Hi, I'll have a speaking exam soon and I want to make sure that the phrase:

- There are some ideas that come to my mind on looking at this picture; however, I'll start from the most obvious one...

Is it correct? I would be grateful for your opinion.

Seems fine.
Yours is fine. You can also say
....; however, what stroke me most is .......

(not stroke).

The word 'stroke' is used when (an example) someone is stroking his/her hair right? What are the other ways to use the word 'stroke'?

Thanks. Emotion: smile
Stroke has lots of meanings; do you have a dictionary?

But yes, your example is a correct useage of one of the meanings.

I like this suggestion. :-) Can we say 'what strikes me most ... is that (the man, or whatever) is...'? Just to emphasize the moment of speaking?

Thanks for your suggestions.

Oh, and another question came to my mind. How can we say in English that sth is obvious? If I want to say 'It won't be anything new if I say that...', will it be correct? I feel that sometimes our translations from our mother tongues may seem unnatural for native-speakers.
