I like the dappled light and the high pov. Good sharpness and smart choice of a vertical format to accentuate and emphasise the height. The soft pastel colours work well here and the subtle warm vs cold color contrast between the blue grey sky and the shadowed roofs against the warmer pale yellow gold tones on the railings in the fg is superb. Tfs.

A superb nocturnal shot of the colorfully illuminated fountain, with splendid sharpness and saturation. The iconic Eiffel Tower at left is the piece de resistance. I like the double tiered wedding cake styled fountain and its ornate statues. The warm colour tones of red and yellow contrast well against the blue black sky. Good repetition of the white pinpoints of light. Tfs.

Magnificent symmetrical reflections with good sharpness, colour and saturation. The dual sides of the canal add excellent lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective withe converging lines towards the top left. The diagonal axis of the water adds dynamism too. The tour boat makes a fine focal point and good warm cold color contrasts. Tfs.

An elegant and stately colonial white building with reasonably good sharpness. The people provide scale and animate the scene. Nice reflections in the fg fountain and the white statues enhance the overall effect of opulence. Good repetition of the tall palm trees on the horizon. Tfs.

This looks similar to my shot
But yours has a nice silhouetted balloon in it that I was unable to capture within my frame. A superb sunrise with fiery red colours and excellent sharpness and saturation. Nice repetition of the fairy chimneys. Tfs.

A fabulous high pov overlooking the pristine lake. The solitary yacht at left makes a fine focal point. Wonderful colour and saturation with fantastic reflections in the mirror like surface of the water. The warm vs cold color contrast between the blue and orange is excellent. The fog at right adds mood. Tfs.

I like the repetition of the white houses and how one building in yellow is nicely breaking the pattern. Fantastic sharpness and attractive minimalist colors. Good sharpness but I might have been tempted to crop about half of the white featureless sky. The diffused light works well here. Tfs.

This looks lovely. A wonderful elevated vantage point with the blue lake forming an instant focal point. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. I like the light striking the tops of the trees at right. The drop in elevation in the central bg is unusual and adds interest. Excellent saturation and density levels. Tfs.

Good sharpness with effective tight framing around the neoclassical Greco Roman style building yet still with plenty of breathing space right around. The Corinthian style decorated columns add repetition and the 2 cylindrical central columns contrast well against the squared off rectangular ones. Tfs.

A good tonal range in this superb black and white image with excellent sharpness and graphic elements. The diagonal shadow at the top adds dynamism. I like tye angled pov showing 2 facades of the balcony and its railings. Good shadow detail and effective tight framing. Tfs.
ChrisJ (99100) 2015-02-25 20:19
Effective tight framing on the snow covered branches of the tree with good sharpness and lighting contrasts, accentuated by the lighter tones of the snow contrasting against the darker shadowed areas. I like the textural details and lighting at right where the sunlight has caught the snow. Tfs.

The dark green conifer tree at right adds a nice graphic element to this snowy winter scene. Good sharpness and a marvellous blue sky. The fg snowbank adds depth and layering and I like the shadow play upon it. The jagged snow capped peaks form a majestic backdrop. Tfs.

This looks a bit like the painted hills of Oregon in the US. I like the zig zag patterns of the rock layers and their bright warm colours of red, yellow and orange mixed in alternating layers with white and brown. A good high pov with excellent sharpness and saturation. The cemetery at right resembles a miniature city. Tfs.
ChrisJ (99100) 2015-02-25 19:33
The red Turkish flag sets up a fine warm cold colour contrast against the blue sky. Good sharpness and density levels. I like the contrast in the cool lush green fg and the arid hot looking upper cliff and citadel. The people in the shade under the trees add scale and animate the scene. Tfs.
ChrisJ (99100) 2015-02-25 19:29
The strong back light has been well managed with a wonderful reflected sheen on the water. I like the minimalist colour and graphic elements. Good textural details in the fg sand and gravel on the beach. The bird in flight is a bonus. Tfs.
ChrisJ (99100) 2015-02-25 19:25
A fantastic warm vs cold colour contrast between the deep blue sky and the orange Hotel Piast sign as well as the dark red rooftop and the lighter toned red bowtie at the entrance. Good sharpness and saturation. Excellent density levels with contrasted light and shadow details. The people add scale. Tfs.

A superb blue hour shot of this charming piazza with good sharpness and saturation. The people add scale and animate the scene. Well composed using the rule of thirds with the horizon appropriately placed above the centre line. Nice repetition of the columns and arches in the bg. Tfs.

The yellow orange mask at left contrasts well against the blue colours to its right. Good sharpness and saturation. Effective tight framing and superb density levels. Nice reflections in the glass tabletop. A good exposure on the bright highlights. Excellent graphic elements of contrasting dark and light tones. Tfs!

Good use of a shallow dof to isolate and emphasise the fg raindrops on the windscreen. I like the oof bg and the red yellow and orange circles. Their color contrasts strongly against the predominant grey tones. Nice repetition of the water droplets across the screen to give a pleasing semi abstract view. Tfs.

The tiger prawns look nice and fresh. Good sharpness throughout and the highlights are well exposed with only negligible oe. Good warm cold colour contrasts between the cyan and red. Effective tight framing and the diagonal row of batfish or butter bream add dynamism. Not sure what they are called over there. Tfs.
