    Hello Craig,

    Thank you very much for your interesting note, I learn something new everyday on TE.
    A pleasant combination between architecture and artwork, this cares for a nice contrast too.
    Very well composition, nice presentation too.
    Nice done, TFS.

    Merhaba Engin,

    A lovely daily life picture from America, a pity of the white sky, but this is not the mistake of the photographer.
    The weather was not good, but the people and red carpet with the palm trees make your picture very attractive.
    Very well composition, nice presentation too.
    Nice done, TFS.

    Best regards,
    John.

    Dag Rob,

    Eeb gedurfde architectuur met al de balcons in een ronde vorm.
    Deze met een degeliojke afscherming doen me denken aan grote vogelkooien.
    Maar uw foto is perfect genomen zeer helder en scherp.
    Goed foto werk bedankt.

    Groeten uit Vlaanderen,
    John.

    Beste Lars,

    Wat jammer dat u de auto geen zetje heeft gegeven, want uw foto zou mogen in mijn woonplaats hangen.
    Het is een postkaart maar zou ook kunnen gebruikt worden als een poster.
    Zo Hollands an so mooi dat ik deze neem als favoriet.
    Heel mooi foto werk, bedankt.

    Groeten uit Vlaanderen,
    John

    Hi Rob
    yup, I recognized these almost immediately!
    its downtown Chicago right away :)

    its fun to move the screen up and down very quickly to see the graphic nature of them even more.

    and its fun too, to see the way people decorate and set up their patios. I wonder how much it is to live here! Expensive! fun shot, the final result is excellent.
    cheers

    Hi Gy
    gotta like this one, again its different from what we usually see from the gallery pages we see on TE.

    for obvious reasons the moving train makes the shot, the sense of movement is great. Another key part is having the foot of the woman firmly planted on the ground...thats very cool.
    cheers

    Hi Krzysztof
    all I have to say is wow!
    this is quite the town hall, it has to be the most sophisticated and elegant and Gothic that I have ever seen.
    the sheer size of it is outstanding and quite overwhelming too. its an easy 10 out of 10 for me on this one!
    beauty!

    Hi Kik
    I love lighthouses! So obviously I couldn't pass up on this shot in your gallery.

    and to know its only 25 feet tall is pretty interesting too, when you think of a lighthouse you think of it being very tall, not short.

    and the blue and white is a funky combination as well.
    love the subject and view, looks great.
    cheers

    Hi Serghei
    Glad I read your note, I had no idea Liverpool had such a large African and Chinese community, guess we learn something new everyday.

    you know why I like this scene, because its nice to see the exact city layout from an every day scene. This isn't a touristy type of photo, its a real life shot with locals.

    excellent shot from all sides.
    cheers

    Hi Lars
    I always enjoy your local scenes, the Netherlands is a country I've never been to, so there's alot to learn from where I stand.

    Recently I watched on TV how these Mills work with the large corkscrew device - I forget the exact name of it right now, but its cool how they move the water UPstream.

    the photo turned out really well considering the lighting isn't the best, the sky is a bit strong and blueish-white.
    but still very attractive, your shot is well suited for a Calendar, and there's nothing wrong with that.
    see you around

    Hi John
    we've seen many shots of this Cathedral but I gotta say I've never seen this pov before.

    and man, you couldn't have chosen a better day, you certainly got lucky here didn't you! looks to be an almost summery day.

    and to be honest, I've never seen a photo of the dome so close up before, same goes for the columns.
    this is almost like a backdoor alley shot, something totally out of the norm.

    its well lit from front to back, nothing to complain about there. Too bad the lighting at this exact precise moment was a bit off, but what can you honestly do about that?
    looks great John, sweet shot
    cheers

    Hi Will
    hmm...if I had to pick either of these two bikes to ride, I think I'd ask for a third choice haha

    gotta say though, the illuminated bike is pretty cool in the nighttime.

    something different for us to view on TE, and whats wrong with that? fun shot.

    PS
    I wouldn't worry about the infra red thing because I don't think anyone cares! I bet I could write a note full of Fbombs and swear words, and the owners of the site would just pass it on by. The only people who care about TE are us the members. Lets hope TE finds a way to turn it around.

    Hi Ney
    gotta take another look at this one, must have been amazing views from that ship, why go back inside when it looks like this!

    It actually reminds me of alot of the scenery in and around Vancouver, I feel home :)
    wonderful slim panoramic style to maximize the visual.
    beauty!

    Hi Serge
    whats not to like about this one? very funky and very odd, we dont' see shots like this often, we need more of these here on TE.

    that pale blue colour is so well contrasted with all the whites surrounding it. sweet post, quite unusual.

    talk about your winter wonderland!
    sometimes staying inside because of the snowstorm has its advantages right? look at what happened for you, you got yourself a beautiful day with beautiful lighting in the fg.
    great to see the blue sky for contrast too.
    wonderful photo my friend

    Hi Benny
    how could I not like this one from your gallery? looking at your gallery page this one stood out because we don't often see city scenes captured in this manner.
    the scene has an old time look and feel to it, cool light fixture too. enjoy your day

    Hi Costantino
    couldn't help but take a closer look at this one.
    I like that we can see the long angular line separating the water and the land, that helps the photo visually for sure.
    and that blue color is outstanding.
    beautiful light and exposure from top to bottom. wonderful.

    I knew this was a great shot because you took it with the super wide angle lens haha....gotta love that lens.
    and yeah, the lighting may not have been the best at this exact moment, but who cares. we see a powerful stance, and the richness of the building really comes across well. awesome post

    Hi Gert
    as a Canadian, this is very foreign to me...riding bikes to work or riding as much as the Dutch do, its very odd. Canada is the 2nd largest country in the world, and getting from point A to point B almost ALWAYS includes a motor vehicle.
    I guess its just what you're used to family wise growing up.

    this wrong turn for you ended up with a cool experience and a cool photo. Doesn't matter if I like bike riding or not, this is a fun and interesting shot. very cultural too!
