    Ola Jorge,

    The decking of the bridge carrying all the traffic is quite high above the water. Let's hope the pylon supports have flashing red lights during thick fog to prevent ships crashing into them. That's already happened in a couple of places in the world. Good sharpness and tonal range. Tfs!

    Hello Bev,

    I once tried reading an old English transcript written by a monk in the 10th century, quite a few decades before the Norman invasion of 1066. It was like trying to read Dutch. Not that surprising really when Dutch and old English are both Germanic languages. The Angles and Saxons came from north Germany quite close to Holland. So I can understand quite a few words of Dutch from my time in Indonesia. Some are obvious, like administrasi, irrigasi, with the French 'ion' tacked on the end later. Good catch of the barge in the canal. It's named Padua, after the town in Italy I see. Tfs!

    Ciao Jorge

    You were lucky to miss the typhoon altogether. The weather was gloomy but you still captured a colourful photo. I thought Macau was a lot like Portugal. Good depth and layering with the hilltop fortress. Tfs!

    Hello Lucas,

    Hmm it seems that what started out being public property ended up as private property that families can no longer visit? Good sharpness and the deserted lake and lack of crowds would seem to hint only the uber rich come here now. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre,

    Looks like some type of falcon or hawk. Maybe even an eagle, but I've no idea what species. Good use of differential focus with good sharpness on the bird. Tfs!

    Hello Zbigniew

    Although I never lived in Busan, I did visit often. They have a sand sculpture festival at Haeundae Beach in June. I often had weather like this in October November where I lived further north. Good mood with the fog and the bridge looks new. Tfs!

    Hallo John,

    The adjacent bike path compliments the parallel walking track strewn with Autumn leaves. Good sharpness, colour and saturation with the path adding nice perspective. Tfs!

    What have we here? A giant German helmet from WWII? The ladder is a nice touch here and you were lucky there was a curious man wanting to see what was up there. Tfs!

    Hi Piotr,

    This looks similar to the lavish interior of Peles Castle in Romania. http://es.trekearth.com/viewphotos.php?l=7&p=1514474

    Good sharpness and well famed and composed. The warm light emanating from the arches enhances the shot. Tfs!

    Ciao Abmdsudi,

    I have seen many a sad looking mouth throughout South East Asia and the culprit is generally betel nut chewing. I might have brightened the image a little. Good head and shoulders portrait with superb use of selective focus and good highlights in both eyes. Tfs!

    Winter is not far off. Wonderful red tones of the bg trees interspersed with the odd splash of gold here and there. Good sharpness and the ominous blue black rain cloud sets up a superb warm cold colour contrast. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicolas

    On a hot day of 31c in eastern Australia, this is nice to look at. 42c in Adelaide! It looks deceptively like an aerial shot at first glance. Good downward pov with superb sharpness and framing giving an almost abstract quality. Tfs!

    A rustic collection of kitchen implements and the blackened fireplace attests to its use on some winter nights. A superb quartet with excellent sharpness and lots to look at. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    I like what remains of the tile pattern. I wonder if it was at the bottom of a bathing pool at one time? Good sharpness and clver use of the arch to frame more of the bg ruins. Tfs!

    Hello Rob,

    When I was a little kid 'eskimo' was a perfectly acceptable word along with aboriginal. Now we must call them Inuit and indigenous Australians. I wonder when the pc crowd will twig that it's not the word per say, it's the intent and tone that they are used with. Anyway, some fine art here depicting the Inuit and their lifestyle. The wigwam structure resembles a hat on the girls head. Tfs!

    Hi Miguel,

    The cigar shaped memorial to the 120 victims thrown down the well provides a poignant focal point. Some historians consider this event in 1919 as the beginning of the end of British rule in India. I had to look it up.

    I like the oblique line of the horizon starting in the bottom left & finishing top right. The bleached sunlit towers provide good focal points. Tfs!
