    Hello Jean,

    I like the lichen encrusted stone balustrades and the leafy fg garden. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The purple flowers at right add a welcome splash of color. The barred windows suggest theft or vandalism was a problem? Tfs!

    Hi Jorge

    Good sharpness and a reasonable tonal range. The bearded old man resting on the pillar makes perfect focal point. Good sharpness and nice graphism of the dark suited gent against the lighter toned background. Tfs!

    Hi Paul

    The colorful purple bougainvillea nicely frames the indented bays of the reservoir far below. Good sharpness and the lakeside cottages add scale. Excellent framing & composition. Tfs!

    Hi Brenda

    Effective tight framing with good control over perspective & lens barrel distortion. The dark lamp post neatly bisects the image and the green tree softens the harsh man-made environment. Tfs!

    I like the high vantage point overlooking the red rooftops. Nice repetition of the tile patterns and the yellow and red colors set up a nice warm cold colour contrast. Super sharpness and distant green fields and blue hills add depth and layering to the composition. Tfs!

    Hello Christiane,

    The bright red sun sails contrast well with the overall blue grey tones to give an excellent warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and the girl trying to climb on to the football sculpture adds a focal point. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre,

    Apparently these false eye pattern designs trick and confuse predators such as snakes, lizards and birds. Sometimes the bright colors send out a warning that they are toxic. Anyway superb sharpness and dof with an informative note. Tfs!

    Hi Sven

    Good sharpness with wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the red roofs and the blue sky. I might have blurred the sky to hide the grain. Superb density levels and punchy light contrasts. Tfs!

    I spent a couple of days in Genoa but don't recall this grand Arch. It nicely frames the bg city. Don't know much about Italian involvement in WW1. I will have to look it up. Tfs!

    With the many golden cupolas and turrets this church looks a little bit like an orthodox Russian church. Good sharpness and well framed and composed, with natural looking color and a wonderful forested setting against the bg hillside. Tfs!
