    Hello Jorge

    Luckily these alabaster sculptures survived the overzealous interpretations of the commandment "thou shalt not place false idols before me". It clearly shows the Crucifixion of Christ. So I fail to see how it could be construed as anti religious. It would be an entirely different matter if it was anyone else. TFs!

    Hi Ryszard

    The superb elevated vantage point offers an expansive view of the town. Good sharpness & the parking lot with its many repetitive shrubs adds a focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Paul,

    An unusual dual shot showing both upwards and downwards views of the same scene. Good sharpness and the arch provides a nice focal point framing the downstairs view. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    The red floats and yellow hose pipes contrast well against the blue sky and water to give a pleasing warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Nice repetition of the French tricolor flags fluttering in the breeze. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The blue window shutters almost match the color of the sky. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe

    I like the meandering, reversed 's' shape of the road which leads the eye deep into the image. Good sharpness and the chocolate brown red dwelling roofs and door contrast well with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hi Lars,

    At -86 m below sea level the effect of heatwaves would be amplified. I found a similar situation in the Dead Sea Valley in Jordan and Israel (- 430 m.) Almost nobody lives there. Amman (+776 m) and Jerusalem (754 m) are around 3,000-4,000 feet higher and much, much cooler. +34c instead of +44c in July 2016. THis area looks like a moonscape. TFs!

    Hi Pavle,

    A spectacular sunset with a stray meteorite of fire appearing to hit the roof of the house in the cerntre. But I know its only a trick of the lens refracting the light. Tfs!

    Hello Mesut,

    This bull is more well travelled than some Turkish & Australian people! I wonder if there is any connection to the famous bull statues on Wall Street in New York City? The dog seems bored by it all! TFs!

    Hello Jorge,

    Guys are generally pretty hopeless when it comes to arranging themselves for a group photo shoot. I've found that women can organise themselves into rows determined by height and have a neat inverse pyramid shape in seconds. Without having to be asked or prompted! Robin Hood hardly even features here. I would have snuck back in between tour groups. Tfs!

    Hello Daniel

    Lol! It sounds like something a tight fisted Politician would do today to save money (using the old statue and pasting a new inscription over the top of the old one)! Good sharpness and a nice contrast of the old and the relatively new. Tfs!

    The blue sea and sky contrast well with the orange and red tones of the fg architecture. I like the elevated vantage point and spectacular view. Good sharpness and saturation too. Tfs!
