    Hello Rob,

    Fabulous image with the near silhouette of the man standing against a compelling background. I will file it away in that group theme. A Dutch friend who is married to a heart surgeon shared a photo of a heart with all the blood vessels filled with a red plastic reminiscent of this photo.

    I thought for sure that Trekearth had gone off and left us high and dry. No way to get to our photos or to photos posted by friends. I am glad it's back. The site may have been hacked.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hi Piotr

    Going abroad, it's always interesting to discover different habits. The players are fully absorbed by their game, and I like the way they count the points.

    Hi Gert,

    Here I think you celebrated the verticality and the steep grade of the scene. The presence of the people certainly was a wise decision. What is especially successful here is the depth of field. The shrubbery in the foreground is seen with high resolution as are the details of the twin steeples.

    Incidentally, I want to thank you for taking the time to write the email to me regarding the state of affairs in "those" police states we had mentioned. I suspect one or two more should be added to the list of "Corruption perception index."

    Warm regards,

    Hello Abmdsudi,

    I like the composition with a symmetric view of the courtyard and the couple positioned perfectly in the frame. It would have been good to see their feet, but they we would not have seen the full extent of the facade.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Lars,

    The shimmering quality of the reflections adds a special quality to the photo. The color of the ship, of course, creates a special chop mark. You've composed the scene perfectly.

    Bonjour, mon cher ami Philippe,

    The famous Chateau de Nemours, I had heard of it but had not seen any photos before. With the swans swimming lazily in the water, it is compelling composition. The light was ideal to capture the colors and textures of the structure.

    Warm regards,

    Bonjour Clodo,

    Two or three things I must comment about: having the couple in the photo as viewers is essential; they are not elderly. And the screen is a golden rectangle in the proportions 1.0 to 1.618; it has been divided into a square, leaving the rest, "Age Perfect," as a golden rectangle. And, indeed, Helen Mirren, appears ageless and beautiful.

    Warm regards,
    Bulent

    Hello Ike,

    You captured an excellent subject for the group theme, "City Reflections." Sometimes an iPhone photo is as successful as a dedicated expensive camera and far more accessible.

    Hello Bev,

    I like the symmetric perspective you've chosen. The boat-masts create an arch of swords evocative of a military wedding ceremony. Moreover, the frame is entirely professional.

    Dear John,

    This is a very impressive Chinese Park and your note puts it into proper perspective. Although the light is mostly from behind and on the left, you did a very good job of managing the light.

    Hi Bulent

    the of centered lady is essential in the picture to fool our eyes, we are sure the stairs are not horizontal, so... Is it a painting or a special building. We have to surf on internet to get the answer!

    Hello Gyorgy,

    This is an excellent study in reflections and refractions. It works especially well in black and white, and also because of the subject, the Palace of Culture and Science.

    Incidentally, in the "optical illusion" embodied in my last post, the staircase is laid out horizontally, with each floor actually a room. The woman in the photo (my wife) simply walked into room 3-4.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    I am impressed by the light management with the colors and resolution presented to their best effect. There is a confusing optical illusion here, however. Are we looking sideways or vertically?

    Warm regards,
