    Ciao Jorge,

    Yangshuo is half the price of Guilin so savy tourists head there instead of Guilin. But the entire Li River between Guilin and Yangshuo is spectacular so it's a win win situation whichever city you choose. I like the little umbrella with tables and chairs at bottom right. Tfs!

    Hello Serge,

    The old wooden fenced bridge provides superb lead in lines and perspective. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. The Fall colors of red contrasting with the blue sky enhance the shot. Tfs!

    Hi Paja,

    It is sad to see that the trains have stopped running. In Mokra Gora they have made it into a tourists attraction for people who want to experience the old fashioned style of travel. The trucks and excavator appear to be removing gravel from the river bed. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    A superb Autumn landscape with wonderful warm colours of yellow and red to contrast against the reflected blue grey skylight in the water. Good sharpness nd framing. Tfs!

    Ciao Krzysztof,

    The oriental style stone bridge in the bg adds charm to this rustic looking park. Good sharpness and nice reflections in the water. The families at left with their prams animate the scene. Tfs!

    Bonjour, Jean

    There were 6 of the baby panda cubs when I was there in 2000, but I only had an analogue film camera which was difficult to use in low light. Digital is so much better in such conditions and especially at night and blue hour. Good sharpness and fluffiness! Tfs!

    Hello Sergio,

    Spooky! It's not quite a ghost town with 19 people still living there and there are signs here and there that people are still living here. But for sure its odd to see an empty street like this. Good sharpness and nice warm vs cold colour contrasts. Tfs!

    Hello Kari

    Germany has every reason to celebrate reunification after the end of the cold war in 1989. Hard to believe that 30 years has gone by already. The laser show using red roses has been promptly captured. I am sure a few seconds later the scene had changed again. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre

    Of the many shots that you have posted of these baths, this one is my favourite, smartly using the arch to both frame the bg ruins and provide depth and layering, as well as nice tonal contrasts between highlights and shadows. Tfs!

    Hi Ian

    Missed this one. Craig will love it. The old abandoned house seems to have the foundations being steadily eroded from underneath it. Good sharpness and yesterday Brisbane's air quality was worse than Beijing! On account of all the northern NSW fires and a few local ones of our own which is highly unusual for Qld. No real rain here since June.

    Hello Silvio,

    I like the alignment of the rustic village along a ridge line. Good sharpness, colour and saturation and no surprise that the parish church is the highest structure in town. Tfs!

    Bonjour Miguel,

    The business man in the white shirt looks confused and the man in the bright yellow vest seems to be a security guard. Good sharpness and nice capture of this lively street market scene. Tfs!

    Hello Mesut,

    I spotted a seagull atop the building surveying the pigeons and any spare simit crumbs! Good sharpness in this superb daily life scene and the rusty sculpture provides a strong focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge,

    For a traditional bridge that is supposed to look very old, the new roof looks surprisingly modern. If you ever go back to China the town of Yangzhou (outside Nanjing) with Slender West Lake is the 'real McCoy' as they say in the USA. The odd looking totem pole structures in the bg interest me more. Tfs!

    Hello Nicolas,

    Looks a bit chilly and pleasant to look at on a hot Spring day of 31c in Brisbane. 38c in Sydney today. The oblique slope adds dynamism. Good sharpness and repetition of the snowclad conifers which remind me of Fagaras in Romania. Tfs!

    The roofs are instantly recognisable as the work of Gaudi. Good sharpness and a terrific downward pov. The people provide scale and animate the scene. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    It's surprising to see a swimming pool in this desert region. Must be a desalination plant nearby or lots of groundwater. Good sharpness and the yellow ochre color of the building's facade contrasts well with the blue sky and water. Tfs!

    The orange red colour of the car and the black section in the hood / bonnet attract attention. Good sharpness and a superb angled pov. The white car at left is also interesting. Tfs!
