    Hi Luis
    An idyllic location of a striking cove taken from the best vantage point as the heavenly blue water makes such a huge difference and with an green foliage. Lighting is superb brings out some rich colours, contrast and there's so much to savour the eyes. Great shot, good composition and pleasant to view, Congrats

    Hi Andrew
    Very quaint subject of interest, roofs are often more interesting than the houses below and the architectural details can be more fascinating than the whole building. Superbly detailed and this really brings the character of the place to the image plus a satisfyingly intimate glimpse into somebody's personal life. Exposure seems to be spot on and the rich colour certainly adds punch to the image. Fine capture, Congrats
    P/S Appreciate your critique and the link to your inspirational shot.
    Best wishes

    Hi Mike
    Down memory lane! especially like your last paragraph....
    It's a fine coastal shot with nice lead in with the groynes really brings the whole pic together in full depth perfectly. It works well in monochrome too with a good tonal range and I like the way you've captured the waves coming in and that bit of sky drama there. Your great pov raps it all up into a pleasing image and interpretations of the area. Well done, Congrats

    Hello Aleksander,
    A beautiful building with a fine fountain in front, which would probably interest the small child. The trees frame the view perfectly and there is a very good light shining on the façade. The colours are pleasantly mild.

    Hello Rob,
    I guess that if Donald Trump becomes the next president of the USA they will have to remove this statue, because there will be no hope for anyone. Meanwhile it brightens the street tremendously and the people included here brighten the photo even more. The dark background and the strong light in the foreground makes this a very eye-catching photo.

    Hello Luis,
    You have captured a magnificent view in this photo with a very well handled light. I like the contrasts between the densely forested nearest part and the more "naked" rocks further away. There is also a very nice balance between the green, light blue and dark blue areas.
    Kind regards,

    A romantic and attractive photo with fantastic colours and excellently managed light. The small boat adds a focal-point and is well placed just before it entered the reflected sunlight.

    Hello Silvio,
    You captured a great atmosphere in this fine composition dominated by the beautiful village and the strong diagonals of the hillsides. The clouds or haze surrounding the village have a wonderful effect and make this look a bit like something from a dream or a fairytale. I imagine these old stone houses would be rather cold at a time like this.

    Hello MIke,
    This interesting composition is graphically very attractive thanks to the straight lines and strong contrasts. I like the distant ship and the thick clouds too. The careful PP was worth the efforts.

    Hello Serge,
    Beautiful vehicles, at least the nearest one, in an amusing and attractive composition. I like the curve making the road go along two diagonals with a couple of red cars seen in the distance between the green fields. The photo has very good light and colours and a pleasant atmosphere.

    Hello Huub,
    This is a very cleverly composed photo in a suitable shape that perfectly captures the vertical accent created by the houses climbing up the hill and the tower. The grey sky enhances the mild colours of the walls and the plants growing in the middle area breaks the dominance of grey tones. Here and there are tiny dots of bright colours that are only visible at a very close study of the photo. To sum it up: This is a very good photo. ;-)
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    A slightly dark photo but the colours are marvellous and very well saturated. The yellow and orange tones are superbly reflected with a nice greener in between. It's an excellently composed photo.

    Hello Murat,
    It's an unpretentious but nice composition with fine colors and a good balance between green, brown and white, as well as between nature, architecture and people. The footpaths in the foreground and the steps in the background lead me through the photo. The nearest trees form a very nice "vault",

    Hello Lousat,
    The bricks on the roof and the street create fine patterns that get an added effect from being seen from above. The V is certainly a fine part of the composition, giving it balance and structure. Taking a quick look at the 18 thumbnails on this page I was immediately attracted to this photo because of the original composition.

    Hello Ana,
    This is another good photo from the festival. It is more like a traditional portrait, only the mask makes a big difference. The man is very well placed with the ancient wall and the mossy rocks as a perfect surronding, equally for the colours and the atmosphere. Technically it is also an excellent photo.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jorge,
    It's a very nice composition, where the monkey is an important participant. It is very well placed and somehow underscores the beauty of the architecture and the decorations. I think this photo could have been even better if you had made some very simple processing. I made a workshop to explain what I mean and I hope you won't mind.

    Hello Costantino.
    This is a very nice photo with excellent clarity and sharpness. The perfect POV gives us a fine view of the buildings climbing the two hills and the more distant empty hills between them. It's a very attractive and exciting view with very good colours.

    That's highly compact and chaotic masses of the old dwelling from corner to corner decently captured with great colours, lighting and contrast. Well done.
