    Bonjour Gueguen

    The clear blue sky makes a superb backdrop to the pale honey yellow coloured church. Good sharpness and I like the lighting with the fg parked cars in shadow and the facade of the church brightly illuminated. Good saturation & the trees either side balance the composition and nicely frame the shot. Tfs!

    Merhaba Mesut,

    A superb profiled portrait of this old woman with a wonderful warm vs cold colour contrast between the red and gold head covering and the blue sky. Good use of a shallow dof yet with perfect sharpness on her eyes and face. The crows feet indentations around her eye add character. Tfs!

    Hello Jose

    A splendid high pov with good sharpness and vibrant colour and saturation. Nice repetition of the white parasols in the central piazza. I like the wonderful warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue sky and the red roofs. The row of houses at left add deep lead in lines and perspective along the adjacent street. Tfs!

    Hello Wolfgang,

    I would have straightened this and panned a little more upward to include breathing space around the head of the mermaid. Nice motion blur of the splashing water with good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. The bg paintings on sale add interest and authenticity to this superb daily life scene. Tfs!

    Merhaba Mesut,

    A superb head and shoulders portrait with good sharpness and excellent partially diffused lighting. Superb shadow detail and effective tight cropping. His black and white attire adds a nice graphic element. Perfect sharpness on the old mans face and eyes. Good bokeh and oof colors top right. The diagonal head covering or shawl adds dynamism. Tfs!

    Hello Malgorzata

    A superb daily life photo with the added bonus of the agitated looking fish monger! Good use of a shallow dof with excellent sharpness (no, not the knife) & good motion blur of the frenzied hand of the man holding the blurred fish knife. The fg red fish add a nice splash of colour. Tfs!

    Hello Paul

    The colorful facade of the small temple is eye catching amongst the uniform green and reddish pink Spring colours of the forested hillside. The diagonal slope of the hill adds dynamism. Excellent shadow detail and sharpness. Good aerial perspective top right. Tfs!

    Hello Paul

    I went and saw this in 2006 when I was living in adjacent South Korea. A Canadian peace activist was playing the old John Lennon song 'Imagine' when the Iraq war was still raging. A thought provoking post and the mirrored reflection is superb. I was struck by how indiscrimiante the carnage was. Schoolchildren, cats, dogs, horses and even the trees were all collateral damage. This must never happen again. Tfs!

    Hello Kasia,

    A superb nocturnal shot of the fountain with good sharpness and excellent graphism. Nice motion blur of the water jets & well composed using the rule of thirds. The illuminated bg wall adds a welcpme splash of colour to the shot. Good density levels also. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    The diagonal axis of the kayak adds dynamism. Nice reflections in the water with good sharpness and the facial expression on the rower is one of determination and endurance. The bright blue shirt stands out well against the softer pastel colours too. Tfs!

    Bonjour Jean Jacques,

    Effective tight framing with good sharpness and the flower boxes add a welcome splash of colour. Well composed using the rule of thirds. I like the alternating green and white window shutters. Merci!
