Looks similar to the Meteora Monasteries. Good sharpness and a fine upward pov with good color and saturation. The red part at top left contrasts well against the grey-blue sky. I like the circular building at right with the cross. Tfs.

A good upward pov on the bridge with excellent sharpness and saturation, especially the intense blue of the water. The big trucks and semitrailers speeding across the graceful arched bridge provide scale. Tfs.

The Amphitheatre is in surprisingly good condition considering its age. Good downward pov and excellent sharpness. The 2 human figures provide scale and animate the scene. Good perspective and lead in lines with the steps either side. Tfs.

Its certainly looking a lot cooler than Europe where it has been 40 to even 50c in some parts over the past fortnight. I like the fantastic backdrop of snowcapped mountains here and the excellent sharpness and saturation. Tfs.

The path at left adds strong lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. The chateau castle structure is well positioned near the vp. Backlight has been well managed and sharpness and shadow detail are excellent. Tfs.

Bonjour, cher Stephen,
Even though it might look mundane to a local, the French text gives this image an exotic look. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. Effective tight framing and perspective has been well managed. Tfs.

Striking warm versus cold color contrasts between the red tiled pontoon and the blue water and sky. Excellent sharpness and wonderful dual lead in lines with the rails to give deep linear perspective and symmetry. Tfs.

A fantastic shot from Switzerland with the fg flowers adding a lot to the shot. The yellows and reds set up a marvellous warm cold color contrast against the blue sky. The snowcapped peaks in the distance make a nice backdrop. Tfs.

A marvellous saturated blue sky backdrop, with fantastic sharpness and great saturation. Smart choice of a vertical format to accentuate the height of the steeple. Good sharpness and excellent textural details on the walls at left. Tfs.

Creative use of desaturation and I am itching to see the original in the workshop. Good textural and tonal ranges with superb sharpness, The woman with the umbrella is well positioned in the frame. Tfs.

There are some lovely orthodox churches in former Yugoslavia and here is yet another example. I saw a nice one in Trebelje a few days ago. Punchy light contrasts with good sharpness and framing. Greetings from Budva in Montenegro!

I had my eye on this particular town for a weekend escape when I was living in Hodonin. Looks like a nice city well worth a visit. Good sharpness and color. Looks a little like Cracow or Wroclaw in neighboring Poland. Tfs.

Good sharpness and well framed and composed. I like the dual rows of yellow flowers leading the eye towards the door. The warm cold color contrast with the blue sky is also excellent. I like the separation of the iron cross from the shadow at left with a thin wedge of highlighted stone. Tfs.

I think this is more my style of travel than the big floating hotels of 8-10 stories or decks above the water line with more below. More relaxed and less crowded. Good sharpness and color and well framed and composed. Tfs.

A scene I was lucky enough to see in person around 30 years ago. I think I loaded a shot to TE of this spectacular geological formation. Good blue hour shot in the Blue Mountains with the artificial lighting tastefully applied. Excellent sharpness. Tfs.

The weather was kind to you here with a blue sky, strong light contrasts and nice saturated colors. The 2 men at right atop the cliff add scale and animate the scene. The steep mountains do look like the letter A! Tfs.
