Good sharpness and the low level interior light has been well managed. Excellent colour and saturation. The draped window at right augments the available light. The daily life tapestry of days gone by on the wall adds interest. Good graphism of the dark cross against the white skylight. Tfs!

Good to see a ladder at right as those embankment walls look super steep for anyone that accidentally falls into the canal. Excellent use of diminishing linear perspective with the dual sides of the canal converging towards a vanishing point at the back. Good sharpness and nice reflections. Excellent repetition of patterns and shapes in the architecture. Tfs!

I've been there years ago and it hasn't changed much at all. Nice repetition of the alternating black and white umbrellas along the footpath. The markets are one of the highlights when visiting Hobart. Good sharpness and I like the wide angled panoramic crop. Tfs!

The graceful bg bridge arching across the channel in the centre bg makes a fine focal point. You were so lucky with the weather. It was miserable and grey with rain showers when I was in northern Norway. Nice blue skylight reflections in the water and the jagged green peaks are a delight. Tfs!

At least you had sunny weather with blue skies. It was heavily overcast with occasional showers the first time I visited. I think I have passed through Prague 2 or 3 times now. Charles Bridge is always a good choice for sightseers. There is live entertainment and artists at work all along the bridge. Excellent sharpness and framing. Tfs!

That is certainly a novel and unique way to recycle and reuse disposable plastic bottles! What a great idea! The mixture of white and green makes it look like a traditional snowclad green pine tree. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. Tfs!

Looks like a great spot for a barbecue and a glass of wine! Nice reflections in the tranquil water and the ripples made by the duck or water bird add charm. The sunlit yellow green grass at right contrasts well against the cooler, grey blue hues at left. The dark tree trunks frame the water nicely and provide a nice graphic element. Tfs!

Amazing repetion of the windsurfer vehicles sans sails. Their masts add a nice graphic element against the lighter grey sky. A pleasant diffused light and the angled row adds dynamism and perspective. The old pier stumps along the beach add interest and the bg spire top left makes a fine focal point in the distance. Tfs!
As a self portrait by jemaflor (84777)

I often agonize over whether to include my own shadow or not but here it forms an integral part of the composition and adds a nice graphic element to boot! The wheel tracks curving through the snow in the fg add depth and perspective with good lead in lines towards the top right. Tfs!

Wonderful repetition of the fallen leaves littering the flagstone path. The dual sides of the path converging towards the back add excellent lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Good sharpness a soft diffused light. I like the splash of yellow near the vanishing point and white sky. Tfs!
