Smart choice of a vertical frame with superb use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point provided by the converging dual lines of the narrow street. The red flag contrasts well against the blue sky to give a nice warm vs cold color contrast. The car and people are well placed near the back vanishing point. Tfs!

Effective tight framing with clever use of the strong diagonal in the composition, nicely bisecting the image into two. Good warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue as well as the yellow fishing nets. I like the contrast in textures and shapes of the ropes, wooden side of the boat and the fishing net draped over the side. Impeccable sharpness and excellent color and saturation. Tfs!

The contrast between the empty fg and crowded mid section of this beach is striking. Good sharpness and the winking sign adds life and humor to the shot. Nice to see the bg forested in green and not covered in a concrete jungle of high rise which has happened to many other beaches around the world. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Excellent sharpness also. The fg sandcastle at left adds to the shot. Tfs!

Nice repetition of the sunflowers with a superb warm cold color contrast betweeen the yellow flowers and the blue grey sky. Good sharpness and saturation. Well composed using the rule of thirds with the horizon well positioned away from the centre. I like the slanted rays of sunlight emanating from the clouds top left. Tfs!

A superb high vantage point with good sharpness and the u shape of the bay nicely guides the eye around the image. Good color and saturation. I see an Australian gum tree or eucalypt top right! And some fg prickly pear native to central America. The repetition of the palms along the avenue adds interest. Tfs!

Nice use of the arches as framing devices with the dark arch at the back well posaitioned over the vanishing point. The man in robes adds scale and animates the scene as well as adding context. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Excellent side lighting and good shadow detail. Good textural detail. Tfs!

Good density levels that have given punchy light contrasts and excellent exposure on both highlights and shadows. Excellent colour, sharpness and saturation. I like the deep perspective & lead in lines added by the grey path in the fg, and the people add scale. The yellow green grass contrasts nicely against the blue sky. Tfs!

The silhouetted hiker 'makes' this shot and great that you used a sufficiently high shutter speed not to get motion blur, which sometimes happens in my shots :-(
Fantastic graphism and tonal range ahnd the alpine snowcapped peaks make a superb backdrop. Tfs!

A pleasant diffused light and the fg stone path adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. The 2 arches nicely frame the bg orange red wall. Good sharpness and the people animate the scene and provide scale. Tfs!

'Amin' sounds close to 'Amen' which roughly translates as 'so be it'. A fine capture of this baptism and further proof that water is considered a purifying element in many cultures. Nice reflections and what adds interest here is the ruffled water surface in the fg contrasting against the horizontal layered bands in the more distant water in the bg. Tfs!

Effective framing on this interesting old Tunisian cemetery with good sharpness and a fine warm cold colour contrast between the blue sky and red brick fort top right. Excellent colour, saturation and framing. Nice repetition of the tombstones. Tfs!

I see several themes in one here. Firstly 2 entwined flames which is the original intent, secondly 2 Salvadore Dali like melted forks twisted around each other and finally a pair of hands perhaps in prayer? A nice abstract shot with many interpretations. Good sharpness as always. Tfs!

Fantastic symmetrical reflections in the moat with good sharpness and a nice warm vs cold colour contrast between the yellow red facade of the fort and the deep blue hour sky. The illuminated windows add to the shot. Nice repetition of the arches. Merci pour ce partage.

A nice minimalist shot of the simple palette of wheat tree and sky. I might have cropped a little from the left so the tree is not dead centre, but that is only a minor nitpick. Good density levels and saturation. A nice warm cold color contrast also between yellow and blue. Tfs!

Nice tonal range and excellent wide angled view of the boats with good repetition of their shapes and forms. The people animate the scene and provide scale. Well composed with the horizon line well away from the centre. Tfs!

A lovely summery shot of the ripening fruit and apple trees. The jagged outline of the distant blue, hazy mountains makes a superb horizon line. Good sharpness and excellent inclusion of the 2 rolled hay bales for context of the season. Tfs!

A superb aerial view of Saint-Hyacinthe with good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. The river at right makes a fine reference point. Nice to see the rolling green fields and forest interspersed with the town. Tfs!

I like the sunlit yellow cloud contrasting against the inky blue black parts of the clouds. The tiny aircraft turning is a superb focal point. Good sharpness and a fine profiled view of the London skyline. Tfs!

I like the arrow shaped structure at left, which balances the composition with its larger sibling or parent at right. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red orange roofs and the blue sky with impeccable sharpness. Tfs!

I like the wide angled, panoramic format. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. Nice repetition of the boats with a superb warm vs cold colour contrast between the reddish brown architecture and the blue sky and water. Tfs!
