    Hello Neyvan

    A nice blue sky backdrop that contrasts well against the red tiled rooftops. Good sharpness and a wise choice of a vertical format to emphasise the height of the tower and tree at left. The diagonal axis of the fg fence adds dynamism. Good density levels and graphic elements such as the dark tree trunks with a good exposure on the white highlights. Tfs.

    Hello Neyvan

    The bg tower resembles a minaret on a mosque. I initially thought this was taken in the Middle East or North Africa so it was a surprise to see Uruguay. The curving freeway adds deep lead in lines and perspective. Good color and sharpness. Beaches on islands near the mouth of the Yangtze River in China are also brown. Tfs.

    Hello Sasha,

    The dog is not readily apparent in the thumbnail so it was a nice surprise to find it upon opening the bigger picture. Good exposure on the white highlights of the snow with superb sharpness and shallow dof. I like the layering effect here with the dog sandwiched between the wall and fg snowbank. Tfs.

    I am fascinated by old ruins. We have none in Australia of this age. Good repetition of the stone arches and the 4 white posts in the arena, and excellent colour and saturation. The TE site does not like upper apostrophes but accepts commas. I like the arch at top right with blue sky as a backdrop. This would make a fine photo in isolation. Tfs.

    Bonjour Jean,

    Well composed with the horizon line places away from the centre and near the upper horizontal 1/3 axis. Good sharpness and subtle sunset colors of reddish pink in the sky that contrast well against the blue grey tones. The rock wall at right adds deep perspective. The surf and waves add interest. Tfs.

    Hello Burak

    I think I have read somewhere that these 2 Roman columns were used a giant slingshot or catapult at some stage. Perhaps just a legendary story. Good sharpness and the strong back light has been well managed by blocking the sun with the column. I tried a similar feat in the Vatican. The Corinthian style columns are a long way from Corinth. Tfs.

    Hello Piotr

    A nice Christmas card scene of winter in Slovakia. Good sharpness and the blue sky contrasting with the white snow is a bonus. Excellent density levels that have iven superb graphic elements such as the dark church tower and fg building at right spire against the lighter sky and snow. Tfs.

    Hello Roger

    I had the strange experience in Norway of opening the curtain of my 7th story hotel room in Geiranger Fjord, to be looking directly into the 7th deck of a similar gigantic cruise ship, with 8 decks above the waterline. I might have tried to include all of the nose at left, but sharpness, color and saturation are all excellent. I like the warm cold color contrast set up by the red funnel at the back of the boat against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hello Danos,

    A superb decisive moment capturing the bather suspended in mid air above the yacht. Good sharpness and I like the blue colour tones of sea and sky contrasting against the white clouds. Nice repetition of the boats. Well composed with the horizon line placed on the lower 1/3 axis. The boys warm skin tones contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hi Ann,

    A superb landscape shot with the dual sides of the clear stream adding natural lead in lines and linear perspective towards the pine tree on the vanishing point. Good colour and saturation. The warm Autumn colours of the trees contrast well agaisnt the blue grey tones of the sky and reflected skylight in the stream. Tfs.

    Hello Stephen

    Looks very British. Good sharpness and fantastic linear perspective with all lines converging towards the back. Nice repetition of patterns and shapes and the people add scale and context. There are similar arcades in Sydney and Brisbane. The chessboard patterned floor adds a nice graphic element. Tfs.

    Hello Ourania,

    A relaxing seaside scene with the breaking wave caught at the right moment to give a superb decisive moment shot. Dramatic tonal range in the sky and the blue grey colors predominate nicely. Good sharpness and I like how the white church on the headland at rights stands out. Tfs!

    Good sharpness on the clocktower with superb graphic elements and excellent minimalist color of just the yellow green illumination and the black night sky. The upper portion looks vaguely Middle Eastern. I arrived in Wroclaw by train but missed this so tfs.

    Hi Paul

    A superb high pov with good sharpness and lots of interesting details to observe. The long tour boat reminds me of ones I saw on the Danube. The stone church tower on the horizon stands out well. Well composed with equal symmetrical portions of blue in the sky at top and the water at the bottom. Tfs.

    I might have boosted contrast a little to allow for the haze, but the minimalist colors and mood here are still very nice. I like the wide angled panoramic format and the superb high pov. Good sharpness and the yellow green fields contrast well agaisnt the hazy forested blue grey mountains in the bg. Tfs.

    Hello Denis,

    It looks like the Byron Bay lighthouse in Australia. Wonderful lush green grass and a smart choice of a vertical format to accentuate the height. The lighthouse makes a good focal point. The yellow flowers contrast well against the blue sea. Tfs.
