    Hi Jean
    That ancient edifice grabs the eye so strongly from the thumbnail! but what a jaw-dropping contrast it turns out to an idyllic greenery of the setting. It's very well detailed, crisp throughout with a good composition and lovely saturation. Great effort on your part to get a real cool shot like this. Congrats

    Hi Ally
    You are wise with the framing by having more of the foreground interest leading the eye to the watch tower and lovely how the wavy line makes a great link to keep the eye into the perspective. Great compo, rich in colors and detail aplenty. Grand piece of ancient edifices adequately capture with excellent result.. Congrats

    Interesting write up with these identical small 'eyes' i think essentially high up so the wealthy people could easily observe the happenings below while unseen from the outside. Lovely olde worlde, a well spotted shooting chance there with good slim orientation creating an intriguing graphical quality. Lovely catch, Congrats. TFS

    An extremely colourful harbour scene with the huge ferry boat attracts as supporting interest while focus is still of the imposing Statue. Lovely juxtaposition, brightness is manageable and above all vividness of detail and colours works superbly. Excellent capture, Congrats

    Hi Krzysztof
    I love colour saturation and contrast, abandoned yet there's still beauty in it - could conjure up a thousand stories with loads of appeal. Detail and the intense deep colours are just marvellous, you've conveyed the feeling of desolation and beauty that never ceases to fascinate a keen sharp shooter. Congrats and tfs

    Hi Nicolas
    A well spotted opportunity with this great compo perfectly placed at the third on that chimney while inviting us to explore the whole depth of the scene. This is so scenic and peaceful filled by some luxury of colors in the setting all merging together handsomely with speck of bright catchy colours adding the extra punchy effect. Delightful shot
    Well done.

    Hi Gyorgy
    This really is a wonderful calming image and the exposure effect really suits the gentle sweet pastel hues of the sky while the fg lines up creating interest and depth leading the eye to centre of the town scene. Your attention to detail shines through and this is well worth the rare evening venture of a real beauty filled with sense of peace. Delightful and quality as usual, Congrats

    Hi Gert
    That looks like a fun street party and colours are bang on here as this also reminds me of commonly seen street performers. The subject is always there and it's up to us to observe and be quick on the draw - the knack for making unexpected discoveries and well done on exploiting the opportunity one of those fun shots that keep us looking & looking....
    Well done

    Hi Philippe
    A calm scene when early low warm light picking out detail of the river scape with the evaporating mist seems to unify whole the picture beautifully. A shot with sense of tranquility with excellent break in colours nicely taken and rewards to the early risers!! Congrats

    Hi Danos
    As seen from above where you've spotted the opportunity and that's the art of photography!

    The interplay of light and shadows - lots of shadows and the immaculate detail on the ground are just amazing and great how the contrasting blue colour helps to settle and hook the eye from escaping away. It's an extremely eye pulling shot for me looking close to appreciate, wonderfully managed exposure, lovely colour saturation and also the way this looks so subtle with striking contrast that you dont need people to make it work. Hats off to you, Congrats, TFS.

    Hi Mariusz
    Some exquisite indoor work here full of religious ambience when every inch offers so much detail to savour and positively clean and neat depicting a great architectural feature. As far as lighting is concerned it has worked for you very well with the exposure is so pleasantly distributed under a challenging low light. Immense perspective and depth blended with rich colour, warmness and lovely how the prayers lend the extra liveliness. Very good on all points and winner all the way, great take my friend, My compliments.

    Hi Federico
    Lovely calimg flow of this shot and gem of the lake view appropriately blended into this pristine spectacle with more interesting features from end to end. The mirror reflections accentuate the strength, enhanced by subtle back lighting and quality colours and what a jaw-dropping contrast to brill blue sky to end with. Lovely the way you managed to stretch out more features in shadow areas without compromising the digital noise. A remarkable shot, fully agreed with your statement and let the image speak itselt to the viewers. Congrats

    Hi Ourania
    Light and shadows can play the most extraordinary games with the mind. This is how mundane subject is transformed into something artistically and amplifying the elements to such strong character to rest the focus so firmly. Really contrasty blue and evocative small world. Well done, Congrats

    Great narratives as usual making this shot more value as we get to enjoy the sumptuous detail of this unique designed castle. You have made the most of the situation despite the weather condition, in particular love the way how specks of green help to heighten the zing factor and contrast as a whole. A pleasing outcome and my pleasure to savour. Congrats.

    Another church classic architectural beauty and the glorious eye-catching design with the background blue certainly does make this stand out really well. It's competently composed in great clarity and rich colours and apart from that, yellow is indeed a fine colour addition adding the extra zing. Your observation & execution in making this shot is applauded, Well done, Congrats.
