I like the soft diffusexd light and the old carriage in the corner which makes a fine focal point. Good sharpness and excellent warm reddish brown colour tones. The potplants add some welcome greenery. Tfs!

I like the rainbow at left and the superb colour, saturation and sharpness. Nicely composed into thirds of water, falls, and sky. The bg highrise contrasts well against the natural fg elements. The walkways at right add interest. Tfs!

The arch makes a fine focal point and allows the view a glimpse of the bg scene. The steps at right add fine lead in lines to the upper balcony and deep linear perspective. Excellent sharpness and natural looking pastel colours. The parked motor cycle makes a good secondary focal point. Tfs!

The meandefring stream provides good lead in lines and natural perspective. Superb warm vs cold colour contrasts between the orange red earthe and the reflected blue skylight in the water. The people add scale and context. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

Well framed and composed with plenty of breathing space right around the picturesque Swiss chalet. The lush green grass is immediately eyecatching. I like the sidelighting revealing the contours and textures of the landscape. Tfs!

The intricate Islamic art detail has been well captured here on account of the superb sharpness. I like the effective tight framing and the top and side lighting has brought out the fine textural details. Nice repetition of patterns and shapes. Excellent graphism and shadow detail. Tfs!

The red barge contrasts superbly against the blue grey sky. Good sharpness and a nice contrast between the old and the new with the older waterfront residential properties juxtaposed against the newer bg highrise buildings. The blue sky makes a wonderful backdrop. The riverfront building at far left seems to be very popular with the crowds. Tfs!
Pompei by stamatis (2561)

I visited Pompei last year and the site is massive, much bigger than I expected. I like the diffused light and dramatic clouds. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The square foundation structure in the centre makes a fine focal point. Good shadow detail and the horizon has been well positioned off centre. Tfs!

A spectacular sunset with perfect sharpness and fine graphic elements. Good color contrasts between the yellow orange and blue. The 7 sisters building is nicely framed between 2 sleek skyscrapers. Well composed with the horizon line well off centre. Excellent shadow detail and density levels. Tfs!
