    Hi Daniel

    Missed this one. Smart choice of a vertical frame with fantastic fg reflections and good sharpness and saturation. The pale honey yellow color of the bg buildings contrasts well against the blue sky. The fg fishing boats vaguely resemble Venetian gondolas. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre

    Good diffused light on a cloudy day and well framed and composed with plenty of breathing space right around the lighthouse. Good sharpness and the deserted picnic table adds a sad melancholic mood. The yellow flowers add a welcome splash of color. Tfs!

    Ciao Carlo

    I like the high pov and the candy red and white striped colour scheme. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The childrens playground makes a fine and appropriate backdrop. Well framed and composed. The grafitti on the fg shutter adds realism. Tfs!

    Hi Serghei

    I like the warm cold colour contrast between the blue sky and the yellow and red bee colors of the plane. Good sharpness and saturation. I like the addition of the much smaller biplane top right. The 4 propellor blades nicely divide the image into quadrants. Tfs!

    Salut Nicole

    It's hard not to take great photos in Venice. I took around 125 shots and almost every one of them was a winner. likewise here. Splendid color contrasts with good sharpness and the canal adding nice lead in lines and perspective. Good reflections too. The people add scale and animate the shot. Merci et bon semaine!

    Hi Neyvan

    Good shadow detail in the sculpture with excellent graphism against the lighter bg sky and excellent sharpness. The circle frames the statue nicely and good to include breathing space around the margins. The bird at right is an interesting additional element. Well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Hi Steven

    There are similar blue grottoes in Capri, Greece and Turkey so it's nice to see one more from Malta. The prow of the boat adds nice lead in lines and perspective. Superb warm cold color contrasts between the blue and yellow. The natural rock arch frames the bg scene nicely. Good sharpness density levels and saturation. Tfs!

    Hi Alexander

    The checked path adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective towards the bg street. Good sharpness, and excellent colour and saturation. A marvellous blue sky backdrop to contrast against the yellow green vegetation. The flowers add a welcome splash of colour. The swirl patterns add interest. Tfs!

    Hello Maria

    An exceptional shot with fantastic sharpness, symmetry and composition. Nice repetition of the posts at left and the lights and design patterns in the walls and ceiling of this curved interior shot. The red floor contrasts well against the blue hues to give a splendid warm vs cold colour contrast. The K35 / 36 signs add balance to the composition. Tfs!

    Hi Bev

    A superb upward pov with a nice minimalist composition and a semi abstract framing. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the inverted v shaped support wires. The 2 lighter toned structures left and right add good symmetry. The minimalist colour works well too. Good shadow detail in the underbelly. Tfs!

    Hi Costantino,
    very relaxing view. I like the presence of the person who seems to have all the beach for himself. Although rocky, the beach seems so clean and unspoiled.
    Nice holiday shot,

    Hi Ike,
    interesting modern sculpture. You show it in the context of the location. I think it would be interesting to see it closer too to be able to see the details. Amazing weather, I am so jealous about it.
    I am praying for a peace in your country,

    Ciao Lisa,
    this is so beautiful. I love deserts. I had a pleasure to live in California for a couple of years and had a bit taste of it. I loved it. This seems like a place which I would like to visit frequently. I did not know you have such landscapes so close to Sydney, I thought they are more in the center or in the west.
    Fantastic light emphasized the extraordinary pattern.
    A real master piece of nature and of you.
    Excellent work!!!

    Hi John,
    the streets seem so full of history :)
    Of course I know this story but I would not be able to associate it with the pub. Nice street scene and the people walking the street not only don't disturb but even add a nice touch, some life to the scene.
    very well spotted. I have to take more photos with people I guess. What I like in this photo is feeling of luminosity, it seems so bright and colorful although there is no direct sunlight or so it seems.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Angel,
    I had a pleasure to visit this lovely town and although so pretty I have to say it is very challenging to present it. The streets are narrow and very strong light with strong contrasts. You have selected a nice spot here, the square is so full of color and charming townhouses. Plus there are palm trees and elegant lamps for decoration, Very well done,

    Hi Rosemary,
    in black and white one could argue it is a photo of a desert ;) Similar geometry :) What mainly differs is the fresh green color.
    Beautiful scene well spotted. I like the trails of the tractor which add more interest and of course the farm buildings on the horizon with the pointy trees.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Noel,
    very well spotted! The light quite challenging although very atmospheric, full of mood. But the composition is fantastic without a doubt!
    And great idea for a title as well, it is so accurate and funny.

    Hi Craig,
    this is so beautiful, I have seen your or Tosca's photos from this hike on FB already. It is truly jaw-dropping and with your usual high quality it works really impressive. I like the greenish color of the water and a combination of clarity with reflection -so unusual, so beautiful effect. Great sky as well on top of it. Excellent light. I can't believe it is so close to you and you first went to Iceland before going here! I am so jealous you have such beautiful spots around.
    Beautiful work!
