    Ciao Carlo,

    Splendid light management of the evening shot of Porto Venere. I believe, the great Romantic poets, Keats and Byron I believe met in Porto Venere. Wonderful shot,

    Warm regards,

    Hello Chris

    This is certainly the most eye catching photo I've seen on Trekearth since I returned from New Zealand a few days ago. It appears that you are now ensconced in Romania. The reflections of the trees in the lake are so dramatic.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Andy,

    This is a wonderful portrait of the young woman, bearing an infectious warm smile. However, if you don't mind, I am going to do a very simple workshop on the photo, in order to illustrate a recently discovered principle of composition.

    Christopher Tyler, a British born psychologist practicing in San FranciscoIt, discovered in 1998 that in almost all great single-subject portraits, one eye passes through the vertical bisector of the frame. This is true of Leonardo's few but great portraits, Rembrandt's countless self-portraits, even Picasso's works, and this could be the leading or the trailing eye. Accordingly, I cropped the image a little on the right to get the subject's left eye close to bisector. This is a simple principle that is never taught in art schools, but the greatest of all painters appear to discover the practice independently, and inadvertently. This is a useful principle for photographers to know about. It appears that we focus on one eye. Take a look at "Rembrandt at 400". I wrote about this principle in a book I wrote about Leonardo, "Math and the Mona Lisa."

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Bonjour, Mon Cher ami Philippe,

    As usual you give us a superb autumn view, and as you do sometimes, submit a beautiful poem to accompany it. I just returned from a lengthy trip to the South Pacific, where they are just in Spring (Printemps) and ascending into summer, we are in Autumn and descending into Winter. They do not have the beautiful colors of Fall, but then we do not have their warming weather.

    Warm regards, my friend,

    Hi Piotr.From the mountains to the sea, you are showing us the natural beauty of your country.A very atmospheric shot with a sense of duality between light and shade, plus a rainbow pops in to add to the tug-of-war. Has that man found the end of the rainbow and has put the pot of gold in his bag? Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.

    Hi Malgo. Nic to know that your hearing and eyesight have improved (not that anything was wrong with either) but now you are guaranteed of lasting effectiveness. The colours of the pavilion are a little too gaudy for my taste but it is shown to the best advantage by your POV. Ah, to see the faithful, and one in tears! Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.

    Salam Ali. Wonderful portrait. He looks like a poet, an artist, a modern-day Hafez. Great light management and sharpness. Danos's comment remind me of what a techer in Tabriz said to me- that in East Azerbaijan real Persians are to be found, the others are Greek/ Persian. I found that comment funny because our guide kept saying that the people there don't speak properly and he found it difficult to understand them sometimes.Regards. Klaudio.

    salut Gilles. The first line in your profile page sums up the essence and beauty of this image. In addition the light is evocative and adds vibrancy to the water, houses and the solitary human presence.Great shot. Amicalement. Klaudio.

    Merhaba Ali. Your PP has made the wisps of fog and the reflection look like a supernatural manifestation which contrasts dramatically against the autumn's warm colours.The dark shadows add to the mystery. Selam. Klaudio.

    Hi Costantino. I like the sentiments generated by this photo as one feels the transition in the weather as wind brings clouds which bring rain as the deck seems wet. Yet, the sun is still shining and creates a nice light on the ship's side in contrast to the dark sea. The tilt of the boat makes me feel a if I am on board. Best wishes. Klaudio.

    Hello Ourania,
    This was a well captured moment in the life of... yourself. You were lucky to make this observation. The four persons' postures tell us quite clearly of their carefree attitude at that time. Each one seems to have a body language of her/his own. I like how you captured them from a slightly higher point and how you cropped the photo to make the sea rise like a wall behind them. The red shirt to the left may not have been a gift from above, but it certainly suited the composition perfectly.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Kasia,
    It's a good photo with a very crisp light and fine colours. Maybe if I had been there I could have seen that this mosque is so new, but from this picture I really couldn't tell. Some of the finest churches in Ukraine and Georgia were also brand new but built in a traditional style. As you could imagine I find the two workshops more interesting. They're not necessarily better photos, but you should know by now how much I enjoy watching people's activities in the streets.
    Kind regards,
    Gert
