    Hi Ann,

    Looks like a futuristic film set for a movie like Alien! Good sharpness and tonal range in this superb black and white image. The diminishing linear perspective is excellent. Nice repetition of patterns and shapes. Tfs.

    Hello Alexandre,

    A good close up shot of the Pilsener beer. I am in the Czech Republic at the moment and can vouch that Czech beer is very good. This looks like a scene from outback Australia! Good color and sharpness with excellent saturation. Tfs.

    Hello Stephen,

    A nice reverent moment captured here with good sharpness and a wonderful golden colour and light throughout. The people bowed in contemplation animate the scene and provide context. The fg passageway or aisle adds deep lead in lines and perspective. Tfs.

    The distant red sailboat near the horizon sets up a superb warm vs cold colour contrast against the blue sky. Good sharpness and nice reflections in the water. Amazing repetition of the seagulls and the fg seaweed covered layer of rocks adds depth. Tfs.

    A relaxing scene at the lake with an incredible deep turquoise color and the close up wide angled view providing agreeable distortion. Good sharpness and the fg highlights help to retain the viewers interest in & around the fg. Tfs,

    Effective tight framing with punchy light contrasts & good sharpness. Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and pale cream yellow text and red earth. Good textural retails in the weathered cliff. Tfs.

    Hello Danos,

    The snow capped mountains make a majestic backdrop. Good sharpness and excellent flattened perspective from the zoom making the mountains look much closer and more compressed than they really are. I like the natural looking pastel colors and superb sharpness. Tfs.

    Another vote for the no flash, which I rarely use. Good close up shot of the Cuban dancers with wonderful sharpness and excellent use of a shallow dof. The smiles look authentic and not contrived. Tfs.

    Hi Piotr,

    A good close up shot of the building with a nice upward pov and low shooting angle. I like the 3 leaf clover like designs and the superb warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and red brick. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs.

    Hello Didi,

    The dark spire of the church adds a fine graphic element against the lighter tones of the blue sky. The flowering trees with their pink red blooms contrast well against the sky and they are evenly spaced at left and centre. Tfs.

    Hello Dwaipan,

    The road at right adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. A marvellous blue sky indicative of the high altitude. Perhaps a slight rotation to the left? The clouds are well positioned over the vanishing point. Tfs.

    Smart choice of a vertical format with nice reflections in the fg table. The artwork depicted is superb. A pleasant diffused light with effective tight framing excluding much of the distracting light fixtures at the top. Nice warm cold color contrasts. Tfs.

    This religious art reminds me very much of Bucavina in northern Romania. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts with vibrant, saturated color and effective tight framing. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue. Tfs.

    Looks a little like a good painting. Excellent soft diffused light with good sharpness and a nice warm cold color contrast between the tobacco like filtered sky in sepia brown and the cooler hues in the fg path at left. Tfs.

    Hello Bev,

    The dark, shadowed fg arch very nicely frames the colorful, sunlit gardens with tulips at the back. Good sharpness and good repetition of the angled, buttressed wall supports. The central gap adds excellent lead in lines and perspective leading the eye towards the back. Tfs.

    Hello Ike,

    At first I thought that this was taken in Venice so it was a nice surprise to discover it was in fact shot in Portugal. The red and yellow tones of the gondola like boats contrast well against the blue reflected skylight in the water. Good sharpness and well composed. Tfs.

    Hi Aleksander

    A well composed shot nicely using the rule of thirds with both the vertical and horizontal planes delineated into an almost perfect set of 9 squares within a single rectangle. Good sharpness and the red roofs contrast well against the cooler blue and grey hues. Tfs.

    Hello Mesut

    If I ever go back here I will visit the stadium which I skipped to ensure I had enough time to get back to the tour bus from Pamukkale before it left. The angled pov and diffused light work well here. Good sharpness and the paths add nice lead in lines. Tfs.

    Hello Miguel,

    The dark volcanic rocks jutting out of the sea add a good graphic element against the lighter tones of the sea and sky. Good sharpness and enough motion blur of the water to convey the power of the sea. The still tidal pool at far right contrasts well against the white water and surf. Tfs.
