    Hi Roland,
    I guess it is difficult for any man not to turn his head while passing Victoria's Secret shop :)
    Nice composition here with the collage of several layers.
    Very well seen and captured,

    Hi Mesut,
    I have a little daughter so majority of pictures which I take now are actually of her feeding some birds :)
    But they are lovely and this one as well here -it has a unique charm. It is so easy to make a child smile. We adults are harder to please I guess.
    Great capture!

    Bonjour Gigi,
    wow this is a real master piece. You have a perfect balance of the well shaped sun and the crispy sharp windmill and the mountains on the horizon.
    Salines provide a chance for the reflection.
    This is very romantic very impressive. Perfect use of the theme.
    Excellent work!!

    Hi Serghei,
    Very well used motif of the road combined with the sea on the horizon. The road makes indeed a great curve here. Everything nicely topped up with attractive sky.
    Beautiful work,

    Hi Bev,
    I had a pleasure to visit this beautiful spot a week ago. The weather was fantastic but I arrived quite late so I did not have a chance to enter the priory itself yet but I definitely have it on my list. Well it is on my list since I have seen it in your photos. It is just that I waited for a good weather so long...
    Beautiful presentation here, the light was great and so are the colors. Cemetery makes a wonderful foreground, and there seem to be no people around.
    Excellent work,

    lovely composition with the picturesque and such a colorful scene beautifully frames with the arch of the gate.

    Bonjour Denis,
    beautiful presentation of this magnificent castle. The reflection is probably the highlight here, it is almost 100%! The architecture is great and so well set among nature.
    Wonderful weather day helped a lot to provide a great sky.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Gert,
    fantastic street scene! I admire the quality! Again this photo is almost my age...
    It resembles some old illustrations to the Bible which I remember seeing as a child... These could be well some biblical characters.
    Excellent work!

    Bonjour Serge,
    beautiful light. I like very much how vivid are the reflections in water, it contributes to a wonderful foreground.
    Boat enhances well the interest of the picture while the trees carry already first signs of the autumn colors.
    Very well done,

    beautiful presentation of the cathedral. This is exactly how I remember Dublin :)
    Lady in the foreground adds a nice touch and an element of surprise as well.

    Hi Brian,
    I remember being impressed already by your photos from similar angle. This is a breath taking view and a master piece of composition. The depth of the field is very impressive. We can admire the texture of the white cliffs and even spot sharp lighthouse far on the horizon! The houses make a great foreground.
    Excellent work!!!

    Ciao Luciano,
    this is so pretty! I like the well saturated colors and of course the composition is perfect with a postcard-like outcome, exactly as I love it.
    Great processing, everything is crispy sharp.
    This is quite encouraging to visit this less popular island.
    Excellent work!

    Hi Piotr,

    I've heard that there is nothing much to see in Lyon but judging from this image that information looks to be wrong! Good high pov with excellent sharpness and good colour and saturation. Well composed with the horizon line well placed above the centre. The cathedral looks interesting and makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Karolina

    Looks like a relaxing summer scene and the person on the board paddling out nicely breaks the repetitive pattern of the static fg bathers to add contrast. Good sharpness and a nice warm cold color contrast between the reddish yellow sand and the blue water. Tfs!

    Hello Bev,

    Yes golf by candle or torch light doesnt sound like a good prospect. Good sunset with excellent graphism and silhouettes of the fg grasses. Nice warm cold colour contrasts and superb saturation & framing using the rule of thirds. Tfs!

    Hi Paul,
    I am glad to see your trip to Spain was not all rainy :) This seems like a wonderful weather! and the views are breathtaking indeed. This is something I guess I am looking for: spectacular places which can be still manageable with my little daughter :)
    Very impressive composition, great light, very encouraging to visit!

    Hi Daniel,
    great light here, very challenging but well used and final effect fantastic. I like the shadow of the ornamental fence here. The old town behind it looks so pretty and colorful. Walking this bridge was a bit scary but extraordinary experience.
    Great work!

    Hello Ike,

    I like the semi abstract look and feel of this tightly cropped image. Good reflections with the ripples adding interest. The green at the top and the 3 vertical shapes reachig deep down into the image from the top add balance to the compo and follow the rule of thirds. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    Love the super saturation and brilliant Autumn lighting here. The high pov gives an expansive view out over the lake and the power lines at right have been skilfully merged with the vegetation rather than outlined against the sky. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    The zig zags and curves add nice lead in lines and repetitive motifs. The fog adds mood, mystery and atmosphere. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The A frame bg building looks interesting. The absence of people enhance the feeling of desertion. Tfs!
