    Hi Craig!
    Once again you're showing a good shot with really nice architecture and the woman sweeping. I like the details of the arches and that huge pot. This is the kind of scenes I like a lot, discovering the old cities is just wonderful. I'm wishing to return there soon:)!

    Hi Gert!

    Hi Jean!
    So much history here! I like the old city in foreground and the new one in background. The sky is perfect! A very good pov and it was a good idea to include the man.

    Dear John,

    Just a few days ago I critiqued your photo of the four well-dressed people riding in an elegant four-horse carriage. From almost the same angle you've photographed this group, less formally dressed, riding in a two-horse carriage. The two photos make a wonderful combination together.

    Warm regards, good friend,

    Hello Karolina,

    Alfama is one of my favorite areas in Lisbon, and you have chosen a superb vantage point to show its characteristic feature, its verticality. You are right, it is not an easy place for the elderly to live, but they are motivated to keep in in good shape for as long as possible. Close to where you took this shot, I caught a glimpse of several young people, with their arms outstretched leaning against a wall. The police were frisking them for drugs.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Chris,

    You had better weather, and a much better vantage point than we had in shooting St. Stephen, where our tour bus stopped immediately in line with the causeway... for all of 5 minutes. The note is also very useful.

    Hello dear Serghei,

    This was shot on 10 April 2014, just two days before you came down to Pasadena for my lecture. It is a magical scene, the Classic World flourishing in the New World in San Francisco.The composition, colors and resolution are all first class. I like the disparate activity, especially the two women acting up (posing) for a photo by their friend with the camera.

    Warm regards, Serghei, if it is possible, we will meet in December. Oh, yes, and congratulations on the 9th year Anniversary of sharing your photos on Trekearth.

    Hi Luciano!
    Better than Varadero, I believe. I'm not fond of beaches, I prefer to go around and discover the country but this seems a very nice place and without tourists, which is great:))! Beautiful colours!

    Hello Maria,

    A very interesting and well composed photo. Your note puts the scene into context. Next January we will visit Iguazu Falls, but from the Brazilian side. Unfortunately, we will not get the opportunity to visit Argentina.

    Hello Didi,

    What a peaceful shot of the stone bridge supported by two dozen arches. The resolution and depth of field are extraordinary, I imagine assisted by the three separate photos that you stitched seamlessly, la Didi

    Hello Daniel,

    A vertical format is ideal for this image, it accentuates the verticality of the scene. Moreover, on the large high resolution screen I am viewing the photo (70 cm iMac) it is as sharp as an obsidian dagger. The colors and resolution are revealed, especially you have an overcast sky, eliminating stark contrasts in light and shadows.

    Warm regards,

    The imposing castle would have been a formidable challenge to invaders, rising from a peak. This is a splendid shot with the lovely Italian trees.

    Hello Ourania,

    I don't like shot from high flying planes, but I love photos like this, evocative of topographic maps. Along with your informative note, this is an excellent package. The light was ideal, yielding colors and textures that are vivid. Well done.

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    You've presented the semicircular Romanesque arch with extraordinary detail. The different colored columns suggests that they have replaced the ones on the right during a restoration.
    Wonderful note, accompanying the photo.

    Hello Christian,

    You had beautiful sunlight to photograph the old church. I wonder if they had originally designed it as a symmetric structure, like the Cathedral in Reykjavik.
