    Nicely shot, Burak. The way the dark interior frames the opening for the train makes the train extra special. Well done!

    Lovely photo in its simplicity, Peter. The smooth water and colors really set off those tree roots. An effective addition is the reflection of trees at the top that helps to frame your work in a nice way.

    Another fine photo, Nevyan. The tree is perfectly placed to invite the eye to look at the whole scene. I also like the square format! You might experiment with the colors under and around the clouds. You probably captured them accurately, but they look just a tiny bit muddy to me. Super work!

    Beautiful symmetry and darker tones, Chatelier. The point of view is also outstanding. Nice post processing on the sky, too!

    This has a lovely point of view, Justinas! You might experiment with the sky and trees in the background, as they look an odd color to me, but the photo is really striking with that amazing long exposure!

    Yes, the pixelization from enlargement created some weird artifacts. Nevertheless, I like this old tree and the angle you had chosen from which to photograph it. I suspect this is why photographers all have bad backs, eh Peter? You might try experimenting with idealizing the sky. It is not a lovely blue on my computer, and a little tweaking with color might help. Or try it in black and white? Anyway, it's a fine photo, and enjoyed gazing at it.

    It's hard to resist a good sunset, Jose! This is not only lovely colors, but the composition is also very effective, with the brightest light in a very effective spot.

    I think the plane wing adds some interest to this shot, Neyvan. While it's a lovely landscape and well composed, the wing really helps tell the story here.

    Wonderful shot my friend. Madagascar is on top of my list of places to visit for a long time and your photo has reminded me of that wish.. so I'll check out when is the best time to visit and if it is June or so.. I'll do that.. thanks once again (so many times already) for the inspiration !

    Hey I like this a lot, Clark. The angle of the shadow works well as an introduction into the shot, and the poles keep the eye going quite nicely. We're then satisfied by the mountains in the back. Lovely!

    To experiment with: You might try adding some contrast to get more darks and lights to see what happens. Also, if you do an unsharp mask at a high pixel rate but low percentage, you might be able to bring in more "clarity" if you wanted any more.

    I like it!
