    The yellow leaves and the red tiled roof contrast well with the blue sky to give a superb warm cold colour contrast. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Hello Costantino,

    You had fantastic weather for your flight. The meandering river far below adds lead in lines and perspective. Good colour and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello John,

    I like the small reflection of tree branches in the puddle at left. Well composed with the road coming in from the bottom left corner, with excellent colour, sharpness and lighting. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo

    I do not think there would be a toilet inside a Turkish style steam bath. That is a basin for clean water which is scooped and ladled over a lathered body to wash away the suds. They would sit on the raised blocks of stone. Even in Sinop prison Hamam in Turkey, there was no toilet inside. Prisoners had to go to the latrine outside and were only allowed to wash inside the hamam. Good shot btw. This is the part of Skopje Gert liked. I liked all of it. Tfs!

    Hi Paul,

    An interesting historic photo of the Islamic building from Ottoman times. An observant traveller would notice that even today, there is still a strong undercurrent of mistrust and dislike of anyone, usually Albanians or from Kosovo, who is still a practicing Muslim. From a Serbian Pov, this area and adjoining Kosovo was the historic heartland of ancient Serbia before the Ottomans invaded. This animosity ignited in the 1990's disintegration FYR, which included North Macedonia. Over time I hope this mistrust and the hostilities subside. It is a sad state of affairs when Serbian Churches and Muslim Mosques have to be barricaded with razor wire to prevent arson attacks by the opposing side. Tfs!

    Hello Luis,

    The skulls add symmetry to this superb street art and regardless of whether you like such art or not, it is infinitely preferable to the mindless tagging with zero artistic ability that abounds too often everywhere. I saw some terrific street art in Sevillia. Wishing I had have stopped there for a day or 2 instead of going straight on to Cordoba and Granada. So much to see in Spain and so little time to see it all. Tfs!

    Hallo Lars

    This looks similar to Tyrell or south Bavaria, or even Upper Austria near lake Wolfgang, where parts of the Sound of Music were filmed. Nice to see that westernmost Austria also has wonderful alpine scenery. Tfs!

    Hi Mariusz

    Here is some obvious geologic evidence that at one time in the past, possibly several, huge ash clouds have been ejected from the volcano. It is much hotter to walk on than white sand as it absorbs the heat rather than reflecting most of it. I recall on Santorini having to use the hessian matting to get to the waters edge or take flip flops and throw them back up the beach away from the waves once I was in the water. Good colour and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Ian

    Sadly this is the section of Hue I remember the most. No doubt the occasional typhoon has worsened the severe napalm fire damage over the years. The lush tropical landscape is slowly reverting to forest. Tfs!

    The way oil, gas and coal prices are skyrocketing, Brazil made the right decision to use solar power to cut long term costs and have reliable energy. Reasonable sharpness and a good tonal range. Tfs!

    Missed this one. The flowering fruit trees (or perhaps they are almond trees) make a showy display. Good sharpness and well framed and composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs!

    A good symmetrical framing of the 2 busts on pedestals, with superb sharpness and lighting. The bg posters in the window look interesting. The steely blue grey colour stands out well against the red brick walls in the bg. Tfs!
