    First MarieLouise I am glad to see you are back, and my condolences for your loss.
    The Megalith monument which you made a tribute of describing your beloved mother's is well placed within the picture, distinct and well lit.
    Keep up with us.
    Bon-weekend,
    Ike

    Hello Béatrice

    What's this? A famous, tourist honeypot location instead of your signature minimalist urban sidestreets?? But it's in monochrome, so you're forgiven! Taken fron Circular Quay, so not as unique as Noel imagines, but an interesting, and for me, nostalgic image.

    It sometimes rain, Luciano, we can't be choosey about the weather while traveling.
    But, otherwise, it would had been yet another evening photo, so the rain made a "title" for this photo.
    Despite the rain, its a nice sight of the way people managed even with those conditions, and the outcome pleases me.
    Buona sabato,

    Side light with warm tones beautifully "penetrates" through the naked trees, Krzysztof.
    POV with a good part of the picture with the grove on side, is well managed.

    Light in a very pleasant warm tones, Christiane, that's the main asset for this compo.
    Nicely combined the balloon and the sky-scraper in LVS.

    Buongiorno Carlo,
    White lambs against dark tones of the green grass, in BB&W though. The contrast and sharpness superbly rendered - but I'd really like to see this in colors. Anyway, a nice allocation of the pic. space.

    Good morning Chris,
    Its rather a very modern design, something one would not think of Egypt. The spot lights are "dotting" the picture, it was the first to catch my eyes when opened the thumbnail.
    Fine indoor's photo.
    Have a nice weekend,

    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!

    Missed this one. Effective tight framing on the rustic window with good sharpness and the vine nicely framing all around the window and adding some Autumn colors of red and brown. Tfs!

    A fantastic sunset with punchy light contrasts and sensational silhouettes. Wonder color saturation and good tight framing too. Love the sunbeams radiating outwards. 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 John,

    It looks to be a lovely hotel but a bit over my budget. Nice to see the rich luxuriant greenery of Spring when all the trees in Romania look dead after a long cold winter. 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!

    A nice daily life scene of the trio of happy couples. Good sharpness and yes the man does looks lightly wary and apprehensive. The converging lines in the pavement add 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!

    A lovely blue sky backdrop that contrasts so well with the red rooftops in the fg. Good sharpness and density levels with clean whites and solid blacks, giving punchy contrast levels. I like the deep perspective afforded by the converging lines of the street towards a bg vp. Tfs!

    Hi Paul

    In answer to your question, the target was the Hotel Yugoslavia next door to the Chinese Consulate across the river from my shot of the Ministry of Defense (MOD) North and South wings. Here's a map.

    An amazing array of corpulent animals & a human couple. The crowds add scale. Good density levels and sharpness too. Tfs!
