    Hi Danos

    I wish Rio every success. I believe this will be the first time the Olympics has ever been held in South America. Making the event truly global. The ceremony of transferring the flame is well shown here. Tfs!

    Hello Paul

    I like the aerial perspective of receding tones in the bg hills. The warm colors of the fg contrast starkly with the cooler blue tinged colors in the bg. Tfs!

    Hi Jean,

    I think I prefer the 39c with bright sun to this dull overcast weather but that's not your fault. Good repetition of the gondolas with a pleasant diffused light to compensate for the grey day. Tfs!

    Bonjour Denis

    Good use of diminishing linear perspective with vanishing point. The rows of tulips provide lines converging towards the back and deep perspective. A nice warm cold color contrast too between the red flowers and the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Ourania,

    This reminds me of shop windows in Rhodes. Lovely warm earthy colors of orange, tan and gold with formidable sharpness and nice color saturation. The face is intriguing. Tfs!

    It looks like one of those floating cities from the movie 'Waterworld'! Good sharpness and excellent density levels, with the green cranes resembling preying mantises. Tfs!

    Oi Alexandre,

    Looks like Moreton Island off the coast from Brisbane. Good sharpness and the yellow dune buggy contrasts well with the blue sky. I like the patch of sunlight on the distant dune. Tfs!

    Hello, Mesut!

    The only camel I saw in Turkey was at Harran near Sanliurfa so it was a surprise to see one here in Goreme too. The triple spired fairy chimney makes a great backdrop. Tfs!

    Hello Chris,
    Great cityscape, the houses and trees create a very colourful view in this fine sunlight. Good composition, in particular because of the river running diagonally through the photo.

    Bonjour Christiane,
    Excellent daily life photo of this town. The three people are well included in the composition, especially the one relaxing in the background. The graffiti makes for a colourful background.

    Bonjour, mon ami Philippe,

    The pale yellow orange facade of the manorhouse or chateau and its red roof contrast well with the blue sky to give a superb warm cold colour contrast. Good sharpness and well composed with plenty of breathing space right around. Tfs!

    Hello John,

    It looks like a watercolor painting. Perhaps a slightly faster shutter speed to avoid motion blur of the people? Good sharpness otherwise and the bridge makes a fine focal point. The yellow green ivy contrasts well with the grey blue sky. Tfs!

    A stunning reflection with good sharpness and nice rippling effect from the light wind. A good decision to invert the image to make it easier to identify key features. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    A good decisive moment capturing the man at the top of the escalator. He makes a good focal point and his dark clothing provides a graphic element against the lighter toned bg. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio,
    I very much like the pattern that the play of light and shadows creates on the old wall of this lovely old church. The fine, fresh green against the hill forms the perfect background.

    Hello Beverley,
    Wow, what a contrast indeed with your previous photo. Both the B&W and the rocky landscape create an entirely different mood here. Great idea to post these two very different photos of the same place.
