    Hi Jean,

    Fabulous blue colors in the water. The texture of the rocks is also interesting. A good sense of depth as the pool recedes int the distance.

    Hello Csaba,

    This is a fine stained glass window. Your photo shows us all the details, and you have eliminated the distortions that you get when taking a photo looking up at a high window. Perfect exposure and sharpness.

    Hi Noel,

    This bird is a long way from home! It's a familiar sight to me, but you have done well to capture the details in the dark plumage. Is it true that there are white swans? Who would have though such strange things exist? The northern hemisphere sure is a weird place.

    It's good to see that temples like this are still be constructed. Your photo captures all the exquisite detail - it looks like frozen flames. The dragon in the foreground makes a good focal point.

    Hi Craig,

    I tend to lose patience when waiting for just the right moment to take the shot. Your patience has paid off here, with the group of colorful and animated figures in the foreground providing a nice contrast with the pale, monumental arches (or iwans) behind them. Your photo brings out the wonderful symmetry of the building.

    A strong composition, with a glimpse of the blue tile work behind the old weathered columns. The tiles must be a much later addition to this medieval church.

    The long shutter speed gives a nice silky texture to the water. Nice composition and sharpness. The overcast sky helps even out the light, although it looks like you may have fiddled with the sky in some way.

    Hi John,

    Such deep red colors! And such rich blue sky! The depth of field is impressive, so we can see details in the nearest tulips and also in the trees on the horizon. The low point of view works well here, giving a well balanced composition.

    Hi Chris,

    638 years to build, and it still doesn't look finished! There are bits missing all over the place. And some of those columns don't look too sturdy. No wonder the Greek economy is in trouble, if that's what their building industry is like. But apart from that, you captured a nice warm glow on the ruins, with lots of detail picked out by the light.
