    Bonjour Christian,

    The outdoor entertainers are intriguing. The hot magenta pink carpet or mat is eyecatching and contrasts well against the green cyan water. Good sharpness and the crowds add scale and context. The 2 bg castles add interesting focal points. Tfs.

    Greetings from Albania! A lovely landscape or rather, seascape with wonderful saturated colours. Nice cloud patterns with a soft silky texture in the water. Well framed and composed. Tfs.

    Hello Mesut,

    A superb portrait of the old contemplative woman nicely framed by the 2 wooden door panels either side. The natural wood contours and patterns add interest. Good sharpness and the colorful and distinctive costume sheis wearing is eye catching. Tfs.

    Hello Ike.

    One from your gallery. Water is life is a common theme in many arid and semi -desert regions of the world. That is amply illustrated here with the greenery hugging the moist cliffs. The turquoise color of the water is amazing. Tfs.

    A nice impromptu catch of the impromptu models and their enthusiastic female photographer friend. The diffused light works well here to add flattering light to the women's faces. Tfs.

    I like the man's foot outside the frame to add a 3d effect. Good downward pov and excellent sharpness. The colorful women's dresses contrast against the rather drably dressed tourists. Tfs.

    The curving yellow tipped stairs and their repetition add interesting lead around lines in this image. The diagonal straight lines of the upper stairs provide a striking contrast, & sharpness throughout is excellent. Tfs.

    Hello Craig,

    Great and very refreshing (pyschologically at least), to see some snow on a hot day of 40c in Albania. Good sharpness and natural looking color. The red walls of the huts contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hi Eleu

    Effective tight framing and I guess in an arid desert-like climate around Las Vegas succulent plants that conserve moisture are the rule rather than the exception. Wonderful repetitive patterns and an interesting accompanying note. I was fascinated by the Saguaro cacti. Saw a couple at the LV chocolate factory! Tfs.

    Hi Lars,

    Good sharpness and perspective has been well managed placing the verticals centrally. I tried placing both the Eiffel Tower and Big Bemn off to the side of the image frame but the distorted angles made it seem unnatural. A good angled pov showing 2 facades and the distinctive French-styled architecture. Tfs.

    Hello Murat,

    A very colorful theme park and I vaguely recall reading Doctor Suess in the early 1960's as a small child. The winding gray road at right adds superb lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Good sharpness and the people add scale and animate the scene. Tfs.

    Ciao Silvio,

    Looks similar to the Canadian or US Rocky Mountains. The snow capped peaks are a welcome sight with temperatures here in Albania around 40c. Good sharpness and color. The dark green pine trees add a nice graphic element. Tfs.

    Hi Ike

    I think the pink blue hour shot is the best of the series but this one is nice too. Perfect sharpness which gets more difficult as the light fades. I like the warm cold color contrast between the fg yellow and bg illumination. Tfs.

    Hello John,]

    For sure an uncommon portrait in your gallery and the 'young' man is about the same age as my nephew. The soft diffused light works well here. Fantastic sharpness and smart use of a shallow dof to isolate him from the bg. Tfs.

    Hi Mics,

    I've been to Palawan (El Nido) but not Coron, which I only flew over on a flight back to Manilla. Loved El Nido and the same inviting turquoise color of the water and eroded limestone can be seen here. A nice tribute to Lisa and yes she is passionate about equal rights for indigenous peoples.

    Hi Burak,

    Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the red city hall buildings and the blue hour sky. I might have tried a higher shutter speed to freeze the fg people and reduce motion blur, or even a lower shutter speed to get even more ghost-like motion blurred images of the people to give a more artistic effect. Good sharpness and saturation. Tfs.
