    Hello Ike,

    Good graphic elements of the lighter toned egret against the darker toned bg reflection in the water. Excellent sharpness and well composed utilising the rule of thirds for the fg riverbank. I like the repetition of the ripples in the river, and the saturation is excellent. Tfs.

    Hi Danos

    Reminds me of the old movie 'On Golden Pond'! The stunning reflections of the sunset within the water are superb and the solitary boat makes a fine focal point. Impeccable sharpness and fantastic saturation. The sections of green vegetation add to the color palette. Tfs.

    The predominant pale yellow area of the town contrasts superbly against the upper blue sky and the lower blue boats. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the fg boats. Excellent reflections in the slightly ruffled water. The angled axis of the row of boats adds dynamism. Tfs.

    Hi Kari

    The snow capped mountain makes a magnificent backdrop. Good sharpness and nice reflections in the slightly ruffled fg water with a few waterbirds to add interest. I like the low hanging clouds which add mood. Excellent graphic elements with strong tonal contrasts between light and dark. Tfs.

    Bonjour, cher Aleksander,

    I know this spot. I was there last year. A fascinating 'must see' when in Krakow. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The red roof contrasts well against the blue sky and grey blue asphalt in the fg. The lamppost at left frames the scene nicely. Punchy light contrasts and graphic elements. Tfs.

    Ciao Lisa,

    I didn't know about this spot. Looks great! Lovely reflections in the water with marvellous warm cold color contrasts in the sunrise colors of yellow red and blue. The pier adds long deep lead in lines, and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. Good graphism of the boatshed or pavillion against the lighter sky. Tfs.

    A superb daily life scene of the two resting old men in Rajasthan. The yellow walking stick cane at left is a good detail. The color contrast between the pink magenta attire at left and apricot & yellow clothing at right id striking. The Ganesh portrait and stylised sun painting are additional fine focal points. Tfs.

    Hi Carlo

    The yellow flowers in the outdoor stone vase at left contrast well against the diametrically opposed blue vase at right. The two seated women animate the scene. Good sharpness and the dark fence against the lighter toned sunlit bg building provides a nice graphic element. Tfs.

    The warm hues of the yellow red ochre bricks the old church is constructed from, contrast well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and excellent framing and composition. The green peach tree leaves at right frame the scene and add depth and layering. I like the angled pov showing 2 facades. Tfs.

    Bonjour Paul,

    Nice repetition of the colorful umbrellas with excellent lead in lines an linear perspective with all points converging from bottom left to top right. A pity for the weather. I had the same in Budapest last October. The pink sakura makes a wonderful canopy above the umbrellas. Tfs.

    Fantastic warm cold color contrasts between the yellow and blue with the lone cyclist at right animating the scene. Good sharpness and the cloud formation looks like a giant tsunami breaking over the snowcapped peaks in the bg. Nice repetition of the trellised vineyards at left. Tfs.

    A pleasant spot to sit on the esplanade bench and admire the bg view of the harbour and yachts / boats. Good sharpness and the diagonal alignment of the promenade adds dynamism.

    Bonjour Lili

    The cow adds a good focal point and the image has a magnificent backdrop of jagged mountains. I like the fg stream with reflected blue skylight and its repetition of rocks worn smooth by the water. Amazing repetition of the pine trees on the forested slopes in the distance. Tfs.

    Bonjour Serge,

    Nice inclusion of the white swan, which makes a superb focal point. I like the way its head is tilted to the side, almost quizzically. The red and cyan window shutters are perfect complimentary opposites. They give a nice warm vs cold color contrast. Nice reflections and the green dinghy at left adds interest. Tfs.
