    Hi Abmdsudi,
    Beautiful daily life action view from Vietnam. Sidelight is precious, and low angle works well. I like the motion blur on the foot.

    Hi Francesco,
    I had no idea that Italian Alps offer such wonderful colours of eroned hill slopes. Beautiful and colourful mountain landscape. That tree trunk is perfectly placed as a foreground detail.

    Hi Ike,
    Modern glass architecture makes great background to these palms. Cool colour combination of blue and green works well. Vertical framing is just right.

    Hi Takero,
    This effect is just superb, essentially showing motion blur only on those sparkling jewels. Strong feeling of action and great backlight on the feathers.

    That monument is quite original and is perfectly placed on the foreground of this marvellous harbour view. Yellow sunset glow looks great.

    Wide angle give extra attention to the long wings all gliders have. Superb angle, and background shows countless other attendants of these championships.

    That roof structure is already familiar from previous upload. But surprisies continue. Full window wall opening right to a green forest is fabulous! And so unexpected in airport terminal.

    Hi Luciano,
    Wonderful distant place on bright sunshine of Uzbekistan. Selection of merchandise is surprisingly wide on this open air market. And big sign giving welcome to legendary Samarkand is quite impressive. And yes, it sounds like a bad place to sell cheese.

    Hi Silvio,
    This view is so much to your style, it hardly could be of anyone else. Colours of these distant fields are just fantastic. And it is nice to see less usual landscape where background is in shadow and closer fields in bright sunshine.

    Hej Gert,
    So many people like this, so your hesitation was clearly needless. It is fascinating to see rough texture of these old buildings. Paint is almost gone in many surfaces. Extreme framing and almost disappeared perspective give strong artistic impression.
    I have a model railway and this is a good sample for showing how to paint details of old buildings.

    Hi Berndt,
    Hay bale is a classic summer photo theme. This has good contrast between dry hay field and darkish green forest background. Village scene looks quite nice too.

    Hi Tomek,
    Wonderful contrasty view of this classic Corvette. While it clearly hasn't received the attention it deserves, it certaily is photogenic. Lamps closed on the other side and open on the other make a funny appearance.

    Hi Nicou,
    Lovely view of this lake on a high alpine mountain pass. Good reflections and patches of snow give nice contrasts. I've never crossed the Albula pass myself, as it is not accessible by public transport.

    Hi Krzysztof,
    Lovely tele shot of a tow-plane and the glider being pulled up to the sky. On this angle they show appropriately close together. Clear blue sky works well on this simple composition.

    Hi John,
    Excellent tightly framed tele shot of this plane in impressive dark blue colour. I especially like the spinning motion of the propeller.
    But I afraid your title is rubbing salt on Brits who were left out of medals. Stephen is right: this one is British, of the Royal Air Force. And made in United Kingdom too: a Short Tucano manufactured in Northern Ireland.

    Hi Claude,
    superbly succesful panning shot! There's so much blur in the background. And still the cycly and cyclist are as sharp as possible. You have perfect timing showing her with the phone and watching to the wrong direction.

    Hi Malgo,
    Locomotive is one of my favourite subjects too. Especially old one whether they are rusty like this or perfectly restored. Rust is actually very good on enhancing details of otherwise black metal. And so is this brilliant sunshine too.

    Hi Craig,
    That one reminds of an exhibition animal cage. So no wonder he was not eager to be photographed. Scifi kind of environment made me think of a teleportation device too. But that would make airports unnecessary!

    Again a wonderful Douro riverside view. I guess this landscape has not changed much during last decades. Those trams are quite modern though. The couple is perfectly placed and trams balance the view on the opposite corner.

    Lovely Greek island seaside view. Those boats look quite luxurious. Sky is intensively blue. Framing has good balance between water and the village.
