    Ciao Pierre,

    The difference in both light contrasts and colour saturation is readily apparent when critiquing an image from Newfoundland and then to a tropical locale such as this. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the patterns formed in the pavement with the rectangles. The red and white hurdles at the end add interest. Tfs!

    Ciao Luciano

    I like the distorted angles and the reflection in the glass facades. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. The blue sky and white colours of the building go well together and the 45 degree tilt adds dynamism. The al fresco diners provide interest along with the man holding a cellphone as he walks along the street. Tfs.

    Bonjour Denis,

    Striking warm cold colour contrasts between the bright red salmon pink and honeycomb yellow facades of the buildings at right against the blue sky. Good sharpness and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point at the 2 white cars. The people add scale and animate the scene. Tfs.

    Hello Bev,

    Missed this one. The picturesque walking track looks to be in fair condition with proper stone steps and not just a rutted, eroded incline like some walking tracks in Australia. Good sharpness and the reddish brown dried vegetation sets up a superb warm cold colour contrast against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hello Francesco,

    A superb backlight that makes the Autumn leaves appear to glow and be translucent. Good sharpness and the dual spans of the old stone bridge attract attention. The fast flowing Tiber River looks more turbulent than I would have imagined. The arch at right nicely frames the lamppost. Tfs.

    Hi Mesut,

    Looks a little like Afrodisias theatre. Good sharpness and great that most of it has survived relatively intact over the centuries. I hope that what is happening in Iraq with Isis never happens in Turkey. It would be criminal. I guess this was the entertainment complex of its day. Good sharpness and natural looking colour. Tfs. Edit. It just dawned on me that this IS Aphrodisias! I checked another image and sure enough it is. The museum there was great. http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Middle_East/Turkey/Aegean/Aydin/Aphrodisias/photo408195.htm

    Hello Roger,

    Have not seen one of these since I was a kid in 1960's Brisbane, Australia. They phased them out for diesel in the 70's and electric trains in the 80's. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. I am half expecting to see Casey Jones! Wishing now I had of gone from Durango to Silverton in Colorado by steam train. Excellent colour and saturation. Tfs.

    Hello Malgo,
    A colourful ensemble of houses cleverly constructed from the materials at hand. I like very much the saturated colours and the presence of the people, even though they are 'incomplete'. Excellent exposure and clarity results in some beautiful textural details. A place designed for the tourists no doubt, but so what as long there are wonderful scenes like this for the observant photographer to capture.

    Hello Silvio,
    Despite its rather dilapidated condition the beauty of the frescoes in this abandoned church is still there for all to see. A well exposed image with good colours and detail.

    Hello Pierre,
    The side-on view helps in the creation of a classical composition adhering to the rule of thirds. I like the minimalist effect and the restricted tonal palette that helps create a certain mood. Good rendering of the textural detail.

    Hello Frank,
    Your chosen point of view and the close framing accentuates the strong graphical lines of the architecture. The red and white sits well against the clear blue sky. Agreeable lights and colours and very good rendering of the textural detail.

    A fine composition featuring this charming little chapel. What I like especially are the contrasts in light and shade between foreground and background putting the emphasis clearly on the chapel. Top class technical realisation. Bon dimanche.

    Hello Bev,
    I like the low point of view and the use of the remains of the columns to draw us in; very clever. The ruined arch sits well against the brooding sky. The light was not that good but the colours and detail are very well depicted. Thanks for sharing.
    I recommend Porto for a visit, lots of cheap flights and plenty to see and do. Just be ready for the hills:-) Have a pleasant Sunday afternoon.
