    Hi Miguel,

    Red and cyan are the perfect match of opposite colours. Good sharpness and saturation. Looks like a tourist has got in on the act and the locals are watching him closely. Tfs!

    Bonjour Pierre,

    The woman in the red swim suit stands out well against the blue water of the swimming pool. Good sharpness, colour and saturation. The coconut palms add a tropical mood. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    It's good that they have real sled dogs as part of the display and not plastic ones or simple photos. They look well fed and cared for. Tfs!

    Salut Claude,

    A good downward pov with relatively little motion blur visible. These cyclists move fast. So it was a good idea to choose a location where they slow down. Tfs!

    Hello Ian

    Effective tight framing on this momentarily deserted cloister. Looks a bit damp judging from the green moss. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs!

    Hi Abmdsudi,

    I like the oblique fingers of rice reaching out into the blue water. Good warm cold color contrasts and the boat with the thatched roof at right is the icing on the cake. Tfs!

    Fantastic warm vs cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and the rust red tints on the distant rocky peaks. The curving barrage adds perspective and the subtle reflections in the barrage are nice. Tfs!

    I like the soft pastel colours and diffused lighting. Good sharpness and the 2 young musician provide excellent focal points. The selective focus and shallow dof work well here. Tfs!

    Hello Abmdsudi,

    I rather liked Lijiang with its rushing canals and bridges although here the water is sedate enough for some nice reflections. Good colour and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hej Gert,

    My first guess was that this was taken in the 1960's and I wasn't far wrong. Maybe it was the old style cars and clothing, although the bg architecture is timeless. Good tonal range and sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge,

    Good decision to convert to b&w with the white sky. Much of Nanjing was destroyed in WWII. But I am happy to see it has been rebuilt. Good tonal range and sharpness and an interesting note. Tfs!
