    Hello Miro,

    It is good to see this image shot on 25 May and posted on 13 June. The colors are splendid, as is the sharpness. It feels as if we are all going back to a time-capsule 166 years ago. The woman's bright outfit, the highlights in her hair, the woodwork, the stonework (in the fireplace) all collaborate to make this a special photo. Incidentally, I just sent you a friend request on Facebook. I am inviting my TE-friends to join a new closed group, National Geographic Friends, but we must be friends on FB.

    Has your son retired from Trekearth?

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Sam,

    Set against a dark wall, and dark marble floor, the young lady is eye-catching, exuding a demure air. I like this portrait very much.

    Bonjour Nicolas,

    This is an absolutely spectacular scene from that Suburb of Paradise, the Swiss Alps. The glow of the sun through the clouds creates a magic feeling to the scene.

    Hi Mike,

    This is a wonderful composition showing the parallel tracks veering, crossing... echoed by the cables suspended to power the cable cars. Serghei is a good friend of mine from TE, and we got together a couple of time in the United States — once in Washington, DC and the other time in Los Angeles. He is gracious and kind.

    Warm regards,

    Hello again Saša,

    The opulent interior of the church is composed simply and with near-symmetry. For me, it is the brilliant red of the carpet that is extremely eye-catching.

    Hello Alexandar,

    The shepherds, sheep, and even the dog are lying low, keeping their centers-of-gravity against the grass. I like such bucolic views like this. Well chosen,

    Dear Gigi,

    Lovely, colorful and sharp photo from Malaga, but featuring the colors of the French and American flags. I wonder if the numbers 7:AM-1-2-15 is the time the boat was launched.

    Hello Jean,

    The royal court appears regal, colorful and in sharp focus. The fabric used in the Queen's dress is magnificent, perhaps too regal for the 15th century.

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    The simple symmetric presentation of the interior of the Cathedral is well chosen. I especially light the bright sunlight filtering through the crack left by the doors slightly open. Excellent note as usual,

    Hello Brenda

    A timely shot for the 4th of July! Having not visited the 9/11 Memorial, I had no idea that there was a mote-like design, with the massive drop separated from the visitors by that low wall around the periphery. That has to be a very long wall circling the fountain, considering the number of names inscribed, only 3-5 lines high.

    Warm regards,

    Hello again Ike,

    I wonder what the graffiti artist wants to convey by making the impish character on the right, cigarette in hand, so colorful while making the robotic creature on the left, tethered by the ankle, knee, and wrist so metallic and monochromatic.

    Hello dear Malgorzata,

    Gert-esque or Rob-esque, the architectural edifice comprised of glass, steel and concrete makes a good picture. I wonder if it would not be somewhat better with the color vibrance reduced.

    The hilltop view of Valnerina attests to how well the structure is preserved, and what an excellent composition, color fidelity, depth-of-field, sharpness... you have achieved.

    The unusual view of the Buddha's seen in silhouette brings together good lighting, good exposure and sharpness. It's also a site I have never visited.

    Greetings Robert,

    From the thumbnail version, I thought this bridge might be the wrought iron bridge at Firth of Fourth, Scotland. It's a very impressive photo, with the run-down structures at the base of the bridge.

    Hello Chris,

    This is an unusual and eye-catching image of the umbrellas creating a canopy. The colors are subdued, rather than garish as one usually sees them, e.g. in Las Vegas. I believe there is a good group theme on umbrellas somewhere on TE, where this would fit in very well. Warm regards, Chris,

    Bonjour Serge,

    I know this spot well, having walked along that sidewalk, and along the beach. The color of the sea is astonishingly beautiful. I was disappointed by the gravelly beach, but then if you wear shoes, it's alright.
