    Hello Krzysztof,

    Looks similar to an underground wine cellar. Good sharpness and the warm reddish brown colour of the bricks adds charm and atmosphere. Nice perspective and framing. Tfs!

    Ciao Carlo

    The many headed dragon on the exterior is intriguing. It might be a mythological hydra. Good warm cold color contrast in the artwork and nice reflections in the interior seating of the church. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    Hello Luciano,

    They had this option at the Dead Sea in Jordan, and in South Korea, but I elected just for regular floating on my back. Looks like these ladies are enjoying the experience and they can wash it off immediately before heading off. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge,

    Well composed with the ramp at right adding strong lead in lines and linear perspective. The people add scale and animate the scene. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The 2 alcoves at the top allow another focal point. Tfs!

    Salut Pierre,

    Another fine shot of a bird rookery and an excellent upward pov with good sharpness. Good shadow detail in the cliffs. The strip of green foliage clinging precariously to the edge of the precipice adds color. Tfs!

    Hi Craig,

    I like this very wide angled view of the architecture. The people provide scale and the perspective has been well managed. Good colour and saturation and the spider like appearance of the building with its multiple 'legs' and the repetition of the starburst lights add further interest. Tfs!

    Hi Luis

    Good inclusion of the Uruguayan flag at right. Excellent sharpness and soft diffused light. I like the backlight behind the tower. Well composed with the lighthouse placed on the vertical 1/3 axis. Tfs!

    Hello Abmdsudi

    The red part of the woman's sari and the red cloth wrapped package on her head provide striking warm cold color contrasts with the blue sky and blue shawl. Good sharpness and note. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    The 5 day hike through the gorge to Walnut Grove put me off visiting this spot but I am glad you found a quick and easy way to visit! I can well imagine a tiger leaping across onto the rock and then again to the far bank in days gone by. Tfs!

    Good layering in the composition with the fg pool with reeds, the grassy park with trees behind it, the red and grey roofed buildings then the tall cathedral tower and finally the blue sky at the back. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Hello Rob,

    An unusual children's story and a fine sculpture to commemorate it. The whimsical prince sculpture comprised of two spherical globes and in the hangman's noose dominates the scene. The bg mini sculpture and passing woman and the beach are other reference points. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    The seaweed visible at low tide has actually helped the composition here by providing a strong warm cold color contrast with the grey blue sky. Good sharpness and the arched bridge at left adds strong lead in lines. Tfs!

    Hello Beverley,

    The yellow rapeseed, mustard or canola contrasts well with the blue black clouds of the approaching storm. Beautiful reflections on the rippled water surface. The distant duck adds a focal point. Tfs!

    So I don't have to go to Provence in France to see the flowering lavender! Effective tight framing with good sharpness and saturation. Good use of selective focus. Tfs!

    Bonjour Christiane,

    You found a great pov. I've been through Calais twice but never saw this side of the city from the train tracks. The tower at right breaks the repetitive pattern of the red roofs nicely. Tfs!

    Hi Dale

    A good upward pov on the ruined castle, with the stairs providing nice lead in lines. The foliage at right provides a partial border and adds graphism. Tfs!
