Wow! A marvellous high pov overlooking this attractive valley with its yellow-green fields contrasting strongly against the shaded bg blue hazy mountain ridge. Effective tight framing with superb sharpness. The fg pink flowers add depth and layering to the composition. Tfs.

I saw some of these impressive azulejos in Lisbon. Effective tight framing here with good sharpness and excellent density levels. The grid pattern of the tiles adds interest. A good exposure on the bright central highlights. Tfs.

Good sharpness with nice fg reflections in the water. The Brooklyn bridge at right anchors the shot and provides strong lead in lines and perspective. Amazing repetition of the bg 'forest' of skyscrapers. The horizon line is well positioned on the 1/3 horizontal axis. Tfs.

The bright sunny light has been well captured here and the tourist with sunglasses reinforces the effect. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The strong backlight has been well managed and there is still good shadow detail in the shaded facades of the buildings. Tfs.

Superb sharpness and effective tight framing with good composition and saturation. I like the nice warm cold color contrast between the red and blue. Excellent textural details and lighting on the fg stone. The diagonal central rail adds dynamism. Tfs.

The blue and white boat tarpaulins contrast well against the yellow hues of the umbrellas and the warmer tones of the walls in apricot, red and yellow. Effective tight framing with superb sharpness and the people animate the scene. The single tree adds a nice splash of green. Tfs.

The dry, arid environment makes this look more like a battle in the US civil war or Custer's last stand than somewhere in Europe. Excellent sharpness and effective tight framing excluding the borders of the frame. Amazing repetition of the horses and soldiers. Tfs.

I like the parallel diagonal line of the smoke with the mountain ridge. Good sharpness and the flattened perspective from the zoom works well here. The US flag adds place and context. The busy fg adds depth and layering. Tfs.

I might have reduced brightness a bit and increased shadows and decreased highlights. Good sharpness and excellent composition and framing. The red brick atrium contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs.

Good morning Maciej,
One of my favourite cities in Poland. A superb blue hour shot with good sharpness and wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the blue and the yellow illumination. A superb high pov with excellent framing and composition. Tfs.
