    Of your recent pictures, this one easily captured my attention. This is a wonderful pattern, and very interesting to see. I like how you framed it. I wonder how does that building looks in a wider shot.

    A very dramatic shot. I would love you could have taken it either with a wider lens (so the whole horse was in the frame) or with a tighter crop, to focus in the animal's face. Nevertheless this is a great action photograph.

    Oh, WOW.

    Any gathering of animal life grabs my attention for many natural reasons, and your shot just had that effect on my. Quite interesting to see how many of them appear in the shot, I guess I never saw that many white birds (what are them, ducks? swans?, sorry, I'm not good at that). It must be a thrilling experience. Thanks for sharing and I hope you will keep posting shots of that place.

    To properly write my critique, I just watched Carmen Miranda singing the "Tico-Tico no Fubá" song. I've known the marvelous Carmen Miranda ever since I was a kid, but never saw/heard this particular song. Classic Miranda!

    So, about the picture, I truly like how you framed this little guy and the focus is perfect on his head. He's even having a bite, quite a moment. Good DOF makes him the only protagonist. Well done, Alexandre!

    Dear Philippe, this is a wonderful shot, a highly dramatic contrast between the clouds and the ground against a golden hour sky. Excellent framing choice as well. Thanks for this!

    I like how you framed this shot, leaving only a small portion of the roofs just for reference and dimension. It's the kind of thing I would hardly think of, thanks for that perspective: The protagonist is the Black Peak, not the human settlement.

    I also like the shades of blue and brown as they appear to sit on top of each other. Thanks, Pavle!

    This is a very diverse shot to analyze. In one hand you got the architecture marvel of the Grand Palace, with those amazing roof details, but the people in the foreground are distracting my eyes from it. I don't say I'd rather have them removed from the scene, but they grab too much of the attention. Then again, that may be exactly your purpose here, so I just note the effect this picture has in me, not criticizing it in your framing choice. The colored ladies are a wonderful motif by themselves. I wonder if you could saturate the sky just a little.

    Evocative church, indeed. I guess the atmosphere must be sublime. It's always a challenge to capture such detailed buildings in one single shot, but you managed it very well. Congrats, Sergio.

    This shot is something I would have had rarely thought of. Wires in front of another "more important" subject are usually an inconvenience, an obstacle, something to avoid, something you wish to vanish with some magic trick. And yet, you managed to make the wires and their occupants the protagonists of a very interesting scene. Lesson for any aspiring photographer (like me): Learn actually see beyond the expected frame. Well done!

    I like very much this picture. Cuba is very similar to my country, but the Malecón in Havana is more packed and colorful than the one in Santo Domingo. I like your composition, as it puts a lot of action in the frame.

    Oh, what an enchanting scene, those leading lines to the bridge are soft and inviting. Nice shot, I wish to place a chair right at that spot and stay there for a while.

    Hi Ike!
    First of all, thanks for your nice comment about my photo. And yes, it was taken at the same place as this yours.
    Your photo is great! I really like the light and the 'dialogue' between the waves and the houses.
    Have a nice weekend,
