    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,

    Belle découverte loin des sentiers battus, apparemment on est à la frontière entre 2 phénomènes géologiques: les ocres bruns/orange et puis les pierres grises ou noires. L'eau de la mer a érodé tous les blocs tombés pour en faire des galets arrondis.

    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 Recep

    A fine view of one of my favourite crops! The Autumn colour and the sun just kissing the hilltop make this a very beguiling image and the converging perspective lines add dynamism. That conical mountain on the right is an important compositional element as well. Lovely.

    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,

    You were highly creative in selecting one of the large ornamental vases to frame a photo of the second vase. The steps leads the eyes right at the subject.

    Merhaba Murat Bey,

    The bird is indeed seeking an appetizer, main course, and a dessert... but are you sure this is a gull? The one thing I recently learned about birds is that what I thought were the knees turn out to be the ankles. Everything below that joint is part of the foot.

    The still waters of the beach offer an effective backdrop for the image of the bird.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Bev,

    I like this simple photo for the subject, the neat and clean lines of the tram and the architecture. I imagine this is a pedestrians-only arcade, with the wet pavement adding atmosphere. The travel agency in the background advertises a most welcome scene presumably from the Mediterranean.

    Warm regards,

    I'm afraid you are right, the man is "talking at "the seated woman (a relative? wife?). Her expression is priceless. Very good lighting allowing the sharp image with excellent depth-of-field.

    A charming little street, made somewhat mysterious by the night and the sodium lighting. Shining cobbles lead the way to what looks like a welcoming bar. No tripod? A handy wall maybe...

    I reckon you did the right thing with your b/w conversion: it emphasizes shape, form and contrast. The gallery looks pretty solid to me: maybe we can call it "not fade away"...
