Guten tag Wolfgang,
Can I make a reservation at this pool after you finish? Looks wonderful and protected from the rough water behind. The water is so clear it is easy to spot any sea urchins. The turquoise colour is nice. Good textural details. Tfs!

Good symmetrical reflections with excellent colour saturation and sharpness. The yellow fishing boat with attendant crowd makes a fine focal point. The hot colors of red orange and yellow contrast well against the blue sea. Nice reflections in the wet sand. Tfs!

The dark abandoned pier makes a fine photographic subject and the shallow fg dof adds interest. The birds animate the scene, and sharpness and colour saturation are excellent. A subtle warm cold color contrast between the blue grey and yellow seaweed on the beach. Tfs!

A good upward pov with the people descending the stairs animating the superb interior shot of the impressive architecture and artwork. Good sharpness and I found out something about the bg statue from Wiki: "Theseus Defeats the Centaur by Antonio Canova (1804–1819), Kunsthistorisches Museum" Tfs!

A nice landscape from Brazil with pinpoint sharpness and good color saturation and density levels. A superb high pov and the big tree at left adds depth. The bg village makes a good focal point. Backlighting has been well managed. Tfs!

Punchy light contrasts yet still with good shadow detail. Well composed with the arch starting in the bottom right and adding dynamism. The top leaves add a good graphic element, depth and mask a white area of sky. Merci!

OMG, A giant lion! Wait... An optical illusion, and well captured. Good sharpness and the reddish yellow lion contrasts superbly against the backdrop of blue sky. Excellent density levels and sharpness. The people in the car seem unconcerned. Tfs!

I like the angled pov on the street corner. Good sharpness and nice warm cold colour contrasts between the red brick and blue grey roof and blue sky. Good sharpness and density levels. The fg shadow play adds interest. Tfs!

Good shadow detail and a cooling, calming effect of the greenery and shadows. I like the little stone bird and cat. The hanging cactus plants add interest. Good sharpness and colour saturation. Nice natural repetition. Tfs!

Good sharpness and nice freezing of the falling water at left with good motion blur in the churning waters of the plungepool. Excellent color saturation and framing. Nice reflections in the top. Good shadow detail. Tfs!
