    Hello Jean

    The breaking wave obscuring the fishing pier gives us the impression of an impressionist painting! Good decisive moment hot with excellent sharpness. Tfs!

    Witaj Piotr,

    It looks more like the deck of the Titanic than a mundane shopping centre! Good sharpness and a nice downwards pov. The people provide scale and animate the scene. Tfs!

    Bonjour Michel,

    The row between the 2 lines of sunflowers provides deep linear perspective and converging lines towards the back.m Good sharpness and vibrant colours with the yellow flowers contrasting superbly with the blue sky. Tfs!

    I am not familiar with this city so it is nice to see another side of California. Good sharpness and the warm colors of the wild west style facades contrast well with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Neil,
    I like very much this scene, the selective composition which includes the posters, the picturesque entrance and the people. I like the arrangement of interest within a tight, vertical composition. The colours are superb and convey a serene, exotic, urban atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Good tight framing on the boat with no part of the image wasted. Good sharpness and excellent reflections. The orange cap and red stripe add nice warm cold color contrasts with the blue water. Tfs!

    Hello Mike,
    an elegant and intriguing study on perspective and arrangement of focal points, an attractive composition with very appealing grey tones and mysterious, atmospheric shadows. I also like the wave and the ship moving within the vast, still setting. It's interesting how each of the details seems to be significant both in itself and as a piece of a large puzzle. There's also incredibly much space to project both the story in your note and our own, private thoughts. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,
    Ourania

    Hi Kari

    The brilliant white of the snow enhances the graphism and contrasts well with the darker tones. The red brick walls of the church set up a wonderful warm cold color contrast with the blue sky. The car and people animate the scene. Tfs!

    Bonsoir Nicou,
    the little dog is very cute and stands out as the protagonist of this charming, misty monochrome. I wonder what their "conversation" was:) I like the moderately dynamic perspective and the filling of the frame with elegant trunks and branches. I also like how you managed the softness and brightness of the view, creating a fine, quiet mood. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Ciao Silvio,
    molto interessante questo sito interiore, ricchissimo in fascino e dettagli. Non ti e' sfiggito nessun dettaglio, neanche nello sfondo piu' scuro o nella parte vista attraverso il vetro. I colori sono belli e chiari, la statua e' posizionata molto bene sulla prospettiva piu' forte ed esaltata dall' illuminazione e dal pavimento rosso. Complimenti e grazie!
    Tanti saluti e buona notte,

    Hello dear Takero,
    a lovely, tender and amusing scene, it's irresistible to make up a story out of it. A very effective tight composition that excludes distractions and focuses on the close relationship of mother and child. I like how they are leaning towards each other. Their reflections enrich the scene in a fascinating way, the contrast between warm and "icy" tones is great. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great day,

    Hello Rob,
    I like very much the graphics of the artwork, you captured the scene with superb clarity and rich, attractive colours. The dark backdrop is great, it works even better in the alternative composition in the workshop. I like the details and the human presence around the famous symbol. I wonder what it means to each of the people caught in your frame. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Bonsoir Christophe,
    amazing how long the existence and the history of this abbey is, the way you are presenting it is wonderful. I like very much this simple composition from a distance, the "empty" space has fine, graduating tones and is very lovely, conveying absolute serenity. I also like the rich warm tones and the mysterious shadows. The reflection and the summetrical effect are brilliant too. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hello Noel,
    your picture is superb and will surely encourage any viewer's impression that this is a cathedral:) The church looks even more imposing due to its placement high within the frame, so much larger than any of the surrounding buildings. The reflection is magnificent, it makes the scenery really enchanting. Also the warm highlights set off some of the church's most significant features. The rich blue tones create a lovely, serene environment. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hi Ricardo,

    It looks like tropical north Queensland in Australia right down to the fg banana tree leaves. Good density levels and color saturation. Nice reflections & the bridge makes a great focal point. Tfs!
