    Bonjour Serge,

    I like how the fg arch frames the bg arch. Good sharpness throughout except in the extreme fg. Excellent tonal and textural details in the shadowed fg arch. The person in red attire animates the shot and provides scale. Nice repetition of the columns at left. Tfs.

    Hello Maciej,

    I know this spot but had forgotten the name so thanks for posting. Good sharpness and superb reflections in this wonderful blue hour shot. The silhouetted tree branches add a nice graphic element against the deep blue sky. The yellow light on the green tree at right enhances the color palette. Tfs.

    Hello Pedro,

    A superb daily life scene from Mexico. Good sharpness, color and saturation. Some nice warm cold color contrasts at right between the red and cyan colors. The corn and beans in the street market add life to the clothing sellers. The 2 barefoot women animate the scene and provide scale. I like their colorful shirts with red and blue. Tfs.

    Hello Pierre,

    Chopin's heart is interned in Warsaw, and mention is made of his tomb in Paris. The colorful floral tributes attest to the admiration still felt for this much acclaimed Polish composer. Good sharpness and color with a soft diffused light. The flowers also add color. Tfs.

    Ciao Francesco

    This reminds me of Afyon in Turkey. Good sharpness and nice warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the reddish yellow tints in the rocky crag and the town itself below. Effective tight framing with good saturation. The threatening dark clouds add drama. Tfs.

    Hello Paul,

    A vertiginous view of the bridge and I like how it meets the fortified stone wall in the distance. The passing boat below adds scale as well as a good focal point. Excellent sharpness and well framed and composed. The shadow on the cliffs resembles an old celluloid film strip! Tfs.

    The yellow honey colored wall at left contrasts well against the blue grey flagstones of the the street and the light blue facade of the building at right. Good sharpness and the lone woman in the fg add scale and animates the shot. A pleasant diffused light with good sharpness. Tfs.

    Ciao Luciano,

    Excellent graphic elements of contrasting light and dark tones with superb reflections and good use of repetition. I like the electric like vertical reflections of the yacht masts. Splendid color and saturation. The highlights at the bottom have been well exposed. Tfs.

    Hello Mesut,

    The fg posts look like black pawns from a chess set. The motion blurred passers by animate the scene as well as providing scale to the colorful bg wall covered in eye catching graffiti. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Some talented street art in Turkey for sure. Tfs.

    Hello Ike,

    Good graphic elements of the lighter toned egret against the darker toned bg reflection in the water. Excellent sharpness and well composed utilising the rule of thirds for the fg riverbank. I like the repetition of the ripples in the river, and the saturation is excellent. Tfs.

    Hi Danos

    Reminds me of the old movie 'On Golden Pond'! The stunning reflections of the sunset within the water are superb and the solitary boat makes a fine focal point. Impeccable sharpness and fantastic saturation. The sections of green vegetation add to the color palette. Tfs.

    The predominant pale yellow area of the town contrasts superbly against the upper blue sky and the lower blue boats. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the fg boats. Excellent reflections in the slightly ruffled water. The angled axis of the row of boats adds dynamism. Tfs.

    The snow capped mountain makes a magnificent backdrop. Good sharpness and nice reflections in the slightly ruffled fg water with a few waterbirds to add interest. I like the low hanging clouds which add mood. Excellent graphic elements with strong tonal contrasts between light and dark. Tfs.

    Hi Ana,
    It looks very steep terrain and you captured the essence of this landcape well with tele zoom. The church catches attention well, being the only white detail there. Strong stripy appearance looks good on the terraced field.

    Hi Tiffany,
    Beautiful view from an empty looking sundeck. I can imagine this is crowded on daytime. But you made a good choice of coming here to capture blue hour. I think this is a bit oversaturated though.

    Beautiful tropical seaside scene. The walkway leads into view nicely and adds natural framing to left. Lovely low angle warm toned light. Again an amazing view from a rarely visited place.

    Light is perfect on this one. It illuminates these boats perfectly and some shadows in back add contrast. Wide angle fits well on this scene.
