    Bonjour Delphine,
    the repetition of lines and patterns is superb, it creates an irresistible rhythm, which encloses a lot of nuances and is very interesting. Your composition is playful and effective, the fraphism is impressive but the apt light management and the clarity of your picture allow us to see more and consider daily life beyond the graphic surface.
    Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great Sunday,

    Bonsoir Serge,
    Ayios Nicolaos is a city around a harbour, a busy place with lots of houses and traffic. I like very much the peaceful and intimate atmosphere conveyed by your fine picture. Even though the modern houses cannot be avoided in the frame, you rendered their presence quite discreet. The light and the colours have great natural charm and the shade is pleasant as well. The closest boat offers lovely reflections. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Ciao cara Gigi,
    mi piace molto come hai esaltato i particolari caratteristici dell' architettura locale e come le facciate eleganti e colorate riempino lo sfondo come scenografia. Il trattamento dei colori e dei contrasti e' meraviglioso, il parco e gli alberi facciano da cornice e la presenza della signora seduta al banco e' sorpredente ma dopo che la scopriamo, lei fa' parte essenziale della composizione. Mi piace anche l' aereo che passa da lontano. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona domenica,
    Ourania

    Hello dear Mesut,
    an interesting and bold idea to present the stained glass icon through another layer of glass and through "broken" patterns of iron decoration that provide an original and dramatic framing. The shade created by your own figure allows us to have a clear view of the interior, the reflection of the sky is well associated with the religious figure's upward glance. The colours are fine and contribute to the mood too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hi Stephen.

    The red French icebreaker vessel contrasts well against the blue sky. I guess this is part of the Antarctic research ensemble. The angled pov on the ship adds both dynamism and diminishing linear perspective. The blue stripe within the ship itself enlivens the warm cold colour coontrast. Interesting to see what looks like the Chile flag along with the French tricolor and the Australian flag with the Union Jack in the top left corner. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen,
    I like the dynamism and the precision of your presentation. The style of the architecture has classical features and looks conservative but your composition gives it a dynamic and vibrant aspect. There are very fine details on the facades, the sky is well defined and provides an interesting area in the large frame as well as great contrast. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Bev,

    Looks like this big granite boulder has been carved into centuries or even thousands of years ago in prehistoric times. The man at right adds scale. The man made construction at far right in the distance is roughly the same color hue as the rock. The blue sky makes a great backdrop. Tfs!

    Hello Satya,
    the ladies don't seem well protected from the cold, they must be freezing and worried about spending such a moody day on the road and at the market. Your image is wonderful and gives a poetic dimension to the hardship. There's heavy fog and little reference regarding the context, the colours express the mood effectively. The two figures, their loads and their expressions are strikingly eloquent. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hi Satya

    A fantastic daily life scene from the local fruit market with good sharpness and superb shadow detail. I like the woman shopper at left carefully examining the fruit for flaws and imperfections. The green bananas in the bg add interest. Are they used in local cooking? The sunlit section in the =mid distances enlivens the tonal range. Tfs!

    Hi Danos,

    The aquamarine and turquoise colours in the water are lovely. Good sharpness and a marvellous blue sky backdrop. I like the hilltop village in red stone. Nice repetition of the boats along the foreshore. Excellent saturation. the V shaped tongue of land at left features prominently and adds a graphic element agaisnt the lighter sky. Tfs!

    Hello Burak,

    The performers red shirt contrasts well against the bg blue sky to give a pleasing warm vs cold colour contrast. A superb upward pov with impeccable sharpness. Good to have the greenery of the trees at the bottom and not obscuring the man on the highwire. Excellent graphic qualities of the dark wires and poles against the lighter sky. Tfs!

    Hi Craig,

    It was good of Deniz to show you around. The mosque on the horizon at far right adds place and context. Good sharpness and the bright cheerful colours of the boat contrast starkly against the dull grey sky and its reflection in the water. The trash rack float adds interest. I saw a nifty scooping machine in the Bosporus that sucks up all the floating debris in the water and spits out the jellyfish! Tfs!

    Hi Malgo,

    A stunning view of the Rio are coastline. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. One way to cut the haze is to reduce brightness, increase constrast, and boost the saturation. The fg vegetation adds depth as well as framing the scene nicely. The sheltered cove and beach at right looks lovely. Stay cool in the southern summer! Tfs!

    I like the silhouetted pine trees in the mid distance. Their dark forms add a wonderful graphic element against the lighter slopes of the bg mountains. good sharpness and the warm orange glow in the sky top right contrasts well against the predominant grey blue tones to give a nice warm cold color contrast.

    Hello Pierre,

    I like the muted, pastel colours and interesting rustic building partly submerged in the ground with the stone walls and grass covered roof showing. The dried yellow vegetation in the bottom left corner contrasts well against the grey blue sky. I might have cropped a little of the sky to get a 1/3 ratio. Tfs!

    I like the 2 fg ducks in the centre as they animate the shot. The lake and majestic bg mountains make a superb backdrop. The storm adds a dramatic mood to the shot. Amazing repetition of the dark green conifer trees on the forested bg slopes. I like the gradation in the water from yellow to green. Tfs!

    I like the warm sepia toned tints and colors. Goo use of the old stone arch to frame the bg scene. The partially silhouetted man in the red shirt walking towards the bg adds a lot to the shot. The trio at far left just entering the frame nicely counterbalance the solitary man. Tfs!

    Salut Neyvan,

    A superb upward pov on the grandiose old building and perspective has been very well managed. The verticals have wisely been positioned in the centre allowing the tilted far right and far left lines to fall where they will. The tan color of the facade is unusual. Excellent sharpness and the modern highrise at left adds an old vs new theme. Tfs!

    Hello Carlo

    I like the angled pov on the square. The statue makes a fine focal point. The blue sky is a marvellous backdrop and sets up a wonderful warm vs cold colour contrast against the pale orange facade of the building top left. Good sharpness. I like the contrast between the shadowed area at right and the sunlit part at left. Tfs!
