    Hello Paul,

    I like the downward pov and the colorful costumes that the women are wearing, reminiscent of West Africa. The bowl of tropical fruit adds interest. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo.

    I took a photo at the same fish market! A superb daily life scene with lots to look at. Good sharpness, color and saturation. I might have used a higher dof / fstop. I like the angled pov on the trays. Tfs!

    Hello, Wolfgang!

    I do hope global warming does not damage these beautiful reefs as it has in other parts of the globe with bleaching. The blue lipped clam and the pink coral make a great warm cold color contrast. Nice transparency of the clear water. Tfs!

    Hello Angel,

    Fantastic shadow detail in the fg with excellent sharpness and superb color and saturation. I like the angled pov showing 2 facades where the street twists right in the distance. Tfs!

    hello Lars,

    Perspective in this wide angled shot of the NYC skyline has been well managed by placing the vertical line centrally. The winged sculpture in the fg adds interest and the fg memorial cascades add a poignant touch to where the twin WTC towers once stood. Tfs!

    Hello Mariusz,

    The square looks like it could use a mop and bucket. The situation for everyone in Turkey is becoming more untenable. Except for Erdogan who has a finger in every pie. But enough of politics. I enjoyed my 3 days in Kotor. The arch makes a great frame. Tfs!

    I like the repetition of the rocky, indented headlands and coastline in the distance. The arch in the fg makes an ideal frame. Good warm cold color contrasts. Tfs!

    I like the red kayak mounted atop the roofrack of the fg car. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. Perhaps a bit more space above the cross at the top? Tfs!

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    A good angled pov on the church with excellent sharpness and a nice blue sky backdrop. The red brick cathedral sets up a fine warm cold color contrast. I like the row of fg trees along the side of the church. Tfs!

    A good exposure on the bright white highlights of the snow and the blue sky makes a superb backdrop. Good sharpness and fg shadow play. The orange red facade of the chalet contrasts well with the blue tones. Tfs!

    Bonjour, mon ami Jean,

    We get both of these starfish in Australia, the one at left in Moreton Bay off Brisbane and the blue one further north on the outer Greta Barrier Reef. A nice comparison shot of the 2 images. Tfs!

    Looks a little like the Canadian Rockies. Wonderful fg reflections in the mirror like lake with punchy light contrasts and good density levels. The yellow green foliage and blue skylight make for a splendid warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

    No argument at all from me about Dubrovnik. Spent a wonderful few days there last year. Mind you I didn't have a car to worry about! The red roofs contrast well against the blue sea and sky. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen,

    I had my eye on a stopover in this town between Munich and Prague but in the end I opted for an express train trip. Maybe next year? So fortunate that this town was spared the wreckage of Dresden, Hamburg, Warsaw, Rotterdam and many other European cities. Tfs!

    Superb back lighting and wonderful use of the tightly clustered trees and branches to act as a natural starburst filter. Good sharpness and nice repetition of patterns and shapes. I like the dark partly silhouetted tree trunks. Tfs!

    The octagonal shape of the building is very unusual. Good sharpness & a superb warm cold color contrast between the blue sky & red painted wooden sides of the building. The fg green grass & shadow play add interest. Tfs!
