    Hello Takero,
    It's nice to see these lovely creatures again. What a fantastic experience to meet them along the path. But what happens to them after the "season"?
    Kind regards,

    Hello Neyvan,
    You used the white flowers well to balance the white peaks of the mountains. In between the water has beautiful reflections of the sky and the green hillside. I think the water was too cold for swimming, but the view of the small beach is just as beautiful as anywhere in Greece or the Caribbean.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    It's hard to take an original photo of the Eiffel tower, so to my mind you chose the right photo for the main upload, it's just a great pity that the vendor wasn't there and no customers as well. You should have done like Craig and waited a half hour for the perfect shot. ;-)
    Kind regards,

    Hello Bev,
    This is a wonderful view of the old bridge. Especially the stones covered with moss look fantastic, but I am upset to see that the bridge doesn't look adapted for wheelchairs. How could that be allowed these days? ;-) The small windows on the building also look amazing and tell us of circumstances in older days. The green stones lead me across the composition and you have used the tree and its branches well. But I think you made a mistake with the link. It only directs me to your own photos. They are nice enough, but I think you intended something else.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Christiane,
    This is a very nicely composed photo. You have used the bench and the overhanging branches cleverly to frame the beautiful view of the calm lake and the distant hills. The reflections are amazing and the light and colours are also exceptionally good.

    You found quite a good angle for this photo of the winding trail. The staircase creates a nice zigzag pattern animated by people, including a lady partly in red.

    Hello Jorge,
    This is another marvellous archeological structure looking exciting and inspiring, but once again it's the inclusion of people that makes this a more interesting photo. We can see that the weather was getting really nasty and maybe you even had a few drops of rain on your lens.

    The overgrown road cuts nicely through the photo and it is beautifully lined with trees and the old wall on the right side. There is a fantastic light and the colours are very attractive.

    Hello Will,
    It's nice to see you back here with another conversation. This discussion looks more animated than most of your similar photos. Could it be the liqueur? Possibly the older man's steady hand reveals a calmer temperament than the other man's blurred hand. We will never know. I always like these quickly captured moments in the street anyway.
    Best wishes,

    Hello Cristiane,

    A clean and minimalist composition. The high resolution of the branches in the foreground is essential, I believe, for this photo. Warm regards, Cristiane,

    Hello Danos,
    The beautiful birds are very nicely standing on a line, but six of them were too shy to show their heads for your camera. Even then, they gave you a fine foreground for this nicely balanced photo.

    Hello Neyvan,

    The excellent depth-of-field allows us to see the details of the wild growth in the foreground, the variegated blues and greens in the water, and the details of the mountains on the opposite shore. Well done.

    Hello Bev,

    I prefer this angle beyond the others I've seen, especially the depth-of-field you've achieved. Moreover, with the subdued light, you don't have the stark contrast in light and shadows.

    Hello Brenda,

    It's a touching image and with your note, it creates a very good work of photojournalism. Of course, as "Fake News" it might be regarded as a creation. It was a brilliant trick to include the traffic lights in the lower corner as a gauge providing scale.

    Hello Kasia,

    The young woman has a contagious smile. How could one not respond with a smile? The composition superb. When I was young, I remember a series on television about New York City called the "Naked City." It always started with the refrain, "There are seven million stories." Looking at this girl with her engaging demeanour I could rephrase the that TV-show's opening, "There are seven billion stories."

    Hello Jorge,

    A very good view of the entrance to the Honeycomb Tomb. I did not know about the Brazilian King Pedro II visiting Schliemann there. From the photo it is hard to tell how immense that tomb really is, even with the people walking in front of the entrance. An unusual sight is the rain. Just 10 months ago I was there also and found that in the interior my iPhone gave me better results than my big camera.

    Warm regards,

    Hi Will
    at 50mm focal length, you were fairly close to these two men, its not like you used a 200 or 300 mm focal length.

    and you're right, the hand gestures and close personal eye contact make the scene what it is. and they have no idea you were capturing them, did they find out later? fun shot, good capture of the human experience. cheers

    Hello Kari,
    This looks like great fun and it probably is, but cross country skiing is a lot more quiet and environmentally friendly. But in the photo we don't hear the noise and can just enjoy the fine tall trees and the sun seeping through the branches. It's a very good exposure and a beautiful view of so much clean snow.
    Best wishes,

    Hello Will,

    It's always a pleasure to see recent posts from you. This is a lovely B&W work of art, the young man in the photo is ideally placed (almost exactly 0.618 parts measured from the right) and grabs one's eye. The note is detailed and complements the wonderful photo.

    Dear Mesut,

    This photo belongs in a fine art history book. You've captured the timeless beauty of the mozaics that date back two millennia. I see that you shot the photo almost 11 years ago. I imagine, if we are careful, and lucky, we can still travel to Gaziantep.

    Sevgiler,
