Some fine journalistic street photography is illustrated here with an eye to timing, perspective and human interaction with the wares on display within the shop window. Good sharpness and color with effective tight framing and cropping. Tfs.

A pleasant bucolic scene of green meadows and lush irrigated fields. Good sharpness & saturation. I like the elevated vantage point. The twin silos provide a needed focal point. Tfs.

This is like something you might expect to see exhibited at Wattens. Good graphic elements between the dark and light tones with the swirling and contorted lines adding interest and lead in lines. The musical notes and their repetition are fantastic! Tfs.

Poorer rural mainland Chinese immigrants who cannot afford expensive accommodation in central HK often resort to these floating houses and turn to fishing to support themselves and save money for a one way fare to the USA, Canada or Australia / NZ. A superb daily life scene with good sharpness and color. Tfs.

Wonderful warm vs cold colour contrasts between the yellow facade of the half-timbered house, and the blue sky, with excellent sharpness. Perspective has been well managed. The dark wooden slats provide a graphic element against the lighter toned bg. Tfs.

Immaculate density levels that have given superb saturation with clean whites and solid blacks that provide punchy light contrasts. Good warm cold color contrasts between the red roofs and blue sky. The graphism of the dark palm tree is a bonus. Tfs!

A textbook illustration of how to do diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point, and as in every good photo, there is something at the end of the converging lines to make the visual 'journey' worthwhile, in this case the tram. You were wise to be cautious about trams from the rear! Tfs.

Ah, love is in the air! You've captured a romantic and intimate moment between the couple on the spiral stairs. Good sharpness, color, and saturation. The diagonal axis of the stairs across the frame adds dynamism. Tfs.

A marvellous duo toned sunset with the contrasting hot and cold colors of orange and blue. Good sharpness and color saturation. The diagonal slant of the clouds adds nice dynamism. Good silhouettes and graphism of the fg trees. Tfs.
