    Hello Vincent,

    An amazingly tropical look and feel to this shot that looks more like Thailand than Victoria. The red Japanese style wooden bridge makes a great focal point. Good sharpness and colour. Tfs!

    I like the colourful façades at left and the different window styles. The lady in blue animates the scene and adds scale. Tfs!

    Hi Murat

    Good to catch the gardeners at work and I like the downward pov. Excellent sharpness and the rectangular fountain makes a superb focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Ian

    This is a lot sharper in the full size image. The fg gum trees either side frame the scene well. Nice reflections and an informative note. Tfs!

    Hej Gert

    Wow! From the thumbnail it looked like a Mesoamerican pyramid. It was not until I opened the thumbnail that it immediately became clear this was shot in India. Good framing using the arched doorway portal. Tfs!

    Hi Krzysztof

    A delightful Japanese styled red bridge with strong simple lines and nice water cold colour contrasts with the surrounding blue water and sky. Reminds me of the Nikko bridge in Japan. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    These Vikings look disorientated, perhaps because of the fog and the lack of any city landmarks! Good mood and atmosphere. Tfs!

    Ciao Silvio,

    Good sharpness with a fine elevated pov and the belltower of the old church makes a good focal point. The highway at left and bg mountains add depth and layering. Tfs!

    Hi Costantino,

    I am missing a little bit of sharpness, but the reflections are lovely and remind me of a watercolour painting. The light is also very good. Tfs!

    Hi Ian

    Wentworth detention centre? Did they keep the steam presser? Jokes aside, I like the wide angled panoramic format. Good sharpness and the watchtower adds a focal point. Tfs!

    Hello John,

    Good timing to catch a passing boat, and reassuring to see that the water is not way past the Plimsoll line, as I noticed in the Grand Canal in China, where the waterline was only inches away from flooding into the long boats loaded with coal. Tfs!

    Hello Mariusz,

    Unfortunately my train ran express from Malmo to Stockholm but I might have caught a quick glimpse of the Lund cathedral as the train sped past. Better to see it here than some distant spires from the train station. Good tonal range and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Jorge,

    All large cities are dynamic places and constantly changing. If the facades of old buildings can be retained or small sections of old neighbourhoods preserved, that's better than bulldozing the entire district and putting up soul-less new buildings. Just occasionally new buildings are an improvement. It's a fine balancing act. Tfs!
