    Hello Chris,

    This is a fine 'blue hour' shot.
    It really stands out, even as a thumbnail.
    The close-up of the tower gives us excellent textural details of the walls and amazing, colourful details of the deep windows. I'm sure it has a completely different persona to that which it displays in daylight!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Constantino,

    Your early morning photograph has worked well.
    The light is gilding the building and creating a wonderful reflection in the water.
    Your viewpoint creates excellent guide lines and a strong sense of perspective.

    I wonder if the fisherman was successful.
    Sometimes fishermen just go for the peace and quiet and relaxation.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Olivier,

    Your photograph certainly shows a very alien landscape but, it is no less interesting because of that! What a contrast of surfaces we can see! Your viewpoint creates a diagonal approach across the frame to the colourful focal rainbow.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)
    Iceland certainly appears a very attractive place to visit, especially for a photographer!

    Hello Sven,

    I just love the building on the right, with its network of glass, its circular shape and its fine reflections.
    Somehow, I don't think the two buildings work well together. They are so different and each is fighting for superiority because they are of equal size.
    I propose a crop to emphasise the beauty of the glass building. I hope you don't mind but I have done a w/s for you. See what you think.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Daniel

    A nice minimalist shot with good textural details in the blue bg wall which contrasts so well against the bright yellow flowers of Spring. Excellent sharpness and the weathered lighter blue framed window enhances the scene. Tfs!

    Bonjour Roland,

    It would seem that many people have visited Colmar in recent months! This is such a lovely town, with very attractive, colourful buildings and interesting textured, tiled surfaces.
    I like how you have used the pedestrian for f/g interest and as a guide, diagonally into the frame. The light is good and the details well captured.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Rosemary,

    A lovely deserted beach for a long walk with time to contemplate and reflect. Good sharpness and superb warm vs cold color contrasts between the reddish yellow sand and the blue sea and sky. I like the v shaped gutters in the sand formed by the receding waves as the tide went out. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe

    An extraordinary garden indeed! Good colour, sharpness and saturation. The repetition of the statues is amazing and I am half expecting to see an old Macdonald statue somewhere amongst all the ducks, chickens swans, rabbits and lambs! Tfs!

    Hi Bev

    A superb b&w image and a fine upward pov over the castle. Good sharpness and tonal range with excellent lighting contrasts and nice graphic elements. I like the angled pov and repetition of the 3 circular watchtowers. Have a nice week!

    Ciao Caro Romano,

    This church, sandwiched between two other buildings, is remarkably beautiful. It displays a fine architectural style and is covered with exquisite sculptural decorations, which have been photographed with excellent sharpness. In fact, the details are so clear, I have to ask, 'did you use a tripod?'

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Steven!

    The wide angled, panoramic format works well here and I like the high pov. The dead trees and logs along the shoreline add interest and hint of some long distant disaster. The curving shoreline adds good lead in lines and the yacht makes a good focal point. The red roofs contrast well agaisnt the blue water at right. Tfs!

    Bonsoir, cher Costantino,
    Très bien vu le fait d'avoir intégré la proue du bateau pour créer un effet spécifique à cette réalisation.
    Nous avons vraiment l'impression de participer à la découverte des îles.

    Hola Pili,

    I spent a few days in Lisbon so this sight is familiar although it wasn't foggy when I was there. Simple minimalist composition here that works well with just the bridge and Christ statue. Good sharpness and minimalist colours also. Tfs!

    Hello Kamila,

    You have brought us some delightful images from China. The beauty is undeniable.
    Here, we have another very well composed shot, paying attention to the rule of thirds and with elements well positioned in the frame.
    The light and reflections on the water are lovely and help to give a greater sense of depth.

    My warm regards,

    Bonjour, cher Aleksander,

    Looks cold and no wonder they want a little warmth from the impromptu camp fire. The people add scale and their thick winter attire reinforces the impression of cold. Good sharpness and the icy fg textures are well shown. Tfs !

    Hello Fabiano,

    Good sharpness and a superb high pov overlooking this gloriously white and near deserted beach. Good warm cold color contrasts between the blue sea and the reddish yellow sand. The diagonal shoreline adds both dynamism and linear perspective tapering off towards the harbor top right. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    As a friend, I always want to see what you have posted and give you an honest critique. It is important that critiques are not just back-slapping but are a true opinion.
    I hope you won't be offended by my honesty.
    You have given us a photograph which has superb sharpness but I find it really difficult to access the photograph. I cannot see the composition. I cannot find a path or a connection between the mass of higgledy-piggledy details.
    I wonder if it would have been better to have focussed on a smaller section or, maybe I am just too set in my ways!!

    I hope you will not be offended.
    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    The rust orange red facade of the building at left contrasts well against the blue sky ant the ornate decorations on the cathedral are amazing. Good sharpness & smart choice of a vertical frame to emphasise the height. Tfs!
