    Hello Jorge,

    A superb wide angled view of the old Monastery with good sharpness and soft lighting. Nice repetition of the Ionic columns in the entrance. Tfs!

    Hello Daniel,

    Well I am glad that I made the effort to see Sibui when I was in Romania. It was well worth it. Good sharpness and nice curves of the road and overhead arch. Tfs!

    When I lived in Korea I was always sad to see the trees without any leaves at all at the end of Autumn. A good elevated pov with a nice reflection in the large puddle. Excellent sharpness too. Tfs!

    Hello Bev,

    I might need a language interpreter if I ever go to Glasgow. The Glaswegian accent is VERY thick. I don't have a problem with Scots friends and acquaintances from Edinburgh. Very much easier to understand. Same with Irish and all of the UK accents from England. I guess because Aussies have been exposed to so many British tv sitcoms they no longer find a Yorkshire or Mancurian accent daunting. The Armadillo building looks like a compressed version of the Sydney Opera House. The diffused soft light was a nice compensation for the overcast weather. Tfs!

    Hello Ian,

    Looks cold and inhospitable enough to be well above the tree line. Good sharpness and amazing that it can be 47c at Badgerys Creek in western Sydney but still cold enough to support last winters' snow here. Good sharpness and framing.

    Hi Luciano

    Sometimes you don't have to go very far to find beauty and interest. It can be found right in your own back yard, as depicted here with the swan. Nice reflections and the fog adds mood. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    Hi Ian

    Living in Qld I have never seen a wild snow gum, except perhaps at Girraween where they look pretty much like all the other eucalypts struggling to find a toehold in the rocky granite terrain. Good sharpness and texture. Tfs!

    Hi Gert

    Interesting to see what I missed. Looks like a fissure in Rinjani volcano, which dominates the entire island, was emitting gas at left. I saw similar at Tangkuban Prahu outside Bandung in Java. The impoverished neighborhood hardly seems inviting after Bali. Sengigi on the west coast has now been gentrified and is preferred by tourists seeking a more relaxed vibe than Kuta / Legian on Bali. Plus the beaches are better than Bali if you make your way to the south coast. We hired a 4 wheel drive in Mataram and visited almost deserted crescents of white sand lined with coconut palms. A perfect scan with excellent sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello Costantino,

    The superb impressionist reflections and the c shaped curve of the esplanade save this image, despite the slight lack of sharpness and noise. The people provide scale to the bg monastery and bell tower. Tfs!
