    Hello Kari,

    I came in by Viking boat from Stockholm and also left the same way to Tallinn in Estonia. So I am not familiar with the Helsinki airport. Good aerial view with superb sharpness. I didn't find Helsinki 'hellish' at all. In fact I enjoyed my time there! I had already been to 'hell' in Norway, lol. (Hellesylt). Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    I like the intensity of the reflected blue sky in the water. Nice repetition of the mooed boats with good density levels and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Murat

    As the main focus here is the architecture of the Harem, rather than the miniscule cat, the image SHOULD be safe from overzealous moderators. In case you weren't aware, after Mehmet posted dozens of close up shots of stray cats in Istanbul, the rules & TOS were changed to "no wild or pet cats". The golden tones of the bg arches attracted my attention. Tfs!

    Hi Elaine,

    A superb dual portrait of the mother and her baby. Or possibly the grandmother? Yes, your note confirms her as the grandmother. The weathered lines in the old woman's face are well captured here. Tfs!

    Hi Daniel

    This would be a nice island to be dropped off at for a couple of hours to just swim and enjoy the solitude. The tiny yachts and bg clouds on the horizon add focal points. Tfs!

    Hi Ian

    Stay safe. The Delta variant is leaking out all over the place from Sydney. Excellent sharpness and the diagonal axis of the street adds good dynamism. The lady in red and her pram provide a strong focal point. Tfs!

    Ciao Luciano

    Almost without exception the interiors of most Italian Cathedrals are spectacular, and here is no different. In the rare cases where the inside wasn't impressive, the exterior was. Well managed low light levels, with wonderful frescoes on the walls and ceiling. Tfs!

    Good linear perspective with the diagonal angle providing dynamism. Well framed and composed with superb lighting and colour. The zig zag dovetail in the wood beam at left adds interest. Tfs!

    A good daily life scene of the bicycle repair man hard at work. Excellent sharpness and a good diffused light. The diagonal pavement adds dynamism. Tfs!

    I guessed around 1965/66. At least I got the right decade! Good sharpness and the raised hood reveals the motor. Tfs!

    Hello Robert,

    A good capture of this warm and intimate moment. It shows so little but shows so much if that makes sense. The body language says it all. We don't have to see their faces. Tfs!

    A nice symmetrical composition with a fine upwards pov. Perfect sharpness and nice warm cold colour contrasts. I wonder if the interior of this Monastery was as impressive as the façade? Tfs!

    Hello Costantino,

    The guy on the boat with his leg in the air looks like he's practicing Zorba's dance! Reasonable sharpness and well framed and composed. The fg looks like a romantic spot to dine for couples with its flowers and candle. Tfs!

    Ciao Abmdsudi

    Always saddens me to see Nepal before the 2015 earthquake. I probably passed this guardian lion in Durbar square several times. Good catch of the wistful looking lady tooo. Tfs!
