Looks like a relaxing summer scene and the person on the board paddling out nicely breaks the repetitive pattern of the static fg bathers to add contrast. Good sharpness and a nice warm cold color contrast between the reddish yellow sand and the blue water. Tfs!

Yes golf by candle or torch light doesnt sound like a good prospect. Good sunset with excellent graphism and silhouettes of the fg grasses. Nice warm cold colour contrasts and superb saturation & framing using the rule of thirds. Tfs!

I like the semi abstract look and feel of this tightly cropped image. Good reflections with the ripples adding interest. The green at the top and the 3 vertical shapes reachig deep down into the image from the top add balance to the compo and follow the rule of thirds. Tfs!

Love the super saturation and brilliant Autumn lighting here. The high pov gives an expansive view out over the lake and the power lines at right have been skilfully merged with the vegetation rather than outlined against the sky. Tfs!

The zig zags and curves add nice lead in lines and repetitive motifs. The fog adds mood, mystery and atmosphere. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The A frame bg building looks interesting. The absence of people enhance the feeling of desertion. Tfs!

Looks almost tropical, the Amazon perhaps? Good inclusion of the jogger in blue shirt to add scale and context. The path adds nice lead in lines. Good sharpness and superbly managed backlight. I like the radiating sunbeams. Tfs!

After living overseas for 8 years, I've realised that the Australia I left behind in 2006 no longer exists. I've changed too and so has my city, even more so than me. In some ways better, in some ways worse. It's just different to the way I remember it. Such is life. Well depicted here. The Pretenders song "My City Was Gone" comes to mind.
The upward pov to the dome looks great. Tfs!

Brings back fond memories of the magnificent Annapurnas near Pokhara in Nepal from Sarankot. Good relief from the sidelight catching only the protruding ridges and leaving the niches in shadow. Excellent sharpness and the blue and white colors go well together. Tfs!

Even on a cloudy day it still looks great! Good sharpness and nice transparency of the clear blue green water. The curving esplanade at right adds great lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. The yellow building contrasts well against the blue and blue grey tones. Tfs!

It certainly looks active too with the denuded scarred summit bereft of trees. Good sharpness and the lush green rice paddies are wonderful in the fg. I like the high pov. The coconut trees enhance the tropical look and feel. Tfs!

Firstly I like the contrast and juxtaposing of the fg tram with the bg tram at right. Secondly I like the reflected blue sky light on the tram at left color contrasting with the bright yellow facade, and how this is mirrored in reverse on the tram at right with a blue facade and yellow trim. Tfs!

The red Cyrillic lettering contrasts superbly against the blue sky and water to give a wonderful warm vs cold color contrast. Good sharpness and the couple right off centre add scale and a welcome human element. The bg strip of green and houses add interest. Tfs!

Hello Jean Jacques,
Lovely pastel colors in the sky amplified in the perfectly symmetrical reflection with nice warm cold color contrasts between the orange and blue. Good sharpness and well composed minimalist shot with just the water, sky, and some boats, and the bg tower. Tfs!

This reminds me a little of the leaning tower of Pisa. Good upward pov with interesting design and good sharpness and nice repetition of patterns and shapes. Excellent shadow detail in the facade and the strong backlight has been well managed. Tfs!

A superb big sky shot from Montana. I like the snow capped peaks on the horizon which add depth. Good sharpness and nice graphism of the weathered fg fence at right. A nice tonal range in the grey and white clouds. The yellow green grass contrasts well against the blue sky too. Tfs!

The dark shadows on the fg stairs add a nice graphic element to enhance the effect of repetition. Good sharpness and nice warm versus cold colour contrasts between the yellow orange and reddish pink facades of the 3 main buildings and the bg blue sky. Tfs!

A superb blue hour shot from Chicago. Nice motion blur of the water plumes and superb reflections in the fountain, with splendid warm vs cold color contrasts between the hot pink & yellow illumination and the blue sky. The city skyline makes a great backdrop. Tfs!

The running boy in blue and red attire is eye-catching and animates the scene. Good sharpness and thye town square and al fresco dining areas add interest. A nice blue sky and good sharpness. The 2 bg towers enhance the scene. Tfs!

A superb decisive moment shot with the shadowed woman perfectly positioned against the sunlit background to give a marvellous graphic effect. Goof use of the old stone arch as a framing device for the bg orange pink tower, which colour contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Tfs!

A fine Autumn shot with wonderful symmetrical reflections in the relatively still water and superb warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and golden foliage and the red facade of the boat. Excellent sharpness and saturation. Tfs!
