A fine Autumn shot with wonderful symmetrical reflections in the relatively still water and superb warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and golden foliage and the red facade of the boat. Excellent sharpness and saturation. Tfs!
Jacarandas Jerez for Malgo by cornejo (29279)
ChrisJ (95080) 2014-10-19 12:46
The flowering purple jacarandas remind me of October in east coast Australia when they are in full bloom there. They look equally lovely in Spain at the opposite time of year. The colourful, ubiquitous oleander trees enhance the effect. Good sharpness and density levels. Tfs!

ChrisJ (95080) 2014-10-19 12:39
A superb sunset shot with lovely warm vs cold colour contrasts between the orange tinted clouds and the blue sky and fg blue grey asphalt road. Nice reflections in the Mediterranean sea and the fg palms at right add a good graphic element. Tfs!
St Bartholomew's Church, Thurstaston by snunney (80537)
ChrisJ (95080) 2014-10-15 18:37
The red roof and spire of the old stone cathedral contrast splendidly against the blue sky to give a superb warm vs cold colour contrast. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts, and it seems you struck a day with no rain or cloud which is nearly always a bonus! Tfs!
The Mermaid by cagla (4108)

I never knew of the existence this mermaid although I've seen the ones in Copenhagen and Warsaw. I have been to Marmaris and Dalaman as well as Fethiye but don't recall hearing or seeing anything at all about it, although here it is, large as life! Tfs!
M.J.O'Neill's by Miguel82 (21682)
ChrisJ (95080) 2014-10-15 18:31
The red brick facde of the building contrasts superbly against the cyan trim around the windows and door. The woman adds scale and graphism against the dark interior and doorway. Good sharpness and density levels. Tfs!
Spiderman by Miguel82 (21682)
ChrisJ (95080) 2014-10-15 18:28
A colourful ensemble of stuffed toys and cartoon characters including Spiderman and Minnie Mouse. Good sharpness, saturation and reflections. Nice repetition in the fg of the various bears and cows with even the odd rabbit and elephant! Tfs!
La sirena by carlo62 (29309)
ChrisJ (95080) 2014-10-15 18:25
I know this spot thanks to Malgo! Nice reflection in the fg fountain which I seem to recall was bone dry when I was there in August. The red and yellow facades of the reconstructed buildings contrast well against the blue skylight in the water. Tfs!
Château de Missillac VII by dta (64142)
ChrisJ (95080) 2014-10-15 18:23
Nice symmetrical reflections in the mirror like surface of the water with good density levels and superb sharpness. Excellent color and saturation. I like the puffy cloud at right and the strip of green. Well composed with the horizon offset from the centre. Tfs!
Church of Saint John the Baptist by papagolf21 (83978)
ChrisJ (95080) 2014-10-15 18:20
A fine cross river view of this elegant bridge spanning the river. Good diminishing linear perspective leading the eye towards the Church of Saint John the Baptist in the distance nicely positioned at the vanishing point. Tfs!
