    Hi Mesut

    The ubiquitous pink oleander flowers of the Mediterranean region are self evident here. The splash of yellow from the less familiar tree at right compliments the scene. I have been through Gochek but did not stop. It looks nice. Good repetition of the boats in the harbour. Excellent reflections. Tfs.

    Bonjour Gildas,

    It's possible to buy this cheese in Australia. The cow that laughs looks happy enough. Good sharpness and striking warm color splashes added by the bright yellow and red packaging of the circular container. The chair with the invisible seat looks like a potential problem! Tfs.

    Hello Pierre,

    Nice reflections in the still, tranquil water of the fountain with the golden flowers in the stone pots adding a welcome bright splash of color and the fg ducks in the water animating the scene. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with superb lead in lines and perspective. Tfs.

    Hi Angshuman

    I am hoping to visit Slovenia when I return to Schengen in September. A fine high pov with good sharpness and an amazing turquoise colour of the water. The little castle on the island makes a fine focal point. Tfs.

    Hello Christian,

    I like the cauliflower clouds on the horizon and their texture and tonal range. Good sharpness and a nicely framed harborside scene. The big fg tour boat adds an excellent focal point. The old stone tower at right adds a complimentary focal point. Excellent color saturation and the red orange roofs contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Salut Christiane,

    The vivid red colors of the sea of roofs contrast well against the blue sky. I like the wide angled panoramic format and the superb sharpness and nice reflections in the water. The fg branches add depth and layering. Tfs.

    I could not resist this striking ensemble of gold and blue with the yellow sunflowers juxtaposed against the cyan blue sky. Good sharpness and the stone building on the horizon adds interest. Tfs.

    Bonjour, cher ami Didi,

    The white ducks and swan animate the scene and I like the low shooting angle looking up at the bridge. The warm color of the bridge contrasts well against the blue sky and water. Good sharpness and amazing repetition of the white flowers in the water. Tfs.

    Hello Miguel,

    I love the exaggerated motion blur of the lower part of the dancing woman's dress. Good sharpness elsewhere and the warm colors of golden yellow and red add mood. The seated guitar playing person at left adds symmetry to the composition. Tfs.

    Hello Malgo,

    I like the warm cold color contrast between the turquoise hot water spring in the fg and the red torii gate. The steam denotes goethermal heat. I mainly visited Nagasaki and Fukuoka in Kyushu. I will have to go back to see Aso volcano and Beppu. Tfs.

    A striking contrast between the old and new architectural styles with good sharpness and a nice additional graphic element in the fg with the darker toned double street lamp against the lighter toned bg skyscraper. Smart choice of a vertical format to emphasise the height. Tfs.

    Hello dear Silvio,

    The 2 butterflies attending to the calls of nature are well framed and the shallow dof has isolated and emphasised them distinctly from the oof fg and bg. Good colour and saturation. The warm rust red color on their wings contrasts well against the cooler blue hues. Tfs.

    Hello Paul,

    Reminds me of a hotel I stayed at in Miyajima where I tried sushi for the first time. It was okay too. Good color scheme with excellent sharpness and the diagonal lines add dynamism. Nice repetition of the squares formed by the windows at left. The opposing angle of the central vertical cloth stands provides contrast. Tfs.

    The strong backlight has been well managed with excellent shadow detail and a pleasant diffused light. Soft natural looking pastel colours and the people animate the scene. The inverted wishbone shaped roads adds dual lead in lines. Tfs.

    I have never flown Lufthansa. One day, perhaps. Good sharpness and especially considering the speed that these aircraft move at. A nice upward pov. The yellow part of the tail contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs.
