    Hello Ike,

    Nice repetition of the green topiary hedges and their rigid geometric patterns. Good sharpness and perspective has been well managed. The pillar and statue make a good focal point. Tfs!

    Ciao Ana

    I love the colourful decorations on the goats. Good sharpness & excellent use of a shallow dof. The expression on the goat's face suggests indifference. Tfs!

    Ciao Luciano.

    A strong and simple composition of just the couple and the hopeful dog with the food wrapper. Good sharpness and immaculate framing. Realistic looking colour and saturation. Tfs!

    Hello, Pierre!

    The fg grasses add depth and layering to the composition as well as acting as a frame. I like the warm cold colour contrast added by the red roof against the blue sky. Tfs!

    This shot gives a better idea of the huge size of the giant bird like sculpture with the fg people adding scale. Good sharpness anf the silhouettes of the fg figures add graphism. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    It looks sharp enough to me. The text of the wall posters is near perfect. Just a little motion blur of the 2 passing women. And the wheels of the shopping trolley. Well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Dag Rob,

    I like the wide angled, panoramic format and the amazing repetition of geometric patterns and shapes formed by the skyscrapers and their windows. The 2 large boats add centres of interest. Tfs!

    Missed this one. The seagulls amongst the sheep add charm to this shot. Good sharpness and the body of water in the centre separating the fg from the bg provides interest. Tfs!

    Hi Gert

    Gouda is more famous for its cheese than just about anything else and like Amsterdam the city is crowded with bicycles. A fine capture of the imposing town hall. Possibly Amsterdam is one of the few major Dutch cities that deserve more than a full day. Tfs!

    The library resembles a giant blue and white spotlight. Good sharpness and a nicewarm cold color contrast between the yellow and blue at left. The fg green grass strip acts as a frame. Tfs!

    The film strip like black borders work well here. Good sharpness and the meandering road adds strong lead in lines towards the back. I like the parallel paths of the track and canal. Tfs!
