Sorry my friends. Because it was not "picked" by the editor - and I always believe that this is the way the editor speaks and tells you "not enough, you must try harder" - so I deleted the previous version after made some minor adjustments, but I keep here your comments on that version. I hope this doesn't bother you.
Friendly from Carlos

Very striking image, Carlos. #5292005

Thank you Emily, Joan and Ronald.
I guess this image is not "family friendly" or has not enough colours to please the editor.
Friendly Carlos #5299202

I withdraw what I said before. But at that moment there were images of Jan4th already picked and this one no. It means the editor picks the images of a given day not at the same time ? #5301419
