    Salut Jean Jacques

    A good close up, detailed shot, of the wooden roof of the church. I can count each tile! It would be too far away in a wider angled shot to pick out such detail, and you'd lose the balance of the 2 dark trees framing it, if you had gone for a vertical frame as suggested in another critique. You made the right choice here. Merci!

    Hello Murat,

    A superb warm cold color contrast between the red wooden planking of the fg boat and the blue grey rope & bg sky. Good use of a shallow dof with pinpoint sharpness in the fg. The diagonal axis of the wooden planks adds dynamism. Tfs!

    Hello Eleu,

    Ferris wheels were around when I was a kid in the late 60's and early 70's but in the last 10 years or so they have become popular again all over the world. Including the superb shot depicted here in Las Vegas. The moon overlapped by the cars makes the shot.

    Hello Pierre,

    I like the layered, wedding cake appearance of this unusual geological formation in the US south west. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red grass and rock and the blue grey sky. The horizontal strip of green adds depth & variety to the composition. Tfs!

    The red shopping bag sets up a superb warm cold color contrast against the blue jeans. Good interior shot with excellent sharpness & diffused light. Colour balance is spot on as evidenced by the perfect grey tiles. Tfs!

    We see centuries of structures in this picture...The domes balance each other well. The forum creates a good FG. Very nice picture!

    Hello Danos
    Excellent shot...the exposure is perfect! The Hotel building tilts in a interesting manner obviously because of the soft ground & gradual erosion by the stream. A glimpse of the late blue hour sky in the far BG ads a lot to the picture

    Hello John,
    moving backwards, I've reached halfway your long career on TE and the point where you decided to post only a picture a week:) For your anniversary you had chosen a photo that's both elegant and spectacular, with fine perspectives and symmetry, lovely architecture, very agreeable light and human presence. The light and the colours have a wonderful mildness and the buzzing setting on the ground looks neat and peaceful. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely day,
    Ourania

    Hello Chris,
    good use of the polarising filter to bring out the colours of that lovely sky,it makes a perfect backdrop for the very impressive stone walls and arches.
    Crisp and clear it`s a cracking shot.

    Ciao Luciano

    I was going to say this looks like the interior of a mosque. That's because it is! Fortunately non Muslims are allowed inside if they follow a few reasonable rules, unlike Malaysia and some other countries. Good upward pov, excellent sharpness and nice repetition of the bg windows. Tfs!

    Guten Tag Wolfgang,

    This brings back sweet memories of the Turkish and Greek Mediterranean coasts. The incredible blue cyan turquoise colours and unpolluted clarity are just wonderful. The lone yacht makes a fine focal point. I might have cropped some sky to conform to the golden mean 1/3 ratio. Tfs!

    Hello Edward,
    this is certainly a very different view to the previous upload showing as it does the ravages of time, here in the UK we too have old buildings desperately in need of restoration,I guess that it`s another consequence of the financial situation.

    Hello Stephen,
    a very attractive building, the clear and solemn symmetrical lines are gracefully combined with elaborate decorative patterns. I like very much the perspective you chose to include the greater part of the façade and offer us close look at the details. The blue sky is a delightful, contrasting area. There's excellent clarity, in spite of the strong light that affects the colour contrasts. Congratulations and thank you!
    All the best, have a lovely day,

    Hello Bev,

    Nice reflections in the stone fountain with plenty of breathing space right around in this well composed shot. Excellent sharpness and perspective has been well managed. Good dynamism also with the dual sides of the walking path and the hedges at left. Tfs!

    Hello Resat,

    I saw a few of these impressive Russian churches in the far east between Irkutsk and Vladivostok and good to see another here in the west. Good sharpness and nice warm cold color contrasts. Smart choice of a vertical frame. Tfs!

    what a spectacular view,the people below appear tiny!
    I rather like the couple at the edge of the frame looking into the scene,they also add a sense of scale and human interest.

    Hello Trevor,
    I do like the connection between the Puffins as they appear to be coying up to each other,so much nicer when they are doing something!
    You have captured this pair in a lovely light with nice clear details and natural colours that also illustrates their environment,it`s a cracking piece of wildlife photography.
    All the best Les.
