    Hello Malgorzata,

    Love this. I have been to nearby Bangkok a few times and MaeHong Son, but Yangon (Rangoon) is still on my to-do list. With the relaxing of the grip on power by the military now is a good time to go. Nice use of the fg overarching building to frame the bg. Tfs.

    Hello Jean,

    Smart choice of a vertical frame to accentuate the height with good sharpness and the white sky enhances the graphic element of the darker toned stone castle. I like the patch of greenery at the bottom, and the 2 people add scale. Tfs.

    Hello Eleu

    Maybe in an open air zoo in the backyard on acreage but not in the house. Wild animals are unpredictable. The leopard is a beautiful and magnificent animal for sure. I went and saw the snow leopards in India. Tfs.

    Witaj Maciej,

    I know this bus station. It was my first introduction to Lisbon coming from Madrid. Here I like the wide angled fish eye distortion. The people animate the scene and provide scale. The yellow illumination contrasts well with the blue tones. Tfs.

    Bonjour Pierre,

    Looks similar to the Melbourne waterfront in Australia. Excellent sharpness and the green and red ship makes an immediate focal point against the largely grey surroundings. Perhaps a slight rotation to the left so the water line is level? Tfs.

    A good study in contrasting textures between the rusty corroded hook and the spaghetti-like strands of the fishing net. Effective tight framing with good sharpness. The diagonal axis adds dynamism. Tfs.

    So nice to see a new upload from you. A superb high pov with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The fg grasses add depth and framing. The turquoise water looks ideal for a swim. Tfs.

    Hello, Gert,

    Good graphism of the woman at left in full sunlight standing against the dark bg of the door. Excellent sharpness and the window at right resembling the same shape and color of the door balances the composition. Excellent sharpness and the tan colors contrast well against the grey-blue tones. Tfs.

    Hi Noel

    The strong backlight has been well managed with still plenty of colour, which seems to often be a first casualty when shooting into the sun. The graphic elements between the lighter toned blue sky and the dark bare silhouetted branches of the tree are superb. Excellent sharpness and framing. Tfs.

    Hi Luciano

    I recognize the bg cathedral which is perhaps THE icon of Helsinki. This shot reminds me that I haven't yet uploaded the red church down near the Viking Boat pier. I recognize the Ferris wheel too. Good sharpness and the enormous ship at right reminds me of a similar one I saw in Alesund in Norway. Tfs.

    Nice to see your local neighborhood. Good sharpness and a superb high pov as you say. Good colour and sharpness and its looks to be a peaceful and prosperous area. The area of trees adds a nice green breathing space. Tfs.

    Hello Burak

    Wonderful reflections in the tranquil water and the lush greenery of the grass and obvious high rainfall and lack of strong sunlight are self-evident. Good sharpness and the red house at left and white house at right counterbalance each other. I like the soft, diffused light. Tfs.

    Good sharpness with excellent repetition of the fragrance water bottles. Effective tight framing with no part of the frame wasted. I like the angled pov showing 2 planes in this corner. Nice wood texture patterns in the bottom right. Tfs.

    Hi Klaudio

    Good sharpness and the red and blue colors within the painting set up a good warm cold color contrast. Lol at the no photos remark! Excellent inclusion of the 2 people viewing the artwork. The symmetry and mirroring of their attire with that of the painting is great. Tfs.

    It looks like a photo-montage from Facebook! Wonderful reflections in the shiny glass window with good color and sharpness. Good repetition of the geometric patterns formed my the multiple squares and rectangles. I like the distortion too. Tfs.

    So it's not just Holland and Greece that have windmills, as evidenced here! France also has them. Effective tight framing with no part of the image wasted and good breathing space right around. Excellent sharpness with soft pastel colors. Tfs.

    Bonjour Denis,

    I like the dappled light and shadow play on the facades of the half-timbered duo of houses. Good sharpness and density levels with excellent color and saturation. The orange, yellow and red tones contrast well against the blue sky to give a wonderful warm cold color contrast. Tfs.

    Bonjour, cher Nicolas,

    Fabulous warm cold color contrasts between the golden skies and navy blue shadows of the dark peaks generating their own micro-climates. The mist adds mood and atmosphere. Good sharpness and density levels with nice aerial perspective in the peaks of recedingly lighter tones from the fg. Tfs.

    A dramatic, contorted sky with good sharpness and a marvellous sunrise. The yellow-walled fort adds a superb focal point. Nice reflections in the river at right. A superb high vantage point too. Tfs.
