    Ola Stephen!

    Hope you enjoyed Portugal. I only managed to see Lisbon and Tavira but liked what I saw. Good sharpness and a superb blue hour shot with marvellous symmetrical reflections. The yellow orange lights contrast splendidly agaisnt the blue water and sky. Tfs.

    Hello Miro

    Excelelnt sharpness and a good decisive moment shot of the aircraft at top right. The yellow and blue tail sets up a fantastic warm cold color contrast with the red at left enhancing the effect. Tfs.

    The quaint arched stone bridge makes a great focal point. I like the soft pastel colors and the misty snow capped peaks in the bg. The small patch of sunset skies at left looks good. The dual sides of the stream add natural perspective. Tfs.

    Witaj Sasha!

    Effective tight framing with excellent sharpness and superb graphic elements of the dark security grate against the white highlights of the bg white windows. Good saturation and I like the 2 circles in the top right of the window, one in the grate and one in the window. Tfs.

    Bonjour, Jean

    Fantastic symmetrical reflections in the tranquil fg lake with a majestic backdrop of snow capped mountains. Impeccable sharpness, with good colour and saturation. The diagonal slope at right leads the eye down towards the lake. The small village along the lake shore at right adds interest. Tfs.

    Hi Denis,

    A good downward pov on the remains of the ruined farm and the Atlantic Ocean. Good color contrasts between the blue sea and the green vegetation, with excellent sharpness and framing. The dark black rocks add a nice graphic element against the lighter surrounding tones. Tfs.

    Hi Roger

    The German tourist with his Nikon and the fg protective safely rail add depth and layering to the composition. Nice cloud patterns on the horizon. Good sharpness and superb warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and red rocks of the canyon. Tfs.

    Bonjour Pierre,

    An attractive shot of the eroded rock arches and slightly isolated islet. The small yellow flowers and yellow green grass contrast well against the blue sea and sky. Good sharpness and framing and the pedestrian walkway adds lead in lines and perspective. Tfs.

    Hi Francesco

    Impeccable density levels that have given punchy light contrasts and perfectly exposed highlights and solid blacks, along with ideal saturation. Good sharpness and framing. The yellow green plants in sunlight contrast well against the dark blue bg sky. Tfs.

    Hi Roger

    I also took some shots at Mather Point and posted them to TE. A spectacular part of the world and well worth the 17 hour flight across the Pacific from Australia. There might be quicker more direct flights but I stopped over in Hawaii on the way back. The red and blue colors give a tremendous warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs.

    Hello Silvio,

    The fog adds mood and atmosphere and I like how the fourteenth century castle pokes up above the mist and fog. Good sharpness and the red turrets contrast well against the grey blue clouds and mist. Tfs.

    Hello Beverley

    Clean energy such as wind or solar is infinitely preferable to nuclear or coal fired power station. Nice repetition of the turbines on the horizon and good reflections of the blue skylight in the tidal channels. The people animate the scene and add scale to the beach. The fg bushes wonderfully frame the bg scene. Tfs.

    Hello Malgo,

    Fantastic. It makes me want to book a ticket to South America. The catwalk above the turbulent river leading to a precipitous lookout add great lead in lines and the tourists add scale. Amazing repetition of the waterfalls. The fg branches add depth and framing. Tfs.

    Hello Gerrit,

    The 2 couples on the beach animate the scene and provide scale. The king tide mark with its debris of decaying coconut shells, husks, bottle tops and even a green coconut tell us the weather and beach are not always ideal. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. Tfs.

    Hi Ike.

    Wonderful symmetrical reflections in the mirror like surface of the water with good sharpness and saturation. I like the yellow kayak at top right adding a splash of warm color to contrast agaisnt the blue. The rippled effect in the water enhances the scene. Tfs.

    Good sharpness and a wonderful warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue hour sky and the yellow illuminated wall. Good repetition of the cross designs on the same wall which also adds deep perspective and lead in lines towards the back. Tfs.

    Bonjour Ghislaine!

    They chased me out of the fort at blue hour but I got some nice shots of this iconic Lisbon bridge anyway. The illuminated Christ statue in the distance on the opposite shore is very similar in style to the one in Rio. Nice reflections in the water and the warm orange colours add mood and ambiance. Tfs.

    Hi Eleu

    A superb decisive moment catching the last short moments of the setting sun. Good sharpness and I like the saturated sunset colours of orange in the sky contrasting against the blue sea. The distant boat makes a good focal point. Tfs.
