    Hi Serge
    Love the way you have filled the frame with the interaction of shapes, strong diagonals, reflections and bold colours creating a fine abstract. Credit to your keen trained eye. Wonderful imagery so well presented. Congrats

    Hi Pedro
    Something diff from you tis time Pedro! It's a great action capture and wonderful dabs of colour and I really like the skier's wake in the water adding a nice balance to the composition which also lends the sense of energy and movement to the image. Excellent image despite the circumstances, I know just how difficult it is to capture an image like this. Lovely, Congrats and tfs.

    Hi Daniel
    An appealing street scene with retro charm! as the catchy tram grabs attention as prominent subject. I love the shooting angle and immense perspective with strong converging lines leading the eye to infinity stretching the view all the way. Exposure works fine, nice colors which suits the environment really well. Quality shot indeed! Congrats. TFS

    Hi Maciej
    A well thought out compo as the galleon is perfectly juxtapositioned taking us to the lighthouse on the left frame. Excellent colour-tones in brill light and clarity. The deep blue water is another attractive element which also acts as effective foreground. Great image, Congrats

    Hi Ryszard
    An excellent take so full of detail, liveliness plus the architectural beauty as strong bg interest - thus it's obvious to see why you'd want to capture this scene; full of charm of a pleasant town, bright deep warm yellow, red and blue sky for contrast. Lovely shot on a bright sunny day, Well done. Congrats

    Hi Nicolas
    A scene of great beauty to one who appreciates snow mountains just the kind of shot we need on a hot day. The light adds to the mood of the environment and you've also caught the cloud coming over the ridge just right in my opinion. Beautiful work the detail & colour rendition in this fine composition are excellent. Congrats

    Hi Eleu
    A superb capture of this lovely little flitty feathered friend with some excellently timed to capture the wings movement - even 1/1000 hasn't stopped them - as it's so much a part of what makes this so unique!! A beautiful capture, well balanced and well composed. Congrats

    Darker shallow dof bg transforms the already attractive butterfly looks even more graceful within its world. A fine closed up work, a standout shot with adequate clarity, sharpness, the priceless detail and colour contrast. Excellent capture, Congrats

    Hi Pavle
    Looks a very peaceful retreat well shot on a warm day with lots of detail in focus, good contrast between the greenery and the earthy brown tones. I like the inclusion of the old plow on the left which somehow glues, and inviting the eye to explore the whole area. The diagonal approach works best here. A very nice composition. Congrats

    A nice tranquil scene capturing the water feature well, but what is more impressive is the shades of verdant greenery, colours and clarity excel in your impressive exposure. Superbly composed, Congrats and tfs.

    Hi Will
    A very fine seascape captured at that time of day with that sense of cold stillness, everything asleep, waiting for the sun to bring it to life. A shot that provides the best colour and light and interesting water detail in the f/g. The magnificent clarity in the sky has influenced the whole image with its colour. Full of atmosphere beautifully exposed and presented. Great lens work, Congrats

    P/S Thks to your comment on my last upload: The veil as seen is tradition for married women and nothing to do with religion. Many married Indian women especially in the villages are expected to cover their heads especially when they are talking to strangers and normally they have shied away from the camera and veiled their heads. From what I have seen, the tradition of veils has almost died in the cities but still prevails in rural India. Simple customs prevail all over the world, and should be treated with empathy and respect.

    Hi Paul
    I like the centered composition here. You've done a great job creating a certain balance between the overpowering colour of the fabrics and the more spacious room. Having those powerful colours that lead into the middle just off gives the shot a nice bit of tension. Good job! Congrats
    Thanks to your brief foreword.

    Captivating view with contrasting mansion emerging across the high horizon shaded by the grey sky with excellent foreground features extending the whole depth. It is the deep colour and its stunning contrast that make this image really sing! A remarkable shot with good balanced compo & view which reveals how good this picture is. Congrats

    This is a scene to inspire fairy tales!! Picturesque indeed with excellent detail and what a fantastic weather there, it's thoughtfully and carefully composed image you just want to dive into. The green of the water is beautifully unusual and the church on the tiny island provide a strong focal for the eye to rest. What an incredible location beautifully captured, gorgeous! Congrats & tfs.
