    Hi Chris,
    Excellent blue hour photo. The exposure reveals the colours of the lights perfectly, and the crowd of people is also visible but not obtrusive. And yes, someone should tell the designer that snow crystals have 6-fold symmetry, not 4-fold.

    Hi Luis,
    This is a classic fountain, and the composition is good. But I think there is too much saturation and contrast, giving the photo an unreal appearance. Are the blue colors on the marble real, or an artifact of the saturation?

    Hi Craig,
    The long exposure gives a nice look to the water. This night shot puts the focus on the fountain and the buildings behind, with everything else in darkness, to give a dramatic effect.

    Hi Mariusz,
    The close fit of all three elements of the photo works very well. The two towers look great in the sunlight, and you have captured all the details and texture of the statue. Excellent sharpness and depth of field.

    Hi Jorge,
    A good point of view looking through the door into the golden room beyond. Excellent sharpness and good exposure under difficult conditions. I would add more contrast to make the paintings stand out better. The artwork is quite primitive compared to the paintings in churches in western Europe at the time.

    Hi Ike,
    A good view of classic mountain scenery. There is even a waterfall on the left. The foreground is a bit blurred, but that often happens when you take a photo from a moving bus. The waterfall is the Arpenaz Falls, and the mountain at the back is Aiguille Rouge. The site is close to Sallanches. I have a photo of the this area in my France gallery.

    With all that decoration on the facade and tower, this building looks like it is 400 years old, not 100 or so. The photo is well lit and sharp. Interesting clouds too.

    Hi Lars,
    The sharpness is excellent in the large version. All the details of the architecture are evident in this amazing old building. The afternoon light is good for showing off the tall tower. Congratulations on photo number 1250!

    Hi Mariusz,
    Fabulous saturated colours make this photo a winner. The sparse leaves do not hide the priory ruins which we can see well enough. The splash of bright green grass in front of the ruins makes a good contrast with the red and orange leaves.

    A good point of view showing two contrasting subjects: the curve of the bridge and the sharp triangles of the boat sails. The back-lighting creates interesting silhouettes. Well observed.

    A well framed photo with the giraffe front and centre. It is bright tones are brought out by the dark tree behind and the dark clouds. The sepia treatment means we concentrate on the different textures and shapes here.

    The fog does make the autumn colours quite subdued, but this makes us concentrate on the shapes of the branches and leaves. Good light control and sharpness.

    I like the composition here with the two prominent green plants in the foreground and the plain stretching away to the barren mountains beyond. I would be tempted to apply more saturation.
