A nice minimalist shot with good textural details in the blue bg wall which contrasts so well against the bright yellow flowers of Spring. Excellent sharpness and the weathered lighter blue framed window enhances the scene. Tfs!

A lovely deserted beach for a long walk with time to contemplate and reflect. Good sharpness and superb warm vs cold color contrasts between the reddish yellow sand and the blue sea and sky. I like the v shaped gutters in the sand formed by the receding waves as the tide went out. Tfs!

An extraordinary garden indeed! Good colour, sharpness and saturation. The repetition of the statues is amazing and I am half expecting to see an old Macdonald statue somewhere amongst all the ducks, chickens swans, rabbits and lambs! Tfs!

A superb b&w image and a fine upward pov over the castle. Good sharpness and tonal range with excellent lighting contrasts and nice graphic elements. I like the angled pov and repetition of the 3 circular watchtowers. Have a nice week!

The wide angled, panoramic format works well here and I like the high pov. The dead trees and logs along the shoreline add interest and hint of some long distant disaster. The curving shoreline adds good lead in lines and the yacht makes a good focal point. The red roofs contrast well agaisnt the blue water at right. Tfs!

I spent a few days in Lisbon so this sight is familiar although it wasn't foggy when I was there. Simple minimalist composition here that works well with just the bridge and Christ statue. Good sharpness and minimalist colours also. Tfs!
Camp-fire on the beach by Graal (94156)

Bonjour, cher Aleksander,
Looks cold and no wonder they want a little warmth from the impromptu camp fire. The people add scale and their thick winter attire reinforces the impression of cold. Good sharpness and the icy fg textures are well shown. Tfs !
Beach and Port by fabianoleite (9244)

Good sharpness and a superb high pov overlooking this gloriously white and near deserted beach. Good warm cold color contrasts between the blue sea and the reddish yellow sand. The diagonal shoreline adds both dynamism and linear perspective tapering off towards the harbor top right. Tfs!
Sacro Cuore del Suffragio by Romano46 (15574)
ChrisJ (93428) 2014-04-16 14:21
The rust orange red facade of the building at left contrasts well against the blue sky ant the ornate decorations on the cathedral are amazing. Good sharpness & smart choice of a vertical frame to emphasise the height. Tfs!
On the Oder river by rychem (16412)

The red facade of the building at left and the burgundy trim of the riverboat at right contrast well against the grey blue sky and water. Good sharpness and well composed with plenty of breathing space at the top and sides. Tfs!
