I will have to explore more of Slovakia when I go back in September. So far I have only spent time in Bratislava. Good sharpness and the colorful fg red flowers add depth and a pleasant warm cold color contrast with the blue sky. The double onion-domed tower at right makes an obvious focal point and is well placed on the 1/3 vertical axis. Tfs.

I will have to look at a map to see how close I was to seeing this town. I spent some time in Bavaria last year. Good sharpness with attractive warm colors and interesting old sundial at the bottom contrasting well with the clock at the top. The vertical frame works well. Tfs.

The dark green segment top right doesn't really bother me but the image looks stronger when it's cropped. Fantastic array of color with good use of a shallow dof and a nice catch of the woman photographer at work. She adds scale and context. Tfs.

The weather and lighting were kind to you here. Good density levels with solid blacks and clean whites that give excellent tonal contrasts and superb saturation. The woman in the hot pink sets up an immediate warm cold color contrast against the blue sky. Tfs.

A splendid warm vs cold color comtrast between the ripening yellow-red grain in the fg and the bg blue sky with fantastic sharpness, saturation and color. The few green ears in the fg add depth and layering. The hillside village makes a fine focal point. Tfs.

Nice reflections in the fg water and the boat is well positioned at the top of the frame. Good color, sharpness and saturation. I like the repetition of the tyres at the top and their dark tones add a nice graphic element. Tfs.

A very pretty scene of the cloud shrouded alps. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts with superb saturation. Fortunately all the volcanic activity is in Italy and to a lesser extent, Greece. The diagonal slopes add dynamism. Tfs.

A superb aerial shot of the US flag for Independence Day. Good sharpness and density levels. Excellent warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue. The parachutist animates the scene and provides scale. The blue sky makes a wonderful backdrop. Tfs.

I'm in Sarajevo at the moment and heading to Split in Croatia tomorrow evening. Thence to Mostar. I might even have to stop in Mostar first. Thanks for posting. The main reason I am going to Mostar. Nice reflections and good sharpness and framing.
