    Hello Ike,

    Good density levels with excellent sharpness and saturation. Nice reflections with the kayak and 2 rowers animating the scene. The bg fountains glimpsed through the framing trees adds a fine focal point. The fg vegetation and palm tree leaves add a natural frame at the top. Tfs.

    Witaj Maciej!

    The seated children and their dog at left animate the scene and provide scale. Good sharpness, saturation and colour. The dried yellow grass and red rooftop contrast superbly against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hola Angel!

    This looks similar to a shot I took in Lisboa, Portugal. A fine downward pov and taken from a superb high vantage point. The street in the centre nicely funnels the eye towards the back and adds great lead in lines and perspective. Tfs.

    A good closeup of the bird with a nice carpet of yellow and pink flowers in the fg. Excellent sharpness and a nice shallow dof, with superb color and saturation. A good exposure on the white highlights on its neck. Tfs.

    Hello Serge,

    Good lighting contrasts and density levels which have added a superb graphic element. The fg branches nicely frame the small bg boat. The fg fence adds depth and layering. Tfs.

    Bonjour Pierre,

    Reasonable sharpness with a pleasant, diffused light and excellent framing and composition. The twin lions framing and guarding the key add a suitable interesting component. I might have cropped the black object at the bottom as it adds nothing. Tfs.

    Hello Stephen,

    Another fine Sicilian architectural gem, with good sharpness and effective tight framing. Perspective has been well managed. I like the soft pastel colors and symmetry afforded by the two pairs cherubs at the top. The circular seat backs add repetition and interest. Tfs.

    Hello Bev,

    The dual sides of the canal add a natural converging set of lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective towards the back and the vanishing point with a distant bridge. The swan or waterbird at right animates the scene. Good colour and sharpness. Tfs.

    I like the cracked and dried mudlike texture of the sculptures and their symmetry and opposing angles with one at left upright but leaning slightly left and the other in an almost horizontal plane. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Tfs.

    The wide angled, panoramic format suits this image perfectly. Excellent sharpness, color and saturation with nice reflections in the water. The diagonal fg shoreline adds good dynamism. Good placement of the horizon line away from the centre. Tfs.

    Bonjour, chère Cricri,

    The red sails of the windsurfers contrast strongly against the reflected blue skylight in the water. Wonderful symmetrical reflections with good sharpness. Taken from a good, elevated pov. The dark poplar trees at right acts as a partial frame and adds a nice graphic element. Tfs.

    A good aerial view of this spectacular wilderness area of Newfoundland. The jewel like azure lakes and the snow capped mountains add interest. Excellent sharpness and the barren red plateau contrasts nicely against the cooler blue tones of the sky. Tfs.

    Hello Murat,

    An appropriate upload for Memorial Day with good sharpness, color and saturation. I recognized this as the Iwo Jima flag immediately. It was duplicated after 9/11 with part of the ruins from the WTC. A nice warm cold colour contrast between the bronze statues, the red stripes of Old Glory, and the bg blue sky. Tfs.

    Hello Brenda,

    I like the repetitive patterns of the roof structure, mirrored by their shadows below. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts with superb choice of a vertical frame to accentuate the height. The people add scale and context as well as animating the scene. Tfs.

    It looks to be a very beautiful part of the north Israeli coastline. The seacave is well captured with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The turquoise colour of the sea is amazing. The diagonal arch at left adds dynamism. Tfs.

    I like the angled pov showing 2 facades of the tiny church. Good sharpness and realistic minimalist colours with natural looking saturation. The faded red terracotta roof contrasts well against the pale grey blue sky. Tfs.
