It certainly looks active too with the denuded scarred summit bereft of trees. Good sharpness and the lush green rice paddies are wonderful in the fg. I like the high pov. The coconut trees enhance the tropical look and feel. Tfs!

Firstly I like the contrast and juxtaposing of the fg tram with the bg tram at right. Secondly I like the reflected blue sky light on the tram at left color contrasting with the bright yellow facade, and how this is mirrored in reverse on the tram at right with a blue facade and yellow trim. Tfs!

The red Cyrillic lettering contrasts superbly against the blue sky and water to give a wonderful warm vs cold color contrast. Good sharpness and the couple right off centre add scale and a welcome human element. The bg strip of green and houses add interest. Tfs!

Hello Jean Jacques,
Lovely pastel colors in the sky amplified in the perfectly symmetrical reflection with nice warm cold color contrasts between the orange and blue. Good sharpness and well composed minimalist shot with just the water, sky, and some boats, and the bg tower. Tfs!

This reminds me a little of the leaning tower of Pisa. Good upward pov with interesting design and good sharpness and nice repetition of patterns and shapes. Excellent shadow detail in the facade and the strong backlight has been well managed. Tfs!

A superb big sky shot from Montana. I like the snow capped peaks on the horizon which add depth. Good sharpness and nice graphism of the weathered fg fence at right. A nice tonal range in the grey and white clouds. The yellow green grass contrasts well against the blue sky too. Tfs!

The dark shadows on the fg stairs add a nice graphic element to enhance the effect of repetition. Good sharpness and nice warm versus cold colour contrasts between the yellow orange and reddish pink facades of the 3 main buildings and the bg blue sky. Tfs!

A superb blue hour shot from Chicago. Nice motion blur of the water plumes and superb reflections in the fountain, with splendid warm vs cold color contrasts between the hot pink & yellow illumination and the blue sky. The city skyline makes a great backdrop. Tfs!

The running boy in blue and red attire is eye-catching and animates the scene. Good sharpness and thye town square and al fresco dining areas add interest. A nice blue sky and good sharpness. The 2 bg towers enhance the scene. Tfs!

A superb decisive moment shot with the shadowed woman perfectly positioned against the sunlit background to give a marvellous graphic effect. Goof use of the old stone arch as a framing device for the bg orange pink tower, which colour contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Tfs!
