    Ciao Silvio

    The rust red orange under wings of the colorful butterfly contrast superbly against the bg blue sky. Formidable sharpness and nice use of differential focus. An informative note, too. Tfs!

    Bonsoir, chère Cricri,

    Impeccable density levels that have given solid blacks and clean whites along with perfect saturation and lighting contrasts. Good sharpness and the yellow rapeseed contrasts splendidly with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hi Ryszard,

    I like the star shaped roof of the main church building at right and the outdoor pews and seats at left near the belltower. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. Tfs!

    Hello Sergio,

    The banana trees and coconut palms in front of the houses add a nice tropical mood. The stairs up look manageable provided it isn't +90% humidity and 38c. Good sharpness and color and I like the beached boats along the shoreline. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe

    The warm yellow and red hues of the castle contrast well with the bg blue sky to give a pleasing warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The zig zag wall at left adds nice lead in lines towards the clocktower. Tfs!

    Hello Benny

    I like the triple banding on a diagonal here of sea beach and reddish exposed earth in the lower half of the image. A tremendous elevated view of the coastline with good sharpness and color. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    A nice rural scene with the grazing sheep. Good sharpness and looks like they have lush green grass to eat instead of the dried brown grass they get to eat in most parts of Australia. The diagonal and the blue sky enhance the shot. Tfs!

    I love the layer of fog and mist adding atmosphere to the shot. Terrific perspective and good repetition of the trellised vines. The snow capped alps make a majestic backdrop. Tfs!

    Hello Pavle,

    A good street scene image from north Serbia and judging by the peoples heavy winter clothing it must still be cold. Excellent sharpness and the flag and man attending his bike at far left are nice details. Tfs!

    Effective tight framing with good sharpness overall. The top of the clocktower could be sharpened a little more. But the rest of the image has excellent sharpness. Good inclusion of the fg people for scale. Tfs!

    Hej Gert,

    Missed this when I was in Albania and the main road from Shkoder to Tirane bypasses the town. A pity as it looks authentic and interesting. Well framed and composed and the minaret provides an additional partial frame to the green tree at left. Tfs!

    Hi Jorge,

    I tried a workshop adding more brightness and contrast. A sad reminder of the abyss between 2 religions and regions in the Middle East. Good sharpness and composition. Tfs!

    Hello Ike

    The Museum architecture itself is of as much interest as the exhibits it houses. Looks Victorian in style. A superb high pov with excellent sharpness and superb color and saturation. The people add scale. Tfs!

    Ciao Carlo,

    Looks a little soft and could benefit with some sharpening. But the composition and subject matter are superb. I like the soft diffused lighting & superb shadow details. The covered bridge with its many arched spans makes an ideal focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Kari,

    I've only been to the Thames in central London. It was cleaner and more fast flowing than I expected. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the boats. The dark ominous bg skies contrast well with the sunny fg. Tfs!

    Looks a little like Matera. Fantastic elevated pov with good sharpness and the tightly clustered stone buildings atop the hill surrounding the citadel. Excellent clarity and lighting. Tfs!
