    Hi Jean

    Astonishing warm cold color contrasts between the yellow and blue with good sharpness and composition. I like the reversed 's' shaped road at right and the lone vehicle. Tfs!

    Hi Craig

    This brings back nice memories of my short stay in Vancouver in 2008 and I remember this view. Nice repetition of the boats and skyscrapers with good sharpness and superb reflections. The minimalist color and wide angled crop work well. Tfs!

    Merhaba Murat,

    Although Australia never declared war on the UK, there were tensions on the goldfields of Ballarat with miners protesting the exorbitant miner's tax charged by the British. The Eureka Stockade has become a powerful symbol of nationalism. The equally nationalistic wagon wheel memorial to the D.A.R. looks a little like a ship's steering wheel. Good graphic elements and sharpness. Tfs!

    A nice contrast between the functional big freighter and the small fishing boat in the fg. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. Tfs!

    Hello Mesut,

    And not just any camel but a 2 humped Bactrian camel like the ones they have in Mongolia. The odd geological formation does indeed resemble a camel from this angle. Good sharpness & an excellent pov. Tfs!

    Hi Luciano

    It is indeed a bee-eater. We have similar birds in Australia. I like the repetitive patterns formed by the pigweed and the contrasting color tints between green and red. Tfs!

    Ciao Silvio,

    The red window shutters of the abandoned village house contrast well with the blue sky. The fg path adds lead in lines and perspective. The snow capped peaks at right add interest. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe,

    Good sharpness and nice repetition of the squares in the dilapidated and weathered old gate. The diagonal axis adds dynamism. I like the subtle Autumn tints starting to appear in the bg vegetation. Tfs!

    The warm colors of the little boomerang shaped island contrast wonderfully with the deep blue cobalt colours of the Aegean. Good sharpness and a well composed minimalist shot. Tfs!

    Salut Gildas,

    The yellow mustard or rapeseed plants contrast wonderfully against the blue and grey sky to give a marvellous warm cold color contrast. The effect is enhanced by the red post. Tfs!

    A superb seascape with an excellent downward pov. The yellow green succulent pigweed adds a warm cold color contrast with the blue sea. The u shaped gap enhances the compo. Tfs!

    Hello Carlo,

    Striking warm vs cold color contrasts in this sublime sunset and so glad you were able to stop despite the lack of a parking space. The orange and blue tones especially provide wonderful contrasts. Tfs!

    Bonjour, mon ami Philippe,

    A nice capture of the 2 pigeons resting high in the branches of the trees heavy with the fresh green buds of Spring. Good sharpness and excellent placement of the birds of the vertical and horizontal 1/3 axis points in the composition. Tfs!

    The snowy white clouds resemble snowcapped mountain peaks but not much chance of that in Florida which has very few mountains. Good sharpness and a marvellous window view from the plane. Tfs!

    Missed this one. The blue and white frame suits the subject matter, which is also predominantly blue and white. Good sharpness and the distant multi spanned bridge makes a good focal point. Tfs!

    Bonjour Cricri,

    I like the white dog at left and the yellow foliage contrasts well with the grey blue skies. The road adds deep lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vp. The segmented concrete road provides repetitive patterns. Tfs!

    The flowers add a splash of color to the old stone fountain. Good sharpness and smart choice of a vertical format to accentuate the height of the church. Tfs!

    Hello Cricri,

    There are 3 situations where I would never approach the edge of a cliff: 1. If the surface is cracked or crumbling or undercut. 2. If it's really windy. 3. If it's a ledge and there is no room to turn around or there are overhanging ceilings of rock where you have to squat hunchbacked to use the path. The guy in the red shirt has a great view but I just hope the rock is solid. Tfs!
