    Hello Didi,

    Wonderful symmetrical reflections with perfect density levels and good saturation and sharpness. The mirror like surface of the water reflected the boat in almost every detail. A wonderful blue sky and good lighting and framing. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    Wonderful sunset using the highrise buildings to frame the glowing fireball. Good graphism and silhouettes with nice repetition of the rectangular shapes and superb sharpness and shadow detail. The horizontal layer of grey then orange then dark grey and black perfectly match the rule of thirds. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    Amazing repetition of the watermelons with good sharpness and a wonderful high pov looking down at the piazza. The people add scale & animate the scene. Colourful and well saturated. The colourful tile mosaic patterns add interest. Tfs!

    Ciao caro Carlo,

    Another entry for the staircases theme! Nice upward pov with good sharpness & excellent graphism of the dark hand rails. Good repetition of the square patterns and shapes. The yellow tan colour bg works well here. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe

    The dual sides of the fg path add good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and lead the eye back towards the attractive chateau. Good sharpness and natural looking colour. The pinkish red facade contrasts superbly against the bg blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Jean Jacques

    Punchy light contrasts with excellent graphism & superb sharpness with the dark cross hatch beams adding both repetition and an interesting backdrop to the fg street lamp. The warm bronze colour contrasts well against the blue grey hues. Merci pour ce partage.

    Hello Burak

    I might have cropped a little from the top but I love the flattened perspective from the zoom and the superb sharpness. The people add scale and shadow detail is excellent. Love the tiny French flag way back in the distance. Tfs!

    Hi Maria

    I might have to change hotels tomorrow as internet is limited here at best. Keeps dropping out. Good sharpness and nice warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and the reddish lighting on the St Basil cathedral. Nice repetition of the onion domed cupolas. Tfs!

    Ciao, Silvio,

    A superb hilltop view including the impressive buttressed fort and circular watchtower. Good sharpness and realistic colour and saturation. A marvellous blue sky and the tree at left adds a welcome splash of green. Tfs!

    Bonsoir Angel,

    I like the repetition of the window boxes filled with red and blue flowers. Good sharpness and the people add scale and animate the scene. The path provides deep perspective and nice lead in lines. Wonderful colour & saturation. Tfs!

    Hi Paul!

    Lol at the nickname! Well composed with good sharpness and density levels. Excellent colour and saturation. A lovely blue sky too. If Tokyo can do it why not Beijing which has far fewer people and motor vehicles. The fg red topped boat contrasts well against the blue water and sky and makes a good focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Ourania

    A superb high pov with well managed backlight and splendid reflections of light off the shimmering sea covered in diamonds. The curves of the bay enhance the composition and add strong lead in lines. Excellent color and saturation. Tfs!

    Hi Piotr,

    I've heard that there is nothing much to see in Lyon but judging from this image that information looks to be wrong! Good high pov with excellent sharpness and good colour and saturation. Well composed with the horizon line well placed above the centre. The cathedral looks interesting and makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Karolina

    Looks like a relaxing summer scene and the person on the board paddling out nicely breaks the repetitive pattern of the static fg bathers to add contrast. Good sharpness and a nice warm cold color contrast between the reddish yellow sand and the blue water. Tfs!

    Yes golf by candle or torch light doesnt sound like a good prospect. Good sunset with excellent graphism and silhouettes of the fg grasses. Nice warm cold colour contrasts and superb saturation & framing using the rule of thirds. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    I like the semi abstract look and feel of this tightly cropped image. Good reflections with the ripples adding interest. The green at the top and the 3 vertical shapes reachig deep down into the image from the top add balance to the compo and follow the rule of thirds. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    Love the super saturation and brilliant Autumn lighting here. The high pov gives an expansive view out over the lake and the power lines at right have been skilfully merged with the vegetation rather than outlined against the sky. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    The zig zags and curves add nice lead in lines and repetitive motifs. The fog adds mood, mystery and atmosphere. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The A frame bg building looks interesting. The absence of people enhance the feeling of desertion. Tfs!

    Looks almost tropical, the Amazon perhaps? Good inclusion of the jogger in blue shirt to add scale and context. The path adds nice lead in lines. Good sharpness and superbly managed backlight. I like the radiating sunbeams. Tfs!

    Hi Stephen,

    After living overseas for 8 years, I've realised that the Australia I left behind in 2006 no longer exists. I've changed too and so has my city, even more so than me. In some ways better, in some ways worse. It's just different to the way I remember it. Such is life. Well depicted here. The Pretenders song "My City Was Gone" comes to mind.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wplUBFVsbtw

    The upward pov to the dome looks great. Tfs!
