    Howdy Serghei,

    Your scene of modern Thessaloniki reminds me of a giant detailed jigsaw puzzle, buildings in all angles, densely crowded together and dominantly whites.

    Well done,
    Cheers,

    Howdy Gerrit,

    Interesting Queen Elizabeth Park scene with the herd of antelopes grazing in the high grasses, with a background of green trees, and all in fine resolution.

    Good job,

    Interesting abstract water patterns in the wavy flow, greens and whites on blue. Fun to search for these artistic Nature creations on water.

    Howdy Ourania,

    Serene Leros scene with the waterfront village along the distant hills, and Koroula at rest in the deep blue Aegean.
    My Dad and I fished many times in small wood boats like this, and it is smart to have oars along incase the outboard motor stops.

    Have a wonderful weekend,
    Sincerely,
    Ray

    Hi Ike
    A lovely shot on a brilliant day depicting a vibrant place packed by rich colours and detail with the crowd enjoying the view - a great square to socialse - all makes a nice foreground but the unique architectural beauty grabs the eye almost instantly. The compo works well superbly arranged in this manner with lovely touch of green branches as natural framing there.
    Wonderful catch, TFS

    Hi Christiane
    Great action shot, an airborne fire extinguisher of a bigger scale! something that's a little too fast for the eye but beautifully snapped and love that water vapour creating such a great effect there. It's bright, very fine details & vibrant colours and good choice of dof. A lovely shot all round, Congrats

    Hi Ourania
    Great capture from top to bottom, an idyllic spot with sense of isolation and tranquility as nature preparing the way for the evening. Lovely that you have got a clearer distinction between light and dark areas with wonderful shades and shadows where the source of warm light is handled so expertly. The delicious gentle ripply water looks so fluid with lovely golden touch in the distant while the colourful protagonist glues as a strong point of anchor leading us in all the way.....

    Extremely a peaceful spectacle skillfully captured. Congrats

    Howdy Ed,

    Provocative combination of engineering necessity - canal transport and modernistic architecture - symbolic giant blades, plus mirrored within the water and subdued lighting.

    Good job,

    Howdy Ann,

    Idyllic Washington 'Americana' scene, the traditional wood barn architecture and textures, wood fence curving into the scene, dense green landscape, and contrasted with the dark stormy sky.

    Glad you got a little wet to create this fine scene,
    Well done,

    Howdy Christiane,

    Excellent 'stop action' view of this large hydroplane taking off from la mer, blue and water spray, and mountain landscape background.
    I am attracted to hydroplanes, perhaps because they combine water and sky.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Cheers,

    Hi Gerrit
    Can feel the depth and vastness from this pov, it's a wonderful collaboration between man and nature, the patterns, shades & shadows, and colours on the slopes and there is a multitude of detail there. A treasure trove makes me think of a painting or woven tapestry. It's beautiful with the greyish sky nicely contrasts the brighter side of the fields enriching the shot. Nice capture, well done, Congrats

    Hi Ourania
    A low key shot with a mysterious feel to it, a depth of view and perspective with the eye is directed instantly to the outside world thru the opennings. The external exposure is spot on, leaving the interior in total pitch darkness and a wasted negative space without any glimpse of highlights - this can be improved by tad softening of the heavily shadowed areas thus retaining some detail to lend a much more pleasing overall subtle feel. That's my frank opinion - coz I love low light low key - hope it's acceptable to you, nevertheless it 's a nice attempt. Congrats
