    Hello Ike,

    I have yet to visit Moselle and the Rhineland area. It looks nice. Good sharpness and excellent natural looking color and saturation. I like the repetition of the conifer trees on top of the hill and their partial silhouettes. Tfs!

    Hello Ourania,

    The red stripe in the fg blue fishing boat adds a nice warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and superb reflections in the water. The wooded bg hill makes a good focal point and contrasts well with the village at left. Tfs!

    Hello Craig

    A couple of times I have seen elaborate photo shoots and promptly been asked to please leave the area (even though it's a public street) as they were busy, so it's wise to give them some breathing space by using zoom as you have done here. As Robert Palmer used to sing, 'Some guys have all the luck'! Tfs!

    Hello, Pierre,

    Adequate sharpness and this reminds me very much of Filipino beaches like Boracay. It looks like it was windy judging from the motion blurred trees. Tfs!

    Hi Stephen,

    I've never been to Luna Park in Sydney although I have been to the same Luna Park in St Kilda in Melbourne a couple of times in the distant past. Good use of the SHB as a frame. Excellent sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

    Salut Jean

    They have the same problem with beach erosion from storms in the Gold Coast beaches south of Brisbane. Eventually the sand comes back. From memory I think Delft of the Netherlands gave advice to pump sand from a nearby river estuary back onto the beaches. And construct a number of rock groynes. Tfs!

    Hi Paul

    It looks like a miniature Prague which also had lots of white swans. The diffused light works well and sharpness is excellent. Good linear perspective with the bridge near the vp making an ideal focal point. Tfs!

    Hi, Paul,

    There is a similar deserted copper mine outside Chillagoe in far north Queensland that looks similar to this. Good sharpness and wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the rusty red orange and the blue sky. Tfs!

    Strange weather indeed! The flowering almond trees are an unusual sight in winter. Good sharpness and attractive pastel colors. Repetition of the stakes in the bg orchard at left adds interest. Tfs.

    Hello Angel,

    The composition is first rate but I am not sure about the blurring of the rocks. Did they have rude Spanish words and graffiti scrawled on them? The reflection of the person with a red jacket is excellent. Tfs!

    It is with sadness I look at this image after the terrible earthquake last year. I was lucky enough to visit Nepal in 2000 and again in 2001. A superb daily life scene of the 2 women with prayer candles. Tfs!
