    Hi Malgo,

    The solitary Arabian man animates the scene and adds place and context. Good sharpness and the concrete jungle at left is an unexpected sight in the desert. Tfs!

    I like the wide angled panoramic format, and the lady adds a focal point and scale. Good sharpness and framing with the dried grass adding textures. Tfs!

    Salut Nicole,

    Superb graphism with wonderful silhouettes and punchy light contrasts. The duck nicely breaks the distorted vertical lines reflected in the water. Tfs!

    Salut Nicole,

    What have we here? Looks like a fish trap and the seagulls are taking advantage of the roof and rails as roosting spots. Tfs!

    Hi Murat

    These cars look surprisingly old. Not an expert but I'd guess late 50's / early 60's? Good sharpness and the red brick clocktower at right adds a focal point. Tfs!

    Ciao Krzysztof,

    I like the agate like or onyx like patterns in the marble column at left. Good sharpness and the alcove gives the statue a nice 3D effect. Tfs!

    Ciao Gert

    On hot days in Florence I would buy gelato very couple hundred metres or so, trying rocky road, coconut, strawberry, chocolate, rum n raisin etc all in one day of walking around in 40c heat. There were plenty of places selling cold drinks too. A good daily life scene from Stockholm evoking memories of late Spring & Summer. Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    I caught a double decker bus to Stanley Market which passed through Repulse Bay. It looks like an attractive place to live, certainly better than Kowloon or Aberdeen. Good sharpness and the colourful red fg flowers add a splash of warm colours. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge,

    Take care with the mosquitoes. Dengue and Yellow Fever are no fun at all. And Coronavirus as well! Anyway a colourful Christmas scene of the old woman who lived in a shoe and some other fairy tales too, I can see. Children would love it. Good colour and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello Bev,

    I very much like the effect of the tobacco filter with the blue tinge at the top. Good sharpness and the lower part of the image resembles the skies over Sydney and Canberra after the recent bushfires. An exceptionally well composed image with good symmetry and saturation. Tfs!

    As well as French pastries, Belgian chocolate and Italian pizza is easy to find in Bangkok, and good Thai food is a delight if not too spicy. Good sharpness and diffused interiorr lighting. Tfs!
