    Hi Ike
    You have great subject of interest, a picturesque view by the waterways depicting the charming well preserved historic town famous for its architectural beauty. A lovely viewpoint emphasising on the extensive depth and perspective by using the diagonals of the canal and row of buildings to converge naturally in the far end. Light and tones are manageable with good contrast of colours against the calm dark water and the sheen is so wonderful boosting the total beauty and liveliness of the place. Simply a pleasing image despite the weather condition and so much to look at. It's a fine with great atmosphere and pleasure to look, Well done

    If the background appeals to you then I would consider to have a person to walk into the frame from left to right with more breathing space ahead but still balances the signboard on the extreme right. As it is the subject is walking away out of the frame which doesn't improve or make the compo work. This is my honest opinion, none the less, it's a fine attempt. Congrats

    Hi Maria
    So captivating and cheery neighbourhood, thanks to your infor notes, I can only imagine how creative they are by adding life to the wall full of vivid colors boosting the cheery mood of the place. That chico is so finely captured with good placement in the frame and the intense blue combination makes for a grand shot, standout and can be hard on the eyes. I simply cant resist the pulling power here. Great capture, TFS

    Hi Claude
    A good low light shot nicely detailed when the dark blue sky compliments the outline of the silhouetted building admirably and creating an attractive strong shapes, of course that speaks for itself. The fg have been reduced to such a minor role. Great capture braving the elements. Congrats

    Hi Lisa
    Eye popping rainbow of diff kind! It's well-timed shot besides being so colourful; your commentaries are most definitely A* Content-wise impeccable; needless to say they steal the show, perhaps only keen urban lifesnapper can recognise this unusual and exotic species and their determined body lingo. The contrast is effectively stronger lots more punch to counterpoint the background. This shot is hugely enjoyable and most entertaining to view, imho. You've captured the diversity, impressive and expressive image. Congrats

    Hi Will
    What a great idea getting these shots, it takes a good eye to see the shots and putting them together in such a pretty montage! I don't know how you have the patience. Looks like good fun, the colours are bright which increases the visual effectiveness and crisp and really captured the moments very well that looks we have something in common there - the bench. Every shot is excellent in its own right and the close cropping lets us focus on the individual and having the faces showing on all images are appealing to viewers' eye. The young couple in different poses is my fav. These are wonderful - what a good tonic to see them and to have a lovely chuckle, Good stuff. Brilliant montage

    It's the character with deep history lends all the charm and your viewpoint and compo make this a winning formula. Exposure control, colour rendition and delicate detail of the stonework are second to none. Well done.

    Hi Noel
    A moody shot of an artistic steely sculpture with messages full of content and thought evoking composition which works so very well in monochrome. There's always something strange about looking into the faces of statues, like being immortalized forever, locked inside metal giving me the creeps!! and I wonder how many people have freaked when stumbling into this in the dead of night. Excellent framing, textures and tonalities and beautiful inevitability, Tx to your lengthy foreword, Well done. TFS

There's so much to savour the eyes and lovely how dotted of sun seekers has further added liveliness to the shot. A magnificent depth, intensity of colours with extensive details and perspective.

    Another brave attempt at indoor shot using the little handy gadget, but as you can see there's lack of definition all round particularly on the hot spots over exposed areas. This also appears a bit 'cold' with greenish tinge, a sign of incorrect white balance & colour corrections. These are sincere constructive critiques from the bottom of my heart. Thank you.
