    Hi Sven

    The overhanging square of the cliff is intriguing. And yes it does resemble a model railway. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Good to have the red train carriage in the centre. The summit is well placed on the 1/3 axis at left. Tfs!

    Hello Ryszard,

    Good use of the central pillar to make this resemble the stem of a flower, with the ornate ceiling resembling a floral arrangement. Superb sharpness and framing. The exposed red brick contrasts well with the blue cyan tints. Tfs!

    Impeccable use of a shallow dof with good sharpness and superb color and saturation. Nice density levels and punchy light contrasts. The orange winged butterfly makes an obvious focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge

    The gold domes look great against the blue sky and give a tremendous warm cold colour contrast. The architectural style of the church is reminiscent of Russian Orthodox churches. Good repetition of the crosses too. Tfs!

    A good angled pov with excellent sharpness and perspective. The trees soften the hard outline of the buildings and the people add scale. I like the clear blue sky backdrop. Tfs!

    Hello Paul,

    The trainbow certainly seems to be an attractive magnet for the crowds. The sombre church of St Nicholas makes a striking contrast to all the color in the fg. Tfs!

    Hello Pavle,

    It must be like buffet dining for crows after heavy rain with earthworms and assorted insects coming out of the ground or drowned. Good sharpness and excellent color, saturation & framing. The concrete arches at the back add interest. Tfs!

    This wide angled shot amply shows just how flat the terrain in Florida is with no sign of any hills on the horizon. The green forested background makes the buildings along the waterfront stand out more. Tfs!
