    Hello, Benny,

    The old stone castle or fort out on what looks like an artificial peninsula, makes a fine focal point. Good sharpness and a marvellous blue sky backdrop. I like the clarity and emerald color of the sea. Nice density levels and the arched bridge at right attracts attention. Tfs!

    Bonjour, cher Christian,

    It is so sad that Europe tore itself apart twice last century. For all its faults, the EU is one way of minimising this from ever happening again. The large cross looms tall over the neat rows of tombstones of the foreign soldiers who died fighting for freedom and France. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio

    The white clouds have a slight cyan color cast but it is nothing serious. A little oversharpened but I like the fg partly buried arch of stone blocks. Well composed with a good angled pov on the Church of St. John de Butris. Tfs!

    Hi Christiane

    A good daily life scene with excellent sharpness and the orange towel hanging out to dry contrasts well against the adjacent blue sky light reflected in the window panel. Excellent textural details in the stucco wall. The washing hanging out to dry in the sun enhances this daily life scene. Tfs!

    Witaj Ryszard,

    Amazing that Latin has survived even though it is officially a dead language I can think of three 'English' words directly derived from these old words: solar, omnipotent, regal. I spent a couple of days at Gizyko in east Poland. Not much sun there! Tfs!

    Hello Danos,

    Lol at the title! The plastic female mannequin has a slightly defiant posture and its white color attracts attention in the darker gritty urban surroundings. Good sharpness and a well seen and fun shot. The diagonal axis of the whole building adds dynamism. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo

    Exactly the same in Erzurum in neighboring alpine Turkey. I like the color combination of blue and white with the sky and snow. The fg dark rectangular fences add nice graphic elements. The minimalist color works well here and superb sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello COnstantino,

    I've probably been on the same boat. It was also about 5 stories high. Good inclusion of the passenger looking towards the dock at left. The NEL Liner in the bg adds scale and dwarfs the parked cars on shore. The diagonal axis of the concrete pier adds dynamism. Tfs!

    Hello Maria


    The yellow bridge ans sunbathed esplade wall at left contrast well against the blue water and sky. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. I like the repetition of the lamp posts on the bridge. The people add scale and animate the scene. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    I love the repetition of the seagulls perched nonchalantly on the roof of the low roofed boat. The orange red buoys and box and on the roof contrast well against the blue sides. Good sharpness and saturation. Nice reflections in the water. Tfs!

    Hello JJ,

    Effective tight framing excluding the sky. The blue reflections in the mirror like surface of the glass and steel towers contrast well against the yellow green fg vegetation which also adds depth and framing. I like the repetition of the crystal prisms at the top of the buildings. Tfs!

    Hello Alexandre,

    Congratulations on your 10 years on TE! I like the motion blur of the water which is also symbolic of the time slipping by. The mist rising up from the plunge pool at left adds interest. The reddish brown colour of the water contrasts well against the blue grey mist. Tfs!

    A good silhouette of the woman standing alone on the beah and looking out to sea. Excellent sharpness and nice warm cold color contrasts between the orange and blue grey hues. The shallow dof works well here. I like the oof surfers offshore. Tfs!

    Congratulations on your 11 years on TE! Lush greenery of the lawns with excellent saturation and sharpness. I like the repetition of the rounded topiary bushes. The blue sky contrasts well against the yellow green grass. The fg birdbath adds interest. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    I like the wheeled rocking horse in the fg. Good interior shot with a soft diffused light and good sharpness. The teddy bear on the pillow is a nice touch. The angled pov on the antique bed shows it off to best advantage. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen

    They have almost identical gates in Beijing, Wuxi, Putuoshan, and many other Chinese cities. The people add scale and animate the scene. I like the way the triple arches frame the bg tropical vegetation. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. Tfs!
