    I live in that strange and mysterious land you refer to. The UK has never had ID cards, apart from during the war years, and people from all over the world have always needed passports to enter the UK, just as UK citizens always required to enter EU countries. In that respect nothing has changed, so your claim that this has only been the case since the UK took control back from Brussels is total nonsense.
    You ask what is the UK's intention - basically to have total control of what and who enters these shores and to be able to trade with whoever we wish without being shackled by the snails pace actions of the EU. Had we been in the EU when Covid hit we would have had to wait many months for vaccine rollout. That's just one example of the benefits. Are there negatives, of course there are but people voted and the decision was made.

    It's many years since I visited Warwick Castle - way back before it was turned into a theme park. I like the viewpoint too. It's very close to where I took my own photo across the water to get that reflection.

    I really like the converging lines and the way they draw the eye in.

    My mind does the same tricks. When I saw the photo in the Gallery, and before noticing the title, I also saw a Buddha!

    I love the simplicity of the image. The three bands of differing colour and the yacht moving into the frame works very nicely.

    My initial thought to myself was would it have been better to take the image from the other side. On consideration I don't think it would as there would be a real risk of highlight/shadow or both, being lost due to the harsh light.
    In a perfect world the horse's head might have been higher, but I've never tried to give posing instructions to a horse :-)

    Great image, packed with detail. The information about the difference between the glacier in 1999, and your image taken 13 years later is interesting but actually nothing new.
    The museum in Banff has a series of images taken in the late 19th and early 20th century showing how much the glaciers in the area had retreated over that period too.
    Please note - I'm not trying to deny the current issues, just adding the information that its been going on for over 100 years.

    I particularly like the way the sunburst light rays contrasts with the damage and graffiti. When I initially looked at the picture I spotted the bottle in the foreground and thought it should be removed. After seeing the damage and graffiti everywhere else I think it actually adds to the sense of dereliction.

    Amazing structures. The image isn't very sharp, which is understandable given the location, but still certainly clear enough to see all the detail.

    I really like the composition, colours and reflections. It's often said that you shouldn't split an image in the centre of the frame but I really do think it works well here. Rules are only for guidance anyway. :-)

    Nice observational shot. Strong composition, and I like that you can see the faces of the people inside too.

    Just for information - Curious is when you are the one being nosey. Nosey is other people being curious. :-)

    I like the composition, but I'm not sure it really works for me as a black and white image. There is very little tonal range so even the straight path/road doesn't really draw the eye very strongly. I'd love to see a colour version for comparison.

    Great observational shot. They certainly don't look to be in the mood for Carnevale! The close cropping works really well.

    I love the sunset and the framing with the branches draws the eye to the main subject. Still just enough light to be able to see a little of the detail. I read another critique suggesting the light in the bottom left is distracting. Whilst there is some truth in that, without it there would be no real sense of scale, so on balance I think it's good to include it.

    Incredible mix of colours. The only 'problem' is there is no sense of scale. Approximately how big an area is in this photo?
    Informative note too.

    I like the tight composition and the visible spray. It's always difficult to get a sense of scale with waterfall photo's but the track and the size (or lack of size) of the trees at the top of the fall certainly help.

    I posted a couple of similar images from our visit, but was shocked to realise we were there 17 years ago. Time flies!

    Interesting mix of the traditional and modern, which possibly indicates the mental and emotional conflict of the people. They value their traditions but are being dragged into the 'modern world' whether they like it or not.
    I like the impact of the main model being front and centre and the contrast with the motorbike in the background.

    As he was willing to model for you I would have got him into a position where the weapon wasn't casting a shadow on his face. Other than that I do like the lighting on the left side of the body. I would also possibly have stood further back in order to ge the full outfit in shot.

    For the record, it wasn't a photograph of a bird which was removed, although it clearly suits Jorge's purposes not to correct that misconception. The photo was a close up of a bowl of fruit. That type of image is, and always has been, the sort of thing that is routinely removed on the basis of being a common object better suited to TrekLens.
