    Hi Malgo

    This brings back memories! You had a fantastic blue sky to offset the red tones of the impressive church. Good sharpness and a balanced composition. The subtle fg shadow play is nice and the side4lighting excellent. The flowerpots are a new addition since I was there in July 2007. Tfs!

    Salut JJ,

    I like the wide angled panoramic format and the superb warm vs cold colour contrast betweent he reddish brown foliage of the Autumnal trees and the blue sky. Winter comes early in these parts! The 2 bald rocks either side nicely bookend the shot and add balance to the composition. Tfs!

    Hello Neyvan,

    I am so jealous! Raining and overcast in Ulsvag today and yesterday so I skipped Lofeten and went to Tromso instead. Gorgeous coastal scenery with excellent sharpenss and saturation. Nice reflections and the road leads the eye in nicely. Tfs!

    Hello Asa,

    Nice alternating colors in the facades of the attractive buildings. I like the architectural symmetry and harmony. Good color, sharpness and framing. Nice reflections in the pufddle bottom right and the spheres add interest. A nice blue sky too. Tfs!

    Ciao Carlo,

    The dual red brick gates contrast well against the blue sky. Adequate sharpness and smart choice of a vertical format. The bg castle looming over the scene adds a fine focal point and centre of interest. The vegetation frames the whole scene nicely. Tfs!

    Lol! A nice family shot on vacation that tells us something about Holland at the same time. Excellent sharpness throughout. The tourist paraphenalia in the bg adds context. Good graphism and color with nice light contrasts. Tfs!

    Hi Noel

    Superb density levels and contrast that have given good exposure levels and saturation. Superb sharpness and wonderful lighting. Excellent shadow detail and the diagonal shadow adds dynamism. A nice warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue sky and the reddish brown castle walls. Tfs!

    Nice framing of the imposing spire of the cathedral with adherence to the rule of thirds in the composition. Exquisite detail in the stonework with good sharpness and the people add scale. Excellent shadow detail and a fantastic upward pov. Tfs!

    Hello Dimitris,

    Missed this one. A superb landscape with good sharpness, colour and saturation. The red roofs of the old church contrast splendidly against the blue sky. A wonderful elevated pov also, with the verdant green fg completing the color palette. Tfs!

    Hallo Hans,

    Punchy light contrasts with adequate sharpness (I might have sharpened the image a little more excluding the sky), and good colour and saturation. The reddish brown walls of the castle contrast well against the blue sky. Excellent graphism and tfs!

    Amazing repetition of the car licence plates from almost every state in the USA. The mannequins animate the scene and provide a good focal point. Nice warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue plates at left and red plates at right. Tfs!

    Hello Achim

    I like the high pov and wonderful turquoise aquamarine colour of the water. Key West looks a bit artificial. Did you go to Fort Myers and Fort Lauderdale? Apparently they are more authentic beach towns? Anyway perfect sharpness and the red roof sets up a great warm vs cold color contrast. Tfs!

    Hello Way!

    I did not go trekking but must have seen these same peaks 6 times in 3 return flights between Nepal and east India and Bangkok, in Cosmic Buddha and Thai Airways flights. The high elevation has given an intense blue sky which has converted well in a nice deep shade of grey bordering on black. The 2 climbers animate the shot. Tfs!

    Hi Terez

    A good upward pov capturing the entire circle which always improves the composition! Wonderful detailed artwork and the 2 arched supports either side act as a nice set of book ends. The tiny area of slight oe is a small price to pay for the superb shadow detail overall. Tfs!

    Hi Anghuman

    It looks quite similar to the more famous Blue Mosque in Istanbul, but without the tourist crowds I am sure! Good sharpness and well managed low light levels in the interior of this grand mosque. Good colour and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Murat,

    Even from the thumbnail I thought I could make out the outline of an abstract horse. Well composed with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The abstract sculpture is worth a second look too for other hiding shapes! I like the high contrast and shadows reinforcing the graphic element. Tfs!

    The red spired wooden church in the bg makes a fine focal point & centre of interest. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. The yellow hued hillside at left contrasts well against the blue sky. A superb high pov. Tfs!
