    Hello Silvio,

    Nice greenery. I am missing the greenery of summer and early Autumn. All the trees in eastern Europe appear dead and no sign of any green grass either. Excellent sharpness and a superb exposure on the bright highlights. The tightly clustered stone houses in the village add interest. Tfs.

    Hello Sasha,

    The arch nicely frames the bg scene and I like the shadow play on the roof of the tree branches. Good warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the fg red brick wall and the yellow facade of the house. Excellent sharpness and saturation. Tfs.

    Hello Eleu,

    Fantastic silhouettes of the pelican and the fisherman. I am sure that Bugs Bunny mentioned Pismo Beach at one stage. Superb graphism and a marvelous and colorful sunset with nice orange skies contrasting against the blue grey sea at right. Tfs.

    Hello Ike.

    Nice repetition of the ducks or geese in the mid distance, with good sharpness, color and saturation. The repetitive shape of the trees compliments the scene. I like the cropping and wide angled panoramic perspective. The palm trees top left add variety. Tfs.

    A superb high pov with good sharpness and incredible repetition of the red rooftops and white washed walls of the houses. The large incongruous pine tree right of center helps to break the monotony and also provides a fine focal point and splash of greenery. Tfs.

    Howdy Jean,

    Pompeii is a huge site. I literally walked all around it until my legs were aching and still did not see it all. This brings back nice memories though. Good sharpness and the people add scale. The red patches at left contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hello Wolfgang,

    This looks like a miniature version of the very impressive Parliament Building. You were luckier than me though as you have captured a wonderful blue sky backdrop. It was raining when I was there. The snow adds a good graphic element and the upward pov and sharpness are superb. Tfs.

    It looks like rural Australia, especially with the Eucalyptus trees. They are in their element too as they love water. Punchy light contrasts and excellent sharpness and saturation. The blue sky backdrop is a bonus. The trees help to frame the scene. Tfs.

    Hello Gerrit!

    A good daily life scene from Cuba with the rust red colour of the horse and the peoples skin tones contrasting beautifully against the blue sky. Perfect sharpness and the angled pov on the dirt road adds dynamism and perspective. The purple umbrella is a bonus. It might seem crazy with no rain, but when it is 35c to 40c that sun can be fierce! Tfs.

    The fog adds mood, mystery and atmosphere. I like the soft diffused light and minimalist colors. The tower at the apex of the hilltop village makes a fine focal point. The distant snowcapped peaks provide a sublime backdrop. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. A subtle warm cold color contrast between the pale yellow and blue grey hues. Tfs.

    Hello Rosemary,

    The salmon pink color of the salt lake is striking and contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and a nice exposure on the highly reflective salt. The road at right adds deep lead in lines and perspective and the vehicle makes a fine focal point. Nice repetition of the patterns formed by the dried salt. Tfs.

    Bonsoir Pierre,

    The fg tour crowds add depth and contrast well against the vaguely Indian or Turkish looking tapestry with the elephants. Good warm cold colour contrasts between the red and blue with excellent sharpness. The blue hues in the fg attire of the people enhance the warm cold color contrast. Tfs.
