    Ciao caro Carlo, It was a good choice to show the beautiful flowers and not so many tourists. And the castle is really fantastic, so well preserved. Excellent composition.

    Merhaba Murat Bey,

    The blue stained glass, on the right — naftalin in color — adds majestic color to the scene. The simple symmetric perspective is well chosen.

    I apologize sincerely in not being able to see you in your recent visit to Washington, DC. The day that we put aside to come up from Virginia, we turned back after two hours and only 35 miles up from Fredericksburg. With the temporary closure of the high occupancy lanes (HOV) on Rt. 95, we were sitting in a veritable parking lot. I hope your visit was enjoyable.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Dear John,

    A warm and welcoming scene in Antwerp. Your note complements the scene very effectively. I like the dramatic splashes of color created by the red lampshades.

    Have a good weekend, John,

    Dear Lars,

    This is a classic shot of the mighty falls, the view from the Canadian side, with the edge of a rainbow peeking in mist. The expansive view you present truly does justice to the falls. Once in a rare while, the place freezes up. Take a look at these photos of a frozen Niagara Falls.

    Have a good weekend,

    Hi, Lucky guy, to be so close to this beautiful elegant woman. She looks very pretty and has a pleasant smile. And I have no idea that the final event was held in Warsaw. Well, it is not something that I am specially interested.

    Bonjour mon cher ami, Philippe,

    The interior shots you've photographed of the period furnishings are fabulous. You've presented the details of the furniture, the hexagonal tiling and the wall paper. I feel as if I am there seeing the scene in person.

    Have a good weekend, Philippe.

    Hi Klaudio,

    You've produced a classic shot of the majestic bird, the details as sharp as obsidian. I imagine a photograph like this calls for close coordination with your driver... gently inching up to the subject. I wonder if these creatures are indigenous to Australia?

    Have a good weekend, Klaudio,

    Cześć Mariusz,

    Dobrze mi znany widok. To właśnie jest misja TE- zachcic innych do odwiedzenia miejsc ciekawych, a mało popularnych. Na TE - bo jednak sporo ludzi tam si kręci. Ja nie wiedziałam o tym ZOO, że takie dobre, ale i tak bym nie poszła.
    Super pocztówka, wspaniała perspektywa, symetria, może jeszcze inni sie zachęcą do odwiedzenia tego uroczego miasteczka.

    Hi Ali

    The wideness of the area is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of this section of the desert. The light is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

    Howdy Ray,

    This is a lovely photograph of a real Station Wagon - or, as we call them here in Britain - an Estate Car. Modern versions of these vehicles just seem to have some wood (or even plastic wood look-alike) stuck on the sides of them, but this is an original station wagon (or estate car) in which the wood and panels are actually part of the structure of the vehicle.

    This one is in beautiful condition, complete with its open "suicide" door and the gleam off the coachwork and the woodwork is fabulous.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    P.S. I've read that you have to be quite careful driving these sorts of cars through barriers in the likes of car parks because there have been a few instances when the barrier (sensing a large metal object) opened - but came down too early as it didn't "see" any metal in the rear part of the car, so causing damage.

    Hello Gigi,

    You have given us a delightful glimpse of the South of France. The lavender and sunflowers add vibrant rows of colours to the pebbly ground.
    You have composed this very well.
    The detailed sunflowers grab the f/g, whilst the rows lead us succinctly into the b/g, creating an amazing sense of depth!

    Have a great w/e,

    Hello Malgo,

    It does surprise me that you are trying to have a quiet time. Rushing from place to place always seems to be high on your agenda.

    I wish you well on this quiet retreat.
    Sit back and enjoy it, for it is very romantic!
    Perhaps a glass of bubbly each, toasting each other, remembering happy times.

    The lake looks peaceful with only the merest ripples to disturb its surface! I like your positioning of the golden yacht, with its shadows and reflections, as it faces out into the water, an effective guide.

    Have a great holiday,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Agnes,

    Don't chide yourself, it is nearly symmetrical and I don't think it would have made a much greater impact than this version!
    I didn't know there were stupas in Europe but there must be more if this is the largest!
    What you have shown us is a beautiful, white building, symbolising peace. Its welcoming steps are irresistible, whilst the waving flags add to the sense of festival and enjoyment.
    White can be a difficult 'colour' to photograph in sunlight but you have coped amazingly well.

    Have a lovely w/e,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Roland,

    This is another cracker of a shot!
    It is perfectly composed with the building's angle right on the thirds line!
    The colours are amazing as the windows change tones, reflecting each other and the sky!
    I was trying to work out what they reminded me of; it was a beaded necklace, with matching bracelet!
