Smart choice of a vertical format to emphasise the height of this impressively decorated building. Good sharpness and the people & dog add scale and animate the shot. Superb shadow detail and the side light is excellent. The sunlit facade at left contrasts nicely against the darker bg sky. Tfs!

This is a good long wideangled view of the fort & provides good information on the setting and its context in relation to the harbour and beach. Good high pov with excellent sharpness and good density levels and contrasted lighting. Excellent colour & saturation too. Tfs!

A peaceful looking estuarine scene with good sharpness and superb shadow detail. The reddish brown sandy bottom of the river contrasts well against the blue sky. The red buoy makes a fine focal point and the distant city skyline adds interest. Tfs!

This is still great as is but would have been perfect from a lower shooting angle to completely frame the dome of St Paul's cathedral in the bg. Perfect sharpness and good timing to include the boat passing under the bridge. Excellent shadow detail and the sidelit southern towers and waterfront contrast well against the shadowed bg. Tfs!

Nice symmetrical reflections and good sharpness with superb repetition of the yellowing poplar trees. The yellow contrasts well against the blue sky too. The fg leaves frame the scene and add a nice graphic element. Tfs!

This reminded me of shots I have seen of rocks on Kangaroo Island off the South Australian coast even though I have never been to either. http://www.yktravelphoto.com/places/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/img_4391-img_4409.jpg
Nice warm cold colour contrasts between the reddish yellow rocks and the blue sky. Good sharpness and shadow detail too. Tfs!

A wonderful blue sky to accompany the blue water! The person adds scale and a welcome human element. Good high pov with excellent sharpness. I have been lucky enough to have visited Baikalskoe in the north which is similar and just as spectacular. Tfs!

This humanoid figure looks similar in construction materials to a metallic Godzilla I spotted in Oslo! Good use olf a shallow dof with excellent sharpness on the musician sculpture and a nice contrast with the slightly oof man in the bg. Tfs!

Fantastic symmetrical reflections on a still evening with good sharpness and I like the wide angled, panoramic format. The silhouetted church spires add a nice graphic element and fantastic repetition of the lights. The illuminated cathedral at left adds interest. Tfs!

I hope you weren't too put off by the big crowds on the beach, and it seems you enjoyed La Spezia and Cinque Terre regardless. I like the contrast between the green terraced vineyards at right and the congested hill at left completely covered in buildings. Good sharpness and colour. Tfs!

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!
ChrisJ (95080) 2014-10-10 2:27
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!

I'm sure we all have desires to travel like this! The lovely contrasts of light and shadows, along with the mirror-like reflection, make this a very tranquil, almost romantic shot.
The leads work well , guiding us to a second barge.
Have a lovely day,

A perfectly, crisp photograph where details are so nicely accessible to the viewers. The light is lovely with good contrasts of light and shadow and leads that guide succinctly around the frame.
Barcelona is THE most wonderful city for photographers!
Have a lovely day,

I have seen pictures from Burano previously but this is a very original one! It is the most glorious patchwork of colours, combined with excellent leads and a focal point which contradicts all the other shapes in the photograph!
My warm regards,

So this is where you have got to!
What a beautiful, evening shot!
The interesting fountain creates a beautiful, gilded curve as an introduction to the square and the gilded sky unites the whole photograph. In between, the square has its own interests of buildings, people, lamps and, of course, the statue.
Have a lovely day,
