    Bonjour Serge

    I may not speak French, but I do know "Jaune"
    Spectacular colour exposure in this photo, but not just the yellow colour of the trees, but the entire scene of exposed sky, foreground and surroundings.
    Excellently captured and pleasantly composed.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Jorge

    The legendary stepped rice paddies of the far east. To photograph something more stereotypical and classical Asian than this would be difficult.
    Excellent overview with attention put on the stepped paddies while still leaving just a little of the surroundings for scale.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hello Beverley

    Well spotted and well captured.
    Your choice of composition makes the curves and lines into much more than just that, pulling the viewer in to the photo and into the lovely gradient of shade and highlight.

    Hello Andre

    Charming is the proper description here, as it is how I perceive your photo.
    Simple elegant city photo.
    A limited amount of points of interest, but what they lack in numbers they make up for with attention. The composition puts the immediate attention to the scooter and the tree and the background details just blend together with that.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hello Krzysztof

    Excellent use of of the short lens and wide view. Sometimes a god wide angle is the only think suitable to give the full impression of a location.
    Just enough light is present, the windows do most of that job without overexposing their immediate surroundings.
    Well done.

    This is what I would call the stare of a million words.
    Well composed, with the right amount of shadows to keep the mystery in this persons eyes.

    I can only imagine what this gentleman might be thinking about, but overall you really have managed to capture that image of someone truly in deep thought.

    ...umm... what?
    I guess most actions have a purpose... but I really can't claim I see it here... except for the humor of your note :P
    It looks interesting, I did click it. It brings a visual aspect that at least from afar looks interesting.

    Hi Mark

    Excellently exposed and composed photo.
    An aesthetic and calming location, I especially find it interesting that the scene appears so devoid of people... even though they are there.
    Perfect exposure of the light of the sky in comparison to the surrounding terrain.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Excellent victory photo. I say victory as reaching such a spectacular location like this is a victory in itself.

    Hello Kasia

    Technically not so much a travel photo, but still very much so.
    It might not show off the location, but if well performed these kind of photos can turn out very good.
    ...and in this case it did...
    Excellent sharpness on the area of interest, the area within the mirror.
    But the more I study your photo I realize there is a lot to learn from it. The subtle hints of a landscape, the features and of course the lovely colours of the setting(?) sun.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Jorge

    You had me laughing at the Disneyland comment :P

    Although it might be a reconstruction and set up to entertain visitors, this is still genuine presentation of China.
    Well cropped and well framed photo. Soft subtle lighting works well with the slightly faded colour tones of the covered bridge.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi there

    Although smoke can sometimes be seen as both a benefit and a turnoff in a photo, I feel it mixes well with the clouds and mist in this scene.
    What really amazes me here is the soft calming colours of the sunset and how well it blends with the distance haze that is present in the photo.
    Beautiful scene.

    Bonjour Pierre

    Very well framed ad overall composed photo.
    The framing of the ruins using the foreground arch is an excellent feature that really draws me into the photo.
    Overexposure may be an issue, but here the sky is so bright that it actually puts attention back on the ruins.

    Hello Jean

    Interesting choice of photo location. Personally I tend to avoid photos with too many people, but here you have managed to capture an everyday scene in an everyday location, but using the unique visual features of the roof and wall to your benefit.
    Of the photos on screen, this photo caught my attention quickly, primarily due the roof features.
    But as I study it more it seems to bring out a story that I would like to know more about.
    Well spotted!

    Hello Benny

    Excellent composition for this photo. Actually the second photo in this style I comment the last few minutes, but I must say this one "pops" in a different way.
    Excellent sharpness in this view, both on the picture and the spectator.
    Lighting is perfect for this B&W photo.
    Although I tend to dislike too extreme halo effects, the slight one you have managed for the spectator here is just right. It makes her stand out from the background very well.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hello Rob

    Well spotted photo opportunity.
    Excellently framed and composed, it really brings out a message, especially the tilted head while studying the art.
    The grain of the photo works well with the style of the artwork. I do however find the photo slightly dark. I would probably boost the brightness a few points.

    Beautiful wildlife scene.
    As you say, great composition with the zebra centered on the road... I just secretly wish the area directly in front of it was a little less crowded.
