    Hello Roger

    Coincidentally I also posted a shot from Austria today. I remember similar scenery around Salzburg and Innsbruck. Good colour saturation and excellent sharpness and framing. Smart choice of a vertical frame. The cloud patterns in the blue sky add interest. Vienna is only an hour south of me so when I get some free time I might go back there one day. Still have Brno and Ostrava in the Czech Republic to explore. Maybe over Easter? Tfs.

    Hello Murat,

    The nearly square format works well here. Good sharpness and shallow dof on the giraffe. Excellent colour and saturation with superb composition and framing. I've never been to central or southern Africa or even the Taronga Park Zoo in Sydney although I recall seeing a real giraffe at Melbourne Zoo in Australia. Tfs.

    Hi Francesco,

    Wow! A fantastic view of Mt Etna volcano covered in snow with good sharpness and a wonderful clear blue sky as a backdrop. I noticed Mt Ararat also generated its own weather with the same roll cloud depicted here. The uniform height of the apartment blocks adds symmetry and repetition. Tfs.

    Ciao Carlo,

    I like the sharpness in the fg gradually diminishing to soft focus in the bg. Good color added by the wildflowers. Superb saturation and smart choice of a vertical format. The yellow dandelions contrast well against the blue flowers to give a nice warm vs cold color contrast. Tfs.

    I like the red ^ shaped roof contrasting against the blue sky aloong with the orange red soil in the gaps between vines. Good sharpness and excellent framing and composition. Good use of diminishing linear perspective with the converging lines of the vineyards. Nice repetition of the cloud patterns. Tfs!

    I like the repetition of the paired, square windows. Good sharpness and the minimalist colours work well here. Excellent graphic elements of contrasting dark and light tones with a pleasant diffused light. Tfs.

    Hi Denis!

    It looks similar to a passion-fruit flower and the density levels are superb. They've given solid blacks and clean whites along with good saturation and excellent lighting contrasts. Effective tight framing and wonderful backlight through the translucent like yellow green leaves. Tfs.

    Hello Craig,

    Incredible repetition of the tulip? flowered white columns with impeccable sharpness and the solitary man walking towards the camera animates the scene and provides scale. Nice symmetrical reflections in the floor. What's not to like in this shot? Tfs.

    Bonjour Serge,

    A superb warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue sky and the red brick chimneys. Excellent sharpness and the dual sides of the complex add splendid lead in lines and linear perspective towards the back. Goo repetition and textural details of the fg flagstones. The jet trails in the blue bg sky add interest. Tfs.

    Salut Denis!

    I like the cross shaped stance of the white Jesus statue atop the bg building, contrasting against the outlined cross on the fg church. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with natural looking colour. Excellent shadow detail in the bg hill. The red roofs and red brown door contrast well against the grey blue cloudy sky. Tfs.

    Hello Mesut,

    Nice repetition of the fg pigeons and a superb interaction between the small boy and his vertical alignment to the horizontal direction of the birds. Good sharpness and excellent sharpness and textural details in the flagstones. I like the top-light from the top right throwing long shadows to the left. Tfs.

    Hello Sasha

    I have to agree and often those same people scream the loudest that nobody ever visits their gallery (untrue) and that more people should be looking and critiquing their photos. It is good of you to be so forgiving. And it doesn't matter where a photo is taken. It is possible to take an outstanding photo right in our own backyard, virtually under our noses. It's not always necessary to travel to the other side of the world like I have. You would be surprised how many things are the same, such as plants, people, architecture. Sure there are differences but they are not always present. This superb window shot could have been taken in Australia or New Zealand. I like the tilt, and it adds dynamism. Tfs.

    A nice catch of the flowering almond trees with their distinctive white flowers. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. The dried yellow brown tussock grass contrasts well against the hazy blue bg mountains to give a pleasing warm cold colour contrast. Tfs.

    The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing a double perspective of the architecture of the building. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

    L'étendue de la cour intérieure donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de cette partie du château de Fontainebleau. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.

    A fantastic nocturnal shot from Moscow with good sharpness and wonderful symmetrical reflections. The red and blue lights set up an excellent warm cold colour contrast. Nice repetition of the green spires topped with red insignia. Tfs.
