    Ciao Angel,

    The flowering purple jacarandas remind me of October in east coast Australia when they are in full bloom there. They look equally lovely in Spain at the opposite time of year. The colourful, ubiquitous oleander trees enhance the effect. Good sharpness and density levels. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen,

    The red roof and spire of the old stone cathedral contrast splendidly against the blue sky to give a superb warm vs cold colour contrast. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts, and it seems you struck a day with no rain or cloud which is nearly always a bonus! Tfs!

    Hello Cagla,

    I never knew of the existence this mermaid although I've seen the ones in Copenhagen and Warsaw. I have been to Marmaris and Dalaman as well as Fethiye but don't recall hearing or seeing anything at all about it, although here it is, large as life! Tfs!

    Hello Miguel,

    The red brick facde of the building contrasts superbly against the cyan trim around the windows and door. The woman adds scale and graphism against the dark interior and doorway. Good sharpness and density levels. Tfs!

    Hello Carlo,

    I know this spot thanks to Malgo! Nice reflection in the fg fountain which I seem to recall was bone dry when I was there in August. The red and yellow facades of the reconstructed buildings contrast well against the blue skylight in the water. Tfs!

    Nice symmetrical reflections in the mirror like surface of the water with good density levels and superb sharpness. Excellent color and saturation. I like the puffy cloud at right and the strip of green. Well composed with the horizon offset from the centre. Tfs!

    A fine cross river view of this elegant bridge spanning the river. Good diminishing linear perspective leading the eye towards the Church of Saint John the Baptist in the distance nicely positioned at the vanishing point. Tfs!

    Hello JJ,

    The diagonal stream cutting across the image nicely bisects it into 2 equal parts and also adds good dynamism. Excellent textural contrasts with the subtle green colour of he water adding interest. The gradation to blue at the top is nice. Tfs!

    Missed this one. I like the blue skylight reflections in the almost still tidal pool in the fg. The dark rocks add a nice graphic element. Good sharpness and saturation and the distant lighthouse makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Dwaipayan,

    A marvellous rich blue sky typical of these high altitudes. The temple makes a good focal point and the people add scale and context. I like the jagged snow capped peak on the horizon at left. Reminds me of Kanchenjunga near Darj. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre,

    Much better sharpness here than in the preceding upload with a pleasant diffused light and excellent colour and saturation. I like the warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue grey roof and the re brick support pillars. The green hedge on a diagonal adds dynamism and perspective. Tfs!

    Nice reflections of the clouds and patches of blue sky in the shiny surface of the high rise building. Good sharpness and a fine upward pov. Perspective has been well managed and I like the repetition of the curves within the architecture. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    I flew Turkish Airlines from Bangkok to Istanbul. There were okay but not as good as the Thai Airways flight from Australia to Bkk, imho. A good comparison here between an upward underbelly view and a more profiled shot. The tilt adds dynamism to both images which compliment each other nicely. Tfs!
