    Hello Bev,

    Your highly engaging note puts the scene into photographic and historic perspective. I hadn't heard of Wycoller until I read your note. I'm surprised that the slab has not been replaced by a wider and safer bridge, perhaps with bannisters, but then it remains quaint in this bucolic setting. Have a good weekend, and

    Warm regards,

    Ciao Cristina,

    Your black and white photos have an atmosphere of the old English film Ilford — sharp, high contrast, and possessing surpassing depth-of-field. Well done.

    Bonjour Serge,

    This is a veritable stage set, perhaps a miniature village. A colorful and very tidy little square i Eguischeim. A beautiful photo indeed,

    Hello Kasia,

    This is an exquisite view of the Karakoram with surpassing depth-of-field. The stars appear like brilliant diamonds, with the dramatic highlight created by the Milky Way. I'm surprised this is not a time exposure of several seconds, instead of only 1/21 sec.

    Witaj Piotr,

    This expansive view of the Austrian Alps should be in a special gallery of photos. Rugged, varied, sharp, and colorful. It's a beautifully composed shot with surpassing depth-of-field.

    Hello Barbara,

    I have seen photos of the Tatra Mountains before, and this beautiful picture confirms how rugged and attractive they are. They are so much higher than I would expect in central Europe.

    Hello Gert,

    I agree with your choice, the stroller looking up at the heroic Communist era statue in distinction to the woman, oblivious to the statue and the cat, oblivious to the building. Graffiti. What is your sense of the people's reaction to the separation of the Czech Republic from Slovakia?

    Hello Klaudio,

    With a rich assortment of photos to critique, I choose the one with the Australian national colors. The colors, depth of field and the composition are all surpassing in quality. Incidentally, your new profile photo with the falcon/eagle is fabulous.

    Hello Luciano,

    Fantastic shot of the Skogafoss, with the people giving scale and human presence to the massive waterfalls. This has to be a classic, Luciano. I will share it with my son and his family who last year spent a week in Iceland.

    You had a superb vantage point to take this photograph with the majestic Cathedral of Ouro Preto on the hilltop and a field terra cotta roofs. The light was sensational for the photo.

    A perfectly composed and eye-catching image of the woman deep in contemplation and enjoying her coffee. I imagine it is a common sight in Columbia, but also it the rest of the world.

    Hello Clodo,

    I had seen this photo when you first posted it but then lost track of it. It's a well-composed portrait of a man with real character. With that impish smile and the outfit he is wearing, he must be a hit with the ladies.

    Warm regards, and have a good weekend,

    Hello Alexandre,

    I see that Ouro Preto is a laid back town, at least on this weekday. The brilliantly sunlit cobblestone street makes an eye-catching composition. The man strolling along the narrow sidewalk is essential for the composition.
