    Hallo Paul,

    Although I did manage to get to Janakpur and Chitwan, I do not think I got to see Lumbini, so tfs. There is a Lumpini Park in Bangkok, capital of a staunchly Buddhist country. Good reflections, colour and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello Krzysztof,

    Good depth and layering which gives a 3d effect. Excellent sharpness and framing. I like the peeling paint of the interior window frames. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge,

    A good capture of the ornate interior of this world famous museum. The boar looks more like a harmless giant porcupine. A real fully tusked wild pig is a terrifying sight indeed. Good sharpness and diffused light. Tfs!

    Hi Lars

    I like the warm cold colour contrast between the blue sky and water and the sunlit facades of the buildings with a warm yellow tint. Nice fg reflections and impressive sharpness. Tfs!

    Bonjour, Pierre,

    Nice repetition of the bg umbrellas with good overall sharpness. An excellent scene from Disneyland at Orlando in Florida. The tram cars look like a novel way of getting around the park. Tfs!

    Hi Gert

    Strange to see the avenue of mango trees without even a single blade of green grass at ground level. Mango trees grow well here in south east Queensland. Good sharpness and some nice daily life scenes such as the chicken, cyclist and pot of water? atop someone's head. Tfs!
