Lofoten Islands are on my to do list when I go back to Norway. The weather was similarly bleak and raining as well when I was at the turnoff heading to Bodo. I met some Italians on the ferry who were detouring to Lofoten but I kept heading north. Good sharpness, a nice diffused light and interesting textural details in the fg rocks and sand / snow. Tfs.

Good sharpness with a pleasant diffused light and wonderful color and saturation offered by the fresh fruit and vegetables. I might have cropped a little from the bottom so that the trolley rail at right starts in the bottom right corner. Tfs.

Good job on the exposure for the stained glass windows. It takes accurate metering to get it just right. Excellent sharpness and wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue tones. I like the angled pov. Tfs.

A superb reflections with nice repetition of the ripples and good sharpness with wonderful warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue and yellow red hues. The blue lighthouse at left adds context to the harbor full of moored boats. Tfs.

I like the repetition of the dancers and the woman in orange rather than pink nicely breaks the pattern. The blue pants that the men are wearing set up a superb warm cold color contrast against the pink and orange. Their stylish hats add interest. Good sharpness and a nice diffused light. Tfs.

A superb daily life scene of the 2 artists at work with effective tight framing and good sharpness. Excellent color and saturation. A pleasant diffused light and the warm orange red colors contrast well against the splashes of blue. Tfs.

Amazing repetition of the windsurfer para-sails with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. I like the repetition of the 4 yacht like windsurfers on the beach at left. The spires of the cathedrals nicely break the uniform skyline. Tfs.

Bonjour Jean Jacques,
The vertical format works well here and the decision to start the diagonal line in the bottom left corner and crop in the top right was a good one. Excellent sharpness and superb color and saturation with good density levels. The repetitive pattern of the stripes is mesmerizing. Tfs.

This looks similar to the view from the teahouse overlooking the Tigris River. A real pity much of this area will be flooded by the new reservoir downstream. The clear blue sky makes a good backdrop. Excellent sharpness and well composed with good shadow detail. Tfs.

The deep blue Mediterranean sky makes a superb backdrop to the ruined temple, with good sharpness and a fine, angled pov. The yellow red color of the stone contrasts well against the coller blue tones of the sky. Tfs.

I think that Turkey has more ancient (antique) ruins of Greek origin than Greece itself! The Ionian bull horn design of the columns here is evident. Good sharpness and the fluted white marble columns contrast superbly against the blue sky. One of the few I haven't yet seen so tfs!

I like the bank of distant fog shrouding the horizon behind the arched bridge. Apparently San Francisco is also often enveloped in fog. Good sharpness and the strong backlight has been well managed. The repetition of the partly silhouetted fg yachts and their masts adds a nice graphic element to the image. Tfs.

I love the graphic elements offered by the black and white chequerboard pattern of the of the pavement and the converging lines and perspective. Good sharpness with excellent color and saturation at the back. The silhouetted people add scale and the blue sky makes a superb backdrop. Tfs.

The thrill certainly hasn't gone. His music today sounds just as good as it did in the early 1970's when I was still in high school. A real pity he left us so early. He was one of the greats. Good tribute with excellent sharpness and lighting. Tfs.

Nice repetition of the fg haybales with good sharpness and a nice warm vs cold color contrast between the red roofs and blue sky. Excellent color and saturation. I like the arrow shaped rise in the middle formed by the steep hill. Tfs.

Good evening Beverly,
I might have tried a higher f stop to get all of the fg bluebells sharply in focus but this is still very nice as is. I like the cracked mud texture on the bark on the tree at left. Good sharpness in the mid and bg. Good density levels and lighting. Tfs.

Good graphic elements of the white lighter toned swans against the darker toned water. Superb sharpness, color and saturation. Nice reflections in the water and the cygnets look adorable. The white flowering bush overhanging the water adds interest. Tfs.

The warm yellow red color of the wall at right contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and amazing repetition of the green vineyards. The snowcapped peak top left makes a majestic sentinel in the sky. Tfs.
