    Hello Rob,
    I saw a "strange" thumbnail and thought "that must be Rob's". ;-) And of course it was.
    I'm not sure whether it's you or the designer who deserves most praise. The main photo is no doubt "yours". Not many members of TE would have got the idea to take a close-up of a cycle parking rack. Without any real sense of dimensions this may look like a part of an original silver necklace or another object only created for its beauty. In WS #1 you add fragments of red which we realize belong to a bike, and finally we get a regular street photo that reveals everything. The cycle racks still look above average elegant, but most of all they look functional.
    The photos are all above average, and the main upload is so smart that it goes to my favourites.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Bev,
    So you actually travelled by boat to the USA! I thought nobody did that any longer (except Greta Thunberg). At first glimpse the Staten Island ferry looked like a yellow submarine in a surface position. It almost steals the attention from the statue, which however makes a great background in the early morning light. The colours, statue and ferry gave you quite a spectacular photo.
    My limited experience from just one visit to the US is that American immigration officials are not the most charming persons on earth. ;-)
    Kind regards,

    Hello Miguel,
    This is a very good wall painting (or rather a painting mounted on a wall), and your photo is well exposed. The colours are strong and vivid. As far as I can see there are no references to "The Troubles", which slightly surprises me. Maybe some people are getting tired of politics after all these years.

    Fantastic painted decoration, especially those surrounding the doors. You also managed quite a good long view through the adjoining room and the exposure is very good.

    Hello Silvio,
    This is a well taken photo showing interesting items from inside the abbey. But I must say that this time I find both WS photos more appealing. The warm light shining on the building and the beautiful vaults of the crypt would have made more attractive main photos, in my humble opinion.

    Hello Philippe,
    This is a stunning view of the autumn coloured trees reflected in the perfectly calm water. I also like the increasingly darker blue tones of the surface coming closer to us. The orange "scar" of the broken branch corresponds well with the distant trees.

    Hello Ian,
    Very calm and probably very quiet. The low light and the mist rising from the water have created a very nice atmosphere which made the early visit worth the effort. It was a perfect exposure to capture the fine tones of the light and colours.

    Hello Paul,
    The scenery is beautiful in all these photos and especially in the main upload. And I don't mind at all seeing two persons in the foreground. In the WS I like the rusty tin roof surrounded by green bushes.

    Hello Piotr,
    The Monopolis seems to be a very interesting project, but this is an even more interesting photo. The reflections are like fantastic abstract paintings that I would have liked to hang on my wall (but they would probably be too expensive). A very well spotted and perfectly executed photo opportunity.

    Hello György,
    The medieval looking towers and walls, that aren't medieval, and the very dark sky make this look strangely artificial. It's like from a theatre, where the persons seen to the left are about to walk into the painted backdrop. Now that I'm getting used to your filtered skies I really prefer this to the more "natural " views of the WS. The small cloud also looks much better against the very dark sky.
    Best regards,

    Hello Costantino,
    This is a beautiful view and it is enhanced by the autumn colours in the foreground. The fog in the valley also creates a moody but attractive atmosphere. This is a very good photo, probably your best for a while. The colours are smooth and the photo is very well exposed.

    Hello Ronny,
    When I visited Burma in the early 70's only a one week visa was available and foreigners were only allowed to see a few places, so I never had a chance to see the areas inhabited by the ethnic minorities. This woman would have been young then, probably dressed the same way and smoking the same kind of pipe. It's a good portrait with fine light and perfect sharpness in the right parts.

    Hello Ike,
    It's a nice view of the yellow plane against the light blue sky. The WS is also well taken but in this photo the position of the plane, and of course the tree tops, tell us more clearly that it was going down for landing. It's well snapped with fine sharpness and as always neatly cropped.

    Hello Silvio,
    The wider views in the WS give us a full understanding of the amazing beauty of this medieval church. In this photo we are closely shown the great skill of the master who created this relief with the figures and surrounding ornaments. Good light and perfect sharpness has created a strong sense of 3D.

    Hello Bev,
    The title made me think you had managed a very smart photo of the statue reflected in the sea - really floating. You didn't, but it's still an impressive composition with a very good background of blue sky and fluffy clouds in the lower part. The wider view in the WS is also a good photo.

    Hello Miguel,
    I would have German sausages before Irish or British sausages any time. The round grill filled with sausages and buns is well placed in the center, and the red awning brightens the view. And it's always nice to see some human activity.

    Hello Vincent,
    The dark peaks closest to us are very strangely shaped. They look like they were designed by a Hollywood producer of fantasy movies. The white peaks in the distant provide a fascinating contrast. The story in the note is just as fascinating. I wouldn't have liked to experience that night. I like the clarity and sharpness of this photo.
