Les personnage avec leur vélo en petit donne la taille de ce mémorial superbe compo et vue quelle image quel belle statue dorée avec le contraste avec le blanc et cette barrière merveilleux.
Bravo et amitié

Even from the thumbnail I thought I could make out the outline of an abstract horse. Well composed with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The abstract sculpture is worth a second look too for other hiding shapes! I like the high contrast and shadows reinforcing the graphic element. Tfs!

Perhaps a slight rotastion to the left but apart from that perfection! Impeccable sharpness, colour, saturation and superb warm cold colour contrasts betweent he yellow ochre walls of the castle and the marvellous blue hour sky. The crescent moon is a nice addition. Tfs!

I like the wide angled, panoramic format. Good sharpness, colour, saturation and density levels. The indented patterns in the fg wall nicely frame the bg. The basilica on the horizon makes a fine focal point. The red roof at left contrasts well against the blue sky. Tfs!

Like Australia, Britain largely has no major or frequent earthquakes of note, so there was a time 50 million years ago or more, when this wasnt always the case, as evidenced in the geological tell tale signs of the folded rocks. Wonderful warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sea and sky and the yellow red hued rocks in the steep cliff. Tfs!

Superb warm versus cold colour contrasts between the straw yellow fg and the blue sky, with good sharpness and density levels. Nice skylight reflections in the fg stream with the copse of trees in the mid distance at left adding depth to the composition. Good aerial perspective of changing tones in the bg foothills of the Himalayas. Tfs!

I had to laugh at your lack of tripod ... now, you are photographing like most of us do! The steps have worked perfectly well! In fact, the steps have worked well in providing the most effective, central lead, from the f/g to the shape of the running track.
This is a wonderfully, visual pattern of lines, mostly concentric, some angular. The limited colour palette lays more emphasis on the pattern.
It is so exciting, so rewarding, to go back to the beginnings of such a massive sporting event!
Have a great Sunday,

It is a charming picture with the addition of strong colours and surrounding textures.
I would love to close my eyes to the purse and pretend that it is a gesture of love. However, my husband and I have, on many occasions, been approached by people selling roses. Sometimes they suggest it would be romantic to buy one, at other times they give you a paper explaining that they are deaf and dumb, with details of the cost of the flowers! Oh dear, I'm erring less on the side of romance!
Still, all credit to the photographer.
Have a great Sunday,
