    Hello Didi,

    Wonderful symmetrical reflections with perfect density levels and good saturation and sharpness. The mirror like surface of the water reflected the boat in almost every detail. A wonderful blue sky and good lighting and framing. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    Wonderful sunset using the highrise buildings to frame the glowing fireball. Good graphism and silhouettes with nice repetition of the rectangular shapes and superb sharpness and shadow detail. The horizontal layer of grey then orange then dark grey and black perfectly match the rule of thirds. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    Amazing repetition of the watermelons with good sharpness and a wonderful high pov looking down at the piazza. The people add scale & animate the scene. Colourful and well saturated. The colourful tile mosaic patterns add interest. Tfs!

    Another entry for the staircases theme! Nice upward pov with good sharpness & excellent graphism of the dark hand rails. Good repetition of the square patterns and shapes. The yellow tan colour bg works well here. Tfs!

    Hi Danos.
    Wonderful image, which mesmerizes us with its beauty, with this orange dominant, sea and sky, the sun disc looks great, the anchored boats are an ideal complement, an image that conveys peace and calm.

    Well done.
    Have a nice day.

    Hola amigo Angel.
    Imposible pasar de largo, sin fotografiar esta espectacular casa, que con su suave azul, las vigas de entramado y la cantidad de flores, es una de las que mas luce, en la calle principal de Riquewhir, yo claro tambien la hice... te ha quedado sensacional, con esta perspectiva sobre las dos fachadas.
    Nitidez, exposición, color, el POV elegido, y la magnifica composición, son todos factores que me han gustado en esta preciosa imagen.
    Muy buen trabajo.
    Que tengas una buena semana.
    Un abrazo.
    Luis.

    Hello Mariusz.
    A sensational POV, with the beach dying at the foot of the cliff, which gives a nice perspective to the image, with its penetration into the sea, the golden ruined by the sun, on top of them, it is a great complement , like this beautiful cloud sky.
    Sharpness, exposure, color, chosen POV and the magnificent composition are all factors that I liked in this beautiful image.
    Well done.
    Have a nice day.

    Salut Christiane.
    Une image merveilleuse du coucher de soleil sur la plage, beau ciel, avec le soleil très proche maintenant, la ligne marquée par l'horizon de la mer., Le couple sur la plage donne une impression de sérénité et de tranquillité, cette fois comme de la magie .
    Netteté, l'exposition, la couleur, POV choisi et la composition magnifique sont tous des facteurs que j'ai aimé dans cette belle image.
    Bravo.
    Bonne journée.
    Salutations.

    Bonjour Philippe

    The dual sides of the fg path add good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and lead the eye back towards the attractive chateau. Good sharpness and natural looking colour. The pinkish red facade contrasts superbly against the bg blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Jean Jacques

    Punchy light contrasts with excellent graphism & superb sharpness with the dark cross hatch beams adding both repetition and an interesting backdrop to the fg street lamp. The warm bronze colour contrasts well against the blue grey hues. Merci pour ce partage.

    Une étonnante macro de cette chenille qui défie les lois de la gravité. Les détails sont bien nets. Etrange nourriture que des feuilles d'avocats qui d'ordinaire sont des factures.

    Hello Daniel,

    This is one of those shots that looks amazing even on the thumbnail!
    It is a strong composition which works beautifully, defining the orientation of lines and shapes in a most artistic and flowing way.

    Hello Burak

    I might have cropped a little from the top but I love the flattened perspective from the zoom and the superb sharpness. The people add scale and shadow detail is excellent. Love the tiny French flag way back in the distance. Tfs!

    Ciao Caro Carlo,

    I am having to critique your photograph from the Beta site as, for some unknown reason, the main photograph will post on screen!
    It matters not that others may have posted this location, each photographer imposes his own style, and light, season, weather will all interact to make the shot original.
    The houses are colourful, with their own particular roof details. You have been able to detail the wall patterns, too, which are very interesting. I wonder how they were done!
    The steps make a very effective lead, giving contrasts of shadow and sunlight.
    I do find it sad that in such a beautiful place, someone has daubed graffiti on the walls!

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Maria

    I might have to change hotels tomorrow as internet is limited here at best. Keeps dropping out. Good sharpness and nice warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and the reddish lighting on the St Basil cathedral. Nice repetition of the onion domed cupolas. Tfs!

    Hello Christiane,

    I have never seen a wall that created such a 'moving' impact, before. It competes with the natural corridor, drawing attention into its supposed opening, before realisation occurs and attention reverts to the converging lines of the corridor and its ultimate opening.
    A very well composed shot showing great light control.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Luciano,

    Your photograph of Mahon with, its colourful residences and regular, cuboid shapes, reminds me very much of a toy-town. Only the church deviates from the plan with its cylindrical tower and arch shaped windows.
    You have captured the details most succinctly, with colours that are bright and cheerful. You have good lead lines and the inclusion of figures which are most important in determining scale.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Claude,

    What I like about this shot, besides the simplicity of the machine against the blue b/g, is the range of expressions that you have captured. Some appear to be thrilled, others quite terrified! I would be in the latter group! For me, this would cross the boundaries of fun, into the realm of terror!
    It is amazingly sharp for such a fast moving shot!

    Kind regards,

    Bonsoir, Serge,

    These instruments could very easily be in an agricultural museum for it would seem that they are no longer useful. However, they do make an interesting shot for you. The textures and the shapes are well captured details and I do like how you have composed the implement on a diagonal line.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)
