    Hello Ghislaine

    I love the symmetrical reflection in the water. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the yellow, red roofs, and the blue. The diagonal rail-slip adds dynamism. I like the shadow play on the far door at left. Tfs.

    Hello Wolfgang,

    Excuse me while I grab a facemask! The monochromatic brown color is indicative of the sandstorm. Must be hard to breathe in such conditions. A superb daily life scene with excellent sharpness. I like the repetition of the palm trees. Tfs.

    Bonjour Manuel

    Well composed using the rule of thirds with a colorful sunset backdrop and nice fg reflections in the pool. The 2 silhouetted coconut palms at left add a distinctive tropical mood and atmosphere. Nice warm cold color contrasts in the sky between the blue and orange hues. Tfs.

    Good reflections in the shiny, Burgundy red colored car with excellent sharpness and the bg bridge making a fine secondary focal point. Nice repetition of the lampposts. There is a nice warm cold color contrast between the bg blue sky and the red car. Tfs.

    Hello Eleu

    A simple composition, but strong and attractive. Good sharpness and superb warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the streak of yellow wildflowers, possibly dandelions. The dark tree at left adds a nice graphic element as well as a center of interest and focal point. Tfs.

    Hello Bev,

    A very Middle Eastern or Indian looking building with an attractive color scheme of blue, white and silver. Excellent sharpness and saturation. Nice to see a clear blue sky. I like the repetition of the patterns along the wall at left. The people enliven the scene. Perspective has been well managed. Tfs.

    Hello Stephen

    Good framing on the central oblong shape of the twin flower stands and green lawn. Plenty of breathing space right around and good colour and saturation. The clear blue sky is a bonus. Excellent density levels and nice shadow play at right. Tfs.

    The brightly colored bg tile mosaic of red green and blue forms a spectacular backdrop to the 2 people in the front. Good sharpness and saturation with punchy light contrasts and nice repetition of the fg square artworks. Tfs.

    Salut Neyvan,

    The yellow honeycomb colored building at right contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the Crucifixion scene at left is appropriately placed in front of the blue and white church at left. The motorbike riders in the front animate the scene. Tfs.

    I like the wide anged, panoramic format. Good color, sharpness and saturation. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red roofs at right in the village, and the blue sky. The same clumps of green mistletoe can be seen in the Czech Republic. Tfs.

    This image has a bright and sunny atmosphere and lighting different from your other Newfoundland shots. The streaks of remnant snow on the hillsides add a nice graphic element. Good sharpness and saturated colours. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs.

    Hello Ourania,

    Athens is certainly worth a day or 2 and I recall getting a shot of the distant Temple of Olympian Zeus depicted here. Unfortunately it was closed at 8pm. I was hoping to get a shot of its silhouetted columns framing the Acropolis at sunset. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Tfs.

    A good upward pov on the castle and fort with excellent sharpness and a nice multiple splash of purple added by the flowering trees. The cool blue cyan colours of the sky contrast well against the yellow green vegetation at right. Good colour and saturation. Tfs.

    Bonjour Philippe

    Fantastic use of a shallow dof with good sharpness on the fg calf and grass. Excellent graphic elements with the brightly lit fg contrasting well against the shadowed bg. We also have annual agricultural shows in Australia but with increasingly overpriced costs rising every year it's been a while since I went. http://www.ekka.com.au/ Tfs.

    Ciao Silvio,

    Wow! Missed this one. Spectacular repetition of the sunflowers and the pp effects give this image the look of a painting. Excellent warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue and yellow hues. Punchy light contrasts and the tower at right makes a fine focal point. Tfs.

    I like the minimalist color and the graphic elements in this image of contrasting tones and shades of dark and light. Good sharpness and terrific artistic pp work on the sky with a watercolour effect. Informative accompanying notes and the solitary old woman animates the shot. Tfs.

    The dual diagonal airport runways add good dynamism to the scene and some perspective as well. The snow capped peaks make a majestic backdrop and sharpness and saturation are superb. The fg flowering white almond or apricot trees add depth. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs.

    Hello Beverley,

    Missed this one. A little dark overall but the mood and atmosphere are fantastic. I like the repetition of the sailboards or dinghies as they are called in the UK. Good colour and sharpness. I like the reflected sheen of sunlight off the surface of the water. Tfs.

    Looks like a continuation on the bathing boxes theme common in the UK and Australia. Only here its the holiday cottages that are multi colored. Good sharpness and saturation with nice repetition of the shapes and patterns formed by the cottages. Tfs.

    Hello Zbigniew,

    Good sharpness and a fine upward pov showing 2 facades of the ornate old church building. The blue sky makes a fine backdrop. The red prism shaped roof at left contrasts well against the blue sky. Perspective has been well managed placing the vertical lines centrally. Tfs.
