    Hello Gildas,

    Looks a little like a still life painting. Effective tight framing with impeccable sharpness and good color. Those teeth look sharp! Looks like a fine choice of pescatorean fare for fish head soup! Tfs.

    Bonsoir, cher Gildas,

    The fg apple tree adds depth as well as a spalsh of red here and there within the tree full of ripening fruit. The red contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and saturation with a fine view of the harbour beyond. Tfs.

    Hi Ike,

    A superb city sunset with good sharpness and saturation. The partially silhouetted highrise buildings provide a wonderful graphic element. Good repetition of patterns and shapes. The ever present cranes strongly suggest more buildings are going up. Tfs.

    Hi Stephen,

    I like the missing door panel bottom right allowing a glimpse beyond of the orange red terracotta potplant. Good sharpness and the street looks similar to Naples in southern Italy. Excellent pastel colors and saturation. Tfs.

    Hi Miguel

    A superb elevated high pov overlooking the harbor and offering an expansive view. Good sharpness and excellent depth. I was going to say it looks similar to Sydney Harbour, as I thought it was in Portugal. Then I looked at the title and the penny dropped! The diagonal axis of the city tower blocks adds dynamism. Tfs.

    Ciao Silvio!

    The yellow sunlit castle walls contrast superbly against the deep blue black sky. Good color and saturation with excellent sharpness. Nice repetition of the poplar trees. It appears to be a windy day with some slight motion blur. Tfs.

    Bonjour Philippe

    Nice repetition of the geese across the fg part of the frame, with a luxuriant cover of green grass. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. Good graphic elements with the partially silhouetted trees against the sunlit fg. The blue sky makes a nice backdrop. Tfs.

    Hello Serge

    I like the slightly oof extreme fg sharpening as the eye progresses into the image. Good perspective and lead in lines with the rows of vineyards. Excellent repetition of patterns and shapes. The bg blue sky contrasts well against the yellow green vegetation. Tfs.

    Bonjour Pierre,

    The fg yellow flowers contrast well against the bg blue sky. Good sharpness and the diagonal axis of the road gives dynamism. Perspective has been well managed placing the verticals centrally. I like the angled pov showing 2 facades and the superb shadow detail. Tfs.

    Hello Alexandre,

    The pale yellow red sand of the bg dune contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the fg boat counterbalances the distant boat at right up close to the dune. The muddy reddish brown color of the river accentuates the warm cold color contrast. Tfs.

    Hi Jean,

    Ah yes, I see it. Good diffused light and maximum shadow detail as a compensatory bonus for the overcast skies. It's possible to add a fake blue sky in photoshop, but you need to be careful of reflections. Grey reflections of a blue sky give the game away! Tfs.

    Bonjour Aleksander,

    A splendid high and elevated pov with vibrant colour and nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue skylight reflected in the water and the red roof. There is a similar bridge at Middle Harbour in Sydney. Tfs.

    Ola Ana,

    Punchy light contrasts and the red roof at left contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and perspective has been well managed. The yellow streak at the bottom of the building enhances the effect. The cp has done its job admirably. Tfs.

    Hello Bev,

    Missed this one. The serene Chinese garden has been well captured. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The characteristic bright red painted buildings are typically Chinese. The design appears to be a fusion of several styles. The weirdly shaped limestone rocks buttressing many Chinese gardens are missing here. Tfs.

    Hello Malgo,

    After travelling all day from Florence I arrived in Pisa right on blue hour and took advantage of it. The 4 very distinctive buildings, or perhaps 3, and their yellow red illumination, contrast well against the blue sky. Reasonably good sharpness in the fg getting better towards the back. Tfs.

    Hi Ike

    Nice deep blue skylight reflections in the Yarkon River which contrast superbly against the yellow shirt worn by one of the rowers. A similar scene could be spotted on the Yarra River in Melbourne. Well composed using the rule of thirds with reasonable sharpness. Tfs.

    Hello Bev,

    The Doric style columns at the left entrance hint at neoclassical Greco Roman design. The people add scale and animate the scene. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light with the flowers adding a welcome splash of colour. The red brick chimneys contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs.
