    Hi Clark. The so called minimalist approach has its own impact. Wonderful shades of blue nicely accentuated by your natural pink beacons.The sea looks mysterious and so does the whole image. Regards. Klaudio.

    Although with bad weather, as you say in your note, you could find a way of taking a beautiful and interesting picture of the patterns of the soil, with very good colors and sharpness! Beautiful job! Well done!

    Hello, Fredrik!

    The place looks really beautiful and peaceful, and the light is very well managed! I didn't have the opportunity of knowing the interior of Colombia yet, but there must be wonderful places like this! Beautiful composition!

    Bonjour Philippe,

    Excellent use of a shallow dof with very good sharpness on the duck preoccupied with preening and toiletries. Nice bg reflections in the water. Excellent textural and tonal details in its plumage. Effective tight framing with no wasted space. Tfs!

    Bonjour JJ,

    Missed this one. Excellent density levels which have given punchy light contrasts and good saturation. Nice textural and tonal details. This would work equally well en n&b. Effective tight framing and I like the shadow play at right. Tfs!

    Hello Gunnar,

    I was in Norway last September and lucked out on weather. I rarely saw clear blue skies like this! Good sharpness and the small dinghy with outboard motor makes a good focal point. Nice reflections in the limpid water too. A few clouds fill the empty space in the sky. Tfs!

    Hello Georg,

    The old church looks Greek Byzantine or Turkish Ottoman in design and shape which was a surprise for me as I saw nothing similar in Salzburg and Innsbruck. The bg snowcapped peaks make a majestic backdrop. I like the elevated pov. Tfs!

    Hi Rosemary,

    I really enjoyed Florence when I visited last year and recognized this shot immediately! Nice use of the adjacent fg buildings to frame the bg dome of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. Wish I'd climbed the tower in hindsight. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicole

    I like the curving, 'c' shaped promenade leading the eye directly to the bg conglomeration of tightly packed buildings high on a hill. The people add scale and animate the shot. The blue sky contrasts well against the soft yellow ochre tones of the buildings and rampart walls. Tfs!

    Hi dwaipayan,

    Considering the high altitude, the sky looks perfectly natural to me and not necessarily over saturated at all. I have been to Nepal and the higher up you go the bluer and clearer the sky gets. It's the same in Bolivia and the high Andes. I like the colourful prayer flags framing the bg mountains in the shape of a slice of watermelon. Tfs!

    Hello Swapan,

    A very colourful daily life scene on the river, enriched by the garlands of marigolds. Good sharpness and I like the through view to the horizon nicely framed by the arching roof of the highly decorated boat. Good balanced symmetrical composition with nice diminishing linear perspective. Tfs!

    Ciao Luciano

    At first glace the blinkered horse appears to me admiring itself in the reflective puddle. But in reality it is probably hesitantly contemplating whether to have a drink or not. Nice reflection of the warm toned bg building against the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hi Carlo

    I like the angled pov on the tomb showing both facets. A good exposure on the bright highlights with excellent sharpness and good saturation and density levels. I like the yellow Autumn foliage at left contrasting against the blue sky. Tfs!

    Bonjour Ghislaine

    I like the high pov and the soft pastel colours with the rose sky and blue water providing a superb warm vs cold colour contrast. Fantastic sharpness and the tightly packed houses on the steep hillside are amazing. The fg vegetation adds depth and frames the view. Tfs!

    Bonjour Denis,

    I love the marvellous, symmetrical sunset reflection in the fg water, presumably a tidal swimming pool? Good silhouettes and graphism with the fishermen adding life and context. The clouds have mostly filtered out the suns harsh glare. Tfs!

    Hi Klaudio,

    Some ornate Islamic architecture in this attractive palace in Iran. The exteriors are more decorative than those in Turkey. The angled footpath adds dynamism and perspective leading the eye to the steps. Good sharpness and the honey coloured tones contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs!
