    Czesc Mariusz!

    I've been to the real one in Venice and also to the Las Vegas facsimile. This one seems to be the least crowded of the three. Good sharpness and nice warm cold colour contrasts. Tfs!

    Hello Kasia,

    It appears as though the top floor of this building collapsed during the big earthquake and repairs are ongoing when the occupants can afford some piecemeal repairs. Nice warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and red bricks. Tfs!

    Good diminishing linear perspective looking down the hallway with the fg instrument and curious tourists providing a fine focal point. Excellent sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Hello Christiane,

    A good downward pov from a nice elevated vantage point. I like the splash of yellow added by the fg flowers, and the orange fence like structure starting in the bottom left corner provides strong lead in lines. Good sharpness and the many al fresco diners seem to have validated the good standard and price of the local restaurants. Tfs!

    Merhaba Mesut,

    The focus seems to on her thigh and butterfly patterned stomach rather than her face. Did you try using manual focus? It sometimes gives better results than auto setting. That said, effective tight framing and a nice downward pov on the small girl with the enigmatic eyes. Tfs!

    A superb zoom shot of the Prague Castle and Cathedral, taken I guess from one of the many towers in the old city across the river. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Hello Silvio,

    I've been to this magnificent cathedral within Prague Castle & its certainly worth a visit. Fantastic repetition of the patterns formed by the vaulted ceiling arches. It's hard to avoid the crowds in Prague. Good sharpness and I like the vertical format. Tfs!

    What an incredible downward view on the flooded, serpentine gorge. Good sharpness and tight framing. Wonderful natural looking colour and saturation. I wonder if there are tour boats that cruise this section of the river? Tfs!

    Hi Lars,

    It's nice to see that even in Ireland there are national parks and not all the country is given over to farming and settlement. Excellent sharpness and nice reflections. Also good to see no sign of man-made intrusions such as telegraph poles, wind turbines, power transmission towers, roads, highrise apartment blocks etc which is often a problem in densely populated countries like South Korea. Tfs!

    Bonjour Philippe,

    I like the almost square format and superb sharpness. The angles pov on the bg chateau and the huge tree partly obscuring the building add interest. The person at left provides scale and animates the scene. Nice shadow play on the lawn. Tfs!

    Hi Mesut,

    Good head and shoulders portrait of this famous Turkish photographer. He looks more sad than grumpy. I like the slight downward pov and the highlights captured in his eyes. Tfs!

    Hello Jean,

    A good downward view of this rocky, cliff-side garden with excellent sharpness. The people clustered around the centre provide scale. The seashore at top right adds place and context. I like the zig zag paths leaging down to the rocky beach. Tfs!

    A superb trio of images from Bukhara depicting an amusing daily life scene. I like the bg patterns on the wall and the woman counting her pennies. The trolley and bread are good workshop photos which complete the story. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    A superb triptych of the elegant white swans and their slightly ungainly looking cygnets. Wonderful reflections and ripples in the water with the rough bark on the trees providing texture. Good sharpness in all 3 images. Tfs!

    Bonjour Serge,

    I like the repetition of the bricks still visible as a sort of texture screen beneath the mural of a giant hand. Nice repetition of the red and blue squares and triangles. Good light and shadow details in the expressive hand. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre,

    These ancient Egyptian obelisks taken from Luxor / Karnak grace quite a few cities in Europe. The Latin text and hieroglyphics make interesting contrasts. Good sharpness and a wonderful blue sky backdrop. Tfs!
