This is an excellent composition with very fine colours. The good sharpness and contrasts have created a 3D effect to the cathedral. As always I enjoy seeing the people in the street with the colours and life they contribute.

A very enjoyable street-photo. The man is nicely placed off-centre with his newspaper. The well lit column contrasts perfectly with the black background. It's an uncomplicated but very nicely balanced composition with attractive shadows.

A well composed photo of the very beautiful castle with the pond in front. The clouds are quite expressive and form a fine background. The photo has a very good clarity and excellent sharpness. It's technically very well done.

The figure in the foreground makes me think of Buddha, but what would he be doing in Arizona? The WS convinces me he is an ordinary American, but the composition still draws my imagination to the Tibetan plains (although with far too many, and too high, buildings). It's a nice composition but with a clear lack of red details ;.).

I think most northerners would still appreciate a day like this, but maybe the hotels and "domatia" are closed, so the people of Leros are now preparing for a winter on their own. The thought of another summer left behind us gives the photo a somewhat melancholy atmosphere - or maybe it's just my imagination. It's in any case a lovely view of the boats and the fairly thick clouds, that still don't prevent a very beautiful light shining through them.
Street Art # 6 – The cat by tatadalou (5971)

This is a fascinationg painting made even more impressive by your close-up and tight framing. But is this really B&W. It has a red tone and the blood vessels in the cat's eyes are definitely red. Or did you just add a sepia tone to a B&W version?
Autumn impressions from Luxembourg II by claudeD (31373)

Hello Jean Claude,
Another beautiful view from rural Luxembourg. The well placed swan, with its long "track" behind it, is no doubt the star of this photo, but it gets tough competition from the fine light falling on the distant hillside with its superb lines made by the vines. The reflections are wonderful and I also like the small grey hut by the shore. The colours and clarity of this photo are very attractive,
