    Bonjour Jean,

    A superb downward pov from a high vantage point with the red roofed houses tripping down the steep hillside towards the sea. The urban area at left contrasts well with the more open greenery at right presumably vineyards. Good sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    I've no idea what this is only that it looks interesting so thanks for posting it. The statue at left and commemorative wreaths suggest a patriotic memorial of some kind, so perhaps the sculpture is a Russian flag? Good sharpness and shadow detail. Tfs!

    Kalispera Danos,

    A wonderful elevated high pov overlooking the sea with the darker silhouetted island top left and 2 moored yachts at right adding graphism to the colorful sunset shot. The sun is well positioned in the frame and perfectly exposed with no lens flare. I like the reflection cone in the water too. Tfs!

    Congratulations to Turkey for surviving its first 91 years! Hope there are many centuries ahead full of promise for Turkey. The warm orange red glow of the illuminated smoke contrasts well against the fg blue grey tones of the boy (who is atop someones shoulders) jeans and shirt. The flag makes an appropriate focal point.

    Hola Jose

    A superb vertical bookmark shot of the tower with good sharpness and excellent pov. Adequate sharpness but could be sharpened selectively excluding the sky, which I would have blurred in parts (the blue) to mask the artifacts and pixellation. Nice warm cold color contrasts too. Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    My train to Genova stopped here for an hour, so I know this spot. Good high pov with great sharpness and vibrant color. The beach looks strangely deserted after it was packed in mid summer. I guess the tourists have to actually work sometimes rather than lie on the beach! Tfs!

    Ciao Lisa,

    I sometimes miss these distinctive colors of Australia. Then I remember the flies the heat and humidity! But this is not the Kimberly or central Australia so I'd imagine it would be quite pleasant! Wonderful reflections with good saturation and crisp clear light. Tfs!

    Hello Miguel.

    I might have blurred the sky so that the pixellation and artefacts are masked. Good aerial view of the rugged coastline with the unmistakable blue Mediterranean Sea at far right. Reasonable sharpness and the s shaped bridge makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Miguel

    A superb aerial shot with the tiny white yacht alone in the vast sea adding scale and proportion. Good sharpness and excellent pov. The puffy white cauliflower clouds add interest. The small town along the shoreline and advancing up the cleared hillside to the left makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Cricri

    A romantic shot of the happily newlyweds on their honeymoon at the beach. The sunset makes a superb backdrop. Good sharpness and density levels that have given clean, punchy blacks and whites in the tonal range. The horizon line is well placed away from the centre and the vertical format suits perfectly. Tfs!

    Hello Ourania,

    The honey yellow colored facade of the building contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and excellent saturstion. I like the downward pov through the weed choked path towards the rubbish bin and sharp turn right. Excellent shadow detail and framing. Tfs!

    Hello Brian,

    They occasionally also have these tall ships parades in Australia but I have not been quick or alert enough to attend, or busy with other things. This one looks like a painting with the slight misty look and feel. Good sharpness and the crowded decks full of people show these are not scale models! Good saturation and framing. Tfs!

    Hello Ike

    I like the flattened perspective from the zoom lens. Good sharpness and the highrise buildings look dangerously close even though they are really far away. Well composed with the horizon line well positioned away from the centre. Good density levels and pov. Tfs!

    Hi Carlo

    Good sharpness with a warm ambiance and light. Good saturation and the honey yellow facades of the tightly packed buildings contrast well against the blue sky. The diagonal rock shelf adds dynamism. Perspective has been well managed with the verticals placed centrally. Tfs!

    A good upward pov and the reflections in the muddy water are superb. Effective tight framing with no part of the image space wasted. Good daily life scene from Cambodia. The thatched roof of the bg boat adds interest. Nice warm cold color contrasts too. Tfs!

    Bonjour Jean Jacques

    This reminds me of the entrance to Rhodes Harbour in Greece. Good symmetry of the 2 castles either side and their warm yellow red colour contrasts well against the blue sea and sky. Well composed with the horizon line placed well below the centre. Excellent sharpness and pov. Tfs!

    Nice repetition of the fg red and yellow boats tightly clustered in one group in the fg. Their warm colors contrast superbly against the blue water and sky. Good sharpness and excellent backdrop of the whitewashed houses along the shoreline in the distance. Tfs!

    A difficult shot to meter correctly, but you've managed well here with excellent shadow detail and no oe in the sky. Good sharpness and saturation and I like the angled pov. Excellent repetition of the arches and columns. The people add scale. Tfs!

    A surprise on opening the thumbnail to discover they are scale models of beach huts or bathing change sheds! The sign is self explanatory. Well composed with a pleasant diffused light and excellent sharpness. The angled pov works well here. Tfs!
