I like the rainbow at left and the superb colour, saturation and sharpness. Nicely composed into thirds of water, falls, and sky. The bg highrise contrasts well against the natural fg elements. The walkways at right add interest. Tfs!

The arch makes a fine focal point and allows the view a glimpse of the bg scene. The steps at right add fine lead in lines to the upper balcony and deep linear perspective. Excellent sharpness and natural looking pastel colours. The parked motor cycle makes a good secondary focal point. Tfs!

The meandefring stream provides good lead in lines and natural perspective. Superb warm vs cold colour contrasts between the orange red earthe and the reflected blue skylight in the water. The people add scale and context. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

Well framed and composed with plenty of breathing space right around the picturesque Swiss chalet. The lush green grass is immediately eyecatching. I like the sidelighting revealing the contours and textures of the landscape. Tfs!

The intricate Islamic art detail has been well captured here on account of the superb sharpness. I like the effective tight framing and the top and side lighting has brought out the fine textural details. Nice repetition of patterns and shapes. Excellent graphism and shadow detail. Tfs!

The red barge contrasts superbly against the blue grey sky. Good sharpness and a nice contrast between the old and the new with the older waterfront residential properties juxtaposed against the newer bg highrise buildings. The blue sky makes a wonderful backdrop. The riverfront building at far left seems to be very popular with the crowds. Tfs!

I visited Pompei last year and the site is massive, much bigger than I expected. I like the diffused light and dramatic clouds. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The square foundation structure in the centre makes a fine focal point. Good shadow detail and the horizon has been well positioned off centre. Tfs!

A spectacular sunset with perfect sharpness and fine graphic elements. Good color contrasts between the yellow orange and blue. The 7 sisters building is nicely framed between 2 sleek skyscrapers. Well composed with the horizon line well off centre. Excellent shadow detail and density levels. Tfs!

Missed this one. Smart choice of a vertical frame with fantastic fg reflections and good sharpness and saturation. The pale honey yellow color of the bg buildings contrasts well against the blue sky. The fg fishing boats vaguely resemble Venetian gondolas. Tfs!

Good diffused light on a cloudy day and well framed and composed with plenty of breathing space right around the lighthouse. Good sharpness and the deserted picnic table adds a sad melancholic mood. The yellow flowers add a welcome splash of color. Tfs!

I like the warm cold colour contrast between the blue sky and the yellow and red bee colors of the plane. Good sharpness and saturation. I like the addition of the much smaller biplane top right. The 4 propellor blades nicely divide the image into quadrants. Tfs!

It's hard not to take great photos in Venice. I took around 125 shots and almost every one of them was a winner. likewise here. Splendid color contrasts with good sharpness and the canal adding nice lead in lines and perspective. Good reflections too. The people add scale and animate the shot. Merci et bon semaine!

Good shadow detail in the sculpture with excellent graphism against the lighter bg sky and excellent sharpness. The circle frames the statue nicely and good to include breathing space around the margins. The bird at right is an interesting additional element. Well framed and composed. Tfs!

There are similar blue grottoes in Capri, Greece and Turkey so it's nice to see one more from Malta. The prow of the boat adds nice lead in lines and perspective. Superb warm cold color contrasts between the blue and yellow. The natural rock arch frames the bg scene nicely. Good sharpness density levels and saturation. Tfs!

The checked path adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective towards the bg street. Good sharpness, and excellent colour and saturation. A marvellous blue sky backdrop to contrast against the yellow green vegetation. The flowers add a welcome splash of colour. The swirl patterns add interest. Tfs!

An exceptional shot with fantastic sharpness, symmetry and composition. Nice repetition of the posts at left and the lights and design patterns in the walls and ceiling of this curved interior shot. The red floor contrasts well against the blue hues to give a splendid warm vs cold colour contrast. The K35 / 36 signs add balance to the composition. Tfs!

A superb upward pov with a nice minimalist composition and a semi abstract framing. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the inverted v shaped support wires. The 2 lighter toned structures left and right add good symmetry. The minimalist colour works well too. Good shadow detail in the underbelly. Tfs!
