    Hello Chris,
    It would have been nicer to find this in Iraq, but it felt natural to German archaeologists 100 years ago to steal the bricks and bring them home. It is a magnificent creation getting more lively at the bottom where the heads of tourists mingle in an amusing way with the very naturally depicted lions. You used the rather sparse light in the old museum very well.

    Hello Bev,
    This photo (and one of the WS) seems to confirm my impression that this looks more like an airport than a train station. I am more used to seeing modern, elegant designs (and clean floors) in airports, whereas many train stations look almost the same as 50 years ago, or more. There is really an abundance of curves here, including around the roof windows. From this angle the entire view seems to be flowing gently. The light is also very good.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Mesut,
    This was an amusing view, but nobody else seems to have noticed the dog expressing its feelings of comfort and joy. I see at least three persons finding their mobile phones more interesting. You used your time the best.
    I wish you a nice Sunday,

    Hello Jorge,
    I am more enthusiastic at this kind of illuminations in the city, rather than inside a cave. The effect of this coloured light in the darkness of the night is quite stunning, and the photo is very well exposed. A small formality: The name of the country is actually People's Republic... :-)

    Hello Krzysztof,
    I am a bit surprised to find a building like this in a Polish park (but someone may express his disgust at my ignorance). It's a pretty little "pagoda" very nicely surrounded by trees. The parasols slightly disturb the view, but they tell us we have found a nice place for a beer, or some other refreshments. As usual your photo is technically excellent.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Miguel,
    Although I only see three turbans this photo indicates that Amritsar is the "capital of Sikhism". The grey dullness of the building is mostly hidden by the great number of colourful signs. The photo has a very pleasant light and fine colours.

    Hello Nicolas,
    A very carefully composed photo with one lonely tree close to us and the dense forest in the background. The brown parts of some of the trees and the dark area under the nearest tree are attractive details. This shows once again your talent of seeing the small elements that make a composition interesting.
    Best regards,

    Hello Pavle,
    There is a "forest" of brick roofs nearest us and a real small forest further away. The autumn colours of the trees are very beautiful and match the orange roofs well.

    Hej Lars,
    Grattis på födelsedagen! ;-) Detta är en bild helt i din stil: en pampig byggnad i en perfekt symmetrisk komposition och väldigt bra ljus och färger. Grått och grönt går väldigt bra ihop.

    Hello Ryszard,
    Another very elegant composition from this nice castle. I like the contrasts of red domes, orange roof and green vegetation. You found an angle with a good balance between building and surrounding trees. Light and colours are superb.

    Hello Ian,
    Just for fun I checked to see what this would look like in B&W. The difference was negligible. ;-) The title you chose is quite relevant. This looks like all hell could break loose any moment. It's a fascinating composition.

    Bonjour Nicolas,
    beautiful composition!
    The array of trees is so pretty and the winter scenery do decorative here.
    I like the autumnal color touch among the trees.
    The lone tree in the foreground seems to protect the ground from the snow adding a lovely circle below.
    Very well seen and captured!!
