    Hello Piotr,

    I will have to explore more of Slovakia when I go back in September. So far I have only spent time in Bratislava. Good sharpness and the colorful fg red flowers add depth and a pleasant warm cold color contrast with the blue sky. The double onion-domed tower at right makes an obvious focal point and is well placed on the 1/3 vertical axis. Tfs.

    Hello Ike!

    I will have to look at a map to see how close I was to seeing this town. I spent some time in Bavaria last year. Good sharpness with attractive warm colors and interesting old sundial at the bottom contrasting well with the clock at the top. The vertical frame works well. Tfs.

    Hello Silvio,

    The dark green segment top right doesn't really bother me but the image looks stronger when it's cropped. Fantastic array of color with good use of a shallow dof and a nice catch of the woman photographer at work. She adds scale and context. Tfs.

    Hello Mariusz

    The weather and lighting were kind to you here. Good density levels with solid blacks and clean whites that give excellent tonal contrasts and superb saturation. The woman in the hot pink sets up an immediate warm cold color contrast against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hi Noel,

    The backlight has been well managed and the silhouetted castle makes an interesting backdrop. Good sharpness and nice sparkles on the water. The diagonal sunbeams add dynamism. Tfs.

    A splendid warm vs cold color comtrast between the ripening yellow-red grain in the fg and the bg blue sky with fantastic sharpness, saturation and color. The few green ears in the fg add depth and layering. The hillside village makes a fine focal point. Tfs.

    Nice reflections in the fg water and the boat is well positioned at the top of the frame. Good color, sharpness and saturation. I like the repetition of the tyres at the top and their dark tones add a nice graphic element. Tfs.

    Hello Nicolas,

    A very pretty scene of the cloud shrouded alps. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts with superb saturation. Fortunately all the volcanic activity is in Italy and to a lesser extent, Greece. The diagonal slopes add dynamism. Tfs.

    Salut Christian,

    Formidable sharpness and impeccable color saturation and framing. Nice impressionist reflections in the tranquil water with the tourist crowds adding scale and animating the scene. I like the diagonal connection between the fg and bg towers. The 3 colourful flags and the crane add focal points atop the buildings. Tfs.

    I have fond memories of Wroclaw and the sharpness and density levels here are excellent. Good colour and saturation also. Nice warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the warm colors of the architecture, especially the red roofs. The fountains and quirky statues add charm and the mother and child at right animate the scene. Tfs.

    Hello Serge,

    Missed this one. Love the graphism of the dark silhouetted people in the fg and the graphic elements added by the black window frames against the well lit lighter toned interior. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The red and yellow either side contrast well against the blue hour sky. Tfs.

    Surprisingly with my knowledge of both English and French I can comprehend the Latin script. Good sharpness and neat tidy framing. Wonderful warm colours of reddish yellow with excellent sharpness, and the Roman numerals add to the effect. Tfs.

    Hi Neyvan.

    Excellent graphic element added by the dark tones of the equestrian statue and its rider against the lighter toned bg sky. Good sharpness and a superb blue sky backdrop. I like the upward pov on the Indian (or Native American for the PC) atop his horse. Tfs.

    Hello Ike,

    This has been a fascinating and educational series. Good sharpness and a fine overview of the ruins. The verdant irrigated fields in the bg contrast strongly against the arid desolate fg. The people add scale and animate the scene, and the rubble hints at the former grandeur of the fortified town. Tfs.
