    Hi Murat
    Tis is something typically Turkish, Lanterns. So many lovely patterns and wonderful colours, would have been very tempted to buy one! Nothing to distract the eye from the subject, it's so photo worthy....
    Well done capture, Congrats

    Hi Eleu
    Ferocious! That's a mean looking machine, you've done a good job, for me the helicopter position is spot on and you've used a good shutter speed to keep the motion in the rotor blades to reflect a sense of speed and action. The rich bg colour and subtle side lighting with the yellow really makes the image stand out and dynamic. Nice shot of a very menacing sight, for the enemy anyway...
    Congrats

    Hi Serge
    Refreshing fun shot & diff from you - missed this earlier- as my eyeballs have just blown up! LoL. An interesting zoom effect quite dizzying but certainly hold attention that you've achieved here particularly love the streaks of contrasting vibrant colours coupled by excellent control of exposure. Great technique, imaginative with excellent visual presentation, Congrats

    Hi Ryszard
    Really gives a feel for the lake and picturesque enough framed by the trees with lovely dapples of warm light on a slight greyish day. Deep green water and specks of brightly lit crafts in the distant add nice bit of contrast with lovely backlighting effect accentuating strength of this shot. I'd say mission accomplished with satisfying result. Congrats

    Hi Nicolas
    A superb scene before the sun sunk even lower, one of those moments that only lasts a few minutes! An image which at sometime most of us would have come across, however you have and the forethought and inclination to capture such an image. One which has been very well observed and so very well captured. Congrats

    The sky looks amazingly coloured with good portion of blue and uncomplicated with superb addition of the wonderful tree. Imho, a bit more sharpness would be just great. Well presented and captured. Congrats.

    A poignant capture and a reminder of climate change, an appropriate shot where everything playing its part in creating a dynamic and active image with the gushing water and the ideal colours suiting the condition. Hope you all have a great day, well done shot that has a serious message though. Congrats and tfs

    Hi Ike
    An excellent enough aerial shot showing the overall view of the terrain below and the pov enhances the real feel height and depth. The limited colour rendition portrays the outline with excellent clarity minus the glare from the window screen. The treatment works very well. A fine shot, tfs

    Hi Krzysztof
    Night shot superbly well done, excellent viewpoint & feel of depth to create these streaky brilliant lines of colour from the long exposure, composition as ever could not be better and exposed to perfection. The building is also beautifully lit showing up so well and the movement in the rest of the scene is amazing. A very pleasing to eye! Congrats

    Hi Romano
    Love what I am seeing here - the 20mm lens effect makes such an eye catching image with depth and great perspective. A grand architectural shot and diagonal layout technique to pull off, the subtle light, contrasting colours and detail lend this shot a cutting edge. A pretty pic so thoughtfully taken, Congrats

    Hi Craig
    Tired looking tourists! they make lively subjectin a relaxed informality complementing the famous architecture in the background filled with a wealth of immaculate details, eye popping colours and pleasant clarity. Excellent photo opportunity well snapped, Congrats
    Best wishes
    P/S Appreciate you critique on panning technique: It was the one of the most acceptable shotx taken under very frustrating circumstances out of two dozen images with monopod mounted like a mad man by the road side, but it's fun and enjoyable especially whn you're alone with no string attached. To me panning is a percentage game play; one in ten good shots is major league success; one in one hundred is not out of the ordinary but that 'one' will be worth all the trouble......
    Tx once again and hv a great wk end

    Good compo with the boat looks too prominent helping to settle the eyes in as strong point of focus. Frankly i feel the green colours appears unnatural and I believe a bit more texture on the reddish earthy tones in mid frame is beneficial. Excellent attempt nevertheless.

    Hi Kasia
    Enterprising man at work, a frame filling colour & lovely composition and low viewpoint which set up good impact for the product and the seller. I feel that the bg slightly out of focus really forces the eye to look at him creating a natural working portrait. A fine shot of street life. Well done, Congrats

    Hi Rosemary
    Buddhist monks are extraordinary people. The way they live makes you respect them regardless to what your believes are. Love this, up close and personal, with good depth of field and background darkness lends it a great purity and sharp where it needs to be. The 'holy' look and his in-depth rather serious expression create a real impact here with just enough relevant information on the setting. Compositionally very strong with a superb low pov and your camera work and standard of photography are very high which ever way you look at it. I would be proud to have taken it........
    Congrats

    Hi Roland
    It's about shooting into angled warm light, projection of long shadows and catchy pattern of the windows filling the frame diagonally. The choice of framing and pov is apt with excellent exposure and colour contrast, sometimes less is more and this image exemplifies so well. Great work indeed tx to your keen eye. Congrats
