    Hello Bev,

    The rust red / orange body of the Staten Island Ferry contrasts superbly with the blue water, and the bg Statue of Liberty is unmissable as a focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Bev,

    A superb upward pov on this iconic NYC landmark. Ive only done the south west of the USA so NYC & Niagara Falls are still on my bucket list post Covid-19. Good sharpness and a nice blue sky backdrop. Tfs!

    Hi Lars

    Daylight saving started in Sydney & Melbourne last week and ends in March. But here in Brisbane there is no need for it as the sun still sets around 6 -> 6:30 pm. But 9:30 pm or later in Melbourne where it works well. Nice inclusion of the 2 clocks with excellent sharpness. Tfs!

    I can see the quaint little cottage wedged into the cliffs but not the rope bridge. Good colour and sharpness and the bg island at top left adds another focal point. Tfs!
