The invisible diagonal axis formed by the 2 mushrooms adds dynamism and lead in lines. Good sharpness and dof with natural, realistic colour. I also like the warm cold color contrast between the yellow green grass and the blue grey vegetation. Have a nice week!

So Holland does not have a monopoly on tulip flowers in Europe! Nice to see them in France, too. Wonderful lead in lines and perspective with vivid colors and good sharpness and saturation. The downward slope of the terrain also helps to lead the eye towards the back of this image. Striking warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue and red. Merci!

The mist adds mood, mystery and atmosphere. A superb high pov overlooking the characteristic hilltop villages of these parts with their tightly clustered stone houses. Good sharpness and soft pastel colors. The elongated c shape nicely leads the eye right around the image. Tfs!

This would make a good bookmark! The elongated vertical format works well in this superb b&w image. Nice repetition of the vaulted arches with good sharpness and graphism. I also like the marvellous tonal range and textural details. The upward pointing triangular arrow shapes lead the eye imperceptibly towards the top. Tfs!

Wonderful distorted reflections in the windows, that remind me of some of the 'melting' figures in Salvador Dali's art. Good sharpness and well framed and composed with perfect symmetry into first 2, then quadrants. Tfs!

I have never been under the SHB, but I did walk under the Storey Bridge in Brisbane 4 years ago and found a large gecko painting done in an Aboriginal style of art (indigenous Australians to the pc inclined). It is good to check out these usually hidden spaces from time to time as most people just drive straight over it, or only see a profile from a distance. Oh and I also walked under the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, although you cannot get as close to the support structure as depicted here due to concerns about terrorism. Tfs!

This reminds me of an American tv show I used to watch as a kid back in 1960's but the name of the show escapes me. Good use of a shallow dof and the whimsical dummy steals the show at left. A fine head and shoulders portrait of the man at right too! Tfs!

Maybe she is praying to my namesake, St Christopher, the patron saint of travel? Her suitcase seems to suggest so. Good use of a shallow dof with excellent sharpness aon the lit candles, altar and chandelier with soft focus on the impressive artwork at the back. Tfs!

Tres jolie! I like the diagonal shaft of sunlight emanating from the sun. Good warm cold colour contrasts between the orange skies and hazy blue mountains. Good silhouettes and graphic elements with the tree, bench and structure at left. Bon semaine!

I remember going to a salt farm in Thailand and having to wash my feet and shoes which were covered in salt and mud, so I hope you did not have too much problem here. The pinkish red color is unusual and contrasts superbly against the blue sky. The diagonal channel adds good lead in lines and dynamism. Tfs!

The thumbnail doesn't do this justice and it was a pleasant surprise on opening to see the perfectly framed sun in a starburst pattern reflecting off the sides of the rotted pier pylon in the fg. Good sharpness and the receding lines of the shore add good dynamism and perspective. Tfs!

Good warm cold color contrasts between the reddish bricks and the blue sky with excellent shadow detail and superb sharpness and framing. Punchy light contrasts and the arched ruins nicely frame the blue sea at right. Have a nice week!

I like the soft pastel colors reminiscent of a watercolour painting. Well composed with good sharpness and excellent lighting and low saturation. The row of tombstones in the fg add interest, & the tree at left nicely frames the centrepiece stone church. Tfs!
ChrisJ (93406) 2014-04-15 5:56
Amazing repetition of the vertical towers and the dark shadowed village contrasts well against the snow covered fg and hills to give a nice graphic element. Good sharpness and the blue sky contrasts well against the red roofs. Tfs!
ChrisJ (93406) 2014-04-15 5:52
I like the double purple circles both of which have been carefully framed and left with good breathing space right around. Good sharpness and nice reflections in the shiny floor. The lost tourist makes a fine focal point. The low light levels indoors have been well managed. Tfs!

The colorful exercise equipment looks similar to those I have seen in Turkish parks, like in Erzurum. I like how the 2 dark trees either side frame the image and provide a graphic element. The unusual brick structure resembling the English letter "f" with a 1 at right is most unusual and makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

A wonderful blue sky with a superb back drop of majestic, snow capped mountains. I might have cropped a little higher in the front so that the pipeline starts in the bottom left hand corner. Good graphism of the lone tree at left which also helps to frame the bg. Tfs!

Thanks for showing this. I recall it was closed by the time I arrived around 8pm after a very full day travelling around Paris, so it is nice to see what I missed. It certainly looks very impressive! Good sharpness and well managed low light levels. Tfs!

The distinctive red double decker London buses contrast superbly against the blue sky and the distorted reflection adds an abstract look and feel to this superb street scene. Good density levels and excellent colour, sharpness and saturation. Tfs!
ChrisJ (93406) 2014-04-15 5:31
A glorious carpet of red tulip flowers in the fg echoed in the back with a secondary carpet of orange, nicely sandwiching the green lawn between. I like the tree shadow. Good density levels that have given punchy light contrasts. Tfs!
