    Hi Serge!

    The quintessential shot of Times Square in NYC. Vibrant color with excellent sharpness and saturation. Nice repetition of the myriad of signs, some of them even in Chinese! Tfs!

    Hello Benny

    Many Chinese work very long hours (up to 80 hours a week) so it is no surprise to see them grabbing a catnap here and there when they can. Good daily life scene of the sleeping man on a boat. Tfs!

    Hello Gert,

    No snow or ice and the trees are green rather than dead looking. Plus the local people are wearing summer clothes rather than overcoats. Good sharpness and colour. Tfs!

    Hello Ike

    I might have added more shadows to this one but it is still good as is. This brings back nice memories of my visit to Vienna in 2014. The fg wall at right adds depth and a part frame. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo

    The girl in bright colourful clothing contrasts strongly against the drab grey statue. Good sharpness & the upward stairs add strong lead in lines taking the eye towards the back. Excellent sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

    Bonjour, cher Jean,

    The star of the show here is the field of fg yellow flowers. The red roofs in the bg against the horizon enhance the superb warm cold color contrast with the blue sky. Tfs!

    The woman's yellow skirt matches the color of the yellow flowers, which contrast superbly against the bg blue sky. Goop sharpness and well composed with smart choice of a vertical frame. Tfs!

    A splendid quartet of the wooden farm wagon with excellent sharpness and each image complimenting and reinforcing the strength of the others. The flowers add a splash of color. Tfs!

    Hello Burak,

    The ice and snow remind me of Erzurum. Good sharpness and nice use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. The diffused light works well and the cyan color of the walls adds interest. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    Nice repetition of the green topiary hedges and their rigid geometric patterns. Good sharpness and perspective has been well managed. The pillar and statue make a good focal point. Tfs!

    The fg grasses add depth and layering to the composition as well as acting as a frame. I like the warm cold colour contrast added by the red roof against the blue sky. Tfs!

    This shot gives a better idea of the huge size of the giant bird like sculpture with the fg people adding scale. Good sharpness anf the silhouettes of the fg figures add graphism. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    It looks sharp enough to me. The text of the wall posters is near perfect. Just a little motion blur of the 2 passing women. And the wheels of the shopping trolley. Well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Dag Rob,

    I like the wide angled, panoramic format and the amazing repetition of geometric patterns and shapes formed by the skyscrapers and their windows. The 2 large boats add centres of interest. Tfs!

    Hello Jean

    I like the 3 adjacent capital H shapes formed by the green ivy on the castle wall at right. Good sharpness and the subtle mowed grass strips add good perspective. Tfs!
