A superb blue hour shot of the colourful fountains with excellent sharpness and splendid sharpness. Nice motion blur of the water jets. The playing children animate the scene. Nice warm vs cold colour contrasts between the red and blue. Tfs!

Even from the thumbnail I thought I could make out the outline of an abstract horse. Well composed with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The abstract sculpture is worth a second look too for other hiding shapes! I like the high contrast and shadows reinforcing the graphic element. Tfs!

The red spired wooden church in the bg makes a fine focal point & centre of interest. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. The yellow hued hillside at left contrasts well against the blue sky. A superb high pov. Tfs!

I like the wide angled, panoramic format. Good sharpness, colour, saturation and density levels. The indented patterns in the fg wall nicely frame the bg. The basilica on the horizon makes a fine focal point. The red roof at left contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs!

Like Australia, Britain largely has no major or frequent earthquakes of note, so there was a time 50 million years ago or more, when this wasnt always the case, as evidenced in the geological tell tale signs of the folded rocks. Wonderful warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sea and sky and the yellow red hued rocks in the steep cliff. Tfs!

Superb warm versus cold colour contrasts between the straw yellow fg and the blue sky, with good sharpness and density levels. Nice skylight reflections in the fg stream with the copse of trees in the mid distance at left adding depth to the composition. Good aerial perspective of changing tones in the bg foothills of the Himalayas. Tfs!
Saint-Etienne church by Miguel82 (20532)

The clear blue sky makes a superb backdrop to the pale honey yellow coloured church. Good sharpness and I like the lighting with the fg parked cars in shadow and the facade of the church brightly illuminated. Good saturation & the trees either side balance the composition and nicely frame the shot. Tfs!

A superb profiled portrait of this old woman with a wonderful warm vs cold colour contrast between the red and gold head covering and the blue sky. Good use of a shallow dof yet with perfect sharpness on her eyes and face. The crows feet indentations around her eye add character. Tfs!
