    Hi Malgo

    These minarets look to be in better shape than those in Cairo. The sunset skies provide a magnificent backdrop. Good sharpness and partial silhouettes. Tfs!

    Hello Sasha,

    Good sharpness and nice warm cold colour contrasts between the red boats and the blue grey sea and sky. The reversed 'c' shape of the beach nicely leads the eye around the image. Tfs!

    Ciao Silvio,

    The repetition of the arches adds an interesting addition to this scene. Good colour, sharpness and framing. I like the gradated focus from fg soft to bg sharp. Tfs!

    The curving fence adds a nice lead in line. Good sharpness and nice repetition of the vineyard trellises. Excellent sidelight from the right. Tfs!

    Hello Costantino,

    Excellent use of the strong backlight to get nice silhouettes of the people walking past. I might have added a little more yellow so that the pavement is grey rather than violet. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

    Hi Ian,

    I like the turquoise colour of the sea and the dark threatening blue black storm clouds at top left. The lone seagull at left adds a focal point. Tfs!

    You were indeed lucky to get some water flow in the river lending itself to some superb symmetrical reflections. Good sharpness and nice warm cold colour contrasts. Tfs!

    Hello Jorge,

    Superb silhouettes, and well managed backlighting with the shadow of the palm tree adding linear perspective. The palm itself acts as a natural filter. Tfs!

    Hi Lars

    There was probably a time decades ago when this was a prosperous shopping area for locals, but these days it looks more like rural areas of eastern Europe. Only the buffalo mural adds place & context on the left. Tfs!

    Hi Luciano

    A sad and apt upload to what is happening in north Italy this week. 7 cases confirmed here in Brisbane and they are in the same hospital I was in back in October 1999 when I had a real bad case of flu. So far, 621 people of the 3,711 passengers / crew on-board the Diamond Princess cruise ship moored off Yokohama, Japan have tested positive. Those cruise ships are huge and can contain 5k people, almost like a floating city. Looks like a ghost town here. Good nocturnal shot with excellent sharpness. Tfs!

    Hello Pierre,

    A very impressive war memorial. The guards there did not like a tourist near me jumping in the air for selfies, and said to him, "this is a war memorial, not a circus. Have some respect!" The tricolor Italian flag adds place and context. Tfs!

    This shot just proves that even in rainy weather, it is still possible to get good photographs. Excellent linear perspective with the road guiding the eye towards cloud shrouded peaks on the horizon. Tfs!
