi Krzysztof,

    Well managed interior lighting with the open windows augmenting the available light. Good sharpness and nice reflections in the polished wooden floorboards. Tfs!

    Hi Murat

    A good front on view of the cupboard doors with excellent sharpness and symmetry. I know what you mean about renovations. The Statue of Neptune fountain in Bologna was completed covered in scaffolding when I visited and the Himeji Castle between Osaka & Hiroshima too, although I did see it from the bullet train sans scaffolding in 2006. Tfs!

    Hej Gert

    You found an excellent pov atop the hill overlooking Knight's Island. The red brick spire of the church is well positioned on the 1/3 axis point and the red and green tugboat makes a colourful fg focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Ian

    The yellow green mossy roof stands out well against the blue sea and sky. Well framed and composed using the rule of thirds. I like the wide angled panoramic crop. Tfs!

    Hi Mariusz,

    It's always nice to find a hidden gem that the tourist brochures and guidebooks have largely overlooked. An unusual building displaying features of both a castle and a Church. Good sharpness and colour. Tfs!

    Hello Kari,

    I came in by Viking boat from Stockholm and also left the same way to Tallinn in Estonia. So I am not familiar with the Helsinki airport. Good aerial view with superb sharpness. I didn't find Helsinki 'hellish' at all. In fact I enjoyed my time there! I had already been to 'hell' in Norway, lol. (Hellesylt). Tfs!

    Hi Murat

    As the main focus here is the architecture of the Harem, rather than the miniscule cat, the image SHOULD be safe from overzealous moderators. In case you weren't aware, after Mehmet posted dozens of close up shots of stray cats in Istanbul, the rules & TOS were changed to "no wild or pet cats". The golden tones of the bg arches attracted my attention. Tfs!

    Hi Elaine,

    A superb dual portrait of the mother and her baby. Or possibly the grandmother? Yes, your note confirms her as the grandmother. The weathered lines in the old woman's face are well captured here. Tfs!

    Hi Daniel

    This would be a nice island to be dropped off at for a couple of hours to just swim and enjoy the solitude. The tiny yachts and bg clouds on the horizon add focal points. Tfs!

    Hi Ian

    Stay safe. The Delta variant is leaking out all over the place from Sydney. Excellent sharpness and the diagonal axis of the street adds good dynamism. The lady in red and her pram provide a strong focal point. Tfs!

    Ciao Luciano

    Almost without exception the interiors of most Italian Cathedrals are spectacular, and here is no different. In the rare cases where the inside wasn't impressive, the exterior was. Well managed low light levels, with wonderful frescoes on the walls and ceiling. Tfs!

    Hello Robert,

    A good capture of this warm and intimate moment. It shows so little but shows so much if that makes sense. The body language says it all. We don't have to see their faces. Tfs!
