    Hello Ihsan,

    the couple is a great addition to this photo has it gives the viewers an idea of the sheer size of those trees. The mist also adds a bit of mystery to your composition.

    Hi Noel,

    an impressive perspective that you've captured with ease and delicacy. The way the light plays among the interwined branches is superb. I also like the way you've framed this scene, leaving a lot of space for the vegetal part of the scenery.

    Have a nice day

    Hello Jose,

    a very refreshing composition. The yellow dress, the deep blue sea and that white boat on the horizon along with those simple geometric shapes reminds me of a child's painting. DExcellent

    Hello Stephane,

    The black and white seems to enhance the texture of the stone while giving more impact to the overall graphism. Your framing is very meticulous, very efficient (the almost overlapping lighthouses). Congrats.

    Hello leslie,

    a lovely scenic road. The perspective is an invitation to a bucolic strolling through that enchanting scenery. The tight framing makes a clever use of the hedges along the road.

    Hello Pilar,

    the use of mist, the restricted paleete, the almost monochromatic aspect of this image gives it a subtle touch. The framing of the boat gives a lot of dynamics and offers a nice balanced contrast to the background.

    Hi Jason,

    a very evocative and cleverly done shot. The shiny lines, the contrast between the blurred and the sharp areas, the verticality of the pole, all these elements add dynamics, motion yet delicacy to your image.

    Hello Ann,

    overcoming such a gloomy sky, in fact taking advantage of it to add drama to your composition is the challenge that you've perfectly achieved. The fence and the white lines of the barn give your mage balance and perspective. Bravo indeed

    this morning crop is great, glad you went out for a walk. The low point of view, the backlit leaves, the slightlu misty background give a great strength and atmosphere to your composition. Superb.

    that vintage touch looks great as it is real not fake. The leaning Vespa with its share of rust, its vermillion paint against the subdued background create a timeless image.

    Bonjour Serge,

    la pose longue apporte douceur et délicatesse à cette belle composition. L'opposition entre l'aspect piqué des feuillages et le velouté des chutes fonctionne parfaitement.

    Hello Craig,

    a stunning use of perspective enhanced by the rythmic pattern of the windows. The opposition between the ocre buildings (and their lovely textures) and the blue sky adds a lot of impact. This is a lesson on how to turn an ordinary street corner into a strong photograph.

    Have a nice day

    that person walking by really makes the world of a difference. It reinforces that Nemo, 20.000 leagues under the sea feeling. The composition is very dynamic and I really like the tonal range.

    le noir et blanc met superbement en avant l'aspect minéral, la beauté austère de cette composition. Elle fait ressortir textures (dans les nuages notamment), les motifs et strucutre l'ensemble.
