Hello Pierre, I am intrigued by the motion blurred object in the center fg. Perhaps there is a stream nearby as the water is brown and murky after heavy rain and floodwaters? Same thing happened in Greece where normally the sea is a wonderful deep blue turquoise color. Tfs!

Bonjour Serge, The suspended plates of ice encrusted on the bare branches look like parasols and give this image the look of a modern art piece. Good sharpness and of course when ice melts it contracts when turning into water leaving those plates high & dry. Tfs!

Hello Pierre, The backlight has been well managed and colour saturation hasn't suffered too much from the strong contrasted light. With the white sky of the trees, I would suggest use a lasoo around those areas, select 'Highlights' only, then add blue / cyan and play around with brightness until it matches the color and tones of the adjacent blue sky. Tfs!

Hello Stephen, You were unlucky. There were similar cruise ships moored in Kotor, Montenegro and in Iraklion Crete. Each of them hold around 5000 passengers and they tend to be spoilt and mollycoddled as well as aggressive. I almost got run over by a hirecar in Kotor carpark. Why they need a car in a city of 1 square mile, I don't know. When I yelled at them to be more careful they replied sarcastically in perfect English 'Have a nice day'. Even the locals don't like them as they are on package tours and tend not to spend and are super frugal with their money. Anyway the diagonal promenade adds good dynamism & lead in lines and perspective. Tfs!

Ola Jorge My boat from Milos arrived in Pireas at midnight back in 2013, so I didn't get to see the town in daylight until I did a daytrip to Hydra in 2016. I like the flattened perspective from the zoom lens. Fantastic sharpness and detail with a clear view of the city of Athens in the distance. Tfs!
