    Hello Pierre,

    Good sharpness, and I like the warm vs cold color contrast between the blue grey snow and dark rocks against the warm dried tussock grass in yellow red in the fg. The bg mist adds mood and atmosphere. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen,

    I love the warm colours considering its snowed again today her in northern Romania. A good downward pov with excellent sharpness and nice repetition of the decorative lanterns. Dof has been well managed. Excellent saturation and perspective. Tfs!

    Hi Ike,

    Good symmetry of the 2 green bronze griffons guarding the fountain. I like the wonderful way the top of the bg palm tree seems to be growing from the top of the fountain. Nice reflections in the water too. The pigeons add life. The church at left nicely frames the scene. Tfs!

    Ciao Romano

    Intriguing shot of the alien green face painted on the facade of the bg building. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. The upper windows make perfect eyes! The green red blue and pale brown orange colours go well together. Good textural and tonal contrasts and the artists has even included some highlight areas in their sketch! Tfs!

    Hi Ann

    Aha! So this is what I missed. I went to the Grand Canyon and Tucson but not here or Sedona or Antelope Canyon. Maybe next time? The fossilized tree stumps are clearly visible in the fg gully at left. The people add scale and animate the shot. Tfs!

    Hello Giovanni,

    These trees look similar to Korean Gingko trees which also change color in Autumn. The red domed bg building has been well framed by the trees. Good color contrasts against the pale blue sky and the tour group animates the scene. Tfs!

    Hello Roland

    Nice use of the fg arch to frame the distant spire of St Marks. The inclement weather has been well captured. I like the reflections in the partially flooded piazza. The minimalist colours and diffused light work well here. Tfs!

    Love the green onion domes and cupolas and their repetition. Good sharpness and nice reflections in the shiny gold cupola. The fg people animate the scene and provide scale. Perspective has been well managed. Backlight has been well managed. Tfs!

    Hi Jean,

    What a gorgeous sunset! Good graphism and silhouettes with excellent sharpness. I like the swirling partly dispersed jet trail illuminated by the setting sun. The blue grey headland at top left makes a fine bg focal point. The orange sky contrasts well against the blue grey water. Tfs!

    Hello Burak,

    The fog certainly imparts a mysterious mood and atmosphere! Good contrast between the clearly defined blue and white boat at right and the hazy almost indistinct city skyline in the distance across the harbour. The monochromatic tones also contrast well against the color in the boat. Tfs!

    Reminds me of Erzurum in Turkey where I lived for 5 months. The majestic snow-capped mountains make a superb backdrop to the fg city hugging the lower slopes. Good sharpness and tonal range. The road adds good lead in lines. Tfs!

Well managed backlight with good sharpness and strong light contrasts, Good sharpness and minimalist color. The blue and white cloudy sky makes a fine backdrop.

    An apt title with the cola cans and other scrap metal being collected by sampan. A superb daily life scene on the water village on stilts in Cambodia. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. Nice reflections in the muddy water too. Tfs!

    A lovely blue hour shot from La Spezia. I passed through Cinque Terre briefly last year. Good warm vs cold color contrasts with the yellow illumination cast by the street lamps, with superb sharpness and saturation. The people add scale and context. Tfs!

    Hello Miguel,

    I recall getting a lift to Bhaktapur by my hotel driver in Kathmandu. Good repetition of the colourful buses with a nice bg view of the Himalayan foothills. Excellent sharpness and litter seems to be a problem. A fine daily life scene from Nepal. Tfs!

    Hi Danos,

    Love the c shaped curve of the bay along the esplanade. Good sharpness and superb colour and saturation. Looks like Little Venice in Mykonos with out the mini tsunami waves smashing against the wall! The dining area looks lovely. Tfs!

    Nice reflections in the water with good sharpness, saturation and density levels. The children on the canoe make a good focal point. Looking further back at top right we can discern even more canoes! The chateau castle makes a fine secondary focal point and the cliff at right frames the scene well. Tfs!

    Hello Asa

    This reminds me of the old b&w tv show 'Casey Jones'! A good angled pov on the smoke belching locomotive all of which were removed as passenger train engines in Brisbane in the 1970s and replaced with electric trains. The red brick wall at left contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs!

    What a lovely mountain view and forest scene to wake up to every morning! The red terracotta tile roof contrasts splendidly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and well composed. I like the downward view across the roof into the valley. Tfs!

    Hi Ike,

    A nice blue sky that contrasts well against the red brick wall of the church at right. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. Glad you explained in the note about the flags. I thought the Swiss had invaded for a moment! Tfs!
