    Hello Silvio

    Good sharpness and I like the general sweep of the curved bay. Good sharpness and color and although not in the same league as Amalfi, this still looks very nice as a beach resort. Tfs!

    Hello Denis,

    I like the repetition of the weathered wooden fence palings with spikes as they add depth and layering and a partial frame. The bg greenery and tower add focal points. Tfs!

    Good use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point at the tunnel. Excellent sharpness and the bikini girl is easy on the eye! Tfs!

    Hola Luis,

    The architectural style is reminiscent of Holland or Belgium. Good choice of a vertical frame with splendid sharpness and the salmon pink color at far left contrasting well with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Good density levels and exposure which have given clean well exposed whites and solid blacks. Punchy light contrasts with superb sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello Angel,

    I like the tilted red hats in the bg and their repetition. The bartender animates the scene. Good sharpness and the 2 curtains either side act as a frame. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    I'm a big fan of ancient ruins (probably because there aren't any in Australia), and the Middle East, North Africa and Europe are rich in archeological sites like this. Good sharpness and textural details. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    The trouble with wearing red against a blue sea bg is that it makes you highly visible and an easy target for enemy archers and cannons! I guess camouflage wasn't known in those days. Good sharpness and lighting. Tfs!

    A beautiful view of the lake with good saturation and a superb high vantage point offering an expansive view. Good sharpness and the blue lake or 'See' as they are called in German, makes a fine focal point in the distance. Tfs!

    Hello Gert,

    It's the same all through eastern Europe. Old habits die hard and although countries like Romania and Bulgaria are no longer dictatorships, a lot of people are still keeping an eye on neighbors and tourists in line with the old Soviet Union policy. More effective than cctv in its day! The man watching resembles a secret agent. Good daily life scene from a little seen part of the world. Tfs!
