I am planning on going to Serbia soon so this is of interest to me. A wonderful blue sky. I have only had 1 day of weather like this since early November last year which makes you appreciate it all the more. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts with excellent saturation. The soft yellow ochre color of the building contrasts splendidly against the blue sky too to give a nice warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

I like the warm golden color tones and balanced symmetry of the composition. Superb sharpness and the lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective take the eye deep into the image towards the back and the stained glass window is well positioned at the vanishing point. Tfs!

Extremely well managed backlight here with good shadow detail and a good exposure despite the difficult lighting. Excellent sharpness and the people add scale and follow the the most obvious line of diminishing linear perspective by using the path and stairs at right. At first glance I thought that this was Morocco. Excellent density levels and strong light contrasts. Tfs!

The resting horse and sheep in the fg at left add considerable charm to this shot of the picturesque English countryside as a marvellous backdrop. Good sharpness and a pleasant overall diffused light with just a few patches of sunlight breaking through the thick clouds. The chapel of Lancing College makes a fine focal point in the bg. Tfs!

Effective tight framing and good management of the low interior light levels. The ornate Baroque style of architecture and decorations in gold are amazing. The male version of the caryatids at left supporting the pillars or rather an integral part of the pillar itself are eyecatching.

Good graphic elements offered by the dark wooden chalet against the white snow. A soft diffused light with excellent sharpness and good to catch the near blizzard conditions with the falling snow. I like the simple, minimalist composition. The diagonal slope of the terrain adds dynamism. Tfs!
a symbol of progress by dkmurphys (49338)

A deep, rich blue sky. Wonderful density levels that have given perfect saturation and strong light contrasts. Crisp clean whites and solid blacks with good framing and composition. The iconic tip of the Eiffel Tower is instantly recognisable. I like the repetitive patterns of the windows. Tfs!

Good shadow detail and sharpness and the bg blue sky makes a fine backdrop. Excellent colour and saturation. The sidelight from the right has given nice long shadows of the trees. I like the dapple lighting and shadow play. The angled pov on the stone cottage showing 2 facades adds depth. Good graphism of the dark trees against the lighter sky. Tfs!
open market by berek (38520)

The relatively clear path at right adds excellent lead in lines and deep diminishing linear perspective. Lots of d and c cups at left in this undercover market! The man drinking tea adds authenticity. Good sharpness and colour. The red and white Turkish flag adds place and context. Good repetition of the fabrics and clothes at right. Tfs!
The Minarets of Sultan Ahmet by mcmtanyel (13493)

I went inside on my 2nd attempt. The first attempt failed as it was 5 pm prayer time. It's a magnificent building for sure both from the outside and also the interior. I like the long vertical bookmark format. The fg people add scale and context. Good symmetry of 2 of the 6 minarets visible here. Tfs!
