    Hello Brian,

    It reminds me of a birthday cake with candles! Or a pincushion. The yellow cranes contrast well against the blue facades of the modern buildings at left and the blue sky. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. The little structure at right on pylons adds interest. The cable car looks like it would give a superb high point of view. Tfs!

    Hi Beverley!

    A wonderful symmetrical reflection in the placid water of the lake and you were lucky to get light winds only. A superb warm vs cold color contrast between the blue sky and water and the red brick clocktower. But where is Friar Tuck? The big tree at right with its dark green tones adds nice graphic elements against the lighter toned sky. Tfs!

    Hi Stephen

    Thin Lizzy, they ain't! Strange to see cherry blossom in Australia. I am so used to seeing it Korea and China. The giant teddy bear adds an amusing twist. Good sharpness and excellent tight framing and a vibrant street scene despite Hobart being one of the smallest capital cities. Tfs!

    Salut Nicolas,

    The yellow slide contrasts superbly against the blue grey tones and its diagonal axis adds dynamism. The patch of green grass underneath the slide devoid of snow adds interest. I like the graphic elements of the dark naked tree in the back covered in snow. The diffused light and soft muted colours work well here. Tfs!

    Ciao Malgo

    The bridge does indeed resemble a giant Irish harp. Smart choice of a vertical format to accentuate the height. Good color, sharpness and saturation. The blue sky makes a fine backdrop. Good perspective and the I like the repetition of the white struts at the bottom. Tfs!

    Hi Ruben

    A gorgeous Miami sunset and a stunning warm cold colour contrast between the upper blue sky and the lower bright orange yellow clouds and reflections on the surface of the water in Biscayne Bay. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the cloud patterns. Well exposed and the clouds have acted as a natural filter to block the worst of the harsh glare. Tfs!

    Hello Frank

    A superb downward pov from this elevated vantage point with good sharpness and natural looking colour. The curving and zig zagging shoreline at bottom right nicely leads the eye around to the top left. The red roof tops contrast well against the blue water. The bg palm trees add a subtropical mood. The diagonal sweep of the road adds dynamism. Tfs!

    Hello Aleksander

    The cool refreshing breezes from the water in summer might be nice but I would worry about flooding living so close to the water. I like the muted colours and superb sharpness. The bright yellow green triangle in the corner contrasts well against the muted colors predominating throughout the rest of the image. Tfs!

    Bonjour JJ ,

    The bright blue door at left is an eye-catching focal point. It is counterbalanced at right by the bright blue window and the array of flowers spilling down from the window. Good sharpness and the neutral pale reddish brown grey colour of the wall sets off the colors superbly. Good textural and tonal details with the cemented flat and curved stones reminiscent of an Inca construction! Tfs!

    Hello Burak

    I haven't yet been to Lesvos but this wedding cake tiered church sure looks different and unusual. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. I like the soft pastel colours. The pale red roof of the tower at right contrasts well against the grey blue sky. Good repetition of the arched windows. Tfs!

    Good evening Sasha,

    A superb Christmas card landscape all covered in snow. Good sharpness and excellent tonal range and colour saturation. I like the minimalist color and soft muted colours. This could easily pass as a black and white image. A homemade water distribution system is always better than no system at all! Tfs!

    Bonjour Neyvan

    You were much luckier with the weather than I. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. The yellow green vegetation contrasts superbly against the blue water and sky. The jagged bg peaks make a magnificent backdrop. Nice repetition of the moored fishing boats along the shoreline at left. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre,

    Toronto recently passed Chicago as North America's third largest city after NYC & LA. Good sharpness and the promenade at right along the lake shoreline adds superb lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and the city is nicely positioned at the vanishing point. The 2000 foot + tower makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Ryszard,

    Apart form a few days after Christmas when it was super cold (-21c) it has been around zero for the past 2 or 3 weeks. So little or no snow. Good choice of a vertical format with excellent sharpness and dual snowy wheel tracks add good lead in lines and linear perspective. The dark tree trunks add a nice graphic element. Tfs!

    Hello Piotr,

    A striking warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and the reddish yellow tints on the sunlit hill at right. The fog and cloud impart mood mystery and atmosphere. Good sharpness and excellent tight framing. Superb fg shadow detail in the shaded spur, and its diagonal axis adds dynamism. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio,

    A good high pov overlooking this verdant valley and the fg chapel makes a fine focal point. I like the spur at the top leading the eye away to the top right. And the nearer fg spur leading to the left. Realistic color with a soft diffused light. Could be a fraction sharper. Tfs!

    Hi Ike,

    The hilltop castle perched atop the rocky outcrop is a perfect focal point in this image. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. Good side-lighting and nice to see so much green foliage. It disappears at winter time so I miss the green colors of Spring and Summer. A good upward pov. Tfs!
