    Ciao Carlo,

    Looks a little soft and could benefit with some sharpening. But the composition and subject matter are superb. I like the soft diffused lighting & superb shadow details. The covered bridge with its many arched spans makes an ideal focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Kari,

    I've only been to the Thames in central London. It was cleaner and more fast flowing than I expected. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the boats. The dark ominous bg skies contrast well with the sunny fg. Tfs!

    Hello Paul,

    Bright cheerful colors with impeccable sharpness and superb perspective. Well framed with no wasted space around the colorful window and not too tightly framed either. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio,

    Looks a little like Matera. Fantastic elevated pov with good sharpness and the tightly clustered stone buildings atop the hill surrounding the citadel. Excellent clarity and lighting. Tfs!

    Bonjour Krzysztof,

    Nice repetition of the fg yellow flowers and lovely reflections in the still waters of the pond. Good sharpness and the bg patches of blue sky contrast well with the yellow flowers to give a nice warm cold color contrast. Great density levels and correct exposure too. Tfs!

    Hello Rob,

    They do the same in Siberia which has even harsher winters than NYC. You do not really appreciate warm sunshine when you live in a sub tropical climate and don't have to endure 6-9 months of brutally cold weather. At first I thought this was one photo but on a closer look I noticed there are 2 images skilfully joined together. Tfs!

    Ola Jorge!

    Reminds me a little of Schindler's List Museum in Krakow, Poland or the Bratislava Jewish museum in Slovakia. One of the darkest chapters in human history for sure. A good upward pov with each photo telling a poignant story.

    Hi Ryszard,

    I like teh wide angled, panoramic format and the aerial perspective of receding tones ranging from dark in the fg to lighter at the back. Adequate sharpness and well composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge,

    Well framed and composed and taken from an excellent high vantage point. Good sharpness but perhaps more contrast with whiter whites and blacker blacks? I like the terraces at right. Tfs!

    Dear Ike,

    The 2 tall flags left & right nicely frame the entourage of altar boys & priests. The men in black suits with the sunshade for the bishop or priest add interest. Tfs!
