The photographer at centre right adds interest to this shot. Good sharpness and the twin hedges provide good lead in lines and linear perspective, especially the fg one. A pleasant diffused light and natural looking color and saturation with nice sharpness. Tfs!

Apart from the absence of mosques this looks amazingly similar to some of the cities I've seen in Turkey. Good color and sharpness with effective tight framing. The patch of blue sky was a good inclusion and the effective tight framing and wide angled panoramic crop work well. Tfs!

I have been to Moab so I can appreciate this shot even more. I was very lucky and could stop where I wanted. Good sharpness and marvellous warm vs cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and the red rocks. I almost expect to see Wylie Coyote and roadrunner zip across the screen! Tfs!

Impeccable sharpness with a pleasant diffused light and the curving street at left adding nice lead in lines towards the back. Looks to be a very tidy and orderly town. I like the old style architecture at the back. Tfs!

The yellow stripes on the boat at left contrast well against the blue water. What a superb decisive moment and almost no motion blur as well on the face! The other boy looking up from the sea balances the composition. Tfs!

It is my dream to see this personally but it sounds like a mixture too with nightmarish visa controls. Love the fg rainbow. Good sharpness and a marvellous downward pov. I used to watch Tarzan as a kid and I am sure the opening sequence was filmed here. Tfs!

Wonderful warm vs cold color contrasts between the richly saturated blue sky and the equally resplendent red rocks and soil. The road adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. I like the wide angled panoramic crop. Tfs!

A superb daily life scene of the travelling salesman with his lovely bunch of coconuts. Fresh juice is refreshing on a hot day and more nutritious than cola as well! Nice use of a shallow dof here with perfect sharpness on the fg man and bike. Tfs!

A good upward, angled pov on the old new bridge with nice rippled reflections in the brook and a good warm cold color contrast between the yellow green foliage of the willow trees and the reflected blue skylight and blue sky. Tfs!

This brings back happy memories. I seem to recall being able to spot the Arc De Triumph top left when I took a similar shot. The diagonal Seine River adds both dynamism and linear perspective. Good sharpness and diffused light. Merci!

Effective tight framing on the clock with excellent sharpness and vibrant colour. Good textural and tonal details in the peeling paint. The shadows add a nice graphic element. Punchy light contrasts with good saturation. Merci!

Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and reddish orange granite rocks. The people walking their dog add scale and animate the scene. Aptly titled! I guess it would be hellish with no guiderail in winter with slippery ice and snow? Tfs!

I like the colourful facades of the bg buildings and the harmonious blending of slightly different architectural styles. Also a stark contrast between the well cared for and colorful bg and the less salubrious, well cared for and almost colourless fg. Nice repetition of the boats too. Tfs!

A good exposure on the bright white highlights with excellent sharpness and a superb angled pov. The zebra crossing at left adds lead in lines towards the building. A nice blue sky and perspective has been well managed. Bon semaine!

I like the reflection in the fg pool of water and the layered composition with the fg snow, mid level embankment row of trees and chalets at the back with yet another row of trees right at the back. Good sharpness and exposure levels. Tfs!

Wish I'd gone there now. I only had an analogue film camera in 2008 and spent an hour in the museum in low light levels trying to get a decent shot of the totem poles but was unsuccessful. Vibrant colour with adequate sharpness & effective tight framing. Tfs!

Send meee! Raining here near Istanbul for the past 4 days so a blue sky like this would suit me fine. The child walking in the fg and the bg boat add life and animate the scene as well as providing additional focal points. Good sharpness and the solitary coconut palm telss us this is a warm tropical place. Merci!

The shadow from the sidelight from the left adds good lead in lines towards the enigmatic statue. Good sharpness and shadow detail despite the dark volcanic rock. The groove in the center makes it look like its a 4 legged animal with a huge head. Good framing too. Tfs!

Our Swedish friends will be very happy with this shot! The blue and yellow go so well together. Nice repetition of the beach huts and bathing sheds. Excellent sharpness with good lead in lines and perspective. Have a nice week!

Wonderful symmetrical reflections in the tranquil waters with good sharpness, color and saturation. There is a halo at left so I would use a bigger feather margin. The 2 cottages make a fine focal point. Have a nice week!
