    Hi Craig,
    Contrasty black and white treatment is excellent. And framing with just a slice of sky as well.
    This could also almost show a snowfield. Maybe the appearance would just be less grainy and those wave patterns less likely to appear.

    Hi Jean,
    Beautiful sunset picture. I like the thin cloud layer in front of the sun, so that only the top edge shows as white. Red colour of the sky is really intense and makes good contrast with cool blue sea.

    Hi Ann,
    It is a stunning combination of open American landcape with mountain background and Northern cloudy and snowy weather. The red car is perfectly placed.
    Your selective desaturation is absolutely believable, I wouldn't have noticed without reading the note.

    Hi Neyvan,
    I guess almost every Norwegian town is between water and mountain. And that of course offers great viewpoints! Especially on bright summer sunshine like on this one.
    That big cruise ship looks too and has nice paint on the side.

    Hi dwaipayan,
    Magnificient mountain landscape and obviously very rewarding trek destination. Low angle light gives strong contrasts. Background range of snow covered peaks is awesome.

    Hi Malgo,
    I think you were on the right place, as that chuch is visible under the decorative arch. But I'm sure the official photographere got good shots too. I've taking a few wedding portraits outside too. Weather permitting, there's so many possibilities.
    Interesting note. Now I just wonder what all the new members who don't participate and have female names do...

    Hi Noel,
    Stunning view with the sun directly on the background. Hard to get exposure right like on this one. The sculpture is certainly original and you framed it well showing how it reaches towards the sky.

    Hi Piotr,
    Quite a view! Combination of warm yellow and green tones in background and almost black and white foreground rocks is excellent. Good framing with diagonal division between those. And people making their way on the edge.

    This is just stunning. Those old boats make a flower shape. And their blue colours have nice palette. You timed the leap perfectly.

    Hi Gosia,
    It is so beautiful. Creative illumination brings every detail visible with good contrasts. And you have good dynamic angle on it. Exposure is just right.
    I read that it has new glass walkways on the upper deck.

    Hi Jean,
    One of the beautiful moments that reward those who are up early. This view clearly shows that Naples is a historic city, though foreground details are more modern.
    I should be there on Christmas Day.

    Hi Klaudio,
    What a treasure! That structure looks quite big, although it's hard to estimate the size from this view. Anyway, amazing details, including mirror surfaces in the background. Good light and framing too.
    I guess Inar has a lot to see, that is not so well known. And what I've read, people are friendly too.

    Hi Krzysztof,
    Such old narrow gauge railways are fascinating way to travel, if you are not in a hurry.
    Rusty rails reveal thaet trafic is not very dense. Bright red locomotive catches attention for sure.
    Good angle where track leading further back provide some nice perspective.

    Hi Gerrit,
    Beautiful, timeless looking rural view from Uganda. Reddish brown road creates nice perspective. People on the move show how a car is not typical way of transport over there. Red flowers on the tree are special.
    Full size view reveals JPG compression artefacts. I wonder if this was saved on some stage of editing on smaller file size?

    Hi Nicou,
    Clouds hanging on the mountain slopes is one thing in common with Switzernald and Faroe Islands.
    This view shows the majestic landscape well. And size of the mountain is easy to estimate when that village and it's colourful houses are visible.

    Hi Trevor,
    Centre of this little town is indeed beautiful, with old houses and cobblestones. Background mountain looks also great, adding even more Swiss feeling. Cloudy light is not best possible. This could look good also in B&W, giving more timeless look.

    Hi Mike,
    It was really worth taking a closer look at this too! That one is really clever! No wonder others didn't notice it. I think Dali was looking for such surprising details and combinations that don't open for everyone. So there's a chance this isn't a coincidence. I have visited the museum in 1992, and really wish to go there again.

    Hi Craig,
    Sunny days of fall are so beautiful. It's a pity that period is so short, at least here in Finland. Good contrasty shot with shady trunks and backlit foliage. The couple adds nice human presence and is well placed.
