I like the repetition of the turquoise domes on the bg mosques. Good graphism and silhouettes of the fg tourists. They look exhausted and are relaxing for a moment. Excellent sharpness and well composed with good color and saturation. Tfs!

Lovely reflections in the tranquil waterway with good sharpness and soft pastel colours. The curve of the esplanade at left nicely leads the eye towards the back of the image. Nice repetition of the palm trees. Tfs!

Bonjour Jean Jacques,
Nice aerial perspective with receding tones in the hills. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. I like the swans on the fg water. The 2 steeples counterbalance each other. Nice warm cold color contrasts at right between the red roofs and blue water. Tfs!

Fantastic sight of the camels along the horizon in a caravan. The thumbnail does not do this justice. Good sharpness and textural details in the fg salt. I like the minimalist colour & composition. Well framed and composed. Tfs!

A superb alpine tarn with wonderful reflections. The mists adds mood mystery and atmosphere. Good sharpness. The fg plants add depth and layering to the composition. Good graphism of the dark bg peaks and effective tight framing. Tfs!

The reddish brown coats of the cows contrast well against the cyan coloured lake in the bg. Good sharpness and saturation. The majestic mountains in the bg with snow on the upper peaks make a superb backdrop. The waterfalls add interest. Tfs!

Adequate sharpness and well composed with excellent colour saturation and density levels. I like the warm cold color contrast between the yellow masts and the blue sea and sky. The Galata Tower at left makes a good focal point. Tfs!

A well composed shot with the horizon positioned on the 1/3 axis. The diagonal, curved back of the boat adds dynamism. Good sharpness and the yellow circle creates a fine warm cold colour contrast. An excellent high pov and the distant boat makes a good focal point. Tfs!

Nice reflections in the still waters of the canal with good sharpness and realistic pastel colours. I like the graphism of the b&w building at right with the cross hatch beams. The big green tree at left counterbalances the composition and contrasts against the man-made surroundings. Tfs!

Nothing stays the same. Almost everything is constantly changing. Good to reminisce though! The crowds add life and scale to the colorful backdrop of buildings in alternating colors. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs!

Superb sharpness and a good overhead pov. The two sides of the expressway add excellent diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. Excellent graphism of the darker street lights in the distance against the bright white sky. Tfs!
ChrisJ (94392) 2014-07-24 7:23
An excellent diffused light that has given maximum shadow detail and softened the hard shadows. Good sharpness and the dual sides of the grey road add superb lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. Tfs!
ChrisJ (94392) 2014-07-24 7:18
I like the imposing and stylish Ionic Greek columns and their repetition. Good shadow detail and sharpness. The curved fg flowerbed adds interest. The tree branches add depth, graphism and frame the urban scene nicely. Tfs!

I was lucky enought o visit this spot in Rome last year. Good sharpness and I like the repetition of the colonnaded fg columns. Nice symmetry with the 2 bg domed cathedrals. A wonderful blue sky to cap it all off. Merci!

Good evening Resat,
Nice symmetrical reflections in the wet pavement with good sharpness and superb sharpness and pastel colours. The colorfully attired people add life and scale. The bg monument looks a little like the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. The statues atop it add interest. Tfs!
ChrisJ (94392) 2014-07-24 7:02
Excellent natural perspective with the dual sides of the stream leading the ye deep into the image towards the craggy, bg peaks. Splendid sharpness and a marvellous blue sky to contrast against the yellow green vegetation clinging to the steep hillside. Tfs!
ChrisJ (94392) 2014-07-24 6:59
Not only red tulips, but orange, yellow and pink as well! Good sharpness and amazing linear perspective and vanishing point. Superb warm vs cold color contrasts between the flowers and blue sky. Good sidelight from the left. Tfs!
ChrisJ (94392) 2014-07-24 6:51
Good inclusion of the forested green bg to act as both a border and a contrast to the fg industrial area and port. The u shape of the land at right nicely leads the eye around the image. Excellent sharpness with soft pastel colors. Tfs!
ChrisJ (94392) 2014-07-24 6:49
I only made it as far as Side then back to Antalya and onward to Konya, so tfs this to see what I missed. A superb bird's eye view with the wonderful cobalt blue and turquoise colors of the Mediterranean visible from this superb high vantage point. Good sharpness and the red brick castle at left contrasts well against the blue sea. Tfs!

Salut Jean Jacques
A good close up, detailed shot, of the wooden roof of the church. I can count each tile! It would be too far away in a wider angled shot to pick out such detail, and you'd lose the balance of the 2 dark trees framing it, if you had gone for a vertical frame as suggested in another critique. You made the right choice here. Merci!
