    Hi Benny

    I love the arrows of color pointing in the same general direction of forward movement as the motorcyclist. The various bright and cheerful colors are eye-catching too. Good sharpness and a fine decisive moment. Tfs.

    Ciao Maurizio

    So it's not only Greece and Holland that have windmills! Italy has them too. Good sharpness and the fg vegetation adds depth and layering. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red triangular peak of the windmill, the yellow red walls, and the blue sky. Superb reflections. Tfs.

    Hi Iulian

    A nice dedication to the fallen heroes of WWI in eastern Romania. The cross is quite big and the people provide scale. Excellent sharpness and well framed and composed. The darker toned cross also sets up a nice graphic element against the lighter toned sky. Tfs.

    Witaj Ryszard,

    Perspective has been well managed with no discernible lens barrel distortion either side. A pleasant diffused light with good sharpness and a wonderful warm vs cold color contrast between the pale blue grey sky and the yellow sandstone building. Tfs.

    Bonjour, Christian

    Fantastic symmetrical reflections in the mirror-like surface of the water, with good sharpness, density levels and saturation. The fg vegetation frames the scene nicely and provides depth and layering. The sunlit patch at right contrasts well against the shadowed area at left. Tfs.

    Hi Ike

    The lunar moonscape of the Mt Etna lava and ash fields is well depicted in this superb image. Good sharpness and smart choice of a vertical format. The pale reddish yellow at the bottom contrasts well against the soft blue sky. Tfs.

    Salut Philippe

    A scene I saw repeated in the Albanian Riviera. Too often the riders are young guys with too much testosterone and not enough brains. I am always watching to see that they stay outside the area reserved for swimming. There have been fatalities in the past. That said, a fine action shot that conveys the action and movement. Tfs.

    I like the repetition of the weather vane structures at the top. Good sharpness and excellent framing and composition. The angled pov has allowed a contrast in shadow and light. Tfs.

    Hello Mariusz,

    The red brick walls of the bg building and the red roof contrast well against the blue sky to give a pleasing warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and the flower garden at left adds a lively splash of color. Tfs.

    The Irish themed bear is unmistakable with the leprechaun hat and green 4 leafed clovers. Good sharpness and nice to catch a glimpse of the other countries entrants in the bg. Excellent sharpness and it appears like the Russian entry at right. Tfs.

    Czesc Maciej,

    The curving rails of the tramlines remind me of Istanbul, and also lead the eye towards the bright yellow tram, which contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The castle-like structure at the back adds a great focal point. Tfs.

    Incredible repetition of the moored boats in the harbour, and taken from a superb high viewpoint. Good sharpness and color saturation. The fg ridge of trees at right adds depth and layering. The crowded bg beach looks like a popular spot for swimming. Tfs.

    Hello Malgo,

    I sometimes get all hot and sweaty just walking, never mind jogging or running! I don't know how they do it. The red and blue colors of their shirts contrast strongly and I like the bird's eye pov from above. Fantastic sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs.

    Hello Pedro,

    A very attractive waterfall has been captured here and it looks like a superb spot to swim on a hot summer's day. Excellent sharpness and the perfect shutter speed used has allowed just enough motion blur to suggest movement, with being too silky and blurred as in a longer time exposure. The fg branches and leaves add depth. Tfs.

    Hi Murat

    Good use of differential focus to isolate and emphasize the statues. I like the opposing directions of eye contact. Mary is looking down at her deceased son and the other Jesus at right is looking up to God? Excellent shadow detail despite the lack of light. Tfs.

    This one caught my eye, and held it. The maypole of what looks like a garland of white flowers has been superbly framed leaving no unwasted space. Good sharpness and graphic elements. The blue sky makes a great backdrop. Tfs.

    Hello Ourania,

    A superb daily life scene of the workmen repairing the damaged pipes. We don't often appreciate them until they are desperately needed. Good sharpness and efficient and effective tight framing. The yellow battery and boots contrasts well against the blue tones of the man's uniform at left.

    Bonjour Philippe,


    I like the flattened perspective from the zoom lens bringing the apparent distance between the bg mountain and the village much closer than they really are. Good sharpness and natural looking color. The building either side act as a nice frame. Tfs.

    Hi Ricardo,

    The dual white painted fences either side add strong converging lines and diminishing linear perspective towards the back where the chapel is perfectly positioned at the vanishing point. Good sharpness and the lush green lawns compliment the scene. Tfs.

    Striking warm cold color contrasts between the blue sea and sky and the red painted wooden structure and fences. The actress sculpture makes a fine focal point. Good sharpness and density levels and well framed and composed. Tfs.
