    Hello Jean,

    I like the silhouetted human figure in the archway. Good sharpness and a pleasant, diffused light. Excellent textural detail in the facade of the building with the green moss augmenting the color of the grey flagstones and slate roof. Tfs.

    Hello Pierre,

    A good closeup shot of the jet airliner with exceptional sharpness especially considering the speed at which they travel. Good color and saturation and the blue sky makes a superb backdrop. The highlights have been well exposed and the blacks are solid. Tfs.

    Hello Stephen,

    Good sharpness and nice repetition of the boats on the bay. Punchy light contrasts and graphic elements enhanced by the dark rocks in the fg and the grove of dark trees on the peninsula. I like the repetition of the rippled, wave patterns in the water. Tfs.

    Hello Ike,

    I visited La Spezia in 2013 but missed this impressive building. Good sharpness and the stairs at right add superb lead in lines and perspective. The dark stone building contrasts well against the lighter toned sky to give a pleasing graphic element. A pleasant diffused light in the fg shifting to punchy light contrasts in the bg. Tfs.

    Ciao Bobo!

    I visited Salzburg last year. Good sharpness and a marvellous high vantage point, with soft pastel colours. The tree branch nicely frames the distant spires and their dark tones add a welcome graphic element against the high key tones in the sky. Tfs.

    Hello Gerrit,

    Missed this one.

    The 2 girls wearing the ornately decorated stockings contrast well against the woman at right who isn't. Good daily life scene depicted here with excellent sharpness and tight framing. I like the diffused light and shallow dof throwing the bg oof. Tfs.

    Some impressive street art on display here and sharpness and framing are excellent. The hand with a pen at right so close to the other hand at left reminded me of the famous Dutch painter, Escher: http://uploads3.wikiart.org/images/m-c-escher/drawing-hands.jpg

    The low interior light levels have been well managed and sharpness is excellent. I like the repetition of the overlapping arches in the high ceiling at the back. The people add context and scale. The remnant artwork is sublime. The fg passageway adds perspective towards the back. Tfs.

    Bonjour Nicou,

    The blue sweatshirt of the jogger contrasts well against the fields of yellow flowers. Some nice reflections in the small puddle. Good sharpness & excellent saturation and color. The grey path at right adds fine lead in lines and deep perspective and dynamism. Tfs.

    Hello Dwaipayan!

    I can well imagine how cold it must be at such a high altitude. Good warm cold color contrasts between the man in the yellow shawl at left and the blue sky at right as well as the hazy, deep shadowed blue mountains. Impeccable sharpness and a magnificent panorama. Tfs.

    Hi Andre,

    Exceptional sharpness with nice reflections and good color and saturation. The long time exposure has given a silky texture to the motion blurred water of the Thames, and the starburst lights look great. The sunset colors of pink and orange contrast well against the blue tones to give a fantastic warm cold color contrast. Tfs.

    Hello Serge

    I like the soft diffused light and muted pastel colors. I am sure it would look equally great on a sunny day with a blue sky and contrasted saturated colors, but the mood and ambiance is completely different. Good sharpness and the stream adds nice deep lead in lines and perspective. Tfs.

    Good density levels and exposure which have given punchy light contrasts, good saturation, and solid blacks with clean crisp whites. Well composed with excellent sharpness. The yellow green vegetation contrasts splendidly against the blue water and sky. Tfs.

    Hi Neyvan

    The purple fg tulips add a pleasant splash of color. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. The trees at right nicely frame the lake, and the reflections in the water are nice. The distant hazy blue mountain on the far shore provides a good focal point in the distance. Tfs.

    Hi Neyvan.

    Good sharpness and the last time I saw this 'Matterhorn' was at the Tivoli Gardens fun park in Copenhagen. Much better to see the real thing! Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. The overlapping fg spur adds depth and layering. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and yellow green fg vegetation. Tfs.

    Hi Stephen,

    The skeletal like superstructure of an old sailing ship in the dock makes a fine focal point. Hard to imagine such a pretty place could have been the scene of such horrors in the 19th and again in the 20 th century when Martin Bryant did a copy cat of the Dunblane shootings. Good sharpness and the white Shipwright's House makes a good secondary focal point. Tfs.

    Good sharpness and the zig zag road adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective towards the vanishing point. Nice repetition of the trees at left and the yellow lampposts at right which also contrast well against each other. Good composition and framing. Tfs.

    I like the shallow dof in both the fg & bg and the superb warm cold color contrast between the yellow nad blue at right. Effective tight framing and amazing repetition of the patterns and shapes in the engine. The 2 curves add dynamism. Tfs.
