    Hi Malgo,

    A stunning Cuban sunset with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The old cars in the street add place and context. A nice silhouette of the lone palm tree and the clocktower beside it makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo,

    This looks more north African in style than Cuban, but I guess the Spanish and French were in North Africa so that would explain the similarity. The blue and white colors remind me of Wedgwood bone china. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo,

    Right time, right place right photographer right weather. Everything falls into place in this superb Spring shot with wonderful yellow daffodils and red tulips gracing the fg. The bg Wilanow Palace looks familiar. Tfs!

    Hi Pedro,

    Bright and cheerful colors of yellow, red and chocolate that contrast well with the cooler tones of the blue sky. Excellent sharpness and good shadow detail and upward pov on the rotunda. Tfs!

    Hello Craig,

    Tragic news from Bergen today of 13 killed in a helicopter crash near Bergen returning from a North Sea oil platform. This isn't quite the view I had from the summit. But it is still excellent. I was lazy and took the funicular train. Tfs!

    Hi Danos

    I wish Rio every success. I believe this will be the first time the Olympics has ever been held in South America. Making the event truly global. The ceremony of transferring the flame is well shown here. Tfs!

    Hello Paul

    I like the aerial perspective of receding tones in the bg hills. The warm colors of the fg contrast starkly with the cooler blue tinged colors in the bg. Tfs!

    Hi Jean,

    I think I prefer the 39c with bright sun to this dull overcast weather but that's not your fault. Good repetition of the gondolas with a pleasant diffused light to compensate for the grey day. Tfs!

    Bonjour Denis

    Good use of diminishing linear perspective with vanishing point. The rows of tulips provide lines converging towards the back and deep perspective. A nice warm cold color contrast too between the red flowers and the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Ourania,

    This reminds me of shop windows in Rhodes. Lovely warm earthy colors of orange, tan and gold with formidable sharpness and nice color saturation. The face is intriguing. Tfs!

    Oi Alexandre,

    Looks like Moreton Island off the coast from Brisbane. Good sharpness and the yellow dune buggy contrasts well with the blue sky. I like the patch of sunlight on the distant dune. Tfs!

    Hello, Mesut!

    The only camel I saw in Turkey was at Harran near Sanliurfa so it was a surprise to see one here in Goreme too. The triple spired fairy chimney makes a great backdrop. Tfs!

    Bonjour, mon ami Philippe,

    The pale yellow orange facade of the manorhouse or chateau and its red roof contrast well with the blue sky to give a superb warm cold colour contrast. Good sharpness and well composed with plenty of breathing space right around. Tfs!

    Hello John,

    It looks like a watercolor painting. Perhaps a slightly faster shutter speed to avoid motion blur of the people? Good sharpness otherwise and the bridge makes a fine focal point. The yellow green ivy contrasts well with the grey blue sky. Tfs!

    A stunning reflection with good sharpness and nice rippling effect from the light wind. A good decision to invert the image to make it easier to identify key features. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    A good decisive moment capturing the man at the top of the escalator. He makes a good focal point and his dark clothing provides a graphic element against the lighter toned bg. Tfs!

    The fg red poppies add both repetition and a warm cold color contrast with the blue sky. Good sharpness and the belltower makes an obvious focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Mariusz,

    At first glance it looks like a war memorial. The Freemasons is a little known and shadowy organisation, more so in the US than the UK. The sharpness is impeccable. Tfs!
