    Hi Daniel

    A nice minimalist shot with good textural details in the blue bg wall which contrasts so well against the bright yellow flowers of Spring. Excellent sharpness and the weathered lighter blue framed window enhances the scene. Tfs!

    Hi Rosemary,

    A lovely deserted beach for a long walk with time to contemplate and reflect. Good sharpness and superb warm vs cold color contrasts between the reddish yellow sand and the blue sea and sky. I like the v shaped gutters in the sand formed by the receding waves as the tide went out. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe

    An extraordinary garden indeed! Good colour, sharpness and saturation. The repetition of the statues is amazing and I am half expecting to see an old Macdonald statue somewhere amongst all the ducks, chickens swans, rabbits and lambs! Tfs!

    Hi Bev

    A superb b&w image and a fine upward pov over the castle. Good sharpness and tonal range with excellent lighting contrasts and nice graphic elements. I like the angled pov and repetition of the 3 circular watchtowers. Have a nice week!

    Hi Steven!

    The wide angled, panoramic format works well here and I like the high pov. The dead trees and logs along the shoreline add interest and hint of some long distant disaster. The curving shoreline adds good lead in lines and the yacht makes a good focal point. The red roofs contrast well agaisnt the blue water at right. Tfs!

    Hola Pili,

    I spent a few days in Lisbon so this sight is familiar although it wasn't foggy when I was there. Simple minimalist composition here that works well with just the bridge and Christ statue. Good sharpness and minimalist colours also. Tfs!

    Bonjour, cher Aleksander,

    Looks cold and no wonder they want a little warmth from the impromptu camp fire. The people add scale and their thick winter attire reinforces the impression of cold. Good sharpness and the icy fg textures are well shown. Tfs !

    Hello Fabiano,

    Good sharpness and a superb high pov overlooking this gloriously white and near deserted beach. Good warm cold color contrasts between the blue sea and the reddish yellow sand. The diagonal shoreline adds both dynamism and linear perspective tapering off towards the harbor top right. Tfs!

    The rust orange red facade of the building at left contrasts well against the blue sky ant the ornate decorations on the cathedral are amazing. Good sharpness & smart choice of a vertical frame to emphasise the height. Tfs!

    The red facade of the building at left and the burgundy trim of the riverboat at right contrast well against the grey blue sky and water. Good sharpness and well composed with plenty of breathing space at the top and sides. Tfs!

    Hi Ike,

    I like the diffused light and the subtle warm cold color contrast between the grey blue asphalt and the red roof of the Alsatian restaurant. And I know they don't serve dog in there ;-) You would have to go to Korea and look long and hard to find a back street restaurant with a canine menu, apparently for stamina,, although I never tried or saw ant need to try it. The glimpse of water bottom left adds interest. Tfs!

    Hello Brian,

    Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the richly saturated yellow green grass and the blue sky and water. Wonderful rippled reflections and the decaying piers add interest. Nice repetition of the boats on the far shore. Tfs!

    Bonsoir, Ourania,

    The orange tinted clouds contrast well against the blue sea and sky and the tongue of land at right adds a focal point and centre of interest. Good sharpness and the distant hazy bg blue grey island makes a good secondary focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Danos,

    Good graphism and shadow detail with a surreal dramatic sky. The reddish brown sepia tint top right contrasts well against the blue grey clouds. The people add scale and animate the scene. I like the upward pov on the mounted ship. Tfs!

    Salut Didi,

    Well framed and composed although I would have left a little more breathing space at the top above the statue's head. Well managed low light levels with good contrasts between the textures and tones. Have a nice week!

    Good density levels with excellent sharpness and punchy light contrasts. The twisted ruin of the tower adds a fine focal point and graphic elements. A nice blue sky that contrasts well against the red roof and brick wall at right. Tfs!

    The 2 dark trees at right add a nice graphic element and nicely frame the semi frozen bg. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with the horizon placed below the centre line. Good shadow play in the fg. Have a nice week!

    Ciao Silvio,

    Fantastic graphism and silhouettes with wonderful reflections in the tranquil rock pools and more impressionist ones in the rippled bg water. The stone fort and islet add an interesting bg focal point. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs!
