    Hello Luciano,

    What an alluring place, with the colors of the Balearic Islands. I am glad to see the photo garnering the attention that it so rightly deserves. Have a good weekend.

    Merhaba Recep Bey,

    Bu vazolar heralde boyanmayi bekliyor, ama en güzel taraflari bence biçimleri, asli 2400 yillik tarihi olan desenler. Paylastiginize tesekkürler,

    Hello Kasia

    Excellent capture of this wonderful moment. The silhouetted trees and the golden hues makes for a perfect combination. Very good control of the light and a fine composition. Love it:) Thanks for sharing.

    Have a nice WE.

    Hello Subhendu,

    Without the children frolicking at the base of the columns, this would be only an architectural portrait. But it is now a stroll down memory land.

    Salam dear friend, Didi,

    What a superb sunlight-washed shot of the dry stone wall, set against a drystone structure, a grain silo/tool shed. Your note is informative and engaging,

    Hello Rosemary,

    The bronze statue with verdigris patina (my favorite) creates a monochrome photo in the foreground against the rich golden hues of the Cathedral in the background — also in monochrome. It's a well chosen perspective. Your note is first rate, as always.

    A most engaging personal note to accompany the Lilliputian beach huts. It may be at random, and it may still be the ordering by a physicist, but the wavelengths of these colors are from short to long wavelengths.

    Hello Malgo,

    Your essay is thoughtful and engaging, and a highly complementary expression to accompany the well composed shot. I would love to see Lake Baikal in person, and feel like I am just following in your tracks (I am in San Diego, California, on my way to Honolulu and then the interminable crossing to Auckland — first across the equator, then across the International Dateline). Regards and have a good weekend,

    Hello Paul,

    Your wise choice of a vertical format presents the drama of this rugged countryside. Johnny Carson, the great late night television star, would have echoed the title you've chosen for the scene, "I'm not afraid of heights, I'm afraid of widths.

    Beyond anyone else on Trekearth, you give meaning to the spirit and mission of the site... "learning photography through geography, and geography through photography. These arid hills, neatly folded, behind the village landscape represents as much a geological portrait of the East Azerbaijan area as your note about the history of the place. Have a good weekend,

    The presence of the worshiper in this photo is the clue to its success. Without his contemplative expression, this would be just another architectural photo, but it is much more.

    Hello Brian,

    What a dramatic view of the three tall ships. Instead of the modern architecture you have in the background, if you had just a misty river scene (perhaps hard to find on the Thames) this would make and excellent period painting, reminiscent of a Turner.

    Have a good weekend,

    Welcome back Miro,

    You've made your 'return debut' with a dramatic shot of the heavy woods in Auwald. The perfectly composed shot presents a view of the footpath that converges... and disappears into distance, rich in color and depth-of-field. I too have been traveling lately, rejuvenating and tiring times.

    Warm regards and again... welcome back.

    Hello Danos,
    This is a great shot of this lively beach taken from a fine POV. The high angle allows us to see the beach and all of it's natural framing. The shadow in the water creates a nice lead line for the shot. The lighting is fine and the photo has fine color ans sharpness.
