I will have to add this place to my bucket list next time I am in the Naples area. The yellow cupola on the horizon contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and well composed. Nice fg reflections in the sea and the men on the small fishing boats animate the scene. The bg castle adds interest. The outdoor dining area with people at left balances the composition. Tfs!

Well composed shot here with good sharpness, colour and saturation. The red flowers contrasts well against the blue grey colours. Nice reflections in the wet pavement. The bg building reminds me a little of the 7 sisters building in Warsaw. Nice repetition of the gold statues. The path adds strong lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Tfs!

A superb sunset with good sharpness and excellent composition utilising the rule of thirds, with good sharpness and superb saturation. I like the z shaped cloud illuminated above the setting sun. The dark tongue of rocky shoreline at right adds a nice touch of graphism. Excellent warm cold color contrasts between the blue grey and orange hues. Tfs!

Smart choice of a vertical frame with superb use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point provided by the converging dual lines of the narrow street. The red flag contrasts well against the blue sky to give a nice warm vs cold color contrast. The car and people are well placed near the back vanishing point. Tfs!

Effective tight framing with clever use of the strong diagonal in the composition, nicely bisecting the image into two. Good warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue as well as the yellow fishing nets. I like the contrast in textures and shapes of the ropes, wooden side of the boat and the fishing net draped over the side. Impeccable sharpness and excellent color and saturation. Tfs!

The contrast between the empty fg and crowded mid section of this beach is striking. Good sharpness and the winking sign adds life and humor to the shot. Nice to see the bg forested in green and not covered in a concrete jungle of high rise which has happened to many other beaches around the world. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Excellent sharpness also. The fg sandcastle at left adds to the shot. Tfs!

Nice repetition of the sunflowers with a superb warm cold color contrast betweeen the yellow flowers and the blue grey sky. Good sharpness and saturation. Well composed using the rule of thirds with the horizon well positioned away from the centre. I like the slanted rays of sunlight emanating from the clouds top left. Tfs!

A superb high vantage point with good sharpness and the u shape of the bay nicely guides the eye around the image. Good color and saturation. I see an Australian gum tree or eucalypt top right! And some fg prickly pear native to central America. The repetition of the palms along the avenue adds interest. Tfs!

Nice use of the arches as framing devices with the dark arch at the back well posaitioned over the vanishing point. The man in robes adds scale and animates the scene as well as adding context. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Excellent side lighting and good shadow detail. Good textural detail. Tfs!
