    Hello Ike

    The river castle is unusual. It looks like the newer v notch was constructed to repel floating logs and debris when the river is in high flood. Good sharpness and the bg vineyards make a fine backdrop. The secondary stone castle near the summit of the bg hill adds symmetry and a good 2nd focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen

    Who'd have thought you would find an Irish Pub in Bendigo! I like the classical French style turret atop the hotel. Good sharpness and excellent framing and composition. The angled pov showing both facades is superb. Excellent shadow detail on the right. The blue sky makes a wonderful backdrop. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicolas

    I like the textural and tonal details captured in the fg snow. Very good sharpness and excellent graphic elements offered by the 2 dark silhouetted trees against the lighter sky and snow. Well composed using the rule of thirds. I like the long side shadows from the right. Tfs!

    Hi Sasha,

    The silhouetted bg span of the modern suspension bridge adds a nice graphic element against the late evening sky. The yellow bus at left contrasts well against the blue hour tones in the sky. Superb sharpness and well framed and composed. A good choice of shutter speed that does not blur the moving traffic too much. Tfs!

    Merhaba Murat,

    The distinctive, verdigris, coppery green color of the gazebo is certainly eye-catching. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Good pp work on the sky with the halo only just visible after a closer look. I like the diffused light and the reflections in the wet pavement, which also has good textural details. Tfs!

    Hello Ghislaine,

    Effective tight framing with superb sharpness and vibrant color with strong warm vs cold colour contrasts between the hot yellow and pink colors of the attire at right hanging out to dry and the faint blueish tones of the clothing at left. The orange walls and red door also enhance the color contrasts by contrasting with the blue shadowed fg. Tfs!

    Salut Philippe,

    A good downward pov on the castle and moat. From this elevation and high vantage point it looks like scale model or lifelike toy. Superb sharpness & the green cyan color of the clear clean water is amazing. Good side-lighting from the right. The shadowed bg makes a good bg to the mainly sunlit fg castle. Tfs!

    Ciao Carlo

    Missed this one. I like the ornate pattern of the iron grill gate and their wavy flowery designs. The fg grate across the window adds depth and layering but does not obscure the bg view much at all. Good sharpness and realistic looking colour, with excellent saturation and framing. The yellow ochre edges of the circular window contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Alexander

    The bright sunlit street at right contrasts wel against the shadowed portion of the image at left. Good sharpness and it looks a little like Mesta on Chios Island. I like the view of the 4 bg arches in 2 layers, nicely framed by the big central arch in the fg. Good to include some blue sky. And the path at right also adds perspective and lead in lines. Tfs!

    Hi Danos

    This part of Greece I am not familiar with. But it looks nice nevertheless. A wonderful warm vs cold color contrast between the blue sea and sky and the yellow red colours of the headland bg island, and roofs at right. Superb sharpness and a marvellous high pov. The fg branches add depth and layering. Tfs!

    Hello Wolfgang

    Good sharpness and the juxtaposing of the more traditional religious paintings at right against the more avante garde 'golden' Jesus image at right with the childlike bg figures is certainly eye-catching. The low level light has been well managed with some auxiliary light coming through the window at top left. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio,

    The tall bg crumbling tower at the back with the scaffolding makes an immediate focal point rising above the uniform level dwellings of the remainder of the village. Good sharpness and natural looking colour. Nice repetition of the windows and red roofs. The blue facade at right nicely breaks the pattern. Tfs!

    Hi Wolfgang,

    The diagonal axis of the road adds dynamism and strengthens the composition. Good sharpness and excellent repetition of the cyclists all in white. Maybe they are going to a funeral? The vegetation looks lush tropical and very green. Exactly as I remember it. Good sidelight from the top left. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    A well composed image of the post earthquake remains of the ancient Roman amphitheater. Most of the arches have survived reasonably well despite the shaking the rest of the structure took. The flock of birds top right add interest. The blue sky is always a bonus. Excellent colour and saturation. Good density levels with strong lighting contrasts. Tfs!

    Hello Achim

    It looks lush and tropical. Good sharpness and the rusting red tractor in the fg and the red flowering trees in the bg contrast well against the blue cyan shadows. The dual wheel tracks on an angle add dynamism as well as superb lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. The 2 boys walking away towards the house animate the scene and the washing hanging out to dry on the rail adds interest. Tfs!

    Hello Serge,

    Amazing repetition of the boats in Genoa harbor with good sharpness and vibrant colour. The warm yellow ochre facades of the waterfront buildings contrast superbly against the reflected blue skylight in the water and the blue sky. I like the shadow play and dappled light on the fg boats. Tfs!

    Hello Miro,

    I have been there about 13 years ago. It is certainly worth seeing. Good sharpness and the yellow streaks in the dome contrast superbly against the blue sky. Well framed and composed. The refd brick wall at right enhances the warm cold color contrasts as does the red fabric above the eyes. Nice repetition of the colorful prayer flags. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    A simple little chapel and altar, with good management of the low interior light level. Excellent sharpness and the grey blue tile of marble floor in the fg contrasts well against the red seats and yellow gold altar. I might have cropped vertically from the left to remove the partial painting frame. Tfs!

    Hello Brian,

    It reminds me of a birthday cake with candles! Or a pincushion. The yellow cranes contrast well against the blue facades of the modern buildings at left and the blue sky. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. The little structure at right on pylons adds interest. The cable car looks like it would give a superb high point of view. Tfs!
