    Salut Neyvan,

    A superb upward pov on the grandiose old building and perspective has been very well managed. The verticals have wisely been positioned in the centre allowing the tilted far right and far left lines to fall where they will. The tan color of the facade is unusual. Excellent sharpness and the modern highrise at left adds an old vs new theme. Tfs!

    Hello Carlo

    I like the angled pov on the square. The statue makes a fine focal point. The blue sky is a marvellous backdrop and sets up a wonderful warm vs cold colour contrast against the pale orange facade of the building top left. Good sharpness. I like the contrast between the shadowed area at right and the sunlit part at left. Tfs!

    Hello Wolfgang

    A perfect exposure on the bright highlights of the snow with the dark old tree adding excellent graphic elements against the lighter sky. Good sharpness and smart choice of a vertical frame to accentuate the height of the gnarled old tree. Looks like the wind is strong at times or the top of the tree was hit by lightning. Tfs!

    Hello Ike

    Looks like an Australian eucalyptus tree of some sort. It nicely frames the fallen branch in the lake at right and the bg shoreline. The channel at left adds good lead in lines and sharpness is excellent throughout. Nice reflections in the tranquil water. The irises in the workshops are lovely. Tfs!

    Hello Achim

    I am planning on going to Bucharest soon so this is interesting. Nice repetition of the tables and chairs waiting for the summer crowds! Great sharpness and well framed and composed. The diagonal path slashing through the centre adds dynamism. I like the diffused light & soft pastel colours. Nice repetition also of the arches along the balcony. Tfs!

    Hello Aleksander,

    From one arch in the fg to another set at McDonalds in the bg! Good sharpness and superb framing. The people add scale and animate the scene. I like the soft diffused light and colorful street scene. The bg tower and spire make a superb focal point positioned nicely over the vanishing point. Tfs!

    Hello Maciej,

    The orange red facad eof the building at right contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the al fresco dining area at left looks inviting. The statue adds a good focal point. Superb sharpness and a perfect exposure on the bright highlights. The dark silhouetted tree branches at left frame the scene nicely. Tfs!

    Hi Sasha

    Looks similar to some of the Romanian and Greek Orthodox styles of religious art. Good sharpness and saturation. Punchy light contrasts and well framed and composed. If this was a composite image stitched from 3, you've done a superb an flawless job. The 2 half circles top and bottom nicely frame the Virgin Mary. Tfs!

    Hi Noel,
    I spend 3 years in Dublin and yet again I feel like in a unknown city while watching your gallery again.
    Very nice presentation which shows a less popular image of Dublin. Well composed with the lower buildings framing the tall one interestingly. Great geometry, great colors with dominating blues.
    Very well seen and presented,

    Hi Roland,
    great postcard like photo. I would love it in my collection. Sadly when I was in Turkey they did not have this trip in the repertoire and I went from Antalya as far as Pamukkale only. I guess I have a reason to go to Turkey one more time.
    Wonderful piece of architecture which makes the viewer wonder how great it must have been before being damaged.
    Great presentation,

    Hi Angel,
    beautiful arch, I have never heard about this one yet. Very well captured with people on both sides helping to imagine the scale of it. The couple in the foreground adds a nice touch as well.
    I come from a region in Poland which was also called Galicja so I am always glad to see photos from the Spanish Galicia.
    Thanks for sharing,

    Hi Adrian,
    I have quite recently showed another viaduct in the UK.
    This one here seems much more modern and yet the shape is quite similar. Great reflections captured which make the arches into ovals. Amazing colors, good POV.
    Very well done!

    Ciao Romano,
    beautiful picture, I like the amazing light which produced great well saturated and natural colors. The shadows add a natural and three dimensional feeling too. Interesting to see this unknown structure from Rome. I recognize though the stature far far in the distance. Well framed here, everything is so well thought through. Pleasant asymmetric composition.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Philippe,

    The dual wheel tracks through the forest add good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Excellent sharpness and it looks more like the Amazon than Central France! I like the soft diffused light. The strong back-light has been well managed by blocking out most of the white sky top right by skilfully using the trees as natural filters. The yellow green trees at the vanishing point almost appear to glow with translucence with the light shining through them. Tfs!

    Hello Burak,

    Effective tight framing on the colorful t-shirts with sponge bob square pants, Mickey Mouse and M & M chocolate covered peanuts stealing the show. The stylised Paris shirt at the back would appeal to an older clientele. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. Nice repetition of the torso mannequins. I l like the mannequin at right breaking the pattern and facing away in profile. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    Aha, you were also there! A good upward shot of the Blue Mosque interior, with well managed low light levels and excellent sharpness and diffused light. The intricate Islamic decorations and geometric patterns and shapes add amazing repetition. Perspective has been well managed with the verticals placed centrally. Tfs!

    Hi Bulent,

    Well composed with the line of the wall commencing in the bottom left corner, with excellent sharpness. The text of 'The Strand Inn' is eyecatching and makes an obvious focal point. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red window shutters and frames and the 2 blue umbrellas at right. A superb high vantage point. Effective tight framing with impeccable sharpness and superb colour and saturation. Tfs!

    Hello Nicolas,

    I am guessing 'phares' is equivalent to Pharos or lighthouse in English and if so then yes the bright lights of the snow plough do indeed resemble a lighthouse. The yellow color of the plough (or 'plow' in US English) is eyecatching and visible in white out or fog conditions. Good sharpness and tfs!

    Hi Carlo

    Good density levels with wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the blue aky and the ornage red brickwork of the fort. Excellent lighting contrasts with crisp clean whites and solid blacks. Good high pov and superb sharpness. I like the forested hillside setting and the blue sky makes a marvellous backdrop. Tfs!
