    Hi Ike,

    I like the diffused light and the subtle warm cold color contrast between the grey blue asphalt and the red roof of the Alsatian restaurant. And I know they don't serve dog in there ;-) You would have to go to Korea and look long and hard to find a back street restaurant with a canine menu, apparently for stamina,, although I never tried or saw ant need to try it. The glimpse of water bottom left adds interest. Tfs!

    Hello Brian,

    Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the richly saturated yellow green grass and the blue sky and water. Wonderful rippled reflections and the decaying piers add interest. Nice repetition of the boats on the far shore. Tfs!

    Bonsoir, Ourania,

    The orange tinted clouds contrast well against the blue sea and sky and the tongue of land at right adds a focal point and centre of interest. Good sharpness and the distant hazy bg blue grey island makes a good secondary focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Danos,

    Good graphism and shadow detail with a surreal dramatic sky. The reddish brown sepia tint top right contrasts well against the blue grey clouds. The people add scale and animate the scene. I like the upward pov on the mounted ship. Tfs!

    A fantastic nocturnal shot all in gold and black. Good sharpness and graphic elements with superb symmetrical reflections and nice framing of the silhouetted people within the entrance arch and it cylindrical reflection. Good repetition of the windows. Tfs!

    Salut Didi,

    Well framed and composed although I would have left a little more breathing space at the top above the statue's head. Well managed low light levels with good contrasts between the textures and tones. Have a nice week!

    Salut Didi,

    Good density levels with excellent sharpness and punchy light contrasts. The twisted ruin of the tower adds a fine focal point and graphic elements. A nice blue sky that contrasts well against the red roof and brick wall at right. Tfs!

    Hi Michel

    The 2 dark trees at right add a nice graphic element and nicely frame the semi frozen bg. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with the horizon placed below the centre line. Good shadow play in the fg. Have a nice week!

    Ciao Silvio,

    Fantastic graphism and silhouettes with wonderful reflections in the tranquil rock pools and more impressionist ones in the rippled bg water. The stone fort and islet add an interesting bg focal point. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs!

    Hello Kari,

    I like the wide angled panoramic format and inclusion of the Sydney Harbour Bridge at right and the iconic Opera house at left, nicely bookending this superb nocturnal shot. The city sandwiched between the 2 looks impressive against the blue hour sky. Good sharpness and nice reflections at right. Tfs!

    Hello Aleksander

    The invisible diagonal axis formed by the 2 mushrooms adds dynamism and lead in lines. Good sharpness and dof with natural, realistic colour. I also like the warm cold color contrast between the yellow green grass and the blue grey vegetation. Have a nice week!

    Hello Gigi,

    So Holland does not have a monopoly on tulip flowers in Europe! Nice to see them in France, too. Wonderful lead in lines and perspective with vivid colors and good sharpness and saturation. The downward slope of the terrain also helps to lead the eye towards the back of this image. Striking warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue and red. Merci!

    The mist adds mood, mystery and atmosphere. A superb high pov overlooking the characteristic hilltop villages of these parts with their tightly clustered stone houses. Good sharpness and soft pastel colors. The elongated c shape nicely leads the eye right around the image. Tfs!

    Hello Ryszard,

    This would make a good bookmark! The elongated vertical format works well in this superb b&w image. Nice repetition of the vaulted arches with good sharpness and graphism. I also like the marvellous tonal range and textural details. The upward pointing triangular arrow shapes lead the eye imperceptibly towards the top. Tfs!

    Wonderful distorted reflections in the windows, that remind me of some of the 'melting' figures in Salvador Dali's art. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with perfect symmetry into first 2, then quadrants. Tfs!

    Hi Lisa

    I have never been under the SHB, but I did walk under the Storey Bridge in Brisbane 4 years ago and found a large gecko painting done in an Aboriginal style of art (indigenous Australians to the pc inclined). It is good to check out these usually hidden spaces from time to time as most people just drive straight over it, or only see a profile from a distance. Oh and I also walked under the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, although you cannot get as close to the support structure as depicted here due to concerns about terrorism. Tfs!

    This reminds me of an American tv show I used to watch as a kid back in 1960's but the name of the show escapes me. Good use of a shallow dof and the whimsical dummy steals the show at left. A fine head and shoulders portrait of the man at right too! Tfs!

    Maybe she is praying to my namesake, St Christopher, the patron saint of travel? Her suitcase seems to suggest so. Good use of a shallow dof with excellent sharpness aon the lit candles, altar and chandelier with soft focus on the impressive artwork at the back. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicou,

    Tres jolie! I like the diagonal shaft of sunlight emanating from the sun. Good warm cold colour contrasts between the orange skies and hazy blue mountains. Good silhouettes and graphic elements with the tree, bench and structure at left. Bon semaine!

    Hello Christiane,

    I remember going to a salt farm in Thailand and having to wash my feet and shoes which were covered in salt and mud, so I hope you did not have too much problem here. The pinkish red color is unusual and contrasts superbly against the blue sky. The diagonal channel adds good lead in lines and dynamism. Tfs!
