    Cześć Piogtrze

    The lonely small bitumen road adds good lead in lines towards the bg stream and valley. A mountainous and picturesque part of SLvakia I have yet to visit along with Zakapone on the Polish side, equally attractive to me. Good sharpness with a pleasant diffused light. Tfs.

    Bonjour Jean

    The fg trees add a welcome splash of greenery and the tall bg belltower looms gracefully over the old town. Good sharpness color and saturation. I like the warm cold color contrast between the red roofs and blue sky. Tfs.

    Hello Brenda,

    The fg building dwarfs the yellow taxis parked in front, but the 2 tall skyscrapers in the bg take the dwarfing to new heights (pun intended). Good sharpness and a nice contrast between the old and the new. Tfs.

    Bonjour Delphine,

    I at first thought the white flowers were sheep judging from the thumbnail. They add depth and their lighter tones contrast well against the darker tones of the green grass. The people add scale and animate the scene. Excellent sharpness throughout. The clear blue sky makes a great backdrop. Tfs.

    Hello Bev

    Good sharpness and the fg tree anchors the shot and makes a fine focal point before the ye catches the lovely reflections in the water and looking a little more closely, the white swans. The reflected blue skylight contrasts well against the yellow green vegetation. Tfs.

    For sure Lisbon has some stunning artwork scattered throughout the city, even on the metro platforms underground, with each stations art distinct from others. Effective tight framing, good sharpness and vibrant color with excellent saturation. Tfs.

    Nice motion blur from the long time exposure on the water that has given a soft a silky look. Good sharpness elsewhere and a wonderful warm cold color contrast between the faint orange-pink sunset colors and the predominant blue tones. Tfs.

    Hello Nicolas,

    The piles of stone sculpture reminds me of a Mongolian custom of placing a stone atop a pile before embarking on a long voyage to bring good luck and a safe passage across the desert sands and rocky, arid terrain. Nice reflections and a fine zen mood. Tfs.
