    The bridge makes a superb centrepiece and its pale yellow-red color contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness throughout. Nice reflections in the river. Superb repetition of the bridge spans. Tfs.

    Hello Ike,

    A striking warm cold color contrast between the deep blue Mediterranean and the red tanker. A nice juxtaposing of the small yacht at left against the larger ship at right. I like te wide angled panoramic crop. Tfs.

    Howdy Eleu,

    Love the amazing repetition of the ripple patterns in the sand, as well as the superb warm vs cold color contrast between the blue sky and yellow red sand. The thin sliver of dark blue Pacific Ocean nicely separates the 2. Tfs.

    Bonjour Serge,

    Looks a little like Romania, Rasnov Fort or Sibiu perhaps? Good warm cold color contrasts between the red-tiled roof of the conical tower and the bg blue sky. Excellent sharpness and the storks nest atop the tower adds charm and interest. The red flowers add a splash of color. Tfs.

    Hello Klaudio,

    Nice to see another painting from Melbourne other than Chloe at Young and Jacksons. I like the interaction between the viewer at right and the painting. Good sharpness and a superb warm cold color contrast between the yellow toned artwork and blue-grey surroundings. Tfs.

    Bonjour Philippe

    I like the minimalist color and strong graphic elements between contrasting light and dark tones. Nice repetition of the bracket fungi on the dead tree and fantastic reflections in the water. The dead tree adds natural lead in lines and perspective. A subtle warm cold color contrast between the yellow green moss and blue reflected skylight. Tfs.

    Hi Stephen,

    Possibly a little camera shake but it's difficult to get enough light inside these dark and gloomy interiors for perfect sharpness. Do you have 'museum setting' on your camera? I find that helps sometimes as well as removing any filters. Anyway the color contrasts between the red and blue are wonderful and the ornate decorations superb. Tfs.

    Hi Silvio,

    Missed this one. Nice use of the fg arch as a framing device. Good sharpness and the fg path adds deep lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. Attractive pastel colors. The pale red bricks contrast well against the blue sky to give a pleasing warm cold color contrast. Tfs.

    Hello Pierre,

    The old car looks almost vintage even though it only dates from the 80's. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with plenty of breathing space right around. I might have cropped 1/2 of the fg for a more wide angled panoramic crop. Tfs.

    The rust red ship in the river is eyecatching and sets up an immediate warm cold color contrast against the bg blue sky. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the moored boats at right. A superb high vantage point. The yacht at left in the bottom corner adds strong lead in lines and dynamism with its diagonal alignment. Tfs.

    Hello Ike.

    Although native to South America, these jacaranda trees also grow well in east coast Australia from about Sydney north into Queensland. They flower in October and remind students it's time to study for the looming exams! Good color, sharpness and saturation. I like the wide angled panoramic crop. Tfs.

    Ciao Luciano

    It's reassuring that there is an emergency clinic at the top of the steep stairs! They need one in Stepanplatz in Vienna, which has over 330 steps. I visited Tallinn last year and liked it a lot. The tower at left and the newly refurbished Orthodox church at right add complementary focal points and frame the image well. Tfs.

    The canal, boats, bridge and color are all reminiscent of Venice. Fantastic reflections with good color, sharpness and saturation. Superb warm cold color contrasts between the red, yellow and blue sky. The red and cyan colors enhance the effect. Tfs.

    Hello Kari,

    A fabulous alpine lake but the water must be just above freezing point is they are wading rather than swimming. Still a lovely spot on a warm to hot summer's day. A marvellous backdrop of forested and even snowcapped peaks. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs.

    Hello Nicolas!

    A wonderful bucolic scene with the contented-looking cows well dispersed around the frame. Good sharpness and the lush yellow green meadows contrast well against the blue sky to give a nice warm cold color contrast. The big conifer tree makes a fine focal point. Excellent composition and framing. Tfs.

    Ciao Malgorzata,

    Fantastic reflections and the clarity of the pristine looking water is superb. The fg flowers adds depth and layering as well as a welcome splash of color and a partial frame. Good repetition of the pier pylons. The fishing boat and dinghy add focal points. Tfs.

    Fantastic warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue and yellow, and the red path, with excellent sharpness. The people animate the scene. Good saturation and effective tight framing. The Corinthian style neo Greco-Roman columns add interest and repetition. Tfs.

    Hi Danos

    There must be a different island for every day of the year in Greece and then some! I've been fortunate enough to visit a couple dozen of them. Visitors and locals are spoilt for choice! Wonderful reflections with good sharpness and saturation, with nice repetition of the colorful moored boats. Tfs.

    Hello Brenda,

    I see the bird. A superb modern art-piece that connects with the viewer. Modern artists don't always succeed, but here they have. The wonderful reflections and the superb sharpness enhance the shot. The 2 ladies conversing at left contrast well with the solitary guy at right on his mobile phone. Tfs.

    Good textural and tonal details in the unpainted and unlacquered wood, with superb sharpness. The diagonal viewpoint adds interest and the open window shutters provide a perfect focal point. The minimalist color works well here. Tfs.
