    Hello Pierre

    A good close up of the cyan green tinted icebergs in the bay. Good sharpness and natural looking colour. I might have cropped a little from the bottom to exclude the portion of white iceberg cut in two. The yellow green shelf submerged in shallow water adds interest here. Tfs.

    Cześć Ryszard

    Effective tight framing with good sharpness and nice subtle warm cold color contrasts between the yellow and blue tones. The green pot plants at the bottom add life and interest. Good repetition of patterns and shapes. The Ionic styled Greek columns frame the centre nicely. Tfs.

    Hi Sasha

    Well managed interior lighting. Just a hint of green from the fluorescent overhead lights. Easy to mask or reduce by adding magenta. A pleasant diffused light and the group of art connoisseurs discussing the art, admiring in silence or following audio guides, adds interest. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with natural looking color. Tfs.

    Hello Daniel,

    Lovely warm versus cold colour contrasts between the blue and yellow with good sharpness and saturation. I like the tall vertical format. The 2 old fashioned fishing boats make ideal focal points in the fg. The diagonal esplanade at right adds dynamism, and the people strolling along it add scale. Tfs.

    Czesc Malgosiu!

    Looks like a cool retreat on a hot summers day. Good sharpness and I like the square format. Excellent sharpness and the greenery is soothing. The women chatting animate the scene. The blue shutter at left contrasts nicely against the yellow doors in the centre. The birdcages add interest. Tfs.

    Hi Noel

    The red brick ruins of the building are well positioned just left of centre and the 2 dark, gaunt and leafless trees behind it add a nice graphic element. Good sharpness and the lush green grass is well saturated. It must rain here a bit. The stone fence enclosure adds interest. The 2 birds circling caught my eye. Tfs.

    Bonsoir Jean

    The warm late afternoon sunlight striking the rock at right does indeed give a warm golden glow. Good sharpness and excellent saturation. The yellow orange color tones contrast superbly against the blue sea and sky. The fishing structure adds interest. Good timing to get the breaking wave. Tfs.

    Hi Burak,

    I just walked up the stairs that zig zag up the cliff outside and did not know about this secret cave approach. It reminds me of the tunnels at Amasya near Ankara that go up to the old cliff side tombs. Your ghostly shadow adds mood. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue tints and good repetition of the steps. Tfs.

    Hello Roger

    Vienna was perhaps my favorite city in Europe. Florence and Venice are right up there too and tie with Vienna. Everywhere I looked there was something old and ornate and interesting. As depicted here. Good sharpness and the people animate the scene. I got quite addicted to the Austrian torte cakes too with their crunchy caramelized fillings. The 2 bg statues add interest here. Tfs.

    Hello Pierre

    Superb warm cold color contrasts between the blue bed and the red tinted floor and walls, with excellent sharpness. I like the angled pov and the Louis 16th Sun king mural in the bg at right. A nice angled pov showing 2 facades of the elaborate bed. Tfs.

    A colourful daily life scene within the book store. Good sharpness and density levels that have given vibrant saturation, clean whites and solid blacks together with punchy light contrasts. The Hindi text at the back adds place and context. Tfs.

    The old colonial style building still has a seedy tropical charm despite its run down and neglected appearance. Good sharpness and saturation. The travellers palm at left and the banana trees at right enhance the tropical look and mood. Tfs.

    A wonderful blue sky that contrasts well against the yellow facades of the town buildings, with the reflected blue skylight in the fg water enhancing the effect. Good sharpness and saturation. The rusty iron structure at right the bridge and the yacht all add interest. Tfs.

    Hi Serhan

    Missed this one. Smart choice of a vertical format to accentuate and emphasise the height and tallness of the steeple. Good nocturnal shot with excellent sharpness, doubly difficult at night. The yellow illumination provides clear details of the structures shapes forms and textures. Tfs.

    Hi Murat

    I noticed that all of the e letters in TE critiques were replaced with question marks. Along with gras in French also replaced with a question mark. I tried replacing the Turkish I in Ibraham with an A but that did not work either. The bug or virus seems to have been fixed but is back. Anyway I tried chestnuts in Turkey but much preferred the mussels dried figs baclava and Turkish delight. Miss them now that I am no longer there. A superb daily life scene. I like the blue vs yellow color contrast and the reflection. Tfs.

    I like the mirroring of the 2 bg arches at left with the 2 fg arches at right. Good repetition and sharpness and a superb warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue sky and the yellow half circles of the clocktower at left with the flag atop it. The people add scale and a dimension size. Tfs.

    Hi Bulent

    Not all is as it seems. I saw a similar levitation trick in Prague. Hope that basketball hoop seat is padded! It would be very uncomfortable sitting up there for a couple of hours! Still, this is a common sight across Europe that still manages to enthrall the passing crowds. Good sharpness and sorry to anyone if I killed the magic. Tfs.

    Hello Silvio

    Missed this one. The diagonal slope of the terrain falling from right to left adds dynamism to the shot. Good sharpness and the ruined tower at the top and the central tower in the heart of the village make good dual focal points. The patches of snow on the roofs enhance the graphic elements. Tfs.
