    Hi Francesco,

    A wonderful Italian landscape with the diagonals of the rows of vineyards adding dynamism. The red roofs contrast well against the blue sky to give a superb warm vs cold color contrast and are well positioned near the vanishing point. I like the curve at right breaking the repetitive patterns nicely. Tfs!

    Hello Miguel,

    It sort of resembles some of the Mosques in Turkey sans the minarets! Good control over perspective and the people add scale and context. The gold cupola looks great against the blue sky. Nice repetition of the arches columns and copper green domes. Perspective has been well managed. Tfs!

    Hi Lars,

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    Superlatives fail me! An astonishing image that would make a fine painting. The 3 sidelit peaks lift an already wojnderful sunset shot to a whole new higher level! Good sharpness and graphism. The blue green horizontal streak on the lower 1|3 axis enhances the color contrast. Tfs!

    Good lighting and graphism with the shadows accentuating the effect. The wide angled panoramic view of the old car suits the image. I think I got a Chevrolet in Copenhagen? Will uplad it when I get back to Poland. A good exposure on the highlights with nice sharpness. Tfs!
