    Hello Didi,

    The time of day and the excellent sunlight gives clear and crisp lines. Religious Wars — we think we become more sophisticated, but the total sum of wisdom and ignorance remains the same. Or perhaps, we can look at the greatest geniuses in history, and recognize even genius has limitations, but that stupidity has not limitations.

    Regards and have a good weekend,

    Hello Bev,

    The excellent resolution in the strata (especially in the Beta version) reveals the passage of so many epochs. Orme, I see you were there just recently. Thank you for the informative note.

    We are still buried under snow and frigid Arctic temperatures, but the weather forecaster, who still deserve awards for best fiction, are promising that winter is almost over.

    Warm regards and have a good weekend.

    Hello Silvio,

    Nice greenery. I am missing the greenery of summer and early Autumn. All the trees in eastern Europe appear dead and no sign of any green grass either. Excellent sharpness and a superb exposure on the bright highlights. The tightly clustered stone houses in the village add interest. Tfs.

    Hello Sasha,

    The arch nicely frames the bg scene and I like the shadow play on the roof of the tree branches. Good warm cold color contrasts between the blue sky and the fg red brick wall and the yellow facade of the house. Excellent sharpness and saturation. Tfs.

    Hello Eleu,

    Fantastic silhouettes of the pelican and the fisherman. I am sure that Bugs Bunny mentioned Pismo Beach at one stage. Superb graphism and a marvelous and colorful sunset with nice orange skies contrasting against the blue grey sea at right. Tfs.

    Magnificent symmetrical reflections in the wet sand and shallow water with good sharpness, color and saturation. The red rooftops contrast well against the blue sky. Well composed with the horizontal line of the beach well above the center. Tfs.

    Hello Ike.

    Nice repetition of the ducks or geese in the mid distance, with good sharpness, color and saturation. The repetitive shape of the trees compliments the scene. I like the cropping and wide angled panoramic perspective. The palm trees top left add variety. Tfs.

    Wonderful symmetrical reflections in the tranquil pool of water at right with good graphic elements of contrasting dark and light shades. I like the minimalist colour and soft diffused light. Impeccable sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs.

    Witaj Maciej,

    A superb high pov with good sharpness and incredible repetition of the red rooftops and white washed walls of the houses. The large incongruous pine tree right of center helps to break the monotony and also provides a fine focal point and splash of greenery. Tfs.

    Perfect density levels that have given clean whites and solid blacks as well as ideal saturation and wonderful lighting contrasts. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. The pale yellow red facade of the castle contrasts superbly against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Howdy Jean,

    Pompeii is a huge site. I literally walked all around it until my legs were aching and still did not see it all. This brings back nice memories though. Good sharpness and the people add scale. The red patches at left contrast well against the blue sky. Tfs.

    Hello Wolfgang,

    This looks like a miniature version of the very impressive Parliament Building. You were luckier than me though as you have captured a wonderful blue sky backdrop. It was raining when I was there. The snow adds a good graphic element and the upward pov and sharpness are superb. Tfs.

    It looks like rural Australia, especially with the Eucalyptus trees. They are in their element too as they love water. Punchy light contrasts and excellent sharpness and saturation. The blue sky backdrop is a bonus. The trees help to frame the scene. Tfs.

    Hello Gerrit!

    A good daily life scene from Cuba with the rust red colour of the horse and the peoples skin tones contrasting beautifully against the blue sky. Perfect sharpness and the angled pov on the dirt road adds dynamism and perspective. The purple umbrella is a bonus. It might seem crazy with no rain, but when it is 35c to 40c that sun can be fierce! Tfs.

    Hello Achim,

    They appear like stamped out figures, perfectly equidistant, almost synchronized. It reminds me of a mural showing ancient Egyptian painters of priests or workers. This is a genuinely eye catching photo.

    Hello Mr. B,

    What a truly magnificent high relief, and photographed to perfection. I like the presence of the young woman dressed in bight red and yellow adding color highlight to an otherwise gray stone (any idea what kind of stone?).

    In the note, however, there is a small suggestion. You write, "Spanning a period of about 600 years between the 6th and 10th century AD..." that should be "400-500 years."

    The light conditions were ideal.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent
