    Hello Pierre,

    The backlight has been well managed and the tropical yellow green vegetation adds mood. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The colorful fg umbrella makes a good focal point. Tfs.

    Bonjour, Maciej

    Amazing repetition of the sea of red rooftoops, and taken from a superb high vantage point. Good sharpness and no part of the frame is wasted. The strip of greenery at the front acts as a nice frame. Tfs.

    Bonjour, mon ami JJ,

    Well framed and composed into a stylish quartette of windows, each with its own windowbox of pink flowers. Excellent sharpness and perspective has been well managed. I like the shadow play of the shutters at right. Tfs.

    Hi Murat

    I haven't seen one of these gladiator statues since I was in Pompeii! And here we have 2 of them! Good warm cold color contrasts between the red bricks and the blue sky with superb sharpness. The architecture looks vaguely ancient Greek and / or Ottoman? Tfs.

    Hello Brenda,

    Lol! And yes, the front of the bus does resemble a smiling grasshopper with just a little imagination. The blue stripe and sky also contrast well against the red brick wall at right. Well framed and composed. Good reflections in the shiny window. Tfs.

    Hi Pedro,

    An expansive view of these fascinating prehistoric ruins that look more sophisticated than some ancient Roman cities! Good density levels and sharpness. The silhouetted prickly pear at left adds a nice graphic element. You might need to auto clean sensor. I see a couple of dust bunnies in the sky. Excellent color and saturation. Tfs.

    Hello Piotr,

    The stork atop the nest is an unexpected bonus in this shot. Good sharpness with a soft, diffused light and wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the red shingles and brick, orange wood and lemon-yellow facade of the central building; and the blue-grey sky. Tfs.

    Ciao Carlo,

    The yellow floats add interest and also contrast well against the blue sky and water to give a pleasing warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Fantastic fg reflections in the tranquil lagoon, which contrasts well against the ruffled bg water with surf. Tfs.

    Hello Serghei,

    Congratulations on your 9 years. I am glad you have stuck with TE, despite the sometimes annoying technical glitches with servers. Good density levels that have given ideal saturation and punchy light contrasts with clean whites and solid blacks. I've seen many historic ruins in Turkey, Italy, and Greece so it's great to see them in an ideal state of repair, even if they are only copies.

    Hello Les,

    Lovely soft pastel colors and a superb warm cold color contrast between the blue and orange skies and water. The people walking their dog on the beach animate the scene and provide scale. Looks like the dog has spotted you too. The intrepid swimmer braving the cold water alone adds interest. Good dof and sharpness too. Tfs.

    Hello Craig,

    I did not get to Moraine Lake but did get some nice shots up on Sulfur Mountain, and of the waterfall. With Banff, it's hard to go wrong. Just about any direction you go is wonderful scenery. The hoodoos track was nice too. Good repetition of the canoes, and their bright colors and shapes resemble flower petals. Maybe you should learn to swim next time you're in a warmer location, unless Vancouver has heated pools? You're too valuable a photographer to lose through drowning! I'd be more terrified of not being able to swim on open water.

    A striking warm cold color contrast between the deep blue Mediterranean and the red tanker. A nice juxtaposing of the small yacht at left against the larger ship at right. I like te wide angled panoramic crop. Tfs.

    Love the amazing repetition of the ripple patterns in the sand, as well as the superb warm vs cold color contrast between the blue sky and yellow red sand. The thin sliver of dark blue Pacific Ocean nicely separates the 2. Tfs.

    Bonjour Serge,

    Looks a little like Romania, Rasnov Fort or Sibiu perhaps? Good warm cold color contrasts between the red-tiled roof of the conical tower and the bg blue sky. Excellent sharpness and the storks nest atop the tower adds charm and interest. The red flowers add a splash of color. Tfs.

    Nice to see another painting from Melbourne other than Chloe at Young and Jacksons. I like the interaction between the viewer at right and the painting. Good sharpness and a superb warm cold color contrast between the yellow toned artwork and blue-grey surroundings. Tfs.

    Bonjour Philippe

    I like the minimalist color and strong graphic elements between contrasting light and dark tones. Nice repetition of the bracket fungi on the dead tree and fantastic reflections in the water. The dead tree adds natural lead in lines and perspective. A subtle warm cold color contrast between the yellow green moss and blue reflected skylight. Tfs.

    Hi Stephen,

    Possibly a little camera shake but it's difficult to get enough light inside these dark and gloomy interiors for perfect sharpness. Do you have 'museum setting' on your camera? I find that helps sometimes as well as removing any filters. Anyway the color contrasts between the red and blue are wonderful and the ornate decorations superb. Tfs.

    Hi Silvio,

    Missed this one. Nice use of the fg arch as a framing device. Good sharpness and the fg path adds deep lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. Attractive pastel colors. The pale red bricks contrast well against the blue sky to give a pleasing warm cold color contrast. Tfs.
