    I like the dappled light and shade. Good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. The diagonal road adds both linear perspective and dynamism. Tfs!

    Ciao Costantino,

    This is my kind of view too. I was lucky enough to spend a few days at Pythagorion back in 2013. Samos is certainly a beautiful island. Tfs!

    Hello Craig ,

    I'd never heard of the Manhattan bridge before so I went hunting and found this image, showing both it, and its more famous neighbor, the Brooklyn Bridge.

    Dear Beverley!

    The whole thing looks like it could crumble into dust at the flick of an eyelid, but I'm sure it's much sturdier than it looks. The boys head at the bottom provides scale. It looks huge! Tfs!

    Bonjour Claude

    I think the cartoon character is Merlin the Magician from Arthurian legends, but Merlin and Santa must go to the same barber!

    This is a smart vertical crop and the seated bus passenger adds interest to the shot. Good warm cold color contrasts between the yellow and blue. Tfs!

    Bonjour, mon ami Denis,

    Splendid warm cold color contrasts with good color and saturation. Impeccable sharpness, & I like the shadows of the trees in the sidelight. The bg peaks with their rocky crags provide a focal point on the vanishing point. Tfs!

    I like the chequered patterns in the fg. They remind me more of racing car flags than chess or Draughts or checkers. The bg lighthouse makes a good focal point. Tfs!
