Bonjour, cher Francesco,
Very good sharpness with superb density levels that have given clean whites and blacks. The row of ducks at left add interest. Nice reflections and good warm cold colour contrasts, with the diagonal angles of the old barges adding dynamism. Merci!

I got as close as Hasankeyf to Mardin! It was too hot though so I headed to Tatvan. Good sharpness and a fine upward pov. The shadow detail is good and allows us to see all of the intricate stone work. The bird at the top adds interest. I might have tried to include the top corner and / or have the top left corner with the diagonal starting there. Tfs!

A little soft, but sharpness is adequate. I might have added more saturation. Regardless, the angled pov adds dynamism and the canal provides perspective. The people add scale, & a nice capture of this historic barge with good reflections. Tfs!

I like the shadow play of diamond shaped patterns on the footpath almost as much as the warm cold color contrast between the blue and yellow at the top! Good sharpness and excellent inclusion of the resting cyclists to add scale and animate the shot. They make good focal points. Tfs!

I especially like that there are no cars trucks or motorbikes zipping through the pedestrian arcade. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. The people add scale and life. Excellent use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. Nice warm cold colour contrasts. Tfs!

The sewer or drain water pipes add interest and repetition. Good sharpness and natural perspective provided by the receding shoreline. Excellent shadow detail and the 2 fishermen are nicely placed near the vanishing point. Tfs!

The colourful flowers certainly add a nice splash of colour. The saturation is muted but realistic. I like the warm cold colour contrast between the pale blue an yellow. The stairs add lead in lines and perspective. Merci!

The bg volcano shrouded in cloud looks like something straight out of a James Bond movie! Good sharpness and the blue sea and sky contrast well against the yellow green grass at right. The little fg harbour adds depth. Tfs!

Love the artwork on the colorful cows. Fantastic framing and composition with the artificial fg flower enhancing the effect and depth. Good sharpness as always. A nice warm cold color contrast in the bg between the blue sky and the yellow orange wall. Merci!

The ubiquitous oleander adds a welcome splash of pink color at left. Good reflections and adequate sharpness. I like the superb shadow detail and subtle reflections. Wise to use the branches top right to shield and mask the oe sky. The turquoise colour of the plunge pool below the falls is superb. Tfs!

I am glad you made the effort to get away from Fira / Thera, which is more crowded and touristed and not as photogenic imho. It does not disappoint either. I was lucky enough to visit it last year. Good sharpness and amazing repetition of the patterns and shapes. Turks asked me why there are so many churches in Santorini. They laughed when I answered that I would prey a lot too if I lived on top of a dormant volcano. Apparently it exploded violently around 3600 years ago and the hot springs on the new island are still very active. TFS!

Good graphism of the old clock tower against the bg blue sky with excellent sharpness, and the fg people add scale. Nice warm vs cold colour contrasts between the blue and yellow red hues. Perspective has been well managed. Tfs!
ChrisJ (94278) 2014-07-20 5:32
It does indeed look like the outline of a profiled face. Superb silhouettes and graphism with the added bonus of a superb bg beach scene. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and yellow red sand. Merci!

Good choice of a wide angled, panoramic format with superb sharpness and color saturation. I especially like the warm vs cold color contrast between the blue sea and sky and the rocky red cliffs and giant boulders. Merci!
ChrisJ (94278) 2014-07-20 3:40
Stunning warm vs cold color contrasts between the yellow red balloons and the blue sky. Good sharpness and the moon is a nice inclusion. Good breathing space and I like how they overlap. Excellent density levels and graphism. Tfs!

A mooooving landscape! Good sharpness and layering with the cows in the green fg pasture then the cablecar, distant village and snowcapped peaks right at the back. Excellent sharpness and color saturation. A nice exposure on the highlights. Tfs!
ChrisJ (94278) 2014-07-20 3:01
A superb high vantage point and effective tight framing to exclude the bulk of the oe sky. Good sharpness and colour saturation. The red brick buildings in the centre make a fine focal point. Nice to see so many trees scattered throughout the city. Tfs!
ChrisJ (94278) 2014-07-20 2:53
Nice repetition of the yachts and boats with good sharpness and the alignment with how they are moored adds perspective from left to right. The inclusion of the fg green witches hat and rock at right add depth. Strong light has been well managed. Tfs!
ChrisJ (94278) 2014-07-20 2:45
I might have tried shooting through the fg fence to exclude it altogether to put more emphasis on the interesting, partly submerged pylons, rotting away in the water. Amazing repetition. This must have been a huge pier complex at one time. Good sharpness and the old vs new contrast with the bg high-rise buildings adds interest. Tfs!
