Interesting to see a more detailed shot of the ruined fort complex with good sharpness and framing. The repetitive patterns of the windows add to the composition and the weather worn textures of the entrance contrast well against the sharper more angular parts. The dark cave entrance adds interest. Tfs!

Well composed with the boat ramp at left leading in from the bottom corner adding depth lead in lines and perspective. Nice reflections and lovely blue tones throughout in the water & sky. Good repetition of the boats. Excellent density levels and sharpness. Tfs!

I was near there recently but didn't have the wonderful weather with clear blue skies like this. Only grey skies and drizzling rain, so I skipped the Lofoten Islands. The red sides of the barnhouse contrast well against the cyan and blue tints in the water. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

Nice framing of the central building in the bg between the 2 buildings either side. Effective tight framing with good sharpness and realistic colour. Superb shadow detail and good sharpness. I like the intricate, detailed stonework and repetitive patterns and shapes. Tfs!

The Mediterranean is fantastic, whether it is in Turkey, Greece, Italy, Cote D'Azure or as depicted here in Spain. The path adds nice lead in lines and perspective. Good sharpness & nice warm vs cold color contrasts between the reddish orange sand and the blue sea and sky. Tfs!

A stark contrast between capitalist at right and communist at left with good sharpness and fantastic warm vs cold colour contrasts between the red guitar and the blue sky. Excellent shadow detail and density levels. Perspective has been well managed. Tfs!

Nice overlapping and repetition of the 2 fg stupa structures. The ornate colorful carvings add interest to them. The pyramid stacked buildings on the bg hill are unusual. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Good contrasted lighting despite the cloudy day. Tfs!

The graceful, modernistic arch of the newish looking bridge in Venice easily compliments the more ornate Rialto more commonly uploaded, and the high pov and sharpness are superb. The people add scale and context. Nice repetition of the bg poles and boats. Tfs!

It's hard enough just to spot elk or moose these days. A pity these animals are extinct. The open mouth sans sharp teeth tells us these were vegetarian deer. Good sharpness and well managed interior lighting. Punchy light contrasts and a pleasant diffused light. Tfs!

Always nice to see garfitti artists with real talent as depicted here. I like the yellow vs blue colour contrast and the red pizza sigb=n is eyecatching. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The cathedral at right is a bonus. The small patch of bare red brick at the bottom contrasts well against the blue. Tfs!

The do-nut shaped building in the bg with the hole adds interest here. Good repetition of the boats and a nice sheen and light on the fg water. Well composed with adequate breathing space for the masts. Plenty of space both left and right too which enhances the composition. The pastel colors work well here. Tfs!

Good capture of the ruined fort with excellent textural details and good sharpness. The vegetation ion the fg contrasts markedly with the stones and rocks. Good fg lighting on the squills against the shadowed bg to add a graphic element. Tfs!

A superb daily life shot of the bakery and nice to not see a machine in sight for a change. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. I like the low shooting angle looking upwards. Nice repetition of the baked bread stacked neatly. Tfs!

Nice repetition of the colourful umbrellas lined up in a row at the back. Good sharpness and a superb high pov. Excellent repetition of patterns and shapes. The people at the bottom add scale. Fantastic light contrasts between the right and left sides. Tfs!

Fantastic symmetrical reflections with good sharpness and a nice warm vs cold color contrast betweent he blue water and sky against the red rocky cliffs. Good lighting contrasts and shadow detail. The rocks in the water at left add a god graphic element and repetition. Tfs!

The arched structure nicely frames the whole image and the cityscape reflections in the glass bg are superb. Good sharpness and the rainbow hued colours on the inside of the arch add interest. Nice repetition of the square windows reflecting blue skylight. Tfs!

Unusual to see this vestige of the old British colonial presence in Ceylon now known as Sri Lanka. Looks like a mini St Pauls cathedral in London. Good exposure on the bright highlights with superb sharpness. The people add scale. Tfs!

I wasn't consciously looking for this locale but found it anyway. It stood out immediately and of course I took a shot of it. The stairs at left nicely lead the eye downwards towards the sea far below. The pink bell tower contrasts well against the cobalt blue water. Tfs!

A lovely high pov with the sweeping c shaped curve of the bay nuicely leading the eye right around the image and enhancing the composition no end! Nice repetition of the boats in the harbour and the whitewashed houses ling the hillside. The reflected light off the water looks great. Tfs!
