Ciao Mauro and a big welcome back
It's a dream of mine to one day visit Sicily. The textural and tonal details revealed by the sidelight falling on the weathered columns at left are superb. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and yellow-red hued earth and ruins. Tfs.

Wow! Missed this one. Incredible repetition of the seabirds with fantastic graphic elements of their dark shadowed bodies against the white surf. The blue water alos sets up a good warm cold color contrast with the yellow red sand on the beach at left. Tfs.

Here the mountains look like an erupting volcano, with the cloud generated by the microclimate of the higher terrain apparently emitting out of the mountain itself at right. Good textural and tonal details in the snow. Tfs.

Your hike up from the carpark paid dividends in this superb shot. Good warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the yellow tints in the jagged peaks of Torres del Paine. Excellent sharpness and framing. You were brave to go there in mid winter! Tfs.

Nice to see that life goes on, even after 9/11 which destroyed the twin towers of the former WTC. The new Freedom Tower at left is standing tall and proud. The solitary yacht adds interest to the harbour. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs.

Chicago has the look of Melbourne in Australia. Good sharpness and a superb aerial view, presumably from yet another skyscraper. The blue colour of bg Lake Michigan contrasts well against the soft yellow sunlight bathing the forest of highrise buildings. Tfs.

Bonjour Nicolas ,
This one looks a little oversharpened but caught my eye anyway because it reminded me of a similar rural scene with cattle that could just as easily be in east coast Australia. The light is superb and the diagonal track adds strong lead in lines. Well cropped and composed. Tfs.

Effective tight framing in this superb daily life scene from modern China. Apparently Marco Polo brought back the idea for noodles to Italy as spaghetti starts appearing in Italy around the same time. They substituted wheat for rice. Good smiles on the waitresses too that look authentic. Tfs.

The canal at left adds strong lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. Good sharpness, color and saturation. Nice reflections and I like the warm cold color contrast between the red roofs and the blue sky. Tfs.

Well framed and composed with no part pf the screen wasted, and plenty of breathing space around the church. Good sharpness and the partially diffused light works well here. The inverted C shape formed by the path stairs and church adds strong lead in lines. Tfs.

The half-timbered house at left contrasts well against the rest of the squares architecture. Good color and sharpness. I like the diffused light, the muted colors and the zebra crossing adding graphic elements and diagonal lead in lines. Tfs.

I like the layered effect with blue, yellow green, blue, yellow green and yet again blue in the sky. This striking warm cold color contrast is exceptional. Superb sharpness and well framed and composed with ideal density levels. Tfs.

It resembles a mini Bryce Canyon in the USA or Cappadocia in Turkey with the same heavily eroded geologic features. Good sharpness and the person adds scale. I like the sidelight on the left of the pinnacles providing definition. Excellent shadow detail. Tfs.

Looks like a place I will have to include in my next trip which will include Zagrb and Slovenia. A superb blue hour mixed with the last rays of a nice sunset, shot with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. Good repetition of the moored fishing boats. Tfs.

I made a beeline for the Oslo Opera House, so I missed this building. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The three different layers of people add depth and animate the scene. Nice repetition of the arched windows. Tfs.

The boy in the red tshirt with a yellow spongebob squarepants, contrasts well against the blue sky. He also adds scale. Good sharpness and excellent color and sharpness. The bg fountain at right in the same style compliments the globe. Tfs.

Lol at the title. Looks like a few hot days in a row have evaporated most of the water from the pond. Fantastic sharpness and I like the warm cold color contrast between the blue top of the image and the hotter colors of yellow and red in the middle. The diagonal palm trees contrast well against the vertical lines of the walls. Tfs.
ChrisJ (104429) 2015-08-31 13:20
The Greek flag atop the steep, rocky hill makes an instant focal point. Good sharpness and saturation with excellent density levels. The streaks of rust red dried grass contrast well against the blue sky. The castle to the left is almost camouflaged into the hill. Tfs.

The triangular wedge of the sunlit, green ridge at right contrasts well against the almost black and white tones of the foreboding mountains at left. Lake Louise is within Banff National Park, but it's much closer to the town of Lake Louise than Banff. Good sharpness and shadow detail. The dark pine trees add a good graphic element at right.
