    This is sensational, John. I wish I had known about Tantallon Castle, both for visits I've made, and so too for my son and his family, when they toured Scotland last year. The light is spectacular. Your note is first rate, as usual. Please, give my regards to Winifred Sillito, a physicist colleague, who has not been active on Trekearth in several years.

    This is a lovely shot, Kasia, unusually well composed and exposed. There is mysterious atmosphere, created by the woman's total covering... except her hands. Of course, it appears to be a candid shot, as she has not positioned her hands as a model might. The colors and texture came out well.

    Hello Jean Claude,

    At the outset, I apologize in critiquing the beach scene from Cadiz for addressing you as "Angel." I made the correction on that critique. You must know that Angel Cornejo, a resident of Cadiz. I like very much this perspective you chose, demonstrating the best of two-point perspective. I positioned yourself symmetrically at the corner of two walls of the house, with the lines of perspective (orthogonals) trailing off to converge at a pair of vanishing points. The colorful plants, set against white washed walls, and a pair of staircases diverging at 90° is very effective and attractive.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Jean Claude,

    Now this is an inviting scene! The sun, sand and sun worshippers appear with plenty of elbow room in this photo shot on the first day of June. It certainly difference from my visit to Yalta, which was the height of Claustrophobic Experience.

    Warm regards, Jean Claude,

    Dear Malgorzata,

    This magnificent photo totally slipped my attention. Of course, I should start with your photos before I make any trips, and, indeed, in late December 2015-Early January 2016 we will be in (Rio de Janeiro). I want to share with you a fantastic youtube video Repairs on the Christ Redeemor Statue in Rio. I am not a "destination lecturer," but a "Special topics lecturer." I will speak about "Ascent of the West — the Age of Navigators", "the West and the Rest", "Science and Reason — Leonardo and Newton" etc. But I would love to use a few of your slides as well. Can you send me a higher resolution image of half a dozen of your best photos to my email address."

    Warmest regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Brenda,

    When I look at the two sides (at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock) of the oculus I see the lines coming off tangentially, and spiraling out clockwise and counterclockwise. They create an eye catching and very regular pattern. They are evocative of the spirals on a sunflower. But of course the spirals there are logarithmic spirals, and a pair of Fibonacci numbers in their clockwise and counterclockwise patterns (89:55) or (55:34) , whereas here they are barely curved, if at all. I like the angle you chose to break up the symmetry by including the balcony. I like the photo very much.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Jean,

    Well composed shot with high resolution and brilliant colors. Until I spotted the individuals (children?) on the far left I had no idea of the scale. It's a rugged shore to be sure, and somewhat evocative of the eastern coast of Ireland.

    Warm regards,

    Bonjour Jean,

    Now this is a refreshing view in the heat of summer. I like the footprints in the snow, meandering, and heading down the hill. Very good light management, considering the pristine white of the snow and the dark pines in the background.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent
