I will have to add this place to my bucket list next time I am in the Naples area. The yellow cupola on the horizon contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and well composed. Nice fg reflections in the sea and the men on the small fishing boats animate the scene. The bg castle adds interest. The outdoor dining area with people at left balances the composition. Tfs!

Well composed shot here with good sharpness, colour and saturation. The red flowers contrasts well against the blue grey colours. Nice reflections in the wet pavement. The bg building reminds me a little of the 7 sisters building in Warsaw. Nice repetition of the gold statues. The path adds strong lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Tfs!

A superb sunset with good sharpness and excellent composition utilising the rule of thirds, with good sharpness and superb saturation. I like the z shaped cloud illuminated above the setting sun. The dark tongue of rocky shoreline at right adds a nice touch of graphism. Excellent warm cold color contrasts between the blue grey and orange hues. Tfs!

Smart choice of a vertical frame with superb use of diminishing linear perspective and vanishing point provided by the converging dual lines of the narrow street. The red flag contrasts well against the blue sky to give a nice warm vs cold color contrast. The car and people are well placed near the back vanishing point. Tfs!

Effective tight framing with clever use of the strong diagonal in the composition, nicely bisecting the image into two. Good warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue as well as the yellow fishing nets. I like the contrast in textures and shapes of the ropes, wooden side of the boat and the fishing net draped over the side. Impeccable sharpness and excellent color and saturation. Tfs!

The contrast between the empty fg and crowded mid section of this beach is striking. Good sharpness and the winking sign adds life and humor to the shot. Nice to see the bg forested in green and not covered in a concrete jungle of high rise which has happened to many other beaches around the world. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Excellent sharpness also. The fg sandcastle at left adds to the shot. Tfs!

Nice repetition of the sunflowers with a superb warm cold color contrast betweeen the yellow flowers and the blue grey sky. Good sharpness and saturation. Well composed using the rule of thirds with the horizon well positioned away from the centre. I like the slanted rays of sunlight emanating from the clouds top left. Tfs!

A superb high vantage point with good sharpness and the u shape of the bay nicely guides the eye around the image. Good color and saturation. I see an Australian gum tree or eucalypt top right! And some fg prickly pear native to central America. The repetition of the palms along the avenue adds interest. Tfs!

Nice use of the arches as framing devices with the dark arch at the back well posaitioned over the vanishing point. The man in robes adds scale and animates the scene as well as adding context. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Excellent side lighting and good shadow detail. Good textural detail. Tfs!

Hi Olivier. This is the most stunning costume so far. The top part reminds me of the Balkan oriental inspired embroidery but of course the swirling circular patterns would have Celtic origins. I do like the traditional story of the origin of the headdress as it speaks of defiance of the common person. Proud wearer here.Beautiful colours. Regards. Klaudio. Keep them coming.

Good density levels that have given punchy light contrasts and excellent exposure on both highlights and shadows. Excellent colour, sharpness and saturation. I like the deep perspective & lead in lines added by the grey path in the fg, and the people add scale. The yellow green grass contrasts nicely against the blue sky. Tfs!

A pity we missed a chance to overlap on Sunday. We've been enjoying Bergen.
My son (also on TE) goes to Cape Town for work sometimes but he doesn't get much chance to take photos so good to see this photo.
This is a great clear panorama with excellent details. Well done.

Merhaba Mesut. The young woman has a strong presence due to her finely formed features and her captivating glance. The red lipstick echo the red parts of the costume. Pity that the plaits are not her own, but then who wears such long hair these days?Initially I thought she was Turkish due to the prominent cheekbones, but she is Georgian as you say. God knows what she is thinking! Selam. Klaudio.
