    Hello Silvio,
    The panoramic frame suits the composition perfectly. I like how the ruined columns make their way sedately round the frame depicting a gentle curve. The whole is very well exposed with excellent colours and clarity.

    Hello Denis,
    A very attractive composition with agreeable lights and colours. The old barn is well placed in the frame and makes a delightful focal point for the scene.

    Hello Ike,
    The warm evening sky makes an excellent backdrop for the silhouetted skyscrapers and attendant cranes. Well spotted this photographic opportunity and very well realised.

    Perfect framing of this architectural detail to create a superb graphical composition. Made all the more compelling by the excellent colour contrasts and the splendid clarity.

    Hello Serge,
    I like the point of view looking across the square towards the focal point offered by the church. The image is well exposed and has excellent colour contrasts and sharpness. A typical Alsation village with its half-timbered buildings and flower planters.

    Hello Gert,
    The statuary is indeed something reminiscent of the Communist era with its emphasis on the working proletariat. The man with his vivid yellow carrier bag and bright clothing makes an interesting contrast with the drab surrounds. It is interesting to see nobody has apparently attempted to apply graffiti to the statues. A well realised composition with a story to tell.

    Hello John,
    I also like beer, but like Gert I drink it mainly on holiday. Excellent capture of this man with his superb pair of dray horses. The oblique point of view shows the scene to great effect, and makes man and horse star of the show. Very good technical realisation. Lovely to see traditions like this kept up in the modern world.

    Hello Carlo,
    A carefully framed minimalist composition that makes for an excellent study in colour and texture. I like the lighting and the long shadow cast by the shrub. Superb rendering of the textural detail. Very sophisticated photography.

    Hello Bulent,
    I am not sure I see Golum, but I do see some wonderful colours and textures. The light is very well managed resulting in a particular mood that is most pleasant. No doubt, the Lord of the Rings trilogy has done wonders for the New Zealand tourist industry. It is such a pity it is so far away from Europe.

    Hello Murat,
    The helicopter seemingly suspended in space makes an eye-catching focal point. The people checking out the exhibits enliven the scene. The high ISO has given rise to some significant noise in parts of the image and caused a degradation of the colours imho.

    Hello Roger,
    Splendid vista across the rooftops of Talinn towards the cruise liners. The multitude of towers have the effect of drawing the viewer into the scene and giving the composition perspective and depth. The image is well exposed with good colours and clarity.

    No doubt this curious construction has done much to boost the local economy. The point of view shows the intricacies of the structure to great effect. It sits well against that beautiful sky. Very good technical quality.

    Hello John,
    The castle restored to its former glory makes a splendid focal point sat under the stormy sky, which seems very apt to the subject given its history. The two photographers enliven the scene, whilst the lady's red top adds an agreeable splash of colour. Excellent technical realisation very well supported by the comprehensive note.

    Dali is a very popular artist as one can judge by the many visitors to his museum. The monumental artwork on the left makes a splendid focal point set amidst all the animation. Very well exposed with excellent colours and clarity.

    Hi Roger

    I know this spot. I came from Helsinki in Finland on the moored Viking line boats in the bg. Good depth and layering with the turret and chimney stack. I like the flattened perspective from the zoom. Tfs!
