    Hi Daniel

    Missed this one. Smart choice of a vertical frame with fantastic fg reflections and good sharpness and saturation. The pale honey yellow color of the bg buildings contrasts well against the blue sky. The fg fishing boats vaguely resemble Venetian gondolas. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre

    Good diffused light on a cloudy day and well framed and composed with plenty of breathing space right around the lighthouse. Good sharpness and the deserted picnic table adds a sad melancholic mood. The yellow flowers add a welcome splash of color. Tfs!

    Ciao Carlo

    I like the high pov and the candy red and white striped colour scheme. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The childrens playground makes a fine and appropriate backdrop. Well framed and composed. The grafitti on the fg shutter adds realism. Tfs!

    Hi Serghei

    I like the warm cold colour contrast between the blue sky and the yellow and red bee colors of the plane. Good sharpness and saturation. I like the addition of the much smaller biplane top right. The 4 propellor blades nicely divide the image into quadrants. Tfs!

    Salut Nicole

    It's hard not to take great photos in Venice. I took around 125 shots and almost every one of them was a winner. likewise here. Splendid color contrasts with good sharpness and the canal adding nice lead in lines and perspective. Good reflections too. The people add scale and animate the shot. Merci et bon semaine!

    Hi Neyvan

    Good shadow detail in the sculpture with excellent graphism against the lighter bg sky and excellent sharpness. The circle frames the statue nicely and good to include breathing space around the margins. The bird at right is an interesting additional element. Well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Hi Steven

    There are similar blue grottoes in Capri, Greece and Turkey so it's nice to see one more from Malta. The prow of the boat adds nice lead in lines and perspective. Superb warm cold color contrasts between the blue and yellow. The natural rock arch frames the bg scene nicely. Good sharpness density levels and saturation. Tfs!

    Hi Alexander

    The checked path adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective towards the bg street. Good sharpness, and excellent colour and saturation. A marvellous blue sky backdrop to contrast against the yellow green vegetation. The flowers add a welcome splash of colour. The swirl patterns add interest. Tfs!

    Hello Maria

    An exceptional shot with fantastic sharpness, symmetry and composition. Nice repetition of the posts at left and the lights and design patterns in the walls and ceiling of this curved interior shot. The red floor contrasts well against the blue hues to give a splendid warm vs cold colour contrast. The K35 / 36 signs add balance to the composition. Tfs!

    Hi Bev

    A superb upward pov with a nice minimalist composition and a semi abstract framing. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the inverted v shaped support wires. The 2 lighter toned structures left and right add good symmetry. The minimalist colour works well too. Good shadow detail in the underbelly. Tfs!

    Hello Craig

    I will have to add this place to my bucket list next time I am in the Naples area. The yellow cupola on the horizon contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and well composed. Nice fg reflections in the sea and the men on the small fishing boats animate the scene. The bg castle adds interest. The outdoor dining area with people at left balances the composition. Tfs!

    Hello Resat

    Well composed shot here with good sharpness, colour and saturation. The red flowers contrasts well against the blue grey colours. Nice reflections in the wet pavement. The bg building reminds me a little of the 7 sisters building in Warsaw. Nice repetition of the gold statues. The path adds strong lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Tfs!

    Bonjour Christiane

    A superb sunset with good sharpness and excellent composition utilising the rule of thirds, with good sharpness and superb saturation. I like the z shaped cloud illuminated above the setting sun. The dark tongue of rocky shoreline at right adds a nice touch of graphism. Excellent warm cold color contrasts between the blue grey and orange hues. Tfs!

    A simple minimalist shot with a superb backdrop of blue sky. Good sharpness and the diagonal tilt of the wings adds interest. The red nose of the light aircraft contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Daniel

    Smart choice of a vertical frame with superb use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point provided by the converging dual lines of the narrow street. The red flag contrasts well against the blue sky to give a nice warm vs cold color contrast. The car and people are well placed near the back vanishing point. Tfs!

    Hello Ourania

    Effective tight framing with clever use of the strong diagonal in the composition, nicely bisecting the image into two. Good warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue as well as the yellow fishing nets. I like the contrast in textures and shapes of the ropes, wooden side of the boat and the fishing net draped over the side. Impeccable sharpness and excellent color and saturation. Tfs!

    Bonjour Jean

    The contrast between the empty fg and crowded mid section of this beach is striking. Good sharpness and the winking sign adds life and humor to the shot. Nice to see the bg forested in green and not covered in a concrete jungle of high rise which has happened to many other beaches around the world. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Excellent sharpness also. The fg sandcastle at left adds to the shot. Tfs!

    Nice repetition of the sunflowers with a superb warm cold color contrast betweeen the yellow flowers and the blue grey sky. Good sharpness and saturation. Well composed using the rule of thirds with the horizon well positioned away from the centre. I like the slanted rays of sunlight emanating from the clouds top left. Tfs!

    A superb high vantage point with good sharpness and the u shape of the bay nicely guides the eye around the image. Good color and saturation. I see an Australian gum tree or eucalypt top right! And some fg prickly pear native to central America. The repetition of the palms along the avenue adds interest. Tfs!

    Ciao Luciano

    Nice use of the arches as framing devices with the dark arch at the back well posaitioned over the vanishing point. The man in robes adds scale and animates the scene as well as adding context. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Excellent side lighting and good shadow detail. Good textural detail. Tfs!
