    Hello Ike,

    Looks like a banyan tree. For a moment I thought you'd been to Angkor Wat! Good natural repetition of patterns and shapes with excellent sharpness and texture. Tfs!

    Another good shot of this interior mill with good sharpness, framing and lighting. I like the bright light shining through the cracks in the wall at right. Tfs!

    Hello Pavle

    Good textural details in the exposed and ploughed red earth. Excellent sharpness and a nice warm cold colour contrast with the blue grey sky. This is a nice minimalist shot. Tfs!

    Ciao Krzysztof,

    It seems that some of the wooden structures have at some stage been sprayed with a greenish chemical to prevent insects and water damage. I forget the name of the chemical. But it smells terrible if the wood is ever burned. Lets hope that never happens here. It's rare to see machinery made from wood rather than metal. Tfs!

    Czesc Mariusz!

    Old Market Square looks lovely. I tried to photograph that blackened cathedral from closer up, but it looks better from this angle and with a nice blue sky backdrop. Tfs!

    Hi Lars

    The red brick buildings and the yellow fašade of the building at right contrast superbly with the blue sky to give a nice warm cold colour contrast. Good sharpness and framing too. Tfs!

    Hi Piotr,

    A superb elevated pov from this roadside lookout. I had forgotten all about the many bunkers around the country. The lighthouse provides a good intermediate focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Vincent,

    Congratulations to all Victorians who made the effort to comply with the heavy handed restrictions imposed on everyone down there. The end result was worth it. NOW the economy can take precedence once more. Hope you had a couple of donuts to celebrate. A lovely Spring scene from the gardens. That high-rise bg building with the many box rectangles / squares in the design is eye-catching. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    Luckily the girls heads are in shadow and the eye is naturally drawn to the top in sunlight. In a city like Venice, it is important to try and include the water for context, which you have done. Tfs!

    Hello Gert

    It's probably somewhere near Sengigi Beach. Kuta Beach Lombok is white sandy beach with even a little surf. I never made it to the east or north coasts. Definitely not Mataram which is inland a bit away from the beach. The black volcanic sand from Rinjani volcano is evident here. It also looks like it is not Bangsal where tourists catch boats to the Gili Islands (Ayer, Trawangan & Meno). The coconut palms add a tropical mood. Tfs!

    Hi Paul,

    If the boat to Huay Xai was as comfortable as this one, I might have considered a 2 day boat trip instead of flying. The boat I got to Pak Ou Caves just had bare wooden seats. And being cramped in a speedboat for 8 hours didn't sound like a viable alternative. Good sharpness and perspective with nice warm cold colour contrasts. Tfs!
