    Wow! Such a masterpiece! Love the atmosphere and the delicate lighting, you captured soul of this very calm and peaceful morning. The smoke is making this young lady looking mysterious. Sharp details and wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.

    Hi Mesut,

    I love the glittery texture and light you've picked up in the snow. Hard to convey it sometimes but you've succeeded here! Good sharpness and tonal range in this attractive Christmas card image. The defiant pine tree is holding its own against the wind and snow. Tfs!

    Hello Caleb

    I changed buses there in Red Deer from Calgary to Sylvan Lake back in 2008. Good sharpness and wonderful textural and tonal details in the fg snow. A marvellous blue sky backdrop too. Lens barrel distortion from the wide angle, and perspective have been well managed with the verticals placed centrally. Exactly what I have learned to do. Tfs!

    Hello Neyvan,

    Good capture of this b&w religious procession with good sharpness and excellent tonal range and textural details. The crowds of people add scale and context. And as elsewhere, there are those who need to be surgically removed from their mobile phones as the man at right with unlit cigarette indicates. Tfs!

    Bonjour Ourania,

    Effective tight framing with striking warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue sky, upper red ceiling and lower yellow walls of the crumbling villa. The green curtain completes the color palette. The little Christmas star and Santa is a nice addition in the window. Tfs!

    Bonjour Didi

    Aha, I found one I'd missed. And its a good one too. Superb blue hour shot with wonderful symmetrical reflections and splendid warm vs cold color contrasts between the deep blue sky and the yellow illumination and pale reddish walls of the impressive castle. Tfs!

    Bonjour, chère Cricri,

    The 2 large areas of dark shadows add superb graphic elements, and despite their darkness, there is excellent shadow detail within. Lovely warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and yellow facades of the bg buildings. Looks a little like Nimes. Tfs!

    Hello Ann,

    A fine winter capture from the abandoned ghost town, with the yellow leaved willows contrasting nicely against the blue grey sky. The simple wooden houses in the snow belie the images conveyed by Hollywood of swanky saloons and dusty streets with tumbleweeds. Tfs!

    Hi Eleu,

    The red hides of the wild horses contrast well against the blue shadowed tints in the snow. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. I like the shadow play on the fg snow drift. Good textural and tonal details also that pick out the footprints of a bird or fox. Tfs!

    Hello Sven,

    Good sharpness and I like the framing through the fg sculpture which is reminiscent of the leaves of a pandanus palm. Excellent tonal range and a balanced well composed image. Good graphic elements of the darker spires of the cathedral against the lighter toned sky. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    Spotted this one in your gallery. I like the superb blue skylight reflections in the water and the good symmetry in the composition with the rows of yachts at both left and right . Good sharpness and nice repetition of the masts which add a graphic element against the lighter toned sky. Tfs!

    Hi, Satya,

    A good daily life scene from the local market with nice repetition of patterns shapes and colors. The bread looks fresh and delicious. Excellent shadow detail allowing us to catch sight of some of the vendors. The clothing market behind the bread also looks interesting. Tfs!
