    Ciao Carlo,

    Splendid light management of the evening shot of Porto Venere. I believe, the great Romantic poets, Keats and Byron I believe met in Porto Venere. Wonderful shot,

    Warm regards,

    Hello Chris

    This is certainly the most eye catching photo I've seen on Trekearth since I returned from New Zealand a few days ago. It appears that you are now ensconced in Romania. The reflections of the trees in the lake are so dramatic.

    Warm regards,

    Hi Chris
    A fine compo with great atmosphere given by the cold colour tones.
    I like the big space given to the reflection...

    Hello Andy,

    This is a wonderful portrait of the young woman, bearing an infectious warm smile. However, if you don't mind, I am going to do a very simple workshop on the photo, in order to illustrate a recently discovered principle of composition.

    Christopher Tyler, a British born psychologist practicing in San FranciscoIt, discovered in 1998 that in almost all great single-subject portraits, one eye passes through the vertical bisector of the frame. This is true of Leonardo's few but great portraits, Rembrandt's countless self-portraits, even Picasso's works, and this could be the leading or the trailing eye. Accordingly, I cropped the image a little on the right to get the subject's left eye close to bisector. This is a simple principle that is never taught in art schools, but the greatest of all painters appear to discover the practice independently, and inadvertently. This is a useful principle for photographers to know about. It appears that we focus on one eye. Take a look at "Rembrandt at 400". I wrote about this principle in a book I wrote about Leonardo, "Math and the Mona Lisa."

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Bonjour, Mon Cher ami Philippe,

    As usual you give us a superb autumn view, and as you do sometimes, submit a beautiful poem to accompany it. I just returned from a lengthy trip to the South Pacific, where they are just in Spring (Printemps) and ascending into summer, we are in Autumn and descending into Winter. They do not have the beautiful colors of Fall, but then we do not have their warming weather.

    Warm regards, my friend,

    Ciao Piotr.

    An amazing compo, very powerful visually. You did a good arrangement of the lines of the landscape and the different levels of light, that make the profile of the climbers stand out.

    It is pleasant to see a pretty bucolic image of Spring in these grey and rainy days. The colours are very attractive and the compo is splendid.

    Hello Ike.

    This is a subject that I seldom tried, but despite offering great potential, I suspect that it is prone to cluttered and uninteresting compos, so I admire much when I see one well succeeded like this one. The light, the smooth tones and the abstract forms rendered by the reflections make it very attractive.

    Regards, José.

    Les grattes-ciel cadre bien le parc. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du parc. Le ciel nuageux ne nuit pas au rendu des couleurs. Bonne soirée.

    Another very nice shot! I like this composition with the fishing nets and the boats in foreground and still letting us see the town in background. Very nice light also!
