    Hello Rob,
    The main photo gives such great prominence to the three arches that we almost forget to look at the buildings containing the new town hall. The three bows across the water are quite fascinating and a very original feature. #2 could have been a perfect postcard (but does anyone still buy them?) Maybe not surprising I am fond of #3 which not only shows a nice lady in red, but also a remarkable combination of old and new architecture, all quite stylish and elegant. If I had been able to take these photos I would probably have been tempted to use this as main upload.
    Best wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Jorge,
    At least you didn't get lost when you were with the police. ;-)
    At first glance I thought these people with their arms stretched out were doing the common traditional gymnastics, but of course nowadays taking selfies is probably more common. I don't remember this golden lotus from my visit in 1986, so it must have been placed here much later, after Macau had been handed back to China. It makes a good focal-point in front of the palms.

    Hello David,
    This kind of sight is quite common, but no - I couldn't do this. For a Westerner it's an amusing sight, and this man also adds a lot of color with his trousers, helmet and plastic bag.

    Hello Chris,
    This gives us some idea of the architecture. From this elevated position you managed to include people on the ground and the seemingly recently restored roofs, as well as a glimpse into the surroundings. The light is equally well handled in the shady and sunny parts.

    Hello Miguel,
    This is another place I sadly failed to visit on my short stay in Amritsar. What happened here was one of the darkest moments of British colonialism in India. Now it has been turned into a green and peaceful park. The young couple are well placed in the foreground, where they bring colours and life and hope for the future.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    It's an amusing view of this spectacular rock and the man climbing it. You have to be careful so you don't slip when you are up there. It's a very nice composition with fine light and colours.

    Hej Lars,
    Detta är ju inte direkt den vanliga graffitimålningen. Den är ju ovanligt fin, så jag hoppas att den aldrig blir förstörd av klotter. Jag undrar om det är en ren tillfällighet att parkeringsautomaten i hörnet är placerad intill informationen om "Private Parking". Hur som helst så är ju kopplingen mellan dem perfekt, och det var lika perfekt att du fick med en person vid automaten. Det hörnet höjer ju värdet på hela bilden. Den är för övrigt väldigt snyggt beskuren.
    Hälsningar,
    Gert

    Hello Nicolas,
    The two large yellow trees are perfectly placed in the foreground, like the commanders of an army of small green trees. The snow covering all of them, and the fog in the background, give the photo a pleasantly soft tone. Another superbly composed photo.

    Hello Ian,
    It's a well composed photo and a very attractive view. The pink plants in the foreground and the funny cloud seemingly stuck to the upper part of the mountain are the most memorable features.

    The entrance gate is quite impressive, but what makes this a good photo is the well handled light in the courtyard and the people seen through the gate.

    Hello Luciano,
    I'm a bit of a museum fan but I rarely take photos unless I manage to combine the objects with people watching them. I prefer real people to dolls, but in this case the dolls are better than just the objects. The four photos give us some idea of certain aspects of traditional Tunisian life. It is almost like looking into the work-places.

    Hello Piotr,
    It's a very well composed close view of the impressive fountain with strong contrasts between the gilded statues and the dark rock. The spray of water going in all directions have a nice effect and create an attractive haze. Sharpness and light management are very good.

    Hi Gerrit
    This reminds me of Mekong river sunset in Vientiane. A shot with wonderful warm colours and great attention to detail; the silhouetted figs are strong point followed by the dipping f1reball and clinched by the reflections as everything is pointing the way! It's a great time and place to wind up the day..
    Excellent capture

    A fresh looking landscape by the riverside taken from an impressive pov with lovely tonal range, some vivid colours and plenty of features to make the eye busy. Bit of glow on water sheen is an added value to the whole capture, Superb shot, Congrats

    Hello Francesco,
    From this position you make the river look incredibly wide and impressive. Such a lot of water and so relatively small buildings. Maybe the level of the water is not as threatening as it may seem, but the impression created by the position of your camera is quite overwhelming. The impact of the photo is enhanced by the light and contrasts.

    Hello Robert,
    My favourite churches in Porto, and I am probably not the only one who likes this fantastic side wall and the photo opportunities offered here, from any side and any distance. I am quite certain you agree. This is a very nice photo showing a wide view, and a lot of human presence too, and with exceptionally good light and contrasts.

    Hello György,
    Another cute photo, this time with a rather touching personal story to go with it. This grandfather looks young and healthy enough to survive the boy's 7th birthday and hopefully a lot more. But who knows? It's a bit like a special photo, with very nice colours too.

    Hi BennyV
    Great shooting point, apart from human element, the wooden footpath is vital as a strong anchor point taking you to the brightly lit olde house and its surrounding features. Deep colours and contrast bathed in warm light work a treat and nicely merging together. Excellent capture.

    Hi Nicolas
    A close up shot of nature at work with artistic abstract effect.The patch of white snow gives a sense of reference point and wonderful dusting snow too. A shot makes me feel optimistic just looking at it with minimal colours. The whole scene is 'alive' with those little jewels. Congrats
