    Hallo Wolfgang

    A nice minimalist shot of just the 2 boats with a backdrop of sea and sky. Good density levels which have given clean whites and blacks with puncky light contrasts and perfect color saturation. Have a nice weekend!

    Hello Malgorzata

    Perhaps a little oversharpened, and maybe I would have boosted saturation a bit but I still like this a lot. A nice downward pov devoid of annoying tourist crowds, with lots of mood. The snowcapped mountains in the bg make a good backdrop. I might try a quick workshop. Tfs!

    Hello Angel,

    I like the upward pov and repetition of the stairs and the spherical, manicured topiary trees. Good sharpness and a wonderful blue sky backdrop. Excellent density levels and punchy light contrasts. Have a great weekend!

    Howdy Eleu,

    Fantastic graphism and a superb decisive moment shot. Another second or 2 and the shot was gone. I like the layering into g=horizontal thirds. The water droplets add authenticity. Good sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    Might get to see thius in person! The Diet of Worms has always amused and intrigued me during high school history lessons. Good sharpness and density levels. The pinkish hued architecture contrasts well against the blue sky. Have a safe weekend!

    Bonjour Serge,

    The yellow green leaves contrast well against the navy blue evening sky. Good sharpness and the profiled statue looks a little like Popeye! Nice repetition of the silver leaves sculpture. Good graphism. Bon weekend!

    Bonjour John

    Nice reflections in the rectangular ornamental pool with good warm cold colour contrasts between the mottled blue grey sky and the salmon pink brick walls of the imposing old building. The people add scale. The fg statues add depth and an elegant touch. Tfs!

    Hello Ike.

    Almost missed this one. The critiques are coming in faster than I can add mine, so it kept slipping down the page of my list. But I found it again and it is a nice semi abstract shot of the yacht and its reflections. Good density levels and graphism. The blue and white colours go well together. Tfs!

    Hi Brian

    A striking warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue sky and pink wall panels. Good sharpness & framing with excellent saturation and color. I like the contrast between the horizontal lines in the fg building and the vertical stripes in the bg building. Tfs!

    Hello Rosemary,

    The thumbnail does not do this justice. Upon opening the big picture the wonderful texture of the cracked saltpan or mud becomes readily apparent. Marvellous warm cold colour contrasts between the red sand and blue sky with good sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

    Salut Jean,

    I like the reflections in the wet sand and the reflected blue skylight contrasts superbly against the yellow red sand. The sunbather and the bg yacht make a good focal points. Excellent sharpness and shadow detail. The eroded headland profile resembles a lioness watching the shore. Tfs!

    Salut JJ,

    Another good view of the speeding rally car and its trail oif dust and exhaust fumes, this time from a rear view angle. Good sharpness, framing and colour saturation. The bg crowd add scale and context. The V shaped road adds to the composition by leading the eye around the image. Merci et bon weekend!

    Missed this when I was in Venice last year so tfs. The romantically entwined lampposts are unusual and well captured. Good sharpness and framing with the bg Venetian masks store adding context. Bon weekend!

    Again I regret not going to Sedona and Antelope Canyon when I visited Arizona. The red rocky outcrop contrasts superbly against the pale grey blue sky. Good sharpness and framing. I might have added more shadows and saturation but that's a personal taste. Tfs!

    Missed this one. Perspective with the wide angled lens has been well managed with the verticals centrally placed. Good sharpness and colour saturation. The pink facade and red walled building at left contrast well against the blue grey sky. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo

    Good use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point and smart use of a wide angled view. The people add scale and enliven the scene. A marvellous blue sky backdrop, and nice graphic repetition of the patterns formed by the shadows in the pergola. Tfs!

    Excellent upward pov on the tent canopy with superb use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. I like the warm vs cold colour contrast between the yellow walls & trim against the blue sky. The people animate the scene. Good shadow detail. Tfs!

    Hello Asa,

    Adequate sharpness (I would have added a bit more sharpness) with nice color contrasts between the blue sky and yellow green grass along with the red walled building at right. The circular bg stone castle makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Salut Neyvan,

    Looks a little like the view from Maleny in south east Queensland, Australia. A superb high pov with good sharpness and textural details in the rolling hills. Backlight has been well managed. I like the receding tones from the aerial perspective. Tfs!
