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!

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!

The red tile roof contrasts well against the blue sky. The curving fg road at left adds nice lead in lines & diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point. Good sharpness and well composed with nice saturation. Bon weekend!

A good rule of thumb for most wide angled shots with a little or even a lot of lens barrel distortion is to place the verticals centrally and watch the horizon. Don't try to level a vertical, against either the far left or far right. thus: / | \ or \ | /
I like how you've framed the courtyard using the arch. Tfs!

I am confused by the dual reference to soccer as football which in Australia is Rubgy/Aussie Rules and Gridiron in the US. Good sharpness and the red team contrasts well against the players in blue. I may have cropped some of the fg. Have a nice weekend!

I remember this place and have uploaded a shot or two to TE. A superb daily life (or should that be death?) shot with a good angled pov to add dynamism. Excellent sharpness, colour and saturation. The river now looks more polluted than I remember it in 2002. Tfs!

Good evening Miguel
It's actually nice to see a near deserted beach not jam packed with club Med vacationers. A superb high pov with good sharpness and natural looking colour. The tree at right frames the scene, adds depth as well as graphic elements. Tfs!

Lol at the apt title. 3 days of rain here and 3 more are forecast. Good shot of the interior of this clean and efficient public transport and not too crowded although it can be like sardines at peak hour. The shiny diagonal reflection along the corridor adds dynamism & perspective. Tfs!

A good angled pov on the house that would be if it were front on and one dimensional. The red wooden superstructure of the double story house contrasts well against the blue grey asphalt and slate roof. Excellent sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. Tfs!
ChrisJ (93372) 2014-04-11 14:29
Perspective has been well managed with the verticals placed centrally. Good sharpness and a soft diffused light. Excellent pastel colours and effective tight framing. I like the repetition of the 3 crosses on the window shutters. Have a nice weekend!

This one opped up in your gallery and I couldn't resist critiquing it. Effective tight framing with good density levels and nice bright light to give beautiful light contrasts and illuminate the fresh fruit. Good sharpness and superb repetition of patterns shapes and colours. Have a great weekend!

Athens never looked so good! Fantastic warm cold color contrasts between the blue and gold in this superb blue hour nocturnal hybrid shot with a marvelous high pov overlooking the city. I was lucky enough to visit the Acropolis seen in the bg last July. Tfs!

The grain adds to the mood and I like the dual areas of light interspersed by shadows. Good sharpness and the subtle warm cold colour contrast between the blue and pale yellow stone works well here. Smart choice of a vertical frame and I also like the fg window framing the 2 at the back. Tfs!
ChrisJ (93372) 2014-04-11 13:43
Wonderful warm versus cold color contrasts between the blue morning glory flowers and the yellow cream wall of the building with good sharpness and excellent saturation and tight framing. The lamp top left adds a lot to the shot. Have a nice weekend!

Good to have some breathing space at far right for the train to 'move' into. I like the wide angled, panoramic format. Excellent sharpness and nice warm vs cold colour contrasts between the blue and red. The jagged snow capped mountains make a superb backdrop. Have a nice weekend!
ChrisJ (93372) 2014-04-11 13:05
I like how the steps in the bottom right corner lead up then dip and turn left, then lead down again in a second set of steps to the vineyards. Good sharpness and the splash of yellow vegetation is eyecatching. Nice repetition of the trellised vineyards and their patterns in both the upper and lower terraces. Tfs!
ChrisJ (93372) 2014-04-11 9:17
Well composed using the rule of thirds with excellent sharpness, density and saturation. The 2 yellow rafts full of school children on an excursion adds interest and a focal point. Superb high pov and I like the dark tree branches framing the scene and the bg bridge. Tfs!
ChrisJ (93372) 2014-04-11 9:11
Amazing repetition of the windows with fantastic warm cold color contrasts between the red brick and blue skylight reflected off the glass. Excellent sharpness and effective tight framing with no wasted space. Have a nice weekend!
ChrisJ (93372) 2014-04-11 9:08
The hazy blue mountains make a nice backdrop as well as contrasting against the slightly reddish yellow fg. I like the flattened perspective from the zoom. Good sharpness and the wind-sailors make a fine focal point. Good how the black one is framed by the 2 green and white ones. Tfs!
