    Hi Roger

    I also took some shots at Mather Point and posted them to TE. A spectacular part of the world and well worth the 17 hour flight across the Pacific from Australia. There might be quicker more direct flights but I stopped over in Hawaii on the way back. The red and blue colors give a tremendous warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs.

    Hello Silvio,

    The fog adds mood and atmosphere and I like how the fourteenth century castle pokes up above the mist and fog. Good sharpness and the red turrets contrast well against the grey blue clouds and mist. Tfs.

    Hello Beverley

    Clean energy such as wind or solar is infinitely preferable to nuclear or coal fired power station. Nice repetition of the turbines on the horizon and good reflections of the blue skylight in the tidal channels. The people animate the scene and add scale to the beach. The fg bushes wonderfully frame the bg scene. Tfs.

    Hello Malgo,

    Fantastic. It makes me want to book a ticket to South America. The catwalk above the turbulent river leading to a precipitous lookout add great lead in lines and the tourists add scale. Amazing repetition of the waterfalls. The fg branches add depth and framing. Tfs.

    Hello Gerrit,

    The 2 couples on the beach animate the scene and provide scale. The king tide mark with its debris of decaying coconut shells, husks, bottle tops and even a green coconut tell us the weather and beach are not always ideal. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. Tfs.

    Hi Ike.

    Wonderful symmetrical reflections in the mirror like surface of the water with good sharpness and saturation. I like the yellow kayak at top right adding a splash of warm color to contrast agaisnt the blue. The rippled effect in the water enhances the scene. Tfs.

    Good sharpness and a wonderful warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue hour sky and the yellow illuminated wall. Good repetition of the cross designs on the same wall which also adds deep perspective and lead in lines towards the back. Tfs.

    Bonjour Ghislaine!

    They chased me out of the fort at blue hour but I got some nice shots of this iconic Lisbon bridge anyway. The illuminated Christ statue in the distance on the opposite shore is very similar in style to the one in Rio. Nice reflections in the water and the warm orange colours add mood and ambiance. Tfs.

    A superb decisive moment catching the last short moments of the setting sun. Good sharpness and I like the saturated sunset colours of orange in the sky contrasting against the blue sea. The distant boat makes a good focal point. Tfs.

    Hello Silvio,

    A superb birds eye view of the green valley with the picturesque little village contrasting superbly against the rural surroundings. I might have added more shadows and contrast. A spectacular vantage point with impeccable sharpness and nice framing. Tfs.

    The dark lamppost at right nicely frames the urban scene and contrasts well against the white washed walls of the bg buildings. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. The blue sky sets off the white colors perfectly. Tfs.

    Hello dear Christiane,

    A nice contrast between the shoolboy and the middle aged lady out shopping. A superb daily life scene with good sharpness and colour. The street and gutter at right add deep lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective off towards the top left. Tfs.

    Bonjour Cricri

    Missed this one. Punchy light contrasts on account of the superb density levels. Good sharpness, color and saturation. It looks like a cosy retreat and bar. The open doors are most welcoming. I like the warm yellow red color of the doors contrasting against the blue anchor signs at left. Tfs.

    I like the angled pov and the repetition of the agave plants with their spiky pale green leaves. Good sharpness and the pink fg flowers add a welcome splash of colour to the palette. Nice use of diminishing linear perspective and the bg people add scale. Tfs.

    Deep Purple! Smoke on the water and fire in the sky, only the latter is true in this image and the colour fits the old song. Good saturation and sharpness and the lights of the small village in the valley add interest. Tfs.

    Hi Gert,

    It looks to be a dry and desolate area and the fg donkeys appear malnourished in this unforgiving land with their protruding rib cage bones. The goats and cattle have fared a little better. The camel makes an interesting backdrop. Good sharpness and lots of interesting details to look at. Tfs!

    Hi Sasha,

    A superb rural daily life scene of the harvested vineyard and pile of cut trees ready for further chopping to provide firewood for the winter ahead. The terrain certainly looks dry from lack of rainfall. A wonderful blue sky backdrop that contrasts well against the yellow fg dried grass. Tfs.

    Nice reflections in the water with good sharpness and marvellous repetition of the colourful fishing boats. The orange lifebuoys and the red and yellow trim on the boats contrasts well agaisnt the blue keels to give a pleasing warm cold color contrast. Tfs.
