    Hello Krzysztof,

    The curve of the bay provides strong lead in lines and the blue sky adds a splendid backdrop. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the moored boats in the harbor. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    What a cosy little wooden cottage amongst the tall trees of the forest. I like the warm cold color contrast between the red and blue. Good sharpness and tight framing. Tfs!

    Bonjour Jean

    The diagonal canal adds strong lead in lines and perspective as well as dynamism. Good sharpness and density levels that have given punchy light contrasts & excellent saturation. Merci!

    Hello Ike,

    This aqueduct reminds me of a similar one near Aspendos in south western Turkey, not far from Antalya. Good sharpness and the warm colour of the ancient stones contrasts well with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hi Craig,

    Well composed using the rule of thirds with excellent sharpness and a nice downward pov of the harbour from an elevated position. The solitary red roof stands out and contrasts well with the blue sea and sky. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    The tight framing works well here although some would prefer inclusion of the tops of the spires. Great reflections in the ornamental fountain with good sharpness. The perspective has been well managed with the verticals placed centrally. Tfs!

    Bonjour Denis,

    I am wondering if this might have been better shot at high tide? Anyway the sark sand and rocks add a graphic element to the lighter toned white houses. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the boats. Tfs!

    Hi Stephen

    Perspective has been well managed in this tricky shot with the absence of straight lines and elliptical curves instead. Good sharpness and framing. I might have boosted saturation. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio

    I am just glad you were not amongst the casualties. TE just wouldn't be the same without you. Like everyone I was saddened by the news and immediately worried about you. A real pity this cathedral no longer exists after the devastating earthquake yesterday but kudos to you for capturing it for posterity and perhaps it might be used as a guide when reconstructed? As always, good framing and sharpness. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    I might have added more shadows & / or contrast to compensate for the haze, but composition and pov are flawless. Good sharpness and the red brick walls contrast well with the blue sky to give a grand warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

    The three clumps of purple flowers add a nice splash of color to the old wooden house and the patch of blue sky top right adds a similar color tone. Good sharpness and an excellent note. Tfs!
