I like the repetition of the evenly spaced bare trees along the horizon line. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. The fg yellow flowers presumably daffodils, contrast well against the blue sky. The sidelight from the right is throwing good long shadows to the left. Tfs.

I like the repetition of the ploughed furrows in the potato field. They also add nice lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. Good sharpness and the red roofs of the bg farmhouses contrast superbly against the blue sky. Tfs.

A little bit scarey from memory, when I had to get a rickshaw through streets clogged with motorbikes and bicycles going in all directions to get to a major city bank in HCMC. The near square format works well here and the sharpness is superb. The zebra crossing is a superb addition adding space and a graphic element. Tfs.

If you can, try and get to Miyajima near Hiroshima. The most beautiful spot in Japan, imho. The graphism in this snowy Chubu province scene is superb, with good density levels giving clean whites and solid blacks. The blue sky with clouds makes a fine backdrop. snowing here today in the east Czech Republic. Good sharpness and the forested fg ridge also under snow adds interest. Tfs.

I've never been to Azerbaijan nor flown with their national carrier, but did consider going through Georgia to Baku when I lived in eastern Turkey. The blue sky makes a fine backdrop and the sharpness is astonishing considering the speed of these aircraft. A well managed, back-lit shot with good shadow detail. Tfs.

A good angled pov showing 2 facades of the same building with good sharpness and excellent warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and burgundy red exterior of the building. The blue grey panels at the bottom add compositional symmetry. Excellent linear perspective and the people at left add scale. Tfs!

A superb birds eye view from this elevated vantage point, with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. I had to look twice to determine this is a scale model. The curved roof of the central building adds interest. This miniature version is unusual. It was the plastic white horse at top left that gave the game away. I wasn't sure about the goat. Tfs.

Fantastic warm cold colour contrasts between the orange and blue, with punchy light contrasts abd excellent saturation and density levels. It looks a little like Pueblo Indian dwellings in Colorado or even the albeit less colorful buildings of the old Hittite capital of Hattusa in Turkey. The cafe at the right looks like a nice place for coffee or tea. Tfs.
Bolkow Castle by rychem (24654)

The hilltop castle makes a fine focal point and sharpness is excellent. Good color and saturation. I like the greenery of the surrounding forest. The red fg rooftops contrast well against the hazy blue mountains and the pale blue sky. Tfs.

I thought this might have been Florence. I took a few shots of the same bridge. Might upload them one day. The repetition of the arched windows in the facade of the building at right on the opposite bank is superb. The arches theme is repeated by the bridge at right. The warm yellow and orange colours contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs.
