    Hello Ourania,
    A beautiful study in shadow play. The man and his shadow is well positioned and I like the jagged shadows occasioned by the adjacent building, which adds to the graphism. Excellent rendition in black and white.

    Hello Mike,
    Not the sort of thing to leave hanging around. But, you can't possibly miss it in a cycle park! Looks great against the nicely textured brick wall.

    Hello Joao,
    A well composed image with this attractive building on the left (the Town Hall perhaps) nicely placed in the frame and the wall and railings sweeping in from the right offering an interesting lead-line. Excellent light management and good control over white balance. Superb colours and clarity.

    Hello Gert

    What I like most is that it is completely devoid of hordes of tourists and exuding authenticity. Good sharpness and nice textural contrasts between the cobblestones at left and flagstones at right. Tfs!

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    The single hot pink car contrasts well with the blue sky to give a wonderful warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and framing. The curving fg road provides strong lead in lines and perspective. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre

    An unusual cathedral that would be hard o spot in winter with its predominant snowy white tones. The belltower on a slight incline is an eyecatching focal point. Tfs!

    Ciao John,

    Nice repetition of the stepped decoration of the roof struts. Good sharpness and the mossy green appearance adds an old world sharm. The al fresco diners animate the scene and provide scale. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    It looks like a planetary convention! Good repetition of the spherical shapes and excellent dof & sharpness throughout. The top light works well here and adds graphic elements with some balls in shadow and others in full shade. Tfs!

    Hi Mariusz

    I remember visiting this place but none of my shots were of jaw dropping quality so thanks for the pleasant reminder. Good perspective and sharpness with amazing repetition of the empty wooden benches. Tfs!

    Hi Ike

    I recall these doors well. If I remember correctly, there were 12 bronzed panels. Good textural and tonal details in the bas relief. The circular Tholos adds interest. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge,

    'Surprising India' is an understatement. The young man was not a good ambassador for his country with his boorish and inconsiderate behaviour. But a wonderful sunset capitalising on the cloud acting as a natural filter. Tfs!

    Hi Ryszard,

    So many places in the Czech Republic that are outside Prague & Bruno and well worth a visit, such as the imposing castle depicted here. The fortifications and ramparts look impregnable. Tfs!
