I love the robotic figurehead on the prow of this artwork ship. Good sharpness, saturation and color. The red men on ropes and the yellow crane contrast superbly against the blue bg. The splash of greenery bottom left adds to the palette. Smart choice of a vertical frame. Tfs!

Perfect use of a shallow dof to isolate and emphasise the sharply defined fg bird. Marvellous density levels that have given good light contrasts, superb saturation levels, and excellent crisp clean whites and blacks. Its rust red breast contrasts nicely against the blue grey bg. Good to have caught a reflection in the bird's eye too. Tfs!

I like the giant dancing statues at right. The people in the square add life and animate the scene. Perhaps a wee bit more sharpness overall. The reflective glass highrise building in the bg makes a fine backdrop. The three triangles at right add interest. Nice motion blur on the plumes of water at left. Tfs!

The modern red and blue logo atop the old building looks strangely incongruous. Good sharpness and effective tight framing with good management of perspective. I might have boosted contrast a little. I like the subtle warm cold color contrasts between the pale red and blue. The passing fg boat at right makes a good centre of interest. Tfs!

The white skyscraper looks superb against the backdrop of the clear blue sky. Good sharpness and a fine upward pov. A nice warm cold color contrast too between the red bus at right and the blue sky. The diagonal pedestrian overpass adds dynamism. Tfs!

I like the warm vs cold color contrast between the blue sky and the rose colored snow at right. Good sharpness and the majestic, solitary snow-capped peak makes a fine backdrop and focal point. Nice repetition of the zig zag ski and walking trails at right in the fg snow. Tfs!

Wonderful graphic elements and superb repetition of the repeating motif of the lamps with excellent sharpness considering this was shot at night, and punchy light contrasts. I like the v shaped formation and the bright yellow orange color of the lights as well as the added graphism of the black Japanese text. Tfs!

Perfect density levels that have given crisp clean whites and blacks as well as superb saturation and punchy light contrasts. The angled pov in this pleasant French street scene adds dynamism. The empty tables and chairs invite strollers by for an al fresco meal and drink. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red magenta and blue. I like the diamond patterns and their repetition in the brickwork. Tfs!

I like the low placed horizon with focus on the amazing sunset skies with their superb warm vs cold color contrast between the blue and orange. Good sharpness and excellent saturation & framing. Nice silhouettes of the mosques at right. Presumably the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia or Aya Sofia. Good density levels and punchy light contrast. Tfs!
ChrisJ (96610) 2014-12-17 10:03
Perhaps a little more sharpness especially in the front. I like the warm vs cold color contrast between the orange reflections on the street at left and the blue shadows both at the top and at right. A superb daily life scene with excellent saturation and effective tight framing. Tfs!

Lovely reflections in the clear blue sea with good sharpness, colour and saturation. The orange buoys contrast well against the blue sea and sky. The bg town almost all in white hugging the shoreline makes a suitable focal point. The reddish brown mountains contrast well against the blue sky to give a superb warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

Apart from a little unsharpness in the fg (perhaps from the post processing?) this is great. Smart choice of a vertical format and the red flowered hanging basket compliments the bg pink wall perfectly. Well framed and composed with excellent saturation and color balance. A good exposure on the bright highlights at right. Tfs!

Love the warm cold color contrast here between the blue sky and blue hued snow and the yellow leaved trees of Autumn. Good sharpness, color and saturation with excellent framing and composition. Superb textural details in the fg snow with a good exposure on the highlights. Tfs!

Perfect symmetrical formation of the 4 fighter jets with a marvellous backdrop of clear blue sky. Good sharpness and saturation especially considering the speed at which these aircraft are moving. The jet trails on a diagonal axis add dynamism. Plenty of breathing space too. Tfs!

This is what the Australian Alps look like. Rounded off at the top and comparatively low at only 2500 metres. I like the fg road which adds deep lead in lines and linear perspective towards the snowcapped peaks. The railway crossing adds interest. Excellent sharpness and natural looking colour. Tfs!

The thumbnail looked like an old 50's jukebox so it was a surprise on opening it to see nothing could be further from that idea! The internal low light levels have been well managed and sharpness is excellent. I like the warm colors and the angled pov. Perhaps a slight tilt to the right? Tfs!
ChrisJ (96610) 2014-12-17 9:23
The high coor saturation works well here. I like the rhythmical pattern of the bg triangular peaks. Good sharpness and the red roof and orange tree contrast well against the blue sky. The diagonal road adds lead in lines, perspective and dynamism. Tfs!
ChrisJ (96610) 2014-12-17 9:16
Effective tight framing in this semi abstract architectural shot. Good sharpness colour and saturation with excellent repetition of geometric patterns and designs. I like the warm cold color contrast between the left and right with the blue and reddish magenta. Some sensual curves and well composed. Tfs!

I love the atmosphere in this. The B&W decision is great, and timing of the man, passing between the tress adds a lot to the composition and sense of movement.
Regardless the location, this is a story in a picture. Love it.

I like the 2 beams of light raking across the hillside here and the more vegetation than the other shot uploaded. The profiled, partially silhouetted view of the Buddha atop the hillside is well positioned roughly on the 1/3 axis. The white building adds interest. Tfs!
