    Hi Ray

    I think I have a shot in my gallery of this same rock. It reminds me of Cappadocia in central Turkey. The warm reddish brown colors contrast superbly against the blue sky. Excellent sharpness and framing. Tfs.

    Hello Klaudio,

    A new area of KL that most tourists do not know about. Thanks so much for sharing. The heat is almost palpable. Good late afternoon shot merging into a sunset. Nice sharpness with good color and saturation. You are more than welcome to post on TE a lot more often. I have to agree with you that a lot of the really inspiring photographers have deserted the site. Hope to see more of your shots real soon! Tfs.

    Hello Gert,

    A good downward pov shot from a superb high elevation. The lonely woman tourist enlivens the empty alleyway passage and provides scale and animates the scene. I like the minimalist color of mostly grey. Tfs.

    Bonjour Pierre,

    I might have cropped up to the shadow of the powerline so it starts in the bottom right corner. Good sharpness and plemnty of breathing space right around the quaint old wooden church. Tfs.

    Amazing repetition of the arches with a wonderful deep perspective and superb lead in l9ines. The slightly tatty appearance and weathered look adds charm and character. Good shadow detail and the ivy creeping across adds interest. Tfs.

    The fluted wineglass stem structures adorning the sides of the cathedral are very unusual. Good sharpness and angled pov. I like the warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and the burgundy red cathedral. Tfs.

    Hello Gerrit,

    The meandering path at left adds deep lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Good sharpness and nice reflections in the water at right. The repetition of the ducks or geese is amazing. I like the red a frame rooftops on the horizon. Tfs.

    Well composed using the rule oif thirds with a wonderful cyan colour of the sea. Excellent sharpness and the dark fg rocks add a strong graphic element. Their reddish tint provides a warm cold color contrast with the sea and sky. Tfs.

    Hello Malgo,

    I know of Dantes Inferno painting, but today in Mostar Bosnia & H, it's 38c in the shade. The warm colours of the building's facade contrast magnificently against the bg blue sky and the cyclist adds a human element as well as scale. The bg crane at left hints at changes to the skyline. Tfs.

    Hi Paul,

    The bright red torii gate contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and excellent textural details in the fg. Reminds me of the tessellated pavement in Tasmania:

    The periwinkles on the fg rocks are in sharp focus and let us know the area is tidal. Tfs.

    Hello Ourania,

    A nNice historic layering effect, with the 3 different eras, with excellent sharpness. The very front brings us back to the past as exemplified by the Acropolis which was my first visual contact. Good shadow detail in the bg cliff. The walk up was much easier than I expected. It zig zags up gently over on the left. Tfs

    The colourful fg petunias add a vibrant splash of purple pink and violet to the fg. Good sharpness and the angled wooden bridge adds dynamism and lead in lines and perspective. The jagged bare bg peaks make a fine backdrop. Tfs.

    Hi Noel

    I like the minimalist composition of just the silhouetted statue and the sky. Backlight has been well managed and the color scheme resembles a sepia print. I can still spot some faint brown and magenta around the sun's halo especially. Excellent sharpness and strong graphic elements. Tfs.
