    Great capture of the moment showing expression. Nice and sharp.

    Hi Tomek,

    The soft tones combine with geometric delight in this shot. I especially like the POV and how you captured the shadows and slivers of light therein. It is a dreamlike shot, and I would like to walk forever down this long corridor with the heavens above.

    Well captured.

    Very nice pattern shot. Blue and white create a minimalist calm. Perhaps cropping above the lower fence would make it cleaner.

    Well captured. The horizontal symmetry with the reflection in the water works well here. The left side is a bit burned out, could be fixed by darkening with the burn tool.

    A lovely, dreamy foggy image. Nice minimalist touch by centering the city and bridge, even though I know this is probably smog. Reflections in the water look ghostly.

    I love this street scene. Great expression on the old man's face, although I wish the face was sharper. Maybe use a smaller aperture for greater DOF. The pavement foreground is sharp as a tack, but the focus falls off quickly. When in doubt, it's always a good idea to focus about 1/3 into the frame.
    P.S. you might be able to sharpen his face a bit in Photoshop. Also, judicious burning and dodging of a slightly blurred area can make it seem sharper. I'll try a workshop.

    Beautiful colours, although I wonder if it's manipulated. Love the layers of hills through the fog and the waves in the water. Adds nice rhythm to the vertial format of the image. Surfer is well placed in the sun's reflection, but I find the little white lights in the middle left a bit distracting. They could be easily cloned out.

    Yes, Cesky Krumlov is a beautiful city. This is an interesting angle on the river and the church.

    Nice colours accentuating the mostly monochrome image. Too bad about the plastic flap on the left side of the stairs.

    Interesting to see these famous rocks covered in snow. It's hard to make a bad composition here, and yours is no exception. I love the layers of diagonal lines formed by the "fins" of the canyon. Also some interesting hoodoos. I wonder if the photo isn't a bit too blue? Reducing the blue in favour of yellow might make this look a bit more realistic.

    Terrific composition with the woman's arm going diagonally to the pot while at the same time showing off her bracelets. I like her friendly expressoion. Good colours, sharpness, lighting. A masterful candid portrait.

    Terrific grapphic composition and vivid colours. I don't quite understand what's going on here, but it doesn't matter. The image is intriguing. I would crop from the top to the upper edge of the blue for a cleaner image.

    Hello Paula. Welcome to TrekEarth. You've made a good start with a nice picture. I like the graphic composition, good lighting for an indoor shot. Sharp throughout. Well done.
    But I'm Hungarian and I know that this is not the original old wooden subway, which still runs for a couple of stations under Andrasi Ut to the Hosok Tere in Budapest. Your picture shows the new Metro which is also very nice and some of its lines go under the Danube River. :)

    Good panning technique. Nice colours. Did you try using a tripod instead of a monopod and panning horizontally with the head only? That might get you great control of the motion.

    I have never been to Iran but heard about its beautiful tiled buildings. Thanks for sharing a bit of it with us. Nice composition with the various geometric shapes dividing the individual tile mosaics.
