Athens is certainly worth a day or 2 and I recall getting a shot of the distant Temple of Olympian Zeus depicted here. Unfortunately it was closed at 8pm. I was hoping to get a shot of its silhouetted columns framing the Acropolis at sunset. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Tfs.

A good upward pov on the castle and fort with excellent sharpness and a nice multiple splash of purple added by the flowering trees. The cool blue cyan colours of the sky contrast well against the yellow green vegetation at right. Good colour and saturation. Tfs.

Fantastic use of a shallow dof with good sharpness on the fg calf and grass. Excellent graphic elements with the brightly lit fg contrasting well against the shadowed bg. We also have annual agricultural shows in Australia but with increasingly overpriced costs rising every year it's been a while since I went. http://www.ekka.com.au/ Tfs.

Wow! Missed this one. Spectacular repetition of the sunflowers and the pp effects give this image the look of a painting. Excellent warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue and yellow hues. Punchy light contrasts and the tower at right makes a fine focal point. Tfs.

I like the minimalist color and the graphic elements in this image of contrasting tones and shades of dark and light. Good sharpness and terrific artistic pp work on the sky with a watercolour effect. Informative accompanying notes and the solitary old woman animates the shot. Tfs.

The dual diagonal airport runways add good dynamism to the scene and some perspective as well. The snow capped peaks make a majestic backdrop and sharpness and saturation are superb. The fg flowering white almond or apricot trees add depth. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs.
Sunset Surfers by Royaldevon (31193)

Missed this one. A little dark overall but the mood and atmosphere are fantastic. I like the repetition of the sailboards or dinghies as they are called in the UK. Good colour and sharpness. I like the reflected sheen of sunlight off the surface of the water. Tfs.
Camping de luxe by Sergiom (62832)

Looks like a continuation on the bathing boxes theme common in the UK and Australia. Only here its the holiday cottages that are multi colored. Good sharpness and saturation with nice repetition of the shapes and patterns formed by the cottages. Tfs.

Good sharpness and a fine upward pov showing 2 facades of the ornate old church building. The blue sky makes a fine backdrop. The red prism shaped roof at left contrasts well against the blue sky. Perspective has been well managed placing the vertical lines centrally. Tfs.

A superb n&b shot with good sharpness and tonal range. The bg cathedral atop the hill makes a fine focal point. Good density levels that have given crisp clean whites and solid blacks. The fg couple animate the scene. And the way their bodies merge into a cartoon like character is amusing. Tfs.
