I've sat out on the upper floor terrace of the Shake Shack a few times with a meal and drink admiring the Bosporus. Good sharpness and the distinctive red tram adds a nice warm cold color contrast agaisnt the blue grey asphalt. And this is Beyoglu too. I initially and wrongly thought it was still Taksim. Tfs.

Hi, Indeed, this (or maybe other similar canals) is you favourite theme. Awesome depth here. How many kilometers it is to the end? This time nicely composed with the small rusty bridge, in the colour of the old grasses. Pleasant simple houses on the right side.
WArm regards MAlgo

Hi John, You usually show us fabulous tulips fields, but now we see the soil for potatoes. Not so colourful but again with strong converging lines.
Interesting note about the potatoes. They were introduced in Netherlands quite early.
Nice picture, not much signs of spring yet.
WArm regards MAlgo

Missed this one. All work and no play! The elderly man with the walking stick animates the scene. Wonderful use of the fg arch as a framing device. The bg blue sky contrasts well against the yellow facade of the building. The multicolored leadlight window at left adds interest. Tfs

The dark fish-trap against the lighter toned wall adds a marvellous graphic element. Good sharpness and effective tight framing with no part of the scene wasted. The undulating red tiles in profile at the top contrast well against the blue sky. Excellent textural and tonal details in the crumbling and peeling wall. Tfs.

Missed this one. Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the orange sunset skies and the blue hues, enhanced by the red roofs of the lighthouse and storehouses at right to give a superb warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Perspective has been well managed placing the verticals centrally. Tfs.

A superb daily life scene of the boy seated in front of the the mother and baby section of the wall mural. Striking colors of red and yellow tapering off to blue at the top. The b&w charcoal like sketch of the couple at left with what looks like the local equivalent of Pringles, balance the composition. Tfs.

Bonjour mon cher ami Philippe
Well composed using the rule of thirds with good sharpness and natural looking colour. The two conical towers nicely bookend and frame the shot. Effective tight framing and superb sidelight and shadow detail. The fg shrubs add depth and a splash of greenery. Tfs.

Hello dear Lisa
Seems Australians are now living in a fascist State. It's good to see you still popping in to TE from time to time. Its all about the minerals and natural resources on the land that the greedy multinational companies want unfettered access to without having to pay indigenous people any royalties. The sooner this Neo liberal Con government supporting this land grab is gone, the better. The gum leaves are making me homesick. The analogy of "where there's smoke there's fire" comes to mind in this image.

A superb daily life scene of the three women, with good sharpness and realistic color. Effective tight framing and well framed and composed. The old man at right seems detached from the older woman. Maybe they had a minor argument? Then again he looks more Spanish than African in descent. He might be just a next door neighbor in a town house arrangement. Tfs.

I like the low point of view. which accentuates the dynamism of the fast running waters of the river. The image is well exposed and has agreeable natural colours and very good sharpness. Very good rendering of the textural detail in walls and rocks.

As seems often in this part of the world the overcast sky does not do you any favours. Notwithstanding, colours ans clarity are more than acceptable whilst the chosen point of view shows the naive architecture of this country church to good effect.

This monumental tomb is very impressive and sits well under the stormy sky. I like the point of view with the gravel path curving round the frame drawing the viewer inwards. Excellent colours and clarity.
