Hello Benny, This wall showcases some really striking geometries, and your POV really maximises the effect, thanks to the reflection of the opposing building perfectly captured on the glass. The two panels might not be part of what the architect had in mind when he designed this gate, but they contribute to the richness of geometries of the whole composition. TFS! A.

Hello Noel, A very appropriate POV for this statue of Apollo, with the sun right above the statue as to suggest how the God is the master of the star. The blue sky and the clouds make a perfect and well balanced background. I sometimes try similar shots myself, but invariably the subject comes out too dark. But your execution is flawless. TFS! A.

Hello Jean, A very unusual subject, captured perfectly. I like how the jellyfish fills the whole picture, not giving the viewer any help to understand the exact size of the animal. The sun creates some beautiful reflections that adds to the whole otherworldly feeling. Just one suggestion: maybe next time put an external flash somewhere on the right to soften the shadow a bit. Just an idea to experiment further, as the picture is stunning as it is. Thanks for sharing!

Hello Aleksander, An immaculate execution for this landscape: great composition, well balanced colors, sharp details, perfect DOF. The contrast between the green of the grass, the yellow of the leaves, the blue of the water and the gray of the cloudy sky really makes this picture a piece of art. TFS! Alberto

Hello Eugene, I remember traveling through Turkey and being astonished by the number of cats populating the various ruins, but I never managed to get such a great shot of the two things combined. The fiery look on the cat's face perfectly matches the majesty of these timeless ruins. Also, the slightly blurred background forces the viewer to focus on the furry friend, but without missing the whole setting. TFS Alberto
