I haven't yet been to Wien, but it's on my to do list. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. Effective tight framing and nice to see the tulips are4 not only in Turkey and Holland. I have seen similar displays at Taksim square but not sure if the sellers mind photographs without buying? Tfs!

Nice repetition of the palm trees with punchy light contrasts and good graphism & color saturation. A wonderful blue sky that contrasts nicely against the splashes of orange yellow. The people add scale and animate the scene. Tfs!

Good catch of the Edinburgh skyline and castle with the fg statue of Allan Ramsay making a superb focal point. Excellent sharpness and a pleasant diffused light. Excellent graphism and wonderful greenery in the park. Tfs!

Amazing repetition of all the boats in the harbor, with effective tight framing yet still with adequate breathing space. The red spires contrast well against the blue sky. Well composed using the rule of thirds with the skyline positioned on the 1/3 axis away from the centre. Tfs!

Fantastic colour saturation and contrasts between the orange red and blue with the green ivy at left completing the palette. Looks like the physical Graffiti album cover from Led Zeppelin. Excellent control over perspective. Tfs!

Nice warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue and yellow with good repetition of the boats and effective tight framing. The anchor chain emanating from the bottom right corner adds good lead in lines. Good saturation & sharpness. Tfs!

Punchy light contrasts with nice repetition of the fg patterns of the heart shaped leaves. Nice reflections off the clean clear water. A good exposure on the highlights. Wonderful density levels and the bridge makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

Hi Tiffany. On our indigenous TV station I have seen the current carvers at work and it is satisfying to know that the tradition is alive despite the history of dispossession and persecution of the First Nations.Their art style reminds me of the Ainus, the tribal people of Japan who also held the bear in reverence. Nice to see this sort of photo on TE. Regards. Klaudio.

Namaste Swapan. Your words "an appearance of chiseled, polished and fretted exquisiteness" say it all. A beautiful place in which to seek shade and relief from the heat and ponder about the transience of life and the Creator's many wonders and mysteries.At first I thought it was a photo in sepia but it really is the honeyed colour of the aged marble. Great exposure in difficult setting. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Wonderful repetition of the piano like facade of the bg buildings vertical windows, the round green trees in 2 layers, and the fg people. Good sharpness and realistic looking color. The steel lamppost nicely breaks the repetitive patterns. Tfs!

I love the crystal clear clarity and transparency of the lake. Good sharpness and a nice warm cold color contrast between the orange pink tinged sunset clouds and the blue water and skylight. A splendid symmetrical reflection of the lone jagged peak. Tfs!

The sweeping curve of the large fountain directs the eye nicely right around the lake. Good density levels that have provided punchy light contrasts and splendid saturation. Good reflections and a peaceful mood captured here superbly. Tfs!

A superb aerial shot with good sharpness and excellent contrasts in the patterns and hues of the fields below. They seem more lush at left than right. Pnchy light contrasts and superb colour and saturation. The diagonal road at top adds dynamism. Tfs!

The seated woman in the pink shirt adds a fine focal point. Nice repetition of the patterns and shapes of the rectangular bricks in the bg wall with superb textural details. The diagonal line of the green grass adds dynamism. Tfs!

A good decisive moment capturing the horses fighting. Excellent sharpness and the cloud of dust helps animate the scene. Nice repetition of the Joshua like trees. Good warm cold color contrasts between the dusty arid yellow red desert and the blue sky. Tfs!

The curving cobblestone road adds fantastic lead in lines. Nice warm cold colour contrasts between the blue grey and yellow colours. The people add scale and animate the scene. The arch through the bg building reminds me of the old 'rathaus' in Munich! Tfs!

I like the wide angled, panoramic format on the yacht harbor. Nice repetition of the boats and the high rise bg buildings add depth. Lots of boats! It would be like trying to park a car in a crowded supermarket carpark! Hope the mooring fees are not outrageous! Tfs!

Excellent textural details in the pitted wall with good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. The fg lamp makes a good focal point. A nice warm cold color contrast at the top between the blue sky and red tiles. Tfs!

Maybe I should post some snow pics from Erzurum? This looks cold. Really cold. The curving river of ice adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Excellent graphism, a good high pov (presumably on a bridge), and I like the minimalist color. Tfs!
