    Hello Bulent,

    The old Spanish galleon replica is clearly visible through the protective glass window. Good sharpness and reflections are not too worrisome. Excellent sharpness and the museum indeed looks worthy of a visit. Tfs!

    Hello Luciano,

    The icebergs certainly rule out any chance of swimming in the lake. I think I will stick to the Mediterranean or find one of those hot thermal pools that Iceland is famous for. Good sharpness and framing as always. Tfs!

    Hello Paul,

    I like the repetition of the kites in the sky and the warm cold color contrasts between the orange and blue tints. The people add scale and animate the scene. Tfs!

    Hi Silvio,

    I like the reflection in the shiny stones of the piazza in front of the church. Such a huge pity about the earthquake damage and devastation but I am glad Norcia dodged a bullet.

    Excellent graphism of contrasting dark and light tones with superb use of differential focus to isolate and emphasise selected areas of the image. The 3 fg Muslim girls are well framed too. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen,

    It looks like a b&w version of the old Led Zeppelin album cover for Physical Graffiti. Good sharpness and well spotted rule of thirds in both vertical and horizontal planes. Tfs!

    It seems to have a red yellow color cast rather than oversaturation. I might try a workshop. Well composed with good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    The clump of exploding fireworks does indeed resemble a grove of palm trees either on a desert island or at an oasis in the Sahara. Good color and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Gert

    Lol at the juxtaposing of the ancient Viking image aboard the modern and less interesting super passenger liner. I caught one from Stockholm to Helsinki and Swedes were frantically buying as much duty free beer as they could! Good sharpness & graphism. Tfs!
