    Hello Stephane,

    Another superb shot from the Iceland. Even in July when you shot the photo, I can imagine the chill in the air.

    Hello Michelle,

    Such colorful flowers against the silhouette of the old palace. I was there once, but could not remember the name until I saw your excellent note.

    Warm regards to you and your family. I've been very bad in writing blogs for the National Geographic, but I did write one about Robin Williams's suicide.

    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,

    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,
