    Hello Ann,

    It looks like fusion of 2 images, one b&w and the other pastel colours. Apart from the fence and the red facade of the bg barn, there is an almost complete lack of colour! Vry effective and it evokes mood. I like the textural & tonal nuances in light in the bg snowcapped peaks. Tfs!

    Hi Nicole,

    You could just about close your eyes, point the camera and shoot, and you would still get a good shot in Venice, as it really is that photogenic! The curving canal adds fine lead in lines and perspective. The people on the narrow lanes either side animate the scene. Tfs!

    Hello dwaipayan,

    I've also seen these piles of stones with coloured flags in Mongolia. A superb shot of this high mountain pass with good sharpness and a nice warm cold color contrast between the yellow red rocks in the fg and the blue grey tints in the bg snow. Tfs!

    Hello Swapan

    Strangely enough it looks like rural Turkey around Eskisehir to Afyon stretch of road. The bright yellow canola, rapeseed or mustard (I can't tell them apart) contrasts well against the hazy blue grey bg top right. The sheep and herdsmen and woman cultivating the fields, animate the scene. Tfs!

    Hello Georg,

    A superb Austrian landscape with good sharpness and splendid symmetrical reflections in the water. The orange red walls of the lakeside shack at left contrast superbly against the blue sky. The craggy peak top left makes a great focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Neyvan,

    I spent a few days there last September but again I missed the blue sky depicted here. Nice reflections and good sharpness. Excellent repetition of the boats. Did you go inside the fisherman's museum? Tfs!

    Good textural and tonal details in the craggy jagged rocky ridges at right. Their dull grey color contrasts strongly against the yellow hues in the valley below. The mountaineers animate the shot and provide scale and context. Punchy light contrasts and the man in full sunlight and red jacket steals the show. Tfs!

    Hello Luciano

    Effective tight framing with no part of the image wasted. The blue truck propped on wood blocks for repairs & maintenance on the tires is a good focal point. Nice colors of orange and green on the wall which contrast well against the blue grey fg and truck. Tfs!

    Bonjour Miguel,

    Effective tight framing on the giant prayer wheels from Nepal, with good sharpness and shadow detail. I like the warm gold and red colors. The dark shadowed part at left is graphically positioned against the strong backlight. Tfs!

    Hi Paul

    I like the profiled white walled village receding down the inclined hillside towards the left. Good sharpness and nice textural details in the terraced and eroded fg hill. The fog adds mood and parts in just the right spot for a majestic view of the snowcapped bg peak. Tfs!

    Hi Gerrit!

    It looks like there is a little smoke haze on the horizon. I hope the volcanic crater is not about to erupt! A fantastic gh pov overlooking the placid lake. Backlight has been well managed. I like the graphism of the silhouetted tree at left standing out against the much lighter tones of the water. Tfs!

    Hi Ike,

    I remember seeing this last year when I visited Florence. A fine upward pov with good sharpness and punchy light contrasts yet still with good shadow detail. I like the 4 statues standing in the arched windows. The receding perspective tapering off towards the sky makes for an interesting shot. Tfs!

    A lovely reflection at left of the yellow and green trees in the blue water. This gives an excellent warm cold color contrast. Good symmetry of the bg reflections too. Superb sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs!

    I like the long shadows emanating from the right. Good interior lighting with excellent sharpness. Superb shadow detail under a pleasant diffused light. The chandelier makes a fine focal point. I like the angled pov. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge

    For a moment I thought this was Trevi Fountain but then I remembered the fountain pool is much, much larger. The statuary is similar though. Good exposure on the white marble and excellent sharpness and framing with a marvellous blue sky backdrop. Tfs!

    Hi Neyvan,

    This German based cruise ship has adopted the Verdi Opera 'Aida' as its namesake and even has an ancient Egyptian eye painted on the prow of the ship! Good high pov. There were a couple of massive cruise ships docked in Geiranger Fjord of similar size and also in Alesund. Might upload them both one day. Good high pov and excellent density levels. Tfs!

    Dear Elaine
    Its interesting that all your subjects are wearing hats (except one...she must have kept it inside the house)...the girls have some feathers adorning the hats...is it a kind of a custom to wear hats here?

    From her face & colour, I see a strong similarity with Indian girls her age...what of course if very different is the design across her face...its freshly painted, not a tattoo. Very interesting explanation in your thread with Andy

    Hello Brian,

    A spectacular Grand Canyon View all the more appreciated because I've been there. Flawless sharpness and superb warm cold color contrasts between the red earth and the blue sky. A geologists dream come true I am sure! Tfs!
