    Hello Ike.

    One I spotted in your random gallery. A superb nocturnal view of the two towers with reasonable sharpness and strong light contrasts. Tfs!

    Hi Gert,

    You had perfect weather! The yacht and the helicopter are 2 bonus features. Good sharpness & Simone and Glenn are possibly married with 3 kids and a mortgage by now! Tfs!

    Hello Silvio,

    A nice contrast in textures between the rough bark of the tree at right and the smoother more subtle stone fašade of the church. Excellent sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    Although there was flowering wisteria in Jiangsu when I lived there, somehow this French version is cleaner, sharper and brighter, probably on account of the absence of air pollution. A nice triptych. Tfs!

    Reflections are well known for giving richer, deeper saturation than the original subject and here is no exception. Good sharpness and tight framing. Tfs!

    Hello John,

    I like the textural contrasts in the ploughed and contoured fields at right. Good colour, sharpness and saturation. The road at left adds linear perspective. Tfs!

    Hi Paul

    Semantics. Social distancing and physical distancing mean very much the same thing. In law, the intent of a statement is the deciding factor. Clearly they were talking about spacing between people, not classes. The virus does not discriminate between rich or poor, working class or elite, politician or pauper. Yet another example of political correctness / cancel culture out of control & over the top. Anyway, a lovely beach reminiscent of tropical islands in neighboring Thailand. Tfs!

    Hello Mariusz,

    Red and cyan are perfect colour opposites on the colour wheel. The blue sky also contrasts well with the warm orange tiles & the red gate tones. Good sharpness and tight framing. Tfs!

    A magnificent church interior shot with striking warm cold colour contrasts between the red and blue tones. The carpet adds good linear perspective towards the Altar. Tfs!

    Salut Denis,

    A terrific landscape of this delightful coastal scenery and the sharply truncated rock layers are geologically interesting. I like the turquoise colour of the sea and superb sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Guten Tag Sven

    Germany certainly has a wealthy collection of historic old castles. I lie the soft diffused light and framing using the rule of thirds. Reasonably sharp, and the forest setting is lovely and reminiscent of Neuschwanstein in Bavaria / Bayerne. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio,

    I wonder if it would be possible to reintroduce the crayfish in to the river? Or maybe an enterprising businessman could start an aquaculture farm supplying crayfish to local restaurants? Anyway, a pleasant riverside scene with good sharpness and beautiful reflections. Tfs!

    Australia is lucky to have such magnificent alpine scenery in New Zealand, only 3 hours flight away, and comparable to anything in the Canadian Rockies, Swiss Alps or Tyrol in Austria. Good sharpness, colour and saturation with a nice reflection. Tfs!

    Hello Robert,

    I had the same thought as Gert. Looks similar to a big water wheel I saw in Cordoba in Spain. The man reading a brochure enlivens the scene. Good sharpness and lighting. Tfs!

    Hello Bev,

    I think I prefer the grounds as seen here. Both my experiences of tanneries are horrible memories of the smell of death and rotting meat. 50 years later and you would never know that the air and water were once polluted. This is so much nicer. Good to see a few people outdoors enjoying the Spring sunshine too. Tfs!
