    Hello Rob

    The red white and blue colours add a slightly patriotic touch and similarity with the US flag. Good sharpness and superb repetition of patterns and shapes. Tfs!

    Witaj Mariusz,

    I like the repetition of the chequered fg squares of the piazza, contrasting against the blue sky. The people add scale and animate the scene. The flag provides a focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio,

    No words. The tilt accentuates the sense of sliding loss of both people and buildings. Good sharpness and a superb blue sky backdrop. Tfs!

    Ciao Angel,

    The dark fg arch framing the lighter tones structures in the bg adds a nice graphic element. Good sharpness and the blue tiles and red flowers create a splendid warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

    Hi, Costantiono,

    I stopped at a couple of island between Samos and Mykonos and I am pretty sure this was one of them. The lighter toned swirling and churning blue in the fg contrasts well with the dark cobalt blue in the bg. Tfs!

    Hello Ourania

    I like the soft pastel colours and their stark contrast with the bright yellow green seaweed. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The masts of the tall ships add a focal point. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    A good daily life scene of the man tying up the back of the woman's dress with excellent use of a shallow dof. The red and blue colours set up a splendid warm cold colour contrast. Tfs!

    Perfect density & exposure levels that have given ideal saturation and punchy light contrasts with clean whites and solid blacks. Fantastic reflections and the pontoon provides a good focal point. Tfs!

    I saw this bridge off in the distance from near Damascus Gate and wondered what it might look like closer, so thanks for uploading this one. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Hi Stephen,

    Good pp work on the sky. I might have added a little magenta to remove the slight green cyan cast. Excellent sharpness and the overhanging upper floors are reminiscent of Ottoman architecture. The half timbered frame adds graphism. Tfs!

    Hello Gert,

    I have been there. The view of the lake on a clear day is tremendous. Back in the early 2000's they had cablecars to this lookout and back across the lake to a minorities village. The colorful umbrella compliments the group portrait in progress. Tfs!
