A superb rural scene of the long haired goats and sheep with excellent sharpness and smart choice of a vertical frame. The shepherd in a straw hat and shorts is an integral part of the scene and provides both scale & context. Good colour and saturation. Tfs.

Good sharpness with superb density levels giving punchy light contrasts and nice saturation. The person adds scale and animates the scene. I might have tried to centre the verticals in a pattern like: / | \ so a slight rotation to the right to get the verticals in the centre nice and perpendicular. Tfs.

The fg layer of pink flowers adds depth and a nice warm cold colour contrast against the blue sky. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. The column at left with a statue atop it adds a good focal point and the people in the bg provide scale and animate the scene. Tfs.

Missed this one. Incredible repetition of the square & diamond shaped shadows, with good sharpness and saturation. The red and blue colors set up a very good warm cold color contrast. Perspective has been well managed. Nice repetition of the bg white umbrellas, too. Tfs.

Hi dear Christiane
Good sharpness with excellent use of diminishing linear perspective with all lines converging from left to right towards the vanishing point at the 'cora' block at right. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red text and curved arch and the blue sky. Good reflections in the windows and some interesting repetitive patterns. Tfs.

I have recently taken several shots of this species in our Stewart Park. I was afraid to show it here though as I thought moderators may see it as too common. But indeed I don't recall seeing this species in Poland.
Extraordinary quality of the picture. We can see the texture of the feathers or the feet. We can admire the subtle differences in the color tones. You have also captured it in a brownish setting which looks like a moor indeed. Beautiful picture, I really enjoy it.

Punchy light contrasts in this superb b&w image with good tonal contrasts between the light and dark tones. Good sharpness and the man animates the scene. Good inclusion of the iconic Route 66 sign. Smart choice of a vertical frame and good density levels. Tfs.

A fine downward pov on thee ruins of the old bridge at Hasankeyf. Taken from the upper terrace of the teahouse, perhaps? Good sharpness and the people frolicking in the water animate the scene. I like the long shadows cast by the pylon and trees along the opposite bank. Tfs.
