    Bonjour Serge,

    The rooster atop the spire adds charm and the colorful flower boxes add a welcome splash of color. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The fg bridge adds depth and layering and the 2 people provide scale. Tfs!

    Hello Gert,

    Until I scrolled down and saw the Arabic looking bas-relief text at the bottom I would have suggested a few steps to the right to separate the tree from the bg tower, but then that would cut the text in half. So you made the right decision framing this. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    Smart choice of a vertical format with good sharpness overall. The three central vertical poplar trees try hard to compete with the high rise building and almost succeed. Tfs!

    Hello Pavle,

    I like the dappled light and the textural and tonal variations within the wall. Good sharpness and the no parking sign colors of bright red and blue are eye catching. Tfs!

    Hi Stephen,

    Effective tight framing on the half timbered dwelling with excellent color and sharpness. A pleasant diffused light and an interesting subject. The reddish brown door with its warm colours contrasts well with the cooler bluish hues. Tfs!

    Hi Daniel,

    Reminds me of some of the arcades I saw in Italy. Or the one in Bucharest a Romanian friend showed me. Good sharpness and well managed backlight. The catwalk forming a bridge makes an obvious focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio

    Excellent shadow detail despite the harsh backlight. The brilliant blue sky with its wispy clouds makes a marvellous backdrop to the clocktower. A good upward pov and well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    Nice to see a thickly wooded stream bank in such a densely populated country. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the trees with excellent reflections in the water. The fg branches add depth yet still allow a glimpse of the bg. Tfs!

    Hi Jorge

    I drove past the turnoff to the Jordanian side on my way to and from the Dead Sea in Jordan. An interesting post of one of the first if not the first baptism sites. Good lighting, sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Hello Ike

    Good timing to catch this fast moving bird in a stationery pose. Its iridescent plumage is eye catching. Excellent sharpness and the bird seems disappointed that the shrub is neither flowering nor providing ripened fruit. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    The red and white flag with the cross seems to be a St George Flag from England so perhaps an early missionary? They had wigwams at Yosemite so its nice to see other styles of native American dwellings. Tfs!

    Hello Abmdsudi,

    There is still enough shadow detail to make out the desolate desert landscape. A spectacular sunset with excellent colour & saturation. Good to include the magenta disc of the sun at right. Tfs!

    Hi Craig,

    I like Gert's shot of plan B, if plan A is unavailable. The blue & white Azulejo tiles adorning the church are magnificent. The blue sky backdrop reinforces the effect. Tfs!

    The lichen and moss encrusted tree at right nicely frames the 2 fisherman on the shoreline. Good sharpness and nice textural details in the bark. The red fabridam barrage structure adds depth and layering to the composition. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    The thumbnail doesn't do this shot justice. It's not until you open it that you see the starburst yellow sun streaming rays through the mountain peak. Good sharpness and excellent framing and composition. Tfs!

    The threatening rain and storm clouds in the sky seem set to send the last of the al fresco diners in the street indoors. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Good sharpness and another fine entry in this street parade of giant puppets. I like the fg shadow play and the repetitive patterns in the street tiles as well as their diagonal axis. Tfs!
