Effective tight framing with good sharpness and nice subtle warm cold color contrasts between the yellow and blue tones. The green pot plants at the bottom add life and interest. Good repetition of patterns and shapes. The Ionic styled Greek columns frame the centre nicely. Tfs.

Well managed interior lighting. Just a hint of green from the fluorescent overhead lights. Easy to mask or reduce by adding magenta. A pleasant diffused light and the group of art connoisseurs discussing the art, admiring in silence or following audio guides, adds interest. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with natural looking color. Tfs.

Lovely warm versus cold colour contrasts between the blue and yellow with good sharpness and saturation. I like the tall vertical format. The 2 old fashioned fishing boats make ideal focal points in the fg. The diagonal esplanade at right adds dynamism, and the people strolling along it add scale. Tfs.

Looks like a cool retreat on a hot summers day. Good sharpness and I like the square format. Excellent sharpness and the greenery is soothing. The women chatting animate the scene. The blue shutter at left contrasts nicely against the yellow doors in the centre. The birdcages add interest. Tfs.

The red brick ruins of the building are well positioned just left of centre and the 2 dark, gaunt and leafless trees behind it add a nice graphic element. Good sharpness and the lush green grass is well saturated. It must rain here a bit. The stone fence enclosure adds interest. The 2 birds circling caught my eye. Tfs.

The warm late afternoon sunlight striking the rock at right does indeed give a warm golden glow. Good sharpness and excellent saturation. The yellow orange color tones contrast superbly against the blue sea and sky. The fishing structure adds interest. Good timing to get the breaking wave. Tfs.

I just walked up the stairs that zig zag up the cliff outside and did not know about this secret cave approach. It reminds me of the tunnels at Amasya near Ankara that go up to the old cliff side tombs. Your ghostly shadow adds mood. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue tints and good repetition of the steps. Tfs.
Downtown Vienna by edge (6243)

Vienna was perhaps my favorite city in Europe. Florence and Venice are right up there too and tie with Vienna. Everywhere I looked there was something old and ornate and interesting. As depicted here. Good sharpness and the people animate the scene. I got quite addicted to the Austrian torte cakes too with their crunchy caramelized fillings. The 2 bg statues add interest here. Tfs.

Superb warm cold color contrasts between the blue bed and the red tinted floor and walls, with excellent sharpness. I like the angled pov and the Louis 16th Sun king mural in the bg at right. A nice angled pov showing 2 facades of the elaborate bed. Tfs.
Scenes from a Fair - IV by fabbs99 (16433)

A colourful daily life scene within the book store. Good sharpness and density levels that have given vibrant saturation, clean whites and solid blacks together with punchy light contrasts. The Hindi text at the back adds place and context. Tfs.
