    Hi Malgo,

    The brightly colored bg tile mosaic of red green and blue forms a spectacular backdrop to the 2 people in the front. Good sharpness and saturation with punchy light contrasts and nice repetition of the fg square artworks. Tfs.

    Salut Neyvan,

    The yellow honeycomb colored building at right contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the Crucifixion scene at left is appropriately placed in front of the blue and white church at left. The motorbike riders in the front animate the scene. Tfs.

    I like the wide anged, panoramic format. Good color, sharpness and saturation. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red roofs at right in the village, and the blue sky. The same clumps of green mistletoe can be seen in the Czech Republic. Tfs.

    Bonjour Pierre

    This image has a bright and sunny atmosphere and lighting different from your other Newfoundland shots. The streaks of remnant snow on the hillsides add a nice graphic element. Good sharpness and saturated colours. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs.

    Hello Ourania,

    Athens is certainly worth a day or 2 and I recall getting a shot of the distant Temple of Olympian Zeus depicted here. Unfortunately it was closed at 8pm. I was hoping to get a shot of its silhouetted columns framing the Acropolis at sunset. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Tfs.

    A good upward pov on the castle and fort with excellent sharpness and a nice multiple splash of purple added by the flowering trees. The cool blue cyan colours of the sky contrast well against the yellow green vegetation at right. Good colour and saturation. Tfs.

    Bonjour Philippe

    Fantastic use of a shallow dof with good sharpness on the fg calf and grass. Excellent graphic elements with the brightly lit fg contrasting well against the shadowed bg. We also have annual agricultural shows in Australia but with increasingly overpriced costs rising every year it's been a while since I went. http://www.ekka.com.au/ Tfs.

    Ciao Silvio,

    Wow! Missed this one. Spectacular repetition of the sunflowers and the pp effects give this image the look of a painting. Excellent warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue and yellow hues. Punchy light contrasts and the tower at right makes a fine focal point. Tfs.

    I like the minimalist color and the graphic elements in this image of contrasting tones and shades of dark and light. Good sharpness and terrific artistic pp work on the sky with a watercolour effect. Informative accompanying notes and the solitary old woman animates the shot. Tfs.

    Bonjour Nicolas

    The dual diagonal airport runways add good dynamism to the scene and some perspective as well. The snow capped peaks make a majestic backdrop and sharpness and saturation are superb. The fg flowering white almond or apricot trees add depth. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs.

    Hello Beverley,

    Missed this one. A little dark overall but the mood and atmosphere are fantastic. I like the repetition of the sailboards or dinghies as they are called in the UK. Good colour and sharpness. I like the reflected sheen of sunlight off the surface of the water. Tfs.

    Bonjour Serge,

    Looks like a continuation on the bathing boxes theme common in the UK and Australia. Only here its the holiday cottages that are multi colored. Good sharpness and saturation with nice repetition of the shapes and patterns formed by the cottages. Tfs.

    Hello Zbigniew,

    Good sharpness and a fine upward pov showing 2 facades of the ornate old church building. The blue sky makes a fine backdrop. The red prism shaped roof at left contrasts well against the blue sky. Perspective has been well managed placing the vertical lines centrally. Tfs.

    Hello Delphine,

    A superb n&b shot with good sharpness and tonal range. The bg cathedral atop the hill makes a fine focal point. Good density levels that have given crisp clean whites and solid blacks. The fg couple animate the scene. And the way their bodies merge into a cartoon like character is amusing. Tfs.

    Hello Stephen,

    I can detect a little motion blur in this image. But a wonderful clear blue sky with good saturation and colour throughout. Very nice repetition of the brown chairs and their back of the seat cover heart designs. The red roof sets up a good warm cold color contrast against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Bonjour Miro,

    A superb high pov with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The gardens are well kept and the man pushing the woman in a wheelchair at the bottom caught my eye. Nice repetition of the ornamental circular fountains and adjacent palm trees, which add a tropical mood. Tfs.

    Hi Malgo

    I think I enjoyed Kutatjuta (the Olgas) more than Uluru (Ayers Rock). Good sharpness and the characteristic red sandstone conglomerate and soil are evident here. They also contrast well against the blue sky. From memory I think there were 36 heads. Excellent color and saturation. Tfs.

    Good sharpness and excellent graphic elements added by the dark protective fences on the dunes against the lighter toned background. Well composed using the rule of thirds and the yellow red color of the sand contrasts well against the blue sea and sky. Tfs.

    A superb high vantage point overlooking the rugged, mountainous terrain. Nice repetition of the spurs and ridges and the roads add lead in lines. Excellent sharpness and village and carpark atop the plateau provide a good focal point. Tfs.

    Hi JJ

    Delft is famous for the hydrology engineering used for design of the system of dykes protecting low lying Holland from the North Sea storms. A quaint square here with the clocktower at right dominating the image. The people add scale and animate the scene. Good sharpness and the red lion, shutters and rooftops contrast nicely against the blue sky. Tfs.
