    Hello Mariusz,
    such an interesting composition with the curved dock and sea gulls in the FG adding a nice feeling of depth to the shot.
    The three buildings dominate the scene being wonderfully well lit and pin sharp. Nicely done indeed.

    Hello Luciano,
    the warm tones and repeating graphic shapes make this such an attractive photograph with many interesting details to enjoy.
    There is a very pleasing balance to the photo with the harsh light well handled.

    Hello Agoes.
    a beautiful photograph that has been expertly composed with the boat perfectly placed in the frame,the long shutter speed has turned the water to silk whilst the morning colours are simply divine.
    Stunning photography.
    My best regards Les.

    Hello Bev,
    the upright format works very well in allowing us to view not only the nicely formed reflection but also the BG environment.
    If you get any where near PL16 whilst in this part of the world you`re welcome to get in touch if time allows.
    Kind regards Les.

    Hello Stephen,
    The walled city certainly dominates the scene pictured against that lovely clear blue sky but almost as impressive is the massive stone wall that passes nicely across the vertical corners.

    Hello Trevor,
    as you know I`m a fan of BW so I enjoy this version very much, especially the sky,the tilted boat is well placed to give depth to the picture and helps add to the timeless look.

    Hello Denis,
    a very imaginative view past the flowers and through the foliage into the Golfe gives the picture such a very nice depth and you have managed to keep the details pin sharp throughout.
    Everything is in the right place in a perfect composition.
    Warm regards Les.

    Like in this superb composition where the splendid sky is an important feature .

    Hello Craig

    I will have to add this place to my bucket list next time I am in the Naples area. The yellow cupola on the horizon contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and well composed. Nice fg reflections in the sea and the men on the small fishing boats animate the scene. The bg castle adds interest. The outdoor dining area with people at left balances the composition. Tfs!

    Hello Resat

    Well composed shot here with good sharpness, colour and saturation. The red flowers contrasts well against the blue grey colours. Nice reflections in the wet pavement. The bg building reminds me a little of the 7 sisters building in Warsaw. Nice repetition of the gold statues. The path adds strong lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Tfs!

    Bonjour Christiane

    A superb sunset with good sharpness and excellent composition utilising the rule of thirds, with good sharpness and superb saturation. I like the z shaped cloud illuminated above the setting sun. The dark tongue of rocky shoreline at right adds a nice touch of graphism. Excellent warm cold color contrasts between the blue grey and orange hues. Tfs!

    A simple minimalist shot with a superb backdrop of blue sky. Good sharpness and the diagonal tilt of the wings adds interest. The red nose of the light aircraft contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Daniel

    Smart choice of a vertical frame with superb use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point provided by the converging dual lines of the narrow street. The red flag contrasts well against the blue sky to give a nice warm vs cold color contrast. The car and people are well placed near the back vanishing point. Tfs!

    Hello Ourania

    Effective tight framing with clever use of the strong diagonal in the composition, nicely bisecting the image into two. Good warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue as well as the yellow fishing nets. I like the contrast in textures and shapes of the ropes, wooden side of the boat and the fishing net draped over the side. Impeccable sharpness and excellent color and saturation. Tfs!
