    Hallo Rob,

    I like the distorted reflections in the shiny pillar at left. Good sharpness and some further fantastic reflections in the ceiling. The blue at the top sets up a warm cold color contrasts with the warmer yellow green tones. Tfs!

    Bonjour, mon ami Lars,

    The warm colors of the tower contrast well with the blue sky to give a superb warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and nice fg reflections in the water. Tfs!

    Hello Nicolas,

    An unusual wine barrel house that reminds me of the old lady who lived in a shoe nursery rhyme. The fg yellow green grass contrasts well with the blue shadows and sky. Good sharpness and tight framing. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    It's nice to see these flowering jacaranda trees, a native of South America, flowering here too. There also do well in east coast Australia and flower in October rather than April. Good sharpness and color. Tfs!

    Bonjour Jean,

    The lighthouse makes an obvious focal point. The concrete causeway provides diminishing linear perspective and strong lead in lines converging towards the back. Tfs!

    NYC is famous for some of its quirky street performers and this one is just as offbeat an entertaining and amusing in his own way. Good sharpness and nice to catch some spectators at left. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    These scale models remind me of similar ones in Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. They are difficult to photograph with their shiny reflections and people almost always milling around them. Good result here. Tfs!

    Hi Craig

    People in many countries that live, work and were born & grew up there often fail to see the beauty that surrounds them and usually see their towns as boring and lacking culture. But that simply isn't true. Folks become blase and don't appreciate what they have. Nearly every city has at least something to see. That's demonstrated amply here. Tfs!

    Hello, Malgo!

    Lately there has been a trend for less sugar and more cocoa in chocolate with a dark variety of up to 70% rather than the usual 30% in milk chocolate. Nice to see where the cocoa comes from. Tfs!

    The fg street adds deep converging lines and perspective towards the back. Good sharpness & the bg tower and the pruned trees add interest. Tfs!

    Hi Piotr

    You might have to give me some tips on high altitude photography. You consistently get great results. The fg trees and the distant forest below add depth and layering to the composition. Tfs!

    The pink Paeonia flowers contrast well against the blue sky, & I like their repetition in the fg. Good sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

    Hi Serghei,

    London is even further away from Australia than Moscow, and its a city I've always wanted to see. It was high on my bucket list in my first trip around Europe in 2013. The iconic Elizabeth Tower and Big Ben are instantly recognizable landmarks. Tfs!

    Hello Gyorgy,

    I have to agree with you, the photograph is far stronger, with a greater sense of 'mood' without the lady in shot. You did an exceptionally good job of removing her whilst keeping the integrity of the rest of the photograph.
    The suitcase next to the man brings up a great sense of a story. There are numerous scenarios, from the mysterious to the romantic! It would make an intriguing front cover for a book!!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Jean,

    Lighthouses always make strong, imposing focal points and this one is no exception; in fact, its warm colouration and sea reflection add to its overall impact.
    You have used the causeway to very good effect, completing an excellent composition.

    My warm regards,

    Ciao caro Silvio,

    Your slow shutter speed has captured every bit of artificial light and illuminated the scene in such a way that it is like molten lava! It is incredibly beautiful!.
    There is enough light to show the bridge, which guides irresistibly between the amber trees and into the heart of the illuminated village.
    The deep blue sky reveals the mountain and adds atmosphere to the scene.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Ali,

    Thank you for the instruction, I'm sure many will be attempting this type of shot with such clear guidance!

    It is a shot that is wonderfully clear and reveals what we imagine we see with a naked eye, though it cannot be anything like as good as this!
    I like how the reactionary, small droplets are exploding from the large droplet crater. It's a great shot.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Rob,

    There have been numerous posts of 'eyes' but this is a little different from most that we have seen; in your case, you have focused on just three pods. By doing this, you have chosen the best number for composition and placed them in such a way that they suggest a diagonal (though curved!).
    I like the inclusion of the framework, with its overlapping lines, creating a network of straight-sided shapes, so different from the open space in the opposing corner.

    London can be such a tease, weatherwise!!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
