The lonely small bitumen road adds good lead in lines towards the bg stream and valley. A mountainous and picturesque part of SLvakia I have yet to visit along with Zakapone on the Polish side, equally attractive to me. Good sharpness with a pleasant diffused light. Tfs.

The fg trees add a welcome splash of greenery and the tall bg belltower looms gracefully over the old town. Good sharpness color and saturation. I like the warm cold color contrast between the red roofs and blue sky. Tfs.

The old red brick church contrasts splendidly against the blue sky to give a wonderful warm vs cold color contrast. Good sharpness and saturation. Perspective has been well managed. A fine upward pov also. Tfs.

The fg building dwarfs the yellow taxis parked in front, but the 2 tall skyscrapers in the bg take the dwarfing to new heights (pun intended). Good sharpness and a nice contrast between the old and the new. Tfs.

I at first thought the white flowers were sheep judging from the thumbnail. They add depth and their lighter tones contrast well against the darker tones of the green grass. The people add scale and animate the scene. Excellent sharpness throughout. The clear blue sky makes a great backdrop. Tfs.

The rocky tarn lake is a wonderful shade of turquoise. The patch of snow at right adds a graphic element against the darker tones. Good sharpness and a marvelous high elevated vantage point. Tfs.
Shadows, Reflections and Swans by Royaldevon (33033)

Good sharpness and the fg tree anchors the shot and makes a fine focal point before the ye catches the lovely reflections in the water and looking a little more closely, the white swans. The reflected blue skylight contrasts well against the yellow green vegetation. Tfs.

For sure Lisbon has some stunning artwork scattered throughout the city, even on the metro platforms underground, with each stations art distinct from others. Effective tight framing, good sharpness and vibrant color with excellent saturation. Tfs.

The pale yellow cream facades of the buildings contrast well against the blue sky to give a good warm vs cold color contrast. Good sharpness and the colorful flowers add a welcome splash of vivid colors. Tfs

A superb aerial shot with a nice, well-managed backlight that still has good exposure levels plus the wonderful shimmering light on the sea. Nice repetition of the islands. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Excellent pastel colors. Tfs.
