    Hello Jorge,

    The cactus at left balances the composition and adds a good focal point. Excellent sharpness and the grazing white cattle in the bg add depth and layering. Tfs!

    Hello Krzysztof,

    Looks more like repeated vandalism than time that has done the real damage here. A sad scene indeed. Good sharpness, lighting and perspective. Tfs!

    Hi Bev

    For a moment I thought you had been to Hawaii! The statue superficially resembles a tiki wood carving, and the luxuriant vegetation looks almost tropical.

    Good framing and sharpness. Tfs!

    The unlacquered statues of Hawaii are also impressive. Wish I had known about this park when I was there.

    I like the minimalist colour, diffused light and stark graphism. The fog adds mood, mystery and atmosphere. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    A good downward pov from the new lighthouse overlooking the old tower and the beach. Marvellous colour & good sharpness and saturation. The stormwater drains add symmetry. Tfs!

    Hi Gert,

    Good sharpness and linear perspective with the dual sides of the canal guiding the eye towards the bg bridge and coconut palm further behind it. Nice warm cold colour contrasts and the empty canoe adds an additional focal point. Superb reflections too. Tfs!

    Hi Ian,

    I like the 'zed' shaped pattern of the gorge. Good sharpness and excellent colour, sharpness and nice warm cold colour contrasts between the yellow green fg foliage and the blue haze in the bg, caused by evaporating eucalyptus oil. Tfs!

    This part of the underground city looks more inhabitable. The Byzantines built several large underground cities in Cappadocia. Quite an amazing sight to see. Good sharpness, lighting and framing making use of the multiple arches. Tfs!

    Hallo Lars,

    A nice way to honour such a visionary artist. But I fear the view from the top of the Arch is temporarily obstructed. The people add scale. Tfs!

    Pleased to see the note appear. Happens to me too. I usually copy before sending just in case. The red and white English flag at right is an usual sight in these parts. Good downward pov on the monastery. Tfs!
