    Hi Malgorzata
    That's work of art and creativity, smart photo title too!
    The brilliant light & colours look great competently handled and I like your idea by filling the frame with the 'giant match-sticks' centrally catching the eye straight on to main focal. We get to see very close detail of it, the elaborateness and I can only imagine the time taken to make this a reality which has always amazes me. The background puts this into right perspective and inclusion of the figures really demonstrates how huge this is. A Grand shot nicely done and useful notes too, TFS.

    I like the slight tilt of the head and the hint of a knowing smile in the eyes and mouth. He's engaging us in conversation on equal terms he's interested in the camera but not intimidated by it. I like this a lot, I would make basically cosmetic changes but nothing substantial, tone down the distracting background, so that it doesn't compete for attention. It's a pity his eyes were in shadow, you can lighten a tiny bit to give the eye - the soul more definition and clarity. These are my sincere critiques from the bottom of my heart hopefully acceptable to you. Congrats

    Hi Burak
    I like the tremedous depth, a depiction of wide open space in this, and the looming mountain range is lovely providing an interesting frame in the backdrop accentuating the sense of depth. The road leads viewers smoothly into the scene, exposure is spot on, I feel bit more contrast and sat still beneficial, Well done, Congrats.

    Hi Paul
    Tremendous city scape, lovely composition and range of the architecture of a pleasant shot, very clear and good DOF. The exposure looks good to me, full of wonderful colours and contrast, I feel the slight darker tone in the distant is great as a nice stopper. Well done indeed, and thanks for posting this stunning version of Tokyo skyline, Congrats. tfs

    Hello Gert,
    the young drink seller appears to be completely uninterested in your presence,his laid back attitude seems to epitomise the relaxed nature of the whole scene.
    Another fascinating glimpse of a very different world.

    Hello JoŽlle,
    I do like the minimalist approach with the few people well dispersed in this well composed panoramic photograph where the dividing layers play such an important role,the colours are very pleasing and clarity is first class.

    Hello Bev,
    With just a hint of Autumn and the little boat just waiting to set sail it`s easy to see the attraction of this very tranquil scene.
    There is a really nice depth to the shot with the reflection of the tree filling the empty space on the stream very well.
    Have a good day,

I am amazed at amount of details that you have got right throughout this indoor shot whch is subtly exposed. Splash of warm lights adds as good contrast, colours look natural and lively presence of people. Great work, Congrats

    Hi Murat
    Yet another historic sight and looks timeless, it's the mono version which really makes this landscape image. Fantastic contrasts here - bright whites and dark darks- give it a furthered boost adding that extra depth to the textures & detail fr front to back. Lovely bit of fg and tree branches are nice natural frame to the capture. Excellent snap and tfs.
