    Hello Luciano,

    The icebergs certainly rule out any chance of swimming in the lake. I think I will stick to the Mediterranean or find one of those hot thermal pools that Iceland is famous for. Good sharpness and framing as always. Tfs!

    Hello Paul,

    I like the repetition of the kites in the sky and the warm cold color contrasts between the orange and blue tints. The people add scale and animate the scene. Tfs!

    Hello Rob,

    The railway tracks add deep lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Good sharpness and a splendid high pov. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    I like the high key tones and the superb sharpness. Well framed and composed with attractive soft pastel colors. The red chimney at right sets up a strong color contrast. Tfs!

    Hi Silvio,

    I like the reflection in the shiny stones of the piazza in front of the church. Such a huge pity about the earthquake damage and devastation but I am glad Norcia dodged a bullet.

    Hello Benny,

    Excellent graphism of contrasting dark and light tones with superb use of differential focus to isolate and emphasise selected areas of the image. The 3 fg Muslim girls are well framed too. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen,

    It looks like a b&w version of the old Led Zeppelin album cover for Physical Graffiti. Good sharpness and well spotted rule of thirds in both vertical and horizontal planes. Tfs!

    Dag Lars,

    I like the repetition of the red pennant flags top left and they also contrast well against the blue sky. The street adds strong lead in lines and perspective. Tfs!

    It seems to have a red yellow color cast rather than oversaturation. I might try a workshop. Well composed with good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    The clump of exploding fireworks does indeed resemble a grove of palm trees either on a desert island or at an oasis in the Sahara. Good color and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Gert

    Lol at the juxtaposing of the ancient Viking image aboard the modern and less interesting super passenger liner. I caught one from Stockholm to Helsinki and Swedes were frantically buying as much duty free beer as they could! Good sharpness & graphism. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio,

    Such a tragic loss of both architectural gems and human lives. Good high pov and the clocktower makes a fine focal point in this image. Effective tight framing too. Let's hope the city is rebuilt sooner rather than later.
