I like the slightly oof extreme fg sharpening as the eye progresses into the image. Good perspective and lead in lines with the rows of vineyards. Excellent repetition of patterns and shapes. The bg blue sky contrasts well against the yellow green vegetation. Tfs.

The fg yellow flowers contrast well against the bg blue sky. Good sharpness and the diagonal axis of the road gives dynamism. Perspective has been well managed placing the verticals centrally. I like the angled pov showing 2 facades and the superb shadow detail. Tfs.

The pale yellow red sand of the bg dune contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the fg boat counterbalances the distant boat at right up close to the dune. The muddy reddish brown color of the river accentuates the warm cold color contrast. Tfs.

Ah yes, I see it. Good diffused light and maximum shadow detail as a compensatory bonus for the overcast skies. It's possible to add a fake blue sky in photoshop, but you need to be careful of reflections. Grey reflections of a blue sky give the game away! Tfs.
Raised bridge by Graal (99124)

A splendid high and elevated pov with vibrant colour and nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue skylight reflected in the water and the red roof. There is a similar bridge at Middle Harbour in Sydney. Tfs.

Punchy light contrasts and the red roof at left contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and perspective has been well managed. The yellow streak at the bottom of the building enhances the effect. The cp has done its job admirably. Tfs.
China in Cheshire by Royaldevon (31791)

Missed this one. The serene Chinese garden has been well captured. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The characteristic bright red painted buildings are typically Chinese. The design appears to be a fusion of several styles. The weirdly shaped limestone rocks buttressing many Chinese gardens are missing here. Tfs.
On the Lower East Side - Tenements by worldcitizen (7301)

Nice repetition of the firescapes, which add an aesthetic as well as a practical element. Good sharpness, color and saturation. The yellow vehicle and the red brick buildings contrast superbly against the blue sky to give a wonderful warm cold color contrast. Tfs.

Wonderful repetition of patterns shapes designs and colors in this superb wall mural with the passing woman animating the scene beautifully. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. Effective tight framing and superb shadow detail. Tfs.

After travelling all day from Florence I arrived in Pisa right on blue hour and took advantage of it. The 4 very distinctive buildings, or perhaps 3, and their yellow red illumination, contrast well against the blue sky. Reasonably good sharpness in the fg getting better towards the back. Tfs.
