Europe is most certainly a genuine treasure trove for impressive religious art and here is yet another superb example, this time in Hungary. A fine upward pov with good sharpness and natural looking colour. The diffused light works well here. Tfs.

This looks like a Silvio shot! Good placement of the picturesque village on the central horizon and its warm reddish brown color of the buildings contrasts well against the blue sky. I like the contrast between the flat fg with the ripening wheat and the hilly bg. The grove of uniformly spaced olive trees adds interest. Tfs.

I miss Istiqlal Street. I used to go there frequently. The Shake Shack in Beyoglu was a favourite hangout. Good inclusion of the tourist tram and excellent sharpness and tight framing. The shallow dof works well here and the yellow contrasts well against the cooler grey blue hues. Tfs.

I was there in 2008. Its an innovative piece of architecture for sure and was ahead of its time. Nowadays there are equally impressive and bigger bridges in Turkey but this one still captures peoples imagination. Good close up emphasising the textural details and warm cold color contrast between the orange red and blue sky. Tfs.

A very nice traditional Japanese garden with the more modern city as a backdrop. Perfect density levels that have given ideal saturation and crisp clean whites with solid blacks. Wonderful reflections with good warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue. Tfs.

Good dof and sharpness all the way through from the fg to the bg. Nice textural details with excellent color and saturation. The bg poplar trees echo the vertical shapes of the Ionic style ruined columns. Tfs.

Bonsoir, cher Gildas,
The fg apple tree adds depth as well as a spalsh of red here and there within the tree full of ripening fruit. The red contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and saturation with a fine view of the harbour beyond. Tfs.

A superb city sunset with good sharpness and saturation. The partially silhouetted highrise buildings provide a wonderful graphic element. Good repetition of patterns and shapes. The ever present cranes strongly suggest more buildings are going up. Tfs.

I like the missing door panel bottom right allowing a glimpse beyond of the orange red terracotta potplant. Good sharpness and the street looks similar to Naples in southern Italy. Excellent pastel colors and saturation. Tfs.

A superb elevated high pov overlooking the harbor and offering an expansive view. Good sharpness and excellent depth. I was going to say it looks similar to Sydney Harbour, as I thought it was in Portugal. Then I looked at the title and the penny dropped! The diagonal axis of the city tower blocks adds dynamism. Tfs.

The yellow sunlit castle walls contrast superbly against the deep blue black sky. Good color and saturation with excellent sharpness. Nice repetition of the poplar trees. It appears to be a windy day with some slight motion blur. Tfs.

Nice repetition of the geese across the fg part of the frame, with a luxuriant cover of green grass. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. Good graphic elements with the partially silhouetted trees against the sunlit fg. The blue sky makes a nice backdrop. Tfs.

I like the slightly oof extreme fg sharpening as the eye progresses into the image. Good perspective and lead in lines with the rows of vineyards. Excellent repetition of patterns and shapes. The bg blue sky contrasts well against the yellow green vegetation. Tfs.

The fg yellow flowers contrast well against the bg blue sky. Good sharpness and the diagonal axis of the road gives dynamism. Perspective has been well managed placing the verticals centrally. I like the angled pov showing 2 facades and the superb shadow detail. Tfs.

The pale yellow red sand of the bg dune contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the fg boat counterbalances the distant boat at right up close to the dune. The muddy reddish brown color of the river accentuates the warm cold color contrast. Tfs.

Ah yes, I see it. Good diffused light and maximum shadow detail as a compensatory bonus for the overcast skies. It's possible to add a fake blue sky in photoshop, but you need to be careful of reflections. Grey reflections of a blue sky give the game away! Tfs.
ChrisJ (101900) 2015-05-24 5:08
A splendid high and elevated pov with vibrant colour and nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue skylight reflected in the water and the red roof. There is a similar bridge at Middle Harbour in Sydney. Tfs.
ChrisJ (101900) 2015-05-24 5:02
Punchy light contrasts and the red roof at left contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and perspective has been well managed. The yellow streak at the bottom of the building enhances the effect. The cp has done its job admirably. Tfs.

Missed this one. The serene Chinese garden has been well captured. Good sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. The characteristic bright red painted buildings are typically Chinese. The design appears to be a fusion of several styles. The weirdly shaped limestone rocks buttressing many Chinese gardens are missing here. Tfs.
