    Hi Malgo

    The red and yellow Spanish flag looks great against the blue sky backdrop. Good that you caught it almost fully extended in the breeze too. An imposing bank building with the arch over the street adding interest. Tfs!

    Missed this one. The yellow flowers contrast splendidly against the blue sky. Good use of a shallow dof with only the mid distance and horizon line in sharp focus. Nice repetition of the rapeseed flowers. Well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    The sunlit yellow green grass and bg vines contrast wonderfully against the bg blue sky. Excellent framing and sharpness with superb repetition of the trellises. The snow capped peak at top left provides a majestic backdrop. Tfs!

    Hi Ike

    I don't think I have ever been on a Cathay Pacific flight. I used Thai airways and Emirates to get in and out of Hong Kong which I believe is this airlines base. Good sharpness and a fine upward pov on the undercarriage. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio

    I like the subtle perspective added by the rows of cultivated fields with their lines converging towards the back. Good sharpness and density levels. The yellow and apricot colours of the buildings contrast well with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Nice repetition of the colourful flags and striped outdoor market shelters. Good sharpness and the people animate the scene and provide scale and context. The diagonal of the posts and street add dynamism and perspective. Tfs!

    Marvellous warm cold color contrast between the orange red and blue, with good sharpness and lighting contrasts that add a strong graphic element. The curving flagstone street adds good lead in lines and perspective. Merci pour ce partage.

    Hi Lars

    I only spent an hour in Brighton in 2013 and remember the great donuts and Indian style Royal Pavilion plus this pier. I had a bus back to London for a connecting trip to Amsterdam at 9:30 pm so regrettably I could not stay longer. Tfs!

    Hello Luciano,

    Perfect density levels with good sharpness and the dual sides of the stream add natural perspective. I also would not have noticed the swan's nest without the note. Great that they have moved in. Lets hope that there are no stray cats to annoy them. TFs!

    Reminds me a little of the Goodwill Bridge in Brisbane

    Hello Rob,

    Lol! In the 1920's anything that wasn't neck to knee was considered risque. Even for men! Remember that the bikini was still just a distant idea in the future. Nice that they kept this retro area so we can reminisce about the good old days! Even today, many beach-goers in the States are somewhat prudish compared to Europe and Australia. Tfs!

    Dag Benny,

    The vignetting adds mood to the shot and the strong diagonal of the stream provides dynamism. I also like the motion blurred water and the tonal contrasts between the brighter stream & darker surrounding forest and banks of the stream. Plus the warm cold color contrast between the blue grey water and yellow green backdrop. Tfs!
