    Hi Jorge
    A lovely winter sunny image and still plenty of green on both side to cheer up, shrouded by brill blue sky. Has a cold feel about it though, and I love the diminishing line on the horizon just to illustrate the size of the farmland, but interesting too how the lone papaya tree seems to be reaching the sky! Excellent infor pic blessed by superb colour contrast, Congrats

    Hi Noel
    Captivating view with red streaks across the morning blue sky and the distant light is just perfect. It is the lines and color against the silhouettes that make this image sing! An excellent shot with good balance between colour tones & contrast surely large view reveals how good this picture is. Great too, that you have successfully retained some highlights of the foreground and i know that under this circumstances, to achieve a pleasant exposure can be so so tricky.
    Excellent, Congrats

    Whoa-ho, into the deep inside ......

    Now that's one gorgeous macro photography, Klaudio and I really love how you've positioned it and composed this. Ultra sharp focus where it counts is the key to this that has a subtle softness in the petals in its prime. It's utterly fabulous floral shot gives it a real translucent feel...
    Stunning, My compliments

    PS: Macro is strenuous on my eyes due to narrow depth of field and not an easy task I know that - which I gave up few years back- and the second enemy is movements due to wind blowing. Initially I thought that you must have used an extension tube attachment till i read your notes and here I only guess that your magnification ratio is 1:1 or 1:2 which is not an easy task to achieve really, hats off!

    Thks to your very useful write-up.

    Hi Sergio
    A wonderful indoor architectural piece with great feel of depth, harmonious colors and clarity is superb. I love the fact that I can see every part of it, there's no dark corners where my eyes are straining, trying to see what lies within. What else can we do but admire such skill, supported by good accompanying notes. Spectacular! well photographed. Congrats

    Hi Pierre
    The two figs really caught my eye as if inviting us to savour this winterwonderland which works superbly in monochrome. Now that is what real winter is all about with its lovely tone that looks like a fine pencil sketch - a perfect antidote to our busy cluttered lives. How different this would look in summer....

    Excellent vision and result!

    Hi Iain
    A glorious full frame image, how gathering of patterns and colours are really appealing to the human eye and this is certainly no exception. A brill display of colour - riot of colour precisely, presented before a sharp shooter. Blend of human element is so vital here, else the pic is meaningless....

    Delightful to view, Congrats

    Hi Murat
    At glance the golden tones is a clear winning factor accentuating the strong shapes of the roller coaster dominating the frame. It makes for an interesting image, stuffed with eye-catching colour with some other complementary features. Your blanced exposure is exquisite. Excellent snap, Congrats.

    Hi Danie
    Great approach how to show the city skyline in an inviting & absorbing way. You have perfectly placed the imposing edifices as an extremely strong point to hook the eye. Wonderful shadow play, rich colour tone under that brill low angled sunlight supported by bags of sumptuous detail throughout. What a gorgeous sky to finish off and your shot does justice to the grandeur and majesty of the palace. A remarkable capture and thks for sharing, my compliments.

    Hi Gyorgy
    One of the best things about photography is pictures like this. A split-second of time that captures a specific moment, just look at their excitement is beaming across it as he is about to get splattered to every single freezing tingle. All that from a split-second, great fun and nice candid nature to the shot! Congrats

    The facades are beautiful with a mixture of timber architectural styles and the light really displays the charms of these building to the fullest. Fabulous array of colours that you managed to get most of it in really displays the uniqueness of this graceful sight. Wonderful detailed image, Congrats.

    Very interesting close-up image caught in the sun amongst the dappled shades. This has a real sense of drama, with the contrasts between white, green, yellow and dark blurry bg, coupled by your splendid sharp focusing and detail of the seedhead. The catch light on the stamens really makes lot of diff and these values are the best contributing factors for me, and it goes well with such a striking flower.

    Amazing what one sees and what others miss out.....
    An eye catching nature beauty - one of your nicest macro shots todate, Congrats.

    Hi Pavle
    Interesting - looks busy junkyard and it makes you wonder as they are camouflaged by white snow, this just works so well in 'black and white setting. But lovely how the beautiful tree actually forces the eye to stop by and have a look what's behind the gate. Well done shot of a real situation, Congrats
