    Hello Piotr,

    Missed this one. I like the repetition of the thatched beach umbrellas and the orange brown deckchairs, that add a warm cold color contrast with the blue sea and sky. Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    Good sharpness and tight framing with the tour de france duo appearing to be coming straight at you. I like the slightly angled pov too. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    A good upward pov on the stairs with the people at the top well placed over the vanishing point. A textbook example of diminished linear perspective. Tfs!

    Hello Costantino,

    My boat from Samos to Mykonos stopped at this island briefly. Good sharpness and the people along the quay add scale. The rocky bg island provides depth and layering to the composition. Tfs!

    The giant golden prayer wheel contrasts well against the blue sky to give a superb warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and the people add scale. Tfs!

    Hello John,

    On the plus side you got a lovely diffused light and soft pastel colors despite the grey skies. Good sharpness and perspective. I might have blurred the pixelated blue parts of the sky in the top right corner. A minor detail though. Tfs!

    Hello Piotr,

    I just stayed the one night in Vlore. They had a terrible hailstorm with destructive wind gusts just as I arrived from a bus from Jale Beach. Not a great day. 3 buses were already full and refused to stop and pick me up. The 4th eventually DID stop, after waiting 5 hours at the bus stop. Looks like something out of a James Bond Movie, or the residence of Dr Evil, Lol! Tfs!

    I like the fg shadow of the chimney. Good sharpness and the strong diagonal from the bottom left corner adds superb lead in lines towards the top left. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    Good sharpness and I like the subtle reflection. The reflected blue skylight in the water and the bg greenery of the grass and forest compliment the image. Good breathing space right around the pleasure craft boat. Tfs!

    The empty road adds strong diagonal lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Good sharpness and a bonus of the cloudy day is the soft diffused light. Tfs!

    HI Lars,

    I like the elevated high pov overlooking the harbor and blue waters. The ferry at bottom right fills some negative space and adds a focal point of interest. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge,

    I never made it to Ios. Just Naxos and Poros which I liked a lot. Couldn't see Ios on this list so I think you were safe!

    The solitary hilltop building adds a good focal point here. Tfs!

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    There were a few of these old carriages in Naples Museum at San Martino, and it's also interesting to see them here. Effective tight framing and it seems the driver / rider controlling the horses had no protection from the rain or snow, unlike his wealthy clientele. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    Nice inclusion of the whole left end of the peninsula and the small marina with moored boats. Few if any shots on TE include this section and focus instead on the colorful houses and pan more to the right. Of course a stitched image showing both would be just perfect, but I have not figured out how to do that with my Nikon D76... yet Tfs!
