Wonderful warm versus cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and the red brick chimneys and yellow red green fg grass. Good sharpness and the highlights have been well exposed due to the superb density levels. The ivy covered facade at right adds interest. Bet it looks great in Autumn! Bon Dimanche!

Smart choice of a vertical format to accentuate the height of the bg tower. Good shadow detail in the facade of the church with excellent sharpness and a lovely splash of color in the fg with the blue and yellow flowers. Have a great week ahead!

Now all I need is Fix Hellas beer and some calamari to accompany this perfect setting for dining and relaxing. A nice daily life scene with good sharpness and color saturation. The triangular spur at left with the whitewashed stone village makes a fine backdrop. Tfs!

The woman in the green shirt inspecting the magnolia flowers makes a fine focal point. Good sharpness with a pleasant diffused light. Natural looking color and saturation. The path at left adds nice lead in lines. Have a good Sunday!

Looks like a collection of all day sucker lollypops! I am missing a little sharpness but the color, and repetitive patterns and shapes more than compensate. The backlit circle top left nicely breaks the pattern. Bon Dimanche!

I like the zig zag pattern of the shoreline at right. Superb shadow detail and muted colours and diffused light. Adds mood. Good framing and composition and the sunset forms a splendid backdrop. Have a nice week!

The banded patterns in the sky add a 'pastiche', eclectic & abstract look and feel to this superb b&w image. Nice repetitive herring bone patterns in the fg brick tiles with good sharpness and tonal range. Tfs!

The red flowering tree at the back and the yellow trim on the conical tree at right contrast superbly against the blue sky to give a marvellous warm cold colour contrast. Good sharpness and the concrete path adds dynamism and perspective. Maximum saturation works well here. Any more would be too much imho. Tfs!

Beautifully saturated with good density levels and punchy light contrasts. Effective tight framing and I like the warm vs cold colour contrast between the yellow facades of the buildings and the deep blue sky. Have a nice Sunday!

Punchy light contrasts with good sharpness and a nice angled pov. I like the warm cold color contrasts between the red brick facade and the blue sky and fg gates. Nice use of linear perspective and lead in lines. Bon Dimanche!

I like the long shadows raking across the beach and revealing the textural details. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. Well composed with the horizon level and well away from the centre. Nice bonus shot of Lisa too! Tfs!

The mural of the man and his boy fill in a large part of the dead space on the facade of the corner building. I like the angled pov and the diffused light. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red yellow and blue. Tfs!

Very good sharpness with wonderful silhouettes and graphism of the dark tree yet still with sufficient shadow detail to make out the perspective of the driveway or road in the fg. A marvelous sunset backdrop too. Tfs!

Wonderful symmetrical reflections in the mirror like surface of the placid water. Good sharpness and excellent warm cold color contrasts between the yellow foliage and the blue grey hazy wooded hill and its reflection. Tfs!

It's all relative I guess. Farmers in Australia would be overjoyed to get a week of rain but for a photographer it can be disappointing. The sad grey statue echoes the grey crying sky. Good use of a shallow dof. Have a nice day!

The old green car is well positioned in the frame on the 1/3 axis and I like the fg shadow play of light and shade, although I would either have included more at left or cropped the 1/2 person out altogether. Have a nice weekend!
ChrisJ (93372) 2014-04-13 9:01
A superb b&w image with good tonal range and light contrasts. aI like the high pov and the meandering zigzag stream at left. Nice repetition of the trees and the large fallen tree in the fg nicely breaks the pattern. Tfs!

The current Pope and his predecessor have been really good & have breathed new life into to papacy imho. Nice framing of St Peter's basilica in the bg with the fg arch. Good sharpness and graphic elements. Excellent shadow detail. Bon aperitif!
