I like the diffused light and the subtle warm cold color contrast between the grey blue asphalt and the red roof of the Alsatian restaurant. And I know they don't serve dog in there ;-) You would have to go to Korea and look long and hard to find a back street restaurant with a canine menu, apparently for stamina,, although I never tried or saw ant need to try it. The glimpse of water bottom left adds interest. Tfs!

Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the richly saturated yellow green grass and the blue sky and water. Wonderful rippled reflections and the decaying piers add interest. Nice repetition of the boats on the far shore. Tfs!

The orange tinted clouds contrast well against the blue sea and sky and the tongue of land at right adds a focal point and centre of interest. Good sharpness and the distant hazy bg blue grey island makes a good secondary focal point. Tfs!

Good graphism and shadow detail with a surreal dramatic sky. The reddish brown sepia tint top right contrasts well against the blue grey clouds. The people add scale and animate the scene. I like the upward pov on the mounted ship. Tfs!

A fantastic nocturnal shot all in gold and black. Good sharpness and graphic elements with superb symmetrical reflections and nice framing of the silhouetted people within the entrance arch and it cylindrical reflection. Good repetition of the windows. Tfs!

Well framed and composed although I would have left a little more breathing space at the top above the statue's head. Well managed low light levels with good contrasts between the textures and tones. Have a nice week!

Good density levels with excellent sharpness and punchy light contrasts. The twisted ruin of the tower adds a fine focal point and graphic elements. A nice blue sky that contrasts well against the red roof and brick wall at right. Tfs!

The 2 dark trees at right add a nice graphic element and nicely frame the semi frozen bg. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with the horizon placed below the centre line. Good shadow play in the fg. Have a nice week!
Sunshine at Livorno by Silvio1953 (111038)

Fantastic graphism and silhouettes with wonderful reflections in the tranquil rock pools and more impressionist ones in the rippled bg water. The stone fort and islet add an interesting bg focal point. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs!

I like the wide angled panoramic format and inclusion of the Sydney Harbour Bridge at right and the iconic Opera house at left, nicely bookending this superb nocturnal shot. The city sandwiched between the 2 looks impressive against the blue hour sky. Good sharpness and nice reflections at right. Tfs!
