    Hello Nicole,

    The decaying wooden pier stumps of the pylons add a graphic element. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The church spire forms a good focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Steph,

    Yes this is definitely the piece de resistance when it comes to Dresden Architecture. And it was great of the son of one of the original RAF pilots who bombed Dresden, fashioned the cross atop the church seen here, and the UK donated 60 million pounds towards reconstruction of the city. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe,

    The rust red colour of the roof contrasts superbly against the pale blue sky. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. I like the upward pov. The fg yellow green shrubs add depth & enhance the warm cold colour contrasts. Tfs!

    A good nocturnal exposure with excellent sharpness. If you switch to aperture priority setting at f16-22 to get a longer time exposure you should get starburst patterns with the lights. The ship and 2 bridges make good focal points. Tfs!

    It looks a little like a painting from the thumbnail, but less so upon opening as a big picture. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. The couple add scale and animate the scene. The castle makes a good focal point. Tfs!

    HI Christiane,

    Aptly named! It is indeed a canyon and most certainly very red! Good sharpness and the people provide scale. The blue gray tussock grass sets up a nice warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

    Such a graceful and elegant big cat and a real shame they are struggling to survive in the wild. Excellent sharpness and good symmetry between the shelter shed shadow at the top and the pond at the bottom. Tfs!

    A wonderful reflection in the store window but at first I thought you had been to Missouri in the USA (MO US). Strong warm cold color contrasts between the yellow ocher and blue tones. Tfs!

    The partial backlight has been well managed with no appreciable fall in saturation which is often the case. A wonderful rich blue sky backdrop with good sharpness on the building. Tfs!

    Hello John,

    Amazing repetition of the geese ducks and flamingoes. I wonder where the birds go in winter, especially the flamingos? Do they fly back to Africa or are they kept on site in a special warmed enclosure? Tfs!
