    Hello Nicolas

    Missed this one. The placement of the cloud resembles the ash spewing from an active volcano. Fortunately there are none in Switzerland! The orange and blue colours set up a good warm cold colour contrast. Tfs!

    Bonjour, Nicolas,

    I like the minimalist colors & superb graphism. The radial light beams emanating from behind the dark cloud make the shot. Tfs!

    Hi Noel,

    I like the elongated s shape of the path leading across the bridge. Good sharpness and marvellous sidelight from the right. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe,
    Good to see you're back. This is a most charming photo of this quiet village. Good composition, the old facades lead the eye nicely to the church tower. The sunlight was very pleasant.

    Hallo Paul,
    Een interessante note over de recente geschiedenis van Colombia en de hopelijk betere toekomst voor het land. De vliegers die hier in de lucht hangen geven in ieder geval een feestelijke sfeer aan. Het is een mooie, gemoedelijke foto op dit grote dorpsplein vol mensen aan het begin van de avond. De wolkenlucht is een prachtige achtergrond.

    Hello Chris,
    The low POV is really well chosen. The warm/cold contrast between the pier and the water is very attractive. The last bit of sunlight of the day mixed with the lighting of the docks adds a beautiful mood.

    Hello Murat,
    A very nice close-up photo of the tower of this charming church. It stands out very nicely from behind the trees and against the very blue sky. The light was most appealing and helped to bring out the colours wonderfully.

    Florence from Michelangelo Lookout looks fantastic. The big red dome of the cathedral stands out well with the blue sky. Good sharpness and a fine elevated view. Tfs!

    The red roof of the buildings contrasts well with the blue sky backdrop. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. The people add scale and animate the scene. Tfs!

    I like the repetition of the chequered fg squares of the piazza, contrasting against the blue sky. The people add scale and animate the scene. The flag provides a focal point. Tfs!

    No words. The tilt accentuates the sense of sliding loss of both people and buildings. Good sharpness and a superb blue sky backdrop. Tfs!

    The dark fg arch framing the lighter tones structures in the bg adds a nice graphic element. Good sharpness and the blue tiles and red flowers create a splendid warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

    Hi, Costantiono,

    I stopped at a couple of island between Samos and Mykonos and I am pretty sure this was one of them. The lighter toned swirling and churning blue in the fg contrasts well with the dark cobalt blue in the bg. Tfs!

    Hello Ourania

    I like the soft pastel colours and their stark contrast with the bright yellow green seaweed. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The masts of the tall ships add a focal point. Tfs!
