    Hello Silvio

    The fog adds mood, mystery and atmosphere. I like the soft diffused light and minimalist colors. The tower at the apex of the hilltop village makes a fine focal point. The distant snowcapped peaks provide a sublime backdrop. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. A subtle warm cold color contrast between the pale yellow and blue grey hues. Tfs.

    Hello Rosemary,

    The salmon pink color of the salt lake is striking and contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and a nice exposure on the highly reflective salt. The road at right adds deep lead in lines and perspective and the vehicle makes a fine focal point. Nice repetition of the patterns formed by the dried salt. Tfs.

    Hello Serge,

    A good juxtaposing of the yellow artificial flower sculptures against the blue sky that gives a pleasing warm vs cold color contrast. The green lighting within the bg highrise buildings also mirrors the green stems of the flowers. Good sharpness and saturation. Nice repetition of patterns and shapes also. Tfs.

    Hello Nicolas

    A stunning image of the vineyards all covered in snow with amazing repetition of the patterns formed by the terraces and vines. I like the minimalist color and the high pov overlooking the snow covered slopes. Good graphic elements of light vs dark tones too. Tfs.

    Bonsoir Pierre,

    The fg tour crowds add depth and contrast well against the vaguely Indian or Turkish looking tapestry with the elephants. Good warm cold colour contrasts between the red and blue with excellent sharpness. The blue hues in the fg attire of the people enhance the warm cold color contrast. Tfs.

    Hi Ike

    The fg red sails structure sets up a nice warm cold colour contrast against the bg blue sky. It also contrasts well against its complimentary opposite colour of cyan in the bg highrise buildings facade. Good sharpness, colours and saturation. I like the repetition of the vertical white poles. Tfs.

    Hi Sasha,

    A superb daily life scene with good sharpness and vibrant colour. The fg sheep and goats on the road add a rustic charm to the image and the bg monastery looks intriguing. The diagonal road adds both dynamism and strong lead in lines and perspective. Tfs.

    Hello Bev,

    Nice repetition of patterns and shapes as well, with the zig zag patterns and squares formed by the steel grate standing put. Good warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and the yellow and red colors of the slide. And even within the wood components of the structure itself, there are further, natural patterns. Tfs.

    Hello Maciej,

    Effective tight framing on the window with good sharpness and a wonderful warm vs cold color contrast between the blue sky and the yellow facade of the building. I like the subtle reflections in the window. Excellent saturation and the red tiles at the top enhance the color contrasts. Tfs.

    Hola Manu

    I like the positive words of the text. My translation might not be perfect but I am reading it as something along the lines of another world is possible. The bright yellow trombone contrasts well against the green shirts of the 2 musicians at left. The man with the green and yellow hat is color coordinated with the rest of the image too! Good sharpness and nice use of a shallow dof. Tfs.

    Hello Christiane,

    Interesting to this unusual geological formation in Switzerland as well. I have seen them also at Cappadocia in Turkey as well as in Canada and the US. The road arch and tunnel at right add interest to this shot. Good sharpness and realistic looking colour. Nice graphic elements of the dark shadows of the tunnel against the lighter bg snow. Tfs.

    Hello Malgo,

    The mural is certainly huge. Good sharpness and attractive warm colors of yellow and red that contrast superbly against the blue tones. The people at left add scale. Excellent saturation and a nice contrast in the lower part where the paint has peeled away and flaked off and the upper part which is still in good condition. The man with the blue jeans and yellow cane compliments the scene. Tfs.

    Hello Burak,

    Aptly titled with the focus on just the city. A superb high pov with good sharpness and color. Amazing repetition of the parabolas and satellite dishes. The yellow building at right stands out from the rest and nicely breaks the pattern. Good sharpness and tight framing. Tfs.

    Hello Malgo,

    It looks like the painted hills of Oregon or the colored sands of Teewah / Rainbow Beach in Australia. A striking warm vs cold color contrast between the intense blue sky and the red orange rocks, with the layers contorted over time into fantastic banded shapes. The fg trees add scale. Tfs.

    Hello Roger,

    The colorful tulip flowers add a bright splash of color and the quality is exceptionally good for an image taken in 1958. Good sharpness and well composed with the horizon placed on the 1/3 horizontal axis. The Dutch tricolor flag at far right adds place and context. Tfs.

    There is a kind of symmetry between the man passing in the fg and the bg portrait of the dignitary. The elaborate and ornate frame of the painting is striking. A little oe in the top right of the frame though. Good sharpness and color. Tfs.

    Witaj Piotr,

    A wonderful warm vs cold color contrast between the reddish hued mountain top in full sunlight against the grey blue sky. I like the flattened perspective from the zoom. Good sharpness and saturation. The dual diagonal lines add dynamism. I like the layering into 3 here too. Tfs.

    Good sharpness with fantastic warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the yellow red facades of the orthodox church. The snow enhances the graphic elements. Perspective has been well managed with no sign of lens barrel distortion. Plenty of breathing space right around in this well composed shot. Tfs.

    Ciao Luciano

    Still too cold in Moldova to consider swimming (1-10c) so this tropical beach scene is the stuff of dreams. Good sharpness and the coconut palms add nice repetitive elements. Excellent sharpness and superb color and saturation. The yellow red sand contrasts well against the blue sea and sky. The blue and white church is worth a photo in its own right. Tfs.
