A place for quiet reflection and it resembles some of the Chinese gardens. Fantastic symmetrical reflections and good color and saturation. The arched bridge makes a fine focal point. Good repetition of the high rise buildings on the horizon line. Tfs.

You've captured well the atmosphere of Spring with the green meadows and blooming flowers. Good color, sharpness and saturation. The gap between the flowering trees adds a natural perspective and lead in lines. The red roof contrasts well against the blue sky along with the yellow dandelion flowers. Tfs.

I have yet to visit Switzerland and it looks lovely in Springtime with the tulips along the lake shoreline. Good color, sharpness and saturation. The steamer is well positioned in the frame with plenty of forward space to move into. Tfs.

You were so lucky with the sunny weather and blue skies. Good sharpness and nice textural and tonal details in the distinctive wooden architecture. The flagstone streets add lead in lines and perspective. Tfs.

Looks like a lawn or garage sale. My mother and aunt are big fans of this kind of sale. Often the items are being given away although here it looks more like antique items costing substantially more than everyday household items. Good sharpness and colour. Tfs.

The angled pov on the painting adds dynamism. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. Plenty of breathing space right around and well composed. The diffused light works well here. Tfs.

Good sharpness, nice warn cold color contrasts between the blue sky and yellow red pavement and the stacked pyramids of wine casks add interesting repetitive elements. The shadow across the fg looks a little like a dragon! Tfs.

Wonderful symmetrical reflections in the limpid water of the fountains with good sharpness, color and saturation. The warm yellow red facade of the bg building contrasts superbly against the blue grey sky. Tfs.

Nice repetition of the redf white and blue US flags at left which add a patriotic touch. Good sharpness and the pathway adds good linear perspective and lead in lines towards the back. I like the shadow play across the road with the sidelighting. Tfs.

The dark brown wooden cross against the white walled church sets up a superb graphic element. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The blue sky makes a nice backdrop. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs.

I missed this street art but found the trolls in Bergen atop the hill in the forest beside the gondola terminus. Good color, sharpness and saturation. The hilltop houses at left add interest. Well framed and composed. Tfs.

Good fg sharpness on the man with nice use of a shallowm dof throwing the bg dolls oof. Good colour and saturation. If I spotted a musical scene like this I would also take a short movie. The red, orange and cyan colours contrast strongly. Tfs.

Wonderful reflections in the calm water with the weathered old ketch making an immediate focal point. Good sharpness and saturation. I like the warm cold colour contrast between the blue sky ./ water and the yellow flowering plants. The effect is amplified through the reflection. Tfs.

The blue sky and cyan table and chairs set up a very good warm cold color contrast against the red roof and pink flowers. Good sharpness and the eye is funneled upwards by the stairs at left to the dark open doorway. Tfs.
ChrisJ (101782) 2015-05-18 3:21
Punchy light contrasts with good sharpness and nice graphic elements such a the dark branches at left overlapping the lighter toned stone foundation. Good color and saturation too. Smart choice of a vertical frame. The mother and child statue makes an instant focal point. Tfs.

I wish I had seen this when I was in Barcelona. Striking warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and red brick hospital buildings. Good sharpness and a superb elevated vantage point. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs.

Missed this one. The spalsh of blood red at the altar is symbolic and the warm colors contrast well against the blue grye wall at left. Excellent sharpness and a well exposed shot despite the low interior lighting. Tfs.

The downstream dam on the Tigris is one of the main reasons I went to Hasankeyf. There will be some bitter sweet memories once it is partly submerged. Sweet for more reliable power and water, but bitter for the loss of antiquities and heritage. Tfs.
