Wonderful color saturation with excellent sharpness. The seated Buddha statue at left makes a fine focal point and it appears to be surveying the scene. Its golden color contrasts well against the bg blue sky. The village tripping down the slopes at right in the distance completes the scene. Tfs.

Missed this one. Good sunset colours with excellent saturation and nice graphic elements and silhouettes. The small bay with the fishing boat in the fg adds a nice focal point. The tree at top right above the cliff adds especially nice silhouettes. Tfs.

Amazing repetition of the number of moored yachts in the harbour. Fantastic reflections and the jagged bg mountains make a superb backdrop. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Some interesting cloud patterns in the sky. I like the wide angled panoramic crop. Tfs.
Reflets au port de Bastia by Cricri (108095)
ChrisJ (100180) 2015-03-30 13:42
Missed this one. A striking warm cold color contrast between the blue and yellow with marvellous distorted reflections. Good to include the floating object protruding from the water and the reflections of the fishing boats and outboard motors at the top add context and place. Tfs.
Riquewihr XII by cornejo (32780)

Looks like a charming and authentic spot for some al fresco dining. Good sharpness and I like the fantastic graphic elements added by the cross hatch patterns of the brown cross beams on the white facades of the bg buildings. A pleasant diffused light and well composed. Tfs.
Main Market of Cracow by Matyas (3054)

I know this spot. The was a giant head sculpture beside the city hall building in the bg but on the other side, and the underground catacombs were worth seeing under the central building. I like the extreme wide angled view bordering on a fish-eye lens. Nice warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue and yellow orange and red hues. Tfs.
Colours of La Boca by emka (80972)
ChrisJ (100180) 2015-03-30 13:27
Lots of complimentary opposite colors here such as yellow and blue, red and cyan, all that is missing is green vs magenta! The fg people passing by animate the scene and the plants on the upper left balcony behind the rails soften the scene. The blue sky makes a good backdrop. Excellent sharpness and saturation. Tfs.
Villa romaine de Massaciuccoli by Cricri (108095)

Bonjour, chère Cricri,
I like the natural looking pastel colors and the superb warm vs cold color contrast between the blue sky and the red brown bricks within the ruins. Good sharpness and excellent framing and composition with good breathing space right around. The angled wall remnant at left adds perspective. Tfs.
Hall of the Hosts (Mont-Saint-Michel) by jjcordier (77026)

Hello Jean Jacques,
The Gothic arches remind me of a similar church in Istanbul. The yellow red bricks in the upper part of the image contrast well against the blue grey tones in the floor and windows. Impeccable sharpness and smart choice of a vertical frame. The light coming through the windows helps define the interior of the building and adds shadows. Tfs.
Le Dernier Tramway by Gigidusud (16585)

If you loved Lisbon, you will also love Istanbul. The tram reminds me of the heritage Taksim Tram in Istiklal Street. Here I like the long vertical streaks of color in the wet pavement. The blue 'walk' signs contrast well against the predominant yellow colours. Tfs.
