    Hi Stephen

    A good angled pov showing 2 facades of the same building with good sharpness and excellent warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and burgundy red exterior of the building. The blue grey panels at the bottom add compositional symmetry. Excellent linear perspective and the people at left add scale. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe,

    A superb birds eye view from this elevated vantage point, with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. I had to look twice to determine this is a scale model. The curved roof of the central building adds interest. This miniature version is unusual. It was the plastic white horse at top left that gave the game away. I wasn't sure about the goat. Tfs.

    Hello Malgo

    Fantastic warm cold colour contrasts between the orange and blue, with punchy light contrasts abd excellent saturation and density levels. It looks a little like Pueblo Indian dwellings in Colorado or even the albeit less colorful buildings of the old Hittite capital of Hattusa in Turkey. The cafe at the right looks like a nice place for coffee or tea. Tfs.

    Hello Ryszard,

    The hilltop castle makes a fine focal point and sharpness is excellent. Good color and saturation. I like the greenery of the surrounding forest. The red fg rooftops contrast well against the hazy blue mountains and the pale blue sky. Tfs.

    Hi JJ,

    I thought this might have been Florence. I took a few shots of the same bridge. Might upload them one day. The repetition of the arched windows in the facade of the building at right on the opposite bank is superb. The arches theme is repeated by the bridge at right. The warm yellow and orange colours contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Bonjour, Ike,

    I passed through Genoa (Genova) in summer 2013 but didn't go to Portofino. Nice to see what I missed and it looks to be a lovely seaside fishing village, too. Good colour and sharpness. Nice reflections in the water. Amazing repetition of the boats. Tfs!

    The three clumps of bright purple flowers resembling lavender add a vivid splash of colour to the scene. Good sharpness and excellent repetition of the stakes in the vineyard. The slope of the bg terrain imparts dynamism. Tfs.

    Hello Roger

    Coincidentally I also posted a shot from Austria today. I remember similar scenery around Salzburg and Innsbruck. Good colour saturation and excellent sharpness and framing. Smart choice of a vertical frame. The cloud patterns in the blue sky add interest. Vienna is only an hour south of me so when I get some free time I might go back there one day. Still have Brno and Ostrava in the Czech Republic to explore. Maybe over Easter? Tfs.

    Hello Murat,

    The nearly square format works well here. Good sharpness and shallow dof on the giraffe. Excellent colour and saturation with superb composition and framing. I've never been to central or southern Africa or even the Taronga Park Zoo in Sydney although I recall seeing a real giraffe at Melbourne Zoo in Australia. Tfs.

    Hi Francesco,

    Wow! A fantastic view of Mt Etna volcano covered in snow with good sharpness and a wonderful clear blue sky as a backdrop. I noticed Mt Ararat also generated its own weather with the same roll cloud depicted here. The uniform height of the apartment blocks adds symmetry and repetition. Tfs.

    Ciao Carlo,

    I like the sharpness in the fg gradually diminishing to soft focus in the bg. Good color added by the wildflowers. Superb saturation and smart choice of a vertical format. The yellow dandelions contrast well against the blue flowers to give a nice warm vs cold color contrast. Tfs.

    Ciao Francesco

    I like the red ^ shaped roof contrasting against the blue sky aloong with the orange red soil in the gaps between vines. Good sharpness and excellent framing and composition. Good use of diminishing linear perspective with the converging lines of the vineyards. Nice repetition of the cloud patterns. Tfs!

    Hi Denis!

    It looks similar to a passion-fruit flower and the density levels are superb. They've given solid blacks and clean whites along with good saturation and excellent lighting contrasts. Effective tight framing and wonderful backlight through the translucent like yellow green leaves. Tfs.

    Incredible repetition of the tulip? flowered white columns with impeccable sharpness and the solitary man walking towards the camera animates the scene and provides scale. Nice symmetrical reflections in the floor. What's not to like in this shot? Tfs.

    Bonjour Serge,

    A superb warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue sky and the red brick chimneys. Excellent sharpness and the dual sides of the complex add splendid lead in lines and linear perspective towards the back. Goo repetition and textural details of the fg flagstones. The jet trails in the blue bg sky add interest. Tfs.

    I like the cross shaped stance of the white Jesus statue atop the bg building, contrasting against the outlined cross on the fg church. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with natural looking colour. Excellent shadow detail in the bg hill. The red roofs and red brown door contrast well against the grey blue cloudy sky. Tfs.

    Hello Mesut,

    Nice repetition of the fg pigeons and a superb interaction between the small boy and his vertical alignment to the horizontal direction of the birds. Good sharpness and excellent sharpness and textural details in the flagstones. I like the top-light from the top right throwing long shadows to the left. Tfs.
