    Hello Nicolas,

    From this angle it looks like the shadow of the whip has made contact with the arch. Ouch! The window shutters with the embossed designs contrast well with the plain window at left. The log barrows with flowers add a splash of colour. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo

    Its fun to see kids like this enjoying themselves. I just worry when I see 35-40 year olds doing the same at Luxor, or 50 year olds riding skateboards. Don't they ever grow up? Still as long as they are not hurting anybody I should mind my own business. Colourful costumes in the red and white Polish colours. Tfs!

    A clever juxtaposing of the mirrored sunset at left and the snow capped rocky alps at right. Good colour contrasts between the orange and blue grey tones. Excellent sharpness too. Tfs!

    Hi Craig,

    The arched framing of the blue sky and green fields at left is superb. The 2 seats have a front row view. Good sharpness and nice repetition of patterns and shapes in the functional but attractive ceiling. Tfs!

    Hi Danos

    This looks like a good spot for a coffee and perhaps a plate of calamari with lemon basil. The fish net across the ceiling adds mood and atmosphere. Good sharpness and perspective. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge,

    Good sharpness and framing with the clocktower providing a strong focal point. I will have to look up the meaning of 'cives posuerunt' Not words I have seen before & looks French or Latin in origin. Tfs!

    The clock tower bears a Royal coat of arms and the inscription ‘Victoriae Reginae Dei Gratia L Annos Feliciter Regnanti Cives Posuerunt’ which translates as ‘For Victoria, Queen by the grace of God, in commemoration of 50 years of fortunate reign; erected by the citizens.’

    Hello Piotr,

    I have good memories of this town. Did you walk through the canyon between those cliffs to the other side? I wasn't even aware this was possible when I was there. Spotted a road and footpath on a satellite image of the town that I looked at later. The power plant and silos balance the composition here. Tfs!

    This is a widespread custom around Asia where fisherman paint an eye on the prow to ward off bad luck and evil spirits so they have a good catch and get home safely avoiding typhoons and storms. Good close up with excellent sharpness. Tfs!
