This brings back memories! You had a fantastic blue sky to offset the red tones of the impressive church. Good sharpness and a balanced composition. The subtle fg shadow play is nice and the side4lighting excellent. The flowerpots are a new addition since I was there in July 2007. Tfs!

I like the wide angled panoramic format and the superb warm vs cold colour contrast betweent he reddish brown foliage of the Autumnal trees and the blue sky. Winter comes early in these parts! The 2 bald rocks either side nicely bookend the shot and add balance to the composition. Tfs!

I am so jealous! Raining and overcast in Ulsvag today and yesterday so I skipped Lofeten and went to Tromso instead. Gorgeous coastal scenery with excellent sharpenss and saturation. Nice reflections and the road leads the eye in nicely. Tfs!

Nice alternating colors in the facades of the attractive buildings. I like the architectural symmetry and harmony. Good color, sharpness and framing. Nice reflections in the pufddle bottom right and the spheres add interest. A nice blue sky too. Tfs!

The dual red brick gates contrast well against the blue sky. Adequate sharpness and smart choice of a vertical format. The bg castle looming over the scene adds a fine focal point and centre of interest. The vegetation frames the whole scene nicely. Tfs!

Lol! A nice family shot on vacation that tells us something about Holland at the same time. Excellent sharpness throughout. The tourist paraphenalia in the bg adds context. Good graphism and color with nice light contrasts. Tfs!

Superb density levels and contrast that have given good exposure levels and saturation. Superb sharpness and wonderful lighting. Excellent shadow detail and the diagonal shadow adds dynamism. A nice warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue sky and the reddish brown castle walls. Tfs!

Bonjour Pierre & greetings from Tromso Norway!
Nice framing of the imposing spire of the cathedral with adherence to the rule of thirds in the composition. Exquisite detail in the stonework with good sharpness and the people add scale. Excellent shadow detail and a fantastic upward pov. Tfs!

Missed this one. A superb landscape with good sharpness, colour and saturation. The red roofs of the old church contrast splendidly against the blue sky. A wonderful elevated pov also, with the verdant green fg completing the color palette. Tfs!
