It's all about timing when photographing planes and you ace this one, I like it and I can almost hear the deafening sound of those engines. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
Red Flag is on again so I'm going to Nellis Air Force Base this afternoon and shoot more airplanes pictures. It looks like there are B-52s, B-1s, Mirage, AWACS, Intruders and others.

What a wonderfully colourful scene Paul. Superb light and I am impressed that this is in winter, everything looks so sunny and bright! You had a great vantage point as here we can enjoy the river and the city which lies beyond. Excellent contrasts too give very good definition to the architecture.

Crystal clear winter light has brought out the fine detailing in the architecture and statues very nicely here Wolfgang. The square crop focuses the attention on the important aspects of the scene and the few sparse branches in the upper RHC balance the composition. Wonderfully harmonious colours too.

Hello Jean - A shot very much to my liking. I like your classic division of the frame with the FG layer balancing out the sky very well. The subject is fabulous; desolate and full of texture and wonderfully subtle colours. A magnificent scene!

Hello Abmdsudi - A wonderful portrait in your own distinctive style. As always you use the frame beautifully with the negative space balancing the composition very well. Trade mark DOF and vibrant colours of the traditional dress. The light on the woman's skin gives good modeling. Congratulations on a lovely piece of work.

I like your version of sandyatching better. We have them here near Las Vegas but wind blows the desert sand in the air is very thick. Good pov and I like their reflections on the wet sand. Sharp details and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Simple but effective composition. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
Regarding my picture of the B-2 bomber, please understand this. . .I am posting art work not an endorsement of war machines from any government. If you notice I like taking pictures of flying objects like balloons, paraglider, hanglider, drones, birds and others. And, I am very lucky that I live in a free country that allowed me to take pictures of the most modern and sophisticated warplanes then post them without being afraid of going to prison, lots of TE members envy my position. And I believe TE is for photography not for politics.

Bonjour Serge - A natural scene that I was fortunate enough to find today. Don't know how I missed it before as it is very much to my taste. I love the way the natural landscape appears free and uncontrived. A beautiful jumble of colour and texture. Lots for me to enjoy here.

The colour detail in the beams of light are quite wonderful Chris, I don't think I have ever seen a shot like this before and I am most impressed with your management. How you got the coloured beams so well defined is beyond me! Well done. Additionally, I love the way the gilded candelabra is lit and isolated from the rest of the scene. A pleasure to see.

A wonderful warm vs cold color contrast between the reddish hued mountain top in full sunlight against the grey blue sky. I like the flattened perspective from the zoom. Good sharpness and saturation. The dual diagonal lines add dynamism. I like the layering into 3 here too. Tfs.

Amazing street art of the doberman and the bird character from 'Peanuts'. The windows at right add scale to the real size of this large mural. Good sharpness color and saturation. Well framed and composed and a pleasant diffused light. Perspective has been well managed. Tfs.

Good sharpness with fantastic warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the yellow red facades of the orthodox church. The snow enhances the graphic elements. Perspective has been well managed with no sign of lens barrel distortion. Plenty of breathing space right around in this well composed shot. Tfs.
