A delightful photograph which by the composition and arrangement of the floor tiles, just welcomes the viewers in.
The inclusion of the figure in the red coat is a great addition for human interest as well as the colour.
What a lovely spot. It's like somewhere from a fairy story.
My warm regards,

This doesn't look like the usual subject for a photograph but what you have given us is a wonderful sense of textural details, repeating archways for a sense of perspective and great details of the patterns and the colours of the bricks. There is a little oe at the terminal doorway but it does not compromise the effects that you have achieved.
My warm regards,

A great vantage point creates fine lead lines, taking advantage of the canal for reflections and extra interest.
A fine sense of perspective is created with the old buildings as they lead to the new builds.
I might have been tempted to crop much of the sky as it added little to the overall shot, then the whole would have felt a little closer.
Have a great day,

Perhaps a little oversharpened, and maybe I would have boosted saturation a bit but I still like this a lot. A nice downward pov devoid of annoying tourist crowds, with lots of mood. The snowcapped mountains in the bg make a good backdrop. I might try a quick workshop. Tfs!

I like the upward pov and repetition of the stairs and the spherical, manicured topiary trees. Good sharpness and a wonderful blue sky backdrop. Excellent density levels and punchy light contrasts. Have a great weekend!

Fantastic graphism and a superb decisive moment shot. Another second or 2 and the shot was gone. I like the layering into g=horizontal thirds. The water droplets add authenticity. Good sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

Might get to see thius in person! The Diet of Worms has always amused and intrigued me during high school history lessons. Good sharpness and density levels. The pinkish hued architecture contrasts well against the blue sky. Have a safe weekend!

The yellow green leaves contrast well against the navy blue evening sky. Good sharpness and the profiled statue looks a little like Popeye! Nice repetition of the silver leaves sculpture. Good graphism. Bon weekend!

Nice reflections in the rectangular ornamental pool with good warm cold colour contrasts between the mottled blue grey sky and the salmon pink brick walls of the imposing old building. The people add scale. The fg statues add depth and an elegant touch. Tfs!

Almost missed this one. The critiques are coming in faster than I can add mine, so it kept slipping down the page of my list. But I found it again and it is a nice semi abstract shot of the yacht and its reflections. Good density levels and graphism. The blue and white colours go well together. Tfs!

A striking warm vs cold colour contrast between the blue sky and pink wall panels. Good sharpness & framing with excellent saturation and color. I like the contrast between the horizontal lines in the fg building and the vertical stripes in the bg building. Tfs!

The thumbnail does not do this justice. Upon opening the big picture the wonderful texture of the cracked saltpan or mud becomes readily apparent. Marvellous warm cold colour contrasts between the red sand and blue sky with good sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

I like the reflections in the wet sand and the reflected blue skylight contrasts superbly against the yellow red sand. The sunbather and the bg yacht make a good focal points. Excellent sharpness and shadow detail. The eroded headland profile resembles a lioness watching the shore. Tfs!

Another good view of the speeding rally car and its trail oif dust and exhaust fumes, this time from a rear view angle. Good sharpness, framing and colour saturation. The bg crowd add scale and context. The V shaped road adds to the composition by leading the eye around the image. Merci et bon weekend!
