    Hello Benny

    Looks a bit like Meteora in Greece. A superb elevated vantage point with good sharpness and nice warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and orange red village. Tfs!

    Hello Ian

    I've never been to Springbrook in Qld where it's cold enough tulips grow, or to have once been grown, but have seen them in Turkey and Bulgaria. I had to laugh at this: "Dutch train guard Konraad had little experience with tulips beyond mistaking them for onions in the past and serving them with white sauce." Tfs.

    Hello Mariusz,

    I lie the elevated pov. Good sharpness and the tourists scattered around provide scale and animate the scene. The pyramid shaped dune is a decided bonus and adds a good focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Ian

    I did see flowering cherry trees in South Korea planted many decades ago by the colonial Japanese and also in Wuxi, China. They look just as good here. Good sharpness and lighting. The path adds lead in lines and perspective. Tfs!

    This brings back good memories. I liked the Oslo Opera House the first time I saw it. Apparently locals hated it, but it has grown on them. Good sharpness and nice reflections. Tfs!

    Hello Mariusz,

    I like the motion blurred light trails of red & white. I just hope you were really really careful, as it can be very hard for motorists to see pedestrians at night. A tremendous blue hour scene with nice warm cold colour contrasts. Tfs!
