    Hi Sam,
    beautiful the sandy beach scenery as lead-in the eye on the far end islet on the backdrop.The teo trunks of the side trees make the image even more effective.

    Hello Ann,
    This is an excellent photo. The beautiful old houses are beautifully reflected and you have "anchored" the composition perfectly in the two red buoys. I get an impression they were left there for the benefit of observant photograpers. They also form a kind of triangle with the top of the church tower. You were blessed with fine weather and a very good light, but a less gifted photographer could probably have wasted such an opportunity anyway.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Noel,
    These are very interesting twin towers, quite beautiful too, and the dark clouds suit them perfectly. They are very nicely reflected in each other, and I also love the reflections at the bottom of the more modest buildings in the vicinity.

    Beautifully composed rural scene abound of interest and light keeping that warm feel appropriate to the scene. Nice angle and perspective and the way you are pulled into the scene amid the peaceful surroundings in its simplicity. The image is pleasantly exposed, great dof with excellent contrast and beautiful clouds to complete the compo. Altogether it's a lovely tranquil. Well done, TFS

    Hi Gert
    Enterprising relaxed woman at work and food for thought, a frame filling colour, a lovely composition and low viewpoint which sets up good impact for the product and the seller. I feel that the bg slightly out of focus really forces the eye to look at her creating a natural working portrait. A fine shot of street life, Well done, Congrats.

    Hello Craig,
    Amazing cars, I wouldn't deny that, and a spontaneous eye-contact could never be wrong. There is nothing wrong with laundry hanging outside the windows either. Even the architecture is fine, or at least it used to be fine. But why did you want to brighten this? I see no need at all for that.

    Hello Christiane,
    This is a great view with remarkable natural colours, possibly improved by the warm afternoon light. The small island would be a fine place for a picnic. The sharpness of the photo is excellent.

    Hello Jasmine,
    The dramatic contrasts of the well lit surface and the pitch black background make the canopy look like floating in space, like a Gothic satellite if any such thing existed. I like how you have cropped it just below the small heads (of prophets, angels?). It's a marvellous work of art and a very good photo.

    Hello Costantino,
    This is a great view of the small town below the mountains. This time of the year the streets look quite empty but there seems to be a crowd of locals at the café to the right. The light and colours are very good and I also like the single red buoy floating in the blue water.

    Hello Malgo,
    You composed this close-up very well by tilting it to create diagonals. This little excerpt of the wall looks a lot better than the entire building with its design of what may be called Soviet modernism.

    Hello Bev,
    This is a great photo. Impromptu shots are usually the best, IMO, provided the photographer has enough time to get the technicalities reasonably right. This one is almost immaculate. There seems to be a slíght tilt, judging from the walls of the ruin, and it would have been even better if the girls had not been so close together. But considering the circumstances these are very minor remarks. I really love the colours and good atmosphere the girls bring, and the surroundings are superb. There's a wonderful contrast between the happy young girls and the gloomy old ruins.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Krzysztof,
    Lots of people in bright clothes assembled in the forest, that was an ideal moment for a photo. The bikers are placed on a diagonal splitting the composition in two parts, and one woman is standing in front of the others creating a superb foreground. The light is excellent and the colours are perfect.
    Kind regards,
