Nice picture overall, but what really strikes me is that green/red/yellow trees on the right side with so tiny leafs, it seems an impressionist paint almost. I understand your choice of putting "somebody" in the frame (on the bridge) however, given he/she is so small, I'm wondering if it wasn't better a totally static picture. Good composition with thirds both horizontally and vertically.

Miseriaccia, son giÓ spuntati i papaveri? Mi hai battuto sul tempo! Molto ben bilancaita come colori ed esposizione, da manuale come tutti i colori siano pieni senza nessuna sovraesposizione nonostante la forte variazione di luce tra ombre e chiari. Dallalone attorno alle nuvole mi par di intuire che hai applicato una maschera di contrasto. Bel lavoro. Ottima nitidezza, anche.

I think I know where you took this shot, is that near Boulevard Lasalle? Not very original picture, but well executed. I like the dramatic saturation and the strong backlight. Also teh compositin is nice, with the cyclist on one side, balanced by the tree on the other. Maybe a slight tilt of the river shore.

Interesting daily life shot. I've heard that in Finland even bus drivers have some Kankunnen/Makinen style while at work :-) Nice exposure that lets feel the winter morning. A bit disturbing the light in the lower right corner. Pleasant motion blur of the cars.

Gorgeous composition, with the sails and trees on the background. Curious colour of the sky, almost perfectly gray. I don't understand your choice on exposure and contrast: I would have brightened it and added contrast, so to get the colours more vivid.
