Brings back fond memories of the magnificent Annapurnas near Pokhara in Nepal from Sarankot. Good relief from the sidelight catching only the protruding ridges and leaving the niches in shadow. Excellent sharpness and the blue and white colors go well together. Tfs!

Even on a cloudy day it still looks great! Good sharpness and nice transparency of the clear blue green water. The curving esplanade at right adds great lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. The yellow building contrasts well against the blue and blue grey tones. Tfs!

It certainly looks active too with the denuded scarred summit bereft of trees. Good sharpness and the lush green rice paddies are wonderful in the fg. I like the high pov. The coconut trees enhance the tropical look and feel. Tfs!

Firstly I like the contrast and juxtaposing of the fg tram with the bg tram at right. Secondly I like the reflected blue sky light on the tram at left color contrasting with the bright yellow facade, and how this is mirrored in reverse on the tram at right with a blue facade and yellow trim. Tfs!

The red Cyrillic lettering contrasts superbly against the blue sky and water to give a wonderful warm vs cold color contrast. Good sharpness and the couple right off centre add scale and a welcome human element. The bg strip of green and houses add interest. Tfs!

Hello Jean Jacques,
Lovely pastel colors in the sky amplified in the perfectly symmetrical reflection with nice warm cold color contrasts between the orange and blue. Good sharpness and well composed minimalist shot with just the water, sky, and some boats, and the bg tower. Tfs!

This reminds me a little of the leaning tower of Pisa. Good upward pov with interesting design and good sharpness and nice repetition of patterns and shapes. Excellent shadow detail in the facade and the strong backlight has been well managed. Tfs!

A superb big sky shot from Montana. I like the snow capped peaks on the horizon which add depth. Good sharpness and nice graphism of the weathered fg fence at right. A nice tonal range in the grey and white clouds. The yellow green grass contrasts well against the blue sky too. Tfs!

The dark shadows on the fg stairs add a nice graphic element to enhance the effect of repetition. Good sharpness and nice warm versus cold colour contrasts between the yellow orange and reddish pink facades of the 3 main buildings and the bg blue sky. Tfs!

A superb blue hour shot from Chicago. Nice motion blur of the water plumes and superb reflections in the fountain, with splendid warm vs cold color contrasts between the hot pink & yellow illumination and the blue sky. The city skyline makes a great backdrop. Tfs!

The running boy in blue and red attire is eye-catching and animates the scene. Good sharpness and thye town square and al fresco dining areas add interest. A nice blue sky and good sharpness. The 2 bg towers enhance the scene. Tfs!

A superb decisive moment shot with the shadowed woman perfectly positioned against the sunlit background to give a marvellous graphic effect. Goof use of the old stone arch as a framing device for the bg orange pink tower, which colour contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Tfs!

A fine Autumn shot with wonderful symmetrical reflections in the relatively still water and superb warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and golden foliage and the red facade of the boat. Excellent sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

The flowering purple jacarandas remind me of October in east coast Australia when they are in full bloom there. They look equally lovely in Spain at the opposite time of year. The colourful, ubiquitous oleander trees enhance the effect. Good sharpness and density levels. Tfs!

A superb sunset shot with lovely warm vs cold colour contrasts between the orange tinted clouds and the blue sky and fg blue grey asphalt road. Nice reflections in the Mediterranean sea and the fg palms at right add a good graphic element. Tfs!

The red roof and spire of the old stone cathedral contrast splendidly against the blue sky to give a superb warm vs cold colour contrast. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts, and it seems you struck a day with no rain or cloud which is nearly always a bonus! Tfs!

I never knew of the existence this mermaid although I've seen the ones in Copenhagen and Warsaw. I have been to Marmaris and Dalaman as well as Fethiye but don't recall hearing or seeing anything at all about it, although here it is, large as life! Tfs!

The red brick facde of the building contrasts superbly against the cyan trim around the windows and door. The woman adds scale and graphism against the dark interior and doorway. Good sharpness and density levels. Tfs!

A colourful ensemble of stuffed toys and cartoon characters including Spiderman and Minnie Mouse. Good sharpness, saturation and reflections. Nice repetition in the fg of the various bears and cows with even the odd rabbit and elephant! Tfs!

I know this spot thanks to Malgo! Nice reflection in the fg fountain which I seem to recall was bone dry when I was there in August. The red and yellow facades of the reconstructed buildings contrast well against the blue skylight in the water. Tfs!
