Surprising to see that such a little known city has such a big central business district with a forest of highrise buildings. Good sharpness and superb reflections. The yacht at right makes a good focal point and its rust red color contrasts well against the blue sky and water. Tfs.

A superb aerial shot of the picturesque shoreline of the lake with good sharpness. The meandering blue stream at left provides nice lead in lines and its overall diagonal axis provides dynamic lead in lines. Tfs.
Galerie Bordelaise by snunney (88465)

Nice repetition of the chairs and the main path with its dual converging lines either side provides strong lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective towards the back. Excellent sharpness and a soft diffused light. I like the reflection at the back in the shiny floor. Tfs.

I like the downward curve of the brick wall at left, and its shadowed outline provides a good graphic element against the brightly lit bg. Good sharpness and excellent saturation. The sea of red rooftops contrast well against the blue sky. A good exposure on the white highlights of the clouds. Tfs.
There will be a court by Graal (99510)

The singular strong vertical of the central high rise building under construction contrasts well against the predominant horizontal lines. Good sharpness. I might have blurred the pixellated sky and reduced saturation a little. I like the expansive high pov. Tfs.
Seudre river by jemaflor (88237)

Well framed and composed with the horizon line well placed away from the centre. The fg grasses add depth and layering and the red roof of the house at right contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Nice reflections in the water and the big fishing boat at left counterbalances the house at right. Tfs.
Blue hour on the Yarkon river by ikeharel (61549)
ChrisJ (102893) 2015-07-04 5:33
One that I spotted in your gallery, and a superb blue hour shot it is, too. Magnificent reflections in the limpid water with good sharpness and nice repetition of the bg highrise buildings. The yellow star of the streetlamp at left is well positioned near the vertical 1/3 axis. Tfs.
La Poesia di Castelluccio by Silvio1953 (128528)
ChrisJ (102893) 2015-07-04 5:28
A simple composition but highly effective. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with the mother and child at right providing scale and animating the scene. I like the high pov and the incredible repetition of the yellow flowering fields of canola mustard or rapeseed flowers. I am not a botanist so cannot tell the difference :-( Tfs.
Nature's 4th Of July Celebration! by eldancer1 (30873)

Good idea to make people ignoring safety warnings to pay for the inconvenience to rescue workers. A superb decisive moment shot of the forked lightning with good sharpness and excellent graphism with minimalist colors. Tfs.
Palacio de la Artesanía by lousat (81158)

The architecture looks almost Islamic in design. A superb high pov with good use of the pillars either side to frame the scene and impeccable sharpness. The angled pathway adds deep lead in lines and perspective and the man provides scale and animates the scene. Tfs.
