    Hi Karolina
    I like the effect... There's not much going on here in a tight crop and mono helps with all the clutter. The scene has a certain formality with the ladies are close together on the lower left third hitting the spot which worked better in the frame, ensuring the eye comes to rest there as strong base line to support the composition. An effective summing up of the mood, very well seen and captured. congrats

    Hi Benny
    Love the detail although this looks rather busy. The real joy for me is the smiling faces within the frame but you still managed to maintain good interest around. The green and red details are effective against the mainly neutral tones of the stall and clothing. An interesting everyday pic well shot accompanied by your excellent description, Congrats.

    Hi Costantino
    A balanced shot portraying quite a restful harbour scene with the bench I believe for a weary walker to rest the tired legs. Good exposure, contrast and rich colours to work with, and pleasantly blended together. Nice work, Congrats

    Howdy Craig,
    I have fond memories of our early morning Agnes Lake Teahouse hike, and sipping some from the top. This shows part of the heavenly trail with ridgeline views of the craggy snow capped mountains. Must 'do overs' someday...

    Howdy Luciano,

    The 'mega' cruise ship anchored, dominates this view of the Helsinki waterfront. Like a giant hotel floating. And the classical buildings contrast, representing history and culture, and a bonus with the cathedral and its unique dome.

    Howdy Serghei,

    Certainly downtown La La Land has changed and become more crowded than when I worked here, many moons ago. Yet your image is like a 'time warp' in black & white from the 60s. Multi cultural with German truck, Japanese import parked behind, Thai restaurant, urban forest, art deco City Hall tower, etc.

    Ancient Roman stone columns weathering in line, contrasting with the green landscape flowing up the hillsides. And low cross lighting adds along with shadows.

    Very macbre scene for the thousands of bones needed to construct the interior, even using 'vaulted ceiling' style....Seeing in person might be tooo much for me, therefore your image will suffice in the meantime.

    Interesting view of the Ascoli Piceno plaza, from the female posing, others strolling, outdoor dining, then the classical architecture in shadow with a hint of the travertine construction.

    Hi Christiane
    What an intriguing sight which draws the eye into perspective with the stunning geological formation just draws all attention there. The delicious green soothes the overall effect backed by excellent great dof, sharpness and overall contrast. I think you've caught him on time as good point for the eye to rest. Well done shot, Congrats

    Such an image of serenity, the space and isolation is so wonderful. An idyllic, the sea is so calm, the blue of the sea and sky is amazing. I can picture myself on that yacht having a romantic dinner of crayfish and French champagne! Brill compo, wonderful colour and light. Congrats

    Hi May
    A picturesque fjord with its unique beauty seen from good view point, one will never get tired of seeing this, and you're making full use of that wonderful bend. It's well apportioned, with the shiny inviting blue water grabs all attention, I think you are blessed to see it and doubly blessed to capture the beauty full of vivid of colours and detail. A pleasure to view. Delightful capture, Congrats.

    Lovely the way she is 'posed' indicating her jovial mood, the radiant expression and eye interaction. It's strong, dignified and beautifully shot certainly makes her real proud.

    Frankly you should consider using shallowest dof excluding all distractions in bg, alternatively changing of viewpoint, softening or diffusing the distraction may also work. Good attempt nevertheless, Congrats

    Hi Ana
    The area must be very dimly-lifted based on yr exif data but you managed the lighting pretty well with adequate detail all round, but I cant imagine how the Franciscan monks can meditate in this place! It's hauntingly excellent picture of something never seen in my life & fantastic composition. Congrats and tfs

    One thing comes to mind, a shot consists of bold colours, contrast, shapes & shadows, all blended and timely captured. The woman gives a strong ref point to make it work as a whole. Excellent work, Congrats
