    Hi Ike,

    A superb reflection with the grid pattern of the modern highrise adding graphic elements and framing of each individual square. I like the distorted patterns and their variety. Good sharpness and attractive minimalist colors of blue and grey. Tfs.

    Hi Marc,

    Nice motion blur from the long time exposure on the water that has given a soft a silky look. Good sharpness elsewhere and a wonderful warm cold color contrast between the faint orange-pink sunset colors and the predominant blue tones. Tfs.

    The heat haze is palpable here. Good sharpness and the arid desert environment is well illustrated. A nice warm cold color contrast between the red earth and the blue sky. Both jets are well placed on the 1/3 axis. Tfs.

    Hello Nicolas,

    The piles of stone sculpture reminds me of a Mongolian custom of placing a stone atop a pile before embarking on a long voyage to bring good luck and a safe passage across the desert sands and rocky, arid terrain. Nice reflections and a fine zen mood. Tfs.

    Hi Malgo

    2 for the price of 1! A real bargain with these 2 lovely rainbows! Good sharpness overall. It looks like it was windy as the fg bushes are motion blurred. Beautiful color and saturation. Well composed with the horizon line on the lower horizontal 1/3 axis. Tfs.

    Hi Pavle,

    A nice contrast between the rounded logs and the chopped firewood. Good sharpness and each of the 2 images compliments the other. Somebody has been very busy with the axe. They deserve a warm and cosy winter for their efforts! Tfs.
