    Hi Jean,

    For a moment I thought the blue and white colors of Greece were some part of a ceremony for the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio. I just finished critiquing Danos's shot of the handover ceremony. It's the same all over Europe. Fountains shut down in November and reopen in late April / early May, as it is too expensive to heat the water to stop it freezing. The same story with outdoor pools. Tfs!

    Another fine shot of the handover ceremony. I like the high pov and superb sharpness. The 2 national flags of Greece and Brazil are prominent focal points. Tfs!

    Hi Paul

    The people at left add scale and give an idea of the height of the Roman ruins. The pigeons perched on the wall add secondary reference points. Nice repetition of the columns. Tfs!

    Hi Luis

    The design on the roof reminds me of Stephansplatz in Vienna or some of the rooftops in Sibui, Romania. Spot on metering with ideal saturation and warm cold color contrasts. Tfs!

    Hello Ali.

    The density levels are near perfect here with clean whites and solid blacks. Not easy to do with so much white in the screen to confuse meters. Good sharpness and graphism with minimalist colour. Tfs!

    Hi Pavle,

    A nice macro closeup of the bumblebee amongst the purple lilac or wisteria flowers. The barbed wire subtly emulates the sting in the tail of the bee. I like the shallow dof and tight framing. Good sharpness on key subject parts. Tfs!

    The golden sands of the beach at low tide contrast nicely with the blue sky above to give a superb warm vs cold colour contrast. Good sharpness and superb reflections in the still tidal pools. The person adds scale. Tfs!

    A moody and atmospheric shot thanks to the fog. The 2 silhouetted men, the tree and the sun are the only noteworthy elements in this superb minimalist shot. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge

    It looks like Rhodes or Hvar in Croatia. Good sharpness with nice inclusion of the fg harbour to add depth. The boats provide repetition enhancing the composition. The rust red colors of the fort contrast well with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Philippe,

    A pleasant country road with good sharpness and a nice minimalist composition. The dual sides of the curving road converging towards the back add superb linear perspective and lead in lines. Tfs!

    The outside area looks like a pleasant spot to grab a coffee or snack after visiting the fur interpretation center. Or waiting for friends to exit. The red trim contrasts well with the blue sky. Excellent sharpness too. Tfs!

    Hello Ike

    Good sharpness and I like the soft, pastel colors. The bg tower makes a fine focal point. The Italian flag in the fg adds place and context. Nice repetition of the lamps. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo,

    A stunning Cuban sunset with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The old cars in the street add place and context. A nice silhouette of the lone palm tree and the clocktower beside it makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo,

    This looks more north African in style than Cuban, but I guess the Spanish and French were in North Africa so that would explain the similarity. The blue and white colors remind me of Wedgwood bone china. Tfs!
