    Hello Silvio,

    I like the layering in the composition here with the fg bridge, the bg tower with the blue turret, and the hilltop building perched in the forest in the very far distance. Tfs!

    Olá Alexandre,

    The people at bottom left add scale to this imposing waterfall. Good sharpness and a nice exposure setting that adds just a hint of motion blur to the cascading water. Tfs!

    Hi Mariusz

    It seems the pigeons or seagulls have had a field day using this statue as a perch! Good sharpness and a wonderful blue sky devoid of clouds. I saw in the news today that the wreck of the Endeavour was located off Rhode Island where it was sunk during the US war of independence. Tfs!

    Hi Ike,

    The bright red hull of the ship contrasts well with the blue sea and sky. The much smaller and closer sailboat in the fg makes a good contrast against the very much bigger freighter. Tfs!

    Hi Daniel

    The countryside around Tulcea is vry picturesque and is enhanced here by the golden fields of rapeseed. Good sharpness and a fine elevated pov. I spent a few days in Tulcea last month. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo

    This mural is enormous. Smart choice of a wide angled panoramic format. The schoolchildren in the playground add scale. Excellent tonal range and density levels. Nice light contrasts too. Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    Missed this one. Wonderful reflections in the tranquil harbour waters with good saturation and sharpness. The red and blue shacks in the distance add strong warm cold color contrasts. Merci!

    Hi Neyvan,

    A stunning fiery sunset with good sharpness and saturation. I like the silhouettes of the bare, gaunt trees. The vivid yellow and orange tints stand out well from the blue grey hues. Tfs!

    Hi Luis

    Good textural details in the weathered old facade of the building and a nice contrast between the faded colors and the vivid colors of the laundry hanging out to dry. Well framed and composed with excellent sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Mesut,

    Good use of a shallow dof to isolate and emphasise the camel. I like the downward pov from an elevated position and the red and blue cloths on the saddle which add warm cold color contrasts. Tfs!

    Ciao Pierre,

    The modern styled church has nice curves and good sharpness. The bare trees add layering and depth and partly frame the building. The evergreen tree at right contrasts well with the bare trees. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe

    A marvellous blue sky with good sharpness throughout. I might have cropped a little from the bottom to remove the part of a car at right. The yellow green tree at left contrasts with the bare tree at right. Tfs!

    Hello Danos,

    This one is probably the best of the series so far. A splendid capture of the ceremonial handover of the Olympic torch to Rio. The inclusion of the Greek and Brazilian flags adds context. Tfs!

    Hello Kik,

    I was lucky enough to see some tulips in Bulgaria this year and just in the nick of time. The following day someone had come along and snipped and cut about 90% of the flowers that were there then I photographed them in Primorsky Park in Varna. Good layering of the different colors here with nice use of a shallow dof. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    Effective tight framing on the magnificent Gothic cathedral with good sharpness. It looks a little like the Notre Dame in Paris in style. Or Nimes. The stained glass windows look like promising photo subjects, if photos are allowed inside. Tfs!
