    Hi Ian,

    A fantastic pair of photos showing the unbelievable attention to detail in this mosque. The Islamic artists had a great understanding of geometry as can be seen in their repetition of complex curved shapes to produce pleasing result when viewed up close or from a distance. Tiles retain their colour and lustre for centuries so they look as good now as when they were made. Impressive sharpness and exposure.

    Hi Lars,

    Your photo makes me want to visit this beautiful town: canals decorated with flowers, lovely old buildings, green trees and sunny sky. It has it all. A sharp image with excellent depth of field and great composition and colours.

    Hi Costa,

    You did well to capture this rider in the photo frame while also showing a nice street lamp and a tree silhouetted against the sky. The sunset colours give the photo an almost monochrome look, like an old sepia photograph.

    Hi Murat,

    The exposure is excellent here, without much burning out of the highlights but showing plenty of detail in the shadows. The composition enables us to see both the omphalion on the floor and the amazing ceiling decorations. I like the way the omphalion reflects the golden light from the chandeliers.

    A great action shot with wonderful colours. I like the way we can see the faces of the excited children (and adults). The colourful background really adds to the carnival atmosphere. Great sharpness an exposure.

    Hi Ian,

    A great montage of bright flowers. The colours and exposure are very good. I think the bottom left flower is a Tetratheca, probably Tetratheca thymifolia (occurs all through the NSW coastal region), but I could be wrong.

    This is a pleasant scene with low light and blue sky. The two towers give a nice symmetry to the photo, with the old bridge in between them. Good composition and sharpness.

    Hi Luciano,

    It is indeed a beautiful church with wonderful decorations and design. It's good to discover unexpected gems like this when you are exploring a city or town. Good sharpness and composition. The highlights are slightly overexposed by the bright sunlight coming through the windows, but this is difficult to control.

    A beautiful sunset photo with great colours and sharpness. The flash worked well here because we can see the blue colour of the boat, which provides a good contrast with the red colours of the rest of the photo.

    Hi Mariusz,

    An intriguing and well composed photo. It looks like a surrealist painting, and your composition makes it look like the moon is sitting in the structure in the foreground (baptismal font?).

    Hi Silvio,

    A good sharp photo of this old painting, showing the intricate details. Great sharpness and exposure. It has a strong Byzantine influence and looks much older, possibly early Middle Ages, than the paintings in the side panels which look typical of the seventeenth century.

    Hi Bev,

    I wouldn't have picked this as being in Yorkshire, and certainly not in a town called Grewelthorpe. It's a lovely building, especially the intricate carving. The close-ups in the workshops are very enlightening too.
