    Hello Suraj,

    The subject, colors and composition are all very good. I would make the water level (I will do a ws and rotate it counterclockwise 4.)

    Hello Daniel,

    With the distressed and dramatic sky, you've created a spectacular silhouette of the two individuals. The blades of grass are sharp and stand out beautifully against the glow on the horizon.

    Hello Alfons,

    You chose the best possible angle to photograph this Chevrolet Caprice, showing as many facets front, side and upper surfaces. It happens to be a 1968 Model (I owned a '68 Chevrolet Impala). I'm impressed by the preservation or restoration of the 48 year-old car.

    Warm regards from the United States

    Hello Miro,

    It appears that we were in Australia about the same time. We came to Sydney on 12 Feb. and left 15 for Brisbane and a cruise. It's always a pleasure to see through another driver's rear mirror a site so very far and different than mine. If it weren't for a few shrubbery, that this is a desolate section of the planet.

    Hello Ike,

    What superb quality for a mobile phone. Although I have gotten similar quality with my iPhone 6 Plus, I keep thinking I would get better photos with my 2-ton Nikon (frequently I do, sometimes the iPhone works better). More than anything, however, it is the immediate accessibility of a mobile phone, in distinction to heavier cameras, that solves my needs. I imagine, it is the same for you.

    Warm regards, Ike, and happy weekend,

    Hello Ike,

    Here I like the textures and colors of the weathered wall that serves as the "canvas" for this artwork, as much as the artwork itself. One day, I would like to walk around the streets of Tel Aviv with you and see your world with you.

    Hello Alexandre,

    Indeed, "Paradise" or perhaps "Suburb of Paradise." With the lone, unoccupied beach chair, you make this a beckoning scene. Almost forty years ago I visited Haiti but did not make it to the Dominican Republic. The colors of the Caribbean are unique in the world, not even in the South Pacific do you get that milky Turquoise. I think this beauty in the group theme, Paradise on Earth.

    Merhaba Sevgili Mesut,

    From the thumbnail version, I thought perhaps this camel was carrying an extraordinarily heavy load. The unique rock formation is all the more significant because of its long history. You must have had a wonderful time visiting Goreme last week, an amazing area I saw only once, in 1967.

    The crowded view of beached boats is genuinely eye-catching. Moreover, the depth-of-field is excellent, in the foreground and the distance all in focus.

    Hello Paul,

    This is a beauty! I am not surprised that one would see an eye-catching flower arrangement in Belgium (and Holland) the perspective you've chosen shows the originality of the display. Moreover, the exposure is ideal.

    Hello Lars,

    The light following a shower is frequently the most desirable for photography. This is a beauty, revealing the details of the windmill a relative teenager at 106 years of age, although the infants of the technology are the Millennial Giants (e.g. those in Palm Springs, California).

    Hello Stephen,

    I like this image of smoke, fire, and a favorite nut. I have never seen the process of harvesting cashews, although I must admit that the cashews I had in Thailand were far tastier than those I've had in the United States (that is also true of pistachios from Turkey and Iran compared with those of California). These cashews are most likely similar to those in Thailand.

    This is a gorgeous panoramic view of the flowers and fields, but perhaps the most dramatic aspect is the direct capture of the sun without creating a silhouette of the foreground.

    Dear John,

    A colorful carpet of tulips, sorted by color. Sometimes there is so much political correctness. I wonder if anyone will call this "a segregation of tulips by color." It is also a very good demonstration of one point perspective.

    Hello Ray,

    As always, your note is informative. I had no idea that Spain turned over authority to Mexico in 1818, presumably in most of California. As I look at the style of Carmel Mission I see that it looks more modern than most of the other missions. The Quadrangle and bell tower are indeed missing.

    Warm regards,
