    Hi Sayeed,

    In answer to your reply I wandered that doorway out, trying to escape... Suddenly I saw the cat and my hands shook a little bit. Yours too. I think everybody would fear the Jinns when lost in the labyrinth of Fes...
    I really admire the way you write English and you are a true storyteller! Here again the note and the photo are very complementary and made it worth visiting further your gallery, thank you!

    Hi Silvio,

    I love the spectacular colours! Nice idea to include the photographer on the right place in the composition. The only point which I think is disturbing is that little green part in the left upper corner, I wish you had framed tighter...

    Hello Sayeed,

    What amazed me most here is how your note brought me in the atmosphere of Fes. Suddenly I felt lost too, entering your image, looking down in this small doorway... Really weird sensation!
    There are many who think notes are not needed but I simply loved this one, thank you for that moment.

    Hi Daniel,

    I think this is a quite impressive photo, all the blue tones from the water, from the sky and the clouds, and also from the dusk give a very enigmatic and rather cold atmosphere but the vapors remind us of all the hot power in the soils... And of course that golden light from the greenhouse makes that photo very attractive.
    Definitely a photo which makes me wanting to know more about Iceland, thank you for sharing...

    Hi Paul,

    I think indeed you must be there to fully appreciate this view. I guess that geological phenomena is due to the volcanic eruptions in that particular region. It made me remember of the (mostly vertical) basaltic columns and formations we can find in the Auvergne region in France and (vertical formation) The Giants'Cause in Ireland. For a moment you can imagine the hot lava solidifying in the sea...

    Very nice photo giving a good idea of what you can expect. A great postcard I would say and definitely a postcard I would buy if I was there... ;)

    Hi Irtiza,

    Welcome on TrekEarth!
    Your composition is great, the image is very sharp and nicely framed too, but can you tell why the background is green?
    Thank you & greetings,

    Hi Frank,

    Excellent note! I like the way you explained WHY you took the photo and it makes a difference at the way we are looking at it...
    Your framing is nicely tight around the group involved and I like the Summer feeling, glass of rosé, parasol, warm yellow background AND her smile! :)

    Thank you for your visit & kind regards,

    Viviane

    Hi Paula,

    I have lived many years on Schouwen-Duivenland and I have always found this church fascinating. Your photo is a very attractive B&W version.

    * I just posted a colour version of this church on the Gallery too... ;)

    Hi Ely,

    A quote is not enough. Can you please add a note that tells something on where and why you thought this shot is suitable for TrekEarth?

    Hi Takero,

    It is such a lovely image but please add a sufficient note about the subject here, the iris. If not it would be a common object w/o suitable note and would be removed for the same reason as earlier close shots of common object have been removed.

    Thank you & greetings,

    Hi Christina,

    A perfect composition mostly due to a perfect point of view. I would have liked a bit softer contrast but it works though... Also a pity of the pair of legs at the left up corner, could you have cropped them w/o losing the balance?

    Anyway I had to open the thumbnail and I am glad I did... Very nice.

    Hi Lisa,

    The thumbnail was appealing and I had to open it... Very nice detail, I had to figure out the scale because it could be a twig or a whole tree! ;)
    I also enjoyed Craig's critique... :)
    Can you tell in your note what makes the water that pink? Merci!
