    Hello Roger

    I had the strange experience in Norway of opening the curtain of my 7th story hotel room in Geiranger Fjord, to be looking directly into the 7th deck of a similar gigantic cruise ship, with 8 decks above the waterline. I might have tried to include all of the nose at left, but sharpness, color and saturation are all excellent. I like the warm cold color contrast set up by the red funnel at the back of the boat against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hello Danos,

    A superb decisive moment capturing the bather suspended in mid air above the yacht. Good sharpness and I like the blue colour tones of sea and sky contrasting against the white clouds. Nice repetition of the boats. Well composed with the horizon line placed on the lower 1/3 axis. The boys warm skin tones contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hi Ann,

    A superb landscape shot with the dual sides of the clear stream adding natural lead in lines and linear perspective towards the pine tree on the vanishing point. Good colour and saturation. The warm Autumn colours of the trees contrast well agaisnt the blue grey tones of the sky and reflected skylight in the stream. Tfs.

    Hello Paul,

    An exquisite sunset with a a trio gulls near the top, and two near the bottom adding atmosphere to the silhouette of the church. I had posted an early morning shot of the hillside, Sailing into Lisbon., that complements this beauty. I was surprised to find that it is now almost four years old, posted in 2011.

    Warm regards and have a good weekend,

    Merhaba sevgili Mesut,

    The scanned 12-year old Ektachrome slide has preserved its sharpness, and the season presented is most appropriate for our time. I too had a Nikon N90 (but not the N90x). Now I have a shelf in my home library with my old Nikons on display, Nikon F, Nikon 2020, Nikon N90... along unfortunate reminders of past technology, and all now museum artifacts.

    Warmest regards, Mesut, have a good weekend,

    Hello Aleksander,

    Certainly one of the most beautiful sunset shots of Elblag that I have seen. The sky seems to be on fire, as the cliché goes, but it is appropriate here.

    Have a good weekend,

    Hello Maciej ,

    The shimmering quality of the reflections in the water have an Impressionist effect, but with the added high resolution and sharpness. I have been to Lisbon many times, and Porto once, but have not seen Avero. There is an atmosphere of Venice here.

    Warm regards, and have a good weekend,

    Hello Erling,

    It is always a pleasure to see photos from you, especially from from Bergen. In my 4-5 visits to the beautiful Hanseatic City, I have never seen it under snow, and only once it was raining. (My visits have always come during the summer months). Your note is much appreciated, a little more knowledge to add to what I already have.

    Warm regards and have a good weekend,

    Dear John,

    I recognize many of the scenes on canals that you have shared with us. With each different light condition the mood changes, but it is always compelling. This is a gorgeous shot, befitting your talent as a photographer/artist.

    I too have failed to upload critiques lately, getting strange messages. I will save this note, just in case it does not go through.

    Have a wonderful weekend, my good friend,

    Hello Miguel

    A superb high pov from an aircraft with good sharpness and excellent framing and composition using the rule of thirds for the horizon line. Nice repetition of the fishing and tour boats. The yellow red strip of sandy beach contrasts well against the blue sea and sky. Tfs.

    Hello Stephen

    Looks very British. Good sharpness and fantastic linear perspective with all lines converging towards the back. Nice repetition of patterns and shapes and the people add scale and context. There are similar arcades in Sydney and Brisbane. The chessboard patterned floor adds a nice graphic element. Tfs.

    Hello Ourania,

    A relaxing seaside scene with the breaking wave caught at the right moment to give a superb decisive moment shot. Dramatic tonal range in the sky and the blue grey colors predominate nicely. Good sharpness and I like how the white church on the headland at rights stands out. Tfs!

    A superb semi abstract reflection with good sharpness and splendid density levels with clean whites and solid blacks. I like the repetition of geometric patterns and shapes and the warm vs cold color contrast between the blue and yellow. The diagonal lines add dynamism. Tfs.

    Ciao Ryszard

    Good sharpness on the clocktower with superb graphic elements and excellent minimalist color of just the yellow green illumination and the black night sky. The upper portion looks vaguely Middle Eastern. I arrived in Wroclaw by train but missed this so tfs.

    Hi Paul

    A superb high pov with good sharpness and lots of interesting details to observe. The long tour boat reminds me of ones I saw on the Danube. The stone church tower on the horizon stands out well. Well composed with equal symmetrical portions of blue in the sky at top and the water at the bottom. Tfs.
