    Dear Danos,

    The two windmills are nicely shown off here in their natural surroundings and light; informative note as well.

    Hi Jean,

    I love the perspective you have chosen to present this small waterfall; the graceful movement of the water is nicely captured in slow exposure, forming silky movements of the water.

    A less common perspective of the Grand Canyon; nevertheless it is very refreshing and interesting with your framing of the branches and clouds!

    Hi Craig,

    I love your photos of Varanasi, a place I have never visited. And I do agree with you on the 'smells'. I was in Ninh Binh recently with my daughter, and she kept telling me she could not understand why I chose to go to this countryside. In the morning I would take a walk among the rice fields and farms; there were ducks swimming in the pongs as well as lotus flowers - it was fun to stop and watch the frolics of the ducks, etc. But I guess she would never understand.

    Your composition with your chosen POV makes Varanasi even more fascinating with the diminishing horizon due to the haze/early morning mist. And I understand when you say that the view makes you breathless as you sit there. I have savoured moment like this too.

    Lovely moment, lovely shot.

    Wonderful sunset for a winter shot. Your chosen perspective allows the sun rays to focus on the right point, with some reflections on the driveway. Excellent composition !

    Dear Abmdsudi,

    Another perfect portrait - the pose is excellent as is the details. I do envy your portrait shots - they always look as if your subjects were posing for a studio shot; and I always found it difficult to ask people that I found interesting to pose for shots - maybe I was not persuasive enough ! :)

    Dear Ricardo,

    I always love trees presented in this POV, but never managed to get my shots so impressive. The arrangement of the tree trunks, and the clouds in against the blue sky really enhances the whole composition. Superb work !

    Hi Carlo,

    This is such a great sunset shot; I love the way the blueness of the sky is not overwhelmed by the orangish tinge from the sun, and how it is reflected on the shores. Really a wonderful moment!

    What a wonderful illumination - captured with excellent sharpness and light control. Not easy to take such shots when there are huge crowds, but you have certainly managed to keep them 'controlled' at a nice level !

    Dear Saber,

    At school, when asked to draw a house, some kids would draw and colour something like this. They can come up with interesting little details like the ladder, windows etc. This composition reminds me of that; I like it for the many little details, and the way the blue accents stand out from the white and earthly tones. Interesting composition !

    TFS & Happy New Year to you,
