    Hi Mesut,

    I love the glittery texture and light you've picked up in the snow. Hard to convey it sometimes but you've succeeded here! Good sharpness and tonal range in this attractive Christmas card image. The defiant pine tree is holding its own against the wind and snow. Tfs!

    Hello Caleb

    I changed buses there in Red Deer from Calgary to Sylvan Lake back in 2008. Good sharpness and wonderful textural and tonal details in the fg snow. A marvellous blue sky backdrop too. Lens barrel distortion from the wide angle, and perspective have been well managed with the verticals placed centrally. Exactly what I have learned to do. Tfs!

    Hello Neyvan,

    Good capture of this b&w religious procession with good sharpness and excellent tonal range and textural details. The crowds of people add scale and context. And as elsewhere, there are those who need to be surgically removed from their mobile phones as the man at right with unlit cigarette indicates. Tfs!

    Bonjour Ourania,

    Effective tight framing with striking warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue sky, upper red ceiling and lower yellow walls of the crumbling villa. The green curtain completes the color palette. The little Christmas star and Santa is a nice addition in the window. Tfs!

    Aha, I found one I'd missed. And its a good one too. Superb blue hour shot with wonderful symmetrical reflections and splendid warm vs cold color contrasts between the deep blue sky and the yellow illumination and pale reddish walls of the impressive castle. Tfs!

    Bonjour, chère Cricri,

    The 2 large areas of dark shadows add superb graphic elements, and despite their darkness, there is excellent shadow detail within. Lovely warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and yellow facades of the bg buildings. Looks a little like Nimes. Tfs!

    Hello Ann,

    A fine winter capture from the abandoned ghost town, with the yellow leaved willows contrasting nicely against the blue grey sky. The simple wooden houses in the snow belie the images conveyed by Hollywood of swanky saloons and dusty streets with tumbleweeds. Tfs!

    Hi Eleu,

    The red hides of the wild horses contrast well against the blue shadowed tints in the snow. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. I like the shadow play on the fg snow drift. Good textural and tonal details also that pick out the footprints of a bird or fox. Tfs!

    Hello Sven,

    Good sharpness and I like the framing through the fg sculpture which is reminiscent of the leaves of a pandanus palm. Excellent tonal range and a balanced well composed image. Good graphic elements of the darker spires of the cathedral against the lighter toned sky. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    Spotted this one in your gallery. I like the superb blue skylight reflections in the water and the good symmetry in the composition with the rows of yachts at both left and right . Good sharpness and nice repetition of the masts which add a graphic element against the lighter toned sky. Tfs!

    Hi, Satya,

    A good daily life scene from the local market with nice repetition of patterns shapes and colors. The bread looks fresh and delicious. Excellent shadow detail allowing us to catch sight of some of the vendors. The clothing market behind the bread also looks interesting. Tfs!

    Hello Satya,

    Nice capture of this peaceful rural scene with good repetition of the row of trees at right. They look like Australian eucalypts. Good sharpness and I like the long shadows being cast. The hazy bg blue mountains make a fine backdrop. Tfs!

    Hi Stephen,

    This guy with the orange sunnies looks like Joe Cool! Excellent use of a shallow dof with good fg sharpness. A superb daily life scene also. An image well worth capturing and sharing. Odd to see an outdoor non smoking sign. Usually they are indoors. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicolas

    A superb high pov and the mist add mood, atmosphere and an aura of mystery. I like the graphic element imparted by the silhouetted statue top left. Wonderful tonal and textural details in the fog. The 2 bands of land at the top are welcome additions. Tfs!

    Ciao Francesco

    The red hides of the cattle contrast superbly against the blue sky. I also like their repetition scattered across the fields. Good sharpness and the rocky treeless mountains in the bg make a superb backdrop. The lake adds a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre,

    I like the soft diffused light and the well managed interior low light levels. Good sharpness and the floral carpet and plain wooden floor go well together. The bg lamp provides some additional illumination. The partition has blocked harsh glare from the shielded window top left. Tfs!

    Smart girls are using the shade at left in mid summer. Good shadow detail and superb sharpness and color. Excellent lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point here. The blue sky contrasts well against the red tile roofs. Tfs!

    A lovely sunrise over the pier with wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the orange skies and blue tinted jetty and water. Good sharpness and nice repetition of patterns and shapes. The haze has acted as a natural filter to avoid the harsh glare and oe of the sun. Tfs!

    Hello JJ,

    Yes it definitely looks as though the owner loves yellow. The orange nasturtiums on the balcony add a welcome splash of color. The woodpiles tell us it gets cold here in winter and they have a fireplace. More of the lovely mosaics at far left. Tfs!

    Hi Sasha,

    A superb montage or collage of images relating to winter and snow. Each image compliments the others. Good sharpness and graphism. The bigger middle one is wonderful with the path adding good lead in lines and perspective. The blue and yellow houses shot at right is also great. Tfs!
