    Hello Ike,

    A fine panoramic shot of Jerusalem shot from a marvellous high vantage point. Wonderful contrast between the green park like fg at left and the more barren, desolate right side of the image. Good color, sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

    Hello Nicole,

    These quiet little 'backstreets' or rsther canals of Venice I find equally attractive to the major sites on the Grand Canal. The gondola and the bg bridge make fine focal points in the distance. A good result in tricky lighting conditions. Merci!

    A superb downward pov with the people adding both scale & context. The yellow steps at the bottom set up a nice warm vs cold colour contrast against the blue grey hues. Ornate work in the balustrades. Well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    A superb interior architectural shot that reminds me of a perched spider. Good sharpness and light levels. The flash has done its job well. Nice repetitive patterns in the brickwork. Well composed and the red brickwork contrast well against the dark navy blue in the bottom right. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen,

    Good control over perspective with the vertical lines level throughout. Nice shadow detail with good sharpness and a superb warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue and yellow ochre colours. Good to have the windows open and closed at various stages. Tfs!

    Salut Laurent,

    A superb daily life scene from India with the bright colorful saris of the women instantly grabbing attention. Good sharpness and saturation. An unbelievable amount of litter in the alley at left, contrasting with the people getting fresh water for tea. Tfs!

    Hello Klaudio,

    I am missing Melbourne after viewing this image. I used to go through Flinders Street Station many times, albeit a long time ago now. Nice repetition of the yellow / tan tent structures, which also contrast well against the blue grey sky. Tfs!

    Ciao Cara Lisa,

    A nice tribute. One of the Australian victims on MH17 was a relative of 2 passengers from Brisbane on flight MH370. Absolutely tragic. I love the repetition of the naturally occurring patterns and shapes in the eroded beach rock platform. A nice reflection with good sharpness and warm cold colour contrasts. Tfs!

    Hello Brian,

    Good tonal range with clean blacks and whites and nice repetition of geometric patterns and shapes, with good sharpness. The strong diagonal line adds dynamism and the sleek curves enhance the composition. Nice reflections to add to the effect. Tfs!

    Hello Bev,

    I wonder what archaeologists will make of this in 2000 years time? Was it a tumulus for a forgotten great Queen of England? An amusement park or some such. Fantastic greenery with agood upward pov. The people add scale. Tfs!

    Hi Burak,

    The solitary person certainly adds scale, to Niagara Falls in the bg. Good sharpness and partial silhouettes with the diagonal fence adding dynamism. The yellow green grass contrasts well against the blue grey sky. Tfs!

    Bonsoir Jean Jacques,

    Wonderful alternating facades of colour on the sides of the buildings. Good sharpness, saturation and density. The crowds of people along the narrow esplanade add scale and context. Nice repetition of the boats with some good reflections. Tfs!

    A fascinating subject that reminds me of the shipwrecks and Maritime Museum in Fremantle, Western Australia, although this is much much older than the the 17th & 18th centuries. The vessel depicted here on a diagonal angle adds perspective and makes a fine focal point amongst the stylised waves either side. Tfs!

    A superb street-scape and daily life scene from Germany. Good sharpness and density levels that have given clean whites and blacks. The red flowers add a welcome splash of color. Nice repetitive patterns in the cobblestone street. Tfs!

    Bonjour Didi,

    From the thumbnail it looked like you had been to Zanzibar or Egypt. The style of boats is similar. Good sharpness and nice impressionist reflections. A fine exposure on the white highlights of the sail, Bon semaine!

    Hi Nicou,

    I like the aerial perspective here and layering of tones from black in the fg to dark orange in the mid-ground then pale orange in the bg. Good use of the tree to filter the strong sunlight and it also had given good silhouettes. Tfs!

    Good choice of a vertical frame to accentuate the meandering stream, with excellent sharpness and superb framing and colour saturation. I like the warm cold color contrast between the yellow green and blue grey. Tfs!

    Merhaba Deniz,

    Amazing repetition of the arch patterns with pinpoint sharpness as evidenced by the text at the top. Fine words, but Mussolini was a Fascist Dictator who aspired to none of the words in the text, but saw them merely as a Nationalistic propaganda tool to further his own ends. It ended badly for him. I like the curved crescent shapes within some of the arches. Tfs!

    Hello Serge,

    Fantastic warm cold color contrasts between the yellow rapeseed flowers and the blue sky. Good sharpness and perfect saturation levels. Excellent density too which has given clean whites and blacks. The dark bg trees add a graphic element. Tfs!
