    Hello Malgo,

    An interesting old mosque that benefits from its austere construction which shifts attention to the textures and repetition of the columns. The people provide scale. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio,

    The secondary golden bronze statue in the bg adds depth and perspective as well as a secondary focal point near the vanishing point. Good sharpness and lighting. Tfs!

    Ciao Luciano,

    More like a nightmare than just a bad dream! Good sharpness and fantastic to see life starting to return to normal in Italy and Spain too. I like the warm cold color contrasts of blue and yellow. Tfs!

    Hello Rob

    Good inclusion of the musicians to add interest to the impressive cathedral interior. I wonder if they accompany the organ pipe? Nice repetition of the Gothic arches. Well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Hello Ian,

    Perhaps it was once a market / agora similar to the one I saw in Izmir, Turkey, which was filled up with sand, dirt and trash over the centuries but used to have shops either side of the arches, with a drainage canal down the centre. Many old fortresses had villages within the citadel walls. Tfs!

    Witaj Chris,

    From the thumbnail it looked like a dwarfs cottage from a fairy-tale, but on closer inspection its clearly a shrine with a statue of the Virgin Mary & an icon of Jesus protected from the elements by a pane of glass. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    The 2nd time I went to Sukhothai with my mother it was Children's Day and we got a free shuttle bus all around to the various temples. I had more time the 1st trip alone and hired a bike to get around. You were lucky to catch the saffron robed monks. Tfs!

    Hello Bev,

    These European wasps have become a pest in southern Australia in Tasmania and Melbourne. They crawl down drink straws seeking sugar and sting if swallowed. Not as bad as murder hornets from Japan though, which kills many honey bees. Good use of a shallow dof with superb sharpness. Tfs!
