    Hi Hunkar

    I've sat out on the upper floor terrace of the Shake Shack a few times with a meal and drink admiring the Bosporus. Good sharpness and the distinctive red tram adds a nice warm cold color contrast agaisnt the blue grey asphalt. And this is Beyoglu too. I initially and wrongly thought it was still Taksim. Tfs.

    Hello Christiane!

    Missed this one. All work and no play! The elderly man with the walking stick animates the scene. Wonderful use of the fg arch as a framing device. The bg blue sky contrasts well against the yellow facade of the building. The multicolored leadlight window at left adds interest. Tfs

    Hello Cricri,

    The dark fish-trap against the lighter toned wall adds a marvellous graphic element. Good sharpness and effective tight framing with no part of the scene wasted. The undulating red tiles in profile at the top contrast well against the blue sky. Excellent textural and tonal details in the crumbling and peeling wall. Tfs.

    Hello Serge,

    Missed this one. Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the orange sunset skies and the blue hues, enhanced by the red roofs of the lighthouse and storehouses at right to give a superb warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Perspective has been well managed placing the verticals centrally. Tfs.

    Hello Maria,

    A superb daily life scene of the boy seated in front of the the mother and baby section of the wall mural. Striking colors of red and yellow tapering off to blue at the top. The b&w charcoal like sketch of the couple at left with what looks like the local equivalent of Pringles, balance the composition. Tfs.

    Bonjour mon cher ami Philippe

    Well composed using the rule of thirds with good sharpness and natural looking colour. The two conical towers nicely bookend and frame the shot. Effective tight framing and superb sidelight and shadow detail. The fg shrubs add depth and a splash of greenery. Tfs.

    Hello dear Lisa

    Seems Australians are now living in a fascist State. It's good to see you still popping in to TE from time to time. Its all about the minerals and natural resources on the land that the greedy multinational companies want unfettered access to without having to pay indigenous people any royalties. The sooner this Neo liberal Con government supporting this land grab is gone, the better. The gum leaves are making me homesick. The analogy of "where there's smoke there's fire" comes to mind in this image.

    Hello Gerrit,

    A superb daily life scene of the three women, with good sharpness and realistic color. Effective tight framing and well framed and composed. The old man at right seems detached from the older woman. Maybe they had a minor argument? Then again he looks more Spanish than African in descent. He might be just a next door neighbor in a town house arrangement. Tfs.

    Hi Sasha,

    Punchy light contrasts on account of the superb density levels. Realistic saturation and I like the angled pov on the tombstone showing 2 facades. Excellent shadow detail and nice repetition of the green painted gate columns in the bg. Tfs.

    Hello Ghislaine

    I love the symmetrical reflection in the water. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the yellow, red roofs, and the blue. The diagonal rail-slip adds dynamism. I like the shadow play on the far door at left. Tfs.

    Hello Wolfgang,

    Excuse me while I grab a facemask! The monochromatic brown color is indicative of the sandstorm. Must be hard to breathe in such conditions. A superb daily life scene with excellent sharpness. I like the repetition of the palm trees. Tfs.

    Well composed using the rule of thirds with a colorful sunset backdrop and nice fg reflections in the pool. The 2 silhouetted coconut palms at left add a distinctive tropical mood and atmosphere. Nice warm cold color contrasts in the sky between the blue and orange hues. Tfs.

    Good reflections in the shiny, Burgundy red colored car with excellent sharpness and the bg bridge making a fine secondary focal point. Nice repetition of the lampposts. There is a nice warm cold color contrast between the bg blue sky and the red car. Tfs.

    Effectivement, il est bien difficile de rester indifférent à la "bête" présentée.
    Le rêve est toujours permis, et en plus, il ne coûte pas cher !

    Hello Eleu

    A simple composition, but strong and attractive. Good sharpness and superb warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the streak of yellow wildflowers, possibly dandelions. The dark tree at left adds a nice graphic element as well as a center of interest and focal point. Tfs.

    A very Middle Eastern or Indian looking building with an attractive color scheme of blue, white and silver. Excellent sharpness and saturation. Nice to see a clear blue sky. I like the repetition of the patterns along the wall at left. The people enliven the scene. Perspective has been well managed. Tfs.
