    Hello Nicolas

    A good macro shot of these native wildflowers, with excellent use of selective focus and shallow dof. Plus the pink and mauve colours are eye catching. Tfs!

    Hello Luciano

    The 4 columns look like giant golf ball tees. But their blue and yellow colour contrasts are superb. Wonderful sharpness and perspective. Tfs!

    Hello Abmdsudi,

    I rather liked Lijiang with its rushing canals and bridges although here the water is sedate enough for some nice reflections. Good colour and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hej Gert,

    My first guess was that this was taken in the 1960's and I wasn't far wrong. Maybe it was the old style cars and clothing, although the bg architecture is timeless. Good tonal range and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello Craig,

    What have we here? A car sandwich? Anyway, good sharpness and a good upward pov. I like the warm cold colour contrast between the red and pink cars with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge,

    Good decision to convert to b&w with the white sky. Much of Nanjing was destroyed in WWII. But I am happy to see it has been rebuilt. Good tonal range and sharpness and an interesting note. Tfs!

    Hello Abmdsudi

    I remember the Cangshan Mts. There was a rope-way cablecar almost to the summit and the view from up there was sublime on a sunny day. But here we have a very cloudy day. Good sharpness and high pov above the rooftops. Tfs!

    Hi Murat,

    There's an Athabasca waterfall and glacier in the Canadian Rockies on the way to Jasper. I wonder if there is a connection? Good idea to include a map to show the different tribal lands. Tfs!

    Hello Mariusz,

    The black sand beach hints at past volcanic eruptions. One thing I did notice on black sand beaches is that they are twice as hot as white sand, which reflects some of the heat. Tfs!

    Hello Mesut

    At first I thought the blue flowering plant at right was hydrangea, but the shape of the leaves is very different. A superb daily life scene of the old man drinking bottles tea, with good sharpness. Tfs!
