    Hello Alexandre,

    Clear, crisp shot, is the cliff on the sea or inland? Although you have a more recent photo on Trekearth, this one caught my eye immediately. The crescent and star comprise the Turkish flag. I wonder if the individuals carving on the cliff had a subtle message in mind?

    Between 19 December 2015 and 3 January 2016, I will be on a cruise of the Crystal Symphony, visiting Brazil. I will be serving as a Special Topics Lecturer). I am very enthusiastic about the prospect of seeing your magnificent country.

    Warm regards,

    Bonjour Pierre,

    This is a clean, minimalist image of a highly ornate chair. The colors and resolution are excellent. I wonder when the chair and banner actually date from, 18th Century, 19th Century...?

    Witaj Maciej,

    Your first picture with the lock on the real old manner.
    The farm of my parents was also the locks on the same way.
    The second picture is also very nice to look at, but a little bit more simple.
    Two wonderful pictures
    Excellent composition good presentation.
    Very well done, TFS.

    Have a nice long weekend,

    Hello Malgorzata,

    I must free up room in my supersaturated collection of favorites (100) to put this beauty in there. Absolutely fantastic! The colorful pedestrian adds scale and brilliant color to a superb shot.

    Hello Michelle,

    The beach is pristine and so placid, very much like the beaches in the islands of the Andaman Sea. On my 27" iMac, you cannot imagine how sharp and beautiful this photo appears. I think we should hang it in the group theme Paradise on Earth.

    Warm regards, Michelle,

    Hello Michelle,

    A nice and clean photo reflecting the pristine Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok. Except for the puzzling woman in bare feet, there is no one in sight. In 2012 we made a pitstop there, flying from New Delhi to Phuket, and then a few days later, flying back to New Delhi. It's good to see you back at TE. I want to know about your other photos.

    Warm regards, and have a good weekend,

    Dear Malgorzata,

    You are absolutely right. I don't remember seeing any other shots of the interior of the Duomo in Siena. The inlaid marble characterizing Italian religious buildings in the late Medieval and early Renaissance is the best in the world, mathematical mosaics at their best. You must have had a wonderful time in Tuscany on this last trip. I assume you are back in Warsaw by notw.

    Warmest regards,

    Hello Vasilis,

    This is an excellent aerial view, shot with ideal light. It is well composed and perfectly exposed. The irst time I visited Navplion, I climbed up the 999 steps to the citadel. My son who was with me was in training (he was a world class rower) and he sprinted up the stairs, I barely made it up. In subsequent trips I took tour buses or taxis to get to the top.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Howard,

    We were at the same spot exactly five months before you, and saw this extraordinary sight in rain and wind also. I did not know about it raining exactly 50% of the time, but I have seen some breath taking TE photos on clear days.

    Hello dear Constantino,

    I can never get enough sunset photos from the shores of the Aegean. As long as the rim of the Aegean has been occupied, people have been enjoying these sunsets. I wonder what that reflection is from?

    Hello dear Constantino,

    You have so many fine photos from the rim of the magnificent Aegean that it is hard to decide which one to critique. So, I will start with this image of a cat framed between a column and a plinth, set against the backdrop of a setting sun in Volos. The composition and light management are excellent.

    Hello Bev,

    I always like to see images of stately English homes. I had not known of Biddulph Grange and but its gorgeous gardens. Thanks to this very fine photo and equally fine note, I've learned something. Years ago, they published the Royal AA travel book, replete with descriptions and maps (in the United States, that is of course the "Triple-A"). On weekends I frequently traveled around the UK and created my ink sketches with the AA travel book in hand. Take a look at the short slide show (6-seconds for each slide) on "The Architectural Portraits", then click on Rooms 1 and 2 to see sites in the UK.

    Warm regards, Bev,
