    Bonjour Nicolas

    The frigid scene shows life suspended below the ice and cold air. This is a very dramatic photo, beautifully composed and exposed.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Jorge,

    The extreme sharpness of your main subjects — the young girl herding her water buffalos — set against a blurred background makes this a genuinely dramatic shot. You really had to go into the hinterland to catch this rural scene.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Gerrit,

    This is a spectacular view of what is probably the most naturally beautiful city in the world. I too recently returned from Brazil, visiting Fortaleza, Recife, Salvador Bahia, Buzios, Rio de Janeiro and Foç do Iguasu. Of course, the overwhelming highlights were Rio and Iguazu. My friends drove us briefly to some of the favelas, but it sounds like you had more than an exposure to the favelas.

    Warm regards,

    Salam Didi,

    The bucolic scene of the forrest and canal are made all the more dramatic by the sunlight illuminating the leaves and parts of the water, while the rest is backlit and in deep shadow. It's a beautiful autumn scene you captured on the the Mauves Trail.

    Have a good weekend,

    Ciao Silvio,

    You have captured a scene that exudes mystique and mystery. The thick fog enshrouding the valleys presents the village in a dream-like atmosphere. This is a superb shot.

    Hello Ana,

    With the sun at a relatively low angle, the long shadows makes this a dramatic scene. The fortification is preserved beautifully, and you've selected a vantage point that has the shadows leading one's eyes right to the edifice. Excellent photo in every way.

    Warm regards,

    I like the idea. A little different from the usual, we need to take a closer look to understand it. The composition and the textures are great!

    Another great one to your series! You got great shots from there. I like the way you framed them side by side and the long shadows. Good textures also. B&w seems perfect!

    It's a place full of life and the exposure is very good. I like the composition and the colourful reflections. It's a pity, but the only thing I know there is the airport, that is really good.

    Hello Terez,

    I've been enjoying your photos from Fort Smith, Arkansas, after seeing your photos for years of classical archaeological sites and artwork. The note is just as comprehensive. The 19th-century furnishings are beautifully exposed, despite the backlighting. I was in Little Rock in 2011 to give a talk at the Arkansas Art Center, but did not make it to Fort Smith.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Gert,

    Fantastic shot of the book stall. I think the presence of the woman reaching to the upper shelves makes the picture superior to the other photo you had contemplated posting. The viewer is immediately pulled into examining the titles, mostly engineering, mathematics, medicine... by the shelf.

    Warm regards,
