    Hi Stephen.

    The red French icebreaker vessel contrasts well against the blue sky. I guess this is part of the Antarctic research ensemble. The angled pov on the ship adds both dynamism and diminishing linear perspective. The blue stripe within the ship itself enlivens the warm cold colour coontrast. Interesting to see what looks like the Chile flag along with the French tricolor and the Australian flag with the Union Jack in the top left corner. Tfs!

    Hello Bev,

    Looks like this big granite boulder has been carved into centuries or even thousands of years ago in prehistoric times. The man at right adds scale. The man made construction at far right in the distance is roughly the same color hue as the rock. The blue sky makes a great backdrop. Tfs!

    Hi Satya

    A fantastic daily life scene from the local fruit market with good sharpness and superb shadow detail. I like the woman shopper at left carefully examining the fruit for flaws and imperfections. The green bananas in the bg add interest. Are they used in local cooking? The sunlit section in the =mid distances enlivens the tonal range. Tfs!

    Hi Danos,

    The aquamarine and turquoise colours in the water are lovely. Good sharpness and a marvellous blue sky backdrop. I like the hilltop village in red stone. Nice repetition of the boats along the foreshore. Excellent saturation. the V shaped tongue of land at left features prominently and adds a graphic element agaisnt the lighter sky. Tfs!

    Hello Burak,

    The performers red shirt contrasts well against the bg blue sky to give a pleasing warm vs cold colour contrast. A superb upward pov with impeccable sharpness. Good to have the greenery of the trees at the bottom and not obscuring the man on the highwire. Excellent graphic qualities of the dark wires and poles against the lighter sky. Tfs!

    Hi Omid,

    Hi Craig,

    It was good of Deniz to show you around. The mosque on the horizon at far right adds place and context. Good sharpness and the bright cheerful colours of the boat contrast starkly against the dull grey sky and its reflection in the water. The trash rack float adds interest. I saw a nifty scooping machine in the Bosporus that sucks up all the floating debris in the water and spits out the jellyfish! Tfs!

    Hi Malgo,

    A stunning view of the Rio are coastline. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. One way to cut the haze is to reduce brightness, increase constrast, and boost the saturation. The fg vegetation adds depth as well as framing the scene nicely. The sheltered cove and beach at right looks lovely. Stay cool in the southern summer! Tfs!

    Hello Piotr

    I like the silhouetted pine trees in the mid distance. Their dark forms add a wonderful graphic element against the lighter slopes of the bg mountains. good sharpness and the warm orange glow in the sky top right contrasts well against the predominant grey blue tones to give a nice warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    I like the muted, pastel colours and interesting rustic building partly submerged in the ground with the stone walls and grass covered roof showing. The dried yellow vegetation in the bottom left corner contrasts well against the grey blue sky. I might have cropped a little of the sky to get a 1/3 ratio. Tfs!

    I like the 2 fg ducks in the centre as they animate the shot. The lake and majestic bg mountains make a superb backdrop. The storm adds a dramatic mood to the shot. Amazing repetition of the dark green conifer trees on the forested bg slopes. I like the gradation in the water from yellow to green. Tfs!

    I like the warm sepia toned tints and colors. Goo use of the old stone arch to frame the bg scene. The partially silhouetted man in the red shirt walking towards the bg adds a lot to the shot. The trio at far left just entering the frame nicely counterbalance the solitary man. Tfs!

    Salut Neyvan,

    A superb upward pov on the grandiose old building and perspective has been very well managed. The verticals have wisely been positioned in the centre allowing the tilted far right and far left lines to fall where they will. The tan color of the facade is unusual. Excellent sharpness and the modern highrise at left adds an old vs new theme. Tfs!

    Hello Carlo

    I like the angled pov on the square. The statue makes a fine focal point. The blue sky is a marvellous backdrop and sets up a wonderful warm vs cold colour contrast against the pale orange facade of the building top left. Good sharpness. I like the contrast between the shadowed area at right and the sunlit part at left. Tfs!

    Hello Wolfgang

    A perfect exposure on the bright highlights of the snow with the dark old tree adding excellent graphic elements against the lighter sky. Good sharpness and smart choice of a vertical frame to accentuate the height of the gnarled old tree. Looks like the wind is strong at times or the top of the tree was hit by lightning. Tfs!

    Hello Ike

    Looks like an Australian eucalyptus tree of some sort. It nicely frames the fallen branch in the lake at right and the bg shoreline. The channel at left adds good lead in lines and sharpness is excellent throughout. Nice reflections in the tranquil water. The irises in the workshops are lovely. Tfs!

    Hello Achim

    I am planning on going to Bucharest soon so this is interesting. Nice repetition of the tables and chairs waiting for the summer crowds! Great sharpness and well framed and composed. The diagonal path slashing through the centre adds dynamism. I like the diffused light & soft pastel colours. Nice repetition also of the arches along the balcony. Tfs!

    From one arch in the fg to another set at McDonalds in the bg! Good sharpness and superb framing. The people add scale and animate the scene. I like the soft diffused light and colorful street scene. The bg tower and spire make a superb focal point positioned nicely over the vanishing point. Tfs!

    Hi Sasha

    Looks similar to some of the Romanian and Greek Orthodox styles of religious art. Good sharpness and saturation. Punchy light contrasts and well framed and composed. If this was a composite image stitched from 3, you've done a superb an flawless job. The 2 half circles top and bottom nicely frame the Virgin Mary. Tfs!
