    Hello Silvio,

    Perfect density levels that have given punchy light contrasts and ideal saturation. Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the yellow red castle walls and the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    The grey roofed house behind a white picket fence is enhanced no end by the luxuriant green forest enclosing it. Good sharpness and already parts of the ivy are changing color to red. Tfs!

    Nice repetition of the yellow corn cobs, repeated further back within the basket. Excellent sharpness and saturation. The vendor woman in her bright and cheerful dress and shirt provides a focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Janusz

    A tremendous mountain view and the foot track following the ridge to the summit provides excellent perspective. Good sharpness and color. The sunlit yellow green grass contrasts well with the blue sky. Tfs!

    Hello Lars,

    Interesting for me to see the fog as there wasn't any when I was there. I like how it enshrouds the very tops of the 2 support towers. Excellent sharpness and a good angled pov. Tfs!

    Hi John

    I am hoping that there is only a traffic jam on the bg bridge and they aren't using it as a car park. Wonderful reflections with impeccable sharpness and realistic color and contrast. Tfs!

    The overarching branch of the palm tree provides an excellent frame. It also adds depth and layering to the composition. The distant cathedral at top left makes a lovely focal point. Tfs!

    Hi Gert. Even closer to Australia is the old Portuguese colony of East Timor. There are credible theories that they discovered Australia long before the Dutch & James Cook.

    This map clearly shows Yorke Peninsula in South Australia at the bottom

    Here's what is looks like:

    But I digress. I like the zig zag pattern of the stairs and the 3 part bell tower at the top. Good sharpness and the fg people add scale. Tfs!

    Hi Danos

    This is instantly recognisable as the Botticelli masterpiece "The Birth of Venus" (Aphrodite) painted during the Italian Renaissance in 1486. A very good rendition by this talented street artist. Tfs!
