Hello dear Silvio,
The 2 butterflies attending to the calls of nature are well framed and the shallow dof has isolated and emphasised them distinctly from the oof fg and bg. Good colour and saturation. The warm rust red color on their wings contrasts well against the cooler blue hues. Tfs.

Reminds me of a hotel I stayed at in Miyajima where I tried sushi for the first time. It was okay too. Good color scheme with excellent sharpness and the diagonal lines add dynamism. Nice repetition of the squares formed by the windows at left. The opposing angle of the central vertical cloth stands provides contrast. Tfs.

The strong backlight has been well managed with excellent shadow detail and a pleasant diffused light. Soft natural looking pastel colours and the people animate the scene. The inverted wishbone shaped roads adds dual lead in lines. Tfs.

I have never flown Lufthansa. One day, perhaps. Good sharpness and especially considering the speed that these aircraft move at. A nice upward pov. The yellow part of the tail contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs.

The red flowers throughout add a welcome splash of color. Excellent sharpness and effective tight framing. The blue skylight reflected in the metallic umbrella contrasts well against the yellow green vegetation. The fg branches add depth and layering. Tfs.

The shallow dof works well here at front and back, and I like the amazing natural repetition of the hexagonal shapes. There are a few places in Australia such as Fingal and Millaa Millaa Falls where the same pehenomenon can be seen, albeit on a smaller scale.
The lichens and grass add texture. The graffiti is not so impressive or welcome. A nice warm cold color contrast between the blue sea top left and the warmer toned yellow red rocks. Tfs.

Reminds me of a shot I took from my hotel in Nanjing, China.
Nice repetitive cloud patterns in the sky with superb sharpness. A good contrast between the old fg and new bg highrise. Tfs.

The yellow and blue colored boats give a nice warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and excellent textural details in the fg sand revealed by the sidelight from the left. The horizon line is well positioned on the horizontal 1/3 axis. The crowds of people seated on the shore add interest. Tfs.
Plunge and spray by ktanska (25505)

A spectacular waterfall well positioned and framed within the vertical 1/3 axis at right. The people add scale and animate the scene. The blue sky is a magical bonus that adds a subtle warm cold color contrast against the faint yellow green tones of the vegetation. The dark volcanic rock at far right gives a good graphic element against the lighter toned water. Tfs.

The dark tones of the old boat add a nice graphic element against the lighter tones of the sky. Good sharpness and fantastic warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue in this superb sunset. Good impressionist style reflections in the water. The cyclists and people on the dock at right add life. Tfs.
