    Ciao Silvio,

    Now I wish that I had gone inside! I did walk around the outside and Sienna reminded me of Firenze. A lot. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the b&w columns. Tfs!

    Hello Jean

    I like the symmetry of the 2 stone lions and the repetition of the water droplets in the fountain. The zig zag pattern of the green topiary hedge also inexorably draws the eye towards the bg stairs. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    Good linear perspective here with the fg lines of the green lawn leading the eye towards the back of the image. Good sharpness and framing. I like the alternating dark and light tones of green too. Tfs!

    Nice repetition of the cabins with the more substantial stone church with its 2 towers and 8 turrets providing a fine focal point. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    Hello Gert,

    The best lasagna I ever had was in Czech Republic. It had a creamy mushroom sauce topping. Anyway the restaurants here reminded me of my 3 month sojourn there. Italian cuisine is deservedly very popular. This town was a bit too far north of me for a daytrip though. Good framing and symmetry. Tfs!

    Hello Nicolas,

    The reddish brown pine cones contrast well with the blue sky and I like the perfect sharpness and diagonal placement of the bird in the top left corner. Good use of a shallow dof. Tfs!

    Hello Adrian,

    The wheel tracks add nice lead in lines towards the back. Good color contrasts between the blue sky and ripened yellow crops at right. Perhaps a slight rotation to the left? Tfs!

    I like the sweeping curves of the barrage catwalk and the repetition of the triangular red turrets that also contrast well with the blue water and sky. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre,

    Good catch of the moving boat with no motion blur and the water in the wake only just starting to blur. The correct shutter speed was used in this instance. Tfs!
