The invisible diagonal axis formed by the 2 mushrooms adds dynamism and lead in lines. Good sharpness and dof with natural, realistic colour. I also like the warm cold color contrast between the yellow green grass and the blue grey vegetation. Have a nice week!

So Holland does not have a monopoly on tulip flowers in Europe! Nice to see them in France, too. Wonderful lead in lines and perspective with vivid colors and good sharpness and saturation. The downward slope of the terrain also helps to lead the eye towards the back of this image. Striking warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue and red. Merci!

The mist adds mood, mystery and atmosphere. A superb high pov overlooking the characteristic hilltop villages of these parts with their tightly clustered stone houses. Good sharpness and soft pastel colors. The elongated c shape nicely leads the eye right around the image. Tfs!

This would make a good bookmark! The elongated vertical format works well in this superb b&w image. Nice repetition of the vaulted arches with good sharpness and graphism. I also like the marvellous tonal range and textural details. The upward pointing triangular arrow shapes lead the eye imperceptibly towards the top. Tfs!
Bruxelles reflections 2 by lousat (68539)

Wonderful distorted reflections in the windows, that remind me of some of the 'melting' figures in Salvador Dali's art. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with perfect symmetry into first 2, then quadrants. Tfs!

I have never been under the SHB, but I did walk under the Storey Bridge in Brisbane 4 years ago and found a large gecko painting done in an Aboriginal style of art (indigenous Australians to the pc inclined). It is good to check out these usually hidden spaces from time to time as most people just drive straight over it, or only see a profile from a distance. Oh and I also walked under the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, although you cannot get as close to the support structure as depicted here due to concerns about terrorism. Tfs!

This reminds me of an American tv show I used to watch as a kid back in 1960's but the name of the show escapes me. Good use of a shallow dof and the whimsical dummy steals the show at left. A fine head and shoulders portrait of the man at right too! Tfs!
Devotion # 2 by Romano46 (15574)

Maybe she is praying to my namesake, St Christopher, the patron saint of travel? Her suitcase seems to suggest so. Good use of a shallow dof with excellent sharpness aon the lit candles, altar and chandelier with soft focus on the impressive artwork at the back. Tfs!

Tres jolie! I like the diagonal shaft of sunlight emanating from the sun. Good warm cold colour contrasts between the orange skies and hazy blue mountains. Good silhouettes and graphic elements with the tree, bench and structure at left. Bon semaine!
Le salin de l’ile Saint Martin by Cricri (96959)

I remember going to a salt farm in Thailand and having to wash my feet and shoes which were covered in salt and mud, so I hope you did not have too much problem here. The pinkish red color is unusual and contrasts superbly against the blue sky. The diagonal channel adds good lead in lines and dynamism. Tfs!
