    Bonjour Philippe,

    A superb interior shot of the cathedral with excellent sharpness and shadow detail. The colourful stained glass window stands out against the sombre grey and dark tones. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    Good shadow detail in the shaded part of the church entrance. Excellent sharpness and the leafless trees and green shrubs tell us it is Spring. Tfs!

    It looks like a cool shady and leafy retreat from the relentless summer heat. Good sharpness and framing with excellent shadow detail. The strong light contrasts have been well managed. Tfs!

    Hello Paul,

    The 2 horseshoe shaped yellow green rows of trees contrast well with the blue sky to give a nice warm cold color contrast. I like the elevated vantage point. Tfs!

    Hi Noel,

    A superb upward pov on the 2 statues seemingly illustrating 2 lonely souls reaching out for each other, made all the more poignant from several disasters in the area. Good sharpness and graphism. Tfs!

    Hello Serghei,

    The rooster looks like it was actually in the frame at the time and not photoshopped into the image afterwards. Good comparison of the stone sculpture bird at left with the rooster at right. Tfs!

    Hello Serge,

    Not the most talented graffiti I have ever seen but the sum of the parts makes an interesting photo. The graffiti in Europe and Turkey is superior. The blank space on the window shutter at the top adds interest. Tfs!

    Hello Ruben,

    Fantastic symmetrical reflections in the mirror like water that resemble a watercolour painting with the soft pastel colours. Good sharpness and the red bridge at left adds lead in lines. Good depth and layering too. Tfs!

    Bonjour, mon ami Jean,

    Lol. Considering that there is only one trail, that is visible, the title is quite amusing. The sharpness is excellent and the 2 fish trap structures add a centre of interest. Tfs!

    Nice repetition of the cream posts and black ornately decorated rails at left, and the diagonal placement in the frame adds dynamism. The yellow at right and red roof at left contrast well with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hi Lars

    A good idea to invert the image and it resembles an abstract impressionist painting. The reflection of the building is superb. Good sharpness and nice colour and saturation. Nice repetition of the ripple patterns. Tfs!

    Hello Rob,

    The bright blood red Amor sign contrast well with the blue cyan shadows of the bg to give a superb warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and nice use of a shallow dof. The yellow & pink magenta colors add to the color palette. Tfs!

    Hello Noel,

    The pedestrian footbridge makes a fine focal point and the man and girl add scale and animate the shot. I am intrigued by what looks like a floating mountain peak poking up above the layer of fog. Tfs!
