A stunning sepia sunset sky with marvellous fg silhouettes on the horizon. Good saturation and a fine wide angled panoramic view. Nice density levels that have given perfect whites and blacks and superb light contrasts and dramatic shifts in tones. Tfs!

Lovely reflections in the calm water but I am missing a little sharpness, especially on the leaves of the bg trees. Perhaps more dof? Nice repetition of the blue boats and the bridge makes a fine focal point. A nice high pov. Tfs!

It looks to be an extremely popular temple judging by the big crowds! Good sharpness and a nice contrast between the old traditional temple and new bg highrise buildings of Tokyo. The 2 fg sloping roofs frame the bg temple nicely. Tfs!

Wonderful warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and salmon pink tinted rocks. The people add scale and context. Good sharpness and density levels and adequate breathing space right around. The wall adds deep lead in lines and perspective. Tfs!

Lovely reflections in the water and good to include the admiring crowd of onlooking catching the colourful sunset. Good warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and orange flecked clouds. Nice graphism and silhouettes. Tfs!
No Caribbean, to Jean Claude by cornejo (29287)

I like the high, hilltop pov. Good sharpness and saturation. Well composed with the horizon line placed slightly off centre. Good saturation and framing. The repetition of tiny specks on the beach adds interest, presumably deck chairs umbrellas and bathers. Tfs!
Bassin d'Arcachon et dune by jemaflor (82098)
ChrisJ (95080) 2014-10-14 20:18
The massive bg sand dune reminds me of the Sahara! Good density levels which have given perfect saturation and exposure levels, with crisp punchy light contrasts and excellent sharpness. I like the high elevated pov. The red roofs contrast well against the blue sea and sky. Tfs!

A superb aerial view of the St Lawrence River wetlands and 1000 lakes area. Good sharpness and natural looking color and saturation. The house with the red roof on the fg island attracts attention. Nice subtle reflections in the water. Tfs!

Good sharpness and lovely reflections in the still fg water. The jagged snow-capped peaks look majestic! Well composed and a soft diffused light throughout. Good shadow detail and saturation. The red wooden houses attract attention in the distance. Tfs!

A lovely rural scene from India with the richly saturated green rice paddies adding a lively splash of emerald colour. The big tree at left frames the scene well and adds a nice graphic element. A clear blue sky completes the picture. Tfs!
