    Ciao Pierre,

    The difference in both light contrasts and colour saturation is readily apparent when critiquing an image from Newfoundland and then to a tropical locale such as this. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the patterns formed in the pavement with the rectangles. The red and white hurdles at the end add interest. Tfs!

    Ciao Luciano

    I like the distorted angles and the reflection in the glass facades. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. The blue sky and white colours of the building go well together and the 45 degree tilt adds dynamism. The al fresco diners provide interest along with the man holding a cellphone as he walks along the street. Tfs.

    Bonjour Denis,

    Striking warm cold colour contrasts between the bright red salmon pink and honeycomb yellow facades of the buildings at right against the blue sky. Good sharpness and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point at the 2 white cars. The people add scale and animate the scene. Tfs.

    Hello Bev,

    Missed this one. The picturesque walking track looks to be in fair condition with proper stone steps and not just a rutted, eroded incline like some walking tracks in Australia. Good sharpness and the reddish brown dried vegetation sets up a superb warm cold colour contrast against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hello Francesco,

    A superb backlight that makes the Autumn leaves appear to glow and be translucent. Good sharpness and the dual spans of the old stone bridge attract attention. The fast flowing Tiber River looks more turbulent than I would have imagined. The arch at right nicely frames the lamppost. Tfs.

    Hi Mesut,

    Looks a little like Afrodisias theatre. Good sharpness and great that most of it has survived relatively intact over the centuries. I hope that what is happening in Iraq with Isis never happens in Turkey. It would be criminal. I guess this was the entertainment complex of its day. Good sharpness and natural looking colour. Tfs. Edit. It just dawned on me that this IS Aphrodisias! I checked another image and sure enough it is. The museum there was great. http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Middle_East/Turkey/Aegean/Aydin/Aphrodisias/photo408195.htm

    Hello Roger,

    Have not seen one of these since I was a kid in 1960's Brisbane, Australia. They phased them out for diesel in the 70's and electric trains in the 80's. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. I am half expecting to see Casey Jones! Wishing now I had of gone from Durango to Silverton in Colorado by steam train. Excellent colour and saturation. Tfs.
