    Ciao Silvio,
    what a picturesque scene! The framing is amazing, you have used it perfectly here it goes so well with the scene, even filling the tiny bit between the trees. Beautiful natural blue and green colors.
    Pleasure to look at!

    Hi Rob,
    lovely composition. I like of course the industrial foreground with so many lines and patterns, well spotted and used! However what I like most is of course the fact that you have also included the silhouette of the empire state building. This anchors it in NYC, by introducing a very characteristic element!
    Great idea and perfect quality realization,

    Hello Krzysztof,

    The curve of the bay provides strong lead in lines and the blue sky adds a splendid backdrop. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the moored boats in the harbor. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    What a cosy little wooden cottage amongst the tall trees of the forest. I like the warm cold color contrast between the red and blue. Good sharpness and tight framing. Tfs!

    Hello Rob,

    Good repetition of the geometric patterns and shapes formed by the support structure of the iron bridge, with excellent sharpness and tight framing. The blue sky provides a superb backdrop. Tfs!

    Bonjour Jean

    The diagonal canal adds strong lead in lines and perspective as well as dynamism. Good sharpness and density levels that have given punchy light contrasts & excellent saturation. Merci!

    Hello Ike,

    This aqueduct reminds me of a similar one near Aspendos in south western Turkey, not far from Antalya. Good sharpness and the warm colour of the ancient stones contrasts well with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hi Craig,

    Well composed using the rule of thirds with excellent sharpness and a nice downward pov of the harbour from an elevated position. The solitary red roof stands out and contrasts well with the blue sea and sky. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    The tight framing works well here although some would prefer inclusion of the tops of the spires. Great reflections in the ornamental fountain with good sharpness. The perspective has been well managed with the verticals placed centrally. Tfs!

    An unusual abstract shot from Bangkok with wonderful streaks of motion blurred color. I can make out the long tail boats in the water. A creative and imaginative shot with the standing woman anchoring the image. Tfs!

    Bonjour Christiane,
    We have similar structure in Middlesbrough but it is not lit by night.
    Great capture of this UFO resembling sculpture up in the air above the blurred city lights.
    Very pleasant effect with plenty of light and color!
    Excellent result,

    Hi Lars,
    Darlington is a town near where I live :)
    Lovely composition here. I can recognize already this huge castle in the centre and here you have nicely complemented it with the charming house in the corner. Great light on the main structure.
    Excellent work!!

    Hi John,
    lovely scene from the car show.
    I hope your car is in a bit better condition than this one here :)
    Nevertheless a wonderful subject for photography. Also the two men talking about it with passion add a lovely feeling of action and interest to the scene.
    Great reportage!

    Hi Ike,
    I like this one the most. Lovely colors interesting design. It could be seen as a face but also the nose with eyebrows make a shape of a woman. Eyebrows making raised hands here...
    Are these just a decorations or inscription in an alphabet, Arabic?
    Very well seen and captured!

    Bonjour Denis,

    I am wondering if this might have been better shot at high tide? Anyway the sark sand and rocks add a graphic element to the lighter toned white houses. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the boats. Tfs!

    Perspective has been well managed in this tricky shot with the absence of straight lines and elliptical curves instead. Good sharpness and framing. I might have boosted saturation. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio

    I am just glad you were not amongst the casualties. TE just wouldn't be the same without you. Like everyone I was saddened by the news and immediately worried about you. A real pity this cathedral no longer exists after the devastating earthquake yesterday but kudos to you for capturing it for posterity and perhaps it might be used as a guide when reconstructed? As always, good framing and sharpness. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    I might have added more shadows & / or contrast to compensate for the haze, but composition and pov are flawless. Good sharpness and the red brick walls contrast well with the blue sky to give a grand warm cold color contrast. Tfs!
