    Hello Ike,

    Nice repetition of the white ducks and I like the intense blue of the skylight reflection in the water. Good bg reflections of the green trees. Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    It is very unusual to see an alphorn at sealevel! The gifted musician is well positioned in the frame between the 2 fish trap structures. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    Hi Ike,

    A superb high pov overlooking the city with excellent sharpness. I also like the warm cold color contrasts between the red rooftops and the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hi Murat,

    France invaded England in 1066 & did not leave until 1201. So there are many French words in the English language. William the Conqueror of Normandy defeated Harold the 1st. The Bayeaux Tapestry depicts battle scenes. And France in turn was ruled even longer by the Romans so that explains the Latin words seen here finding there way to England. Tfs!

    Ola Fabiano,

    Well composed using the rule of thirds with good sharpness. I might have added more shadows and contrast and I will check the workshop. The stone fort on the cliff adds a focal point. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe

    Perspective has been well managed placing the verticals centrally. Good sharpness and the traffic island makes a fine focal point. Th dark steeple of the church at right adds a graphic element. Tfs!

    Hello, Malgo!

    Lovely rippled reflections with good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. The yellow green colour of the foliage contrasts well with the blue sky reflections. The colorful Mandarin ducks are a bonus. Tfs!

    Hi Rob,

    A wonderful abstract reflection of St Paul's Cathedral albeit a little distorted in the spherical mirror like sculpture. The red buses add a great warm cold colour contrast with the blue. It looks a little like an 80's pacman! Tfs!

    The recycling of ruins is not unique to England. It happened in Greece too. And many other countries. Good sharpness, perfect density levels, nice graphism and the people add scale. Tfs!

    I like the intense blue color of the reflected skylight in the meandering stream. A superb elevated pov using a drone. The chimney stacks at left contrast well with the village at right. Tfs!

    Hello Noel,

    An amusing shot of the unusual family pet. For a moment I thought it was trying to eat her tongue but lucky I read the note which explains it was just a piece of bread. Strong warm cold color contrasts between the blue and red with good sharpness. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    The yellow rapeseed, canola or mustard (forgive me, I am not a botanist) contrasts well with the blue sky to give a sublime warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    I like the dramatic cloudy sky with its multitude of tonal nuances and the wide angled, panoramic crop. The dark poplar trees add a graphic element. Tfs!
