    I noticed quite a few of these riverside cafes and teahouses with chairs and tables in the water. Even took a photo of some ducks swimming by. Good sharpness and a superb high vantage point. The diagonal line of the rocks adds dynamism. I like the thatched fg roof. Its pale straw yellow color contrasts well against the blue green water.

    Hello Angel

    The red columns and stacked fence contrast superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and density levels that have given punchy light contrasts and superb saturation. The flowers add a nice splash of color. The distant yacht makes a fine focal point. Tfs.

    Hi Stephen,

    Deep perspective and fine framing on the ornamental fountain. Good sharpness and nice reflections with a pleasant dappled light across the rippled water. The dark bare trees add good graphic elements. The statues add focal points. Tfs.

    Bonjour Gert,

    Good perspective and sharpness and especially as this is an analogue film shot. Good deep lead in lines with superb linear perspective. The people add scale and animate the scene. The distinctive tiered roofs add place and context. Tfs.

    Hello Maciej,

    A simple but powerful minimalist composition which resembles a human face. Albeit a sad one :( Wonderful warm cold color colour contrasts between the red and blue colors. I like the ornate designs and patterns around the edges and in the balcony. Tfs.

    Hello Jean!

    The tilted rock strata add dynamism. The green seaweed on the more deeply submerged rocks adds interest and the surf breaking over the shallower fg rocks adds dynamism. Good depth with excellent sharpness throughout. Nice warm cold color contrasts. Tfs.

    I like how the green fg tree branches over arch and frame the smaller bg white flowering apricot or almond trees. Good sharpness and the hazy blue green bg forest adds layering and depth and makes a good backdrop. Tfs.

    I never made it that far north in England. Liverpool looks like an interesting city to explore! Nice reflections in the water and good sharpness with dramatic cloud patterns in the sky. The dark boat adds graphic elements against the lighter toned bg. Tfs.

    Hi Hunkar

    I've sat out on the upper floor terrace of the Shake Shack a few times with a meal and drink admiring the Bosporus. Good sharpness and the distinctive red tram adds a nice warm cold color contrast agaisnt the blue grey asphalt. And this is Beyoglu too. I initially and wrongly thought it was still Taksim. Tfs.

    Hello Christiane!

    Missed this one. All work and no play! The elderly man with the walking stick animates the scene. Wonderful use of the fg arch as a framing device. The bg blue sky contrasts well against the yellow facade of the building. The multicolored leadlight window at left adds interest. Tfs

    Hello Cricri,

    The dark fish-trap against the lighter toned wall adds a marvellous graphic element. Good sharpness and effective tight framing with no part of the scene wasted. The undulating red tiles in profile at the top contrast well against the blue sky. Excellent textural and tonal details in the crumbling and peeling wall. Tfs.

    Missed this one. Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the orange sunset skies and the blue hues, enhanced by the red roofs of the lighthouse and storehouses at right to give a superb warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Perspective has been well managed placing the verticals centrally. Tfs.

    A superb daily life scene of the boy seated in front of the the mother and baby section of the wall mural. Striking colors of red and yellow tapering off to blue at the top. The b&w charcoal like sketch of the couple at left with what looks like the local equivalent of Pringles, balance the composition. Tfs.

    Well composed using the rule of thirds with good sharpness and natural looking colour. The two conical towers nicely bookend and frame the shot. Effective tight framing and superb sidelight and shadow detail. The fg shrubs add depth and a splash of greenery. Tfs.

    Hello dear Lisa

    Seems Australians are now living in a fascist State. It's good to see you still popping in to TE from time to time. Its all about the minerals and natural resources on the land that the greedy multinational companies want unfettered access to without having to pay indigenous people any royalties. The sooner this Neo liberal Con government supporting this land grab is gone, the better. The gum leaves are making me homesick. The analogy of "where there's smoke there's fire" comes to mind in this image.

    Hello Gerrit,

    A superb daily life scene of the three women, with good sharpness and realistic color. Effective tight framing and well framed and composed. The old man at right seems detached from the older woman. Maybe they had a minor argument? Then again he looks more Spanish than African in descent. He might be just a next door neighbor in a town house arrangement. Tfs.

    Hi Sasha,

    Punchy light contrasts on account of the superb density levels. Realistic saturation and I like the angled pov on the tombstone showing 2 facades. Excellent shadow detail and nice repetition of the green painted gate columns in the bg. Tfs.
