I like the repetition of the dancers and the woman in orange rather than pink nicely breaks the pattern. The blue pants that the men are wearing set up a superb warm cold color contrast against the pink and orange. Their stylish hats add interest. Good sharpness and a nice diffused light. Tfs.

A superb daily life scene of the 2 artists at work with effective tight framing and good sharpness. Excellent color and saturation. A pleasant diffused light and the warm orange red colors contrast well against the splashes of blue. Tfs.

Amazing repetition of the windsurfer para-sails with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. I like the repetition of the 4 yacht like windsurfers on the beach at left. The spires of the cathedrals nicely break the uniform skyline. Tfs.

Bonjour Jean Jacques,
The vertical format works well here and the decision to start the diagonal line in the bottom left corner and crop in the top right was a good one. Excellent sharpness and superb color and saturation with good density levels. The repetitive pattern of the stripes is mesmerizing. Tfs.

This looks similar to the view from the teahouse overlooking the Tigris River. A real pity much of this area will be flooded by the new reservoir downstream. The clear blue sky makes a good backdrop. Excellent sharpness and well composed with good shadow detail. Tfs.

The deep blue Mediterranean sky makes a superb backdrop to the ruined temple, with good sharpness and a fine, angled pov. The yellow red color of the stone contrasts well against the coller blue tones of the sky. Tfs.

A superb winter scene from Japan with nice repetition of the small, neat A frame houses. Good sharpness and the odd splash of color stands out from the snow. I like the high pov and superb framing. Tfs.

I think that Turkey has more ancient (antique) ruins of Greek origin than Greece itself! The Ionian bull horn design of the columns here is evident. Good sharpness and the fluted white marble columns contrast superbly against the blue sky. One of the few I haven't yet seen so tfs!
THE BRIDGE by Mikas-2011 (231)

I like the bank of distant fog shrouding the horizon behind the arched bridge. Apparently San Francisco is also often enveloped in fog. Good sharpness and the strong backlight has been well managed. The repetition of the partly silhouetted fg yachts and their masts adds a nice graphic element to the image. Tfs.
