    Hello Gert.

    Wonderful repetition of the piano like facade of the bg buildings vertical windows, the round green trees in 2 layers, and the fg people. Good sharpness and realistic looking color. The steel lamppost nicely breaks the repetitive patterns. Tfs!

    Hi Mike,

    I love the crystal clear clarity and transparency of the lake. Good sharpness and a nice warm cold color contrast between the orange pink tinged sunset clouds and the blue water and skylight. A splendid symmetrical reflection of the lone jagged peak. Tfs!

    The sweeping curve of the large fountain directs the eye nicely right around the lake. Good density levels that have provided punchy light contrasts and splendid saturation. Good reflections and a peaceful mood captured here superbly. Tfs!

    A superb aerial shot with good sharpness and excellent contrasts in the patterns and hues of the fields below. They seem more lush at left than right. Pnchy light contrasts and superb colour and saturation. The diagonal road at top adds dynamism. Tfs!

    A good decisive moment capturing the horses fighting. Excellent sharpness and the cloud of dust helps animate the scene. Nice repetition of the Joshua like trees. Good warm cold color contrasts between the dusty arid yellow red desert and the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Asa

    The curving cobblestone road adds fantastic lead in lines. Nice warm cold colour contrasts between the blue grey and yellow colours. The people add scale and animate the scene. The arch through the bg building reminds me of the old 'rathaus' in Munich! Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    I like the wide angled, panoramic format on the yacht harbor. Nice repetition of the boats and the high rise bg buildings add depth. Lots of boats! It would be like trying to park a car in a crowded supermarket carpark! Hope the mooring fees are not outrageous! Tfs!

    Witaj Berek!

    Maybe I should post some snow pics from Erzurum? This looks cold. Really cold. The curving river of ice adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Excellent graphism, a good high pov (presumably on a bridge), and I like the minimalist color. Tfs!

    Guten tag Wolfgang,

    Can I make a reservation at this pool after you finish? Looks wonderful and protected from the rough water behind. The water is so clear it is easy to spot any sea urchins. The turquoise colour is nice. Good textural details. Tfs!

    Good symmetrical reflections with excellent colour saturation and sharpness. The yellow fishing boat with attendant crowd makes a fine focal point. The hot colors of red orange and yellow contrast well against the blue sea. Nice reflections in the wet sand. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo,

    The dark abandoned pier makes a fine photographic subject and the shallow fg dof adds interest. The birds animate the scene, and sharpness and colour saturation are excellent. A subtle warm cold color contrast between the blue grey and yellow seaweed on the beach. Tfs!

    Bonjour Malgorzata,

    A good upward pov with the people descending the stairs animating the superb interior shot of the impressive architecture and artwork. Good sharpness and I found out something about the bg statue from Wiki: "Theseus Defeats the Centaur by Antonio Canova (1804–1819), Kunsthistorisches Museum" Tfs!

    Hello Serge,

    Punchy light contrasts yet still with good shadow detail. Well composed with the arch starting in the bottom right and adding dynamism. The top leaves add a good graphic element, depth and mask a white area of sky. Merci!
