    Hello Rob,

    The railway tracks add deep lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Good sharpness and a splendid high pov. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    I like the high key tones and the superb sharpness. Well framed and composed with attractive soft pastel colors. The red chimney at right sets up a strong color contrast. Tfs!

    Hi Silvio,

    I like the reflection in the shiny stones of the piazza in front of the church. Such a huge pity about the earthquake damage and devastation but I am glad Norcia dodged a bullet.

    Hello Benny,

    Excellent graphism of contrasting dark and light tones with superb use of differential focus to isolate and emphasise selected areas of the image. The 3 fg Muslim girls are well framed too. Tfs!

    It looks like a b&w version of the old Led Zeppelin album cover for Physical Graffiti. Good sharpness and well spotted rule of thirds in both vertical and horizontal planes. Tfs!

    I like the repetition of the red pennant flags top left and they also contrast well against the blue sky. The street adds strong lead in lines and perspective. Tfs!

    It seems to have a red yellow color cast rather than oversaturation. I might try a workshop. Well composed with good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    The clump of exploding fireworks does indeed resemble a grove of palm trees either on a desert island or at an oasis in the Sahara. Good color and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Gert

    Lol at the juxtaposing of the ancient Viking image aboard the modern and less interesting super passenger liner. I caught one from Stockholm to Helsinki and Swedes were frantically buying as much duty free beer as they could! Good sharpness & graphism. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio,

    Such a tragic loss of both architectural gems and human lives. Good high pov and the clocktower makes a fine focal point in this image. Effective tight framing too. Let's hope the city is rebuilt sooner rather than later.

    Hello Ourania,

    I would have liked to have seen more of Rhodes as it is such a big island and Rhodes town and Lindos were all that I had time for. A nice daily life scene from a less visited part of the island. An informative historical note too. Tfs!

    Excellent use of a shallow dof with good sharpness and superb isolation of the subject of 3 boys from the oof bg. Good color and saturation. I like their distorted reflections in the tranquil pool of water below. Tfs!
