    Hi John
    The colours are fantastic! Beautiful place, perfect for autumnal photography. The road makes for a great compositional tool.
    Best wishes and have a nice week

    Nice trio of photos. Kids will be kids. I must say though I have a photo sitting on a cannon, aged 25... :-D

    Hi Gyorgy
    Ah, the famous "pepesha", it was well known in Poland too.
    It's great that these events are commemorated. The WS made me really really sad.

    PS. Thanks for your last critique - yes, I must admit I often thought of the main character from Gert's book on my way to Afghanistan. Thankfully it turned out nothing like that. :-)

    Hi Ian
    It's lovely to see this oldie, to hell with the "perfect quality", one could argue this image has an impressionist feel. I think it's really nice and it's fascinating to see the kids and their clothes and their bags (I had one like this in primary school, which was only a little bit later than when this image was taken).
    I wish I had something like this from every country I have visited but, sadly, I only have holiday snaps with me posing from a couple of trips...

    Great use of differential focusing and I really like the matching colours. The WS photos show the hardship behind your walk but it's still nicer to be out than in all day.

    Great interior photograph and also a very graphic and eye-catching photo, even in thumbnail format. The light must have been quite challenging but you managed it so well.

    Hi Vincent
    Beautifully taken photo, the pointed rocks in the foreground make for a great background for the snow-capped mountains in the distance.
    Quite a story, cold, hungry and no toilet! I think the ones rescued before the nightfall really appreciated their luck. :-)

    Hi Miguel
    It's difficult to believe this is NOT Germany. :-)
    I like the way you filled the foreground with the sausages and divided the frame in such a way that the top part includes the parasol/red roof.
    You really captured the atmosphere of the festival here with the crowds visible in the background. How different it must be looking these days...

    Hi Ronny
    Very beautiful and compelling portrait, perfect timing and I also like the expression on the lady's face. Great use of depth of field to enhance the main subject.
    I read your note with great interest too. It must be wonderful to know so intimately the remote corners of that interesting country.

    Beautiful simplicity here, there is no better canvas for this kind of architectural detail than overcast sky. At first, looking at the thumbnail, I thought they were boats. It's fascinating to discover these are elements of a roof.

    Hi Abmdsudi
    Interesting slice of daily life, something I've learned about Cambodia today, even though I've never been there (but I do want to go one day!). It's a portrait with a lot of drama you present here, it must be a hard life. Shame about the traffic, it must be both destructive for this man's business and dangerous for him while he is working.

    Hi Craig
    It's indeed amazing you see few photos from this side. Maybe it's the "Instagram effect" - people just want to repeat the kind of shots they've seen taken by others. You and Malgo are of course not the type... ;-)
    Love the wide-angle lens effect and the saturated colours.
    All the shots are truly beautiful. The only criticism - the amazing interior shot in WS should have been another main upload in its own right.

    Fascinating landscape, these gently rounded hills look almost unreal and the colours and patterns adds to that impression. Nicely composed with the enough foreground interest to give 3D impression.
    I bet Luang Prabang is not the touristy at the moment. Worrying for those locals who invested money and effort in building businesses reliant on tourism.
    I hope I manage to go there one day...
    Have a nice week.

    At least it's not a cheap imitation of some western cartoon you can see a lot of in e.g. Japan. As you say, this art is a result of the local tradition and values and, to be honest, I find it quite fascinating. Lots of colour too, with convenient blue sky as background.
    As you say, it's difficult to appreciate the scale but the staircase does help.

    Hi Paul
    Wow, what a way to finish your reportage for Thailand! Beautiful nighttime image, the colour and and the light on the facade are amazingly beautiful. The silhouettes of the tree and the bridge create intricate shapes and additional points of interest. The images in WS are also lovely but this one is an absolute stunner and deservedly the main upload.

    Wonderful upload full of joy and memories of the late summer! It brought a smile to my face on this rainy day. The photo is a beautiful, skilfully taken closeup and both the butterfly and the flowers have been captured at their full glory. Lovely colours.
