    Hi Neyvan
    A beautiful landscape, deep snow is always good value especially under the brilliant sunlight & colours and the title says it all. Nice crisp with the breath taking backdrop links nicely to the fg leading us into a nice scene. You have handled the exposure really well. Great capture, and TFS

    Hi Ana
    Indeed an old village very well blended into the natural mountain environment. Contrast of white and blue strengthen the shot with the building adds a nice bit of colour breaker, crispy sharp, neat and bags of detail with greater dof. Superb shot worthy an effort. Congrats

    I am struck by the strong back light and I like the idea of the sparking bloom emerging from the light surrounded by the overwhelming spring weather. The backlighting is just magical, it has something.....! Delightful capture

    Hi Carlo
    A strong background interest with the eye catching statues and pastel colours. Looks a scenic place to relax too as the foreground complemented the composition nicely with the trees frame the scene. Nice angle and perspective and I love how the touch of vivid red actually pulls the eye along. A pleasant short with lovely colours, pleasant lighting and contrast. Well done, Congrats

    Hi Mikio
    Love the vividness of the cherry tree efficiently created and romantic at the same time be it rain or not, it is a superb rendition of this image in fine details. Perspective and composition is just right but I love the contrast the couple create holding the point of focus. A joyous springtime picture indeed, Congrats.

    Hi Ryszard
    Great framing by using the arches & columns to peek through the archway and deep down, there's an immense depth and perspective taken from impressive view point. Exposure looks so pleasant, vivid in detail and soothing soft colours, the fig as shown is always valuable as expected. It's a fine work and seamlessly executed, Congrats.

    Hi Silvio
    Another great nature shot from you, a fine specimen that you've caught its colours, details sharp in focus and shallow dof so brilliantly Nothing to distract in the background and green has set off the subject even stronger. A remarkable closeup work, Congrats

    Hi Romano
    Lovely, I love the clear split of colours in this shot - specks eye pooping vivid reds on still water strengthen the total beauty of the landscape. The compo is impressive sufficiently packed with interests around seen from good elevated viewpoint as the youngsters on the crafts hold the focus point firmly. As usual your handling of exposure is exquisite. It's so peaceful river sight and always a pleasure to view. Well done shot, Congrats.

    What a successful architectural shot, you certainly have an eye for detail, the viewpoint and a great ability to translate them to the photographic image with consummate skill. Impressive composition and perspective that really draws the eye upward showing adequate detail, tones and contrasted by the grey sky. Good control of exposure despite the condition, an impressive lens work and excellent ws pictures too, Congrats

    Hi Patrick
    A good intimate kind of shot with more front-on and space in between to give good focus for the eyes and complete the context of the photograph.and deeper depth of field in such a pleasant exposure producing a wonderful balance shot. Great contrasting colours easily attracting the eyes and there's a lot to see in the shot - I will inevitably be struck by the beautiful dancing angels in the making. Khmer dancers are goddesses!!

    A delightful shot.

    Hi Patrick
    The lotus flower is one of the important images and symbols of Buddhism and commonly found in Cambodia It is nicely shot with human touch and all the elements attractively organised within the frame; the light, natural colors are sumptuous, delicate and the view point works a treat. Truly wonderful insight into local life, focusing and presentation. Well done.

    Very powerful shot rendered by the gorgeous colours, pleasant lighting and delicious water reflection that you managed well to get really good details and sharp in focus. Wonderful to see the contrast is set off by the deep blue so stunningly while the sheen and wiggles on the water really draw the eyes of a very welcoming scene! Great work

    Hi Christiane
    Gorgeous, the vivid colour is bang on, yes the vivid red saltish water is real and it is a strange sight when you see it in person i am sure. The composition is wonderful works best here, I think I never tire of seeing shot of this place. Good detail throughout which is subtly exposed particularly I Iove the ripples that you managed to capture. It's just breathtaking indeed coupled with the awesome contrast to blue sky, a shot looks out of this world. Congrats

    Hi Craig
    Three gen between them! I love the totally candid nature of most of the people shots - it makes me feel like I've had a chance to look at real life here. Cleverly observed and composed as we are also drawn to colours of this small area in such a relaxed simple life and this is particularly descriptive, a charming old time scene really does encapsulate Cuban life. An image full of colour and interest.
    ..all the adjectives are out for this one.
    Great work Craig
