Ah yes, I see it. Good diffused light and maximum shadow detail as a compensatory bonus for the overcast skies. It's possible to add a fake blue sky in photoshop, but you need to be careful of reflections. Grey reflections of a blue sky give the game away! Tfs.

A splendid high and elevated pov with vibrant colour and nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue skylight reflected in the water and the red roof. There is a similar bridge at Middle Harbour in Sydney. Tfs.

Punchy light contrasts and the red roof at left contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and perspective has been well managed. The yellow streak at the bottom of the building enhances the effect. The cp has done its job admirably. Tfs.

Missed this one. The serene Chinese garden has been well captured. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The characteristic bright red painted buildings are typically Chinese. The design appears to be a fusion of several styles. The weirdly shaped limestone rocks buttressing many Chinese gardens are missing here. Tfs.

Nice repetition of the firescapes, which add an aesthetic as well as a practical element. Good sharpness, color and saturation. The yellow vehicle and the red brick buildings contrast superbly against the blue sky to give a wonderful warm cold color contrast. Tfs.

Wonderful repetition of patterns shapes designs and colors in this superb wall mural with the passing woman animating the scene beautifully. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. Effective tight framing and superb shadow detail. Tfs.

After travelling all day from Florence I arrived in Pisa right on blue hour and took advantage of it. The 4 very distinctive buildings, or perhaps 3, and their yellow red illumination, contrast well against the blue sky. Reasonably good sharpness in the fg getting better towards the back. Tfs.

A superb high pov with good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The fountain jet in the distance top right adds interest. The clocktower at left makes an excellent focal point. I like the symmetry of the 2 fg circles on the roof. Tfs.

Nice deep blue skylight reflections in the Yarkon River which contrast superbly against the yellow shirt worn by one of the rowers. A similar scene could be spotted on the Yarra River in Melbourne. Well composed using the rule of thirds with reasonable sharpness. Tfs.

The Doric style columns at the left entrance hint at neoclassical Greco Roman design. The people add scale and animate the scene. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light with the flowers adding a welcome splash of colour. The red brick chimneys contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs.

A superb upward pov and it looks Moorish in design. I saw similar courtyards in Morocco and Spain. I will try to find a google image of this palazzo and will let you know what I find. Good sharpness and the palm tree adds strong lead up lines. Tfs.

They have similar tour buses in Vienna and Istanbul along with many other European cities. Good sharpness and excellent framing and color with good saturation. Its a good albeit expensive and slightly disappointing way to take in the sights. In Vienna the bus did not stop once and it was around 45 euro. I went back and used the Metro the following day to get to places I saw on the bus to actually get some photos of them! Tfs.

This shot reminds me of Meteora in north west Greece. The huge, weathered stone plugs dwarf the tiny red roofed cottage at left, which adds scale. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Excellent textural details. Tfs.

Effective tight framing on this section of the audience with excellent sharpness and nice use of a shallow dof. The colorful clothing is eyecatching. A pleasant diffused light and the motion blur of the applauding hands animates the scene. Tfs.

It looks cold, and the bare poplar trees hint at a long even colder winter ahead. The sunlit hill in the distance makes a nice focal point. The interesting fg ruins of stone walls remind me of the Hatussa Hittite ruins east of Ankara. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs.

I like the striking warm vs cold color contrast between the yellow red fort and the blue sky. Good sharpness and the fg women in their colorful saris animate the scene and provide scale. The men at far right on their bikes and the stray dog add further life to the scene. Tfs.
ChrisJ (101782) 2015-05-23 5:11
Lovely warm cold color contrasts between the red jacket, yellow bag and the turquoise water and blue sky. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. The tongue of land and part of the fishing village top right add depth and layering. Tfs.
ChrisJ (101782) 2015-05-23 4:56
Missed this one. Wonderful colour and saturation with good density levels that have given solid blacks and crisp clean whites. The people on the lush green lawns animate the scene. Good sharpness and the clocktower makes a fine focal point. Tfs.

I like the opposing diagonals in this shot which add dynamism and some perspective. The minimalist colours work well here. Good sharpness and effective tight framing and composition. The cross adds a nice graphic element against the lighter toned sky. Tfs.
