    Bonjour Nicolas

    Excellent graphism with the dark fg arch framing the lighter toned arch in the bg. Good sharpness and the icicles at right add mood and atmosphere. Tfs!

    Hi Lars,

    You were lucky to see the Grand Tetons. Looks a little like the Matterhorn in Switzerland. Good sharpness and the 3 jagged snow capped peaks add symmetry to the composition. Tfs!

    Salut Jean

    That green cyan fencing and the red and white barricades are new and kind of disturb the view a little but that's not your fault. The red roofed building with the portrait of Mao contrasts well with a rare blue sky. Good sharpness and the people animate the scene. Tfs!

    Kalispera Costantino,

    I've only seen this agora / market place at night so thanks for the daylight shot. Good sharpness and excellent colour and saturation. Nice warm cold color contrasts too. Tfs!

    Hi Malgo,

    Missed this one. Good symmetry with the 3 doors and I like the ivy like decorations on the walls. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. The people add scale and animate the scene. Nice reflections in the floor. Tfs!

    Hello Miguel,

    The A shaped temple is a fine focal point and the fg path adds excellent lead in lines and perspective. Good sharpness and the surrounding forest enhances the atmosphere. Tfs!

    A good daily life scene from this attractive Indian hill town. Excellent sharpness and the lady in a hydrid red pink sari at left and her daughter in yellow add a bright splash of color. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio,

    I like the soft, diffused light and minimalist colour in this shot. An excellent high vantage point with superb sharpness. I like the opposing diagonals of the fg ridge and the bg village. Tfs!

    Hi Kasia,

    Missed this one. A good candid portrait of the boy with perfect sharpness and nice use of a shallow dof. Good highlights in both eyes. The secondary boy in the bg balances the composition. Tfs!

    Missed this one. The fiery reddish orange tree at left adds a wonderful warm cold colour contrast with the blue grey skies and water. Good sharpness and the inlet of the canal at right adds perspective. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge

    Always nice to look at chilly snow scenes like this on a hot summer's day of 34c in the southern hemisphere. The statue looks as though it's holding out a hand testing for snowflakes, or to hold a passing bird, but I am sure they have long since flown south. Tfs!

    You had better weather than me. But even in rain this trio of ancient Greek Temples was still worth a visit. Good lighting and sharpness and a nice warm cold color contrast. Tfs!

    Hello Luciano

    There are so many sweet little towns in Italy that no one has ever heard of. Good sharpness and well composed using the rule of thirds. Excellent sharpness and nice warm cold color contrasts. The grazing sheep are making the most of the green pastures before the winter rains set in. Tfs!

    Hello Janusz,

    The dual wheel-tracks meandering through the heath and down into the saddle then back up the green meadows and through the coniferous forest add a lot of depth and perspective. Good sharpness and the bare rocky peak provides a strong focal point. Tfs!

    I also visited Bran castle and stayed overnight in the town before heading back to Brasov. It was Halloween when I visited and they had a lot of carved pumpkins placed all around the castle. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. Tfs!

    The abandoned house occupies a prominent position atop the hill and overlooking the sea. Good sharpness and terrific warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky / sea and the reddish orange terracotta tiles of the roof. It does not look as though it would take much to repair this house. The dark green pine tree at right balances the composition. Tfs!

    The distorted reflections are almost like an abstract painting. Good colour, sharpness and saturation. Effective tight framing too. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre,

    Now this really does look like an old vintage car and I would hazard a guess around the 1930's. Yep. 1938 in the note. Good sharpness and nice reflections in the shiny bonnet. Tfs!

    Hi Ian

    Reminds me of the old Bellevue Hotel with its iron lace verandas. It was demolished by Joh Bjelke Peresen for the new 1977 State Parliament house high rise, visible at right in the link below. Just recently the Executive building was demolished as part of the Queen's Wharf redevelopment. It will look like Darling Harbour! Good sharpness and perspective. Tfs!
