Effective tight framing on the clock with excellent sharpness and vibrant colour. Good textural and tonal details in the peeling paint. The shadows add a nice graphic element. Punchy light contrasts with good saturation. Merci!

Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and reddish orange granite rocks. The people walking their dog add scale and animate the scene. Aptly titled! I guess it would be hellish with no guiderail in winter with slippery ice and snow? Tfs!

I like the colourful facades of the bg buildings and the harmonious blending of slightly different architectural styles. Also a stark contrast between the well cared for and colorful bg and the less salubrious, well cared for and almost colourless fg. Nice repetition of the boats too. Tfs!

A good exposure on the bright white highlights with excellent sharpness and a superb angled pov. The zebra crossing at left adds lead in lines towards the building. A nice blue sky and perspective has been well managed. Bon semaine!

I like the reflection in the fg pool of water and the layered composition with the fg snow, mid level embankment row of trees and chalets at the back with yet another row of trees right at the back. Good sharpness and exposure levels. Tfs!

Wish I'd gone there now. I only had an analogue film camera in 2008 and spent an hour in the museum in low light levels trying to get a decent shot of the totem poles but was unsuccessful. Vibrant colour with adequate sharpness & effective tight framing. Tfs!

Send meee! Raining here near Istanbul for the past 4 days so a blue sky like this would suit me fine. The child walking in the fg and the bg boat add life and animate the scene as well as providing additional focal points. Good sharpness and the solitary coconut palm telss us this is a warm tropical place. Merci!

The shadow from the sidelight from the left adds good lead in lines towards the enigmatic statue. Good sharpness and shadow detail despite the dark volcanic rock. The groove in the center makes it look like its a 4 legged animal with a huge head. Good framing too. Tfs!

Our Swedish friends will be very happy with this shot! The blue and yellow go so well together. Nice repetition of the beach huts and bathing sheds. Excellent sharpness with good lead in lines and perspective. Have a nice week!

Wonderful symmetrical reflections in the tranquil waters with good sharpness, color and saturation. There is a halo at left so I would use a bigger feather margin. The 2 cottages make a fine focal point. Have a nice week!
