    Hello Cricri,

    I like the wide angled, panoramic format in this superb landscape. Good sharpness and at first glance the bg white cloud resembles a snowcapped peak. Wonderful colour and saturation. Fantastic warm cold colour contrasts between the red roofs and cyan water and blue sky. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    Superlatives fail me! An astonishing image that would make a fine painting. The 3 sidelit peaks lift an already wojnderful sunset shot to a whole new higher level! Good sharpness and graphism. The blue green horizontal streak on the lower 1|3 axis enhances the color contrast. Tfs!

    Punchy light contrasts with good graphism and sharpness. I like the shallow dof on the fg wall. The sunlit monastery stands out well against the shadowed bg. Excellent shadow detail and realistic colours. The blue mountain peaks contrast well against the reddish yellow church. Tfs!

    Hi Ourania

    I like the simple, minimalist composition. The yellow rusted bollard contrasts superbly against the blue water. Good sharpness and the diagonal line of the wharf adds dynamism. Excellent textural details and punchy light contrasts. Tfs!

    Wonderful reflections with good sharpness and framing. Excellent density levels that have given saturated colours and good light contrasts and exposure. The splash of red at top left contrasts well against the blue sky. The big old tree at right nicely frames the image. Tfs!

    Hi Serge, & greetings from Tromso, Norway.

    A superb landsape of the attractive coastal scene with good sharpness and excelelnt color and saturation. The people on the beach animate the scene and provide scale. I like the forested ridge bereft of hotels. The split fallen rock adds interest. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    Good lighting and graphism with the shadows accentuating the effect. The wide angled panoramic view of the old car suits the image. I think I got a Chevrolet in Copenhagen? Will uplad it when I get back to Poland. A good exposure on the highlights with nice sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo

    This brings back memories! You had a fantastic blue sky to offset the red tones of the impressive church. Good sharpness and a balanced composition. The subtle fg shadow play is nice and the side4lighting excellent. The flowerpots are a new addition since I was there in July 2007. Tfs!

    Salut JJ,

    I like the wide angled panoramic format and the superb warm vs cold colour contrast betweent he reddish brown foliage of the Autumnal trees and the blue sky. Winter comes early in these parts! The 2 bald rocks either side nicely bookend the shot and add balance to the composition. Tfs!

    The dual red brick gates contrast well against the blue sky. Adequate sharpness and smart choice of a vertical format. The bg castle looming over the scene adds a fine focal point and centre of interest. The vegetation frames the whole scene nicely. Tfs!
