    Hello Abmdsudi,

    This is one of the most eye-catching photos I've seen recently on Trekearth. The dark interior of the teahouse illuminated only existing light is certainly the best way to go with such a scene. Along with a good note, this takes the prize.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Ana,

    I like the composition with the goats eyeing the cross. Now, I understand you followed the path, but did you walk the 5-day path?

    Have a good weekend,

    Merhaba Murat Bey,

    I like the nostalgic note that accompanies your photo. Given a choice of patisseries all over the world, I would go for an Istanbul pastahane any day. So you were there in late May, just three months ago.

    Hello Rob,

    I like this busy composition of variegated colors and frames — horizontal, vertical, oblique — framing the Manhattan Skyline, and especially the Empire State Building.

    Hei Gert

    En velkomponert og vakker gatescene fra Gamla Stan. Forstår godt at dette er ditt favorittstrøk i vakre Stockholm. Jeg kjenner meg godt igjen i beskrivelsen av strøk som på 50- og 60-tallet skulle saneres/jevnes med jorden, vi har eksempler her i byen også. Også i dette Stockholm-bildet er det den varme okerfargen som er dominerende. Vakkert:)

    Hei Gert

    Jeg liker godt ideen din her. Du har gjort en fin jobb med å beskjære bildet og har fjernet uryddige elementer for å skape en fornuftig helhet. Også hva farger angår er det en fin balanse. Komposisjonsmessig liker jeg bildet meget godt. Problemet med slike skip er ofte at det, grunnet sikkerhetsforanstaltninger, kan være vanskelig å komme nær nok til å få slike bilder, men det har du åpenbart klart her. Veldig bra!

    Hello Rob

    I remember well this lovely building from my visit in this city last year. I don`t think I have a picture of it as good as this one, unfortunately. A crisp and clear close-up of the upper part of the building. Yes, the relations to the famous Chrysler building in NYC seems obvious. Lovely shot:) TFS.

    In my opinion this is a fabulous shot. You focus here only on the power pylons and precludes anything but the sky in the background. Fine graphical elements. Very well done:) TFS.

    Hello Silvio,

    Your photograph is a powerful reminder of the catastrophic earthquake that took its toll. I understand over 290 people perished in the earthquake.

    Hello Noel,

    The splash of colors against a lush green Irish landscape, the ruins of medieval buildings as a backdrop... this is a wonderfully eye-catching shot. I thought for a moment that you were running backward while focusing on the phalanx of runners. Your note is engaging, but in America, these men might be considered on the slim side.

    Hello Craig,

    A vertical format works well here, accentuating the verticality of the scene. I can imagine how daunting a task it would have been to lay siege here, Macbeth ordering his troops to charge ahead. Excellent shot.

    Hello Bev,

    The countryside is selectively bathed in sunlight, suggesting a giant brush at work. It's a beautiful shot.

    As for the slope, is that 4:1 or 1:4. The former corresponds to 75° and the latter to 14°.

    Hello Chris,

    This is a spectacular capture of the light and colors of Thessaloniki's harbor. Moreover, like a weather report, you've posted the photo the day you took it, revealing the local weather. The city is where my grandfather, and his buddy Ataturk, were both born in 1881. I visited Ataturk's home in 2006, and also the mound grave of Philip of Macedon. The Turkish name for the city Selanik.

    Warm regards,

    What a classic scene, with the small chapel in the foreground the rolling valleys and hills, and in the distant the magnificent mountain. The yellow flowers add highlight color to the overwhelmingly lush green scene.
