    Hi Brian!

    The Grand Canyon was simply awe inspiring, and I feel privileged to have seen it first hand. Good sharpness and marvellous warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and red rock. The fg pulpit rock makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Ciao Craig

    The wide angled lens barrewl distortion works well here. The fountain at the bottom on the right was absolutely crowded with both tourists and locals when I was there in August last year. Nice capture of the kiss. The amber building contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hi Aleksander

    I like the silver frame around the green forested park in the bg resembling that around an artists painting. The seated metallic statue is well positioned in the left of the frame. Good sharpness and excellent light contrasts. Tfs!

    Hello Satya,

    Effective use of partial or rather almost complete desaturation with only a pale tint of cyan in the sky. Good sharpness and the fg street has deep perspective lines converging towards the back and the group of boys emerging from the gated alley. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    This reminds me of a similar shot I took in Bergen. A girl was posing atop a crocodile like fish sculpture. This sculpture look modernistic and only vaguely resembles a horse. A nice Spring shot from the green park and the people are dressed accordingly. Tfs!

    Hello Georg,

    Magnificent symmetrical reflections of the majestic snow-capped mountains on the horizon with good density levels, contrasted light and color, and saturation. I like the triangular green wedge at right of forested slopes. Tfs!

    Salut Jean Jacques

    Perspective has been well managed here with no sign of any lens barrel distortion. Excellent sharpness and the sculptor, the donkey, and the roasting chicken are eye catching elements in this superb wall art. Really enjoyed Oberammergau despite only an hour there. Tfs!

    Amazing symmetrical reflections of the huge blue and white ship and smart choice of a vertical format. Good sharpness, color and saturation. The blue sky and white clouds mirror the color scheme of the boat. Tfs!

    Merhaba Burak Bey,

    A good high pov overlooking the city of Hong Kong which is even more crowded and congested than Istanbul! The fg skyscraper is more architecturally interesting than some of the soul less bg highrise office blocks. The haze adds mood. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    Hello Ney,

    Good density levels that have given superb light contrasts with crisp clean whites and blacks and excellent saturation. I like the splendid sharpness and the wonderful warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the reddish pink facades of the buildings. Tfs!

    Hello Wolfgang,

    As I recall much of Austria is close to northern Italy. Lovely aerial perspective of receding tones here with the fg layers dark and gradating to light towards the back. Nice repetition of the mountain ranges. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Hi Miguel,

    Effective tight framing and a surprise on opening to find this is not one of those direction signs with distances to Paris, Rome, New York, Cairo etc. It looks like competition for rooms in Pokhara is fierce! I might have used fill in flash to temper the strong backlight. Tfs!

    Ciao Luciano,

    My kind of beach. No highrise, crowds or rows and rows of deckchairs and umbrellas for hire! The grove at coconut palms at left add a suitable tropical look and feel and suggest warmth or heat. Good sharpness and the reddish yellow sand contrasts well against the blue sea and sky. Tfs!

    Hello Miguel,

    A colorful array of pastries and cakes that look delicious! Excellent color sharpness and confectionery! The prices look reasonable at least compared with tourist haunts in Vienna. The diagonal axis of the counter adds dynamism. The shopkeeper looks ready for business! Tfs!

    Bonjour, Ourania

    The warm honey colored yellow wall and pink bougainvillea and oleander flowers contrast well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the curved lane provides ideal lead in lines and perspective. The parked bike makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Didi,

    I like the multiple arched bridge on the horizon. Nice reflections in the river and the hilltop fort or castle makes a fine focal point. Subtle warm cold color contrasts between the patches of blue sky and the yellow green vegetation. Tfs!

    Hi Ike

    Are they cctv cameras mounted in the crevice at right? I like the minimalist color and superb sharpness, as well as the wonderful tonal range and variety of textures. A good exposure on the bright highlights at right seeping in from outside the cave. Tfs!

    Hi Brian!

    I know this spot a short walk from Lindos on Rhodes and had a swim in the bay as well as walked to the cliff overlooking the monastery depicted here. Good sharpness and color. Looks like you were fighting against the strong backlight here. I like the 2 small boats in St Pauls Bay. Tfs!
