    Witaj Piotr,

    A magnificent view of Kotor from the lookout. Good sharpness and I see you were unlucky with the cruise ships. The type of people that use them tend to be arrogant and self centred. I nearly got run over in the adjacent carpark by someone who had hired a car to sightsee around the old town. Why they need a car to walk 2-3 km I don't know. Locals don't care much for them either as they tend not to spend as everything is included in the price of the cruise. Tfs.

    Ciao Carlo

    I like the symmetry of the 2 trios of arches bookending the shot either side. Perspective has been well managed placing the vertical lines centrally. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Wonderful symmetrical reflections with good sharpness and fantastic warm cold color contrasts between the blue and gold. The people add scale and animate the scene. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen,

    I like the blue skylight reflection in the top left window. Good sharpness and perspective. Punchy light contrasts and the woman with her shopping is well placed in the frame. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre,

    Effective tight framing with the 3 clumps of trees in the fg adding depth and layering to the composition as well as softening the hard outlines of the bg red brick building. Tfs!

    Missed this one. I like the horizontal banding and tight framing on these windows with their distinctive security mesh screens. Good color and saturations and perspective has been well managed. The lower floor allows a glimpse inside. Tfs!

    Good sharpness and perspective with the tram tracks leading the eye deep into the image towards the back. Excellent color and saturation and the post processing has given this image the look of a painting. Tfs!

    Hi Swapan,

    A superb study of light and shade with marvellous symmetrical reflections in the fg water. Good sharpness and minimalist color reminiscent of a sepia tone. The fg caravan of camel riders provides an excellent focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Craig

    Good choice of a vertical frame and the 2 people at the bottom are essential for scale. I like the zig zag pattern of the curves. Excellent sharpness and bleak colors apart from the green. Tfs!

    Hi Brenda

    30 years ago there were over 50 media outlets in the US but today that is down to just 6. That can't be good for competition or impartiality in news reporting. Anyway the man with the impassive stare provides a good focal point. Tfs!

    It's a wonder the seagulls don't get territorial and scare the pigeons away! Nice repetition of the moored boats with good sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    The modern glass facades of the apartment blocks make a striking contrast to the weathered stone construction in the central city. The green parkland in the fg adds depth. Tfs!

    Dag Lars,

    Apparently there is a fantastic observation deck on the top floor of the Shard offering a breath taking view of London, but this is also an impressive shot concentrating on the distorted reflection. Tfs!

    I am sure young children would love to run up and down the spiral staircase, providing the gate at the bottom is not locked. The small conical shaped shed at the bottom adds interest. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    The backlight has been well managed and the shadow detail on the bird is superb. The Stars & Stripes oof in the bg make a patriotic backdrop. It could also be interpreted that under the waning power of the US, the bald Eagle has been replaced with a pigeon. Love it or hate it, Putin is consistently rated as the most powerful man in the world for the past few years & 33% of Americans would have voted for him over Trump. At least he has proven experience in running a big country. Politics aside, its a good shot. Tfs!
