    Hi Takero, please make your note more informative. Such close-ups need a very sufficient note...

    Hi Takero,

    No "unreasonable reason" here so I am sure it will stay... ;)

    Lovely composition with really beautiful colours indeed, I just love the leaves of the red acer, it symbolizes Japan for me, a country I would love to visit once in my life.

    Hi Michael,
    It is a funny "rage" that knitting rage, you see it everywhere nowadays!
    But I may have knitted some warm underwear first... ;)

    Hello Bev,
    Having little time to critique but this photo had a forum thread and I had to read it... ;)

    In fact I think Frank had his finger just on the right spot: we would like to see the castle but the trees are in the way...
    I think we should be glad to get such critiques instead of the " backslapping" we are used to get nowadays, that is also why you thought his critique was a bit " unexpected",because we are over loaded with compliments day in day out and they are not always sincere...

    It is true, this one is a "nice" photo but not as good as many other in your gallery.

    I hope I didn't upset you with my "tirade" but I felt like I had to... ;)

    Friendly greetings from Holland,

    Bonjour Alain,

    Ces pays là il faudrait y être à toutes les saisons! Nous y étions l'an dernier au printemps mais il faudra qu'on y retourne à l'automne, et puis l'hiver...

    Merci pour cette image "pleine de solitude" et de cette atmosphère magique qui annonce le froid. Les bleus glacials ne sont réchauffés que par la petite touche orangée, merveilleux!

    Celle-ci, en couleur pourtant, me parle aussi... Même si la lumière est crue et les ombres peu présentes, l'image est tellement nette et "crispy"que tous les détails apparaissent...
    Très bien fait!

    Hello Fotka,

    Wel... It could have been Scotland! Such a moody atmosphere thank to the dark moutains, the foggy clouds and the brown & yellow grass.

    I like this photo because it makes me feel on the high counties of Great-Britain or Scandinavia again... and I love it!

    Thank youy & warmest regards - Viviane

    Bonjour Gilles,

    Cette photo a fait "tilt!" - Regardez celle-ci et puis on a choisi le N&B...

    Vous avez raison, photographier le jeu des ombres et lumières était inévitable... :)

    Bonsoir Richard,

    Such an atmospheric picture, I was wondering if the shadow was created by the low sun or a bright moon...
    Thank you for your photos, it makes us even more impatient to be there.

    Bonjour Chantal et Bienvenue sur TrekEarth!

    Lorsque vous postez une nouvelle photo vous devez remplir correctement la case "ville" c.-à-d. que vous devez inscrire Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer et non Stes Maries ceci pour éviter les confusions et simplifier les recherches...

    Merci de bien vouloir corriger l'erreur.

    Hi Edward,

    I liked your two latest photos with the "quiz" aspect, I would like to see more of those...
    Very well done and informative!

    Don't you think It would be a nice idea to ask TE members to participle to such a kind of challenging quiz? ;)

    Bonjour Richard,

    I don't think Iulian has ever been there... I don't remember such Swedish landscapes as we we never went that high north but I remember Norwegian and Scottish highland looking precisely like here. Foggy, misty, magical moody feeling... Yes, I can imagine very well that atmosphere. And I think you succeeded very well in translating it.

    Thank you for responding to my previous critique, we would be very honoured to meet you if it is possible. I'll send a message about our planning.

    Bonjour Peter,

    I was looking at the photos concerning Lappland as we plan a travel through Sweden and going to Norway via Kiruna and Narvik next May 2015...
    Your photo shows that the landscape there are just like I imagined but... We will have more day than night at the time I guess... :)

    After a while looking at this picture I knew I remembered having seen the same before and I am afraid I must recognize my guild being the one who deactivated - not censured- your previous photo because of an elaborate frame. I precisely remember it looked like a sandy structured frame with not straight lines and not according the TOS rule about frames:

    Frames must be plain and straight edged (simple drop shadow is allowed)
    Cannot contain gradients, textures, blurring or beveling, but may contain the photo's title and/or the member's name.


    Again, I am very sorry you lost two photos but I couldn't do otherwise...

    Welcome on TE Richard!

    Thank you for such a lovely shot. It is really a great composition, it looks like the fox stood on the very right place at the very best moment and... Turned his eyes to you... Wonderful!

    We are going to travel there, not far from your place, next May 2015, I can't wait to see the nature in that part of Sweden.

    Bonjour Serge,

    Il y a qqchose de bizarre dans l'orthographe des noms... On écrit Chenonceau - sans X - pour le nom du château mais le nom du village est Chenonceaux - avec X
    Merci de corriger... :)

    Trouvé sur le Net:

    La différence d'orthographe s'expliquerait, selon des sources à confirmer, par une dame Dupin qui, étant propriétaire du château au moment de la Révolution française aurait voulu, par cette suppression du « x » final, marquer sa différence. Depuis lors, le château est majoritairement orthographié sans le « x » final, à la différence de la commune, qui porte invariablement cette lettre finale.

    Bien amicalement - Viviane

    Edit 09-11-2014: J 'ai changé le nom du village et ajouté le X
