A superb decisive moment catching the last short moments of the setting sun. Good sharpness and I like the saturated sunset colours of orange in the sky contrasting against the blue sea. The distant boat makes a good focal point. Tfs.

A superb birds eye view of the green valley with the picturesque little village contrasting superbly against the rural surroundings. I might have added more shadows and contrast. A spectacular vantage point with impeccable sharpness and nice framing. Tfs.

The dark lamppost at right nicely frames the urban scene and contrasts well against the white washed walls of the bg buildings. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. The blue sky sets off the white colors perfectly. Tfs.

Hello dear Christiane,
A nice contrast between the shoolboy and the middle aged lady out shopping. A superb daily life scene with good sharpness and colour. The street and gutter at right add deep lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective off towards the top left. Tfs.

Missed this one. Punchy light contrasts on account of the superb density levels. Good sharpness, color and saturation. It looks like a cosy retreat and bar. The open doors are most welcoming. I like the warm yellow red color of the doors contrasting against the blue anchor signs at left. Tfs.

I like the angled pov and the repetition of the agave plants with their spiky pale green leaves. Good sharpness and the pink fg flowers add a welcome splash of colour to the palette. Nice use of diminishing linear perspective and the bg people add scale. Tfs.

Deep Purple! Smoke on the water and fire in the sky, only the latter is true in this image and the colour fits the old song. Good saturation and sharpness and the lights of the small village in the valley add interest. Tfs.

It looks to be a dry and desolate area and the fg donkeys appear malnourished in this unforgiving land with their protruding rib cage bones. The goats and cattle have fared a little better. The camel makes an interesting backdrop. Good sharpness and lots of interesting details to look at. Tfs!

A superb rural daily life scene of the harvested vineyard and pile of cut trees ready for further chopping to provide firewood for the winter ahead. The terrain certainly looks dry from lack of rainfall. A wonderful blue sky backdrop that contrasts well against the yellow fg dried grass. Tfs.
Ajacio, le port by Sergiom (61906)

Nice reflections in the water with good sharpness and marvellous repetition of the colourful fishing boats. The orange lifebuoys and the red and yellow trim on the boats contrasts well agaisnt the blue keels to give a pleasing warm cold color contrast. Tfs.
