    Hi Craig

    I see nothing at all wrong with this building. It's clean, well maintained and looks like a nice place to live. I would say developers have their eye on big profits from putting up new luxury apartment blocks in a prime location. Heritage laws should be in place & enforced. Tfs!

    Hello Gert,

    At least you were in Aleppo before it was partly destroyed in the current ongoing civil war. Analogue photos are always better than no photos at all. An excellent daily life scene of the sheep being washed. Ramadan / Eid were in February / March 1995, so it probably just needed a wash. Tfs!

    Hello Benny,

    I went on a boat tour of the caves in one of these. Hope your took a cushion or a towel as those seats are uncomfortable after 3 hours. Good sharpness and effective tight framing and repetition. The man provides a good focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Kari,

    I only saw Helsinki so it's good to see some of the other towns in Finland. A superb nocturnal shot of the fountain with good sharpness and superb warm colors and reflections. The blue light at left adds a nice contrast to the red lighting on the water jets. Tfs!

    Hi Paul.

    A superb NYC blue hour. Tropical climates have either very short blue hours or even no blue hour at all. No such problem here. The boat animates the scene and the bridge and bg highrise give good focal points. Tfs!

    Hi Lars

    Missed this one. The colourful roses at left and right make a nice frame of the central brick cottage with its half timbered facade. The wide angled panoramic triptych works well here. Tfs!

    Hi Krzysztof

    A good exterior view of the old brewery. Perhaps a very slight rotation to the right. Good sharpness and the fg illustration at left showing a wider angle provides additional information. Tfs!

    Hello Brenda,

    The old castle is functional and would deter most invaders or pirates back in the day. I like the contrast with the bg modern highrise buildings. Good sharpness and the trees either side act as a frame. The couple provide a focal point and scale. Tfs!

    Hello Odd Jarle,

    I miss these bullet trains. They had them in China & South Korea too. They sound like rockets as they zoom past. Good sharpness and nice motion blur of the central train. The warm sunlight on the rust red rails has given a good warm cold color contrast with the cooler blue tints of the 'shinkansen' & sky. Tfs!

    Hi Lars

    I had planned on visiting the painted hills of Oregon and Yellowstone, but both places were under 7 metres of snow by mid November, so I found alternate places to visit. There are many in the south west of the USA too. Gorgeous warm cold color contrasts and superb sharpness and framing. Tfs!
