The village appears to be marooned on an island in a sea of fog! Good sharpness and nice graphic elements of contrasting dark and light tones. The heavy frost on the fg grass adds interest. I like the minimalist color and muted saturation. Tfs!

The Rhone Alps are very impressive. Punchy light contrasts with a good exposure on the white highlights of the snow. Excellent sharpness and nice graphic elements of the dark spire against the lighter blue snow. Tfs.

A good high pov but I am missing a bit of sharpness. The long sweeping curve of the beach adds good lead in lines. Excellent color contrasts between the yellow sand and the blue sea and sky. The bg fish traps made from bamboo add interest. Tfs.
Low tide, high tide by jemaflor (85548)

A fantastic composite shot of the same beach at different times of the day. I prefer the lower shot which is taken at high tide and the black rocks are now covered. The reflections in the wet sand help too and of course the marvellous sunset colors of orange red. The sea is also bluer than the upper image. Tfs!

A good upward pov on the alley with excellent sharpness and superb bounced light off the light reflective walls. A clear blue sky backdrop that contrasts well against the white washed walls. I like the repetition of the orange red triangular chimney structures. Tfs!

Smart choice of a vertical format with good sharpness and the red brick top of the building at right sets up a nice warm cold colour contrast against the blue sky. Nice textural detail in the building at left with the grey prisms, which also add a good repetitive element. Tfs!

Good symmetry of the evenly sized and evenly matched dueling goats. Well composed with plenty of breathing space right around and excellent sharpness. I like the reflected light off the shiny metallic sculptures. Superb color an saturation. Tfs.

Punchy light contrasts with good fg textural detail and superb sharpness. Nice repetition of the patterns and shapes formed by the ruins. The angled pov add dynamism. Good to have the horizon line well away from the dead center. The Roman villa is fascinating. Tfs.

The yellow and red colors of the childrens slippery slide contrast well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the lush green grass enhances the color palette. The lamppost helps to frame and define the scene. Good textural details in the fg grass. Tfs.

A well composed shot with plenty of breathing space around the castle. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light with superb saturation. The fg lake with reflections of the castle walls makes a good focal point. The flowering shrubs add a welcome splash of colour. Tfs.
