    Hi Gert
    so this is Olomouc, one of the cities we wanted to visit but had to cut short off of the list due to time.

    nice to see they also have a 'clock'
    those damn german soldiers eh! how dare they destroy that clock! glad to see the government decided to build a new one or re-construct it.

    we don't have anything like this here in Canada, do you guys have one in your country?

    as for the men waving, they may not be waving at you, but its funny none the less and adds a bit of humor to the scene.

    thanks for this one
    cheers

    Hi Stephen
    so is there where you stayed? :)
    I bet this place is going to cost a pretty penny won't it!

    even in this cloudless sky and bright light the photograph looks well exposed.
    the blues work well against the sandstone type of color.

    elegant and sophisticated presentation.
    cheers

    Hi Luciano
    oh I love these!
    I could easily post another 20 photos from Cuba wit similar looks - but I don't want to be too repetitive.

    you can see this around everywhere in Havana.
    the best way to photograph them and present them is exactly how you did here, upfront and center.

    love the textures and the grunge!

    Hi Will
    so this is Juliet eh? haha
    She looks to be very clean and well groomed, I wonder if that was such the case many years ago :)

    as for the tourist attraction, I didn't go see it, maybe some other time - there just seems to be a lot of questions about it.

    as for the real subjects in the photo though, who can resist the green shutters contrasted against the yellow walls, love that look.

    thanks for this one

    Hi Danos
    who wouldn't want to be here right?
    I know I would like to be there for a day or two, just to chill and relax.

    nice to see the mountains far off into the bg, and the sweet blues are elegant.
    nice shot

    Hi Denis
    I chose this one in your gallery because of the pov, I like the height its taken at, while looking downward.

    and the white boats stand out so well against the deep dark green color too.
    lots to like here

    Hi Eleu,

    The aircraft is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing with precision the details of the DC-3 in flight. The quality of the light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

    Bonsoir Chris,

    La longueur du pont donne de la profondeur à la composition. L'utilisation d'un ISO de 1600 et d'une vitesse lente d'exposition permet de voir les détails du pont et de l'immeuble. Cela a aussi un effet spécial sur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

    Hello Piotr,

    I will have to explore more of Slovakia when I go back in September. So far I have only spent time in Bratislava. Good sharpness and the colorful fg red flowers add depth and a pleasant warm cold color contrast with the blue sky. The double onion-domed tower at right makes an obvious focal point and is well placed on the 1/3 vertical axis. Tfs.

    Hello Ike!

    I will have to look at a map to see how close I was to seeing this town. I spent some time in Bavaria last year. Good sharpness with attractive warm colors and interesting old sundial at the bottom contrasting well with the clock at the top. The vertical frame works well. Tfs.

    Hello Silvio,

    The dark green segment top right doesn't really bother me but the image looks stronger when it's cropped. Fantastic array of color with good use of a shallow dof and a nice catch of the woman photographer at work. She adds scale and context. Tfs.

    Bonjour Serge,

    Only in New York would the crowds would not find this scene somewhat distracting. I would have a difficult time pointing my camera at the woman, afraid that I might be regarded as a voyeur. Perfectly times photo, well composed, perfectly "exposed" (not to play on words).

    Warm regards,

    Hello Mariusz

    The weather and lighting were kind to you here. Good density levels with solid blacks and clean whites that give excellent tonal contrasts and superb saturation. The woman in the hot pink sets up an immediate warm cold color contrast against the blue sky. Tfs.

    The backlight has been well managed and the silhouetted castle makes an interesting backdrop. Good sharpness and nice sparkles on the water. The diagonal sunbeams add dynamism. Tfs.

    Hello Danos,

    This is a most inviting view of the crystal clear swimming pool against the waters of the Mediterranean.

    I hope that the difficult times that the people of Greece are facing after the divisive referendum will turn out to be for the better. I am personally nervous about the outcome of the referendum, but let's hope that the course ahead will be as crystal clear as the Aegean seen here.

    Warm regards,

    A splendid warm vs cold color comtrast between the ripening yellow-red grain in the fg and the bg blue sky with fantastic sharpness, saturation and color. The few green ears in the fg add depth and layering. The hillside village makes a fine focal point. Tfs.

    Nice reflections in the fg water and the boat is well positioned at the top of the frame. Good color, sharpness and saturation. I like the repetition of the tyres at the top and their dark tones add a nice graphic element. Tfs.

    Hello dear Constantino,

    Again a most alluring photo of an island of Pythagoras and Aristarchus, a paradise of an island that I want very much to see. The waters look refreshing and crystal clear.

    Hello Nicolas,

    A very pretty scene of the cloud shrouded alps. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts with superb saturation. Fortunately all the volcanic activity is in Italy and to a lesser extent, Greece. The diagonal slopes add dynamism. Tfs.
