A wonderful warm vs cold color contrast between the reddish hued mountain top in full sunlight against the grey blue sky. I like the flattened perspective from the zoom. Good sharpness and saturation. The dual diagonal lines add dynamism. I like the layering into 3 here too. Tfs.

Amazing street art of the doberman and the bird character from 'Peanuts'. The windows at right add scale to the real size of this large mural. Good sharpness color and saturation. Well framed and composed and a pleasant diffused light. Perspective has been well managed. Tfs.

Good sharpness with fantastic warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the yellow red facades of the orthodox church. The snow enhances the graphic elements. Perspective has been well managed with no sign of lens barrel distortion. Plenty of breathing space right around in this well composed shot. Tfs.

Still too cold in Moldova to consider swimming (1-10c) so this tropical beach scene is the stuff of dreams. Good sharpness and the coconut palms add nice repetitive elements. Excellent sharpness and superb color and saturation. The yellow red sand contrasts well against the blue sea and sky. The blue and white church is worth a photo in its own right. Tfs.

The red brick floor of the upper terrace at right sets up a wonderful warm vs cold colour contrast agaisnt the blue sky. I like the wide angled, panoramic crop and the superb sharpness and saturation. The diagonal stone fence at right provides both dynamism and linear perspective towards the back. Tfs.

This looks like the area around Glenlyon Dam in Qld Australia. Its not lush coastal anymore and its not dry desert either. Sort of a transition zone on an elevated plateau sloping away to the west. The fg fence here adds depth and graphic elements. Fantastic sharpness and a dramatic sky with even a little rain falling in the distance. Tfs.

I like the shadow play formed by the strong sidelight from the right through the ornate grill fence. Nice repetition of the shelter sheds at the end of the pier. Good sharpness and excellent depth and perspective. The lamppost adds depth, graphic elements and framing. Tfs.

I stayed in a 4 star hotel in Urfa which was a big improvement on the Nemrut Dagi Hotel I stayed at the bight before. The cost was included in the package tour I booked in Goreme. I like the slightly wide angled panoramic format and superb colour and sharpness. A good high pov. Tfs.

I am off to the other winery in Moldova tomorrow morning. Ive already visited Cricova. The high pov over the vineyards works well here. Good color and sharpness with superb saturation and framing. The red umbrella at left contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs.

I like the electric blue color of the bg minaret at right contrasting against the yellow illuminated minaret at left in the fg. Smart choice of a vertical format to emphasize the height. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the domes and cupolas. Tfs.

The shadowed snowy slope at right adds dynamism and the dark conifer trees along the ridge provide a wonderful graphic element of contrasting dark against light tones. Good sharpness and the craggy, snow capped peaks in the bg make a majestic alpine backdrop. Tfs!

A good daily life scene from this picturesque fishing village and harbour. Natural looking color saturation and a pleasant diffused light. The diagonal concrete pier adds dynamism, and the fishermen add scale and context. The yellow and blue colors set up a harmonious warm cold color contrast. Tfs.

I love that snow capped peak in full sunlight in the distance at top left. Good high pov with impeccable sharpness and superb framing and saturation. The lemon yellow tints in the sunset clouds contrast well against the blue grey hues. Tfs.

Fabulous repetition of the pylons in the water with nice reflections and superb sharpness and saturation. I like the warm vs cold colour contrast between the reflected blue skylight and the yellow brown wooden poles protruding out of the water. Tfs!

The village appears to be marooned on an island in a sea of fog! Good sharpness and nice graphic elements of contrasting dark and light tones. The heavy frost on the fg grass adds interest. I like the minimalist color and muted saturation. Tfs!

The Rhone Alps are very impressive. Punchy light contrasts with a good exposure on the white highlights of the snow. Excellent sharpness and nice graphic elements of the dark spire against the lighter blue snow. Tfs.

A good high pov but I am missing a bit of sharpness. The long sweeping curve of the beach adds good lead in lines. Excellent color contrasts between the yellow sand and the blue sea and sky. The bg fish traps made from bamboo add interest. Tfs.

A fantastic composite shot of the same beach at different times of the day. I prefer the lower shot which is taken at high tide and the black rocks are now covered. The reflections in the wet sand help too and of course the marvellous sunset colors of orange red. The sea is also bluer than the upper image. Tfs!

A good upward pov on the alley with excellent sharpness and superb bounced light off the light reflective walls. A clear blue sky backdrop that contrasts well against the white washed walls. I like the repetition of the orange red triangular chimney structures. Tfs!

Smart choice of a vertical format with good sharpness and the red brick top of the building at right sets up a nice warm cold colour contrast against the blue sky. Nice textural detail in the building at left with the grey prisms, which also add a good repetitive element. Tfs!
