    hello Daniel

    A deep, rich blue sky. Wonderful density levels that have given perfect saturation and strong light contrasts. Crisp clean whites and solid blacks with good framing and composition. The iconic tip of the Eiffel Tower is instantly recognisable. I like the repetitive patterns of the windows. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe

    Good shadow detail and sharpness and the bg blue sky makes a fine backdrop. Excellent colour and saturation. The sidelight from the right has given nice long shadows of the trees. I like the dapple lighting and shadow play. The angled pov on the stone cottage showing 2 facades adds depth. Good graphism of the dark trees against the lighter sky. Tfs!

    Hi Burak,

    The relatively clear path at right adds excellent lead in lines and deep diminishing linear perspective. Lots of d and c cups at left in this undercover market! The man drinking tea adds authenticity. Good sharpness and colour. The red and white Turkish flag adds place and context. Good repetition of the fabrics and clothes at right. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    I went inside on my 2nd attempt. The first attempt failed as it was 5 pm prayer time. It's a magnificent building for sure both from the outside and also the interior. I like the long vertical bookmark format. The fg people add scale and context. Good symmetry of 2 of the 6 minarets visible here. Tfs!

    Hello Sasha,

    Effective tight framing with good density levels that have given excellent saturation and clean crisp whites with solid blacks in addition to punchy lighting contrasts. The v notch formed by the fg gate nicely points into the frame. The people add scale and context. The lamp post at right has been skilfully blended with the bg building. Tfs!

    Hello Piotr,

    I like the low shooting angle and the superb graphic elements of lighter tones contrasting against darker tones. Good sharpness And although the stylized sundeck chairs make a wonderful repetitive pattern throughout the square, I am sure they are not very comfortable to lie on. Good to include some of the bg buildings. Tfs!

    Hello Brenda,

    Surprisingly, I got it right from the clues in your note alone. A good extreme close up with very effective tight framing and the diagonals of the floors add dynamism. Good sharpness and wonderful repetition of patterns shapes and geometric designs such as the stylized eyes on the lower floor facades. Tfs!

    Hi Bulent

    The catwalk suspension bridge makes a fine focal point. Good sharpness and the man about to cross adds scale. i like the warm cold color contrast between the yellow green grass and the blue sea and sky. The diagonal axis of the path adds good dynamism. The fg oof blades of grass or branches add depth and layering. Tfs!

    Ciao Silvio,

    Effective tight framing on the hilltop village and the tightly clustered stone houses add interest. Very good sharpness and the haze adds mood and atmosphere. A splendid high vantage point overlooking the town. The trees and forest and greenery surrounding the village are nice. Tfs!

    Bonsoir Jean,

    The layer of fog hanging above the valley adds interest and mood, and the majestic snow-capped peaks make a stunning backdrop. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Excellent color and saturation. I like the sidelighting from the right. A good exposure on the bright highlights of the snow. Tfs!

    Salut Didi

    A good upward pov on the castle and good to include a small section of the river for contest. I'd imagine it functioned as a major maritime highway back in its day. Good reflections also with superb sharpness and tight framing. The yellow red facade of the castle stands quite well from the leafy greenery surrounding it. Tfs!

    Hello Ryszard

    Smart choice of a wide angled view format which emphasises the height of the central tower superbly. Good sharpness, color and saturation. The yellow facade of the building contrasts well against the blue grey sky. The people add life and scale and animate the scene. Tfs!

    nice the view of the place with the presentation of this section of the lake in this altitude.The small village of Korzok on the opposite side of the lake at the roots of the snowy Mts makes the image even more effective with the creative layers to make it absolutely dreamily.
