    Hi Christiane
    What an amazing picturesque scene, the mountain, lake, its fantastic deep blue water and that eye-catching tiny boat to alert the eye! I find it a very pleasurable nature and even soothing type of image. Great colour composition and well exposed, this place looks truly fantastic. Lovely shot, Congrats.

    Hi Jean
    An excellent beach scape, bright and colourful on a sunny day bringing lots of joy to the beachgoers and there's enough detail and strong points in making this shot work. The white waves and the woman brought it to life and into focus. Great work, TFS

    Hi Piotr
    Super bal composition with green framing the bottom of the image while the eye being drawn to the catchy snow peak mountain, complemented by some other attractive detail. Lovely tones, colours and your exposure is spot on, tasty indeed with all the ingredients well blended together. Wonderful shot, Congrats

    Hi Serge
    There's a lot in this - really great just looks so typically HDR! which seems to have brought out the best in this image, such are the colours, light and exposure and lovely detail through the rest of the shot is there for all to see. Love the imposing buildings and the cloudscape combination to finish off nicely with catchy addition of the fig. Well done, TFS

    Facade with graphic value - looking straight at those windows with appealing reflections adding the extra interest and dimension hinting at the location. The colours and clarity are really compelling which fits this excellent observational capture. Well done. Congrats

    Hi Philippe
    Your expert handling of low light exposure in this is admired, a treat of lovely crisp indoor image with nice details, perspective, dof and colours. The central view point draws the eyes all the way to the vivid coloured stained glass with its fine contrast. Lovely work flows and an excellent eye grabber seamlessly executed, Congrats.

    Hi Ryszard
    A nicely observed, and balanced compo capturing the peaceful garden blessed by overwhelming eye-popping colours & blooms which shines thru heightened by the blue sky. Good perspective as well the way the water fountain framed the fg which lends an effective anchor point. I think the visitors coincidentally adds a little something to the shot. Great capture, Congrats.

    Hi Benny
    Such a serene image depicting everyday life in rural China - which I imagine is really very hard. Excellent, a real piece of life seen from this pov and lots of interesting detail especially inspiring how the tiny framers hooks the eye from escaping away and love the way you've included plenty of their environ - that the background adds much - helps set the scene and tell the story. The treasure of colours brings this shot to life, incredible piece and definitely worth being very proud of and spectacular to say the least, Congrats.

    Hi Silvio
    A great invitation to enjoy the wide view of the old town scene at blue hour seen thru your impressive shooting point and smart framing with pleasant arrangement in this orientation. There's a good balance of exposure to get the most out of the scene while picking out the best of both world. Bright colours and good overall contrast on which you have captured admirably with excellent mixed lighting. Beautiful work, Congrats.

    Hi Pavle
    Enjoy the presence of space, warm light, perspective and the eager angler fully focus on his task full of expectation! The shooting point offers another view on the river scene that your have exploited the moment wonderfully when the late afternoon light works wonders as a plus point. Works for me real good, Congrats.

    Hi Krzysztof
    Lovely how the converging lines of the pavement leads up to the imposing fortification giving all the strong impact backed by some vivid colours, immaculate detail and superb contrast to polarised blue sky! The extra bold colours and fantastic cloud scape give this the extra punchy finishing touch. A delightful capture, Congrats.

    Hi Paul
    Impressive capture of this magnificent fortification with fantastic details in the stonework and the fresh colour against blue sky is especially outstanding. I love the movement of the people, gives it a lot of life, and indeed a strong subject full of content and history made special by this imagery, Congrats.

    Hi John
    What a splendid place in autumn with those gorgeous warm colours and the lovely back lighting, shades and shadows & shadows that it produced without losing detail in the highlights. Those beautiful houses clearly have accentuated the strength of this shot; a brill autumn capture. I'd say mission accomplished. Congrats

    Hi Paul
    It's aptly titled! This certainly gets our attention -staircase & artwork combination- a well spotted opportunity to brighten up the day which has been remarkably painted. I feel reds at mid-ground add as strong focal point. Those guys add touch of contrasty colour and liven the shot tenfold! Wonderful shot, Congrats.

    Hi Jean
    Excellent composition harnessing the 'beauty' of the coastal scape and the amazing residential dwellings 'embedded' in the rugged land mass! Lovely especially the way you've included a good volume on top, the natural colours and textured beautifully. What an experience to actually see it - almost unreal !! Congrats

    Interesting indoor shot. If someone said to me "Who took this image" I would know straight away but - it is very cleverly done with the sculpture sharp in focus and slight of focus bg & has your processing hallmark all over it. Well done shot, Congrats

    Hi Ruben
    It's everybody fav subject - sunrise and sunset but here the drawback is too obvious with shooting the high intensity of sun ray, the reflection is almost burnt out and glaring that you get. It distracts attention invading the more interesting areas of the image. I don't mean to be unkind, it is just my sincere opinions. Hope this is of help to you. Congrats
