Merhaba Murat Bey,
The Austin Healy remains one of my favorite sports cars of all time. The lines of the car hang together well, and there is a certain unique character the designers imbued it with. This is an excellent angle to photograph it, or to draw it, as I used to do as a teenager.

You captured the soul of the young lady, exuding presence of dignity. You also placed her well, with one eye (her right) very close to the vertical centerline. This principle, discovered by English-American psychologist, Christopher Tyler, was unconsciously practiced by the greatest portrait painters in history — including, Leonardo and Rembrandt.

An excellent symmetric composition in this architectural portrait. What is surprising is the number and the size of each window. Heating the building would have been expensive, but what wonderful light from the windows. Your note is wonderfully informative as usual.

You have a first rate imagination... spotting this scene and choosing an appropriate name. I will always remembert his photo of the balconies in Mahmutlar. Regards, Serghei, tomorrow morning we head LA, Pasadena and San Diego, to start a new trip.

Charlie Chaplin, virtually transparent in this statue, provides as an eye catching image for the Harland and Wolff Shipbuilding Yard. Your note is fabulous, informative and entertaining.

This is a very beautiful sunburst effect, creating a pyramid of light. The presence of the jogger is very effective to create a small amount of symmetry-breaking, and making the composition much more interesting.
Warm regards and have a good weekend. Next week we are starting a new adventure. I will post some photos along the way, or upon my return.
Incidentally, at the end of my note for "Fish out of water," I added:
After reading my good friend, John Maenhout's note, I thought I would repost the photo. But then, rather than reposting it, I decided to make the two corrections he suggested and post the photo to workshop. He had suggested, #1 making the sea absolutely level, and #2 reducing the pixelation. John was absolutely right. Please, see the the Altered Image and compare side by side."

Merhaba Burak Bey,
I never cease to be astounded by the drama of the Grand Canyon The muddy river, perhaps the Colorado, has been scouring the mile deep canyon for only ten million years, but it has carved the land to a billion years past. The presence of the helicopter is a bonus.
