A superb aerial view of Saint-Hyacinthe with good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. The river at right makes a fine reference point. Nice to see the rolling green fields and forest interspersed with the town. Tfs!

I like the sunlit yellow cloud contrasting against the inky blue black parts of the clouds. The tiny aircraft turning is a superb focal point. Good sharpness and a fine profiled view of the London skyline. Tfs!

I like the arrow shaped structure at left, which balances the composition with its larger sibling or parent at right. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red orange roofs and the blue sky with impeccable sharpness. Tfs!

I like the wide angled, panoramic format. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. Nice repetition of the boats with a superb warm vs cold colour contrast between the reddish brown architecture and the blue sky and water. Tfs!

The heavily eroded and weathered rocks could be mistaken for seals! Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Nice shadow detail with the lighter toned lichens jumping out. The patch of green moss and yellow top left add interest. Tfs!

A beautiful warm vs cold colour contrast between the reddish brown bridge above and the blue skylight reflected in the water below. Excellent repetition of the 3 bridge spans and superb sharpness and wide angled cropping. Tfs!

The splash of purple bougainvillea in the fg adds some welcome bright colour to augment the existing warm cold colour contrast, between the orange wall at right and the blue sky above. Good sharpness and excellent framing and saturation. Tfs!

I will have to check out the view from the gents when I am there tomorrow! Kracow was fun although Auschwitz was depressing. I like the sunset orange colour contrasting agsinst the portions of blue sky at right. Good sharpness and an amusing note. That sure is a very long ferry boat at right of the bridge! Tfs!

I love the little hillside village in the bottom left of this image. The snow capped peaks of the Himalayas top right add a counterbalancing focal point to the town. Nice warm vs cold colour contrasts between the sunlit yellow red mountainside and the blue sky. The cloud shadow adds a graphic element. Tfs!

A good daily life scene of the school girls trying to decide what books to purchase for the new school term. She looks a little confused and flabbergasted! Sharpness could be a bit higher but it's adequate. I like the diffused light and color despite the gloomy day. The orange and blue sign gives a marvellous warm versus cold color contrast and is an instant focal point! Tfs!

It's unusual to see Bulgarian kids doing break-dancing, which was popular in the West, around 30 years ago. I guess they are catching up on lost time as this would not have been possible when Bulgaria was part of the Iron Curtain. The other multi duplicated image at right seems more jazz ballet style and contrasts with the more populist style of dancing at right. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue attire too. Tfs!

Nice graphism added here by the side-lighting creating mirroring shadows to the columns, with good sharpness and saturation. Excellent shadow detail in the ceiling, and a nice warm vs cold color contrast between the blue sky and reddish yellow facade of the building and the wooden roof. Tfs!

A tranquil corner of the Pasadena shoreline in Newfoundland. The deserted beach, and overcast skies have given an almost melancholy mood. The diagonal shoreline adds dynamism. Good sharpness & well composed. The distant hills on the horizon in mist add mood and atmosphere. Tfs!

A wonderful high pov with a superb carpet and patch quilt effect of the different colored fields and flowers. The diagonal row of electric transformer towers and telegraph poles adds dynamism and also provides lead in lines and linear perspective. Good sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

Nice repetition of the arched bridges crossing above the narrow alley, with a pleasant diffused light and good sharpness. A fine upward pov and a nice reflected light off the shiny cobblestones. The oe bg is almost unavoidable in this genre of shot and is not overly irritating or detracting in any way. Superb use of perspective and vanishing point. Tfs!

The reddish brown wood contrasts well against the blue sky to give a superb warm vs cold colour contrast, accentuated by the red geraniums. Good sharpness and a wise choice of a vertical frame. Good density levels which have given a perfect exposure on the highlights and punchy light contrasts. Bon weekend!
ChrisJ (94756) 2014-08-08 4:07
Perfect in every way. Density levels, sharpness, color, saturation and framing are all superb. The reflections add interest and framing is excellent. The ref flowers in the window sill boxes add a nice splash of color as well as a good warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

Perhaps the strongest shot in this series, with perfect density and sharpness and excellent density levels giving clean whites, and blacks and good saturation. Excellent lighting too that gives relief to the contours and textures of every fold in the hills. Finally, a nice warm cold color contrast between the reddish brown mesa and the blue sky. Tfs!

The late afternoon early evening atmosphere looks peaceful and idyllic. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the orange skies and soft blue shadows in the fg. The men with red and blue shirts accentuate the warm cold color contrast. Nice repetition of the chairs with adequate sharpness. Tfs!

Thankyou for staying at TE for 8 years too! Love the warm cold color contrast here between the yellow cupolas of the church, the yellow gren leaves of the tree at left, and the blue sky. Good sharpness and a wise choice of a vertical frame. Good sharpness and shadow detail. Tfs!
