    Hi Ike

    2 views for the price of one with a superb reflection in the window. Good sharpness and its not hard to work out why it is called Mount White (Blanc). Tfs!

    The arm burgundy colors of the fg pavement and the orange rust color of the stone forts gate contrast well against the blue sky to give a superb warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    Hi Bev,

    I like the repetition of the mannequins and the stands. The dark color of the stands adds a graphic element against the lighter toned clothing. Good sharpness and the diagonal axis of the subject provides dynamism. Tfs!

    Hello Rob,

    Good choice of a vertical format to accentuate the height of the stone plaque. The fg couple in opposing red and blue add a focal point. Excellent sharpness and the dark lamp post adds a graphic element. The ship in a bottle provides a centre of interest. Tfs!

    Hello Benny

    Many Chinese work very long hours (up to 80 hours a week) so it is no surprise to see them grabbing a catnap here and there when they can. Good daily life scene of the sleeping man on a boat. Tfs!

    I might have added more shadows to this one but it is still good as is. This brings back nice memories of my visit to Vienna in 2014. The fg wall at right adds depth and a part frame. Tfs!

    Hello Burak,

    The ice and snow remind me of Erzurum. Good sharpness and nice use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. The diffused light works well and the cyan color of the walls adds interest. Tfs!
