Hello Marius, perfect sharp focusing on the pelican against what appears to me, a softer focus on the background with that lovely sunrise.
Regards Jean.

Hello Raimundo, a simple enough subject but presented with imagination, cropping/composing it in the way that you have.

Hello Jack, a fantastic sunset, such a beautiful palette of colours.
The landscape in silhouette, and the silhouetted trees frame the view perfectly.

Hello David, a lovely point of view, so clear and bright. It gives a very good impression of the city. The canoeists in their colourful boats are the finishing touch.

Hello Daisy,
a clever shot with a clever title, it really gives the impression of so many lives where people pass each other, and yet know nothing about one another.
Bravo!

Hi David, a natural arrangement that you observed purely by chance; the sunlight has highlighted the beautiful colours and the variety of textures.
I like the composition with the diagonal line and the contrasting texture of the sand.

Hello David, the red flowers do stand out against the blur of the blue bg.
The furry grass adds to the composition.
Good title.
Lovely shot.

Hello Erwin, yes, the b/w presentation works perfectly.
A good close up; we are able to compare the patterns of each animal.
They are beautiful creatures.

Hi Michel

I've looked at this several times now, and every time I think the snow, which is the main subject lacks texture and interest. Sorry, just my thoughts.

Hi Pedro

I have a 100mm macro lens and I know how difficult it is to use close up as a macro, mine is a brilliant lens for portraits as well. But when used as a macro it has such a shallow depth of field you have to be so accurate with it. When I look at this I think you have got the focus just right. Perhaps you could have adjusted the contrast etc in pp, but a good result never the less.

A well composed image with pleasant colours. Even the mast in the centre doesn't bother me.

Hi Erwin

A good action shot that's well composed with good detail in the horse. I'm not keen on the desaturation though.

A nice photo with attractive colours. I think you could have taken the time to remove the cables though.

Hi Jack

Nikon!The man seriously needs a new camera. Maybe a Canon? I like it. Everything a photo needs. Maybe I would crop a little off the top.

Yeah, the response is terrible now on this site. I like the image, and the addition of some catchlights, I think, would bring this to like.

Hi Raimundo

I love the image. My only comment is that the top third could maybe be cropped out. Everything else looks good to me.

Hi Dijana

It's a beautifully composed and exposed image, plus you have captured the movement of the rain very well. But the focus bugs me. I don't know if you focused in the wrong place or the depth of field is too shallow. I do like it though.
