    Hello Rob,

    Like you say on the interesting note, maybe it is not spectacular, but it is certainly interesting, fascinating and beautiful. Here, besides the skyline proper, it is also interesting appreciate the pattern rendered by the densely packed buildings, which looks enhanced by the kind of strange light, which seems more wintry than what we would expect for April.

    The last time I was in Paris I stayed in the apartment of a friend in Belleville who had much of this view (and the Eiffel tower to the other side). What a lucky guy!

    TFS, regards, José.

    Hello Craig,

    Isn't it amazing how we never get tired of seeing these POV's that we identify in the tiniest thumbnails because we have seen them thousands of times?

    Pure beauty... A wonderful POV, marvelous light and colours! Fabulous!

    Hello Ourania,

    You are a master with these POV's that explore the reflections on the water. Here it is amazing how such a minimalist compo — just a rope, a piece of pier and the reflection of two blue rectangular shapes gives such an attractive image. Well done.

    TFS, regards, José.

    Hello Ryszard,

    A wonderful view, with splendid light and colours, that make it very attractive. The sharpness is great and I like also the framing done by the trees. Maybe I would correct the perspective a little bit, but that is a minor detail.

    Hello Paul,

    That amazingly urban density, renders a nice visual pattern. It is interesting to notice how the clarity and sharpness fades from the very good on the foreground to the hazy on the upper half of the image, an effect that perhaps is enhanced by having sunlight only in the foreground.

    I also prefer the paper maps, they are much practical and effective to have a general idea and perceiving where we are in context. Digital maps are good to guide us step by step, but I hate the feeling of arriving somewhere without really knowing where I passed. And any lousy paper map "has" a much larger "display" than a portable gadget...

    TFS, regards, José.

    Hello Piotr,

    This one hasn't the "games of lights" and the successive levels of your previous post, but it is also a great view of those stark mountains. I like the 3D effect and the visual punch created by the contrast of the sunlight on the foreground and the darkness of the background, for which also contributes the POV, that invites the eye to follow the ridge in a zigzag from the left to the centre of the image. Very well done!

    TFS, regards, José.

    Hello Miguel,

    This one brings me back good memories (almost 20 years old, time flies...). You did a good capture of the street life of that place so lively and colourful, where the sacred and the daily life does an unique mix (well, perhaps not so unique in Asia, but still fascinating to my Western eyes).

    TFS, regards, José.

    Hello Aleksandar,

    You chose a good POV to present the monastery, framing it with the big tree and its shadow, "balancing" it with the bell. The path leads the eye to the building, that shines with the sun. However, the exposure control isn't very good, with some over-exposure on the whites and under-exposure on the shadows. Nothing disastrous, I guess it would be difficult to do much better, but maybe the use of any "shadows and highlights" tool in post-processing would improve things a bit.

    TFS, regards, José.
