    Ciao Pierre,

    The difference in both light contrasts and colour saturation is readily apparent when critiquing an image from Newfoundland and then to a tropical locale such as this. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the patterns formed in the pavement with the rectangles. The red and white hurdles at the end add interest. Tfs!

    Ciao Luciano

    I like the distorted angles and the reflection in the glass facades. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. The blue sky and white colours of the building go well together and the 45 degree tilt adds dynamism. The al fresco diners provide interest along with the man holding a cellphone as he walks along the street. Tfs.

    Bonjour Denis,

    Striking warm cold colour contrasts between the bright red salmon pink and honeycomb yellow facades of the buildings at right against the blue sky. Good sharpness and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point at the 2 white cars. The people add scale and animate the scene. Tfs.

    Hello Bev,

    Missed this one. The picturesque walking track looks to be in fair condition with proper stone steps and not just a rutted, eroded incline like some walking tracks in Australia. Good sharpness and the reddish brown dried vegetation sets up a superb warm cold colour contrast against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hello Francesco,

    A superb backlight that makes the Autumn leaves appear to glow and be translucent. Good sharpness and the dual spans of the old stone bridge attract attention. The fast flowing Tiber River looks more turbulent than I would have imagined. The arch at right nicely frames the lamppost. Tfs.

    Hi Mesut,

    Looks a little like Afrodisias theatre. Good sharpness and great that most of it has survived relatively intact over the centuries. I hope that what is happening in Iraq with Isis never happens in Turkey. It would be criminal. I guess this was the entertainment complex of its day. Good sharpness and natural looking colour. Tfs. Edit. It just dawned on me that this IS Aphrodisias! I checked another image and sure enough it is. The museum there was great. http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Middle_East/Turkey/Aegean/Aydin/Aphrodisias/photo408195.htm

    Hello Roger,

    Have not seen one of these since I was a kid in 1960's Brisbane, Australia. They phased them out for diesel in the 70's and electric trains in the 80's. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. I am half expecting to see Casey Jones! Wishing now I had of gone from Durango to Silverton in Colorado by steam train. Excellent colour and saturation. Tfs.

    Hello Pierre,

    The warm colors of the rock contrast well against the blue sea and sky. Well composed with plenty of breathing space right around with the line of stones along the shoreline delineating the high tide mark. The banded bg clouds add interest. Tfs.

    Hello Danos!

    What a barrel of fun! Several in fact! The wine within looks nice too. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The highlights on the fg white wall have been perfectly exposed. A splendid upward pov. The fg wall provides perspective. Tfs.

    Hello Silvio,

    Fabulous warm cold colour contrasts between the yellow illumination and the blue hour sky. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the partly silhouetted arches and columns. The stairs at left add lead in lines to the upper balcony. A pleasant diffused light with good shadow detail. Tfs.

    Olá Angel!

    I like the graphic elements of the light lamppost against the dark shadows in the bottom left corner. Good sharpness and superb angled perspective with the lines leading deep into the centre and back of the image. The ornamental fountain adds a cool soothing atmosphere. Tfs.

    Hi Aleksander

    The solitary bird in the sky makes a fine focal point. Good sharpness and an nice warm cold color contrast between the grey blue sky and the red tiled roof. The workman seems unconcerned by the height. The 2 borders in the fg add a nice frame. Tfs.

    Hello Ryszard,

    The yellow and orange support structure parts of the bridge contrasts wonderfully against the blue sky in the bg along with the red magenta colored fg path. Good sharpness and well composed with good breathing space right around. The low horizon line and big sky work well here. Tfs.

    Hi Ike,

    The dual banks of the stream add natural lead in lines and deep perspective with the converging banks leading off to the top left. The rustic walkway enhances the scene. Good colour and sharpness with splendid saturation. Nice reflections in the creek. Tfs.

    Hi Stephen

    Looks a little like the Golden Horn in Istanbul from this angle. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation with superb reflections. The small traditional yellow fishing boat at right grabs my attention. Good framing and composition with the sloping terrain adding dynamism and perspective. Tfs.

    I remember this scene was on a postcard enclosed in the Pink Floyd album 'Wish you were here'. An enigmatic scene for sure. Good colour, sharpness and saturation. Nice reflections, interesting cloud patterns and strangely shaped rocks. Tfs.

    Hello Serge,

    The blue grey and white colors go exceptionally well together here. Good sharpness with superb reflections in the placid water. The tree at top left adds depth and layering and a splash of green. Good repetition of the stone arches in the bg bridge at left. Tfs.

    I only spent 10 minutes in LA, and hopped straight onto a bus to Yosemite. Excellent sharpness and I have flown from Moldova to Bucharest to Vienna and am now in the Czech Republic. A nice blue hour shot from the airport. A superb exposure on the white highlights with pinpoint sharpness. Tfs.

    Hello Achim,

    The Maya pyramid painting on the roof is eyecatching and the red brown color around it contrasts well against the blue sky. The people passing by animate the scene and provide scale. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The geometric square motif reminds me of Chinese motifs. Tfs.
