    Hello Mariusz,

    Even in mid summer it was only 18c. This looks no worse than Romania in winter where it was -21c. Good sharpness and tonal range. Hope you visited the 2 castles north of the city. Tfs!

    Bonjour, Jean,

    Pretty much as I remember Hong Kong except you had a rare blue sky. The smog from neighboring China and its 7 special economic zones needs no passport. I like the small boat in the harbour, dwarfed by the highrise buildings. Tfs!

    Hello Alexandre,

    Looks a little bit like an Australian budgerigar sitting in flowering golden wattle, but of course these birds & plants seen here are South American. Tfs.

    Hi Malgo

    A superb trio of images depicting boats. Good sharpness and it's very unusual to sees cows on the beach, let alone taking shelter in the shade of a beached boat. Probably abandoned. Craig will love it!

    Hallo Elaine,

    About the strangest food preparation I saw in Vietnam was ladies cracking open snail shells in Hoi An, & putting the shells in empty icecream buckets, but placing the snail meat straight onto the pavement! Anyway a good portrait of this old woman with excellent colour and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello Bev,

    I often consider converting to b& on hazy overcast days when there isn't much colour, or the strong backlight has faded the colours. Good sharpness, tonal range and tight framing here on the locomotive wheels. Tfs!

    Hi Craig

    The black parts of the ice are intriguing. I wonder why? Perhaps volcanic ash. I often have the same problem choosing what to upload. The couple at right add scale. Tfs!
