    Hello, Gert,

    Good graphism of the woman at left in full sunlight standing against the dark bg of the door. Excellent sharpness and the window at right resembling the same shape and color of the door balances the composition. Excellent sharpness and the tan colors contrast well against the grey-blue tones. Tfs.

    Hi Noel

    The strong backlight has been well managed with still plenty of colour, which seems to often be a first casualty when shooting into the sun. The graphic elements between the lighter toned blue sky and the dark bare silhouetted branches of the tree are superb. Excellent sharpness and framing. Tfs.

    Bonjour, cher ami Lars,
    C'est beau et inquiétant à la fois ces immeubles de grande hauteur, j'ai l'impression que le soleil n'atteint pas certaines rues de la ville.
    En tout cas, la photographie est une véritable réussite.
    Bravo !
    Très bonne journée.
    Amitiés.

    Bonjour, cher ami Serge,
    Cette grosse t^te clown dans les airs ne manque pas de drôlerie et doit amuser les enfants (les grands aussi, dois-je dire !).
    Image bien cadrée aux couleurs éclatantes.
    Très bonne journée.

    Hi Luciano

    I recognize the bg cathedral which is perhaps THE icon of Helsinki. This shot reminds me that I haven't yet uploaded the red church down near the Viking Boat pier. I recognize the Ferris wheel too. Good sharpness and the enormous ship at right reminds me of a similar one I saw in Alesund in Norway. Tfs.

    Bonjour, cher Pierre,
    La collection d'Eglises du Canada prend des dimensions étonnantes.
    Cet édifice de 1950 était déjà très contemporain et surtout très moderne pour son époque.
    Très bonne journée.

    Nice to see your local neighborhood. Good sharpness and a superb high pov as you say. Good colour and sharpness and its looks to be a peaceful and prosperous area. The area of trees adds a nice green breathing space. Tfs.

    Hello Burak

    Wonderful reflections in the tranquil water and the lush greenery of the grass and obvious high rainfall and lack of strong sunlight are self-evident. Good sharpness and the red house at left and white house at right counterbalance each other. I like the soft, diffused light. Tfs.

    A stranded decaying subject that has seen better days and now sadly forgotten that has an haunted feel to it. Excellent photo documenting its demise, good colour & detail with excellent focus. Well done, Congrats

    Hi Cristina
    This is well spotted opportunity and lovely quick snap, kids are always attractive subjects to capture such a very natural image with that eye connection - the strength of this shot. The adorable and no words needed! Great shot, tfs.

    Hi Maurizio
    What a rugged coastal scape depicting the grand scale, i love how the eye popping turquoise water easily grabs our attention as strong colour booster. I think the weather was perfect and couldn't have been any better. Great lens work is admired, Very well done shot. TFS

    Hello Philippe!

    Good sharpness with excellent repetition of the fragrance water bottles. Effective tight framing with no part of the frame wasted. I like the angled pov showing 2 planes in this corner. Nice wood texture patterns in the bottom right. Tfs.

    Hi Klaudio

    Good sharpness and the red and blue colors within the painting set up a good warm cold color contrast. Lol at the no photos remark! Excellent inclusion of the 2 people viewing the artwork. The symmetry and mirroring of their attire with that of the painting is great. Tfs.

    Hi Paul,

    It looks like a photo-montage from Facebook! Wonderful reflections in the shiny glass window with good color and sharpness. Good repetition of the geometric patterns formed my the multiple squares and rectangles. I like the distortion too. Tfs.

    So it's not just Holland and Greece that have windmills, as evidenced here! France also has them. Effective tight framing with no part of the image wasted and good breathing space right around. Excellent sharpness with soft pastel colors. Tfs.

    Hi John
    A lively town scene by the canal certainly worth for few shots, packed with bright light and shadows while the eye popping boat makes a great impact drawing the eyes
    lined by some bright colours. Full of interest urban shot enhanced by peoples' present. Congrats

    An eye popping shot here, and there's always something special about shooting people in action at peak of the physical sport. The mix reaction of fun & misery, determination etched across the faces and the movement are indeed strong elements in making this shot work. The precise timing coupled by the bright beautiful colours sums up what sport is all about, Well done. Congrats
