    Hello Miro,

    Missed this one. I like the texture screen effect. Good density levels that have rendered superb lighting contrasts and saturation. Terrific warm vs cold color contrasts between the yellow and red facades of the buildings and the blue sky. I also like the wall murals and frescoes. Nice repetition of the street lamps. Tfs.

    Hello Nicole,

    It is hard to go wrong with a shot from Venice. Just about every image I took of 100 or so was worthy of uploading to TE. Here is no exception. Good pastel colours with superb sharpness and nice reflections in the water. Excellent repetition of the gondolas in a diagonal row, adding dynamism. Tfs.

    Ciao Francesco

    Wonderful saturated colour with marvellous reflections and effective tight framing. I like the striking warm cold colour contrasts between the red, yellow and blue. Good to include a section of the boat at left. The dappled sunlight on the prow is superb. Looks like a painting! Tfs.

    Hello Silvio,

    A superb high pov with good sharpness and attractive minimalist colours. I like the graphic elements of the lighter toned village walls and facades against the darker toned bg of shadowed hills together with the grove of dark fg pines in front of the village. Tfs.

    Hello Stephen

    I went there in the 80's long before Martin Bryant did a copycat of the Dunblane Scotland shootings, in 1996. The scaffolding and fence look new to me as does the excavation. Good sharpness and the trees at right add depth and layering. Excellent colour and saturation. The yellow flowers and orange supports contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Gert,

    A superb daily life scene from Nepal with vibrant color and good sharpness, especially for an analogue film shot. The shallow fg dof work well here. Nice repetition of the wicker baskets. The profiled mother with her nose ring and child makes a fine focal point. Tfs.

    Hi Malgo,

    I like the square format and the superb sharpness. The man at right in the red shirt animates the scene and his attire contrasts well against the blue grey tones to give a pleasing warm cold color contrast. The open panel in the door provides interest. I can see some Islamic designs that support the Muslim conquests mentioned. Tfs.

    Hello Gerrit!

    The Burgundy red school uniforms contrast well against the blue grey asphalt to give a pleasing warm vs cold color contrast. The effect is mirrored by the placards also with red and blue contrasts. Very good sharpness and effective tight framing on the group. Tfs.

    Hello Daniel,

    Smart choice of a vertical format to emphasise the height of the iron bridge. Good sharpness and the parked bicycle provides a fg focal point. Excellent graphic elements of the dark shadowed parts of the bridge against the lighter toned bg sky. The blue sky also contrasts well against the red roofs at left. Tfs.

    Salut JJ,

    The dark blue grey road leading towards the yellow facade of the building at left adds both linear perspective and nice warm cold colour contrasts. I like the repetition of the vertical drain pipes. Superb sharpness with good shadow detail. Tfs.

    Hello Ike,

    The boat at left and the side of the canal at right provide dual lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Good sharpness and nice reflections in the water. The bg buildings and their facades add nice repetitive patterns and colours. Tfs.

    Ciao Klaudio,

    A superb triptych and very professionally assembled and presented. Good sharpness with each image complimenting the others. The 2 circular blue fountains left and right are echoed in the circular ventilation window in the centre which also allows more light inside the structure. Tfs.

    Hello Klaudio,

    Nice use of the arch as a framing device to draw attention to the barren bg mountain. The person at left animates the scene and provides scale. Good repetition of patterns and designs within the arch itself. Excellent sharpness and shadow detail. Tfs.

    Hi Klaudio,

    I like the wide angled distortion and downward pov. The meal looks delicious! Good sharpness and in a world with an increasing population and growing pressure on available resources, it makes sense to eliminate waste of food. What is in the bottles? Yoghurt perhaps? Tfs.

    Hello Pierre

    I like the wide angled, panoramic view and the dynamism added by the tic tac toe squares with their lines converging towards the back and providing deep perspective. Good sharpness and the people animate the scene and give scale. The modern bridge at left contrasts well against the old stone building at right. The repetition of the arches adds to the composition. Tfs.

    I like the roughly equal segments of blue at the top and bottom in this well composed shot. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The 7 green cupolas at left are eyecatching. The amazingly crowded riverbank is astonishing. Tfs.
