    Bonjour Nicolas,

    I love the V shape on its side formed by the perfect symmetrical reflection. The successive ridges give this trees the look of a giant arrow. The yellow green forest contrasts well against the blue sky and reflected skylight in the lake. Tfs!

    Hello Saša,

    Another fine concert shot, this one with exceptional sharpness, good stage light color and excellent light contrasts and saturation. Well framed and composed. Nice repetition of the patterns on the bg wall formed by the lights. Tfs!

    Salut Jean J,

    Good textural & tonal details here with excellent wall murals and wonderful color and sharpness. Perspective and framing have been well managed. Nice contrast between the bleak grey street and the crumbling, peeling facade of the building which look as if its undergone some hasty repairs with plaster. Tfs!

    Bonjour Gerrit

    In hindsight, I kind of regret not taking any photos of the vultures I saw in the Gobi Desert, even though I had the opportunity. This beaked fish eagle sort of reminded me of that although it is certainly better looking! Good dof and sharpness. Tfs!

    Ciao Piotr

    I like the golden illumination emanating from with the house and its contrast against the blue hour sky giving a wonderful warm cold color contrast. Good graphic elements with punchy light contrasts. Nice repetition of the fallen Autumn leaves on the fg lawn. The angled pov on the house allows us to see both sides. Tfs!

    Impeccable sharpness and a fine upward pov on the tower. Good density levels with punchy light contrasts and superb warm cold color contrasts between the pale lemon yellow tower and the blue sky. The red roof enhances the effect. Excellent symmetry and perspective control in the composition. Tfs!

    A fallen dark angel that has come crashing back to earth perhaps. The original sculptor certainly has/had vision and imagination. The woman photographing the statue animates the scene as well as providing scale. Effective tight framing with no part of the space in this scene wasted. Tfs!

    Hello, Malgorzata!

    The fg people animate the scene and add life. I like the red facade at right contrasting against the blue and yellow domes. Good repetition of shapes and patterns, especially the stars. Nice textural details in the fg pavement. The fg structure housing a mounted cross adds interest here. Tfs!

    Hello Georg,

    A superb alpine photo from Austria & taken from a marvellous high pov, with good sharpness & color saturation. The fg ridge covered in conifer trees adds depth. The isolated rocky tor or peak top right makes a fine focal point. A wonderful blue sky backdrop. Tfs!

    Ciao Romano

    This reminds me of my first visit to the Great Wall of China. I could hardly see anything so I went back a few days later and had blue sky. Good sharpness and perspective with excellent lead in lines and mood. Good to include the man walking away from us as he animates the scene. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio

    Just enough shadow detail in the fg to make out the green lawn. Good warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the yellow red facade of the stone walls of the St Thomas church building. I like the orange glow low to the horizon. Tfs!

    A superb high pov of this charming Italian valley with the meandering river far below. Good high pov and I like the warm cold color contrast between the reddish brown cliffs and the hazy blue shadows below as well as the patches of blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello, Denis!

    The water looks rough. The orange buoys in the water contrast superbly against the blue cyan sea, and the bright red orange and yellow facades of the multi story buildings at right enhance the effect. Good sharpness and saturation. Merci!

    Fantasti cwarm vs cold color contrasts between the red brick cathedral and the blue sky with excellent sharpness and smart choice of a vertical format. The green lawn makes a suitable contrasting colour. The seat at left adds interest. Tfs!

    This nocturnal float in the parade is certainly colorful! Effective tight framing and it resembles an abstract flamenco dander. I can make out a butterfly or 2. Reasonable sharpness considering the conditions and movement. Tfs!

    It looks like the side of a highrise building. Someone could lay on the floor and pretend to be hanging on by their fingernails! Good sharpness and I like the low shooting angle. Excellent lead in lines and perspective with good colour. Tfs!

    Hi Gerrit,

    I like the repetition of the contoured terraces curving around the hillside. A good high pov overlooking the river below with excellent sharpness and framing. The steep banks add natural lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    A little dark and gloomy but that just adds to the atmosphere. I like the repetition of the icebergs in the bay and the rippled wave patterns in the water. Good sharpness and the coastal village looks neat and tidy with plenty of space between each house. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen

    For a moment I thought you had gone to a Chinese rock group's concert! Good sharpness on the Buddha statues and I like the angled pov which adds dynamism and perspective. Vibrant warm colours with excellent saturation. The blue window contrasts well against the gold statues. Tfs!
