    Hi Jean
    That ancient edifice grabs the eye so strongly from the thumbnail! but what a jaw-dropping contrast it turns out to an idyllic greenery of the setting. It's very well detailed, crisp throughout with a good composition and lovely saturation. Great effort on your part to get a real cool shot like this. Congrats

    Hi Ally
    You are wise with the framing by having more of the foreground interest leading the eye to the watch tower and lovely how the wavy line makes a great link to keep the eye into the perspective. Great compo, rich in colors and detail aplenty. Grand piece of ancient edifices adequately capture with excellent result.. Congrats

    Hello Abmdsudi,.
    You have photographed this elderly man from an original low angle (maybe another shot from your hip). It's a fine document of the old age of the man as well as the rather dilapidated building. The old house doesn't look good in a conventional way, but for the photo I love the pattern of irregularly sized squares and rectangles with various gritty colours. It looks a bit like some kind of modern art applied to an old building in rural China. Maybe a surprising reaction,. but the look of the wall is one reason why I really like this photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Cascia
    That's an excellent night shot with the glowing light, colours and depth with some eye catching elements conveying the feeling of the old town on the hill top. You must be very pleased with how this came out given the condition, and thank to your additional pictures. Very well done shot, Congrats.

    Ciao Luciano,
    great the clarity and the sharpness of the beach of Mahdia with the lot of shells to almost cover it.The lonely wet feather placed perfect in the frame is the eye catching of the scene.Excellent the light and the colour management of the scene.

    Hi Ryszard
    Interesting write up with these identical small 'eyes' i think essentially high up so the wealthy people could easily observe the happenings below while unseen from the outside. Lovely olde worlde, a well spotted shooting chance there with good slim orientation creating an intriguing graphical quality. Lovely catch, Congrats. TFS

    Hi Serge
    An extremely colourful harbour scene with the huge ferry boat attracts as supporting interest while focus is still of the imposing Statue. Lovely juxtaposition, brightness is manageable and above all vividness of detail and colours works superbly. Excellent capture, Congrats

    Hi Krzysztof
    I love colour saturation and contrast, abandoned yet there's still beauty in it - could conjure up a thousand stories with loads of appeal. Detail and the intense deep colours are just marvellous, you've conveyed the feeling of desolation and beauty that never ceases to fascinate a keen sharp shooter. Congrats and tfs

    Hello John,
    I am as fascinated by these "blue hour" photos as many other members of this site, but I would never take a picture like this. Not because it wouldn't be fun but because I couldn't ever imagine carrying a tripod on my journeys. ;-) But I understand it could be worth the trouble, because the effect of dark blue sky and warm yellow light is often captivating, at least if the view as such is attractive. And this place is really perfect for this kind of photo with the lights so beautifully reflected in the black water. But although my attention is immediately drawn to the buildings at the end of the bay I am actually even more fond of the lower left corner showing a part of the marina and the walkway along the water. The colours are not as spectacular, but maybe because it's so much closer I can more easily identify with someone walking there in the romantic light of the night.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    The bubbles makes this photo unique. As Will noted the stand of the girl is a bit awkward, but her smile seems hones even if she finished her fries. Nice, candid street shot.

    Hello Alexandre,
    I could not ask for a more perfect beach of soft sand, trees and beautiful colours. Maybe there are big hotels and noisy bars just outside this view, but here you make it look like Paradise. For this composition the huge and compact cloud plays an important role as a balance to the turquoise and pink colours below. You found a good spot on the hill for this very nicely composed photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Excellent photo, composing this ship into the picture was indeed a good idea, it creates a tension between the modern buildings of the background and the old-school ship in the foreground.
