    Hello John,

    The composition, colors and resolution, as well as the depth of field, are all excellent in this unusual shot of Tower Bridge. I remember the bridge when it was green, and then when it was red, white and blue. I'm not that impressed by the decisions of the original committee, the interim committee, nor the final committee. Something subdued would be good, but especially not the Victorian green that the British cannot get away from (as we watch the matches at Wimbledon taking place at every turn is that green). Maybe an Italian or Spanish guild of artists should be consulted. I enjoyed reading your note very much,

    Hello Daniel,

    This, I see, was shot six days after the one of the waterfalls, and long after we had departed from Reykjavik. The exposure is ideal, revealing the sharpness, depth of field and light management in general. I had no idea that the power plant itself was lit up like a colossal light bulb. My son and his family will be visiting later this month. I will suggest to him to peruse your photos of Iceland before he embarks on his trip.

    Warm regards,

    Merhaba Murat Bey,

    I can identify with the experience of not keeping batteries charged, even though I carry an extra batter at all times. I have uttered invectives reflexively (in Turkish when I am in the company of Americans, and in English in the company of Turks). After all, "frustration is having no one else to blame." But this shot with a smartphone is nothing short of sensational. Are you using an iPhone or a Android Galaxy, and which model. My panoramic shot of Queenstown, New Zealand was shot with an iPhone V.

    Warm regards,

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    Roads, footpaths and bridges all serve to lead the eye, they are inviting devices for composition. You had very good light, contrasts in light and darkness, and you achieved excellent depth of field and depth of field.

    Hello Klaudio,

    In this image evocative of a 17th century Dutch painting, you handle the light just a Dutch Master would have, and populated the frame with people, in the manner of Jan Steen. Your photos from June 20 are sensational. It is remarkable that shooting at 1/20 second shutter speed, you have so little distortion. The only sense of motion is in the face of the child on the left, and the hand bag of the woman just to the right. The faces in the crowd are genuinely reminiscent of the Dutch Master's handling of such scenes.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Ray,

    This is an angle of Half-Dome that I have not seen before. It's a sharp photo showing colors and textures. A few years ago, my son then in medical school traveled to San Francisco for a meeting. Then he took a day to visit Yosemite, and to climb it (from the easy side). He told me that when he reached the top, he decided to take a picture from the ledge. He lay down on his stomach and camera in hand, inching his way to the ledge. Suddenly a knee came over, then the rest of the body. A Japanese climber and his three friends had just scaled the vertical side. The climber's first words, "Do you have a cigarette." My son did not have a cigarette, but he did ask the man to take the photo for him.

    Regards, and a belated 4th of July to you,

    Hello Noel,

    You've clearly done justice to this very interesting statue. When a statue is designed to be "transparent," I think it makes sense to shoot it in silhouette. The statue and the sun comprise a pair of focal points.
