    Hello Gueguel Miguel

    The warm cold color contrast between the yellow alluvial sand and the blue sky and water is superb. Good sharpness and the blue bg mountains on the horizon make a fine focal point. Punchy light contrasts with excellent saturation and framing. Tfs!

    Hello Miguel

    I like the superb warm cold color contrast between the red baubles on the decorated Christmas tree, and the blue streak of neon light at left and the cyan hues at the top. Adequate sharpness, and the white fairy lights on the rails suggest snow. Tfs!

    Hi Ike,

    Nice capture of this stylish northern Portuguese bridge, with a superb high pov and good sharpness and saturation. I like the shallow dof and the blue skylight reflections in the water. The fg shrubs nicely frame the scene and provide depth and layering. Tfs!

    Ciao Sasha

    Fantastic warm versus cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the golden red foliage of Autumn as well as the red roof top in the centre of the image. Good sharpness and the road at right adds perspective. The diagonal line of the bg hill provides dynamism. Tfs!

    Bonjour, JJ,

    I like the repetition of the cuckoo clocks at right and the Santas throughout the fg. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. The reflections in the window have been well managed. Excellent perspective and the angled framing works well. Tfs!

    Hello Murat

    I like how the triangular tops of the bg highrise mirror and echo the shape of the big fg Christmas tree in the Square. The people add life and scale & animate the scene. Good sharpness and color with excellent saturation. Perspective has been well managed with the vertical lines placed centrally. Tfs!

    Hello Burak

    I loved summer in Turkey. Cisme, Bodrum, Marmaris, Fethiye, Kas, Olympus, Antalya and a few Greek Islands thrown in as well. The yellow tourist boat contrasts superbly against the blue sea and sky. Good sharpness and the holidaymakers enliven and animate the scene. The bg town of Ayvalik adds interest and context. Tfs~

    Hi Piotr!

    Wonderful back-light on the snow with the added bonus of a superb sunset with orange skies. I like the textural and tonal details visible in the snow as well as the repetition of patterns and shapes formed by the snow-clad conifer trees. The glistening parts at right are nice. Tfs!

    Hi Ray,

    Effective tight framing with a wonderful warm vs cold color contrast between the blue sky and the red brown bricks of the church. Impeccable sharpness and the red flowers in the fg at right add a welcome splash of color. Perspective has been well managed with the vertical lines placed centrally. Tfs!

    Hello Danos,

    A superb high pov overlooking the key focal point of the multiple arched bridge. Good sharpness and attractive warm colors. I like the undulating, wavy appearance of the bridge. The diagonal axis adds dynamism. Good perspective and well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Hello Satya

    I love all the colorful fishing boats and nets. Wonderful sharpness and saturation with superb repetition. Nice warm cold colour contrasts between the blue and yellow. Good reflections in the harbour. The crowded boat in the distance makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Satya,

    The fog imparts mood, mystery and atmosphere. Good inclusion of the man walking down the street at right. I might have added a little brightness to compensate for the gloomy darkness. I recall when it was 10c everyone in Nepal was complaining it was freezing cold. Tfs!

    Hello Serge,

    Looks cold. Very cold! I like the superb sharpness and minimalist colors. Just blue grey white and black. The fg branches add deptha nd a nice graphic element as well as framing the icy river scene. Not a great day for swimming! Tfs!

    Bonsoir Emilius,


    It's great that this was rebuilt after being destroyed by the tides in 2010. I like the pattern which is reminiscent of a Gingko leaf or a mushroom / fungi design. A good warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and the red pants on the guy at right. Good sharpness and density levels. Merci pour ce partage!

    Ciao Carlo,

    A wonderful blue sky that contrasts so well against the red fleur de lis decorations on the Christmas tree. The people add scale and context to the piazza. The magnificent building at right is one of my fondest memories of Florence. Tfs!

    Hello Eleu,

    Good tight framing and I like the warm cold color contrast between the rust red coats of the seals and the blue water. Good sharpness and you seemed to have captured a minor altercation at left! The seal at left appears to be communicating a 'back off' message! Tfs!

    Effective tight framing on the small blue fishing boat with reasonable sharpness and nice reflections in the water. The rickety wooden pier at right adds good lead in lines. Punchy light contrasts with a good exposure on the highlights. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    It looks almost central American in origin, Mayan perhaps was my first thought. Then a second look and I am now thinking Nepalese or north Indian. Good use of flash with no hard shadows or glare spots. Excellent sharpness and superb textural and tonal details in the sculpture. Tfs!

    Hi Roland

    Unusual to see St Marks Square covered in water, and I like the sepia like color tones. A good decisive moment catching the man at right apparently slipping. Nice reflections in the water. Excellent sharpness for a nocturnal shot. Not so easy sometimes. Tfs!
