    Bonjour, cher Danos,

    I seem to recall a similar sad tale in Chios. Again it was an Ottoman Invasion. The three stylised statues representing women are huge, and easily dwarf the tourist. Nice repetition and graphism of the fg seed pods on stalks. Tfs.

    Hello Bev,

    Good sharpness with the reflections in the wet sand adding nice symmetry. Excellent warm cold colour contrasts added by the red jacket being worn by the boy against the blue sky. The water looks reasonably clean too. Tfs.

    Hi Pierre.

    The rounded corners are quaint. Good back-lighting that emphasizes the graphic elements of contrasting tones. The Danish flag beside the lighthouse is a nice detail. A fine upward pov. Interesting cloud patterns in the sky. Tfs.

    Hello Sasha

    Good sharpness and the red rooftops contrast well against the blue sky. Excellent sharpness and the plastic sheeted greenhouse makes an ideal focal point. The fh tree adds depth and layering and a graphic element against the lighter toned sky. Tfs.

    Hello Burak,

    When I was there in June 2014 they had roped off the bridge pylons and had excavator machines in place. The people frolicking in the water add scale and animate the scene. Effective tight framing with good sharpness. Tfs.

    Merhaba Murat,

    It looks like the Gateway Bridge in Brisbane. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/08/GatewayBridge800.jpg

    Smart choice of a wide angled, panoramic format, with good sharpness and pastel, minimalist colours. The subtle reflections in the water are nice. Tfs.

    Witaj Mesut!

    I took some shots of graffiti in Istanbul on the steps leading up to Galata Tower in Beyoglu and some of the side alleys and streets running parallel. There is some surprisingly good street art in Turkey and I felt safe wandering around that area at blue hour. The diagonal pedestrian ramp adds good dynamism and sharpness is excellent. The 2 passers by animate the scene. The red and yellow graffiti here adds color and life although it is not especially artistic. Tfs.

    Hello Klaudio,

    The thumbnail does not do this shot justice. Upon opening it, the intricate detail at right in shadow is readily apparent. The 2 symmetrical minarets add balance to the composition. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and yellow red cream color of the mosque. Tfs.

    Olá Ana.

    Well composed using the rule of thirds with the horizon appropriately placed on the horizontal 1/3 axis. The yellow flowers contrast wonderfully against the blue sky to give a marvellous warm cold colour contrast. Excellent sharpness and saturation. Tfs.

    Bonjour Pierre,

    Nice repetition of the stone chimneys with good sharpness and natural looking colour and saturation. The splash of yellow greenery added by the trees contrasts well against the sky. The slight diagonal incline of the road adds dynamism. Tfs.

    Hi Ourania

    Superb density levels that have given good light contrasts and graphic elements, with solid blacks and clean whites. The red contrasts nicely against the white and the tilt to the left adds dynamism. The painter animates the scene and provides scale. Tfs.

    Hello Ourania,

    A superb daily life scene from the local fruit market, with good sharpness and excellent color, framing and saturation. The man's blue attire contrasts well against the red tomatoes. Punchy light contrasts and the bananas look fresh and unbruised. Tfs.

    Hello Wolfgang

    I like the angled pov showcasing 2 facades of the building. Good sharpness with excellent color, framing and saturation. The wide angled lens barrel distortion has been well managed with the verticals placed centrally. The red roofs contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hi Paul,

    I've never been to Nagano. Looks great in sakura / cherry blossom season. Good sharpness and nice reflections in the moat. The budding willow tree at left enhances the oriental look of this image. The people add scale and context. Tfs.

    Missed this one. Excellent sharpness with nice graphic elements of the sunlit facade of the building against the darker toned bg sky. I like the long shadows from the right and the fg shadow play. Good textural details in the walls. Tfs.

    Good sharpness with effective tight framing and nice symmetry offered by the 2 Union Jacks fluttering in the breeze from each support column at the front entrance. Superb graphic elements and the seagulls animate the shot. Tfs.
