    Salut Nicolas,

    The orange streak in the sunset skies at right contrasts superbly against the grey blue portions of the sky at left. Beautiful snow-capped peaks which make a majestic backdrop. Superb shadow detail despite the back-light. Nice simple aerial perspective too with just 2 layers. Tfs!

    A good decisive moment shot catching the fleeting moment where the water is splashed by the boy frolicking on the beach. Nice reflections in the wet sand with superb sharpness and color saturation. I like the clarity of the water and the reflections off it. Tfs!

    Hello Sasha,

    They look delicious. Can I have them all? I like the negative like table cloth which echoes the cherry pattern in reverse with white circles on a red bg. Good light reflections off the shiny cherries. The neutral grey wall makes a fine bg. Tfs!

    Bonjour, JJ

    I like the photographer at left seated on the steps for a low shooting angle on his bg friends. Good tonal range and graphism with amazing repetition of geometric patterns, shapes and designs. Excellent sharpness and well composed. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    The yellow is certainly eye-catching and contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the diagonal roads provides both dynamism and strong lead in lines and perspective. The red bg skyscraper enhances the effect. Tfs!

    Another image where there is a subtle warm cold color contrasts btween the pale red seaweed or grass dried on the shore and the blue grey sky and water. Good sharpness and the town at right adds a reference point and centre of interest. Tfs!

    Hello Nevyan

    I like how the rectangular hole in the building frames the view of another building across the street. Punchy light contrasts with great colour, saturation and sharpness. Nice reflections in the fg window of the skyscraper. Excellent repetition of geometric patterns and shapes. Tfs!

    Hello Neyvan

    The art decco or is it rococo style is certainly eyecatching. A nice warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and pale yellow hued building. The palm trees add a welcome splash of green. The building vaguely resembles a lighthouse. Tfs!

    Hi Ana

    I like the pine cone and conifer branches at left illuminated by the lamp. Excellent textural details with good sharpness considering this is a nocturnal shot. I like the arched cover over the lamp. The yellow light contrasts well against the blue grey shadows. Tfs!

    And some good memories from this lookout over the old market square for me too! The people look like ants from this high up. Good sharpness and realistic colour perfectly saturated. I like the subtle pastel sunset colors on the horizon. Tfs!

    Good graphic elements of darks vs lights, enhanced by the white snow. Excellent sharpness and soft pastel colors. Good textural details in the fg snow. The solitary person walking along the well trodden path through the snow animates the shot. Tfs!

    Hello Georg,

    Another post processed image with the look of a watercolor painting. I like the splash of color from the red flowering tree and yellow flowering tree across the street. The sweeping curve of the tram track adds superb lead in lines and perspective. Nice placement of the vertical lines centrally. Tfs!

    This iconic bridge was on my bucket list in a short day or 2 in London before leaving for Amsterdam. Impeccable sharpness and nice reflections in the Thames. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue light and warm coppery reds. Tfs!

    Hello Tomek,

    A superb upward pov on the tower with good sharpness and a soft green tint presumably from the outdoor fluorescent lighting. Good sharpness and the 2 circular clock-faces lit in yellow orange stand out well. There appears to be some light fog too as the top is becoming hazy. Tfs!

    Superb warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the yellow red illuminated stone walls of the house. Good sharpness and excellent tight framing. Good color saturation and marvellous density levels that have given punchy light contrasts. Tfs!

    Hi Angel,

    The dark rocky outcrops in the fg nicely frame the brightly lit sunny beach in the bg. The people add scale and animate the scene. Good warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the warm reddish brown sand. Nice reflections in the tidal rock pools. Tfs!

    Ciao Romano,

    That is quite a masterfully created bronze sculpture. Amazing detail with good sharpness and fine textural details. The cyan verdigris contrasts well against the reddish brown hued bronze. An effective tight frame with a nice neutral grey wall backdrop. Tfs!

    Hi Serghei,

    I only spent 10 minutes in LA and was off again to Yosemite after a bus from Tucson. Love the deadbeat sign in the bg. It adds a whimsical touch. A bright sunny day devoid of the choking smog LA used to infamous for. A crowded street for sure and colorful and sharp. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe

    Nice wildlife shot of the two sparrows. Superb use of a shallow dof with excellent sharpness and good shadow detail. Backlight has been well managed. Good to have a reflection in the eye of the bird at left. A nice splash of sunlight on the back of the bird at right. Tfs!

    Hello Satya

    I like the repetition of the colorful flutes and their mass, resembling a straw broom. A superb daily life scene from India with good sharpness. I like the improvised use of masking tape! Good color and saturation. Tfs!
