    Nice repetition of the fg red and yellow boats tightly clustered in one group in the fg. Their warm colors contrast superbly against the blue water and sky. Good sharpness and excellent backdrop of the whitewashed houses along the shoreline in the distance. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre,

    I like the juxtaposing of the fg woman waving her motion blutted hand against the backdrop of the static woman also with raised arms but no motion blur. I like the warm cold colour contrast between the attire of the two women also. Tfs!

    Nice repetition of the colorful multiple flags and the red mossy roof contrasts well against the bg blue sky. Good sharpness and a fine upward pov. You were lucky to have some windy weather so the flags aren't limp. The fg palm adds a graphic element. Tfs!

    Superb lead in lines added by the dual converging lines of the bridge which provide excellent diminishing linear perspective. Good sharpness and the castle is well positioned over the vanishing point. Excellent balance and symmetry in the composition. The fg duck is a nice focal point! Tfs.

    Hi Stephane

    I like the subtle lead in lines added by the winding wheel tracks in the shadowed fg, which contrasts superbly against the sunlit volcanic hillside in the bg. The yellow green color on the peak contrasts well against the blue grey cloudy sky. Good sharpness and the twin peaks are eye catching focal points. Tfs!

    Hi Gerrit,

    An attractive canal city reminiscent of its larger southern cousin of Amsterdam. Good sharpness and subtle reflections with excellent control over perspective with the dual sides of the canal adding good lead in lines and converging towards a vanishing point at the moored boats & distant cathedral spire.
