    Hello Serge,

    Almost if not even more so, as impressive as the more celebrated Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. A wonderful blue hour shot with good sharpness and a superb upward pov. Excellent sharpness and saturation and nice warm vs cold color contrasts in this wonderful blue hour shot. Tfs.

    Bonjour Stephen

    Perspective has been well managed with no sign of lens barrel distortion despite the wide angled 27mm lens. The four doors add symmetry and repetition. Good colour and saturation with superb reflections. The woman photographer is particularly eye catching. Tfs.

    Hello Gert

    It was still possible to spot similar scenes to this 30 years later when I visited Nepal in 2000 and again in 2002. Good sharpness and I like the motion blur of the woman's right hand here (really her left hand) and the superb capture of this charming daily life scene. Tfs.

    Bonjour Jean,

    Looks like some parts of Austria or Switzerland. A good exposure on the white highlights of the snow with superb sharpness & saturation. The yellow green grass contrasts well against the blue sky. The farmhouse and tractor at right add good focal points and centres of interest. Tfs.

    Czesc Malgorzata,

    I like the contrast between the old and the new here with 2 older building sandwiching the more modern building between them. Good warm cold color contrasts between the blue and yellow green trees and the red tile rooftops. Excellent sharpness, saturation and framing. Tfs.

    Hi Ike,

    I like the textural contrasts between the shiny new glass with reflections and the pitted old original wall of the renovated building. Good sharpness and excellent reflections of the passerby in the street. Perspective has been well managed and the strong vertical lines add repetition. Tfs.

    Hello Pierre,

    The green beach volleyball net sets up a good central focal point. Excellent sharpness and the clientele appear to be older middle aged members of the jetset or cruise passengers. Excellent sharpness and the tropical light and color saturation are self evident. Tfs.

    Excellent sharpness and their purple dresses remind me of Thai purple orchids. Good saturation and framing. Nice use of a shallow dof to throw the bg oof. Several times I have been to the riverside Restaurant in Chiang Mai. The food there is great. Thanks for the memories.

    Hello Roger,

    It would not have been possible for 2 women to be the train engineers back in 1950's and early 60's. Some thing have changed for the better and other things are not so good today. The 2 women are even dressed similarly to Casey Jones: http://www.westernclippings.com/images/misc_for_sale/toys1a_caseyjonesgame.jpg

    Hello Angshuman,

    Wonderful color saturation with excellent sharpness. The seated Buddha statue at left makes a fine focal point and it appears to be surveying the scene. Its golden color contrasts well against the bg blue sky. The village tripping down the slopes at right in the distance completes the scene. Tfs.

    Missed this one. Good sunset colours with excellent saturation and nice graphic elements and silhouettes. The small bay with the fishing boat in the fg adds a nice focal point. The tree at top right above the cliff adds especially nice silhouettes. Tfs.

    Amazing repetition of the number of moored yachts in the harbour. Fantastic reflections and the jagged bg mountains make a superb backdrop. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Some interesting cloud patterns in the sky. I like the wide angled panoramic crop. Tfs.

    Bonjour Christiane,

    Missed this one. A striking warm cold color contrast between the blue and yellow with marvellous distorted reflections. Good to include the floating object protruding from the water and the reflections of the fishing boats and outboard motors at the top add context and place. Tfs.

    Looks like a charming and authentic spot for some al fresco dining. Good sharpness and I like the fantastic graphic elements added by the cross hatch patterns of the brown cross beams on the white facades of the bg buildings. A pleasant diffused light and well composed. Tfs.

    Hello Maciej,

    I know this spot. The was a giant head sculpture beside the city hall building in the bg but on the other side, and the underground catacombs were worth seeing under the central building. I like the extreme wide angled view bordering on a fish-eye lens. Nice warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue and yellow orange and red hues. Tfs.

    Hello Malgo

    Lots of complimentary opposite colors here such as yellow and blue, red and cyan, all that is missing is green vs magenta! The fg people passing by animate the scene and the plants on the upper left balcony behind the rails soften the scene. The blue sky makes a good backdrop. Excellent sharpness and saturation. Tfs.

    Bonjour, chère Cricri,

    I like the natural looking pastel colors and the superb warm vs cold color contrast between the blue sky and the red brown bricks within the ruins. Good sharpness and excellent framing and composition with good breathing space right around. The angled wall remnant at left adds perspective. Tfs.

    Hello Jean Jacques,

    The Gothic arches remind me of a similar church in Istanbul. The yellow red bricks in the upper part of the image contrast well against the blue grey tones in the floor and windows. Impeccable sharpness and smart choice of a vertical frame. The light coming through the windows helps define the interior of the building and adds shadows. Tfs.
