    Hi Lars

    Excellent shadow detail despite the strong backlight which has enhanced the graphic elements and tonal contrasts. Good sharpness and a marvellous high pov. Nice reflections in the water. Amazing repetition of the windows on the visible facade of the huge building. Tfs.

    Hello Angel,

    Smart choice of a vertical format to emphasise the height of the trees. Good sharpness and superb symmetrical reflections in the mirror like water in the fg. Excellent density levels that have given a good exposure on the bright highlights along with solid blacks. Nice repetition of the vertical trees. Tfs.

    Hi Maria,

    Adequate sharpness and a cliched but apt upload from India. Good color and saturation. Fantastic warm vs cold color contrasts between the orange and blue hues. The 3 baskets with cobras are evenly spaced across the fg. Tfs.

    Hello Ike

    I like the minimalist color palette of blue, black and white and the amazing repetition of the forest of yacht masts. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Interesting cloud patterns in the sky. Tfs.

    Ciao Eleu,

    Yes I can! Good sharpness and an appropriate upload for memorial day. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. I like the fg cactus apparently imitating the saluting soldier. I think it adds a bit of light relief to a serious topic. Tfs.

    Hello Wolfgang,

    A small but very personal chapel with good sharpness and nice repetition of the crucifix statues of Christ hanging on the wall. Excellent colour and saturation. The fg purple flowers add life to the scene. The large religious paintings on the walls provide symmetry and enhance the composition. Tfs.

    Bonjour Serge,

    Very nice fg reflections that add symmetry to the composition. Excellent color and sharpness with good saturation. The cascading water from the barrage makes a fine focal point. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue. Good textural details in the weathered rock strata. Tfs.

    Hi Stephen.

    The diagonal axis of the street provides good dynamism to the composition as well as adding lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective from left to right. A well managed nocturnal shot with excellent sharpness and attractive warm colors. The people at right animate the scene. Tfs.

    Hello Serghei!

    I like the silhouetted pagoda building against the orange red sunset colours of the sky. Good sharpness and well composed with excellent symmetry. I might have blurred the sky to mask the banding patterns. Good juxtaposing of the natural tree at left with the temple at right. Tfs.

    Ola Neyvan,

    You were luckier with the weather than me. I went there hoping to get a good sunset but it was not to be. Found some nice trolls sculptures adjacent to the lookout though so it wasn't a wasted trip. The double bay reminds me of Queenstown in New Zealand. Tfs.

    Hello Nicole,

    A superb postcard style shot from Venice with good sharpness and superb warm cold color contrasts between the bright red fg boat, the bg orange red tower of St Georges, and the blue sky and water. The fast shutter speed has avoided motion blur of the boat. Tfs. Bon weekend!

    Hello Luciano,

    Perfect sharpness with good density levels that have given crisp clean whites and solid blacks together with punchy light contrasts and ideal saturation. The giant book design awning at right is eyecatching, and the letters of the alphabet in pairs at left are intriguing. Tfs.

    The sweeping curve of the dirt road emanating in the bottom left corner adds strong lead in lines and good dynamism. Excellent sharpness, colour and saturation. The semicircular curve top left counterbalances the road and improves the composition. Tfs.
