    Hi Alexandre,
    lovely composition with the hot air balloon so nicely placed against a wonderful blue sky and in between some exotic vegetation.
    Pleasant asymmetry, very attractive visually photo,

    Hi Murat,
    very well seen and captured.
    The boat has a particular shape and design but the logo of National Geographic of course attracts the attention.
    The sea with some ice swimming around looks amazing.
    Behind we can spot some waterfalls.
    Fantastic scenery.
    Very well done,

    Hi Chris,
    wow, this is such a beautiful capture.
    The colors are stunning. Looking at this I have a feeling it is real!
    The tomb of course is the main focal point but the people in the kayaks add so much color here.
    And there is much more to find behind like the fortress on top or a washing day scene near one of the houses.
    Beautiful reportage,

    Hi Paul,
    fantastic collection of the murals here.
    The colors are so well saturated, so bright.
    The portrait of the lady is really good, I suppose this is the portrait of the Angela?
    Nice to see also some green vegetation around, it adds an element of the real world.
    It seems you had the pleasure to have a TrekEarth meeting over there.
    It sounds so exciting! It is also great to have a local guide to show you less known spots like this.
    Fantastic reportage,

    Hi Costantino,
    this is a brilliant composition. Even though panorama it is very creatively taken vertically, and the effect is fantastic.
    It created a great feeling of depth leading the eye from the buildings in the foreground towards the centre.
    And there is a lovely street in there along which the buildings are well organized.
    You had a fantastic light conditions here, the clarity, sharpness and depth of the field is amazing!
    The clouds in the sky make a great pattern and in the end they are very good reason to take the scene vertically to give more space to the beautiful clouds.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Costantino,
    it is a very beautiful beach indeed!
    The water seems crystal clear and the pebbles so clean and perfectly sized.
    I like very much your wide angle effect here which well manages to include the whole width of the beach.
    The blue umbrellas add a lovely color and bring in the holiday feeling.
    Excellent quality work,

    Hola Luis,
    I wonder if people still buy oranges in a shop there, if they can simply reach to the tree along the main road?
    Beautiful decoration indeed. The orange balls go so well with the green leaves, they make a lovely repeated motif.
    You have well captured it against the elegant architecture behind.
    The brick design and style of window indicate an ancient building.
    Great reportage showing an interesting aspect of this less known city,

    Ciao Silvio,
    well spotted and presented this charming castello.
    Its location is amazing. Here the natural surrounding is quite apparent.
    The other buildings fit so well having a similar style.

    Missed this one. The castle ruins high atop this hill seem like an interesting place to visit. Good sharpness and excellent inclusion of the hiker in a red shirt, that contrasts well with the bg blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Abmdsudi,

    I saw tea plantations at Puncak Pass near Jakarta and of course in Malaysia at Cameron highlands but don't recall seeing any around Bukittingi so this is a new one on me. A misty and atmospheric view. Tfs!

    I like the converging linear perspective of the river bank and its reflection in a v formation. Wonderful reflections and nice Autumn colours of gold that contrast well with the blue skylight. Tfs!

    From memory, these stone statues of lions and other frightening beasts were often used to ward off evil spirits & bad luck as a kind of talisman. Good texture and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Murat

    There is a large rock with a hole in it off the Isle of Capri near Naples if you ever get to Italy (Faraglione di Mezzo). Moderate sized boats can get through it with no problem. Tfs.

    Hi Murat

    New Zealand is only a 3 hour flight from eastern Australia so I saw the Franz Joseph glacier there and Fox Glacier in the distance. It was expensive but I hired a ski plane that actually lands on the upper glacier over 7,000 feet above sea level. The scene here looks similar and the green tints prove that rock flour colors the streams flowing out of the meltwater. I have had people comment that the water was over saturated, but it was the natural color. Tfs!

    Hello Craig,

    Some border and security guards can be a pain in the neck, even within your own country. Sydney airport eg is very hostile compared to Brisbane and Melbourne. I am pleased to report I was very impressed with Vancouver international airport. Good repetition of the trees here with superb sharpness and perspective. Tfs!

    Hello Mariusz,

    The wooden balcony on the first floor makes a nice frame over the door. Good sharpness and excellent inclusion of the token palm tree. I hadn't realised the Canary Island were so far south & adjacent to southern Morocco & just off the African coast. I used to think they were near the Azores. Tfs!

    Ciao Kari,

    I remember seeing these statues before I went into the train station to try and get a ticket to St Petersburg. But I didn't get anywhere, either there or at the port, so I got a 'Viking' boat to Tallinn instead. Good sharpness and upward pov. Tfs!
