    Hello Ruben,

    Fantastic symmetrical reflections in the mirror like water that resemble a watercolour painting with the soft pastel colours. Good sharpness and the red bridge at left adds lead in lines. Good depth and layering too. Tfs!

    Bonjour, mon ami Jean,

    Lol. Considering that there is only one trail, that is visible, the title is quite amusing. The sharpness is excellent and the 2 fish trap structures add a centre of interest. Tfs!

    Hello Carlo,

    Nice repetition of the cream posts and black ornately decorated rails at left, and the diagonal placement in the frame adds dynamism. The yellow at right and red roof at left contrast well with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hi Lars

    A good idea to invert the image and it resembles an abstract impressionist painting. The reflection of the building is superb. Good sharpness and nice colour and saturation. Nice repetition of the ripple patterns. Tfs!

    Hello Rob,

    The bright blood red Amor sign contrast well with the blue cyan shadows of the bg to give a superb warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and nice use of a shallow dof. The yellow & pink magenta colors add to the color palette. Tfs!

    Hello Noel,

    The pedestrian footbridge makes a fine focal point and the man and girl add scale and animate the shot. I am intrigued by what looks like a floating mountain peak poking up above the layer of fog. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe,

    The kneeling bearded man seems almost childlike in size compared to the much larger statue Good sharpness and excellent tight framing. The bars encasing the statues resemble prison bars. Tfs!

    Hello Rob,

    Good choice of a vertical format to accentuate the height of the stone plaque. The fg couple in opposing red and blue add a focal point. Excellent sharpness and the dark lamp post adds a graphic element. The ship in a bottle provides a centre of interest. Tfs!
