So we are now in the voting phase, maybe you may also try and guess.

For those who saw miracles happening, in recognising, here are a few tips. You can search an image back on internet nowadays. for instance the site http://www.tineye.com just upload the image and tineye will try to find it back on the net. The weak point of this site is, is that its cache is limited but the strong point is that it can recognise shapes, so it may offer other pictures of the same landmark when it's roughly in the same position.

Image google has the same features, but strong and weak reversed. Googles cache is virtually unlimited but it cannot find shapes back. Just go to google search, hit 'images' and then click the little camera icon in the entry bar. Then copy the url of the picture and you get this:

So if the image has been uploaded elsewhere, in Panoramio for instance or a personal website, then google will almost certainly find it, and the landmark is a give away.

So next time if you enter, make sure google image finder cannot find the image elsewhere.
