A lovely little fishing and pleasure boat harbour with good color, saturation and sharpness. Striking warm cold color contrasts on the blue and yellow fg boat. Nice reflections in the water with the horizon well placed away from the centre. Tfs.

The Corinthian style columns add nice decorative elements to this impressive neoclassical Wroclaw building. Good sharpness and perspective has been well managed. Your camera has caught the mans eye. I like the curving tram tracks too. Tfs.

This one jumped out at me from your recent gallery. Good sharpness and well cropped and framed. The soft pink green and yellow orange facades of the buildings are eyecatching. They also contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs.

The fg strip of highway adds a nice frame then the city and finally the Mediterranean. Fantastic high pov with excellent sharpness and superb density levels that have given ideal saturation and punchy light contrasts. Tfs.

The red freighter contrasts well against the blue sky and water to give a pleasing warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness & the docks loaded with stacked containers remind me of Busan Harbour in Korea. I good closeup to compliment the previous upload. Tfs.

The only smoking volcano I have ever seen is Merapi in Java, which erupted violently some years after I visited Jogjakarta in Indonesia. They say smoking is bad for your health, and this is especially true where dormant volcanoes are concerned, especially when they erupt when you're on them, or near them! Fortunately Etna is not especially violent and there are no large towns nearby. Sometimes lava destroys some the nearer homes and buildings but this is rare. Anyway, good sharpness and an interesting post. Tfs.

An amusing composition. The plastic man seems to be delighted to observe the helicopter. Efficient framing with no wasted space and the bright cheerful colors of red, blue and yellow enliven the scene. Tfs.

Looks like it would be a great place for a barbeque on a warm summer's day. Some sausages and a glass of wine or a cold beeer and the picture is complete. The lawn is mowed the decorative wagon wheel with ivy is nice. Tfs.

The green snake would be difficult to spot in the rainforest so it's well camouflaged against any predators. You caught it in an unusual position coiled around a branch. Excellent use of a shallow dof. The only snakes I saw in north Qld were dead ones on the road. But I was watching out for them. (live ones). They have Taipans up there too! Tfs.

A good upward pov with the stairs adding lead in lines towards the top as well as diminishing linear perspective and converging lines. A nice clear blue sky backdrop. I was there in August. Hope you went up to the top of the tower. The view from there is marvellous. Tfs.

No wonder Swiss cheese tastes so good judging from the well cared for cows and the lush green meadows. Good sharpness and a magnificent view. The jagged snow-capped mountains make a superb backdrop. Excellent sharpness throughout. Tfs.

Ah, Marianplatz! I visited this square many times but I did not know there was a lookout at the top. I will have to investigate next time I am Munich. Good fisheye view here that makes the most of the distortion. Tfs.

Good sidelight and toplight from the left that gives interesting triangular shadows on the roof. Excellent sharpness and well framed and composed. The colourful red awnings and yellow sunlit sunshade on the terrace contrast well with the blue tones. Tfs.

Well I have seen Vesuvius from Naples lookout, but not Naples from Vesuvius! The isolated bg cloud resembles Mont Blanc! It's a real worry to see how close the city is if there is ever a major eruption. Apparently there is an undersea volcano much closer to Naples which poses an even bigger threat. Naturally, this is a superb high pov. Tfs.

Now I am wondering how they got down to the Atlantic Ocean before the St Lawrence seaway was built! There's the obvious obstacle of Niagara Falls. They must have dragged the sailships downhill / uphill on wooden rollers and used ropes. Anyway the haloed statue atop the church and the 2 winged angels make great points of interest. Tfs.

The diamond patterns in the red tiled roof remind me of Stepenplatz in Vienna, or some of the Romanian Saxon churches I saw. Good sharpness and a nice angled pov on the tower. Excellent color and saturation. I like the shadow of the bg tower falling across the front of the building at left. Tfs.

Smart choice of a vertical frame with 3 competing vertical elements of the cross at right, the central spire of the little church and the windblown palm trees at left. Good sharpness and a superb 'big sky' shot. Tfs.

It's hard to believe in this day and age that there are still some pockets of the world where photography is viewed with superstition and suspicion. Good sharpness and the fg tyre adds depth and layering. The yellow inside of the cart contrasts well with the blue sea and sky. Tfs.
