    Bonjour Swapan

    The red facade and arches contrast nicely against the blue sky. Good sharpness and a fine overview shot. The fg path adds lead in lines and perspective. I like the wide angled, panoramic crop. The palm trees book-ending the shot add symmetry and frame the scene as well as adding a tropical look. Tfs!

    Hello Ike,

    Looks like a scene from Australia! Especially with thge eucalyptus trees. Nice reflections and the curve of the stream adds good lead in lines and perspective. I like the shadow play in the water. Good idea to exclude the white sky as much as possible. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo.

    I love the light and warm colours and sense of tranquility here. Good sharpness and excellent use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. The religious frescoes are amazing. The woman seated adds life to the scene. Tfs!

    Ciao Philippe

    A good downward pov with excellent sharpness and diffused light yet still with good contrast and saturation. The old chemist or pharmacy certainly looks archaic! The mortar and pestle are a nice touch. Good museum shot. Can be difficult sometimes! Tfs!

    Hello Burak

    Looks like a miniature version of the Arc De Triumphe! I like the ornate sculptures and statuary adorning the arch. The people add scale and animate the scene. Good sharpness and the graffiti adds authenticity, though it mars the arch. Tfs!

    Witaj Piotr!

    Lovely symmetrical reflections in the mirror like lake of the trees and majestic snowcapped mountains, with good sharpness and saturation. The Rhone Alps looks like a transplanted slice of the Canadian Rockies or adjacent Switzerland! Tfs!

    Hi Miguel,

    A splendid daily life scene from Nepal of this charming street market. A good downwards pov and the slight tilt to the left adds dynamism and a shooting from the hip vibe. Not sure but the black plastic bag at left with the red looks like betel-nut, a mild narcotic which is chewed. It rots your teeth though. Tfs!

    Hello Paul

    Looks like you really enjoyed Japan! These colourful traditional kimonos make a superb subject and the girls seem reasonably obliging. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue costumes. The bg people walking by look drab in comparison. Tfs!

    Hello Paul,

    The red pagoda roof of this Japanese temple contrasts superbly against the bg blue sky, with good sharpness enablig us to clearly pick out all the ornate sculptured details in the roof such as the Buddhist sign resembling a reversed swastika. Nice repetition of patterns and shapes. Tfs!

    Bonjour Christiane,

    This reminds me of Dalyan in Turkey again, except there is no wooden boardwalk like this just a procession of boats to get around to and from the beach. Nice reflections of the cauliflower clouds in the water at right. Good sharpness and perspective. Tfs!

    Bonjour Christiane,

    The warm reddish yellow ochre colors of the castle contrast superbly against the bg blue sky to give a splendid warm cold colour contrast. Good light contrasts too. Excellent sharpness and density levels. I like the low shooting angle looking up the rampart walls. Tfs!

    Bonjour Nicolas

    The green trees at right really stand out well from the duotones onf blue and white in the bg. Reminds me of Banff in Canada. Good sharpness and a marvellous high pov. Exposure on the highlights is perfect. Good shadow derail at left. Tfs!

    Hello Wolfgang

    I like the high pova nd the red ivy clinging to the wall at left. Its warm colour contrasts well against the hazy blue grey bg. The castle makes a fine focal point. I like the patch of sunlight on the green meadows top right. Tfs!

    Hello Brian

    A superb warm vs cold color contrast between the yellow Autumn tones in the fg and the pale bg blue sky. Good sharpness and saturation. The church and abbey are sharply defined against the horizon to enhance the graphic effect. The diffused bg light contrasts well against the brightly lit fg. Tfs!

    Hello Danos,

    I have a similar shot in Cesme Harbour looking towards Chios in Greece. Might load it one day. Love the repetition of the yachts and the bright orange cloud illuminated by the setting sun. Good sharpness and saturation. The bg range of blue mountains adds depth. Tfs!

    Hello Stephen

    A spectacular view of the Hong Kong Harbour from Victoria Peak. Did you wait until blue hour and nightfall? Even more spectacular then! You were lucky not to get a smoggy day and have clear blue sky. The green triangular slivers of hills add balance and frame the scene well. Tfs!

    A marvellous blue sky backdrop with excellent sharpness especially considering the high speed forward movement of the Uzbekistan Aircraft. The tilt adds dynamism. Good placement off centre. Excellent density levels giving punchy light contrasts. Tfs!

    Hi Daniel

    I like the choice of a vertical frame here and the crop which gives a nice bookmark effect. Good sharpness and perspective. The 2 people walking down the alley in the bg animate the shot. The window boxes with flowers add a welcome splash of color. Tfs!

    Hello Gert

    That is over 100 feet taller than Mt Elbrus, the highest mountain in Russia and perhaps Europe too, if you include 'European' western Russia. Also taller than Ararat. The snowcapped volcano looks majestic on the horizon. Good sharpness and saturation with the curving fg road adding strong lead in lines. Tehran is worryingly only 41 miles away from this potentially dangerous volcano which last erupted 7,300 years ago. The fumeroles were active in 2007.
