    Hello Malgo

    This mural is enormous. Smart choice of a wide angled panoramic format. The schoolchildren in the playground add scale. Excellent tonal range and density levels. Nice light contrasts too. Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    Missed this one. Wonderful reflections in the tranquil harbour waters with good saturation and sharpness. The red and blue shacks in the distance add strong warm cold color contrasts. Merci!

    Hi Neyvan,

    A stunning fiery sunset with good sharpness and saturation. I like the silhouettes of the bare, gaunt trees. The vivid yellow and orange tints stand out well from the blue grey hues. Tfs!

    Good sharpness with every word of the text clearly visible. The yellow fg contrasts well with the blue wall. I might have cropped the ceiling. Tfs!

    Hi Luis

    Good textural details in the weathered old facade of the building and a nice contrast between the faded colors and the vivid colors of the laundry hanging out to dry. Well framed and composed with excellent sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Mesut,

    Good use of a shallow dof to isolate and emphasise the camel. I like the downward pov from an elevated position and the red and blue cloths on the saddle which add warm cold color contrasts. Tfs!

    Ciao Pierre,

    The modern styled church has nice curves and good sharpness. The bare trees add layering and depth and partly frame the building. The evergreen tree at right contrasts well with the bare trees. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe

    A marvellous blue sky with good sharpness throughout. I might have cropped a little from the bottom to remove the part of a car at right. The yellow green tree at left contrasts with the bare tree at right. Tfs!

    Hello Danos,

    This one is probably the best of the series so far. A splendid capture of the ceremonial handover of the Olympic torch to Rio. The inclusion of the Greek and Brazilian flags adds context. Tfs!

    The purple wisteria bushes in full flower add a lively splash or color to this superb landscape. Good sharpness and the snow capped peaks make a majestic backdrop. Tfs!

    The golden cross contrasts superbly against the blue sky and the dark fg fence adds depth and layering as well as a strong graphic element against the lighter toned bg. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    Hello Kik,

    I was lucky enough to see some tulips in Bulgaria this year and just in the nick of time. The following day someone had come along and snipped and cut about 90% of the flowers that were there then I photographed them in Primorsky Park in Varna. Good layering of the different colors here with nice use of a shallow dof. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    Effective tight framing on the magnificent Gothic cathedral with good sharpness. It looks a little like the Notre Dame in Paris in style. Or Nimes. The stained glass windows look like promising photo subjects, if photos are allowed inside. Tfs!

    Hello John.

    Wonderful linear perspective of the rows and rows of white tulips stretching back towards the horizon. Excellent sharpness and a good dof with almost the entire immediate field in sharp focus. Only the very back and very front are in soft focus. Tfs!

    Hi Lars

    Nice symmetrical placement of the 2 windmills in the frame when composing. Good sharpness and the 3 boats on the canal adds fine focal points. Well composed using the rule of thirds with the skyline well away from the centre. Tfs!

    Ciao Ourania

    I was able to get my Nikon lens repaired cheaply in Izmir. I am sure Athens also has a Nikon branch. Perhaps Salonika too? Anyway I was wondering why many people were wandering around with lit candles the other night. The note explains it. A nice minimalist shot. Tfs. Ps, I can give you an address in Izmir.

    Hello Daniel

    I like the solitary animal grazing in the fg at right. It adds scale and contrasts well against the forest of man made towers in the distance. Good sharpness too. The field of yellow is nice. Tfs!
