    Hello Mariusz,

    The great German physicist Werner Heisenberg once said, "Never underestimate how much pleasure it gives a man to see what he already knows." Well, I was the same spot on 2-3 occasions over the years. It's a busy, colorful, and engaging scene.

    Hello Serghei,

    This is one of the most interesting photos I've seen in a very long time. You captured the young man on the railroad tracks taking photos of (???) but has a cheerful glee on his face. It's a sharp photo and a most engaging scene. I see, that you took the photo in late April when we were sailing back from Tokyo.

    Congratulations on your landmark 1500th photo.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Takero san,

    I have been absent from Trekearth, and what a pleasure it is to return to find your collection of photos from Indonesia. I know you lived there for many years. It must have been a stroll down nostalgia lane as we say in English. In this photo you've used a large aperture that gives high sharpness is the foreground and a blurred image in the background.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Craig,

    The structure of the photo is somewhat evocative of the banister on a cruise ship. You've achieved excellent light management. The accompanying note, as with most of your photos, is excellent.

    Hello Brenda,

    This is a good candidate for the group theme, "Compelling Backdrops." It invites the viewer to read the graffiti artist's creation. You can also see her technique with masking tape to get her message busy but orderly.

    Hello Lars,

    After visiting Vancouver three times (1978 and twice in 2012) it has become one of my favorite cities. I see that you were there just 9 days ago. It's clean, cosmopolitan, and modern. I liked Stanley Park, but I liked Capilano Park even more. Did you get a chance to see the hanging bridge?

    Warm regards,

    Merhaba sevgili Mesut,

    I love this shot of the camels set against a background of the fairy chimneys. To help the camel herders, I would take a short ride. But I would rather do a hot air balloon ride.

    Dear John,

    This a beautiful, crowded street, what I like to see in urban photography. The depth-of-field is surpassing, allowing the details of the people and the architecture to appear with razor sharpness. Well done, as usual.

    Bonjour Serge,

    You've posted many photos during my most recent absence from Trekearth. The canal scene from Alsace is especially beautiful. The light management and composition collaborate to make the photo first class.

    Hello Gert,

    During the most recent of my periodic absences from TE you've posted a number of beauties. I especially like the multifaceted series of murals. In my grade book, the father and daughter's presence raises it from 8.5/10 to a solid 10/10. I would like to make it the most recent acquisition to group theme, Pictures at an Exhibition II.

    Ciao Luciano,

    Just 11 days ago you were in Georgia. Are you back in Italy yet? This beauty complements the photo I submitted from Luray Caverns in the Shenandoah Valley of the Eastern United States. The temperature in my caves was closer to 10 C (50 F), perfect to keep cheese and wine, just the elements you need to sit down at a table enjoying the beauty of nature.

    Hello Ike,

    Your farewell photo of Edinburgh is a masterpiece. It shows the acropolis area of the city, the wonderful architecture, and perfect management of light. During my lengthy absence from Trekearth you've added many good photos, but this one immediately gained my admiration.

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    During my most recent disappearing act from TE, you've added many excellent photos. This one appeals to me with its sense of nostalgia, old black locomotives spewing steam. What is clear is the vantage point you selected to show the narrow gauge of the tracks. Beautiful composition, colors, and resolution.

    Mon cher ami, Philippe,

    During my last periodic disappearing act from TE, you've added many beautiful photos to your collection. This photo appeals to me deeply because of (1) the geometric elements, (2) the "symphony of colors" aspect, (3) the overall composition... I give it a 10/10. Warm regards,

    The photograph and note collaborate to make this a very good addition to TE. The presence of the three women adds immensely to the compositional aspect and to the human aspect of the picture.

    I have been an absentee member of Trekearth lately. But I just made it back to find this beauty and example of cityscape photography. The quality of the photo with a smartphone is unusually good, indistinguishable from a photo taken with a dedicated camera.
