    Hello Pierre,

    Looks like Sandgate, a northern bay-side suburb of Brisbane, Australia.

    https://www.google.ro/maps/place/Sandgate+Queensland+4017,+Australia/@-27.320478,153.070113,3a,75y,244.79h,88.18t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1suNQWHZelxU8i10y4OT3BYw!2e0!4m2!3m1!1s0x6b93e2e2dc3a1859:0x502a35af3de97f0!6m1!1e1

    The palm trees look lush, green and tropical. Good sharpness and superb saturation. The fg concrete path adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Tfs!

    Hello Eleu,

    Splendid warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the rust red color of the rocky bg cliffs at right and the fg earth. The ghost town buildings add interest. The white building with the double red roof adds a fine focal point. The diagonal slope of the hill provides dynamism. Good sharpness and the splashes of green from the fg plants add to the color palette. Tfs!

    Hello Ike

    The river castle is unusual. It looks like the newer v notch was constructed to repel floating logs and debris when the river is in high flood. Good sharpness and the bg vineyards make a fine backdrop. The secondary stone castle near the summit of the bg hill adds symmetry and a good 2nd focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen

    Who'd have thought you would find an Irish Pub in Bendigo! I like the classical French style turret atop the hotel. Good sharpness and excellent framing and composition. The angled pov showing both facades is superb. Excellent shadow detail on the right. The blue sky makes a wonderful backdrop. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicolas

    I like the textural and tonal details captured in the fg snow. Very good sharpness and excellent graphic elements offered by the 2 dark silhouetted trees against the lighter sky and snow. Well composed using the rule of thirds. I like the long side shadows from the right. Tfs!

    Dear Chris
    A beautiful and interesting sculpture taken in the blue hour.
    Perfect lighting and exposed image.
    Nice low point of view.
    Interesting and original composition.
    It is sad that we are walking the Nazis in Europe today, as we did not have learned from  World War II.
    Kind regards

    Hi Sasha,

    The silhouetted bg span of the modern suspension bridge adds a nice graphic element against the late evening sky. The yellow bus at left contrasts well against the blue hour tones in the sky. Superb sharpness and well framed and composed. A good choice of shutter speed that does not blur the moving traffic too much. Tfs!

    Merhaba Murat,

    The distinctive, verdigris, coppery green color of the gazebo is certainly eye-catching. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Good pp work on the sky with the halo only just visible after a closer look. I like the diffused light and the reflections in the wet pavement, which also has good textural details. Tfs!

    Hello Ghislaine,

    Effective tight framing with superb sharpness and vibrant color with strong warm vs cold colour contrasts between the hot yellow and pink colors of the attire at right hanging out to dry and the faint blueish tones of the clothing at left. The orange walls and red door also enhance the color contrasts by contrasting with the blue shadowed fg. Tfs!

    Salut Philippe,

    A good downward pov on the castle and moat. From this elevation and high vantage point it looks like scale model or lifelike toy. Superb sharpness & the green cyan color of the clear clean water is amazing. Good side-lighting from the right. The shadowed bg makes a good bg to the mainly sunlit fg castle. Tfs!

    Ciao Carlo

    Missed this one. I like the ornate pattern of the iron grill gate and their wavy flowery designs. The fg grate across the window adds depth and layering but does not obscure the bg view much at all. Good sharpness and realistic looking colour, with excellent saturation and framing. The yellow ochre edges of the circular window contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Alexander

    The bright sunlit street at right contrasts wel against the shadowed portion of the image at left. Good sharpness and it looks a little like Mesta on Chios Island. I like the view of the 4 bg arches in 2 layers, nicely framed by the big central arch in the fg. Good to include some blue sky. And the path at right also adds perspective and lead in lines. Tfs!

    Hi Danos

    This part of Greece I am not familiar with. But it looks nice nevertheless. A wonderful warm vs cold color contrast between the blue sea and sky and the yellow red colours of the headland bg island, and roofs at right. Superb sharpness and a marvellous high pov. The fg branches add depth and layering. Tfs!

    Hello Wolfgang

    Good sharpness and the juxtaposing of the more traditional religious paintings at right against the more avante garde 'golden' Jesus image at right with the childlike bg figures is certainly eye-catching. The low level light has been well managed with some auxiliary light coming through the window at top left. Tfs!
