    Ciao Mauro and a big welcome back

    It's a dream of mine to one day visit Sicily. The textural and tonal details revealed by the sidelight falling on the weathered columns at left are superb. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and yellow-red hued earth and ruins. Tfs.

    Hi Eleu,

    Wow! Missed this one. Incredible repetition of the seabirds with fantastic graphic elements of their dark shadowed bodies against the white surf. The blue water alos sets up a good warm cold color contrast with the yellow red sand on the beach at left. Tfs.

    Hello Neyvan

    Here the mountains look like an erupting volcano, with the cloud generated by the microclimate of the higher terrain apparently emitting out of the mountain itself at right. Good textural and tonal details in the snow. Tfs.

    Hello Neyvan

    Your hike up from the carpark paid dividends in this superb shot. Good warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the yellow tints in the jagged peaks of Torres del Paine. Excellent sharpness and framing. You were brave to go there in mid winter! Tfs.

    Bonjour Serge,

    Nice to see that life goes on, even after 9/11 which destroyed the twin towers of the former WTC. The new Freedom Tower at left is standing tall and proud. The solitary yacht adds interest to the harbour. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs.

    Bonjour Lars,

    Chicago has the look of Melbourne in Australia. Good sharpness and a superb aerial view, presumably from yet another skyscraper. The blue colour of bg Lake Michigan contrasts well against the soft yellow sunlight bathing the forest of highrise buildings. Tfs.

    Bonjour Nicolas ,

    This one looks a little oversharpened but caught my eye anyway because it reminded me of a similar rural scene with cattle that could just as easily be in east coast Australia. The light is superb and the diagonal track adds strong lead in lines. Well cropped and composed. Tfs.

    Hi Craig,

    I like the reflections on the lake. The length of the lake is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the mountains. The presence of the person has an effect of scale. The cloudy sky is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.

    Hello Benny,

    Effective tight framing in this superb daily life scene from modern China. Apparently Marco Polo brought back the idea for noodles to Italy as spaghetti starts appearing in Italy around the same time. They substituted wheat for rice. Good smiles on the waitresses too that look authentic. Tfs.

    Hello John!

    The canal at left adds strong lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. Good sharpness, color and saturation. Nice reflections and I like the warm cold color contrast between the red roofs and the blue sky. Tfs.

    Bonjour Pierre,

    Well framed and composed with no part pf the screen wasted, and plenty of breathing space around the church. Good sharpness and the partially diffused light works well here. The inverted C shape formed by the path stairs and church adds strong lead in lines. Tfs.

    Hello Stephen,

    The half-timbered house at left contrasts well against the rest of the squares architecture. Good color and sharpness. I like the diffused light, the muted colors and the zebra crossing adding graphic elements and diagonal lead in lines. Tfs.

    I like the layered effect with blue, yellow green, blue, yellow green and yet again blue in the sky. This striking warm cold color contrast is exceptional. Superb sharpness and well framed and composed with ideal density levels. Tfs.

    Bonsoir Cricri,

    It resembles a mini Bryce Canyon in the USA or Cappadocia in Turkey with the same heavily eroded geologic features. Good sharpness and the person adds scale. I like the sidelight on the left of the pinnacles providing definition. Excellent shadow detail. Tfs.

    I made a beeline for the Oslo Opera House, so I missed this building. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The three different layers of people add depth and animate the scene. Nice repetition of the arched windows. Tfs.

    La forteresse semble se confondre avec l'environnement depuis des siècles. Seul le drapeau flottant au vent rappelle la présence de cet édifice.
