    Bonjour Serge,

    Effective tight framing and good use of a shallow dof. The fg apple tree nicely frames the bg shed. Good sharpness and excellent warm vs cold color contrasts, with realistic colour and saturation. A nice blue sky that contrasts well against the rusty red roof. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen

    I am having the same problem in Budapest. Dont know whether to start shooting or come back another time when the skies are blue. A superb angled pov on this Liverpudlian landmark with good sharpness and excellent upward pov on the neoclassical building. The green moss on the stairs suggests that it rains a lot here or is damp & humid. Tfs!

    Hello Bev,

    Effective tight framing with no part of the image wasted. Fantastic warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and the red bricks. A superb angled, 3d pov with good sharpness and density levels that have given perfect light contrasts and colour saturation. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe

    This reminds me of an old communal laundry I saw in Safronbolu in Turkey. The angled pov works well here on the rectangular shape. Excellent shadow detail and sharpness with good diffused light overall. The warm reddish roof contrasts well against the blue grey hues. Tfs!

    Hi Ike
    Superb clean shot, I think we surely do look small considering the size of the cave. I love the balanced natural light you achieved, feel of depth, so much detail and your choice to go for an ISO 3200 is wise. Lovely abound of diff colours which is not over saturated and the composition certainly does compliment this photograph with nice contrast. What a cool place! you got to love when you find something new! Great capture and thks for the additional pict showing the source of light. Congrats
    Best regards

    Hi Ike
    when i think of Israel i certainly dont think of Caves! But i guess they do exist here dont they!
    Its a great subject for posting, we dont get to see very many caves on TE.
    Excellent light and exposure, looks just fine to me.
    the inside is illuminated aswell.
    nice shot
    cheers

    Hi Daniel
    now thats a church!
    really like the tiles on the ground too, that helps to add extra visual punch to the scene.

    you couldn't have asked for better or more attractive lighting conditions too.

    beautifully rustic brown door, so much to like in this subject. its a beauty

    That's the joy of summertime even on this greyish day, what a cracking depth of field and this must have been a terrific open green landscape and lucky you to have seen this glorious sight. Absolutely beautiful - sea of flowers against the setting, you pov and closeness lend this all the impact. It's well captured nicely composed. Congrats and tfs.

    Hi Burak
    gotta love this one right!
    who can resist taking photos of the Eiffel Tower.

    obviously the vertical composition was the smart choice here.

    love the statue on the right and the large clouds and sky. pretty shot

    Hi JJ
    wow, this is certainly one of those places i'd like to see in person one day.

    what a place for a walk! I hope those people have a camera in hand :)

    i know i'd have my camera with me here.
    stunning contrasts with the green grass and tall mountains.

    love the walking trail too.
    excellent colors and majestic scene

    Hi Jose
    A superb viewpoint and the freshly cleaned cream colour makes a lovely image of the cathedral which stands projected in the remarkable sunshine sets against the deep blue sky. There's plenty of detail and good sense depth to the image and inclusion of the figs is wise decision and timed adding so much live and scale. A spectacular edifice thoughtfully shot, Congrats

    Hi Neyvan
    A picturesque fjord with its unique beauty, one will never get tired seeing this. An extremely strong crisp-clean shot so well apportioned with the inviting blue water and sky grabbing all the attention in with excellent foreground interest. Love this for all the right reasons, I think you are blessed to see it and doubly blessed to capture the beauty full of vivid colours and detail, a pleasure to view full of charm. Fabs capture, Congrats.

    Hi Kasia
    Lovely that you strike a well balanced compo and the low warm light again works a treat here with superb exposure and I love the soft shadows while picking out the delicate texture of the rock formations. There's some brilliant colors and shades, it looks like u had a fun time snapping away from this view point. The balloon -being the strongest focal- renders more punch boosting the overall contrast and stands out stunningly against the setting adding good scale proportion. I think, it's just timely triggered to perfection. Awesome work, Congrats.

    A pleasant looking coastalscape brightly lit stretching off the view across the frame with the shimmering water catching the eyes and abound of good detail throughout. The backdrop increases the sense of depth, it's decently coloured with fine contrast taken from the best vantage point. Excellent photo work, Congrats.

    Hi Gert
    I love the view point and quiet close to main subject as it focuses more on his features, posture- the informal seating position, dress styles and colours while sipping his tea. Nice candid where we can see the old style of life and local culture and everyday life I believe have not changed very much and waiting to be recorded on camera. It's nice observation of character, good composition and the story it tells. Great spontaneous snap, well done.

    Hi Ike,

    I particularly like the muted colours and the subtle warm vs cold colour contrast between the lit yellow red wall at left and the shadowed blue grey interior. The tiny human figure adds scale. Good sharpness overall and excellent framing. Tfs!

    I like the lemon yellow color of the walls and ceiling in this superb interior image. Good backlight and nice reflections in the polished floor. The 3 uniformed officers make a fine focal point. Good repetition of the arches and columns at the sides. Tfs!

    Salut Jean Jacques

    I think I prefer the colour version but this is also very good. The top light has given strong shadows at the bottom. Good graphism and sharpness with a wonderful tonal range. The textural contrast between the stripes of wood and the stone or plaster is also striking. Tfs!

    Hello Gerrit,

    This peak sort of looks like Mayon volcano which was erupting and closed when I was in the Philippines some years ago. The curved road at right adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. The old stone church or mission makes a fine focal point. Tfs!
