A good upward pov with a marvellous warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and red roof. Superb sharpness and judicious use of the extreme wide angled lens. Smart central placement of the verticals. Tfs!

Smart choice of a vertical format with excellent sharpness and a good angled pov on the clocktower showing differing facades with some in light and others in shadow. Superb sharpness and natural looking color saturation. Tfs!

Who was the TE member who used to post lots of shots of boats in Malta? Did you meet them? Anyway amazing repetition of the boats here in the harbor with good sharpness and a beaut downward pov. The bg white condominiums and apartment blocks must be to reflect the heat in summer. Tfs!

Looks almost tropical with such lush greenery. Good sharpness and the circular outdoor dining area surrounded by attractive gardens looks like an ideal spot to chat with friends and sip tea or wine. They just have to remember that rock in the middle of the path or move it! Tfs!

This impressive archaeological site was fenced off from the public when I was there in 2013, so I had to use a telephoto lens. I hope one day the British Museum will return the sixth statue stolen by Lord Elgin. Perhaps even the Elgin Marbles as well. The new Acropolis museum in Athens would be a better place to exhibit them. These days it's only a matter of hours between London and Athens, rather than weeks.

The dual rails either side add strong lead in lines and converging linear perspective towards the imposing white mosque. Good sharpness and the lens barrel distortion has been well managed placing the vertical lines centrally. Tfs!

A good downward pov with excellent sharpness and nice repetition o the outdoor al-fresco dining tables and chairs. Their reddish brown color contrasts well against the grey blue pavement to give a wonderful warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

The square fornat works well inb this superb sunset shot. I like the repetition of the sunrays emanating from behind the clouds. Good sharpness and a nice warm cold color contrast between the orange and blue. The solitary column at right provides an excellent and interesting focal point. Tfs!

Nice use of the fg oval shaped gap to frame the bg building. Good sharpness and the people provide scale and animate the scene. Excellent sharpness and well framed and composed. Good graphic elements of contrasting dark and light tones. Tfs!

The dirt road with its wheel tracks adds superb lead in lines and its diagonal axis adds dynamism. Good sharpness and a wonderful warm cold color contrast between the yellow orange vineyards and the blue sky. Excellent sharpness and a nice elevated vantage point. Tfs!

The tight framing works well here. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The warm honey color of the stone tower at left contrasts well with the blue sky to give a nice warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

You found a better angle than me. This looks to be taken near or in Chinatown. Here I like both the red awning adding a warm cold color contrast against the blue sky, and the old style architecture with the futuristic slender pyramid shape of the Trans America Building in the bg. Tfs!

I might have adjusted the color balance which seems a little cyan green on my monitor. Easy to do by adding red and magenta. That said a splendid upward pov with perfect sharpness and well framed and composed. Have a nice weekend!
