[align=left]All have beautiful, eye pleasing colours and are tastefullycomposed, emphisizing what vertical captures are capable of!!...My pick is #1 which has a simple yet striking compositiongiving a sense of movementto the observer. The triangular components of the second shot proclaims the presence of thekeen eyebehind theviewfinder of the camera!! The log at the foreground in the third shot, isthe best which could ever happen to this sight! Yet I'd prefer if you could decrease the distance between the foreground and the background to merge them, just lowering the level of yourpoint of viewa little, riskingthe objective of yourdear camera The last shot which is already renowned for the repetation feel in it requires its mountain and sky be applieda little ppin the PS, IMO.[/align]
Well done, Paul

Those first two have some really impressive colors in them, very Mediterranean

Bahadir,

thanks for your indepth comments and insightful words of reflection about these photos. I think the simplicity of #1 and its colours as well as what you said about movement do make it one of the better ones.

Thanks for your advice about the 3rd photo... I think (now!) you're quite right! Oh dear, I just can't take the photo again though, because of courseour honeymoon is a once in a lifetime thing! But I'll keep this in mind for future captures...

If I get some time I might try to put some PP into the mountain and sky of the last photo... maybe in time.

Thanks for looking!

Paul

John,

I appreciate your comments very much! Indeed those colours ARE very Mediterranean... I miss the brightness and clarity of the colours we found in Greece already... though autumn here in Romania presents its sweet hues of colours too (though rapidly failing with nights around -6 or -7 Celsius....)

Cheers

Paul
