    Hi Krzysztof

    The 2 egg shaped plaques contrast strongly, with the one at right very faded by over 140 years of ultraviolet rays from the sun. The 'younger' one at left is easier to read. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    This Roman building would not look out of place in Bologna, which also has many red 'tomato sauce' coloured buildings, although this one is 2 toned. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Ciao Silvio

    A good profiled view of the Madonna and Child statues. Excellent sharpness with generally soft diffused light. The religious iconography top right enhances the scene. Tfs!

    You would never see a scene like this in Australia. The beach is considered to be public property. Not even umbrellas or deckchairs. Strictly byo. A colourful scene with good sharpness. Tfs!

    Another gorgeous scene from Slovenia that reminds me of Lake Bled. The tower at left provides a strong focal point and I like the elevated pov. Tfs!

    Hi Ian,

    Even if they just retain the stone faηade, and rebuilt the entire wooden part of the hotel from scratch, that's better than demolishing it and building something else that doesn't even blend into the surroundings. Pleased to see a trend in Brisbane to retain the ornate 19th century faηades in multistoried buildings now going up in the city. Decades ago under Joh Bjelke Petersen, the entire city block was demolished. The Rocks in Sydney is another urban area where real estate interests clashed with history buffs. Tfs!

    Hi Gert

    2 good daily life scenes in the workshop showing excellent street scenes. The elephant here has the shorter ears typical of Asian elephants I saw in Thailand. Excellent sharpness and framing. If I had the time and inclination I would have cloned out the bamboo pole at left. The elephant nicely frames the omnipresent beggars. Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    Hollyhocks aren't so common in Australia. Here they provide a welcome splash of hot pink that contrasts well with the blue sky. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Hi Ian

    The fg ducks animate the scene. Good sharpness and nice reflections in the water. My only recollection of the Murray is crossing from Albury to Wodonga by train. Nice to see it further downstream. Tfs!

    Missed this one. Another good entry in the vintage cars theme. Once again a good angled pov showing 2 faηades. The wide angled view works well here. Tfs!

    Hi Abmdsudi

    When I first went to Thailand in July I would wear a long sleeved shirt & hat, and use an umbrella to prevent sunburn, which can very quickly ruin a holiday. My mother even tried to wake up people who had fallen asleep on the beach and were badly burned. They didn't appreciate being woken up. Good daily life scene of the tourists who still think they are in northern Europe. They will learn the hard way that the sun in SEA is brutal. There's a reason the locals are dressed modestly. Tfs!

    Hi Ian,

    Usually when there is water in these outback lakes and rivers they are teeming with bird life. I wonder where they are? The clumps of reeds provide good repetition. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    Looks a little chilly. I think I would pass on swimming at this location at this time. An odd contrast between the bare dry ground in the fg and the profusion of ice in the water. Tfs!

    Of course, Belgium, Holland and France HAD to be liberated. The continuation of Nazi rule wasn't even an option. Kudos to the Canadians. They punched above their weight. Tfs!
