    Ciao Krzysztof

    The khaki colour reminds me of army vehicles. Good sharpness and the soldier mannequin confirms by hunch. The similar colour of the bg forest would make it hard to spot from the air. Tfs!

    Hi Miguel,

    The lush verdant valley makes a stark contrast with the barren dry mountains in the bg. Good sharpness and an excellent elevated vantage point. Tfs!

    Hi Ian,

    I saw lots of these in Carnarvon Gorge National Park in Qld and even a couple at Wilson's Prom in Victoria. Good use of a shallow dof with excellent sharpness on the emu. Makes me laugh when I hear Americans pronounce it as E-MOO! with no 'y' sound, as in 'Eem-you' Papua sounds even worse!

    Hello Jean,

    Fantastic warm vs cold colour contrasts in the sky, with good sharpness and nice partial silhouettes of the rugged mountain peaks capped with snow. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo

    Another vote for pistachios, which I also saw in Turkey and some parts of Italy. The rest of the fresh fruits are not so exotic but still make a nice photo. Tfs!

    Hello Bev,

    The dual wheel tracks and the adjacent wooden fence and stone wall at right all add superb linear perspective. Good sharpness and the reflected blue skylight in the rivulets is a bonus. Tfs!

    Hello Ian,

    I have only ever seen one large brown snake in the outer northern suburbs of Brisbane, but they are also in other areas of the city's outskirts. I was riding a bike at the time and came across it unexpectedly. It shot off like a rat up a drainpipe! But here I can look for more than a second or 2. Hope you used a zoom lens! I did in Sumatra for live crocodiles! Tfs

    Hello Craig

    I was unlucky. The track into this park from the main road from Lake Louise was closed with a prominent sign up 'Danger, Bears'! Apparently there was an attack in October 2008 2 weeks before I arrived. I asked why don't they relocate the bears to Yukon? But that wouldn't work as they are territorial and would not fit in with the other bears, and also they have an amazing ability to find their way back from 1,000's of km away. So sadly, they had to be found by park rangers/RCMP and shot :-( This is Moraine Lake & Valley of the 10 Peaks in Banff National Park. It's not all bad news. I did get to Lake Louise and Lake Agnes Tea-house up past Mirror lake & the beehive. Tfs!

    I could not find anything on a bear attack in or near Lake Louise town but found this on the Sundre attack in Oct 2008:

    Hello Gert,

    I don't recall this part of Van. Perhaps it was destroyed in the 2011 earthquake? It looks similar to ruined mosques and Armenian converted churches I saw in Hasankeyf. Good sharpness and the wheel tracks add lead in lines. Tfs!

    Hi Chris

    An unusual view of the skeletal framework of this vintage car, with excellent sharpness and angled pov. The 6 wheels are unusual. Tfs!

    Hi Lars,

    Yellowstone was covered in 20 feet of snow when I flew over it from Calgary to Denver, so this series is of interest. Looks similar to the tavertine terraces of Pamukkale in Turkey. Tfs!

    Czesc Piotr,

    What a beautiful alpine scene! Reminds me of Dove Lake and Cradle Mountain in Tasmania.

    Nice reflections and the small hut adds a good focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Costantino,

    The apartment blocks might not be architecturally very exciting, but they look clean and modern. Good sharpness and perspective with both the buildings and esplanade converging towards the back in a 'v' shape. Tfs!

    The angled pov adds dynamism and the river and riverbank provide linear perspective. Good sharpness and nice reflections. The green roofed temple at right gives a focal point. Tfs!

    This fountain is huge, judging from the tiny people around it. Good sharpness, with a pleasant diffused light. Excellent graphism and framing. Tfs!
