    Hello Maciej,

    The red brick floor of the upper terrace at right sets up a wonderful warm vs cold colour contrast agaisnt the blue sky. I like the wide angled, panoramic crop and the superb sharpness and saturation. The diagonal stone fence at right provides both dynamism and linear perspective towards the back. Tfs.

    Ciao Giovanni!

    This looks like the area around Glenlyon Dam in Qld Australia. Its not lush coastal anymore and its not dry desert either. Sort of a transition zone on an elevated plateau sloping away to the west. The fg fence here adds depth and graphic elements. Fantastic sharpness and a dramatic sky with even a little rain falling in the distance. Tfs.

    Hi Bev

    I like the shadow play formed by the strong sidelight from the right through the ornate grill fence. Nice repetition of the shelter sheds at the end of the pier. Good sharpness and excellent depth and perspective. The lamppost adds depth, graphic elements and framing. Tfs.

    Hello Burak,

    I stayed in a 4 star hotel in Urfa which was a big improvement on the Nemrut Dagi Hotel I stayed at the bight before. The cost was included in the package tour I booked in Goreme. I like the slightly wide angled panoramic format and superb colour and sharpness. A good high pov. Tfs.

    Hello Roger,

    I am off to the other winery in Moldova tomorrow morning. Ive already visited Cricova. The high pov over the vineyards works well here. Good color and sharpness with superb saturation and framing. The red umbrella at left contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Merhaba Murat,

    I like the electric blue color of the bg minaret at right contrasting against the yellow illuminated minaret at left in the fg. Smart choice of a vertical format to emphasize the height. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the domes and cupolas. Tfs.

    Hello Piotr,

    The shadowed snowy slope at right adds dynamism and the dark conifer trees along the ridge provide a wonderful graphic element of contrasting dark against light tones. Good sharpness and the craggy, snow capped peaks in the bg make a majestic alpine backdrop. Tfs!

    Hello Ourania,

    A good daily life scene from this picturesque fishing village and harbour. Natural looking color saturation and a pleasant diffused light. The diagonal concrete pier adds dynamism, and the fishermen add scale and context. The yellow and blue colors set up a harmonious warm cold color contrast. Tfs.

    Hi Aleksander. it does look like a painting done by the old masters. The image looks "aged" because of the low light and colour saturation. Wonderful old buildings and a lovely birch tree with a bird on top. Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.

    Hello Danos

    I love that snow capped peak in full sunlight in the distance at top left. Good high pov with impeccable sharpness and superb framing and saturation. The lemon yellow tints in the sunset clouds contrast well against the blue grey hues. Tfs.

    Fabulous repetition of the pylons in the water with nice reflections and superb sharpness and saturation. I like the warm vs cold colour contrast between the reflected blue skylight and the yellow brown wooden poles protruding out of the water. Tfs!

    Hi Jean. Mysterious and beautiful at the same time. The delicate blades of grass and the seed pods render a delicate touch to this scene, reminding us how vulnerable nature is to our mindless despoliation. Regards. Klaudio.

    Hello Silvio,

    The village appears to be marooned on an island in a sea of fog! Good sharpness and nice graphic elements of contrasting dark and light tones. The heavy frost on the fg grass adds interest. I like the minimalist color and muted saturation. Tfs!

    Hello Mesut,

    The Rhone Alps are very impressive. Punchy light contrasts with a good exposure on the white highlights of the snow. Excellent sharpness and nice graphic elements of the dark spire against the lighter blue snow. Tfs.

    Merhaba Mesut. The distant stars have a message for us humans as they watch impassively over our victories and defeats, our silly games and ambitions. A symbolic photo for many things that happen in the world and in our lives. To tell you the truth, I was wondering how long your B&W would last before being removed because it was posted years earlier. Anyway, my felicitations and as I wrote for your B&W, my admiration for your devotion to this site for we joined TE the same year and I have posted only a third of what you have and I have not written as many critiques. Best wishes. Selamlar. Klaudio.

    Hello Miguel,

    A good high pov but I am missing a bit of sharpness. The long sweeping curve of the beach adds good lead in lines. Excellent color contrasts between the yellow sand and the blue sea and sky. The bg fish traps made from bamboo add interest. Tfs.
