    Hello Bulent

    A sublime sunset with fantastic silhouettes and effective tight framing on the man standing and paddling the kayak. The high placed horizon line is well positioned away from the center and the glorious sunset colors of yellow orange contrast well against the grey blue tones elsewhere in the image. Tfs.

    Hello Gert,

    A great daily life shot from Nepal with good symmetry between the 2 lion sculptures and the 2 people between them. I like the elaborate carving on the door frames. Good sharpness and excellent graphic elements. The walking stick in full sunlight against the deeply shadowed bg is one such example. Tfs.

    Hello Nicolas,

    Amazing repetition of the black birds in flight. Good sharpness and the birds add a fantastic graphic element against the lighter toned sky. The diagonal vineyard adds dynamism. Nice repetition of the supprt stakes in the vineyard. Tfs.

    Bonjour, Jean

    The blue skylight above contrasts well against the reddish tones of the mosaic tile floor below. Good sharpness throughout and the ornate patterns of stars and swirls in the tile fg add interest. The passageway provides strong lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. The people add scale. Tfs.

    Salut Claude,

    A superb downward pov with good sharpness and natural looking color. The curve of the embankment at the top adds dynamism to the shot. Impeccable sharpness and punchy light contrasts. Not quite the Riviera, but better than snow! Tfs.

    Hello Burak,

    A good decisive moment shot with the skateboarder caught mid air at right. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. I like the shallow dof largely focused on the fg. A nice warm cold color contrast between the blue sky sea, and pale yellow red sand. Tfs.

    Greetings Murat Bey,

    It looked similar to helicopters I have seen in footage of the Vietnam War so thanks for confirming this in your note. Good sharpness and the partly diffused light works well here. Excellent, realistic color and saturation. The slight tilt of the aircraft adds dynamism. Tfs.

    Hello Pierre,

    I like the soft pastel colors, the diffused light and the simple, minimalist architectural design of this functional church. Well framed and composed with adequate breathing space and good management of perspective, placing the verticals centrally. Tfs.

    Hello Eleu,

    A superb nocturnal shot from the Las Vegas Strip with impeccable sharpness and vibrant colour. Good repetition of the 'Riviera' text in different fonts. Nice repetition of the three blue stars in 4 different places throughout the screen. Maybe 4.6 places if you count the 2 big blue stars at far right! Tfs.

    Dag Lars,

    I like the inverted reflection of the windmill. You were really lucky to get such calm and still weather with hardly a ruffle or ripple on the water surface. Good sharpness and impeccable saturation and framing. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the yellow straw color of the reeds and the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hi Nicolas.

    Amazing repetition of the vertical wooden stakes and the young diagonal vine plants. Good sharpness and the rainbow at left in the irrigation spray is a superb addition. Effective tight framing and good density levels. Nice graphic elements with the sunlit fg contrasting against the shadowed bg hill slopes. Tfs.

    Hi Frank

    A superb b&w image with impeccable sharpness and good tonal range, with crisp clean whites and solid blacks. The composition and framing are excellent. I like the linear perspective formed by connecting the 2 x signs together and extrapolating them towards the cranes along the dock top left. Tfs.

    Hi Danos

    The red dinghy contrasts superbly against the deep blue sea and lighter toned sky, and the red roof at right also against both sea and sky. Good sharpness and the rocky shoreline interspersed with lots of greenery and trees is certainly very beautiful. Punchy light contrasts and the black tyres along the concrete pier add interest. Tfs.

    I was last in Sydney on July 1, 2012. A superb nocturnal shot and smart use of the aperture priority setting to gain a long time exposure giving a motion blurred, silky effect to the water and starbursts for the street lights. Good sharpness and vibrant colour with nice reflections. I like the smooth, colourful sky too. Tfs.
