    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.

    The quaint arched stone bridge makes a great focal point. I like the soft pastel colors and the misty snow capped peaks in the bg. The small patch of sunset skies at left looks good. The dual sides of the stream add natural perspective. Tfs.

    Fantastic symmetrical reflections in the tranquil fg lake with a majestic backdrop of snow capped mountains. Impeccable sharpness, with good colour and saturation. The diagonal slope at right leads the eye down towards the lake. The small village along the lake shore at right adds interest. Tfs.

    Hi Denis,

    A good downward pov on the remains of the ruined farm and the Atlantic Ocean. Good color contrasts between the blue sea and the green vegetation, with excellent sharpness and framing. The dark black rocks add a nice graphic element against the lighter surrounding tones. Tfs.

    Hi Roger

    I also took some shots at Mather Point and posted them to TE. A spectacular part of the world and well worth the 17 hour flight across the Pacific from Australia. There might be quicker more direct flights but I stopped over in Hawaii on the way back. The red and blue colors give a tremendous warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs.

    Hello Silvio,

    The fog adds mood and atmosphere and I like how the fourteenth century castle pokes up above the mist and fog. Good sharpness and the red turrets contrast well against the grey blue clouds and mist. Tfs.
