    Hello Noel,
    an interesting combination of themes, must be one of the reasons that make the character of the city unique. I like how the skyline extends across the frame, the area behind it and some of the buildings immersed in the fog. The foreground is attractive and intriguing, the urban graphism and the bright colours so much influenced by the gloomy weather and its results. I also like the dynamic division of the view in two parts as well as the graffitti colours that refuse to fade. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Hi Aleksander

    The solitary bird in the sky makes a fine focal point. Good sharpness and an nice warm cold color contrast between the grey blue sky and the red tiled roof. The workman seems unconcerned by the height. The 2 borders in the fg add a nice frame. Tfs.

    Bonsoir Serge,
    this presentation has great clarity and perspective, fine balance and a lovely atmosphere thanks to the play of light and shadows. The red carpet adds a story and a sense of anticipation, there's a sweet melancholy to the scene that I like a lot. You balanced the colours very aptly and they play a great role in the overall appeal of the photo. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great evening,

    Hello Ryszard,

    The yellow and orange support structure parts of the bridge contrasts wonderfully against the blue sky in the bg along with the red magenta colored fg path. Good sharpness and well composed with good breathing space right around. The low horizon line and big sky work well here. Tfs.

    Hi Ike,

    The dual banks of the stream add natural lead in lines and deep perspective with the converging banks leading off to the top left. The rustic walkway enhances the scene. Good colour and sharpness with splendid saturation. Nice reflections in the creek. Tfs.

    Bonsoir Cricri,
    a very attractive and delightful view of the marina in Calvi, I like your decision to use a panoramic frame and include so many boats and details in it. You measured and balanced your composition very effectively, allowing much space to the sky and the reflections, framing the marina in a fine way. The strong contrasts, the shadows and the clouds surrounding the boats add drama to the atmosphere and a fascinating character to the marina. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a great Sunday,

    Hi Stephen

    Looks a little like the Golden Horn in Istanbul from this angle. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation with superb reflections. The small traditional yellow fishing boat at right grabs my attention. Good framing and composition with the sloping terrain adding dynamism and perspective. Tfs.

    Hello Achim,
    even though I've never been there, I think that this view must look much different nowadays. I like your picture both for the interesting description it offers us and for its graphic value. You found a simple and effective way to distinguish the foreground and the perspectives taking us to the focal points in the background do their job wonderfully. The lighting and the colours are atmospheric take us to the past. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a good night,

    Bonjour Neyvan

    I remember this scene was on a postcard enclosed in the Pink Floyd album 'Wish you were here'. An enigmatic scene for sure. Good colour, sharpness and saturation. Nice reflections, interesting cloud patterns and strangely shaped rocks. Tfs.

    Bonsoir Juliette,
    I like this busy and eloquent scene, there's a lot to observe and study within the frame and all in excellent clarity. You captured the scene with delightful natural colours and the wintry sunlight is sweet and pleasant. I like the spontaneity of your capture as well as the fact that the scene expands beyond the frame borders. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Serge,

    The blue grey and white colors go exceptionally well together here. Good sharpness with superb reflections in the placid water. The tree at top left adds depth and layering and a splash of green. Good repetition of the stone arches in the bg bridge at left. Tfs.

    Nice repetition of the white swans with a good exposure on their white highlights. Good sharpness and saturation with nice reflections in the bg lake. The jagged alpine peaks make a wonderful backdrop. The tiered embankment at left adds good perspective. Tfs.

    I only spent 10 minutes in LA, and hopped straight onto a bus to Yosemite. Excellent sharpness and I have flown from Moldova to Bucharest to Vienna and am now in the Czech Republic. A nice blue hour shot from the airport. A superb exposure on the white highlights with pinpoint sharpness. Tfs.

    Hello Achim,

    The Maya pyramid painting on the roof is eyecatching and the red brown color around it contrasts well against the blue sky. The people passing by animate the scene and provide scale. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The geometric square motif reminds me of Chinese motifs. Tfs.
