    Salam Didi,

    The textures and colors, as well as the geometric shapes and patterns, this is an eye catching photo. It is only when we observe and ponder that the commonplace becomes wondrous and the wondrous becomes commonplace.

    Hello Aleksander,

    The couple walking their dog animate the scene and provide scale. Good sharpness and the central pathway adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. The curve of the road provides but a tantalizing glimpse of the vanishing point. Good color, saturation and smart choice of a vertical format. Tfs.

    Hello Bev,

    I like the sub frame at top right formed by the fence. Good sharpness with nice graphic elements. The trident shaped dividing fence nicely points into the distance and provides fantastic lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. The cloud patterns add interest to the sky. Tfs.

    Hi Sasha,

    A superb rural scene of the long haired goats and sheep with excellent sharpness and smart choice of a vertical frame. The shepherd in a straw hat and shorts is an integral part of the scene and provides both scale & context. Good colour and saturation. Tfs.

    Hi Wolfgang,

    Good sharpness with superb density levels giving punchy light contrasts and nice saturation. The person adds scale and animates the scene. I might have tried to centre the verticals in a pattern like: / | \ so a slight rotation to the right to get the verticals in the centre nice and perpendicular. Tfs.

    Salut Jean.

    The fg layer of pink flowers adds depth and a nice warm cold colour contrast against the blue sky. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. The column at left with a statue atop it adds a good focal point and the people in the bg provide scale and animate the scene. Tfs.

    Bonjour Christiane,

    Missed this one. Incredible repetition of the square & diamond shaped shadows, with good sharpness and saturation. The red and blue colors set up a very good warm cold color contrast. Perspective has been well managed. Nice repetition of the bg white umbrellas, too. Tfs.

    Hi dear Christiane

    Good sharpness with excellent use of diminishing linear perspective with all lines converging from left to right towards the vanishing point at the 'cora' block at right. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red text and curved arch and the blue sky. Good reflections in the windows and some interesting repetitive patterns. Tfs.

    Hello Ann,

    Punchy light contrasts in this superb b&w image with good tonal contrasts between the light and dark tones. Good sharpness and the man animates the scene. Good inclusion of the iconic Route 66 sign. Smart choice of a vertical frame and good density levels. Tfs.

    Hi Burak

    A fine downward pov on thee ruins of the old bridge at Hasankeyf. Taken from the upper terrace of the teahouse, perhaps? Good sharpness and the people frolicking in the water animate the scene. I like the long shadows cast by the pylon and trees along the opposite bank. Tfs.

    A superb warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and the yellow brown fg grass. Excellent sharpness with natural looking color and saturation. The fg olive tree grove nicely frames the bg hill and fort. Punchy light contrasts and an informative note. Tfs.

    Hola Angel,

    I like the high key tones and minimalist colour together with the superb sharpness. Well composed with the narrow alley providing good lead in lines and perspective. The solitary man adds scale and animates the scene. The bg clocktower provides a good focal point in the distance. Tfs.

    Hello Nicolas!

    Missed this one. I like the square format divided into quadrants with the upper right section window open and the horse peering out, along with a partial view to the bg vineyards. Good sharpness and well co posed with effective tight framing. Tfs.

    Hi Eleu,

    The yellow and blue colors of the parasail and hang-glider make a fine warm cold color contrast and the blue sky provides an ideal backdrop. Good sharpness and well composed with plenty of breathing space right around. It is not often I see a parasailor and hangglider juxtaposed together like this. Tfs.
