    Nicely shot, Burak. The way the dark interior frames the opening for the train makes the train extra special. Well done!

    Lovely photo in its simplicity, Peter. The smooth water and colors really set off those tree roots. An effective addition is the reflection of trees at the top that helps to frame your work in a nice way.

    Another fine photo, Nevyan. The tree is perfectly placed to invite the eye to look at the whole scene. I also like the square format! You might experiment with the colors under and around the clouds. You probably captured them accurately, but they look just a tiny bit muddy to me. Super work!

    Beautiful symmetry and darker tones, Chatelier. The point of view is also outstanding. Nice post processing on the sky, too!

    What a lovely place to go fishing. I like the composition with the two men in the lower corner. Well done!

    This has a lovely point of view, Justinas! You might experiment with the sky and trees in the background, as they look an odd color to me, but the photo is really striking with that amazing long exposure!

    Yes, the pixelization from enlargement created some weird artifacts. Nevertheless, I like this old tree and the angle you had chosen from which to photograph it. I suspect this is why photographers all have bad backs, eh Peter? You might try experimenting with idealizing the sky. It is not a lovely blue on my computer, and a little tweaking with color might help. Or try it in black and white? Anyway, it's a fine photo, and enjoyed gazing at it.

    It's hard to resist a good sunset, Jose! This is not only lovely colors, but the composition is also very effective, with the brightest light in a very effective spot.

    I think the plane wing adds some interest to this shot, Neyvan. While it's a lovely landscape and well composed, the wing really helps tell the story here.

    Hey I like this a lot, Clark. The angle of the shadow works well as an introduction into the shot, and the poles keep the eye going quite nicely. We're then satisfied by the mountains in the back. Lovely!

    To experiment with: You might try adding some contrast to get more darks and lights to see what happens. Also, if you do an unsharp mask at a high pixel rate but low percentage, you might be able to bring in more "clarity" if you wanted any more.

    I like it!

    Hi Ines,
    Beautiful capture! The lighting is wonderful with such lovely warm shades of gold and orange. I like the contrast of the silhouetted reeds and the beautiful ripples. Very nice composition too, showing more water and less sky, and the foreground grasses adding nice detail and depth.
    Thank you for sharing!

    Hi Sumit,
    Welcome to Trekearth!
    Lovely photo! Nice choice of subject too. Mountains are always great to photograph as they are all unique and have different shapes and sizes, always making for an interesting photo. The composition is well done and the photo overall is dramatic with the clouds and the lovely rich green tones. Did you use a filter or do any post-processing to the clouds?
    Thankyou for sharing,
    Kind regards,
    Claudia

    Hi Imram,
    What a lovely looking starfish. I like how it is standing up and posing for you :) The starfish contrasts nicely with the blue sky and water.
    Just some suggestions: You have used the rule of thirds well with the sky and sand, however to make the composition even better I would suggest positioning the starfish off-centre to make the composition more appealing to the eyes. Also I'd rotate the photo ever so slightly counter-clockwise to remove the horizon tilt. Thanks for sharing,
    Kind regards,
    Claudia

    Hi Saleem,
    Great photo! You have captured the moment and the atmosphere very well in your photo. I agree with everyone that the dust really contributes something special to the composition. I also like the point of view, with the farmer positioned to the right and the cattle to the left. It gives the photo good depth of field. Well captured! It is almost like a painting!
    Kind regards,
    Claudia

    Olá Clecio,
    Very nice photo! I really like the angle at which you took the photo! It gives good depth. The colours and details are lovely too. I would probably just crop out the sky to give the photo a better composition, using thirds (1 third sky, 2 thirds sand). I've done a workshop to show you what I mean. I hope you don't mind.
    Well captured!
