    Hi Ike,
    I have just spotted this lovely bird photo in your gallery. I have never seen anything like it. But quite honestly I never paid too much attention to birds before moving into the house I live in now. We are surrounded by a park and there are so many bird species coming here. Obviously your photo presents a very different climate and different bird species.
    Thanks for sharing it!

    Hi Bev,
    I like TrekEarth as I learn so much about foreign places but of course I cannot afford to travel around the world so pictures from other regions of the country I live currently in are of greatest interest for me. You have definitely made me appetite for a trip to Wales.
    This looks stunning! So beautiful and elegant, lovely architecture and nice location and everything well taken care of. The sunlight makes a great difference I bet and I don't have much luck in this respect. Including today -forecast was great but weather quite disappointing.
    You seem quite lucky here, the blue sky adds a nice touch.
    Excellent work!

    Hi John,
    indeed I remember well your series of photos presenting these channels. I am very impressed with your creativity as the theme seems quite simple and yet every time you manage to present it in a very new style, new composition. Here probably for the first time the barrier which adds a nice motif in the foreground. Great depth of the field!
    Very well done,

    Hi Burak,
    I like very much this picture framed with the autumnal color tones. However I am quite surprised to read that it is Austria - Salzburg as it rather resembles the church in Germany Munich ;)

    Hi Gerrit,
    I really enjoy your reportage which shows such different aspects of this place. Here the lovely architecture of the little church. Quite an elegant square with the monument and well taken care of vegetation. Some fragments of the sky got a bit burned out but one cannot have everything.
    Very well done,

    Hola Maria,
    very impressive this huge art. First time ever I like including the cars in the composition, here they both go well with the colors of the mural but also they allow to feel the huge scale of this painting.
    Very well done!

    Ciao Luciano!
    wow this is a quite impressive interior. Very encouraging to visit Sicily. The golden decorations remind me the interior of St Marcus Cathedral in Venice.
    Beautiful details and a wonderful presentation with well balanced exposition.

    Hi Noel,
    I have lived in Cork for two years so obviously I have been to Blarney Castle. It looks beautiful in your photo however I remember being a bit disappointed may be because they advertise it so much. I thought it will be a unique Irish experience but before or later I have seen so many more interesting or beautiful places in Ireland which were not as popular.
    Nevertheless this picture shows it from a great side. You have included both main tower and the smaller round tower. Nice foreground too. Perfectly straight perspective.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Takero,
    lovely children portrait. I have a three year old daughter and I have to admit it is quite challenging to photograph her, she does not like to pose... may be it will change later. These models here seem to enjoy posing. Great group photo in traditional clothes.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Danos,
    a very atmospheric photograph with the low light adding a lot of charm. I like the multiple layers of the hills with the decreasing intensity. The boat is of course the highlight, a point to focus on.

    The brightly colored bg tile mosaic of red green and blue forms a spectacular backdrop to the 2 people in the front. Good sharpness and saturation with punchy light contrasts and nice repetition of the fg square artworks. Tfs.

    Salut Neyvan,

    The yellow honeycomb colored building at right contrasts well against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the Crucifixion scene at left is appropriately placed in front of the blue and white church at left. The motorbike riders in the front animate the scene. Tfs.

    I like the wide anged, panoramic format. Good color, sharpness and saturation. Nice warm cold color contrasts between the red roofs at right in the village, and the blue sky. The same clumps of green mistletoe can be seen in the Czech Republic. Tfs.

    This image has a bright and sunny atmosphere and lighting different from your other Newfoundland shots. The streaks of remnant snow on the hillsides add a nice graphic element. Good sharpness and saturated colours. Well composed using the rule of thirds. Tfs.

    Hello Ourania,

    Athens is certainly worth a day or 2 and I recall getting a shot of the distant Temple of Olympian Zeus depicted here. Unfortunately it was closed at 8pm. I was hoping to get a shot of its silhouetted columns framing the Acropolis at sunset. Good sharpness and effective tight framing. Tfs.

    A good upward pov on the castle and fort with excellent sharpness and a nice multiple splash of purple added by the flowering trees. The cool blue cyan colours of the sky contrast well against the yellow green vegetation at right. Good colour and saturation. Tfs.

    Fantastic use of a shallow dof with good sharpness on the fg calf and grass. Excellent graphic elements with the brightly lit fg contrasting well against the shadowed bg. We also have annual agricultural shows in Australia but with increasingly overpriced costs rising every year it's been a while since I went. http://www.ekka.com.au/ Tfs.

    Ciao Silvio,

    Wow! Missed this one. Spectacular repetition of the sunflowers and the pp effects give this image the look of a painting. Excellent warm vs cold color contrasts between the blue and yellow hues. Punchy light contrasts and the tower at right makes a fine focal point. Tfs.
