The blue and white colors are more reminiscent of Greece than Venice Italy. But Venice is all things to all people and a real kaleidoscopic city with many facets. Good daily life scene in this quiet corner of the city. Tfs!

Nice to see happy people enjoying themselves without harming or annoying anyone else. Its really not that difficult! The famous Parisian icon makes a superb backdrop and adds context and place. Good sharpness and excellent shadow detail. The beginning of Autumn is visible in the yellowing trees in the bg. Tfs!

Perhaps a little oversaturated, but the composition and framing are first rate. The curving rail at left adds superb lead in lines towards the distant park and the people add scale and context. The yellow facade of the bg building contrasts well against the blue cyan decor at right. Tfs!

I like the silhouetted people within the arch. They add scale and animate the scene. This one has a more 3d effect than the adjacent upload in your gallery. The front arch and back arch are both visible here. I like the sepia tones a lot here. Tfs!

Amazing decorated facades on this colorful building in green and white, with good sharpness and diminishing linear perspective with the lines converging from left to right. The people add scale and animate the scene. Tfs!

A good high pov with excellent sharpness, color and saturation. The fg water frames the bg city nicely. The yellow building along the shore contrasts superbly against the blue lake. The church steeple being the highest elevation in town makes an obvious focal point. Tfs!

A good downward pov with excellent sharpness. I might have brightened this a little and held back the levels in the highlight at right bisected by the wire. Good tonal range and light contrasts and superb repetition of the people in the cafeteria. Tfs!

A colorful and gaudy welcome to Las Vegas that suits its brash reputation! The sign and the palm trees frame the quartet nicely. Good sharpness and density levels with clear crisp and clean whites and blacks and superb saturation. Tfs!

Nice tight framing on this evocative church with the three dark arches adding superb graphic elements. Good sharpness and the warm pale reddish yellow stone contrasts superbly against the blue sky. I like the decorative flourishes in the arches. Tfs!

Another fine view of the icebergs in this small coastal fishing village's harbor. Good sharpness and I like the blue green tint in the ice. Nice rippled reflections on the water. The darkness and the diffused light add mood. Tfs!

I love the V shape on its side formed by the perfect symmetrical reflection. The successive ridges give this trees the look of a giant arrow. The yellow green forest contrasts well against the blue sky and reflected skylight in the lake. Tfs!

Another fine concert shot, this one with exceptional sharpness, good stage light color and excellent light contrasts and saturation. Well framed and composed. Nice repetition of the patterns on the bg wall formed by the lights. Tfs!

Salut Jean J,
Good textural & tonal details here with excellent wall murals and wonderful color and sharpness. Perspective and framing have been well managed. Nice contrast between the bleak grey street and the crumbling, peeling facade of the building which look as if its undergone some hasty repairs with plaster. Tfs!

In hindsight, I kind of regret not taking any photos of the vultures I saw in the Gobi Desert, even though I had the opportunity. This beaked fish eagle sort of reminded me of that although it is certainly better looking! Good dof and sharpness. Tfs!

I like the golden illumination emanating from with the house and its contrast against the blue hour sky giving a wonderful warm cold color contrast. Good graphic elements with punchy light contrasts. Nice repetition of the fallen Autumn leaves on the fg lawn. The angled pov on the house allows us to see both sides. Tfs!

Impeccable sharpness and a fine upward pov on the tower. Good density levels with punchy light contrasts and superb warm cold color contrasts between the pale lemon yellow tower and the blue sky. The red roof enhances the effect. Excellent symmetry and perspective control in the composition. Tfs!

A fallen dark angel that has come crashing back to earth perhaps. The original sculptor certainly has/had vision and imagination. The woman photographing the statue animates the scene as well as providing scale. Effective tight framing with no part of the space in this scene wasted. Tfs!
ChrisJ (96704) 2014-12-21 20:18
The fg people animate the scene and add life. I like the red facade at right contrasting against the blue and yellow domes. Good repetition of shapes and patterns, especially the stars. Nice textural details in the fg pavement. The fg structure housing a mounted cross adds interest here. Tfs!

A superb alpine photo from Austria & taken from a marvellous high pov, with good sharpness & color saturation. The fg ridge covered in conifer trees adds depth. The isolated rocky tor or peak top right makes a fine focal point. A wonderful blue sky backdrop. Tfs!

This reminds me of my first visit to the Great Wall of China. I could hardly see anything so I went back a few days later and had blue sky. Good sharpness and perspective with excellent lead in lines and mood. Good to include the man walking away from us as he animates the scene. Tfs!
