    Hello Brenda,

    With close friends living at 86th Street and Second Avenue, for several years now I've seen construction on the subway. So now, it has reached 96th Street. Will it stretch very much farther? Along the platform on the right side, is that the ghostly view of a train passing by?

    Wonderful shot, Brenda.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Ourania,

    A fleeting pitstop for the ferry, I've seen this sight many times, and enjoyed it each time. There are always the beckoning ruins of the timeless civilizations: enthusiasm if you are just disembarking or the memories of what you've recently seen as you are boarding. Excellent, slice of daily life scene on an August day in the South Aegean. Thanks for taking us along,

    Regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Benny,

    It's a great shot, the well-illuminated, flag-decorated building serving as the backdrop to the statue seen almost in silhouette. You've managed to place the statue at roughly 62% from the left (as you must know, the golden ratio is 0.618) most agreeable to the greatest artists. On my screen, the frame has a width of 29 cm, and the statue's left eye is at 17.9 cm. Divide 29.0 cm by 17.9 cm to get the result.

    The note is highly informative.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Bonjour Jean Claude,

    I like this shot of the cable car, and from the cable car, showing a panoramic view Koblenz. It's possible to get a bird's eye view of the rivers, the junction, with the actual cables serving to establish a focal point.

    Hello dear Gert,
    This one from Indıa is also a photographic "gem". The two cows in the foreground adds a wonderfull taste to your compo.

    Hello Daniel,

    The shallow balconies, if you can call them that, are reminiscent of some French style architecture in New Orleans, Louisiana. What is unusual here are the colors. The combination is highly complementary.

    Hello Craig,

    Thanks for alerting me to the newest edition of Blarney Caste that you've posted. Using a fisheye lens you've emphasized the height of the structure. it's an effective shot. With the tiny windows that can be used as arrow slits, the place is imposing and probably quite impenetrable.

    Hello Stephen,

    As I've said in the past, selecting the edge of a building as a focal point, as you've done on the right, you create an excellent example of two-point perspective. The building looks like it might date back to the early 19th century.

    Warm regards,
