    Bonjour, cher Saša,
    J'aime beaucoup cette prise de vue et l'étonnement de l'enfant en découvrant cette sculpture très contemporaine.
    Je pense qu'il est plus intéressé par le globe lumineux que par le reste.
    Amitiés.

    Bonjour, chère Nicole,
    Image très intéressante permettant de découvrir la ville sous un autre angle.
    Les trottoirs sont exigus, cela ne doit pas faciliter la tâche aux livreurs (magasins).

    Hello Claude,

    An endearing photo with a clever choice of title. However... for a person who happens to be red-green color blinded, the brilliant red and green will appear as gradations of gray. Maybe that too is appropriate for a dark rainy day.

    Regards,

    Bulent

    Hi Gerrit

    The red soil and the woman's orange dress contrast superbly against the blue sky. Good sharpness and the bg banana trees let us know this is tropical Africa. Luxuriant greenery and vegetation. I like the downward view into the valley. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo

    Good perspective with the corridor at left leading the eye deep into the image. The twin conical towers at right make a good focal point in the distance. Excellent sharpness and punchy light contrasts. I like the shadow play of the roof on the wall too. Tfs!

    Greetings Barbara,

    You captured the flamingoes and in the extraordinary habitat created by the Houston Zoo. The colors are magnificent and the depth-of-field is perfect with both the birds and the tall grass in the foreground all very sharp.

    Salam Ali,

    The photo of the towering mountain is superb. It captures the details of the crevasses and the deep snow clearly. I wonder if this is the same mountain that Gert posted recently.

    Hello Brenda,

    I just returned from a lengthy jaunt to the Pacific, and found several new photos in your rich gallery of New York City. This is a gem that we should place in the group theme, City reflections.

    Have a wonderful, rejuvenating Sunday.

    Dear Malgorzata,

    You captured the scene draped in mystery and mystique, but colorful and very interesting. The fog provides a spectacular veil for the background.

    We just returned from a lengthy "working vacation," and will pick up posting again. But I did not see such interesting scenes, although I did see spectacular scenes in the South Island of New Zealand.

    Warmest regards,

    Hello Gert,

    In first viewing the thumbnail image, I thought this might be Mt. Ararat. But certainly you are correct, this is considerably higher than the Ararat, soaring to merely 5165 meters. You had excellent light for the photo.

    Have a good Sunday,

    Hello Rosemary,

    For the poor lighting I can feel your frustration, but I admire the manner in which you managed the light. The B&W is a good choice in presenting this ancient technique.

    Hello,

    The brevity of our visit to Iceland made it impractical for me to see any power stations. The Icelanders have been extraordinarily resourceful in harnessing geothermal energy, and as a physicist, I am extraordinarily curious about the design of such plants. The color of the water, a turquoise blue-green appears inviting, but as you explain, local hot spots can be scaldingly hot. I found the similar effects last week while visiting Rotorua, New Zealand, where sulfur mud pools just look innocent... but are they ever deadly!

    Warm regards,

    Hello Andy,

    You captured the scene by the late afternoon light, showing an extraordinary atmosphere of tranquility. I just returned from the South Island of New Zealand, almost diametrically opposite this spot on the globe, 12,800 km below. With the Northern Hemisphere descending into autumn, while the Southern Hemisphere welcoming spring the temperatures are about the same right now... but not too much longer.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Klavio,

    After perusing your Persian Gallery, I was overwhelmed by the images and notes. This is a land I have never visited, but made my way to the border crossing exactly 30 years ago. I've been invited to give a talk there, but it is unlikely that I will be able to. The light management here is first rate, the subdued colors highlighted by the reflections in the mirror.

    Warm regards.

    Dear John,

    The beautifully composed shot of Autumn would have been excellent even without the bike rider, but his presence makes it all the more interesting. He is perfectly placed at roughly 62% measured from the left (as you know, the golden ratio is 0.618).

    I have been away for almost five weeks in California, Hawaii, Pacific Ocean and New Zealand. I will begin to post again.

    Have a wonderful Sunday,
