    Hi Kari

    The yellow red and blue colors provide a good warm cold color contrast and what a novel way to recycle old scrap metal! Excellent sharpness and nice graphism of the darker colors against the bg white wall. Tfs!

    Hi Luis

    I have a similar shot in my gallery of this magnificent cathedral in central Helsinki. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with adequate breathing space and no wasted negative space. Tfs!

    A fantastic late afternoon shot of these jagged peaks bathed in a warm golden light, that contrasts so effectively with the backdrop of blue sky. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

    Hi Piotr,

    The pegasus statue and the male and female sculptures either side add an interesting decoration to the facade of this theatre. Good sharpness and a nice blue sky backdrop. Tfs!

    Ciao Murat,

    Good sharpness and the wide angled perspective has been well managed placing the vertical lines centrally. The red brown floor contrasts well with the blue cyan wall as does the gold decorations on the ship's bow. Tfs!

    Hello Brenda,

    I saw a similar section of the old Berlin wall in Seoul, Sth Korea. What struck me was the contrast between the colorful western side seen here and the stark white eastern side with bullet holes, where people had tried to flee the repressive east German regime. Tfs.

    Hello Craig

    The man walking along the retaining wall was much easier to spot than Gert's 15th white pigeon, lol. The red graffiti figure sets up a great warm cold color contrast with the blue tones and the dramatic backdrop of mountains looks impressive. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    I am glad you got to see these and glad there were no earthquakes in the areas you were. I've been there twice and this is a good symmetrical capture of the 3 pagodas. Tfs!

    Hello Lars,

    Seattle is still an attractive city and high on the list of desirable US cities, but I still think Vancouver and Victoria are prettier towns with less threatening risks of volcanoes and earthquakes and tsunamis. Anyway, good sharpness and framing. The man in the boat adds interest. Tfs!

    I think the main highway bypassed Sacramento? I recall going from LA to Merced River to Stockton then Oakland Bay & SF. Looks like the traffic is stalled at this yellow bridge and it's faster to walk out than drive in! Tfs!

    Hello Serge,

    I was just reading today about Napoleon defeating Prussia, invading Malta and annexing Egypt to thwart Great Britain. Seems King Louis 16th was merely replaced with Emperor Napoleon. Fortunately the rest of the new ruling class saw through his plans and exiled him to Elba. Nice to see the actual chair at left where he sat. Tfs!
