    Bonjour Philippe,

    An excellent tonal range with good textural contrasts between the stone wood and vegetation. Superb sharpness and well framed and composed. The upward facing stairs add good lead in lines and linear perspective towards the antique shop. Tfs.

    Hello Gert,

    The open air book market makes a fine centre of interest. Good sharpness and excellent framing and composition. On the plus side the overcast skies have given you a soft diffused light with no oe or totally black shadows. The diagonal axis of the books along the long shelf adds dynamism. Tfs.

    Hi Kari,

    Wow, the desolate volcanic landscape has been well captured here. I like the small neat houses amongst the rocky black lava fields. The yellow red gravel along the river bank contrasts well against the blue sky and reflected skylight in the meandering stream. Excellent sharpness and high pov. Tfs.

    Bonjour Nicolas

    Fantastic symmetrical reflections in the tranquil water with good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. Excellent color and saturation. Effective tight framing with no part of the screen wasted. A nice warm cold color contrast between the yellow green foliage and the blue skylight reflected in the water. Tfs.

    Bonjour Nicou,

    Fantastic symmetrical reflections in the placid water with wonderful warm vs cold color contrasts between the snowcapped mountains drenched in red orange sunset colors and the blue tones in the lower ridges and water. The tree adds a graphic element of contrasting light and dark tones. Tfs.

    Hi Malgo

    Incredible repetition of the patterns formed by the neatly manicured rows of vines in the contour plughed hillsides. A wonderful high pov offering an expansive view of the green valley. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs.

    Hello Maria,

    A soft diffused light with the seated woman on the bench nicely animating the scene as well as providing a focal point. Excellent sharpness and the red geraniums at right and the pink and yellow flowers add a welcome splash of color. The opposing diagonals of the bench and the 2 rows of green windows add strength to the composition. Tfs.

    Ciao Silvio,

    A pleasant diffused light with good sharpness and soft, pastel colors. The people animate the scene and the gigantic bg torso sculpture makes an instantaneous focal point. The arched entrance is well placed over the vanishing point. Tfs.

    Hello Bev

    Some things about the 40's are nice but others not so good. I recall the early 60's in Australia when no-one had refrigerators and we had to purchase a block of ice to keep food fresh. And the outback latrines with sawdust. Yuk! And internet and cellphones were science fiction in cartoons and comics! The pastel colors suit the image here and remind me of 1960's retouching of b&w images from analogue film. Tfs.

    Hello Ike,

    I like the simple graphic elements of contrasting tones in this superbly composed shot from Portugal. The minimalist colors work well and the tight framing on the conical roofed tower is excellent. The lamp to the right compliments the scene. Tfs.

    Hi Ryszard,

    Striking warm vs cold color contrasts between the red and blue with the canal adding natural lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective towards the back. The diagonal embankment at left adds dynamism. Good sharpness and the bridge is well positioned near the vanishing point. Tfs.

    Hello Eleu,

    A simple but strong composition using the blue sky backdrop as a nice bg. Good sharpness and the backlight shining through the feathers is superb. Nice warm cold color contrasts too. The diagonal axis adds dynamsim to the compo. Tfs.
