    I'm in Sarajevo at the moment and heading to Split in Croatia tomorrow evening. Thence to Mostar. I might even have to stop in Mostar first. Thanks for posting. The main reason I am going to Mostar. Nice reflections and good sharpness and framing.

    Salut Christian,

    Formidable sharpness and impeccable color saturation and framing. Nice impressionist reflections in the tranquil water with the tourist crowds adding scale and animating the scene. I like the diagonal connection between the fg and bg towers. The 3 colourful flags and the crane add focal points atop the buildings. Tfs.

    Hello Gerrit,

    A tranquil mood and atmosphere successfully captured here with a sublime warm cold color contrast between the orange and blue tones in the sky. Good silhouettes of the trees and the reflection in the fg water is superb. Tfs.

    Ciao Ryszard

    I have fond memories of Wroclaw and the sharpness and density levels here are excellent. Good colour and saturation also. Nice warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the warm colors of the architecture, especially the red roofs. The fountains and quirky statues add charm and the mother and child at right animate the scene. Tfs.

    Hello Serge,

    Missed this one. Love the graphism of the dark silhouetted people in the fg and the graphic elements added by the black window frames against the well lit lighter toned interior. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The red and yellow either side contrast well against the blue hour sky. Tfs.

    Surprisingly with my knowledge of both English and French I can comprehend the Latin script. Good sharpness and neat tidy framing. Wonderful warm colours of reddish yellow with excellent sharpness, and the Roman numerals add to the effect. Tfs.

    Hi Ney

    The tour boat at left enlivens the scene and density levels are superb, giving clean whites and solid blacks along with ideal saturation and punchy light contrasts. Good sharpness and nice contrasts in old and new architectural styles of the highrise buildings. Tfs.

    Hi Neyvan.

    Excellent graphic element added by the dark tones of the equestrian statue and its rider against the lighter toned bg sky. Good sharpness and a superb blue sky backdrop. I like the upward pov on the Indian (or Native American for the PC) atop his horse. Tfs.

    Hello Ike,

    This has been a fascinating and educational series. Good sharpness and a fine overview of the ruins. The verdant irrigated fields in the bg contrast strongly against the arid desolate fg. The people add scale and animate the scene, and the rubble hints at the former grandeur of the fortified town. Tfs.

    Wonderful arm cold color contrasts between the yellow orange moon and the blue-hued mountains, with a strong, simple minimalist composition. Good sharpness and superb shadow detail. The fg tree adds depth and layering and a fine graphic element. Tfs.

    Hello Gert,

    They have a few of these in Hodonin / Holic / Skalica area too. The chefs are Vietnamese and prepare a fusion cuisine of Czech and Slovak food mixed in with Vietnamese fare. It's cheap, tasty and nutritious. Only 60 kurunas or about 2 euro. I think Chinese would use 'Huang' rather than 'Hoang'. In English, 'yellow'. The couple contemplating a meal animate the colorful scene. Tfs.

    The tan roof of the old car contrasts well against the white body. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused soft light. Excellent framing and composition using a diagonal pov to add dynamism. Good graphic elements too. Tfs.

    Hello Gert,

    A town on my to do list. 1955 is older than me! This clock looks less crowded than the one in Prague too. Good sharpness, saturation and colour. The waving men animate the scene and add life. A pleasant diffused light and well framed and composed. Tfs.

    Hello Bev,

    I recall another Warkworth south of Auckland in New Zealand. But this one is equally impressive too. Nice repetition of the colourful pennant flags with excellent sharpness and the mediaeval atmosphere has been well captured with the archers. The ruined castle makes an interesting backdrop. Tfs.

    Hello Daniel,

    The dual diagonal trolly tram tracks add deep lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Good sharpness and the red tram is well positioned near the vanishing point. The washing hanging out to dry from the balconies at left adds a nice daily life touch to the scene. Tfs.

    Hi Malgo,

    The wall shows good texture and the missing statues all bar 2 add interest. The white furred scots terrier at right has spotted you and the 3 seated people add scale and animate the scene. The diagonal stone bench right across the frame adds dynamism. A charming spot to rest for a few moments. Tfs.

    Hello Paja,

    I like the aerial perspective of the hills and their receding tones from dark at the front to lighter at the back. A superb sunset with good sharpness and saturation. The reflection of the sunset off the fg roof adds a lot to this image. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue and orange in the bg skies. Tfs.
