    Hi Pavle,

    The red combed white rooster is well positioned on the vertical 1/3 axis in the frame. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. The shallow dof works well here. Judicious use of a flash too with almost no hard shadows and zero reflections. Tfs!

    Hi Craig,
    normally I would say that this is such an amazing view from a fantastic viewpoint but since you have spoiled us with the drone photos which better present the amazing location of these ruins -this photo works less impressive.
    Drone photography aside, this is really a wonderful scene with the location of the castle well noticeable from this point. We can see the sea all around it.
    The photographer taking a picture further in the distance adds a very nice touch.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Kiks,
    lovely composition. Both the chapel and the castle have quite extraordinary design. I have been in this region but not seen this particular place. Portugal has so much to offer.
    Very well done, you have hit two birds with one shot.

    Hi Will
    very romantic scene. The couple adds a wonderful touch to the beautiful view. I see you had an ok light when you got there. When we were there with Bev it was almost dark. The tree branches frame the view from above. I like the well exposed surface of the mountains, we can admire their texture.
    Excellent work,

    Hola Luis,
    very well spotted street scene from an touristy area. I like very much such places and I could spend hours browsing through little shops particularly those with souvenirs.
    Very charming composition with so many attractive, decorative elements arranged into a pleasant view.
    You have great eye for spotting charming scenes, I would probably pass this place losing this nice opportunity,
    Excellent work,

    Hi Paul,

    Lol at the woozy title! Fantastic mirror like reflections bent and distorted by the moving water. Good sharpness and the magenta pink color of the buildings contrasts well with the blue skylight. Tfs!

    Hi Costantino

    The salmon pink red lines contrast well with the blue sky and basketball hoop support beam. Good sharpness and saturation. The white marble Doric columns make a fine centrepiece. Tfs!

    Bonsoir Christiane,
    I have skipped visit to this modern part of Paris this time. I am sure however that I will visit this amazing city again someday.
    This is such a creative composition. The geometry is stunning and the way you showed these three buildings next to each other helps to appreciate their uniqueness.
    Very well seen and captured!

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    is your cattle well? :)
    spectacular wildlife photography. The whole herd of these unique animals. I don't think I have ever seen a yak in my life. Here you have captured so many of them in the vast open space with a beautiful landscape in the background!
    jaw dropping and so very interesting!!!

    Hi John,
    lovely design indeed, and on top of that it is yellow!!!
    Car designers in the past were definitely much more creative as opposed to current practical approach.
    Fantastic reportage!!

    Czesc Malgorzata,
    oczywiscie ze ta strona jest ladniejsza ale ta strona jest zawsze w cieniu poza wczesnym porankiem w lecie i w sloneczny dzien :)
    bardzo trudno tu o atrakcyjne swiatlo.
    Moj szerokokatny obiektyw swietnie by sie tu spisal...
    Bardzo ladny efekt, masz rownomiernie oswietlony palac, dobra ostrosc, odbicie niedoskonale ale wystarczajaco ladne zeby dodac uroku kompozycji.
    Natomiast przyciecie troche okaleczylo widok :(
    Kompromis znaczy ze nic nie jest w koncu doskonale.
    Nie mniej dla mnie jest to bardzo ciekawe.
    Ja juz tam pewnie nie wroce -jesli nawet bede znowu przejezdzal od jednej rodziny do drugiej wypozyczonym samochodem (moze za dwa lata) to raczej zatrzymam sie tym razem przy tamtym czerwonym palace ktory pokazalas wczesniej,

    Pozdrawiam serdecznie,

    I like the repetition of the squares and the capital I shaped structure of the distorted reflection of the man. Good sharpness and well framed and composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs!

    Hi Mariusz,

    I'm glad you made the effort to get to this part of Bosnia. The far south is a rewarding destination and less touristed than Mostar. A fine upward pov of the cathedral interior with fantastic colour and sharpness. Tfs!

    Perspective has been well managed placing the vertical lines centrally. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Excellent warm cold color contrasts between the red & blue such as the flag at top right against the sky. Tfs!

    Hello Serghei,

    I like the 2 opposing triangles, the larger one at the back formed by the 2 headless statues and the obelisk spire and the smaller more obvious one in the fg with the mans splayed legs and shadow. Tfs!

    An unusual palace with nice repetition of the arches. Its overall pale buttery yellow color contrasts well with the blue sky to give a rich warm cold color contrast. Tfs!
