    Hello Ike,

    The diagonal axis of the kayak adds dynamism. Nice reflections in the water with good sharpness and the facial expression on the rower is one of determination and endurance. The bright blue shirt stands out well against the softer pastel colours too. Tfs!

    Bonjour Jean Jacques,

    Effective tight framing with good sharpness and the flower boxes add a welcome splash of colour. Well composed using the rule of thirds. I like the alternating green and white window shutters. Merci!

    Hi Ana.

    Looks like the person depicted is covered in ants or bees. A fine abstract shot with wonderful warm cold colour contrasts between the yellow & blue colours. Well framed and composed. Excellent density levels and graphism. Tfs!

    Hello Gosia

    I like the soft diffusexd light and the old carriage in the corner which makes a fine focal point. Good sharpness and excellent warm reddish brown colour tones. The potplants add some welcome greenery. Tfs!

    Hi Bulent,

    So clever... Your highly interesting note made me discover this inspired artist, spontaneously jumping on Google to explore some of his installations, before coming back to your photo. Thank you for sharing!

    I guess that by taking part of the installation, you become a work of art yourself... No great special effect without the people in and out. A realistic result, well rendered and efficiently photographed. Amusing and convincing.

    Well done!

    Hi Leslie,

    Such weather conditions doesn't occur often, where the light is illuminating a specific area of interest in the composition, while darkening the surrounding. Even better, the dark row of cloud in the foreground brings so much character to the scene, while "closing" the upper part of your frame.

    This shot confirm that photography is all about capturing light... Very dramatic result.

    Well done!

    Salut Serge,

    Un endroit que j'ai également visité et tout comme toi, je trouve qu'il s'agit d'un très beau phare, surtout pour sa partie supérieure.

    Si je me souviens bien, j'avais photographié ce phare du même point de vue (un stationnement), mais je n'étais pas là au bon moment pour capturer ces jolies fleurs mauves qui agrémentent la scène tout en créant une belle diagonale.

    Excellent boulot!

    Hi Elaine,

    The mix of colours work so nicely, with these golden/beige tones against the green canvas and a touch of purple. The way the light fall on the scene is also very attractive, providing an atmospheric quality.

    I also like the full frontal point of view, that makes us focus on your subject.

    Well done!

    Hello Kasia,

    Shooting windmills with originality is easier said than done, first because they are a very popular and iconic subject, and master painters and talented photographers have already pushed the envelop to come up with something fresh and inspired.

    But you have pulled up a very interesting approach by using the windmill as a silhouette against a wide landscape, capturing both the morning fog and the mighty sun in a powerful manner. And despite the reduced size of the windmill, it is still the eye magnet in this composition, standing out the rest of the scene with a darker colour and a more elaborate level of details. I can also see that you have framed the ethereal clouds in a meticulous way that can't be the result of pure coincidence.

    Very well done!

    Hi Lars

    I like the rainbow at left and the superb colour, saturation and sharpness. Nicely composed into thirds of water, falls, and sky. The bg highrise contrasts well against the natural fg elements. The walkways at right add interest. Tfs!

    The arch makes a fine focal point and allows the view a glimpse of the bg scene. The steps at right add fine lead in lines to the upper balcony and deep linear perspective. Excellent sharpness and natural looking pastel colours. The parked motor cycle makes a good secondary focal point. Tfs!

    The meandefring stream provides good lead in lines and natural perspective. Superb warm vs cold colour contrasts between the orange red earthe and the reflected blue skylight in the water. The people add scale and context. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    The intricate Islamic art detail has been well captured here on account of the superb sharpness. I like the effective tight framing and the top and side lighting has brought out the fine textural details. Nice repetition of patterns and shapes. Excellent graphism and shadow detail. Tfs!

    Hello Brian

    The red barge contrasts superbly against the blue grey sky. Good sharpness and a nice contrast between the old and the new with the older waterfront residential properties juxtaposed against the newer bg highrise buildings. The blue sky makes a wonderful backdrop. The riverfront building at far left seems to be very popular with the crowds. Tfs!

    Hi Stamatis

    I visited Pompei last year and the site is massive, much bigger than I expected. I like the diffused light and dramatic clouds. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The square foundation structure in the centre makes a fine focal point. Good shadow detail and the horizon has been well positioned off centre. Tfs!

    Missed this one. Smart choice of a vertical frame with fantastic fg reflections and good sharpness and saturation. The pale honey yellow color of the bg buildings contrasts well against the blue sky. The fg fishing boats vaguely resemble Venetian gondolas. Tfs!
