    Hi Wolfgang

    The raw power of the horses is evident here with the 2 men obviously straining to contain them. The term horsepower is not without solid foundation! Good sharpness and natural looking color. Well framed and composed with good breathing space. Tfs.

    Hello Wolfgang

    Austria came high up in the top 10 countries in the world to live in, with safety, high quality of life and leisure activities such as this man fishing. Good composition and a minimalist creation with just the 2 boats on the water. Excellent sharpness too. Tfs.

    Missed this one. A simple nature shot of the aerial perspective of the receding tones of the bg hills. Good sharpness and excellent framing and composition. I like the elevated vantage point. Smart use of the clouds as a natural filter with nice warm cold color contrasts between the orange yellow and blue. Tfs.

    Hi Piotr

    Lodz looks worthy of a visit, although it is not as well known as Krakow and Wroclaw. Good sharpness and perspective and the rounded dome of the bg building contrasts well against the black triangular witches hat shapes to its left. The shimmering glass mosaic wall add interest to the fg. Tfs.

    Hi Jean,

    A pleasant diffused light with good sharpness and excellent framing and composition. I like the hedge maze at right. Looks like there was something in the empty space at left too. I like the high pov and excellent sharpness. A fine looking manor house, for sure. Tfs!

    Hello Alexandre

    Now thats a primitive camera! Havent seen one of them in nearly 30 years! Must be uncomfortable in the hot weather to stick your head under the black out covers, too. An apt upload for photo day! Nice textural details in the rough uneven flagstones. Tfs.

    Hello Ike,

    The early morning would explain the lack of crowds but has offered an unobstructed view of the reflection. Good sharpness and the parked bikes at right add interest. Nice repetition of the cyan crash barriers at left. Good shadow detail too. Tfs.

    Hello Christian,

    The long curving breakwater adds deep lead in lines and linear perspective. Good sharpness and the repetition of the moored boats in the marina contrast with the random boats in the outer bay. Nice sharpness and a good high pov. Tfs.

    Bonjour Serge,

    Missed this one. A superb high pov offering an expansive overview of the city. The yellow green fg tree contrasts well against the blue grey sky and river. The older architecture in the fg contrasts well against the starker but less interesting high rise bg buildings. Tfs.

    Ciao Pierre

    Looks similar to some of the superb Lithuanian museum tapestry exhibits I saw last year. Goo warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue tones. The person at left adds scale. The fg basket of flowers adds depth color and layering. Tfs.

    Hello Ike,

    The rower and kayak make a superb focal point. Good sharpness and excellent reflections in the rippled surface of the water. The yellow kayak contrasts well against the blue water. The ducks are a definite bonus. And I see Australian eucalypts on the riverbank! Tfs.

    Bonjour Stephen

    A nice graphic effect from the black and white half timbered houses. Good sharpness and shadow detail. Nice fg textural details in the cobblestones. The purple flowers add a splash of color and I can understand the no right turn sign into the driveway, with speeding drivers at night. Tfs.

    Hello Gert

    A superb daily life scene from Brno, a town I visited last June but on business without a camera. I must go back there one day as a tourist. Nice use of selective focus to isolate and emphasise the fg people in the crowd. Tfs.

    Hello Nicolas,

    The fg of out of focus yellow flowers adds depth, framing and a nice warm cold color contrast against the blue tones. A tremendous high vantage point overlooking the lake and fantastic sharpness and framing. Tfs.

    Hello Silvio,

    The aisle adds strong lead in lines and its diagonal axis provides dynamism. The solitary woman in the front animates the scene. Good sharpness and amazingly ornate artwork and decorations inside the church. Tfs.

    Hello Klaudio

    I have no complaints about Turkish food, especially the dried figs, the olives, and fresh unrefined bread. What is Iranian confectionery like? Turks do that well too. A sumptuous looking meal with the addition of the saffron rice which needs more water than Turkey can spare. Tfs.

    Hi Ray

    The partial desaturation of the bg has shifted attention to the fg spur retaining its red color. Good sharpness and hopefully Isis won't blow up this temple anytime soon. Excellent tonal and textural contrasts. Tfs.

    Hi Zbigniew

    The lampposts nicely frame the bg cupola of the imposing Italian renaissance styled building which at first reminded me of the capitol building in Washington DC. Good sharpness and I vaguely remember seeing this building enroute to someplace else in Bangkok. Tfs.

    Hi Paul,

    A stunning view of Santiago and the smog shrouded Andes. But at least the sky is blue and the mountains are visible, unlike China and India where the skies are white and it is only possible to see a few hundred, rather than thousand, metres. The palm leaf adds depth and framing. Tfs.
