    Salut JJ

    Good action shot with pin sharpness that has effectively frozen every piece of airborne dirt in the exhaust and cloud of dust behind the speeding vehicle. Good cropping and natural looking colors with excellent density levels. Merci!

    Hi Murat,

    I like the vivid splash of colour added by the purple bougainvillea flowers at right. Good sharpness & a superb high pov. The fg vegetation frames the bg scene, adds depth and layering and provides a graphic element. Good warm cold color contrasts against the bg blue water and sky. Tfs!

    Hi Miguel,

    A good angled pov with excellent sharpness and a nice color scheme of green and blue. Perfect color balance as evidenced by the clean grey asphalt driveway. The red Viva sign and orange witch hats enhance the color coordination and add a warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

    Hi Miguel

    They look docile here but apparently they kill more people than crocodiles in Africa and are fiercely territorial. Good sharpness and realistic colour. I might have cropped some of the top to exclude the wooden awning protruding at right. Tfs!

    Salut Nicolas,

    Looks like an abstract map of Japan off the east Asian coast from the thumbnail so a nice surprise to see the fish upon opening the thumbnail. Good sharpness and transparency of the water in parts. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the yellow green and blue. Tfs!

    Guten Tag Bernd

    Nice repetition of the haybales with good sharpness & a superb warm cold colour contrast between the pale straw yellow and the blue sky. Good to have the bg haybales angled differently to those in the fg to add interest. Excellent sharpness and the green vegetation completes the colour palette. Tfs!

    Hi Mesut,

    I like the shallow dof with sharpness on the peppers. Good color and saturation. Nice repetition of the jars of condiments. Effective tight framing and good graphism. I regret not going to Mardin but I needed a break from the 40c heat. Tatvan won! Tfs!

    Bonjour Danos

    The fg water wheel makes a superb focal point. Good sharpness and a nice subtle reflection in the stream, which also adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Excellent shadow detail and sharpness. Tfs!

    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!

    Bonjour Serge,

    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!

    Hello Les,

    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!

    Looks similar to Lake Louise from the Agnes Lake trail in the Canadian Rockies. Good sharpness and the yellow green forest contrasts well against the blue water. The majestic snow capped peaks make a superb backdrop. Tfs!

    Hoping to do a tour here soon. I am off to Munich tomorrow. Hope all the scaffolding is gone. A superb high pov with good sharpness and excellent shadow detail despite the backlighting. The bg lake adds interest. Good graphism too. Tfs!

    Hello John

    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!
