    Hello Abmdsudi,

    The woman at left in her red sari and carrying an orange sack on her head makes for a superb daily life scene from India. Good sharpness, color & saturation plus a nice warm cold color contrast against the blue wall at right. Tfs!

    Hi Murat,

    I like the curved lead in lines created by the wooden and brush constructions either side. Good sharpness and the exposed red earth provides a welcome splash of colour. Nice repetition of the vertical tree trunks. Tfs!

    Hello Piotr,

    You had fantastic weather which gave you a superb shot of the Trakai Castle with punchy light contrasts and nicely saturated colours. Good sharpness and pretty reflections in the fg lake. The bridge makes a fine lead in line. Tfs!

    Hi Brenda

    Good timing to get the three silhouetted figures at left who add a nice graphic element of contrasting tones. Excellent sharpness and the colourful sculpture makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Brenda

    I like the red and blue posters of the cassette at right resembling a wet photograph just hung out to dry after leaving the lab. Excellent sharpness throughout with good color and saturation. The Japanese have some of the safest cities in the world and no doubt have heard a lot of horror stories about the previous high crime levels, which have fallen off dramatically since the NYPD zero tolerance policy was introduced years ago. Tfs!

    A fantastic tropical sunset with the silhouetted coconut palms along the beach adding graphism to the scene. Good sharpness and lovely warm cold color contrasts between the orange and blue tones in the sky. Tfs!

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    It's not often we get to see a shot from the interior of a windmill so thanks for posting this. Good sharpness and the warm, monochromatic color tones resemble a sepia shot. Excellent sharpness and effective tight framing and composition. Tfs!

    Hi Paul

    Macron is not well liked by many ordinary French people and was only elected because he was the lesser of 2 evils. The jury is still out on Trump imho. He has a habit of doing the exact opposite of what he said he would do, and his government is built on a shaky foundation of a culture of lies. Not a great start to the Presidency. Anyway, punchy light contrasts and good sharpness on the fast moving hummingbirds. The red and blue colours provide striking warm cold colour contrasts. Tfs!

    A good profiled shot of the stylishly dressed ladies in their 3 layer dresses. Or are they ladies? We won't go there! Great sharpness & striking warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue. Tfs!

    Hello John,

    The wind turbine on the horizon makes a good focal point despite its small size. Good sharpness and the rustic wooden shack at right adds depth and layering to the composition. Good framing and composition. Tfs!

    Bonjour Christiane

    Let's hope this sunrise is symbolic of TE reinventing itself and rising phoenix-like from the slump we've all noticed in the past few years. Nice sharpness with fantastic warm cold colour contrasts. Tfs!

    Salut Christiane,

    I like the superb depth in this image and the layering of the pigeons and people in the fg & mid-ground add depth. Excellent sharpness and linear perspective with the dip in the pavement adding interest. Tfs!

    Hi Ryszard,

    A nice minimalist shot with good sharpness and a curious closed window structure at top left. I like the 3 converging triangles meeting at the top. Good tonal contrasts & framing. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    The rooster atop the spire adds charm and the colorful flower boxes add a welcome splash of color. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The fg bridge adds depth and layering and the 2 people provide scale. Tfs!

    Hello Gert,

    Until I scrolled down and saw the Arabic looking bas-relief text at the bottom I would have suggested a few steps to the right to separate the tree from the bg tower, but then that would cut the text in half. So you made the right decision framing this. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    Smart choice of a vertical format with good sharpness overall. The three central vertical poplar trees try hard to compete with the high rise building and almost succeed. Tfs!

    Hi Stephen,

    Effective tight framing on the half timbered dwelling with excellent color and sharpness. A pleasant diffused light and an interesting subject. The reddish brown door with its warm colours contrasts well with the cooler bluish hues. Tfs!

    Hi Daniel,

    Reminds me of some of the arcades I saw in Italy. Or the one in Bucharest a Romanian friend showed me. Good sharpness and well managed backlight. The catwalk forming a bridge makes an obvious focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio

    Excellent shadow detail despite the harsh backlight. The brilliant blue sky with its wispy clouds makes a marvellous backdrop to the clocktower. A good upward pov and well framed and composed. Tfs!
