    Hello Gyorgy,

    This is a very good candid shot of the photographer concentrating on his subject. Meanwhile, as photographers ourselves I can't think of anyone who would not feel obligated to see what he is shooting. Of course, it also gives us an opportunity to see what others regard as worthy shooting.

    Warm regards,

    Ciao Luciano,

    Your note is a very good addition to the photo. I imagine they used mainly charcoal to draw the petroglyphs, but do you happen to know how old they are?

    Hello Brenda,

    Your note raised and answered a number of questions for me. The legendary Gimbel's, I wondered why I hadn't heard of it in years. Now I also know the location of the flying bridge that I had seen before but had forgotten about. It's a wonderful note and complementary photo.

    Warm regards,

    Hi dear Bulent

    Is this taken in a bird zoo? I think it is quite rare for these different species birds stay together. Under the bad condition, you coud take them so nicely.

    All the best and have a good day! Takero

    I did not know about Arachova until I saw this excellent package of photo and note. The walls and roofs are maintained perfectly. It's a good study of angles and colors.

    Hello Ike,

    I have been reading Shakespeare's Macbeth and can feel the hostile climate. In my mind's ear, I can hear the sound of that rushing river. Through those thick clouds, you can make out the sun creating a glow. You've captured the atmosphere beautifully.

    Hello Craig,

    Your photograph is a first rate piece of art. The clean lines radiating down from the top left, the presence of the young woman in just the right spot, and even the choice of B&W collaborate to make the photo an absolutely first-rate masterpiece.

    I'm sorry I didn't know that you were in the East Coast. It would have been a pleasure to host you in Washington, DC and in historic Virginia.

    Warm regards,

    Merhaba Murat Bey,

    This photo brings stokes intense nostalgia in my bones. My father, as Org. Kemal Atalay, was the Commander of the First Army several decades ago, and in fact, it was in his watch that the top floor was restored as Florence Nightingale's Hospital. On a summer visit to Istanbul, I watched his retirement ceremony as a "changing of the guard." Then when he passed away in February 2003, I was there for his funeral and then his interment across the Bosphorus. Your note complements the photo effectively.

    Warm regards,

    Dear John,

    In this excellent action shot. you've captured a fleeting instant with sharp focus on the Piper Cup aircraft and a blurred background accentuating the motion. While a university student I was a member of the Air Force Reserve Officer's Training Corps for two years. I was not very good at marching, but I benefited immensely by learning to fly in one and two-engine Cesna aircraft.

    Warm regards,

    Bonjour Serge,

    You've achieved very good depth-of-field by shooting through the flowers and getting the line of historical buildings in Alsace-Lorrain. It's also an area I have never visited. I like the photo very much.

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    This is a lovely monument to past technology a water well dating to Renaissance times, its mechanism on full display, and sitting in the middle of a square near the city center. I like the definition of the brickwork, I imagine still the authentic structure.

    Warm regards,
