    Hello Klaudio,

    Now this is one of my favorite genres, indeed lets put it into either
    • Pictures at an Exhibition I or
    • Pictures at an Exhibition II, whichever has some available space. The Hermitage Exhibition in Melbourne had to wet your appetite, to visit the real thing in St. Petersburg.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Pavle,

    The vertical format is by far the best for the scene, the "Crkva Sveta Petk" ("Orthodox Chuch of Saint Petka"). It's a sharp and colorful scene with excellent depth of field. The religious painting of Virgin Mary above the door is sharp and rich in colors.

    Hello Maria,

    There is a timeless atmosphere in this photo. I like the composition very much. But if you don't mind, I will try a b&w conversion with a new application called "Tonality" for MacIntosh. Please, see the workshop to get an idea of a photographic plate at the beginning of the 20th century.

    Hello dear Serghei,

    Your photo of the lake in Perm represents a first class nature photo, with very little development (houses,stores, etc.) nearby. It's bucolic scene, very attractive and inviting.

    Have a good weekend, what is left of it.

    Hello Neyvan,

    How nice to have you as a neighbor late on Friday evening. This is a spectacular photo of the Southern Alps. Patagonia remains very high on my list of places to see. The jagged peaks rising higher than anywhere else on earth, except the Himalayas must still have numerous peaks that have never been conquered. The clouds hanging around the peak adds fantastic atmosphere to the photo.

    Warm regards,

    Witaj Aleksander,

    A superb shot just past blue hour, and I see that it took a shutter speed of 1/15 second and a very large aperture of f/4.5. The moon is the star, but the random arrangement of lit windows complements the moon.

    Warm regards, and have a good weekend.

    Hello Pavle,

    No photograph can inspired me more to go to the Farmer's Market in historic Virginia (where I live) to purchase some pears. Indeed, it is a collection of three photos, beautifully composed and presented.

    Hello Malgorzata,

    Excellent photo, and even better commentary on the state of affairs. I have been working on my new book, "No Ordinary Genius," focusing on five transformative geniuses — Leonardo, Shakespeare, Newton, Beethoven and Einstein. None of the 26 Nobel Laureates I've met qualify (they are all "ordinary geniuses," except for two perhaps, Dirac and Feynman). Genius has its limitations, stupidity and ignorance has no limitations whatsoever. Do you remember the two colossal Buddha statues in Bamyan, Afghanistan?

    Warm regards,

    Dear John,

    This is a very beautiful architectural portrait of the city hall in Kortrijk. It is so well preserved despite its age, and continued evolution through two centuries. Your photo demonstrates the best of two point perspective. The absence of crowds and cars gives it a early 20th century atmosphere,

    Warm regards,

    I have always found appealing Lion's head door knockers. This is a well exposed, albeit simple photo, showing how well the knocker and the dark wood finish on the door complement each other.
