    Hello Craig,

    Great and very refreshing (pyschologically at least), to see some snow on a hot day of 40c in Albania. Good sharpness and natural looking color. The red walls of the huts contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hi Eleu

    Effective tight framing and I guess in an arid desert-like climate around Las Vegas succulent plants that conserve moisture are the rule rather than the exception. Wonderful repetitive patterns and an interesting accompanying note. I was fascinated by the Saguaro cacti. Saw a couple at the LV chocolate factory! Tfs.

    Hi Lars,

    Good sharpness and perspective has been well managed placing the verticals centrally. I tried placing both the Eiffel Tower and Big Bemn off to the side of the image frame but the distorted angles made it seem unnatural. A good angled pov showing 2 facades and the distinctive French-styled architecture. Tfs.

    Hello Murat,

    A very colorful theme park and I vaguely recall reading Doctor Suess in the early 1960's as a small child. The winding gray road at right adds superb lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Good sharpness and the people add scale and animate the scene. Tfs.

    Ciao Silvio,

    Looks similar to the Canadian or US Rocky Mountains. The snow capped peaks are a welcome sight with temperatures here in Albania around 40c. Good sharpness and color. The dark green pine trees add a nice graphic element. Tfs.

    Hi Ike

    I think the pink blue hour shot is the best of the series but this one is nice too. Perfect sharpness which gets more difficult as the light fades. I like the warm cold color contrast between the fg yellow and bg illumination. Tfs.

    Hello John,]

    For sure an uncommon portrait in your gallery and the 'young' man is about the same age as my nephew. The soft diffused light works well here. Fantastic sharpness and smart use of a shallow dof to isolate him from the bg. Tfs.

    Hi Mics,

    I've been to Palawan (El Nido) but not Coron, which I only flew over on a flight back to Manilla. Loved El Nido and the same inviting turquoise color of the water and eroded limestone can be seen here. A nice tribute to Lisa and yes she is passionate about equal rights for indigenous peoples.

    Hi Burak,

    Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the red city hall buildings and the blue hour sky. I might have tried a higher shutter speed to freeze the fg people and reduce motion blur, or even a lower shutter speed to get even more ghost-like motion blurred images of the people to give a more artistic effect. Good sharpness and saturation. Tfs.

    Hi Delphine,
    beautiful landscape! I like very much lakes in the mountains they always add so much interest. It is also the case here: this greenish color of the lake is stunning! Very nice vertical frame, so suitable for this occasion. I like the well saturated natural colors.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Angel,
    Indeed I had a glass of sherry on my trip to Andalusia but I think I had it in Sevilla as in Jerez we were focused mainly on the Feria del Caballo :)
    Lovely fountain -nice composition here with attractive houses in the back. Altogether it makes a very pleasant scene, very welcoming to visit.
    Very well done!

    Hi Lars,
    indeed the light was quite challenging, a bit pity that so much of the building is covered with shade but nevertheless you have managed to convince me with this photo that this is a beautiful structure with nice architecture.
    Very well done!

    Ciao Lisa,
    perfect waterfall photo! I agree with you it is so difficult to expose it properly. I have tried recently with a waterfall nearby and I failed all my photos are rubbish (although I used one as my main photo on FB but it was more about people).
    So I am so jealous about this one here!
    Excellent exposition!
    I like this white turning slightly blue: it reminds me about what I read in newspaper that tonight is going to be so called "blue moon" special full moon which happens once in 2.7 years.
    This picture could well go to illustrate the blue moon night.
    Wonderful work!!

Swietny punkt widzenia na ratusz i rynek z gory, Widac typowa kwadratowa zabudowe i placyk pelen zieleni. Wspaniale kolory, super swiatlo. Bardzo atrakcyjna prezentacja!

    Hi John,
    very attractive corner. I like how the beautiful church rises from behind the white buildings in the foreground. You found a great corner here everything seems to be in consistent style and well taken care off. The sky complements your composition from the top.

    Bonjour Cricri,
    I would never guess that these fantastic rock formations are in France. I thought more about Cappadocia or American Southwest.
    Amazing orange color and incredible shapes -plus it is all combined with the intense blue and green colors.

    Hi Chris,
    spectacular view! I have seen pics from this POV before -this must be the best spot with the characteristic tower and the view over the fjord. You had a great luck to have this huge ship passing it adds a nice touch here too. You placed it very well in the right spot! Very impressive view with those mountains on the other side.
    Excellent work!!

    Hola Luis,
    it looks like a great place to retire indeed!
    I like very much your well thought through composition with the gate framing the tower perfectly. It also covers the uniformly blue sky which would be too boring otherwise. Great idea and a perfect realization.
    Have a great weekend,

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    wspaniala fototgrafia! Niebo nie mogla sie udac lepsze! Kolory super! Pomimo ze zdjecie takie podobne do zdjecia Craiga to jednak tak zupelnie inne. Nie chce mi sie wierzyc ze to z autobusu. Jest super wyrazne! Swietnie sie prezentuja rowniez te gory w oddali. Warto bylo jechac prawda!

    Ja natomiast wlasnie wczoraj wrociclem do domu po operacji :)

    Jesli chodzi natomiast o Norwegie to ostatnio zona opowiadala mi o niemilej sytuacji jaka miala w pracy. Jej kolezanka zaczela nagle przy lunchu opowiadac o Polakach jacy sa beznadziejni jak przyjezdzaja do Norwegii zeby wykorzystywac system, jak nocuja po kilkoro w pokoju i pracuja za najgorsze pieniadze a przede wsyztskim ze przyjezdzaja wykorzystywac system i dlatego powinno sie ich wyrzucic itd. Biorac pod uwage ze ona mieszka w UK i sie nie krepuje tak mowic przy innych -moge sobie tylko wyobrazic co mowia ci mniej swiatli Norwegowie o nas...

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    again it is so easy nowadays to make this type of picture with the digital camera when you immediately see effect and can adjust accordingly. Here you demonstrate your real skills: to be able to achieve such amazing effect with analog camera one need to master the photographic skills really well.
    I like how you have used the characteristic silhouette of the arched wall -it makes the picture so interesting. Palm trees silhouettes add to is as well.
    The sky is spectacular of course!
    I like the round shape of the sun with a little aurora around it. It works really impressive!
    Excellent work!
