    Hi Roland
    Interesting viewpoint, excellent angular arrangement and lovely touch of warm light nicely contrasts against the vivid red while the soft shadows accentuate the sense of depth and space within the constraint. An insight of this touristic spot pleasantly shot under natural light. Excellent catch, Congrats.

    Hi Aleks
    A brave chimney man! I just love how the wonderful shapes, textures, colours and that guy merge into a coherent whole. You have a wonderful eye for this sort of shot when the focal length of 200mm has compressed the image nicely with the two buildings appearing much closer together than I am sure they were. Good job yet again. Congrats

Exposure control, colour rendition and delicate detail are second to none, and your lens work is so seamless makes it easy on the eye. Indeed a pleasant, meaningful full of content. Congrats

    HiAngel
    Excellent perspective and orientation with a little something else on the fg to convey the scale of the charming white wash old dwelling. It's nicely set off against the blue sky and this evokes some wonderful memories of the past and deep history. Your good narratives guides us so smoothly. A very well done capture and pleasure to view as always.
    Congrats and tfs.

    Hi Nicolas
    A tranquil lake view on a bright early misty morning, love the soft tones and such a fabulous composition, I think the lucky birds are there awaiting to be included but they also provide you as strong anchor point while the towering mountains frame the bg superbly. A really clean shot and a feast to the eyes no doubt, I think you could not ask for anything better... Congrats. TFS

    Hi Jean
    Like it, it is eerie almost black & white isn't it but it's timeless once in a life time capture which lends a tempting deep perspective showing nature's raw power. Your safe distant view point is great with the sunlight positioned behind the geyser then it is a matter of watching and waiting for a big bang! I think the acidic smell is something you have to get used to, but the geysers and the mist coming off is awesome. The exposure must have been a challenge here but you have handled it seamlessly, i love those sparkling long icicles they are of added value as natural framing. What an amazing landscape one of nature wonders and a sight to behold I am sure. Remarkable shot and tfs, Congrats

    Hi Ryszard
    A challenging night shot; light enough to show some great detail and dark enough to show the true effect of the lighting and glowing colours of the foot path which really add to the image. Human fig in the distant has given the extra interests and this makes an interesting view, something to gaze. A pleasant scene nicely composed and exposed. Well done, Congrats tfs.

    Hi Manuel
    You have a solid shot - a delightful subject to be proud off and there's a pulling power on the grandeur of this historic structures packed with enormous detail, textures, soothing colours with good scale proportion. A capture delicately handled with lovely touch of low warm light depicting the serene ambient at the same time. Needless to mention, I admire the beauty of the receding columns and arches stretching the view all the way in, they are the strongest elements making this look so majestic! Remarkable capture, Congrats

    Hi Claude
    Excellent in frame capture, nothing better than getting in amongst the action and you're closer enough to really make the shot with a sense of action. Love playing with the lighting and strong shadow when you really have stopped this lad in mid air before the crash maybe... Brilliant well timed, the concentration and sharpness. Sweet shot of a refreshingly different take on a sports image. Congrats

    Hi Eleu
    We've all seen plenty of hot air balloon images so here's one from a slightly different and this is a very unusual take on the balloon shot Eleu, I like it.. So this is what it would be like to be inside the semi-inflated giant balloon. It makes a bold, in-your-face powerful composition and the silhouette looks a little like he's caught in a giant spider web, strong lines, the flowing patterns and colours, the sort of image that makes the brain work. This is a cracker and full mark for this outstanding coolness factor. Very interesting and engaging shot. Detail captured is immaculate, My congrats.

    A pleasing image of a lovely piece of engineering, like your composition showing off an interesting area on a bright day which makes all the difference here. The perspective and vpoint you have used and the colour combination are great under clean blue sky but the green patch is lovely additional colour to this catchy railway bridge. And as usual, exposure, sharpness and finishing -first rate! Well done, Congrats

    A very colourfully vivid - an eye-catching night shot and I'd say very well spotted taken at a ludicrously low shutter speed producing a fine visual impact and
    I could hardly miss seeing this! Very smartly done as always that you have cracked this game of light & colour so strikingly. Congrats

    Hi Ike
    A picturesque town by the river, I love the perspective, viewpoint and brilliant lighting with excellent water and sky effect. A cute water front and a wealth of colorful detail, there's much more to explore on the compact looking slopes but full of its own charm with the prominent easily identified. You have done well with the exposure for it does look pleasantly balanced throughout. I also feel the extra beauty is enhanced by the dark grey sky. A pretty sight and tx to your brief notes. Well done, Congrats
