    Hello Bev,

    The yellow flowers and the reddish pink blouse contrast well with the blue sky to give a great warm cold colour contrast. Excellent sharpness and the ruined castle in the bg provides a fine centre of interest. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    This resembles a transplant from rural England or France. Good sharpness and well composed using the rule of thirds. Nice warm cold color contrasts too. Tfs!

    Hi Pavle,

    Nice repetition of the roof tile patterns and a good inclusion of the bird perched on the chimney at left. The red roof contrasts well with the blue sky. A good minimalist shot. Tfs!

    Hello Danos,

    These yellow dogwood bushes were always the first to flower in South Korea, a week or 2 before the cherry blossom made an appearance. It looks great here too with the pale blue sky as a backdrop. Excellent sharpness too. Tfs!

    Hello Ourania,

    I love the clarity of the water here. You can virtually count the stones on the sea floor if you're so inclined! The boat makes a good focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Luis,

    Nice to have a pov that includes the castle. It cannot be seen closer to the town centre or from my hotel which is about 1 km at right. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the boats. Tfs!

    Ciao Luciano,

    Certainly a huge statue and the people at right add scale. As do the floodlights. I will google what it looks like at night. Excellent sharpness and graphism. Tfs!

    The tricky light contrasts have been well managed. There are still plenty of discernible shadow details. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    Bonjour Christiane

    A lot of Americans I have spoken with who live in the eastern part of the country remarked that in their opinion I had seen the best of the US by sticking with the south west, and from this photo it is hard to argue the point. The mesa and ranch make dual focal points. Tfs!

    The fg carpet of orange and yellow poppies makes a nice border and contrasts superbly with the bg grey blue cloudy sky. The quaint arched bridge makes a fine focal point. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    A marvellous blue sky backdrop to set off the white snowcapped peaks. Good sharpness and the green forests below the snowline add to the colour palette. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    The magenta attics at top left contrast well with the blue sky to give a fantastic warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and the tree overhanging the canal makes a good focal point. Tfs!

    Hallo Rob,

    The aircraft is a fantastic focal point in this superb sunset shot. Good sharpness and wonderful saturated warm colors of orange and yellow. The people taking photos add a secondary pov and the silhouettes and graphism are superb. Tfs!

    Hello Philippe,

    The yellow flowers at right contrast well with the blue sky above to give a pleasing warm vs cold colour contrast. Good sharpness too. I might have left a little breathing space above the cross atop the church. Tfs!

    Salut Neyvan,

    The pier adds long deep lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vp. I like the patches of sunlight in the water at left and on the hillside at right. Tfs!

    Although not the biggest in Europe, this sand dune is none the less impressive. The highest are in Lithuania. For a moment I thought you had been to Algeria or Morocco! Tfs!

    Hi Ike,

    If you like street art, Bulgaria is a very fertile hunting ground with some talented artists. Bright bold colors and extraordinary contrast in colors and light. Good sharpness too. The dull grey bg helps a lot for the painting to stand out. Tfs!

    The big apple, within the the Big Apple! The glass atrium cover over the subway adds interest. Good sharpness and a nice contrast in architectural styles between the old in the back and the new at left. Tfs!

    Good use of a shallow dof to put the emphasis on the distant sailing ship with its distinctive red sails. The fg branches add depth & layering. Tfs!

    Hi Paul

    It resembles a giant breaking green wave along a beach. Good repetition of the orange flowers and the people add scale & animate the scene. The man at right taking a phone shot adds a focal point. Tfs!
