    Hello Craig,

    I've been down than pedestrian mall but like many I wasn't aware you could climb the arch. Terrific view from up there with the repetition of the diamonds and squares in the pavement more noticeable from up there. Tfs!

    Hi Bev

    A good upward pov with the giant punch like puppet striking the bell tower in 5 minutes time! (Going by the clock below). Punch and Judy are not so well known outside the UK, and even less so in the US. Sounds like an impulsive & impetuous character! Tfs!

    Hello Ian,

    Good photoshop work to make this image look even better. The red brick tower contrasts well with the blue sky. The trees add a partial frame at right. Tfs!

    Salut Christiane,

    It's not quite the Sahara, but on a hot summer's day you would hardly notice the difference. I hope the climb is worth it for the beach or carpark and guesthouse on the other side. Or a cold drink from a shop. Tfs!

    Superb sharpness with good diminishing linear perspective afforded by the flagstone path. Excellent repetition of the chimneys. The lady in red adds a strong focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    I have read estimates of around 25 million people died during the first Bubonic Plague that swept right across Europe in the 14th century, approximately 1/3 to 60% of the population. It seems there were further outbreaks in the 17th century albeit not as deadly or widespread. People must have started to realise by then the importance of hygiene and waste disposal. A sad commentary on this heroic, self sacrificing village. Tfs!

    Hi Carlo

    A strange and unusual sculpture of the truncated horse. It looks as though someone took a chainsaw to it then lost interest. The 2 Ionian columns enhance the classical Greco Roman atmosphere. Tfs!

    Hello Paul,

    The luxuriant tropical vegetation is in evidence all around here, and the strangling fig in the workshop reminds me of the one at Yungaburra on the Atherton Tableland in north Queensland. Good sharpness and framing. Nicuragua's answer to Angkor Wat! Tfs!

    The small moth or butterfly with its beating, motion blurred wings lifts this shot out of the ordinary and above being just a shot of flowers. Good sharpness and shallow dof. Tfs!

    Hi Gert

    A superb shot of the outdoor fruit and vegetable market with the man at right appearing to have just made a purchase. These cheaper markets seem to be slowly disappearing as large supermarket chains capture the market. Good sharpness and the diagonal axis of the tables adds dynamism. Tfs!

    Hi Rob,

    Excellent use of a shallow dof with good midground sharpness. An interesting trio of patterns and shapes. I've never seen white basalt before. Tfs. In Australia it is usually black or dark grey.

    I like the red brick arch in the bg. The couple look stressed by the heat and have found a relatively cool & shady resting spot. Good sharpness and tight framing. Tfs!

    Hello Mesut

    I can just see Galata Tower on the horizon. I have not been to that part of Istanbul where this rooftop cafe is located. It offers a tremendous view. A nice contrast between the mother in her traditional hijab and the 2 young daughters in Western clothing. Tfs.
