    Hi Jason
    what the hell????????????????????
    I thought I had already wrote a critique on this one!
    crap...sorry dude!

    I know you've never been to Vancouver, but we have an almost exact same set up in winter for a light show like this one.

    its funny to see the Palm trees in the bg, kinda ruins the Xmas spirit haha...
    I once celebrated Xmas with my family in Florida (family live there) and it was the WEIRDEST experience i've ever had in my life!!!!

    Xmas in summer-like-heat??????????? it was like living in a twilight episode or something lol

    cool shot, cool colors,
    Hope to see you back here soon. i'm enjoying all your bw on fb too.

    we leave for India Feb 17th!
    cheers

    Hi Ann
    umm...did you somehow steal this from my personal gallery on my laptop? what's going on here? haha
    this is SO much in my style of photography!

    you know i'm going to love this one :)

    I like that you added in the home on the left and telephone pole and its wires, i guess its a hint that at some point in history there were people and activity here.

    Looking at it, I want to grab some paint myself haha
    excellent low pov with the fender upfront and in our face.

    I am CONSTANTLY on the look-out for these scenes.
    beauty!

    Hi Noel
    I remember you saying many times that its hard for you to capture 'modern' types of architecture and sky scrapers in your local region...what about this one!
    this works!

    gotta love those yellow horizontal pieces, they work as excellent focal points don't you think?

    and when you can combine yellows and blues, its always a hit.

    love the tight crop and compo too.
    awesome

    Hi Brian
    yup...here we go again!
    can't get enough of this spot.
    the fg is just as attractive as the bg areas.

    I want to attend this College just so I can take my camera here everyday! haha

    wicked shot.
    so much in the way of details and colors.

    Hi Russ
    Yes, I agree 100% about your decision to change this to black and white, it suits the mood much better.

    its a sad but true story of life, and it'll be interesting to see how this exact same location looks in a year or two from now.

    excellent post, an emotional post for sure.

    Hi Stephen.

    The red French icebreaker vessel contrasts well against the blue sky. I guess this is part of the Antarctic research ensemble. The angled pov on the ship adds both dynamism and diminishing linear perspective. The blue stripe within the ship itself enlivens the warm cold colour coontrast. Interesting to see what looks like the Chile flag along with the French tricolor and the Australian flag with the Union Jack in the top left corner. Tfs!

    Hello Bev,

    Looks like this big granite boulder has been carved into centuries or even thousands of years ago in prehistoric times. The man at right adds scale. The man made construction at far right in the distance is roughly the same color hue as the rock. The blue sky makes a great backdrop. Tfs!

    Hi Satya

    A fantastic daily life scene from the local fruit market with good sharpness and superb shadow detail. I like the woman shopper at left carefully examining the fruit for flaws and imperfections. The green bananas in the bg add interest. Are they used in local cooking? The sunlit section in the =mid distances enlivens the tonal range. Tfs!

    Hi Danos,

    The aquamarine and turquoise colours in the water are lovely. Good sharpness and a marvellous blue sky backdrop. I like the hilltop village in red stone. Nice repetition of the boats along the foreshore. Excellent saturation. the V shaped tongue of land at left features prominently and adds a graphic element agaisnt the lighter sky. Tfs!

    Hi JJ
    I think we've seen this type of photo from you before, and i've enjoyed all of them.

    funny how the lighting in the water is much better exposed, its always the case in these shots.

    Hello Burak,

    The performers red shirt contrasts well against the bg blue sky to give a pleasing warm vs cold colour contrast. A superb upward pov with impeccable sharpness. Good to have the greenery of the trees at the bottom and not obscuring the man on the highwire. Excellent graphic qualities of the dark wires and poles against the lighter sky. Tfs!

    Hi Stephen
    you know i'm going to enjoy this one!
    anytime you can show me some architecture in a long perspective like this it's going to attract me.

    elegant and sophisticated for sure.
    I wonder how much they sell for.

    fun and different street shot from Australia.

    Hi Omid,

    The graceful fg white arch frmes the bg room nicely. Good sharpness and a clean and tidy housekeeper! Nice repetition of the home library shelf books. Good color and the small details like the clock on the wall, the ceiling fan & the suspended lightbulbs add interest. Tfs!

    love these shots of your home town.
    that little house on the far right is quite charming.
    the white stone is a sweet compliment to the scene.

    excellent clouds coverage, and the blue and green colors are a fine combination. sweet post

    Hi Craig,

    It was good of Deniz to show you around. The mosque on the horizon at far right adds place and context. Good sharpness and the bright cheerful colours of the boat contrast starkly against the dull grey sky and its reflection in the water. The trash rack float adds interest. I saw a nifty scooping machine in the Bosporus that sucks up all the floating debris in the water and spits out the jellyfish! Tfs!

    Hi Malgo,

    A stunning view of the Rio are coastline. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. One way to cut the haze is to reduce brightness, increase constrast, and boost the saturation. The fg vegetation adds depth as well as framing the scene nicely. The sheltered cove and beach at right looks lovely. Stay cool in the southern summer! Tfs!

    Hello Piotr

    I like the silhouetted pine trees in the mid distance. Their dark forms add a wonderful graphic element against the lighter slopes of the bg mountains. good sharpness and the warm orange glow in the sky top right contrasts well against the predominant grey blue tones to give a nice warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    I like the muted, pastel colours and interesting rustic building partly submerged in the ground with the stone walls and grass covered roof showing. The dried yellow vegetation in the bottom left corner contrasts well against the grey blue sky. I might have cropped a little of the sky to get a 1/3 ratio. Tfs!
