    Bonjour Stephen

    A nice graphic effect from the black and white half timbered houses. Good sharpness and shadow detail. Nice fg textural details in the cobblestones. The purple flowers add a splash of color and I can understand the no right turn sign into the driveway, with speeding drivers at night. Tfs.

    Hello Gert

    A superb daily life scene from Brno, a town I visited last June but on business without a camera. I must go back there one day as a tourist. Nice use of selective focus to isolate and emphasise the fg people in the crowd. Tfs.

    Hello Nicolas,

    The fg of out of focus yellow flowers adds depth, framing and a nice warm cold color contrast against the blue tones. A tremendous high vantage point overlooking the lake and fantastic sharpness and framing. Tfs.

    Hello Silvio,

    The aisle adds strong lead in lines and its diagonal axis provides dynamism. The solitary woman in the front animates the scene. Good sharpness and amazingly ornate artwork and decorations inside the church. Tfs.

    Hello Klaudio

    I have no complaints about Turkish food, especially the dried figs, the olives, and fresh unrefined bread. What is Iranian confectionery like? Turks do that well too. A sumptuous looking meal with the addition of the saffron rice which needs more water than Turkey can spare. Tfs.

    Hi Ray

    The partial desaturation of the bg has shifted attention to the fg spur retaining its red color. Good sharpness and hopefully Isis won't blow up this temple anytime soon. Excellent tonal and textural contrasts. Tfs.

    Hi Zbigniew
    \
    The lampposts nicely frame the bg cupola of the imposing Italian renaissance styled building which at first reminded me of the capitol building in Washington DC. Good sharpness and I vaguely remember seeing this building enroute to someplace else in Bangkok. Tfs.

    Hi Paul,

    A stunning view of Santiago and the smog shrouded Andes. But at least the sky is blue and the mountains are visible, unlike China and India where the skies are white and it is only possible to see a few hundred, rather than thousand, metres. The palm leaf adds depth and framing. Tfs.

    Hello Kari

    The steep triangular rock at right is reminiscent of Balls Pyramid near Lord Howe Island, which I flew over on the way to New Zealand many years ago. Amazing repetition of the geometric patterns formed by the hexagonal basalt. The lone person on the beach animates the scene and provides scale. Tfs.

    Hi Ike

    Looks like the Yarra River in central Melbourne, Australia! Good sharpness with nice reflections in the water. The tapering sides of the river add natural perspective and lead in lines towards the back. The rowers in red contrast well against the blue water. Tfs.

    Hello, Eleu!

    A fantastic shot of the colorful hot air balloons. It was a thrill for me to go up in one of them in Goreme, Turkey. Good sharpness and the hot colors of the balloons contrast well against the dark navy blue sky. Tfs.

    An interesting mix of architectural styles ranging from art deco to 21st century sleek and futuristic. Subtle reflections of the skyscrapers in the fg blue water. Good sharpness throughout and amazing repetition of the geometric patterns and shapes, especially the windows. Tfs.

    Hi Ourania,

    Attractive pastel colors with good sharpness and nice repetition of the traditional old Greek windmills. The diagonal wall with the whitewashed top adds strong lead in lines towards the back. The red doors and windows contrast well against the pale blue sky. Tfs

    Hi JJ,

    Intereting symmetrical reflections framed within the 2 windows. I like their distortion which contrasts well against the smooth and regular staright lines of the window frames. Good color and saturation with superb sharpness. Tfs.

    Hoping to see this later in the year. Good warm cold color contrasts between the Saharan blue sky and yellow red earth and sand. An interesting contrast in textures between the near and far pyramid. Tfs.
