The man in the red shirt on the punt makes a good focal point and the diagonal axis of the canal provides good dynamism and linear perspective. I like the reflections in the water. Good sharpness and lighting contrasts / density. Tfs!

A marvellous alpine view with good sharpness and amazing repetition of the ski tracks. I like the strong sidelight from the left and the long shadows. Good sharpness and a spectacular view. The skiers add scale. Merci!

Sort of looks like Victorian weather. Good choice of a vertical frame with excellent sharpness considering the longer time exposure and silky motion blur of the water. The fg grass adds depth and the natural contours of the cliffs provide lead in lines and perspective. The lighthouse at right with stairs makes a good focal point. Tfs!

Another gorgeous shot of this delightful alpine region. I like the shadowed old church on the bg hilltop and the fg cows in sunlight at right on the steep hill. Good sharpness and wonderful depth in the composition with nice color and saturation. Tfs!

Striking warm colour contrasts between the blue sky and red sculpture at right. Good sharpness and the triangular glass panes of the pyramid add distinctive repetitive patterns. The crowds in front of the building provide scale and animate the scene. Tfs!

Bonsoir, cher ami Didi,
Interesting to see the same style of carousel as I saw near the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Good blue hour shot with impeccable sharpness and nice warm cold colour contrasts between the yellow red illumination and the blue. Tfs!

I know this spot well. Looks great lit up at blue hour too! The tobacco filter has worked well here. Good sharpness and nice fg reflections in the water. The people animate the scene and add life. Well framed and composed. I hope you went to Barb's fish and chips and crab and clam chowder shack along the waterfront a little more right of the flag.

The angled pov adds both dynamism and diminishing linear perspective from left to top right. Good timing to capture the passing boat in the canal. I might have boosted brightness a little in the fg and around the bg bridge. Nice warm cold color contrasts and excellent sharpness. Tfs!

A lovely blue hour shot from Orleans with strong warm cold color contrasts between the illuminated golden architecture and the intense deep blue sky. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. No easy task with those longer exposure times! Tfs!
