"After the storm” from Primiano D’Apote has some interesting lines pointing me towards the house on the hill. First is the hill itself, filled with orange and texture. Its line is on an upward angle towards the house. Then there is the mountain background, on a downward angle also leading to the house. The sky is filled with pretty blues and pings and also has just enough texture and detail to make out what is in the distance. The playfulness and simplicity is quite appealing to the eye.

"Moeraki Boulders" from Tarik AlTurki has a really cool sense of an other world. It’s not often you see perfectly round and smooth boulders like this. Adding the interesting color toning and strong colored vignette, it really kicks the photo up a level. I love the details in the first boulder, and the cracks and textures on it. The horizon’s color is also quite beautiful.

"The Colours of Life” from LdS has such cool activity happening.  First, it’s a grid of small and large windows.  Each window is leading to a new place, a new home.  On top of that, the lights are each different colors, making the pattern even more interesting.  This is the type of photo that would look super interesting printed huge.

“Mother's love” from Jan Pelcman is simple and pure. It shows emotion and total love for a child. And the photo doesn’t have humans in it.  Jan managed to capture a mother giraffe head butting her child.  The photo has textures, curves and pretty warm tones.  It’s an absolute beauty.

"Angry Dimitrios” from Saki Panagiotopoulos is like a scene from a pirate movie, or Game of Thrones. The water is an amazing tone of teal, and is smooth with slight streaks.  The sky is chaotic with a crazy storm in the distance. Lightening striking the ship, or right behind the ship, is so interesting to see.  The colors pop, the light is beautiful. Overall a winner!

5 kms eastwards of the pittoresque village/town Gythion, you can find this shipwreck Dimitrios. Composition of three photos, the vessel, the sky and the thunders... some moving filter on the foreground, colour changed and so on...

"The dorsal fin” from Iñaki Bolumburu has such a cool tone to it. It’s calming, inviting and slightly warm.  The wide angle adds to the beauty of the fin shaped rock coming out of the water.

Then the water itself is nice and smooth. So smooth you see the details of the rocks below the surface.  The sky is also streaked, adding to the appearance of movement.

Talk about beautiful stories. "Summer Love" from Jake Olson Studios could have many. The story I see when looking at it, is a motocross biker just completed a very difficult practice run. His personal cheerleader (aka girlfriend) was so proud of his accomplishments that she rushed in for a huge kiss before the biker had a chance to stop.

I love the dynamics between the foreground and background. It goes from soft to sharp to soft again. The colors are super vibrant and bright in the middle, on the biker and the girl.

I am enjoying every thing about this photo.

This untitled photo from Dragan Djuric is minimal and really interesting. It’s not your typical minimal photograph, where the white areas are pure white. In fact, there is likely a lot going on at the lower white area of this photo.  But the fog is so thick it transformed the scene into a minimalistic beauty.

“Play Ball” from +Bob Lussier is grand and beautiful. You can tell the photograph was made from a super tall building.  The exposure is longer so you see the streaks of lights from the cars driving through the streets and highways. The river is silky smooth and the evening sky compliments the cool and warm tones throughout the scene.  Then comes the stadium. The lights are on, the game is in play.

"My Umbrella” from Andiyan Lutfi tells a beautiful story of a snail stuck in the rain.  Unfortunately the snail is too slow to get shelter so he grabs the first thing in sight in order to be used as an umbrella.  I think his choice was a poor one.

This is such a beautiful macro photo showing the amazing detail of the snail.  It’s also detailed enough to see the water droplets. The colors are vibrant, cool and warm.  Overall well done.

Affordable and top quality! Rich came to our house and explained the products and service efficiently, and clearly. He made it easy for anyone to understand. The install was fairly quick, maybe 3 hours total with one person. We have a small house so we didn't need much. But we paid for some add-ons which work great as well. I set off the alarm accidentally at first, and the call center was on top of it. So far so good, and we couldn't be happier with GPS!
