I like the 2 fg ducks in the centre as they animate the shot. The lake and majestic bg mountains make a superb backdrop. The storm adds a dramatic mood to the shot. Amazing repetition of the dark green conifer trees on the forested bg slopes. I like the gradation in the water from yellow to green. Tfs!

I like the warm sepia toned tints and colors. Goo use of the old stone arch to frame the bg scene. The partially silhouetted man in the red shirt walking towards the bg adds a lot to the shot. The trio at far left just entering the frame nicely counterbalance the solitary man. Tfs!

A superb upward pov on the grandiose old building and perspective has been very well managed. The verticals have wisely been positioned in the centre allowing the tilted far right and far left lines to fall where they will. The tan color of the facade is unusual. Excellent sharpness and the modern highrise at left adds an old vs new theme. Tfs!

I like the angled pov on the square. The statue makes a fine focal point. The blue sky is a marvellous backdrop and sets up a wonderful warm vs cold colour contrast against the pale orange facade of the building top left. Good sharpness. I like the contrast between the shadowed area at right and the sunlit part at left. Tfs!

A perfect exposure on the bright highlights of the snow with the dark old tree adding excellent graphic elements against the lighter sky. Good sharpness and smart choice of a vertical frame to accentuate the height of the gnarled old tree. Looks like the wind is strong at times or the top of the tree was hit by lightning. Tfs!

Looks like an Australian eucalyptus tree of some sort. It nicely frames the fallen branch in the lake at right and the bg shoreline. The channel at left adds good lead in lines and sharpness is excellent throughout. Nice reflections in the tranquil water. The irises in the workshops are lovely. Tfs!

I am planning on going to Bucharest soon so this is interesting. Nice repetition of the tables and chairs waiting for the summer crowds! Great sharpness and well framed and composed. The diagonal path slashing through the centre adds dynamism. I like the diffused light & soft pastel colours. Nice repetition also of the arches along the balcony. Tfs!

From one arch in the fg to another set at McDonalds in the bg! Good sharpness and superb framing. The people add scale and animate the scene. I like the soft diffused light and colorful street scene. The bg tower and spire make a superb focal point positioned nicely over the vanishing point. Tfs!

The orange red facad eof the building at right contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the al fresco dining area at left looks inviting. The statue adds a good focal point. Superb sharpness and a perfect exposure on the bright highlights. The dark silhouetted tree branches at left frame the scene nicely. Tfs!

Looks similar to some of the Romanian and Greek Orthodox styles of religious art. Good sharpness and saturation. Punchy light contrasts and well framed and composed. If this was a composite image stitched from 3, you've done a superb an flawless job. The 2 half circles top and bottom nicely frame the Virgin Mary. Tfs!
