    Hello Jean,

    Again, I'm delighted to see that you took the photo under a cloudy sky, eliminating stark contrasts in light and shade. The color and detail of the stone comes through so much better. Your note is much appreciated.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Gert,

    Shooting the photographer and including her subjects. This is a wonderful scene, especially with the two young women being photographed stand so confidently, defiantly.

    Hello Mariusz,

    What a spectacular scene. The small boats in the foreground help to anchor the scene. Of course the real focal point is the triptych created by the three arches. They are three complementary scenes outlined in oval frames.

    Fantastic photo, Danos, of the sailboat set against the cobalt blue Aegean. When the sunlight is so good, how is it possible to take a bad picture. I appreciate the note.

    Hello Jasmine,

    Depicted from your symmetrically chosen vantage point, what a spectacular view "the owl" enjoys each day, but especially on this occasion when the atmosphere is clear, the sunlight so brilliant, and the clouds so distressed...

    Bonjour Pierre,

    The classic car is beautifully photographed, from the best vantage point — showing the front and one side. As a young artist I had a passion for drawing and designing automobiles, and this, I thought was the best possible angle. I am surprised the roadster is not from the 30s but, I imagine it was completely custom built!?!

    Warm regards,

    Hello Ourania,

    A superb aerial shot with a nice, well-managed backlight that still has good exposure levels plus the wonderful shimmering light on the sea. Nice repetition of the islands. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Excellent pastel colors. Tfs.

    Hi Ike,

    A superb reflection with the grid pattern of the modern highrise adding graphic elements and framing of each individual square. I like the distorted patterns and their variety. Good sharpness and attractive minimalist colors of blue and grey. Tfs.

    Hi Marc,

    Nice motion blur from the long time exposure on the water that has given a soft a silky look. Good sharpness elsewhere and a wonderful warm cold color contrast between the faint orange-pink sunset colors and the predominant blue tones. Tfs.

    The heat haze is palpable here. Good sharpness and the arid desert environment is well illustrated. A nice warm cold color contrast between the red earth and the blue sky. Both jets are well placed on the 1/3 axis. Tfs.

    Hello Nicolas,

    The piles of stone sculpture reminds me of a Mongolian custom of placing a stone atop a pile before embarking on a long voyage to bring good luck and a safe passage across the desert sands and rocky, arid terrain. Nice reflections and a fine zen mood. Tfs.

    2 for the price of 1! A real bargain with these 2 lovely rainbows! Good sharpness overall. It looks like it was windy as the fg bushes are motion blurred. Beautiful color and saturation. Well composed with the horizon line on the lower horizontal 1/3 axis. Tfs.
