    Salut Pierre

    Fantastic warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue colors within the stained glass window, accentuated by the caramel hues in the fg. Good sharpness and saturation. I might have vertically cropped some of the dark space at right. Tfs.

    Hi John

    I think it might be a kid, or baby goat. The Rastafarian blond hairdo of the woman is eyecatching. Good sharpness and excellent use of a shallow dof. Superb shadow detail on her face despite the lack of light apart from her nose. The dark deeply shadowed bg makes a fine contrasting graphic element with the sunlit fg. Tfs.

    Hello Maciej,

    The lighting is just perfect here and reveals every textural nuance in the walls. Good sharpness and fantastic warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and the red roofs and yellow and pink facades of the buildings. The people at left animate the scene. Tfs.

    Bonjour Jean-Jacques

    The mirrors give this image a kaleidoscopic effect and add an element of repetition. Good sharpness and wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue. The 2 globes resemble giant pearls. Tfs.

    Hello Craig,

    Looks like a larger version of Pashuputinath in Kathmandu. I passed, when the restaurant downstream offered fresh duck that could be seen swimming in the river adjacent! The red and blue colours contrast strongly here. The people and the cow animate the scene. Tfs.

    Hello Eleu,

    Good density levels with excellent repetition of the grave stones and good sharpness and light contrasts. Superb saturation and the dark green tree against the lighter toned sky adds a fine graphic element. The US flag makes a good focal point. Tfs.

    The red poppies set up a wonderful warm cold colour contrast against the bg blue sky. Good sharpness and the ploughed and contoured fields at right add strong lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Tfs.

    Bonjour Serge,

    Missed this one. It's actually in Vatican City so if you want to, you can add another country to your gallery map, & it's easy to edit the location. But the train from Rome goes right into the city within a city and there is no clearly defined border. Good sharpness and the distinctive dome of St Peter's makes an instant focal point. Tfs.

    Fantastic symmetrical reflections in the mirror like surface of the water with good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. Well framed and composed. The breathing space at each end of the island enhances the shot and the mountains make a fine backdrop. Tfs.

    This genre of stained glass window photography can be difficult to correctly expose but you've succeeded admirably here. Good color and saturation with excellent sharpness. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue. Tfs.

    Europe is most certainly a genuine treasure trove for impressive religious art and here is yet another superb example, this time in Hungary. A fine upward pov with good sharpness and natural looking colour. The diffused light works well here. Tfs.

    Witaj Malgo,

    This looks like a Silvio shot! Good placement of the picturesque village on the central horizon and its warm reddish brown color of the buildings contrasts well against the blue sky. I like the contrast between the flat fg with the ripening wheat and the hilly bg. The grove of uniformly spaced olive trees adds interest. Tfs.

    Hi Burak,

    I miss Istiqlal Street. I used to go there frequently. The Shake Shack in Beyoglu was a favourite hangout. Good inclusion of the tourist tram and excellent sharpness and tight framing. The shallow dof works well here and the yellow contrasts well against the cooler grey blue hues. Tfs.

    Hello Burak!

    I was there in 2008. Its an innovative piece of architecture for sure and was ahead of its time. Nowadays there are equally impressive and bigger bridges in Turkey but this one still captures peoples imagination. Good close up emphasising the textural details and warm cold color contrast between the orange red and blue sky. Tfs.
