    Hello Rob,

    Carol Jean just returned from NYC but missed seeing the Whitney because it was closed. I like the young mother (pointing) and child as a hyper-realistic creation. Forget the older woman and dog. Stamps in the 1970's cost about 11 cents to mail for a first class domestic letter. I'm sure such details are taken into account.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Bev,

    This would indeed by an exciting place to party... and sleep, except for the fear of rolling down a spiral staircase. Around 1823 the French physicist/engineer Augustin-Jean Fresnel developed the "Fresnel Lens" to collimate a beam of light especially useful for lighthouses. I wonder if the Burnham-on-Sea lighthouse ever incorporated the lens into its structure.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Jorge,

    The hanging branches are key to putting this image into perspective. There is a tranquil quality achieved in the well-composed photo. I like it very much.

    Hello Daniel,
    you structured your composition superbly, all the bold features of the scene are well placed and an attractive perspective draws us into the frame. The repetition, the textures and the colours are very enjoyable, the scene has a pleasing mood and looks inviting. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Bulent,
    the performer's face is expressive and holds my attention as I try to figure out what feelings it could be conveying. I like the bold lighting of the scene and how it has vivified the colours and created a sense of drama. The colours are absolutely marvellous, I like how the warm tones make up the setting of the story. Congratulations and thank you!

    I like very much the excellent defintion you got on all those luminous dots, there's a fascinating crystallic texture that dominates the scene. I also like the sense of depth and the blend of cold and warm tones. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Murat,
    an interesting candid shot, it's not only the main heroine but the other people too that make the scene look lively and intriguing. I wonder if the last customers were the people walking away into the background. I like the luminous colours all over the frame and think that the shadows add a special graphic touch. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Lars,
    an excellent contribution to the global topic of these days, your picture is a perfect illustration to your note and, as much as we admire the details of the elegant architecture, there must be lots of darkness and mystery in the interior of the building. The light and the colours are pleasing, the sky adds dynamism and it's great that you captured the flag flying. Congratulations and thank you!

    Hello Stephen,
    I like very much the bright light in the lower part, it creates some attractive contrasts and sweetens the atmosphere. The vertical frame is filled with details and has an interesting perspective. The details and the symbolisms are abundant, the colours wonderful. The overall impression is vibrant and fascinating. Congratulations and thank you!

    Ciao Carlo,
    ottima osservazione ed inquadratura sapiente per fare il massimo del grafismo e del minimalismo della scena. Mi piace l' equilibrio che hai ottenuto in una composizione non simmetrica e la maniera confidente ed effettiva in cui hai gestito i contrasti. Complimenti e grazie!

    I like this clear, picturesque view into the centre of the town, you framed the scenery in a great way, it looks comprehensive and displays a pleasant rhythm. I also like the vivid, bright colours and the liveliness brought in by the people walking across the foreground. Congratulations and thank you!

    Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
    ο ανοιχτόχρωμος τοίχος στ' αριστερά φέρνει πολύ φως μέσα στο σκηνικό αλλά αναδεικνύει τις λεπτομέρειες και τα χρώματα που είναι κοντά του και ζωηρεύει την ατμόσφαιρα. Μου αρέσει πολύ το βάθος και οι υφές που πέτυχες, η "γυάλινη" επιφάνεια του νερού και τα μάλλον ψυχρά χρώματα με ορισμένες θερμές αντιθέσεις. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
    Να είσαι καλά, καλό Σαββατοκύριακο,
    Ουρανία

    Hello dear Takero,
    I like how the blurry figure of the adult provides reassurance and reference but also allows the sharp portrait of the little one to stand out. The little monkey seems to be an interesting character, his hands add to the story and the glint in his eyes is superb. There's a lovely contrast between warm and cold tones. Congratulations and thank you! I hope that the weather will improve soon and that you'll be able to visit the park as you wish.
    All the best, have a great weekend,

    Hello Will,
    I like very much the absence of clear scale and the way the grephic patterns of the foliage fill the frame. Your composition looks dynamic in a vertical frame, the trunk offers a solid perspective. I like the definition of the leaves and how the light filtres through them and we get an impression of intimacy. Congratulations and thank you!

    Bonjour Serge,
    the architecture is very interesting in the way it's reaching higher and higher and I like how you focused at the top and illustrated the culminating point in such a clear, detailed and graphic way. The towers set an intriguing sense of scale and the golden figure looks lonely and graceful at the top. I also like the substance of the contrasting colours. Congratulations and thank you!
