    Hello Aleksander

    The perspective of the canal is reinforced by the wake of the boat. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. I like the high pov. Good placement of the bg boat and bridge near the vanishing point. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and yellow green vegetation. Tfs!

    Ciao Lisa,

    A good daily life scene from Italy He looks like a happy chappy. I miss that lemon squash they sell on the Amalfi coast. The chilies and figs look good too. Positano is great. Must get back there one day, preferably when I am still in Europe. Tfs!

    Hi Brian,

    I might have brightened the shadowed fg a little but the sunlit bg is great. The carpet of blue flowers contrasts well against the yellow green trees in the light. Good sharpness and amazing repetition of the flowers. Tfs!

    Sensuous curves and I like the ornate decorations and artwork as well as the nice warm vs cold color contrast between the blue and yellow hues. Good sharpness and a nice upward pov. Effective tight framing. Bon semaine!

    Nice motion blur in all 3 cascades with good warm light on the yellow green grass top left. I like the unusual natural perspective created by the vertical rock strata leading into the sea. Good sharpness and color saturation. Top shot! Tfs!

    Missed this one. Must have been on tour. Superb sharpness as evidenced by the pinpoint clarity of the text. The colourfully attired people add scale and life to the scene. A nice blue sky that contrasts well against the red roofs at right. Tfs!

    Hi Rosemary

    Amazing similarities in color and mood with Australian deserts. Here is 'Big Red' in the Simpson Desert which straddles south western Qld & south eastern Northern Territory.

    Hi Stephen,

    A wonderful blue sky with good sharpness and punchy light contrasts on account of the perfect density levels giving clean blacks and whites. The curved fg footpath adds dynamism. Some nice ornate decoration in the stone facade of the building. Tfs!

    Hi Stephen,

    A well composed shot with the horizon positioned on the 1/3 axis. The diagonal, curved back of the boat adds dynamism. Good sharpness and the yellow circle creates a fine warm cold colour contrast. An excellent high pov and the distant boat makes a good focal point. Tfs!
