    Witaj Krzysztof,

    AN interesting collection of old machinery and even a rusty anvil! Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The cord is not distracting which is nice as sometimes the fence to keep the public out is way over done and obtrusive. Tfs!

    Hi Bev

    My first thought was that it had something to do with the town's past mining history. The tower has pedestrian access and might offer nice views on a sunny day. Good sharpness and diffused light. Tfs!

    Hello John,

    Not much you could do about the black garbage bin but better that than litter all over the street! The red roofs contrast well with the blue sky. Good sharpness and the well rugged up people provide scale. Tfs!

    Hello Mariusz,

    This looks more like Trondheim in Norway than the English cities and towns I am used to seeing. Mind you, I have only been to London for 2 days and Brighton for an hour then rushed off to Amsterdam. Wonderful reflections and good sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello Krzysztof,

    The tan coffee color of this vintage car is unusual. A good angled pov showing front and side. Excellent sharpness and nice reflections in the shiny metal body. Tfs!

    The grazing horse in the lush green meadow at right animates the scene. Good sharpness and I am glad that at least some forest is still surviving. Tfs!

    Hello Ryszard,

    A very ornate ceiling in the Renaissance Baroque or is it the Rococo style? The colourful fresco on the ceiling steals the show. A fine upward pov with good sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    There were no chairs or partitions in St Peters Square when I visited but it was 40c & I did not feel like queuing for 2 hours in the sun for a 10 minute look just before closing time, when I eventually got to the head of the queue. So I went to the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain instead. Tfs!

    Ciao Miguel,

    It looks like floodwaters sometimes come roaring down out of the mountains on occasion judging by the silt deposits. Good elevated pov with excellent sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello Miguel,

    The boys in the fg look so serious but the boy in the bg smiling and enjoying the fountain and pool steals the show. The yellow and blue T shirts add a nice warm cold colour contrast. Tfs!

    Hi Ian,

    Surprise surprise, Murdoch has shares in many international oil and coal companies. And thus 'owns' Morrison, lock, stock and barrel. I saw one photo where the metal alloy on the wheels of a burnt out car had melted and run like treacle. Good shot of the old railway wagon. Be thankful you are not in Sydney or Canberra, which have endured many days of pollution worse than Beijing. They now have to worry about lung cancer as all previous fires were short term. This season has lasted 3-4 months. And classed as intermediate term. They are predicting long term pollution in future if nothing is done. Hopefully this useless and corrupt LNP government will be out of office by then. Tfs!

    I like the graphism of starkly contrasting tones of white and almost black in the bg. Good sharpness and excellent use of a shallow dof. Tfs!

    Hi Gert

    I am a little envious that you at least got to visit Mardin. I considered it but left Hasankeyf for Tat Van via Batman instead. I had a similar experience in Cairo with someone latching on to me despite telling him several times that I did not want or need a guide. I just wanted to wander around & take photos. Like you I was probably too polite to tell him to get lost. I never really did get to like Cairo, & if it wasn't for the pyramids and archaeology museum I wouldn't recommend anyone ever visit. The noisy traffic and chaos of 20 million people were all too much for me. Anyway a nice scene reminiscent of Matera in Italy. Tfs!

    Ciao Silvio,

    This brings back nice memories for me of arriving in Pisa at blue hour. The impressive fg building at left doesn't get nearly as much attention as it deserves. The people add scale. Tfs!

    Hello Lucas,

    I love the the turquoise colour of the sea. Good sharpness and a marvellous blue sky backdrop with nice cloud formations. The people seem to have abandoned the back of the beach and are all just on the edge of the water. Tfs!
