    Hi Murat,

    Nice symmetrical reflections with good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. The curved yellow partition in the ceiling adds a good warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

    Hello Piotr,

    The brown man-made corner of the cliff cave resembles an iron wall. Good sharpness and a nice angled pov. The conical roof of the church at right adds a focal point. Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    I have been here in 2013 so it's nice to see a reminder of my very rushed trip around Brighton and London before heading off to Amsterdam. The inside of the Royal Pavilion is also worth the price of the entry ticket. Good sharpness and diffused light. Tfs!

    Hi Craig

    The square format works okay here but perhaps a vertical frame to capture the top of the cut spire? If the white sky was a problem I would have burnt it in. White tones tend to draw the eye first but it is relatively easy to darken it in photoshop. Good sharpness and tonal range. Tfs!

    Hi Pavle,

    Nice reflections of the green grass and the pigeons in the wet street. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. I like the square format and the repeating ripples in the water. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    It's always great to see quality graffiti like this that leaves the simple & rather ugly tagging far behind. This image demonstrates artistic ability that is something sadly lacking in many streets. Seville and Veliko Tarnovo are about the best cities I have seen for this genre. Tfs!

    Hello Abmdsudi,

    I am not sure if I could handle the high altitude but this looks like an idyllic Shangrila type of place to visit. Nice repetition of the black coated yaks or cattle that add repetition and a nice graphic element contrasting with the snow capped peaks. Tfs!

    Salut Pavle,

    It looks like a simple but delicious meal. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. I like the diffused light. I had a comment from a professional food photographer to try and get down at eye level with the table when I loaded a similar shot. Sometimes it gives a more dramatic image. But this is fine. Tfs!

    Hi dear Malgo,

    I read with concern about a terrorist attack on a police station in Almaty so it's good to see you still posting. Amazing repetition of the green undulating hills with good sharpness. The bend in the river adds lead in lines. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    An unusual rock formation and sea arch with the crashing fg wave adding drama to the scene. Excellent sharpness and well framed and composed. A couple of dust bunnies in the sky I would have blurred. I am now in the habit of cleaning the image sensor before shooting. Tfs!

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    Good timing to get the horses in the best possible position in the frame with plenty of space at left to move into. Excellent sharpness and I like the graphism of the white horses in sunlight against the shadowed bg wall. Tfs!

    The huge moon looks like it is rolling down the hill and reminds me of the old Cat Stevens Moon-shadow videoclip. Wonderful warm cold color contrasts with good sharpness. Tfs!

    I might have cropped some of the fg to get a more wide angled, panoramic shot but sharpness and color saturation are excellent. I like the warm cold color contrast between the red roofs and blue sky. Tfs!

    Ciao Lisa.

    Hey did you see the Italian restaurant in New Mexico that was advertising 'black olives matter!' in one of it billboard promotion sales? Some people took it the wrong way when it was only intended as an amusing diversion from the far more serious issues going on in the US at the moment. Australia too has its problems and for sure a lot more could be done to improve the situation. Tfs!

    Hello Mariusz,

    It looks to be a perfectly safe swimming beach for children and totally devoid of strong currents and deep channels. Good sharpness and a nice high pov overlooking the diagonal curve of the bay. Tfs!
