    Hi Jean
    You would agree that we can never get tired or bored watching this famous icon and lovely low exposure night-time without blowing the subject and yet good amount of glittering light and colours are retained with stunning contrast to deep night sky. The lower portion is a real bonus to whole capture. A fine capture. Congrats

    Hi Ryszard
    You have captured the majesty of the spanning old iron bridge so beautifully with effective diagonal touch and delicious to see on how the eye is lead so gently all the way. The surrounding area reflects the sense of a place and the green colours brightens and blends to wonderful clouded blue sky beautifully. A lovely shot well presented and tx to the infor notes, pleasure to read. TFS.

    Hi Eleu
    Flamingos don't have the most handsome of face but showing close up like this is totally diff than the conventional shot possibly one of the best ways to present this Eleu with stunning depth of gorgeous colour and detail making this a delicious capture. Indeed a glorious capture with subtle result and pleasure to look. Congrats

    Hi Jean
    A peaceful river scene at twilight, and the glorious moment smartly captured abound of interesting details and colours. The touches of pinkish tones makes everything sparkle with fabulous reflection on the still water gives the extra punch and what a way to clinch the shot. Well done, TFS.

    Hi Daniel
    What an awe-inspiring sight. Love that green kryptonite like hue in pitch dark night sky. It's understandable that there's no firm ground to keep the camera still but the foreground adds the little something to the shot; the extra depth, colours contrast and motion effect with attention still on the main focal. Absolutely spectacular shot wish I had been there to see it personally. What an incredible sight, TFS

    Hi Nicolas
    Excellent high colour contrast - almost two dee feel, and I love the precision taken from high pov so the hub of the dominant sits exactly on the intersection of the thirds vertically and horizontally forming a strong base for the picture to sit upon making the picture heavy bottom but the dominant blue above balances which adds to it's massive appeal. I'm very impressed with your ideas, and Clever stuff, Congrats.

    Hi Silvio
    This is so solid stone church that we can only imagine its age - aged beauty indeed revealing its wonderful architectural style and abound of detail to savour. I love the perspective and pov, wonderfully managed exposure, lovely colour saturation and also there's a nice scale reference. You have done a fine foto work here, Excellent catch. TFS

    Hi Pavle
    Both top and bottom of the capture reflect sufficient features; the sky and water with their natural colours and textures towards end of day with minimal foreground. What i like most the is how the liquid is frozen giving the extra something there. Very well exposed and composed shot and the distant shore complements nicely. Well done, Congrats.

    Hi Krzysztof
    Wet day after rain and warm light light are perfect ingredients for a few shots like this and there is something to focus on pulling the eye about the lively looking town. There's some striking bold colours around but i feel the church being the most prominent grabs attention creating lots of interest. The wet pavement and deep grey sky really work to good effect and you did not go overboard with the saturation. What a contrast of colour, skillfully presented I truly admire. Well done, Congrats

    Hi Ike
    Nice image to say it's off a mobile phone with so much detail, clarity & colours and the good composition helps a lot. A phone is not a tool I would think of using to take my main photos but if you don't have a camera with you and you are presented with a scene you like then, I think they make a sensible job as very good little backup. Lets be fair they are improving all the time....
    Well done, Tfs.

    That's an eye grabbing stuff looking closeup with striking colours, bold & crystal clear and expressive that you managed to get most of it in. What smart abstract eyes you have! An excellent observation so delicately shot. Congrats

    A cool Turkeman attracts the viewer's eye. The soft tones without hard shadows, full facial feature and smile are all strong contributing factors for portraiture with fairly good shallow dof. A successful shot stealing the moment so precisely. Well done, TFS

    A smart way to direct the eye straight to main focus of interest - is by converting this to mono thus eliminating all the unnecessary confusion & distraction. The sky area looks a bit noisy which can be cleaned easily, and that is the minor point. Great capture. TFS

    A good informal street scene obviously the view point works well but it's also nice in the way that focus is on the people. Wonderful low morning sun light and long shadows play with the bike anchors firmly there, lots of detail and colours to strike the eyes. Nice shot, Congrats.

    Hi Danos
    Sit, relax and watch the show of colours at sunset and having that stark silhouetted interests make this a strong compo. Not your best, exposure looks fairly distributed though, but I miss some detail in heavily shadowed areas. Well done, tfs

    Heavens, I would never have guessed that this was shot on an iPhone Jason. I am really pleased to see that you turned it onto the world around you rather than present us with a selfie! I can live with your shadow :)

    Good colours and punchy 3D letters make this a creative and well seen shot. Not what I would expect as a Moscow photograph on TE and all the more interesting because of that!

    Hello Satya - I presume that the men go out to sea in the boats we see in the distance. I cannot imagine how they manage to catch such huge fish in such vessels. What a sight it must be to witness them hauling in the catch! I can see from your shot that alongside the weariness brought on by hard physical labour there is also joy and satisfaction.

    A superb DL shot and one that brings this quote to mind

    Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime
