A well composed shot of the fishing boat with adequate breathing space right around and good sharpness, color and saturation. Nice fg reflections in the water and I like the warm cold color contrast between the blue sky and water and the yellow and red striped boat and bg red roof. Tfs!

Punchy light contrasts on account of the good density levels which have also given excellent saturation. Well composed with the curved diagonal promenade adding both dynamism and good lead in lines and perspective. Nice reflections and good repetition of the boats. Tfs!

This aircraft appears to have a very long fwd section in front of the wings. A fine upward pov with good sharpness and smart choice of a fast shutter speed to freeze movement. The angled position adds dynamism. The clear blue sky makes a superb backdrop. Tfs!

An interesting accompanying note and I like the lion claw seat. The blue cyan sculpture contrasts well against the bg yellow ochre cathedral. Excellent sharpness and a fine upward pov. Good sidelighting from the left which gives relief and illustrates textural nuances. Tfs!

Good to see the original again after seeing the idea copied in architecture all over Europe. A nice blue sky that sets off the white marble nicely. Reasonable sharpness considering a zoom lens is mandatory here. It was roped off from public access last year. Tfs!

I was going to say that this castle looks very European, and on reading the note it becomes apparent why. Good sharpness and a nice upward pov with excellent diffused lighting and natural looking colour. And like Europe there is always some renovation or repair work going on! Tfs!

Effective tight framing and good use of a shallow dof. The fg apple tree nicely frames the bg shed. Good sharpness and excellent warm vs cold color contrasts, with realistic colour and saturation. A nice blue sky that contrasts well against the rusty red roof. Tfs!

I am having the same problem in Budapest. Dont know whether to start shooting or come back another time when the skies are blue. A superb angled pov on this Liverpudlian landmark with good sharpness and excellent upward pov on the neoclassical building. The green moss on the stairs suggests that it rains a lot here or is damp & humid. Tfs!

Effective tight framing with no part of the image wasted. Fantastic warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and the red bricks. A superb angled, 3d pov with good sharpness and density levels that have given perfect light contrasts and colour saturation. Tfs!

This reminds me of an old communal laundry I saw in Safronbolu in Turkey. The angled pov works well here on the rectangular shape. Excellent shadow detail and sharpness with good diffused light overall. The warm reddish roof contrasts well against the blue grey hues. Tfs!

I particularly like the muted colours and the subtle warm vs cold colour contrast between the lit yellow red wall at left and the shadowed blue grey interior. The tiny human figure adds scale. Good sharpness overall and excellent framing. Tfs!

I like the lemon yellow color of the walls and ceiling in this superb interior image. Good backlight and nice reflections in the polished floor. The 3 uniformed officers make a fine focal point. Good repetition of the arches and columns at the sides. Tfs!

Salut Jean Jacques
I think I prefer the colour version but this is also very good. The top light has given strong shadows at the bottom. Good graphism and sharpness with a wonderful tonal range. The textural contrast between the stripes of wood and the stone or plaster is also striking. Tfs!

You have succeeded in turning an ordinary scene into an extraordinary image! Wonderful silhouettes and graphism with good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. I like the gradation from white at the bottom to grey at the top. Tfs!

This peak sort of looks like Mayon volcano which was erupting and closed when I was in the Philippines some years ago. The curved road at right adds good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. The old stone church or mission makes a fine focal point. Tfs!

I like the strong backlight and graphism as well as the long shadows and textured cobblestones catching the light. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. I like the minimalist colour too. The sunbeams are clearly visible. Tfs!

I might have tried removing any filters (eg, cp) and dialing the camera to 'museum' setting, rather than use flash. The light would be softer, no uv ray damage to the painting, and no hard shadows and glare spots. The crucial central figure's head on the tapestry has been completely obliterated by the flash. The family portraits on the mantelpiece are a nice touch. Where artificial light is strongly reflected I raise the camera higher and use the lcd display setting. Tfs!

Lots to look at in this interesting Salzburg shot. I took a similar shot of the cemetery at the base of the hill between 2 churches. Good color, sharpness and saturation. The greenery and bright flowers contrast well agaisnt the dull lifeless stone tombs. Tfs!
ChrisJ (95136) 2014-10-22 5:56
I know this place, and took several shots but did not have thge superb blue sky depicted here. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation with punchy light contrasts. This fine art graffiti is far more welcome than tagging. Superb warm cold color contrasts too. Tfs!

The yellow Autumn foliage contrasts well against the shadowed, hazy dark blue grey bg mountains. Good sharpness and a marvellous high pov. The sunlit peaks bereft of snow so far are well positioned in the frame. Tfs!
