    Hello Philippe,

    Good use of a shallow dof with excellent sharpness on the small bird. The green plastic mesh object containing food is intriguing and attractive to the hungry bird. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    Smart choice of a vertical format to accentuate the height of the steeple. And allow adequate breathing space around the church. Good sharpness & density levels too. Tfs!

    Hello Gert,

    The small well cared for dog is a strong focal point in this shot. Good sharpness and the cyclist in the distance top right is another point of interest. The elderly couple in the fg park bookend the shot and add balance to the compo. Tfs!

    Hello Recep,

    I lived in Ismit for 7 months from September 2013 to March 2014 so this is very close. Good sharpness and the red and blue spiderman blow-up plastic doll adds context to the small child having a swim in the rain. Tfs!

    Hello Lars,

    I immediately thought this looks familiar. I have been there, and taken a shot or two. The twin towers of the Gothic Cathedral add symmetry. Good sharpness and a nice blue sky backdrop. Tfs!

    Hello Brenda,

    Looks like it was constructed from giant lego blocks. The tower is well placed on the vertical 1/3 axis. Excellent sharpness and framing. Good warm cold color contrasts too between the blue sky and cream beige yellow colors of the lower buildings at the bottom of the frame. Tfs!

    I spent a night here before heading off to Meteora. Good lighting and sharpness with splendid scale provided by the throngs of tourists. The bg mountain with its own cloud is a nice addition. Tfs!

    Hi Ike

    I like the three dominant layers here with the red telephone box and Scoobydoos & Hijinks also in hot colors, then the Flemish or Dutch style of roof on the stone 4 story buildings and finally the castle at the back and top. Tfs!

    Hi Jorge,

    I am fairly certain I have been up inside the monastery at right in the distance. Meteora is without doubt an incredible place and looks good in just about any weather condition. The fg pillar rock adds depth and layering. The suspended mist adds mood. Tfs!

    Hello Murat!

    Good sharpness. I might have cropped this one just below the power-line at top left, to remove the bright highlight at the top and shift the viewer's focus back to the snow-clad tree and avenue. The street adds good lead in lines. I like the tonal range in the b&w shot too. Tfs!

    Hi Sasha,

    A superb artistic mural of Moses parting the Red Sea. This region is historically prone to earthquakes and has several fault lines so perhaps there was a little help from the big guy upstairs? The halo or aura clearly shows who is Moses. Tfs!
