A superb blue hour shot of the colourful fountains with excellent sharpness and splendid sharpness. Nice motion blur of the water jets. The playing children animate the scene. Nice warm vs cold colour contrasts between the red and blue. Tfs!

Even from the thumbnail I thought I could make out the outline of an abstract horse. Well composed with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The abstract sculpture is worth a second look too for other hiding shapes! I like the high contrast and shadows reinforcing the graphic element. Tfs!

Perhaps a slight rotastion to the left but apart from that perfection! Impeccable sharpness, colour, saturation and superb warm cold colour contrasts betweent he yellow ochre walls of the castle and the marvellous blue hour sky. The crescent moon is a nice addition. Tfs!

I like the wide angled, panoramic format. Good sharpness, colour, saturation and density levels. The indented patterns in the fg wall nicely frame the bg. The basilica on the horizon makes a fine focal point. The red roof at left contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs!

Like Australia, Britain largely has no major or frequent earthquakes of note, so there was a time 50 million years ago or more, when this wasnt always the case, as evidenced in the geological tell tale signs of the folded rocks. Wonderful warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sea and sky and the yellow red hued rocks in the steep cliff. Tfs!

Superb warm versus cold colour contrasts between the straw yellow fg and the blue sky, with good sharpness and density levels. Nice skylight reflections in the fg stream with the copse of trees in the mid distance at left adding depth to the composition. Good aerial perspective of changing tones in the bg foothills of the Himalayas. Tfs!

The clear blue sky makes a superb backdrop to the pale honey yellow coloured church. Good sharpness and I like the lighting with the fg parked cars in shadow and the facade of the church brightly illuminated. Good saturation & the trees either side balance the composition and nicely frame the shot. Tfs!

A superb profiled portrait of this old woman with a wonderful warm vs cold colour contrast between the red and gold head covering and the blue sky. Good use of a shallow dof yet with perfect sharpness on her eyes and face. The crows feet indentations around her eye add character. Tfs!

A splendid high pov with good sharpness and vibrant colour and saturation. Nice repetition of the white parasols in the central piazza. I like the wonderful warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue sky and the red roofs. The row of houses at left add deep lead in lines and perspective along the adjacent street. Tfs!

I would have straightened this and panned a little more upward to include breathing space around the head of the mermaid. Nice motion blur of the splashing water with good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. The bg paintings on sale add interest and authenticity to this superb daily life scene. Tfs!

A superb head and shoulders portrait with good sharpness and excellent partially diffused lighting. Superb shadow detail and effective tight cropping. His black and white attire adds a nice graphic element. Perfect sharpness on the old mans face and eyes. Good bokeh and oof colors top right. The diagonal head covering or shawl adds dynamism. Tfs!

A superb daily life photo with the added bonus of the agitated looking fish monger! Good use of a shallow dof with excellent sharpness (no, not the knife) & good motion blur of the frenzied hand of the man holding the blurred fish knife. The fg red fish add a nice splash of colour. Tfs!

The colorful facade of the small temple is eye catching amongst the uniform green and reddish pink Spring colours of the forested hillside. The diagonal slope of the hill adds dynamism. Excellent shadow detail and sharpness. Good aerial perspective top right. Tfs!

I went and saw this in 2006 when I was living in adjacent South Korea. A Canadian peace activist was playing the old John Lennon song 'Imagine' when the Iraq war was still raging. A thought provoking post and the mirrored reflection is superb. I was struck by how indiscrimiante the carnage was. Schoolchildren, cats, dogs, horses and even the trees were all collateral damage. This must never happen again. Tfs!

A superb nocturnal shot of the fountain with good sharpness and excellent graphism. Nice motion blur of the water jets & well composed using the rule of thirds. The illuminated bg wall adds a welcpme splash of colour to the shot. Good density levels also. Tfs!

The diagonal axis of the kayak adds dynamism. Nice reflections in the water with good sharpness and the facial expression on the rower is one of determination and endurance. The bright blue shirt stands out well against the softer pastel colours too. Tfs!

Looks like the person depicted is covered in ants or bees. A fine abstract shot with wonderful warm cold colour contrasts between the yellow & blue colours. Well framed and composed. Excellent density levels and graphism. Tfs!
