I think unresolved sharpen on my monitor, but certainly beautiful light & colour, one of my favorites in this challenge.

Very pretty colors. The lighting seems a bit off - HDR type processing? Composition a little static - nothing pulls me into moving about the image. 6

Ah, the annoyance of graffiti. There are times when it's a wonderful artform but other times when it is indeed an annoyance. I very much like the view here - the soft pastels are lovely.

Interesting - the image itself says "calm, peaceful, quite" The technical image looks to have a bit of noise to it.

nice pastels here. i wish the graffiti wasn't there, not sure if it would've been a rules violation to clone it

Be careful with the tone mapping! It can go too far. Still, nice composition and overall color scheme.
