    Ciao Cara Lisa,

    A nice tribute. One of the Australian victims on MH17 was a relative of 2 passengers from Brisbane on flight MH370. Absolutely tragic. I love the repetition of the naturally occurring patterns and shapes in the eroded beach rock platform. A nice reflection with good sharpness and warm cold colour contrasts. Tfs!

    Hello Brian,

    Good tonal range with clean blacks and whites and nice repetition of geometric patterns and shapes, with good sharpness. The strong diagonal line adds dynamism and the sleek curves enhance the composition. Nice reflections to add to the effect. Tfs!

    Hello Bev,

    I wonder what archaeologists will make of this in 2000 years time? Was it a tumulus for a forgotten great Queen of England? An amusement park or some such. Fantastic greenery with agood upward pov. The people add scale. Tfs!

    Hi Burak,

    The solitary person certainly adds scale, to Niagara Falls in the bg. Good sharpness and partial silhouettes with the diagonal fence adding dynamism. The yellow green grass contrasts well against the blue grey sky. Tfs!

    Bonsoir Jean Jacques,

    Wonderful alternating facades of colour on the sides of the buildings. Good sharpness, saturation and density. The crowds of people along the narrow esplanade add scale and context. Nice repetition of the boats with some good reflections. Tfs!

    A fascinating subject that reminds me of the shipwrecks and Maritime Museum in Fremantle, Western Australia, although this is much much older than the the 17th & 18th centuries. The vessel depicted here on a diagonal angle adds perspective and makes a fine focal point amongst the stylised waves either side. Tfs!

    Hi Angel

    A superb street-scape and daily life scene from Germany. Good sharpness and density levels that have given clean whites and blacks. The red flowers add a welcome splash of color. Nice repetitive patterns in the cobblestone street. Tfs!

    Bonjour Didi,

    From the thumbnail it looked like you had been to Zanzibar or Egypt. The style of boats is similar. Good sharpness and nice impressionist reflections. A fine exposure on the white highlights of the sail, Bon semaine!

    Hi Nicou,

    I like the aerial perspective here and layering of tones from black in the fg to dark orange in the mid-ground then pale orange in the bg. Good use of the tree to filter the strong sunlight and it also had given good silhouettes. Tfs!

    Salut Nicolas,

    Good choice of a vertical frame to accentuate the meandering stream, with excellent sharpness and superb framing and colour saturation. I like the warm cold color contrast between the yellow green and blue grey. Tfs!

    Merhaba Deniz,

    Amazing repetition of the arch patterns with pinpoint sharpness as evidenced by the text at the top. Fine words, but Mussolini was a Fascist Dictator who aspired to none of the words in the text, but saw them merely as a Nationalistic propaganda tool to further his own ends. It ended badly for him. I like the curved crescent shapes within some of the arches. Tfs!

    Hello Serge,

    Fantastic warm cold color contrasts between the yellow rapeseed flowers and the blue sky. Good sharpness and perfect saturation levels. Excellent density too which has given clean whites and blacks. The dark bg trees add a graphic element. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre

    Smart choice of a vertical frame that accentuates the height of the altar. Good sharpness and colour with excellent saturation. I might have left a little more breathing space at the top above the cross. I like the diffused light. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nino,

    I like the fg curvature of the beach and the repetition of the deck chairs. The bg thunderstorm top right looks ominous. Good sharpness and realistic looking colour and saturation. I like the turquoise colour of the sea and the bathers add scale and context. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    Missed this one. I like the unusual statue at the top of the building. The ornate detail and sharpness are superb! Good colour and saturation. Nice warm cold colour contrasts between the red and blue. The big arch at right adds interest and a focal point. Tfs!

    The blue purple flowers of the jacaranda tree and the blue cyan windows at left contrast superbly against the yellow flowers in the circular garden bed. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. Excellent graphism and tight framing. Tfs!

    Good colour saturation with nice reflections and with the water jet fountain at right providing a fine focal point and centre of interest. The red roofs contrast well against the blue sky to give a nice warm cold colour contrast. Tfs!

    Hello Brian,

    Nice to see the more modern architecture breaking away from the traditional old black white and grey color scheme. A superb reflection of the building at right within the glass facade of the building at left, with vibrant colour and good saturation. Tfs!
