    Hello Nicolas,

    Wonderful arm cold color contrasts between the yellow orange moon and the blue-hued mountains, with a strong, simple minimalist composition. Good sharpness and superb shadow detail. The fg tree adds depth and layering and a fine graphic element. Tfs.

    Hello Gert,

    They have a few of these in Hodonin / Holic / Skalica area too. The chefs are Vietnamese and prepare a fusion cuisine of Czech and Slovak food mixed in with Vietnamese fare. It's cheap, tasty and nutritious. Only 60 kurunas or about 2 euro. I think Chinese would use 'Huang' rather than 'Hoang'. In English, 'yellow'. The couple contemplating a meal animate the colorful scene. Tfs.

    Lovely reflections with the dark tree at left adding a fantastic graphic element against the lighter toned sky. Well framed and composed with excellent reflections in the fg water of the tranquil lake. Natural looking color with superb sharpness. Tfs.

    Hello, Pierre,

    The tan roof of the old car contrasts well against the white body. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused soft light. Excellent framing and composition using a diagonal pov to add dynamism. Good graphic elements too. Tfs.

    Hello Gert,

    A town on my to do list. 1955 is older than me! This clock looks less crowded than the one in Prague too. Good sharpness, saturation and colour. The waving men animate the scene and add life. A pleasant diffused light and well framed and composed. Tfs.

    Hello Bev,

    I recall another Warkworth south of Auckland in New Zealand. But this one is equally impressive too. Nice repetition of the colourful pennant flags with excellent sharpness and the mediaeval atmosphere has been well captured with the archers. The ruined castle makes an interesting backdrop. Tfs.

    The Sacred Heart Cathedral is impressive and the tourist crowds add scale to its size and height. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The double terraces add layering and depth and I like the upward pov. Tfs.

    Hello Daniel,

    The dual diagonal trolly tram tracks add deep lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Good sharpness and the red tram is well positioned near the vanishing point. The washing hanging out to dry from the balconies at left adds a nice daily life touch to the scene. Tfs.

    Hi Malgo,

    The wall shows good texture and the missing statues all bar 2 add interest. The white furred scots terrier at right has spotted you and the 3 seated people add scale and animate the scene. The diagonal stone bench right across the frame adds dynamism. A charming spot to rest for a few moments. Tfs.

    Hello Paja,

    I like the aerial perspective of the hills and their receding tones from dark at the front to lighter at the back. A superb sunset with good sharpness and saturation. The reflection of the sunset off the fg roof adds a lot to this image. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue and orange in the bg skies. Tfs.

    Some interesting street art on the wall at left with the three flame headed people in blue & yellow giving a superb warm cold color contrast. The street adds deep lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. The Greek flag adds place & context. Tfs.

    Hi Burak,

    You were lucky as a lot of the scaffolding that was there in 2013 has now been removed. I like the angled upward pov and the warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and yellow red columns. Good repetition of the columns too. They are in the older, Doric style of square tops. Tfs.

    I also have some shots from Bergen I have been meaning to upload. A fine upward pov here with good sharpness and well managed perspective placing the vertical lines centrally. The warm sunlit facade of the building in reddish yellow, contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Bonjour Serge,

    Surprising to see that such a little known city has such a big central business district with a forest of highrise buildings. Good sharpness and superb reflections. The yacht at right makes a good focal point and its rust red color contrasts well against the blue sky and water. Tfs.

    Nice repetition of the chairs and the main path with its dual converging lines either side provides strong lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective towards the back. Excellent sharpness and a soft diffused light. I like the reflection at the back in the shiny floor. Tfs.

    I like the downward curve of the brick wall at left, and its shadowed outline provides a good graphic element against the brightly lit bg. Good sharpness and excellent saturation. The sea of red rooftops contrast well against the blue sky. A good exposure on the white highlights of the clouds. Tfs.

    The singular strong vertical of the central high rise building under construction contrasts well against the predominant horizontal lines. Good sharpness. I might have blurred the pixellated sky and reduced saturation a little. I like the expansive high pov. Tfs.

    Salut Jean,

    Well framed and composed with the horizon line well placed away from the centre. The fg grasses add depth and layering and the red roof of the house at right contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Nice reflections in the water and the big fishing boat at left counterbalances the house at right. Tfs.
