    Nice repetition of the moored boats in the marina. Good reflections and excellent sharpness and composition. Excellent warm cold colour contrasts between the red roofs and cyan water. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    The pale burgundy red color of the cliffs at left contrasts well with the deep blue color of the water and the paler blue of the sky. Lots of birdlife is evident in this shot. Tfs!

    A lovely symmetrical reflection of the tree in the placid waters of the canal. Good sharpness, color and saturation. The bridge with a car adds an interesting border at left. Tfs!

    Hello Gert,

    There are pieces of the former Berlin Wall scattered all over the world including Seoul in South Korea. It was quite a contrast and shock to see the western side of the wall covered in bright, cheerful, colorful graffiti; and a walk around to the eastern section of the wall revealed bullet holes and a stark white wall devoid of any graffiti. The castle like bridge reminds me of Verona in north Italy. Tfs!

    Hello Carlo,

    I like the tight framing and repetition of the cyan umbrellas and deckchairs. The empty first 5 rows changing to populated chairs in the last two rows adds interest. Excellent sharpness and downward pov. Tfs!

    Namaste Swapan,

    A superb daily life scene of the women in green saris and floral vases that add superb repetition. The man in the yellow shirt with the fiddle nicely breaks the repetitive pattern. Good sharpness and tight framing. Tfs!

    A lovely waterfront view of the sea and tightly clustered houses clinging to the steep hillside in the distance. The 2 empty fg seats add depth & layering to the composition. Nice fg reflections in the water. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge

    Such a complex region with so many deep divisions. Good color and sharpness and it seems that life goes on here with comparative normality when looking at other Syrian towns like Homs or Aleppo, judging from the old broken furniture left out in the street for collection. Tfs!

    Good evening Pavle,

    I like the orange tinted clouds in the sky. Good sharpness and well composed using the rule of thirds. Excellent colour and saturation. The darker green of the trees along the distant stream add tonal variety. Tfs!

    I like the dramatic and ominous dark skies. Good sharpness and a fine wide angled view of the river front. The green spires of the cathedral at right provide an excellent focal point. Tfs!

    Bonjour, chère Cricri,

    I was probably on the same ferry at 4am in August 2013 on my way to Amsterdam. The boat from Dover docked in Calais and the bus drove through Belgium. I like the row of weathered pylons and their shadows which add lead in lines. Tfs!

    Hello Ike.

    You missed out with the weather but better to get a shot, any shot, than none at all. Good framing and sharpness is adequate. I like the upward pov on the ornate statues. Tfs!
