    Hi Lars

    I only spent an hour in Brighton in 2013 and remember the great donuts and Indian style Royal Pavilion plus this pier. I had a bus back to London for a connecting trip to Amsterdam at 9:30 pm so regrettably I could not stay longer. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen,

    Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the red flowers and the bg blue section of the wall. Good symmetry with the 2 trees either side nicely framing the courtyard. Excellent sharpness and repetition of the fg tile patterns. Tfs!

    Hello Luciano,

    Perfect density levels with good sharpness and the dual sides of the stream add natural perspective. I also would not have noticed the swan's nest without the note. Great that they have moved in. Lets hope that there are no stray cats to annoy them. TFs!

    Hello Malgo,

    Reminds me a little of the Goodwill Bridge in Brisbane

    Fantastic mirror like reflections with perfect density levels and splendid sharpness. I like the upward pov on the bridge. Tfs!

    Hi Noel,

    Marvellous warm cold color contrasts between the blue and orange tints in the sky, with superb sharpness & natural looking color and saturation. I like the partly silhouetted abbey or minster in the fg. Tfs!

    Hello Rob,

    Lol! In the 1920's anything that wasn't neck to knee was considered risque. Even for men! Remember that the bikini was still just a distant idea in the future. Nice that they kept this retro area so we can reminisce about the good old days! Even today, many beach-goers in the States are somewhat prudish compared to Europe and Australia. Tfs!

    Dag Benny,

    The vignetting adds mood to the shot and the strong diagonal of the stream provides dynamism. I also like the motion blurred water and the tonal contrasts between the brighter stream & darker surrounding forest and banks of the stream. Plus the warm cold color contrast between the blue grey water and yellow green backdrop. Tfs!

    Fantastic symmetrical reflections in the mirror like waters of the canal. Good sharpness and perspective with the bridge nicely placed near the vp. The red brick houses at left contrast well with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Oi Ricardo,

    Looks similar to some of the extinct volcano calderas scattered around Auckland in New Zealand. Aptly titled with the solitary tree surrounded by grass.

    Bonjour Christiane,

    I wonder if 'guaranty' is the US spelling, or just a crazy mistake, lol. Word check isn't underlining it in red so I guess that is how they spell it. The reflection in the mirror makes a fine focal point. Good sharpness and upward pov. Tfs!

    The imposing Doric style columns at the entrance at right add an air of grandeur. Good sharpness and perspective has been well managed. The warm milk chocolate reddish brown color of the building contrasts well with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    The leafy green vines in the fg add superb depth & layering to the composition as well as a partial frame. A nice blue sky and a superb contrasted light. Impeccable sharpness and angled hill at left acts as a ramp leading up to the castle. Tfs!

    The man on the bicycle adds a focal point and animates the scene. Good sharpness and the dual sides of the curving street add good lead in lines and perspective. I like the square format too. Tfs!

    Lovely Autumn tints of yellow red and brown in the trees with a splendid high pov and impeccable sharpness. The clocktower at right and the steeple at left frame the monument well. Are there stairs to the top? Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    Good to include the waves breaking on the beach in the bottom left corner. Excellent sharpness and the hole in the rock is clearly visible. The sea stack at far right suggests an earlier arch now collapsed. Tfs!
