The angled concrete quay at left adds dynamism and lead in lines as well as diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. Well composed with nice fg reflections in the water. Good sharpness and the yellow nets of the solitary fishing boat contrast well against the blue sky and water. Have a nice week!

I know exactly where this is. A church on the pier at left immediately behind, a concrete deck with some columns then steps to the beach seen at right, and a fish restaurant using a red boat as a centrepiece. I must post it onr day. Nice repetition of the boats seen here with good reflections in the water. Good exposure on the white highlights. Tfs!

Hello Stephen ,
I like the side light from the left throwing comparatively long shadows across both the footpath and the wall at far right. Good sharpness and diminishing linear perspective. Nice repetition of the iron gate window bars, that also serve a functional purpose to minimise vandalism and keep intruders out. Tfs!

Hi, Brian, good morning,
It looks similar to Brighton only less crowded and maybe in better shape and care. Fantastic warm cold colour contrasts between the red and blue. I walked about half way along the Brighton pier before heading back to the bus stop to get my 9:30 pm bus from Victoria Station to Amsterdam. Would have liked more time in Brighton. But better to see a little than none at all! Tfs!

The dry yellow brown grass and reeds either side contrast well against the reflected blue skylight in the water. Good sharpness and excellent density levels and saturation. The flowering almond tree at right adds a nice graphic element with the white flowers as well as framing the scene nicely. Tfs!

Missed this one. Good graphic elements enhanced by the punchy light contrasts and minimalist colors. Excellent sharpness and well framed and composed. The back light has been very well managed. I like the streaks and splotches of yellow green amongst the white flowering blossoms. Tfs!

Good warm versus cold colour contrasts between the blue and red with a nice angled pov on the classic cars. Excellent sharpness and the flash has been well used. The man at the back adds scale. Well composed with some breathing space at the back. Bon semaine!

The blue sky and whited out landscape from the snow go well together and the stone statue at left is eyecatching and makes a fantastic focal point. Good sharpness and well exposed highlights in the snow. The majestic bg peaks also capped in snow make a superb backdrop. Tfs!

Another superb daily life scene and good to have caught the man smiling. Vibrant, saturated colour from the marigolds and other flowers on sale. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red, yellow orange and blue. Have a nice week!

I like the flattened perspective from the zoom lens. Nice repetition of the fg gondolas, with good sharpness, color and saturation, The Rialto Bridge makes a fine centerpiece. Good warm cold colour contrasts between the blue and red. Merci pour ce partage!
ChrisJ (93442) 2014-04-12 20:36
A fantastic, upward pov with good sharpness and symmetry. I like the repetition of the vaulted arches in the ceiling. The muted colours work well here. The Crucifixion scene makes a fine focal point. Excellent diminishing linear perspective. Have a nice week!

I like the wide angled, panoramic format. Good sharpness, excellent density levels and superb fg reflections in the river. Nicely saturated & the yellow and red facades of the buildings contrast splendidly against the blue sky. Have a great week!
ChrisJ (93442) 2014-04-12 17:53
The red rocky outcrop or mesa butte contrasts well against the grey blue sky. Good sharpness, excellent framing using the rule of thirds, and a pleasant diffused light. I might have cropped a little from the sky and gone with a more panoramic format, and have a great week!
ChrisJ (93442) 2014-04-12 17:50
The thumbnail doesn't really do this justice. It was a pleasant surprise upon opening to see all the subtle shadow detail and brickwork, and the perspective leading to the open enclosure nicely framed by the arch and providing a vista of a wonderful seascape. Good sharpness & color saturation. Tfs!
ChrisJ (93442) 2014-04-12 17:45
Good use of a shallow dof with impeccable sharpness on the ducks. Wonderful repetition of natural patterns and colors formed by the carpet of water lily pads and flowers blanketing the lake. Good saturation and effective tight framing. Have a nice weekend!
ChrisJ (93442) 2014-04-12 17:35
Absolutely lovely with good sharpness and density levels that have given strong color and punchy light contrasts. I like the intense warm cold color contrast between the fg yellow flowers and the blue sky. The wide angled panoramic crop suits this image. Bon Lundi!

Love the strong sidelighting from the late afternoon or early morning light which is revealing all the tones and textures in the well trodden sand, with good warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue on the boat. Good sharpness & framing. Have a nice weekend!
ChrisJ (93442) 2014-04-12 15:44
Lol! Apparently they had some of these at Sochi in the Ukraine for the winter Olympics which raised some eyebrows. Talk about being cheap with the construction materials. On the plus side they at least look clean, unlike some of the public toilets in rural China. Tfs!
ChrisJ (93442) 2014-04-12 15:14
A good upward pov and I particularly like the alternating colours of red and blue, with the latter reinforced by the reflected blue skylight in the window glass. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Have a nice Sunday!

The black sand beach lets us know this area is or was volcanic in the recent past. A fantastic downward pov with impeccable sharpness and good framing. The fg grasses add depth and frame the beach. Excellent colour and saturation. The horizon is well placed off centre. Tfs!
