    Ciao Silvio,

    Good textural details in the stone facade of the cottage with excellent sharpness and a superb angled view. The sidelight from the right has thrown shadows to the left. Tfs!

    Hello Serge,

    The old stone bridge adds charm and atmosphere. Good reflections and the beached boat at right or rather the boat stuck in the mud at low tide adds a focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Beverley

    I wish now I had gone up the top of at least one of the towers. But it was 40c when I was there & I was feeling lethargic! A wonderful panorama of Firenze! Tfs!

    Bonjour Jean,

    Missed this one. It reminds me of Mirror Lake on the Lake Agnes teahouse trail from Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada. The icy centre resembles an eye. Tfs!

    Hi Huub

    I like the low shooting angle close to the waterline. The arched bridge frames the scene well. Wonderful reflections with good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. Tfs!

    A superb aerial view of the Roman era arena with good sharpness and framing, leaving adequate breathing space right around. It looks just a tiny bit smaller than the one I saw in Nimes. Tfs!

    Hola Angel!

    This superb street scene reminds me of Lisbon in Portugal! Albeit a little less crowded with tourists! I had to look twice at the chair. It is missing a seat! The 2 passing men animate the scene. Tfs!

    Witaj Ryszard,

    Amazing repetition of the boats moored in the harbour with nice reflections in the water and superb sharpness and density levels. The nautical passageway at left clear of boats adds strong lead in lines. Tfs!

    The black cat makes a superb focal point. The blue and white national colors of Greece are in evidence. Good sharpness and saturation. The amber colored frosted glass window sets up a nice warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

    C'est magnifique! J'adore! The pink magenta sunset skies are wonderful and the metallic sculpture adds interest. Good sharpness and just enough shadow detail to discern details. Tfs!

    Hi Danos,

    Nice symmetry is offered by the 2 twin windmills. Their red roofs contrast well against the blue sky. Great to see them in relatively good condition too. Quite a few I saw in Turkey were falling apart. I am aware there has been no maintenance since the 1923 population exchange. Tfs!

    Hello Piotr,

    The fg double arch frames the bg tower beautifully. Good sharpness and the red bricks contrasts well with the cyan sky. The people add scale but the car doesn't do much either positive or negative. Tfs.

    It is just about impossible not to take a good photo in Venice, the city is that photogenic. The bridge over the canal at left makes a good focal point and the tower at right anchors the shot. Tfs!

    Hi Noel

    The wall painting at left of the landscape painter adds charm to this shot. Or should that be a seascape? Good sharpness and the classical old stone castle makes a marvellous backdrop. Tfs!
