I might have brightened the shadowed fg a little but the sunlit bg is great. The carpet of blue flowers contrasts well against the yellow green trees in the light. Good sharpness and amazing repetition of the flowers. Tfs!

Sensuous curves and I like the ornate decorations and artwork as well as the nice warm vs cold color contrast between the blue and yellow hues. Good sharpness and a nice upward pov. Effective tight framing. Bon semaine!

Nice motion blur in all 3 cascades with good warm light on the yellow green grass top left. I like the unusual natural perspective created by the vertical rock strata leading into the sea. Good sharpness and color saturation. Top shot! Tfs!

Looks similar to Lake Louise from the Agnes Lake trail in the Canadian Rockies. Good sharpness and the yellow green forest contrasts well against the blue water. The majestic snow capped peaks make a superb backdrop. Tfs!

Wow! Even some snow on the higher peaks in this one! A splendid high pov with good sharpness & excellent layering with the fg forest then the city and then more forested hills then finally the snowy peaks then sky. Good sharpness and natural looking colour. Tfs!

Hoping to do a tour here soon. I am off to Munich tomorrow. Hope all the scaffolding is gone. A superb high pov with good sharpness and excellent shadow detail despite the backlighting. The bg lake adds interest. Good graphism too. Tfs!

Missed this one. Must have been on tour. Superb sharpness as evidenced by the pinpoint clarity of the text. The colourfully attired people add scale and life to the scene. A nice blue sky that contrasts well against the red roofs at right. Tfs!

Amazing similarities in color and mood with Australian deserts. Here is 'Big Red' in the Simpson Desert which straddles south western Qld & south eastern Northern Territory.
Good sharpness and marvellous warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue. Tfs!

A wonderful blue sky with good sharpness and punchy light contrasts on account of the perfect density levels giving clean blacks and whites. The curved fg footpath adds dynamism. Some nice ornate decoration in the stone facade of the building. Tfs!

Nice reflections in the fg cobblestone path with good framing by the arches. Excellent sharpness and the Neptune statue makes a fine focal point. Backlight has been well managed. Good shadow detail and natural looking colour. Tfs!
