Hello dear Constantino,
A very appropriate name, "Captain Dog," for this photo of the dingy coming into the port in Samos. I've never visited the island, but I've viewed it from Miletus on the Turkish Coast. The colors are vivid and the resolution excellent. I like the note very much also.
Warm regards, Constantino,

This is one of the best architectural portraits I've seen from Iran. The symmetric depiction of the 14th century building, its exquisite mosaics and tiles, the colors, and the sharpness all collaborate to make this a first rate photo. The note is a special bonus. I've learned a great deal. The word "Cami" (pronounced "Jami" in Turkish, describes a mosque). Are the words "Jāmeh Mosque" a redundancy, like "Mosque Mosque?"

This is one of the finest photos in your gallery, among the finest photos on Trekearth. The shimmering light in the lower area adds a special effect, but it is the clarity of the silhouettes of the trees, and the glow of light in the mist and in the distance that makes this photo so special. Warm regards,

I had never seen a photo of the famous radio telescope Jodrell Bank before. It is indeed massive, and historically significant — first to have discovered radio waves from the Andromeda Galaxy, pulsars, and Einstein's gravitational lens effect. Artistically, it is a very good photo with reflections and refractions. The presence of visitors at its base provides scale. Warm regards,

Sometimes you can get much better detailed photos than one the sunlight is directly on the subject, creating harsh shadows. I think you've done very well with the exposure here, and certainly extremely well in the composition.

I like very much the colors and textures in this photo, as well as the low point of view you've chosen. Whoever constructed the two cabinets (or one, depending on your point of view) was clever in slicing the barrel right down the middle vertcally.
