Very nice coastal village with its small charming beach and its castle and wind-mills up above. Looks like a very peasant place. Well composed photo with an atmosphere. Good with the foreground element at left. Informative on the place and many things to look at. Great! A possible improvement if detail addict: the last wind-mill by the frame could be removed I think; not pleasantly placed and the other mills would balance better the castle if without.
Best regards, Claude
Old Warehouses - Trondheim by annjackman (16861)

I visited Trondheim several times and often thought these iconic warehouses were not so easy to photograph. Often poor light, commercial signs you want to avoid, an unpleasant element in the background, etc. Here you sure found an excellent point of view and it happened to be in beautiful weather at the right time of the day. Very pleasant view combining the colourful warehouse with the towers of the cathedral, the other outstanding landmark. Beautiful light and reflections.
Have a nice week-end, Claude.
Spotting Planes by pastadog (13111)

Original subject, some ethnographic content, and a sunset on the sea completing the scene! Well chosen low point of view, well composed with the man facing the coming plane in the opposite corner, and people well distributed. A very good and enjoyable photo! A detail you could improve I think: the slightly tilted horizon line.
Have a very nice week-end, Claude.
Perito Moreno Glacier by walterantonio (37)

A nice photo including both details in the glacier and a view on the surrounding landscape. People having not seen glaciers "live" may think the bluish ice is not realistic, but the others know it is! The only desirable improvement I can think of: would have been a bit better with more details in the very dark areas.
Le Village by Gigidusud (12223)

Très joli village et encore ici une image super nette. Absolument charmant, et suggère qu'il doit être fort agréable d'y vivre. La lumière me semble meilleure dans les 3/4 droit de la photo et se dégrade un peu à gauche, davantage visible dans le ciel, en s'approchant du soleil. Comme il y quand même beaucoup d'info dans la meilleure partie, ça laisse penser qu'un certain sous-échantillonnage serait possible. Mais bon, on parle pour parler là.

Une image super nette avec une belle lumière, de jolies couleurs, et une agréable composition avec de la profondeur. Et puis, en plus des qualités esthétiques, un sujet pas banal du tout. J'ai appris quelque chose ici. Excellent post.
La Alhambra by willperrett (5174)

Splendid image of the Alhambra at dusk. Sharp, many details to enjoy. Beautiful with the white mountain in the background, and good inclusion of the tree to add depth. A tiny detail: I'm perhaps a disgusting cheater but I would have masked the two spotlights at the foot of the wall. (So now you know that I can sometimes slightly enhance the reality!) Like Craig writes, I do watch postcards for sale to get an idea of what's around and the points of view, but sorry for the sellers, I never buy.
Good week-end, Claude
