The old red brick church contrasts splendidly against the blue sky to give a wonderful warm vs cold color contrast. Good sharpness and saturation. Perspective has been well managed. A fine upward pov also. Tfs.

The fg building dwarfs the yellow taxis parked in front, but the 2 tall skyscrapers in the bg take the dwarfing to new heights (pun intended). Good sharpness and a nice contrast between the old and the new. Tfs.

I at first thought the white flowers were sheep judging from the thumbnail. They add depth and their lighter tones contrast well against the darker tones of the green grass. The people add scale and animate the scene. Excellent sharpness throughout. The clear blue sky makes a great backdrop. Tfs.

Good sharpness and the fg tree anchors the shot and makes a fine focal point before the ye catches the lovely reflections in the water and looking a little more closely, the white swans. The reflected blue skylight contrasts well against the yellow green vegetation. Tfs.

For sure Lisbon has some stunning artwork scattered throughout the city, even on the metro platforms underground, with each stations art distinct from others. Effective tight framing, good sharpness and vibrant color with excellent saturation. Tfs.

The pale yellow cream facades of the buildings contrast well against the blue sky to give a good warm vs cold color contrast. Good sharpness and the colorful flowers add a welcome splash of vivid colors. Tfs

A superb aerial shot with a nice, well-managed backlight that still has good exposure levels plus the wonderful shimmering light on the sea. Nice repetition of the islands. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Excellent pastel colors. Tfs.

A superb reflection with the grid pattern of the modern highrise adding graphic elements and framing of each individual square. I like the distorted patterns and their variety. Good sharpness and attractive minimalist colors of blue and grey. Tfs.

Nice motion blur from the long time exposure on the water that has given a soft a silky look. Good sharpness elsewhere and a wonderful warm cold color contrast between the faint orange-pink sunset colors and the predominant blue tones. Tfs.

The heat haze is palpable here. Good sharpness and the arid desert environment is well illustrated. A nice warm cold color contrast between the red earth and the blue sky. Both jets are well placed on the 1/3 axis. Tfs.

Nice repetition of the stairs at left leading into the lake, presumably for passengers alighting boats. Good graphic elements too between the lighter and darker tones. Wonderful sharpness and well framed and composed. Great reflections and a nice blue sky. Tfs.

The piles of stone sculpture reminds me of a Mongolian custom of placing a stone atop a pile before embarking on a long voyage to bring good luck and a safe passage across the desert sands and rocky, arid terrain. Nice reflections and a fine zen mood. Tfs.

2 for the price of 1! A real bargain with these 2 lovely rainbows! Good sharpness overall. It looks like it was windy as the fg bushes are motion blurred. Beautiful color and saturation. Well composed with the horizon line on the lower horizontal 1/3 axis. Tfs.

The thrashed yellow rye debris contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The people add life and animate the scene in this superb daily life shot. I like their green branch brooms! Tfs.

A superb orange skied sunset with the rippled bow waves in the fg water adding interest. Good sharpness and the orange contrast well against the grey-blue to give a pleasing warm cold colour contrast. Beautiful repetition of the moored boats at right. Tfs.

Looks like a Chinese watercolor painting! Good sharpness and nice repetition of the goldfish or Koi. I am not an expert and cannot tell the difference. Good sharpness and nice reflections. The red flowers add a welcome splash of warm colors. Tfs.

A spectacular aerial view of the mountain lake from an extremely high vantage point. Good sharpness and I like the repetition of the radial drainage erosion patterns on the near bare walls of the tarn. The snow top right adds good graphic elements. Tfs.

A nice contrast between the rounded logs and the chopped firewood. Good sharpness and each of the 2 images compliments the other. Somebody has been very busy with the axe. They deserve a warm and cosy winter for their efforts! Tfs.
