    Hi Rosemary
    Mono works better, as it gives the shot contrast which is perhaps quite low in the original and more importantly it appears easier on the eye. The posture and the expression are the most intriguing parts, but possibly one way to keep the bench for all himself! Anyway tis is an excellent street candid at capturing the precise moment, Congrats.

    Hi Jean
    A superb clear separation between dark night sky and glittering light and colours. The imposing and huge church adds a nice effect as strong point of focus lending lot of liveliness to whole capture. An appealing low light scene nicely composed and exposed, what a great way to finish it with the catchy mirror reflections. A captivating shot, Congrats, TFS.

    Hi Nicolas
    A catchy image almost flattens the perspective portraying the tight identical A frames - shapes, and interests around. The bit of deep blue sky is great addition, it's bright and clear crisp shot and wealth of bright colours to enjoy. Great zoomed shot well put together. Congrats.

    Hi Ryszard
    An engaging super spiral staircase with its dynamic composition, well seen pendulum line and great control of highlights, shadows and colors full of graphical value. You've got the colour tones and exposure spot on and impressive viewpoint. The additional picture is more enlightening and always interesting to have people around to show us the size proportion. Superb photo work so well executed supported by go foreword, Congrats.

    Hi Philippe
    Nice bit of open space with depth and good colour combination with the beautiful chateau attracts to rest the eyes. The lush tree and the stonewall in the foreground create a pleasant natural framing. A shot seamlessly handled packed by great clarity and contrast. Well done, TFS

    Hi Pavle
    Really well contained as we can feel the unfavorable bleak & atmospheric image it conveys with glimpse of breaking colour in the distant. It's well cropped and exposed displaying the reality in true colours and depth with interests throughout. Well done

    Hi Krzysztof
    A study in perspective, depth and shapes. Congrats on your 3500 uploads unsure I can ever reach that numbers. I like the dark clouds and low perspective stretching the wooden jetty all the way into the far bg while managing the clarity, detail and tones so confidently. Great capture and congrats once again.

    Hi Gert
    Good daily life candid - minus lighting harshness in the bg- which reminds me of a few wedding breakfasts that I've had the misfortune to take my elbows to........

    This under shade capture just had this vision of you with your sniper lens - Lol. Great shot full of characters, Well done

    HI Noel
    This church lookings rather gloomy superb in mono despite the promising sunlight on the heavy clouds.
    Love the drama and mood that the POV gives and the fg is so fitting to the overall image ....

    HI Ali
    A wide open wetland where centre of attraction is directed to mid frame with nice bit of clouds but as you can see, the reflection doesn't contribute much imho thus, cropping portion of bottom frame strengthen the comp. Well done, TFS

    Hi Ourania
    Personally the ropes looked indeed messy like a huge pile of spaghetti type mess. This sort of close inspection of a small part of the bigger picture does allow interesting shots to be obtained as your image today shows. Well done.
