I was lucky enough to visit Dresden last year and it certainly worth seeing. The blue hour shot depicted here looks great. Adequate sharpness and fantastic warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and reddish yellow illumination on the fg path and bg buildings. Tfs!

I like the reflected blue skylight in the windows. Good sharpness and the red brick chimneys & roof contrast well with the blue sky to give a superb warm cold color contrast. The fg fence and shrubs add depth and layering. Tfs!

The style of art on the exterior facade of the building reminds me of Oberammergau in neighboring Bavaria (Bayerne). The police car is a welcome presence in a lawless era. I like the repetition of the window boxes with flowers at right. Tfs!

Nice catch of the cyclists enjoying the day. The path adds strong lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. Good sharpness and the contrasting hot and cold colors of their attire (red and blue) provide a good warm col color contrast. Tfs!

Stunning coastal scenery with the hilltop tower at right adding a good focal point. Excellent sharpness and superb warm cold color contrasts between the blue sea and sky and the dry straw yellow grass. The distant lighthouse provides an excellent secondary focal point. Tfs!

Good to include the distinctly Greek style of architecture at left with its classical Doric columns. I am curious about the loudspeakers mounted on the street lamps and posts. Perhaps people are hard of hearing or there is an important government building nearby? The crowd animate the scene. Tfs!

Fantastic backlighting with marvellous warm cold color contrasts between the sunlit yellow Autumn leaves and the hazy blue bg shadows. The dirt path adds strong lead in lines. Excellent sharpness and framing. Tfs!

The dark upper brick story of the church contrasts well against the lighter toned sky to give an excellent graphic element. The fg shrubs add depth and layering. The color poster adds interest too. Tfs!

The meandering road adds strong lead in lines. Good sharpness and wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the dry yellow grass and the blue sky. Good repetition of the contour patterns on the hillside. Tfs!

Elvis has left the building! The distinctive giant red guitar advertising the Hard Rock Cafe contrasts well with the blue sky. Some music to set the scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiuOL1g4Q-I

Lovely symmetrical reflections of the white swan with its s shaped neck dredging the water for snacks to eat. A perfect exposure on the bright sunlit highlights. Nice repetition of the fallen leaves floating in the water. Tfs!

Nice repetition of the red and white Turkish flags with good sharpness. I like the shimmering backlight reflected off the choppy water. The blue boat at the back and its orange lifebuoys enhance the colors. Tfs!

Nice repetition of the statues adorning the bg building and it yellow facade contrasts well with the reflected bluye skylight in the windows. Good sharpness and the fg al fresco diners animate the scene. Tfs!

Good use of a shallow dof with excellent fg sharpness on the smiling fg man and the assorted bric a brac on the table. A pleasant diffused light with soft shadows and superb colour and saturation. Nice textural details in the worn walking stick. Tfs!
