    Hello Wolfgang,

    As I recall much of Austria is close to northern Italy. Lovely aerial perspective of receding tones here with the fg layers dark and gradating to light towards the back. Nice repetition of the mountain ranges. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Hi Miguel,

    Effective tight framing and a surprise on opening to find this is not one of those direction signs with distances to Paris, Rome, New York, Cairo etc. It looks like competition for rooms in Pokhara is fierce! I might have used fill in flash to temper the strong backlight. Tfs!

    Ciao Luciano,

    My kind of beach. No highrise, crowds or rows and rows of deckchairs and umbrellas for hire! The grove at coconut palms at left add a suitable tropical look and feel and suggest warmth or heat. Good sharpness and the reddish yellow sand contrasts well against the blue sea and sky. Tfs!

    Hello Miguel,

    A colorful array of pastries and cakes that look delicious! Excellent color sharpness and confectionery! The prices look reasonable at least compared with tourist haunts in Vienna. The diagonal axis of the counter adds dynamism. The shopkeeper looks ready for business! Tfs!

    Bonjour, Ourania

    The warm honey colored yellow wall and pink bougainvillea and oleander flowers contrast well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the curved lane provides ideal lead in lines and perspective. The parked bike makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Didi,

    I like the multiple arched bridge on the horizon. Nice reflections in the river and the hilltop fort or castle makes a fine focal point. Subtle warm cold color contrasts between the patches of blue sky and the yellow green vegetation. Tfs!

    Hi Ike

    Are they cctv cameras mounted in the crevice at right? I like the minimalist color and superb sharpness, as well as the wonderful tonal range and variety of textures. A good exposure on the bright highlights at right seeping in from outside the cave. Tfs!

    Hi Brian!

    I know this spot a short walk from Lindos on Rhodes and had a swim in the bay as well as walked to the cliff overlooking the monastery depicted here. Good sharpness and color. Looks like you were fighting against the strong backlight here. I like the 2 small boats in St Pauls Bay. Tfs!

    Hello Ihsan

    I know this spot. I took a similar shot last September. Lovely symmetrical reflections in the water with good color, saturation and sharpness. Amazing repetition of the wooden pylons. I like the alternating colors of the facades. Tfs!

    Salut Nicolas,

    The orange streak in the sunset skies at right contrasts superbly against the grey blue portions of the sky at left. Beautiful snow-capped peaks which make a majestic backdrop. Superb shadow detail despite the back-light. Nice simple aerial perspective too with just 2 layers. Tfs!

    A good decisive moment shot catching the fleeting moment where the water is splashed by the boy frolicking on the beach. Nice reflections in the wet sand with superb sharpness and color saturation. I like the clarity of the water and the reflections off it. Tfs!

    Hello Sasha,

    They look delicious. Can I have them all? I like the negative like table cloth which echoes the cherry pattern in reverse with white circles on a red bg. Good light reflections off the shiny cherries. The neutral grey wall makes a fine bg. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    The yellow is certainly eye-catching and contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the diagonal roads provides both dynamism and strong lead in lines and perspective. The red bg skyscraper enhances the effect. Tfs!

    Another image where there is a subtle warm cold color contrasts btween the pale red seaweed or grass dried on the shore and the blue grey sky and water. Good sharpness and the town at right adds a reference point and centre of interest. Tfs!

    Hello Nevyan

    I like how the rectangular hole in the building frames the view of another building across the street. Punchy light contrasts with great colour, saturation and sharpness. Nice reflections in the fg window of the skyscraper. Excellent repetition of geometric patterns and shapes. Tfs!

    Hello Neyvan

    The art decco or is it rococo style is certainly eyecatching. A nice warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and pale yellow hued building. The palm trees add a welcome splash of green. The building vaguely resembles a lighthouse. Tfs!

    Hi Ana

    I like the pine cone and conifer branches at left illuminated by the lamp. Excellent textural details with good sharpness considering this is a nocturnal shot. I like the arched cover over the lamp. The yellow light contrasts well against the blue grey shadows. Tfs!

    Ciao Carlo,

    And some good memories from this lookout over the old market square for me too! The people look like ants from this high up. Good sharpness and realistic colour perfectly saturated. I like the subtle pastel sunset colors on the horizon. Tfs!
