    Hola Angel,

    Punchy light contrasts with good sharpness and excellent repetition of the distinctive cross hatched houses. The people add scale and animate the scene. Nice motion blue of the running boy's legs! The vertical format was a good choice. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,
    \
    Interesting covered bridges with the 3 towers immediately catching attention. The fg road adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. The lone cyclist at right makes a good focal point. A pleasant, diffused light and soft pastel colours. Tfs!

    Hello Nicolas,

    Good repetition of the apricots although it might be that the priest is wondering which culprit shook the trees to make so many of them all fall at once. Good sharpness and the curved road adds good lead in lines. I might have boosted contrast a little. Tfs!

    Bonjour john

    Lovely shadow play on the left facade of building in the lake. The bridge adds good lead in lines. Excellent sharpness, color and saturation. A wonderful blue sky that contrasts well against the yellow green water weeds in the pond. Tfs!

    Ciao Carlo

    Amazing that this double tiered aqueduct is still standing after many centuries and the odd earthquake or 2. The road at right adds good lead in lines towards the distance. Good sharpness and color saturation. Excellent graphism and density levels. Tfs!

    Hello Serge,

    I was lucky enough to see this last year. The people add scale to this collosal Colosseum. Nice repetition of the arches and 4 horizontal tiers. A wonderful blue sky that contrasts well against the reddish brown stone. Tfs!

    Hello Mesut,

    Effective tight framing on the shoes with good sharpness, colour and saturation. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red, yellow and blue shoes. Good density levels that have given clean whites and blacks. The solitary spiralled light in the bg nicely breaks the repetitive pattern. Tfs!

    Hi Klaudio

    I know this area well. Good sharpness and the crowds add life and animate the scene. A superb pastel coloured sunset and the tram at left is often packed at peak hour! Good sharpness as proven by the text. The 2 mosques at left add interest. Tfs!

    I like the lighting contrasts here between the brightly lit fg and the shadowed bg. Good repetition of the roof tops and their receding overlapped pattern adds interest. Excellent sharpness and saturation. The spire makes a good focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Brian,

    These same purple flowers grow in eastern Australia but don't ask me what they are. Good layering in the composition here with vibrant colour and saturation and the usual impeccable sharpness. The red stones contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs!

    Excellent sharpness as evidenced by the pinpoint clarity of the text. The blue and cyan doorways and their elaborate entrances / porticoes contrasst superbly against the warmer honey colored stone surrounding them. Good perspective too. Tfs!

    Hello Asa,

    The old obelisk with the Maltese crosses makes a fine focal point then the secondary decorations like the lions and fountain grab interest. Good sharpness, color and saturation. The red roofs contrast nicely against the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Dimitris,

    The golden red illumination on the castle walls contrasts superbly against the blue hour sky. Good sharpness and the fireworks completes the scene and adds a focal point in the comparatively empty sky. Good shadow detail in the forested fg. Tfs!

    Hi Ana,

    I love the composition here of the green red and yellow doors in the derelict tavern. Excellent sharpness, diffused light with good textural details, and the overlap of fg at right and bg at left separated by the partly collapsed wall is great. Tfs!

    Hi Maria

    Argentina did well. Within striking distance of first place next time! Good sharpness and aI like the wide angled panoramic crop. The blue uniforms contrast well against the yellow green grass in the bg. Good to have 1 boy at right breaking the repetitive pattern. Tfs!

    Ola Ana,

    A superb upward pov and good sharpness and diffused light. I like the intricate ornate stonework carvings. Good contrast between the red and gold colors. Excellent management of perspective. The converging lines in the roof lead to a good focal point. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    Looks even more like a film set than the other. Incredible roll cloud at right of the mysterious island with the steep cliffs both sides. I like the glint of sunlight on the water. Fantastic colour, sharpness & saturation. Tfs!

    The brownish red earth in the fg contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the repetition of the alternating horizontal bands in the mid distance and their changing colours adds interest. Good light contrasts and colour. Tfs!

    Hello Miguel,

    Looks vaguely ancient Greek in style. Good management of perspective with the verticals centrally placed. Excellent sharpness and superb framing and shadow detail. I might have increased contrast a little. Excellent textural detail in the peeling paint. Tfs!
