    Salut Pierre,

    Good sharpness and the low level interior light has been well managed. Excellent colour and saturation. The draped window at right augments the available light. The daily life tapestry of days gone by on the wall adds interest. Good graphism of the dark cross against the white skylight. Tfs!

    Hello Brian!

    Good to see a ladder at right as those embankment walls look super steep for anyone that accidentally falls into the canal. Excellent use of diminishing linear perspective with the dual sides of the canal converging towards a vanishing point at the back. Good sharpness and nice reflections. Excellent repetition of patterns and shapes in the architecture. Tfs!

    Bonjour Stephen

    I've been there years ago and it hasn't changed much at all. Nice repetition of the alternating black and white umbrellas along the footpath. The markets are one of the highlights when visiting Hobart. Good sharpness and I like the wide angled panoramic crop. Tfs!

    Hi Neyvan

    The graceful bg bridge arching across the channel in the centre bg makes a fine focal point. You were so lucky with the weather. It was miserable and grey with rain showers when I was in northern Norway. Nice blue skylight reflections in the water and the jagged green peaks are a delight. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    At least you had sunny weather with blue skies. It was heavily overcast with occasional showers the first time I visited. I think I have passed through Prague 2 or 3 times now. Charles Bridge is always a good choice for sightseers. There is live entertainment and artists at work all along the bridge. Excellent sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Hello Sasha,

    That is certainly a novel and unique way to recycle and reuse disposable plastic bottles! What a great idea! The mixture of white and green makes it look like a traditional snowclad green pine tree. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe,

    Looks like a great spot for a barbecue and a glass of wine! Nice reflections in the tranquil water and the ripples made by the duck or water bird add charm. The sunlit yellow green grass at right contrasts well against the cooler, grey blue hues at left. The dark tree trunks frame the water nicely and provide a nice graphic element. Tfs!

    Hello Besnard!

    Amazing repetion of the windsurfer vehicles sans sails. Their masts add a nice graphic element against the lighter grey sky. A pleasant diffused light and the angled row adds dynamism and perspective. The old pier stumps along the beach add interest and the bg spire top left makes a fine focal point in the distance. Tfs!

    Bonsoir Jean,

    I often agonize over whether to include my own shadow or not but here it forms an integral part of the composition and adds a nice graphic element to boot! The wheel tracks curving through the snow in the fg add depth and perspective with good lead in lines towards the top right. Tfs!

    Merhaba Burak,

    Wonderful repetition of the fallen leaves littering the flagstone path. The dual sides of the path converging towards the back add excellent lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Good sharpness a soft diffused light. I like the splash of yellow near the vanishing point and white sky. Tfs!

    Hello Ana,

    The goats add a centre of interest at left. These people certainly don't look wealthy. But I know from my travels to India that is a very polarized country and there are a sizable upper & middle class. eg, when I was in Siliguri junction there were luxury air con buses with airline style reclining seats and plush carpet etc side by side with rust buckets on creaky wheels. If you have money in India you can still live well. That said this is still a superb daily life scene with excellent sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. Tfs!

    Hi Wolfgang,

    Good textural and tonal details in the fg and the exposure is spot on with no appreciable overexposure. Excellent sharpness and punchy light contrasts. The dark green trees add a welcome graphic element against the lighter snow. It looks like it can get seriously windy up here as evidenced by the tree at left which has been snapped off in the middle at some stage of its life. Tfs!

    Hi Wolfgang,

    A superb high pov overlooking the twin spires of the bg cathedral building. I like the angled pov showcasing 2 facades. Superb sharpness and the red roof tops contrast well against the blue grey sky to give a pleasing warm vs cold color contrast. The diagonal wall in the fg adds both dynamism and perspective. Tfs!

    Wow! A stunning landscape from Italy with the snow capped peaks making a wonderful backdrop. A splendid high vantage point overlooking the silvan valley and small village in the mountain pass, which makes an ideal focal point. Natural looking colour with impeccable sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Maciej

    I am planning on going to Serbia soon so this is of interest to me. A wonderful blue sky. I have only had 1 day of weather like this since early November last year which makes you appreciate it all the more. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts with excellent saturation. The soft yellow ochre color of the building contrasts splendidly against the blue sky too to give a nice warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

    Hello, Ike,

    I like the warm golden color tones and balanced symmetry of the composition. Superb sharpness and the lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective take the eye deep into the image towards the back and the stained glass window is well positioned at the vanishing point. Tfs!

    Hello Achim,

    Extremely well managed backlight here with good shadow detail and a good exposure despite the difficult lighting. Excellent sharpness and the people add scale and follow the the most obvious line of diminishing linear perspective by using the path and stairs at right. At first glance I thought that this was Morocco. Excellent density levels and strong light contrasts. Tfs!

    Hello Brian!

    The resting horse and sheep in the fg at left add considerable charm to this shot of the picturesque English countryside as a marvellous backdrop. Good sharpness and a pleasant overall diffused light with just a few patches of sunlight breaking through the thick clouds. The chapel of Lancing College makes a fine focal point in the bg. Tfs!

    Ciao Luciano

    Effective tight framing and good management of the low interior light levels. The ornate Baroque style of architecture and decorations in gold are amazing. The male version of the caryatids at left supporting the pillars or rather an integral part of the pillar itself are eyecatching.

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    Good graphic elements offered by the dark wooden chalet against the white snow. A soft diffused light with excellent sharpness and good to catch the near blizzard conditions with the falling snow. I like the simple, minimalist composition. The diagonal slope of the terrain adds dynamism. Tfs!
