    Hello Jorge,

    Thank You for not giving up and sticking with the site. The little red boat makes a fine warm cold color contrast with the blue sea and sky. Tfs!

    Hello Luciano,

    A good daily life scene of this baptism from within the cathedral of Sioni. The flattened perspective from using the zoom lens works well here. Tfs!

    Hi Gert & welcome back!

    I also got locked out for 3 days. The trio of men on their makeshift outdoor office desk provide a fine centre of interest. The disinterested dog at left adds an amusing touch. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen,

    Good fg shadow details with excellent textural details and the Juderia of Toledo sign adds some interesting questions. The lone bike outside the grocery store is a nice daily life scene. Tfs!

    The old wooden sailing ship provides a fine centre of interest. Good sharpness and excellent warm cold color contrasts between the orange roofs at right and the blue sky. Tfs.

    The fg tree at top right adds depth and layering to the composition. Good sharpness and the old man walking by provides a focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Ike

    It's not just volcanoes that cause tsunamis. Earthquakes are a much bigger cause. Both the 1960 Pacific tsunami originating in Chile and the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami off Sumatra were caused by earthquakes over 9.0. There are several spots around the Mediterranean where such earthquakes can / could occur. The super volcano off Naples is one of them. There are a dozen faults off Istanbul that could rupture at any moment. So if this sign saves just one life its money well spent.

    I am glad I took the time to stay in Matera for a few days. Lots of good photo ops there as demonstrated yet again in this superb wide angled rooftop view. Tfs!

    Good evening Beverley

    The curving rough stone path adds lead in lines and texture. I would not like to be in a boat attempting to use the channel at low tide. The boat sensibly moored offshore waiting for high tide provides context and a good focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Denis,

    You continue to post top quality landscapes from various locations around Europe. Merci! In like the layering here with the fg shingle roof, the red roofed building behind it, then the conifers on the green slope, the mountains and finally the sky. Tfs!

    Hello Jean

    The blood red poppies are certainly evocative of the carnage of WWI. The sculpture at top left of the field marshall or some other upper ranked army officer with the binoculars is something I haven't noticed before in other uploads. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    Superb use of selective focus with the brightly colored kingfisher in perfect focus and both the fg and bg blurred and oof. The curving rail helps with the composition too. Tfs!

    Hi Krzysztof

    The modern clean cut glass facades give an intriguing contrast between old and new. This cathedral looks more like a museum. Good sharpness and the low internal light has been well managed. Tfs!

    Kalispera Danos,

    I knew there was thermal activity at Santorini but was surprised to find it occurs here and there at other locations around Greece such as the sulphurous beach on Zakynthos and as depicted here. A superb aerial view of the harbor with good sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Bev,

    Missed this one. The bg lighthouse with the nearby French tricolor flag makes a good focal point. The strong diagonal line of all the moored boats is adding perspective, echoed to a lesser extent at top right by a 2nd row. Tfs.

    Hello Serge,

    Missed this one. The giant marionette and the 2 human helpers in red outfits are an eye catching sight in this shot. The bg of buildings was not conducive to a clean shot but sometimes you have to go with what you've got. Tfs.

    Ciao Silvio,

    Good use of the fg arch to frame the attractive Basilica of St Nicholas. The pigeon perched at top left has a good position to survey the crowds coming and going in the duomo. Tfs!
