How absolutely wonderfully corny and what a sport. I love how we can see two photographers taking the shot and how the room looks as well, gives the viewer something to scan and enjoy. A lovely shot and Happy Holidays to you with best wishes for the New year...may it be full of adventure and great photography!

Waiting for the Train

Titles are part of the creative process and add to the meaning of the photo. Your title made me smile and I could almost hear those mosquitoes coming at me. I like how you saw this image with that point on the hill pointing to the heavens (where dwell those mosquitoes) and the heavens themselves are clear, azure blue, striking. You have a really nice visual balance with that bush at the left weighing nicely against that mount. The technical elements are crisp and clear with great detail showing. The colour palette natural and not overcooked at all. This is a breezy and delightful find of nature at its prettiest.

I really like the "in your face" presentation. Your colour saturation is good as is the focus, it feels natural and unpretentious. The bokeh is perfect showing detail in softness of the background, contrast, exposure spot on the money. The diagonal of the tree adds to a feeling of movement and that always excites us visually. Very nice.

O dear, I think this is tricky. Obviously we need to ignore the O since it is not allowed and look for the well hidden letters in the O like C, W, L, Q, X, V.
Well done.
