Good graphic elements of darks vs lights, enhanced by the white snow. Excellent sharpness and soft pastel colors. Good textural details in the fg snow. The solitary person walking along the well trodden path through the snow animates the shot. Tfs!

Another post processed image with the look of a watercolor painting. I like the splash of color from the red flowering tree and yellow flowering tree across the street. The sweeping curve of the tram track adds superb lead in lines and perspective. Nice placement of the vertical lines centrally. Tfs!

This iconic bridge was on my bucket list in a short day or 2 in London before leaving for Amsterdam. Impeccable sharpness and nice reflections in the Thames. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue light and warm coppery reds. Tfs!

A superb upward pov on the tower with good sharpness and a soft green tint presumably from the outdoor fluorescent lighting. Good sharpness and the 2 circular clock-faces lit in yellow orange stand out well. There appears to be some light fog too as the top is becoming hazy. Tfs!

Superb warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the yellow red illuminated stone walls of the house. Good sharpness and excellent tight framing. Good color saturation and marvellous density levels that have given punchy light contrasts. Tfs!

The dark rocky outcrops in the fg nicely frame the brightly lit sunny beach in the bg. The people add scale and animate the scene. Good warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the warm reddish brown sand. Nice reflections in the tidal rock pools. Tfs!

That is quite a masterfully created bronze sculpture. Amazing detail with good sharpness and fine textural details. The cyan verdigris contrasts well against the reddish brown hued bronze. An effective tight frame with a nice neutral grey wall backdrop. Tfs!
Expecting Delay... In L.A. by serp2000 (39540)

I only spent 10 minutes in LA and was off again to Yosemite after a bus from Tucson. Love the deadbeat sign in the bg. It adds a whimsical touch. A bright sunny day devoid of the choking smog LA used to infamous for. A crowded street for sure and colorful and sharp. Tfs!

Nice wildlife shot of the two sparrows. Superb use of a shallow dof with excellent sharpness and good shadow detail. Backlight has been well managed. Good to have a reflection in the eye of the bird at left. A nice splash of sunlight on the back of the bird at right. Tfs!

I like the repetition of the colorful flutes and their mass, resembling a straw broom. A superb daily life scene from India with good sharpness. I like the improvised use of masking tape! Good color and saturation. Tfs!
