    Hello Murat,
    Fine long perspective up this exhibition ramp. I like the contrast between the warmly toned flooring and the cool blue walls.

    Hello Malgo,
    The ladies in their colourful traditional costumes make an excellent focal point and set the tone in more ways than one. They make a fine counterpoint for the pagoda to be seen in the background.

    Hello Lars,
    Interesting well framed composition with these three distinctive man made shapes. The artwork with its vivid red paintwork makes an eye-catching focal point and sits well against lovely blue sky. The people admiring it supply scale.

    Hello Cricri,
    The statue in classical style makes an excellent focal point and is nicely framed here by the background parterres. Good colours and clarity despite the inhospitable sky.

    Hello John,
    The game sounds similar to petanque or boules played in France with round balls. Your composition nicely captures the action. I like the pleasant lights and colours and the excellent sharpness. There is also a winter sport played on ice called curling and very popular in Scotland amongst other places.

    Hello Carlo,
    Umbrellas now seem to used quite a lot as street decorations. They help brighten streets up and provide shelter in the event of rain and/or shade from the sun. Excellent perspective along the length of this attractive street. Very good management of the light and shadow contrasts. The people animate the scene and contribute to the mood.

    Hello Philippe,
    A very impressive castle with many tales to relate one imagines. I like the composition and the framing offered by the gently flowing river and its lovely reflections. Agreeable lights and natural tones; excellent clarity. Superb rendering of the textural detail.

    This weather-worn shrine nicely framed by the foliage makes for an interesting study in colour and texture. Very good technical quality.

    Hello Gert,

    The best lasagna I ever had was in Czech Republic. It had a creamy mushroom sauce topping. Anyway the restaurants here reminded me of my 3 month sojourn there. Italian cuisine is deservedly very popular. This town was a bit too far north of me for a daytrip though. Good framing and symmetry. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe,

    Nice reflections with excellent sharpness and vibrant color and saturation. The red roof of the castle contrasts well against the blue sky. The swans add charm. Tfs!

    Hello Gert,
    It is true that Italian food can be found virtually anywhere in the world. Although nothing special, this is in fact a very interesting composition for the reasons you have already noted and is certainly worth a second glance. Excellent technical quality.
    The grey splodge in my composition is down to some water spots on the filter. Something I didn't realise until I got home and saw the images. Some were easy to correct others were not as is the case here.

    The reflections are truly delightful. I also like the overall ambient light and the vivid colours of the fishing boats. Excellent composition with an agreeable balance to it.

    A very agreeable landscape composition. Well composed with appealing lights and colours and good sharpness. The track stretching far into the distance nicely divides the two halves of the image with their contrasting warm/cool tones.

    Hello Nicolas,
    It's an elegant composition, well spotted and perfectly timed. You captured the bird with perfect sharpness and exposure and placed it well in the upper corner. The tree is also eye-catching and provides a fine balance to the bird.

    Hello Krzysztof,
    It is a simple shrine and it looks like it has been neglected for many years. But in spite of the faded colours it still keeps the dignity of the pious people who once erected it. You spotted it well, the photo is sharp and the leaves provided a useful frame.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
