    Hi Ryszard,

    I like the stark contrast between the 2 well cared for dwellings in the fg and the derelict abandoned bg building. Even the bright red roofs contrast strongly against the drab grey brown tones. Tfs!

    Bonjour, Nicolas

    I like the orange sunset tint in the sky and the distant layer of mist on the horizon. The fg rows of trellised vines add depth, layering and perspective to the composition. Tfs!

    Hello Sam,

    When I was there in 2001 a woman in the sampan like the one seen here demanded $5 US for taking her photo even though it was a wide angled view like this. I declined. Good sharpness and shadow detail. Tfs!

    Hi Ike

    There is also an Arthur's Seat in Victoria Australia, probably named after or by Scottish immigrants. Nice overview of the town with the rugged hill in the distance. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Hi Gert.

    The 3 blue highrise buildings look like three abstract penguins having a back to back Mexican standoff! Its certainly refreshing to see some innovative architectural designs straying far from the stacked rectangular boxes of the last century. Tfs

    A good upward pov on the fountain and excellent sharpness and framing. The bg crowds of people add scale and animate the scene. The strong backlight has been well managed. Tfs!

    Hi Murat

    Heard from an expat friend that a lot of the language schools in Turkey are closing because no-one has any money thanks to the rigorous hawk-like Erdogan. He really is killing the goose that laid the golden eggs. Anyway enough of that. I like the angled pov and the the brick building contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs!

    This looks more like somewhere in Italy than the north of England! The outdoor fruit market adds a colorful focal point. Good sharpness and the tall column is hard to miss. Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    I like the lichen encrusted stone balustrades and the leafy fg garden. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The purple flowers at right add a welcome splash of color. The barred windows suggest theft or vandalism was a problem? Tfs!

    Good sharpness and a reasonable tonal range. The bearded old man resting on the pillar makes perfect focal point. Good sharpness and nice graphism of the dark suited gent against the lighter toned background. Tfs!

    Hi Brenda

    Effective tight framing with good control over perspective & lens barrel distortion. The dark lamp post neatly bisects the image and the green tree softens the harsh man-made environment. Tfs!
