Some fine journalistic street photography is illustrated here with an eye to timing, perspective and human interaction with the wares on display within the shop window. Good sharpness and color with effective tight framing and cropping. Tfs.

A pleasant bucolic scene of green meadows and lush irrigated fields. Good sharpness & saturation. I like the elevated vantage point. The twin silos provide a needed focal point. Tfs.

This is like something you might expect to see exhibited at Wattens. Good graphic elements between the dark and light tones with the swirling and contorted lines adding interest and lead in lines. The musical notes and their repetition are fantastic! Tfs.

Poorer rural mainland Chinese immigrants who cannot afford expensive accommodation in central HK often resort to these floating houses and turn to fishing to support themselves and save money for a one way fare to the USA, Canada or Australia / NZ. A superb daily life scene with good sharpness and color. Tfs.

Wonderful warm vs cold colour contrasts between the yellow facade of the half-timbered house, and the blue sky, with excellent sharpness. Perspective has been well managed. The dark wooden slats provide a graphic element against the lighter toned bg. Tfs.

Immaculate density levels that have given superb saturation with clean whites and solid blacks that provide punchy light contrasts. Good warm cold color contrasts between the red roofs and blue sky. The graphism of the dark palm tree is a bonus. Tfs!

A textbook illustration of how to do diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point, and as in every good photo, there is something at the end of the converging lines to make the visual 'journey' worthwhile, in this case the tram. You were wise to be cautious about trams from the rear! Tfs.

Ah, love is in the air! You've captured a romantic and intimate moment between the couple on the spiral stairs. Good sharpness, color, and saturation. The diagonal axis of the stairs across the frame adds dynamism. Tfs.

A marvellous duo toned sunset with the contrasting hot and cold colors of orange and blue. Good sharpness and color saturation. The diagonal slant of the clouds adds nice dynamism. Good silhouettes and graphism of the fg trees. Tfs.

The semi-nude female statue is reminiscent of the figurines adorning the masts of ships as a (superstitious) talisman for good luck and fortune. The bg boats add to the scene. Excellent sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs.

The fountain has a soothing effect and its predominant b&w color tones contrast strongly against the vivid green and magenta hues of the bg vegetation at left. I like the shallow dof and repetition of the bg circles of confusion. Tfs.

The diagonal, dark fence adds strong graphic elements against the lighter toned bg as well as providing dynamism to the composition. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The path and bridge at right provide excellent lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Tfs.

For some reason, perhaps the similarly manicured green an yellow checkered pastures, this reminds me of the view from aptly named Mount French in south-east Queensland.
Good sharpness and the telecommunications tower adds a focal point. Tfs.

The terrain is other-worldly and almost like another planet! The jagged ice and snow capped peak and their cool blue tones contrast well against the warmer fg tones. Good sharpness and I like the wide angled, panoramic crop. Tfs.

I like this one too. I might have tried to brighten the dark blue sky and add some luminosity. Wonderful repetition of the magenta decorations and the people add scale. Good sharpness and perspective. I like the fg shadow play too. Tfs.

Lovely warm cold color contrasts between the yellow, red and blue, with good sharpness and excellent framing and composition. A pleasant diffused light with superb shadow detail and no part of the frame wasted. Tfs.

Tallinn was recommended to me by Malgo, and it didn't disappoint. Excellent sharpness with immaculate control over perspective. Punchy light contrasts on account of the perfect density levels, with good saturation & wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue. Tfs.

It's always difficult and demanding to shoot into the backlight but here the effort was worth it with the fog enveloping the tall skyscraper at left. Good sharpness and strong light and tonal contrasts with excellent sharpness. Tfs.

Good shadow detail and sharpness with the fg arch nicely framing the bg view. The stone stairs add dynamism. Nice repetition of the red angled fg flagstones. The lamp at the top adds a good focal point. Realistic color and saturation. Tfs.
