    Hi Will,

    The perfect density levels have given clean crisp whites and blacks and good colour saturation. A superb upward pov with good sharpness and well managed wide angled perspective, with the verticals positioned just right of centre. The moon is a nice addition. Tfs!

    Hello Asa,

    Interesting to see another Troy. I visited the original last year and after all the hype what a huge disappointment it was and how little there was to see, I still managed to find it way better than expected. It was actually a Greek city state in Turkey. Here I like the red brick fountain side contrasting against the blue sky. Lynard Skynard were correct! The statue of the warrior is nicely framed by the plumes of water and I like the upward pov. Tfs!

    From the thumbnail I thought this looked familiar and I was not mistaken as I spent 3 days in Lindos last May. And of corse this is at the entrance to the stairs leading up to the Acropolis. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Excellent shadow detail on the carved boat in the rockface. Tfs!

    Hello Satya,

    A lovely clear blue sky backdrop with good sharpness and nice fg reflections in the water. Excellent repetition of the whitewashed stupas which remind me of Kathmandu in Nepal. The people add life and scale. The red flags contrast superbly against the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen

    Not just the UK but across Europe and Australia too Ferris wheels are currently enjoying a renaissance in popularity after being in vogue in the 70's and becoming less popular in the 80's and 90's. http://thewheelofbrisbane.com.au/ I saw yet another in Brighton. This one in Liverpool fills a vacant space between 2 high rise flats. The fg river makes a nice fg layer. Tfs!

    Hello Luciano

    Stunning warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and the reddish orange facade of the church, as well as the lemon yellow fg buildngs, with excellent sharpness and saturation. I like the upward pov and the diagonal fg road provides good lead in lines. Tfs!

    Bonjour John

    The boat makes a fine focal point and the dual sides of the canal provide lead in lines and perspective. Well composed with the sides of the canal starting in or near the corners. The orange red posts and boxes at right contrast well against the blue grey sky. Tfs!

    Hello Ike.

    Perspective has been well managed and the diffused light has provided maximum shadow detail. Good colour and saturation. The curved side of the display unit provides good lead in lines towards the bg crowd. The columns resemble mushroom stalks! Tfs!

    A well composed shot of the fishing boat with adequate breathing space right around and good sharpness, color and saturation. Nice fg reflections in the water and I like the warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and water and the yellow and red striped boat and bg red roof. Tfs!

    Punchy light contrasts on account of the good density levels which have also given excellent saturation. Well composed with the curved diagonal promenade adding both dynamism and good lead in lines and perspective. Nice reflections and good repetition of the boats. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    This aircraft appears to have a very long fwd section in front of the wings. A fine upward pov with good sharpness and smart choice of a fast shutter speed to freeze movement. The angled position adds dynamism. The clear blue sky makes a superb backdrop. Tfs!

    An interesting accompanying note and I like the lion claw seat. The blue cyan sculpture contrasts well against the bg yellow ochre cathedral. Excellent sharpness and a fine upward pov. Good sidelighting from the left which gives relief and illustrates textural nuances. Tfs!

    Bonjour, Josť,

    Good to see the original again after seeing the idea copied in architecture all over Europe. A nice blue sky that sets off the white marble nicely. Reasonable sharpness considering a zoom lens is mandatory here. It was roped off from public access last year. Tfs!

    Hello Danos,

    I was going to say that this castle looks very European, and on reading the note it becomes apparent why. Good sharpness and a nice upward pov with excellent diffused lighting and natural looking colour. And like Europe there is always some renovation or repair work going on! Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    Effective tight framing and good use of a shallow dof. The fg apple tree nicely frames the bg shed. Good sharpness and excellent warm vs cold color contrasts, with realistic colour and saturation. A nice blue sky that contrasts well against the rusty red roof. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen

    I am having the same problem in Budapest. Dont know whether to start shooting or come back another time when the skies are blue. A superb angled pov on this Liverpudlian landmark with good sharpness and excellent upward pov on the neoclassical building. The green moss on the stairs suggests that it rains a lot here or is damp & humid. Tfs!

    Effective tight framing with no part of the image wasted. Fantastic warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and the red bricks. A superb angled, 3d pov with good sharpness and density levels that have given perfect light contrasts and colour saturation. Tfs!

    This reminds me of an old communal laundry I saw in Safronbolu in Turkey. The angled pov works well here on the rectangular shape. Excellent shadow detail and sharpness with good diffused light overall. The warm reddish roof contrasts well against the blue grey hues. Tfs!

    Hi Ike,

    I particularly like the muted colours and the subtle warm vs cold colour contrast between the lit yellow red wall at left and the shadowed blue grey interior. The tiny human figure adds scale. Good sharpness overall and excellent framing. Tfs!

    I like the lemon yellow color of the walls and ceiling in this superb interior image. Good backlight and nice reflections in the polished floor. The 3 uniformed officers make a fine focal point. Good repetition of the arches and columns at the sides. Tfs!
