    Salut Didi!
    Bonne compo à trois étages/ Toits, voiliers, maisons.... la lumière est bonne ainsi que la qualité générale. La plaisance a l'air de bien se porter, malgré la crise! ;D

    Hi Gert
    A typical scene... I remember the teas there, sabz (green) or black, with small sweets if one wants sugar... Maimana was quite remote at the time, on the NW route from Herat to Mazar-e-Sharif which not many foreigners were using....
    Excellent catch!

    Ciao Luciano
    The general quality (colour, contrast and sharpness) is excellent, and the landscape is also well presnted and the picture well composed. The place looks nice and rather quiet, without too many people!

    Hi Paul

    I like the procession of uniformly dressed hikers marching like ants across the bg trail. The fg cave has been used to good effect to frame the entire scene, which is pinsharp and has superb colour and saturation. Nice warm cold color contrasts also at the top between the reddish orange rock and blue grey shadows. Tfs!

    Bonjour Didi,

    At first glance it looks like lens barrel distortion from a 16 mm fish eye lens was warped the canal walls but no, on closer inspection and reading the view note of 21 mm, this is incorrect. Well composed and the boat and its reflection make a fine centre of interest. Tfs!

    Hi Will,

    The perfect density levels have given clean crisp whites and blacks and good colour saturation. A superb upward pov with good sharpness and well managed wide angled perspective, with the verticals positioned just right of centre. The moon is a nice addition. Tfs!

    Hello Asa,

    Interesting to see another Troy. I visited the original last year and after all the hype what a huge disappointment it was and how little there was to see, I still managed to find it way better than expected. It was actually a Greek city state in Turkey. Here I like the red brick fountain side contrasting against the blue sky. Lynard Skynard were correct! The statue of the warrior is nicely framed by the plumes of water and I like the upward pov. Tfs!

    Salut Pierre

    From the thumbnail I thought this looked familiar and I was not mistaken as I spent 3 days in Lindos last May. And of corse this is at the entrance to the stairs leading up to the Acropolis. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Excellent shadow detail on the carved boat in the rockface. Tfs!

    Hello Satya,

    A lovely clear blue sky backdrop with good sharpness and nice fg reflections in the water. Excellent repetition of the whitewashed stupas which remind me of Kathmandu in Nepal. The people add life and scale. The red flags contrast superbly against the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen

    Not just the UK but across Europe and Australia too Ferris wheels are currently enjoying a renaissance in popularity after being in vogue in the 70's and becoming less popular in the 80's and 90's. http://thewheelofbrisbane.com.au/ I saw yet another in Brighton. This one in Liverpool fills a vacant space between 2 high rise flats. The fg river makes a nice fg layer. Tfs!

    Hello Luciano

    Stunning warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and the reddish orange facade of the church, as well as the lemon yellow fg buildngs, with excellent sharpness and saturation. I like the upward pov and the diagonal fg road provides good lead in lines. Tfs!

    Bonjour John

    The boat makes a fine focal point and the dual sides of the canal provide lead in lines and perspective. Well composed with the sides of the canal starting in or near the corners. The orange red posts and boxes at right contrast well against the blue grey sky. Tfs!

    Hello Ike.

    Perspective has been well managed and the diffused light has provided maximum shadow detail. Good colour and saturation. The curved side of the display unit provides good lead in lines towards the bg crowd. The columns resemble mushroom stalks! Tfs!
