A nice minimalist shot of just the land sky and cross with good framing and composition. Nice overlay of the fg yellow green hill across the eroded bg reddish brown hill. The Calico text is eyecatching. Good use of a shallow dof too. Tfs!

A pleasant diffused light with good sharpness and excellent framing with plenty of breathing space right around the attractive chateau. I might have cropped a little from the fg to remove the earthen garden. The Autumn leaves add context. Tfs!

A good daily life scene from the local fish market with a perfect exposure on the white highlights of the ice. Nice repetition of the yellow price tags with the pink one breaking the pattern very well. The people add scale and context. Tfs!

Perhaps a slight rotation to the left? So that the central sign is vertical? The impressive neoclassical Greco Roman building makes a wonderful centre of interest. Good sharpness and the person at right adds scale. Tfs!

The surfer mural at right adds extra interest to this shot. Good color, sharpness and saturation. Excellent sharpness and the path at left adds good perspective and lead in lines. Punchy light contrasts and well composed. Tfs!

The red and yellow colored carriages look great against the blue sky backdrop & give a superb warm cold color contrast. Wonderful density levels with punchy light contrasts and good sharpness. It's amazing these old trains still run at all. Tfs!

I would imagine that it would be quite scary being up near the top of one of these high rise buildings during an earthquake. the curved stream adds nice lead in lines. Good sharpness and good repetition of the rectangular shapes. A nice clear blue sky and the flattened perspective makes the mts seem closer. Tfs!

You had great weather! It was raining and overcast when I arrived and departed Bodo but I gid get sunny breaks in Saltstraumen. Love the flowers at left and greenery. The jagged mountain peak top right adds nice depth & density levels are perfect. Tfs!

An amazing view of Bryce Canyon with the red hoodoos contrasting superbly against the blue sky. Tremendous sharpness and smart choice of a vertical format. Reminds me of the landscape around Cappadocia in Turkey. Tfs!

The cross hatch ivy pattern reminds me of a pie crust! Maybe I should go get something to eat, lol. Wonderful sidelight and shadow play in the fg and excellent sharpness. The yellow red tower contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs!
