    Hi Chris,
    I see you have very fast answered my question :)
    Great light and colors. Pity about the construction but it still looks quite impressive. Nice elements in the foreground.
    Fantastic reportage, taken while risking your life.

    Hi Chris,
    I have seen on FB even more your photos, it looks like you visited even more pyramids. Did you go to see this one in Saqqara as well?
    I like very much the idea and illustration for it that a perfection requires time.
    Great colors here. Also quite attractive is the solitude away from tourists and sellers. Nice surface of the structure.
    Beautiful postcard like presentation, exactly as I like it.
    Have a great Satudray,

    Hola Luis,
    I have seen another photo from Trogir today taken by Daniel.
    It really seems like a beautiful town. I am really impressed by how much you have managed to see in Croatia -from the north to the south.
    I would need two trips to do it all.
    Very charming corner well spotted here. Nice architectural motifs decorated by the "washing day".
    Excellent work,

    Hi Rob,
    this river cruise was really fruitful!
    You have photographs from all over the town which you took sitting peacefully on a chair in the boat!
    I really have to remember that.
    Yes the Chrysler building is certainly one of the most characteristic on Manhattan. Great framing here with other skyscrapers. Since we see no ground here at appears so high, well it is actually quite high...
    Excellent work!

    Hi Angel,
    lovely square -I like the white architecture all around. It seems to be quite elegant.
    The tables look very inviting, I would love to sit down there for a lunch. In March already you have more sun than we have in May... That is something I envy you even more.
    Beautiful capture, very well seen and taken.
    Have a great weekend,

    Hi Fabiano,
    wow this is beautiful indeed. This is exactly the type of photo I would try to make there. The monument adds an interesting foreground. You had a fantastic sky as well -so lovely decorated with charming clouds.
    I have been to Milan twice but without camera. I suppose I have to get back there again.
    The cathedral is spectacular.
    Very well done,
    Have a great weekend,

    Hi John,
    St. Paul's is beautiful indeed. I remember one movie in which action at certain point moved from London to Washington and in the exact spot where there was St. Paul's dome -they have positioned Capitol Building. It looked almost as if the Capitol was built based on the cathedral, but it may be a coincidence.
    Very original framing here on both sides with similar modern buildings. The two ladies add some life and interest too.
    Sky has been burned a bit but he burned area is not that significant.
    Excellent work!!!

    Have a great weekend,

    Hi Costantino,
    beautiful view. The promenade appears like a nice place for a walk, at the very centre lovely church. Ladies seem to be enjoying the view. Pity that you didn't get closer the girls it will look more attractive but I suppose I am also careful with photographing young girls...
    Great idea with the partial desaturation, nice way to focus somebody's attention on one subject.
    Very well done!!
    Have a great weekend,

    Hi Craig,
    I love postcards as you well know, so this is the view which attracted me first.
    I don't recall seeing the Chicago city scape from this angle. Beautiful!
    Almost blue hour. My guess is that you have stayed there a bit longer to capture the scene with all city lights on and a bit darker sky?
    Nevertheless it is a very impressive spot. The little waterfall makes a lovely foreground and we can already see the lights turned into stars (F14).
    Extraordinary evening mood.
    Yes the problems with sharpness as well as other problems exist here and are no longer being addressed. I got used to them too. It feels like at certain moment TE will collapse and the owners will not even notice. So pity.
    If I win a lottery tonight I will try to buy TE from IB :)
    Have a great weekend,

    Czesc Barbara,
    to naprawde niesamowite miejsce. Oczywiscie ten widok z piramida podobal mi sie bardziej ale tutaj dobrze widac skale, rozmach tego miejsca.
    Ciekawe ze tak dawno temu ludzie budowali miasta I tak niewiele po nich pozostalo. Nam teraz wydaje sie ze nasza kultura jest niezniszczalna. Co bedzie z naszym swiatem za pareset lat?

    Hi Danos,
    this is a view which is so typical for California :)
    Nice capture, you are right a person walking in the middle adds a sense of scale and some action too.
    Beautiful place, very well presented.

    Hi Dale,
    this is a brilliant composition.
    The castle itself is ok but it is HOW you have showed it, what makes this a beautiful photograph.
    The tree branch makes a nice curve and it seems to follow the diagonal hill. It nicely covers uniform sky which would be boring without this decoration. Even though the day was not offering you any good light -the final effect is stunning with extraordinary mood.
    Excellent work,

    Bonjour Serge,
    this is a huge gate indeed! And the presence of a lady in front of it adds a lovely touch since it allows us to imagine the scale of this structure.
    You photographed it on a great weather day with nice light and attractive resulting colors.
    Very well done!

    Hi Saber,
    Spectacular photo.
    I like very much the perfectly round shape of the sun, which is so difficult to get. Around it you have also star shaped rays. It is just perfect. Also the water surface is so smooth without any noise!
    Fantastic outcome. Very high quality image!
    Of course the silhouette of the boat with people is a brilliant idea as well.

    Excellent work!!

    Hi Jean,
    fantastic 100% reflection!
    It makes the whole composition so attractive by doubling the view. Nice asymmetry with the bridge cutting in from another side.
    Blue and yellow go very well together.
    Beautiful spot captured on a great day resulted in a very eye catching picture!

    Bonjour Nicolas,
    lovely wild life photography. The seagulls get a bit burned but they are so hard to expose well being so white in the sunlight. You captured the birds in nice poses with opened beaks which means they were screaming :)
    Also the red ground around it adds so much color and interest.
    Excellent work,

    Hi Daniel,
    I am getting closer to my trip to Croatia. I am not sure though if I go to Trogir or not.
    There are so many places to see and I will be with my 4 year old daughter...
    In your photo it looks like the place has some character worth to visit.
    Well selected combination of two elements. May be it is a bit pity that the clock is hidden so much: I think I would ty to move them away from each other. But nevertheless it is quite elegant and impressive.
    Very well spotted!

    wow, caly TrekEarth Ci chyba zazdrosci tej wyprawy! Takie piekne miejsca i chyba nikt ich nie wiedzial a nawet nie slyszal wczesniej!
    Super ciekawa podroz - zastanawiam sie czy w tym regionie nie wybralbym raczej Uzbekistanu ale wyglada na to ze jesli chodzi o przyrode to tutaj mialas wiecej do ogladania.

    Ten zielony kolor jest bajeczny! I to pomimo ze niebo nie dopisalo. Gdyby niebo bylo w dodatku niebieski to nie wiem jak kolorowo by tam bylo!

    Swietny punkt widzenia, ladnie widac zakole jeziora.
    Te szpiczste drzewa rowniez dodaja uroku.
    Wspaniala fotografia i kazde kolejne zdjecie z Kazachstanu wydaje sie zaskakiwac -niesamowita roznorodnosc krajobrazu!

    Ciesze sie ze zainspirowalem Cie do wycieczek po poludniowej Polsce :)

    Bonjour Jean,
    quite an extraordinary modern art. It seems to be well imitating the silhouette of the church. Pity that the sun was not on the other side to lit the church facade directly.
    In spite of challenging light the final effect is very eye pleasing.
