    Hello Pilar,

    In this beautifully composed shot, an architectural portrait, you've provided a natural frame, extraordinary light management and depth-of-field. I think it is an ideal candidate for the group theme, City reflections.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Neyvan,

    I photographed this building from various sites in Santiago, but I was old it was the highest building in Chile, and indeed in South America. What is the highest? Wonderful photo in clear crisp autumn day in the Southern Hemisphere.

    Hello Christian,

    The light management is very good in this symmetric composition depicting the interiof of Concoret's Church. Where there is symmetry, we should accentuate it in our compositions. Well done,

    Hello Wolfgang,

    Wave upon wave of mountains, this image is evocative of waves in the sea. To me they also show how light is degraded with distance, as more and more atmosphere intervenes between subject and viewer.

    Bonjour Pierre,

    You've captured the room with excellent light management and sharpness. I like the reflection of a window in the mirror. I wonder how the image would have been somewhat darker, but with increased contrast. If you don't mind, I will do a B&W Tonality workshop on this photo to convey a 19th century atmosphere.

    Regards,

    Hello John,

    Having recently returned from New Zealand's South Island I like the sight of a carpet of sheep of lush green plains. There they speak of the sheep-to-human ratio in numbers as 10:1 (or even 100:1). I don't think such relative ratios exist for sheep and human in Scotland, but the weather certainly appears to be similar. The pastel colors in these sheep would indeed help to identify them easily, and also make them more attractive at markets.

    Regards,

    Hello Brian,

    What a gift to the Trekearth community. I have never seen the details of the face of the Big Ben so clearly. I remember some years ago a murder mystery where the Big Ben was program for some dastardly deed, with the clock mechanism set to trip a detonator. There, it seems the clock's face was also revealed for its detail.

    Hello Pyotr,

    I've seen many photos over the years of the Tatras Mountains. With the peak emerging from the clouds, this is one of the most dramatic photos of all. There is excellent depth-of-field, with the foreground and the distance all in focus.

    Hello Romano,

    I had no idea that you were an archaeologist. The magnificent statue of the boxer, so well preserved, has the richest patina I have seen anywhere. Incidentally, although I am a physicist and artist, I have a deep interest in archaeology, but more from the high tech side, such as mapping out the Pyramids with cosmic radiation.

    Fantastic photo, Romano.
