    Hello John.

    Wonderful linear perspective of the rows and rows of white tulips stretching back towards the horizon. Excellent sharpness and a good dof with almost the entire immediate field in sharp focus. Only the very back and very front are in soft focus. Tfs!

    Hi Lars

    Nice symmetrical placement of the 2 windmills in the frame when composing. Good sharpness and the 3 boats on the canal adds fine focal points. Well composed using the rule of thirds with the skyline well away from the centre. Tfs!

    Ciao Ourania

    I was able to get my Nikon lens repaired cheaply in Izmir. I am sure Athens also has a Nikon branch. Perhaps Salonika too? Anyway I was wondering why many people were wandering around with lit candles the other night. The note explains it. A nice minimalist shot. Tfs. Ps, I can give you an address in Izmir.

    Hello Daniel

    I like the solitary animal grazing in the fg at right. It adds scale and contrasts well against the forest of man made towers in the distance. Good sharpness too. The field of yellow is nice. Tfs!

    Hi Murat,

    France invaded England in 1066 & did not leave until 1201. So there are many French words in the English language. William the Conqueror of Normandy defeated Harold the 1st. The Bayeaux Tapestry depicts battle scenes. And France in turn was ruled even longer by the Romans so that explains the Latin words seen here finding there way to England. Tfs!

    Ola Fabiano,

    Well composed using the rule of thirds with good sharpness. I might have added more shadows and contrast and I will check the workshop. The stone fort on the cliff adds a focal point. Tfs!

    Perspective has been well managed placing the verticals centrally. Good sharpness and the traffic island makes a fine focal point. Th dark steeple of the church at right adds a graphic element. Tfs!

    Hello, Malgo!

    Lovely rippled reflections with good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. The yellow green colour of the foliage contrasts well with the blue sky reflections. The colorful Mandarin ducks are a bonus. Tfs!

    I have visited Prague 3 times now and cannot disagree that it a magical city & one of the nicest in Europe. Good sharpness and a nice capture of the other photographers with their tripods in this fine nocturnal shot. Tfs!

    Hi Rob,

    A wonderful abstract reflection of St Paul's Cathedral albeit a little distorted in the spherical mirror like sculpture. The red buses add a great warm cold colour contrast with the blue. It looks a little like an 80's pacman! Tfs!

    The recycling of ruins is not unique to England. It happened in Greece too. And many other countries. Good sharpness, perfect density levels, nice graphism and the people add scale. Tfs!

    Hello Noel,

    An amusing shot of the unusual family pet. For a moment I thought it was trying to eat her tongue but lucky I read the note which explains it was just a piece of bread. Strong warm cold color contrasts between the blue and red with good sharpness. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    The yellow rapeseed, canola or mustard (forgive me, I am not a botanist) contrasts well with the blue sky to give a sublime warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness too. Tfs!
