    Hi Marc,

    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.

    Hi Pavle,

    A nice contrast between the rounded logs and the chopped firewood. Good sharpness and each of the 2 images compliments the other. Somebody has been very busy with the axe. They deserve a warm and cosy winter for their efforts! Tfs.

    I like the unusual s shaped curves of the waterfall. Effective tight framing with just enough motion blur to suggest movement. The blue sky window is an unusual focal point. Good sharpness and The yellow-green contrasts well against the patch of blue. Tfs.

    A moody and atmospheric shot with superb symmetrical reflections and impeccable sharpness. Good diffused light and it reminds me of a similar swing bridge at Middle Harbour in Sydney, Au. Tfs.
