    Ciao Ike

    A simple but powerful and expressive sculpture. Good upward pov to the top of the small mound and excellent sharpness. The tree branches add depth and layering, add borders and partly frame the scene. Tfs!

    Hello Daniel,

    London Eye inspired a multitude of Ferris Wheels all around the worls and here is yet another example in the heart of Budapest. A fine birds eye view of the city and I like the wide angled, panoramic format. Good sharpness, too. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo

    These statue performers are also common in Europe. Very good sharpness and if you hadn't hinted I would never have guessed this is flesh and blood street performer. Tfs!

    Hello Burak,

    Good grief! A plastic dominatrix! She has the chains now all she needs is a whip. Nice repetition of the iconic blue and white tiles which are almost unique to Portugal. Good sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello Burak,

    Looks a bit chilly. Reminds me of Erzurum. Good graphic elements of the dark tones of the horse coats against the lighter toned snow. Good sharpness overall though a little soft in the immediate fg. Tfs!

    Bonjour, mon ami Pierre

    The violet color of the larger buildings facade and the blue sky contrast well with the red tones of the door in the smaller building at right. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    Hello Noel,

    A nice minimalist shot of just the abstract sculpture against the cloudy sky backdrop. Good sharpness and graphic elements & well composed using the rule of thirds. I like the minimalist color too. Tfs!

    Hi Stephen,

    Good symmetry in the composition with the dual sides of the steps adding excellent linear perspective. Vibrant color and the green and magenta are complimentary opposites on the colour wheel. Tfs!

    Hi Serge,

    Strasbourg is on my bucket list of places to see. The stream adds strong lead in lines. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The 1/2 timbered houses add character. The red flowers and ivy add a splash of color. Tfs!

    A superb blue hour shot with a wonderful warm cold colour contrast between the yellow illuminated fg buildings and the deep blue bg sky. Excellent sharpness and the stream and bridge add interest. Tfs!

    Bonjour Christiane

    I immediately recognised the spire of the St Mark's tower facsimile. I actually visited Las Vegas before I went to the real Venice so it's nice to go back and compare. There is no other town quite like LV! Or Venice. Tfs!

    Hallo Rob,

    I like the distorted reflections in the shiny pillar at left. Good sharpness and some further fantastic reflections in the ceiling. The blue at the top sets up a warm cold color contrasts with the warmer yellow green tones. Tfs!

    Hello Nicolas,

    An unusual wine barrel house that reminds me of the old lady who lived in a shoe nursery rhyme. The fg yellow green grass contrasts well with the blue shadows and sky. Good sharpness and tight framing. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    It's nice to see these flowering jacaranda trees, a native of South America, flowering here too. There also do well in east coast Australia and flower in October rather than April. Good sharpness and color. Tfs!

    Bonjour Jean,

    The lighthouse makes an obvious focal point. The concrete causeway provides diminishing linear perspective and strong lead in lines converging towards the back. Tfs!

    NYC is famous for some of its quirky street performers and this one is just as offbeat an entertaining and amusing in his own way. Good sharpness and nice to catch some spectators at left. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    These scale models remind me of similar ones in Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. They are difficult to photograph with their shiny reflections and people almost always milling around them. Good result here. Tfs!

    Hi Craig

    People in many countries that live, work and were born & grew up there often fail to see the beauty that surrounds them and usually see their towns as boring and lacking culture. But that simply isn't true. Folks become blase and don't appreciate what they have. Nearly every city has at least something to see. That's demonstrated amply here. Tfs!
