The red French icebreaker vessel contrasts well against the blue sky. I guess this is part of the Antarctic research ensemble. The angled pov on the ship adds both dynamism and diminishing linear perspective. The blue stripe within the ship itself enlivens the warm cold colour coontrast. Interesting to see what looks like the Chile flag along with the French tricolor and the Australian flag with the Union Jack in the top left corner. Tfs!

Looks like this big granite boulder has been carved into centuries or even thousands of years ago in prehistoric times. The man at right adds scale. The man made construction at far right in the distance is roughly the same color hue as the rock. The blue sky makes a great backdrop. Tfs!

A fantastic daily life scene from the local fruit market with good sharpness and superb shadow detail. I like the woman shopper at left carefully examining the fruit for flaws and imperfections. The green bananas in the bg add interest. Are they used in local cooking? The sunlit section in the =mid distances enlivens the tonal range. Tfs!

The aquamarine and turquoise colours in the water are lovely. Good sharpness and a marvellous blue sky backdrop. I like the hilltop village in red stone. Nice repetition of the boats along the foreshore. Excellent saturation. the V shaped tongue of land at left features prominently and adds a graphic element agaisnt the lighter sky. Tfs!

The performers red shirt contrasts well against the bg blue sky to give a pleasing warm vs cold colour contrast. A superb upward pov with impeccable sharpness. Good to have the greenery of the trees at the bottom and not obscuring the man on the highwire. Excellent graphic qualities of the dark wires and poles against the lighter sky. Tfs!

The graceful fg white arch frmes the bg room nicely. Good sharpness and a clean and tidy housekeeper! Nice repetition of the home library shelf books. Good color and the small details like the clock on the wall, the ceiling fan & the suspended lightbulbs add interest. Tfs!

It was good of Deniz to show you around. The mosque on the horizon at far right adds place and context. Good sharpness and the bright cheerful colours of the boat contrast starkly against the dull grey sky and its reflection in the water. The trash rack float adds interest. I saw a nifty scooping machine in the Bosporus that sucks up all the floating debris in the water and spits out the jellyfish! Tfs!

A stunning view of the Rio are coastline. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. One way to cut the haze is to reduce brightness, increase constrast, and boost the saturation. The fg vegetation adds depth as well as framing the scene nicely. The sheltered cove and beach at right looks lovely. Stay cool in the southern summer! Tfs!

I like the silhouetted pine trees in the mid distance. Their dark forms add a wonderful graphic element against the lighter slopes of the bg mountains. good sharpness and the warm orange glow in the sky top right contrasts well against the predominant grey blue tones to give a nice warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

I like the muted, pastel colours and interesting rustic building partly submerged in the ground with the stone walls and grass covered roof showing. The dried yellow vegetation in the bottom left corner contrasts well against the grey blue sky. I might have cropped a little of the sky to get a 1/3 ratio. Tfs!
