    Hello Christina,

    The portrait of the Sikh you've presented certainly exudes an independence of spirit and personality. It is sharp, well composed and well exposed. With his hypnotic gaze, he is gracious to accommodate the photographer. the five-k's that you mention are very interesting.

    Merhaba sevgili Mesut,

    Demek ki camasir gunu cekmissin bu fotografi. Oyle bir gunun oldugunu biliyorum, ama haftanin Sali, Persembe veya Cuma günlerinin birisi oldugunu saniyorum, tam hatirliyamiyorum. Herhalde 19.cu asirda insaa edilen evlerin biri, ama tamirata ihtiyaci olan bir ev.

    Sevgi ve saygilarimla,

    Hello Bev,

    I love this unusual shot of Brunelleschi's magnificent creation, the great dome of the Duomo. But, where were you standing (or floating) to take the shot, perhaps atop Giotto's Tower. For me, it is the scale offered by the visitors at the base of the "lantern" of the cupola, that is most useful. If you don't mind, I will use this beauty in a slide show on Leonardo's contribution. At 19, he was assigned the project of placing the 8-ft diameter gilded ball on top of the lantern. Employing exterior hoists similar to those used by Brunelleschi, Leonardo achieved the task, and in the process acquired a lifelong love of gadgetry. I already have a photo showing the view from the top that I sometimes use in my talks — the actual the view that Leonardo had when he was working. But the scale offered by this photo is far better.

    Warm regards,

    Greetings Gert,

    The title you composed for the photo initially threw me off. "Where's the red?" I asked, until I noticed, along with the spherical pink balloons, was the hemispherical red hat of the would-be shopper. Wonderful slice-of-daily-life photo from Bratislava, which I've never visited.

    Warm regards,

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    You've presented an unusual image of the celebrated Neuschwanstein Castle. Most touristic views of it show it in an organic view, fitting so beautifully into the hills. Here you've shown us the realistic, tourists' view, with visitors entering and exiting the edifice. And you've provided us all with an excellent note.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Daniel,

    This photo could be celebration of globalization, with the Pizza, Vespa, the Union Jack (on the rear fender) and of course, its location, Stockholm. Accompanying an image I sent from the Ukraine a few years ago, Globalization, I had written an extensive note celebrating the phenomena. It might be useful for your excellent photo also.

    Your light management in this late hour scene was entirely first rate. the colors a vivid, and the impressive depth of field allows one to read the license plate on the car and the "Emergency" sign in the distance.

    Bonjour Gigi,

    The magical colors you've captured creates an unforgettable scene in this image of the Richelieu River in Marseille. The owners of the white building on the opposite shore should purchase rights to this photo, offering the price of a new car.

    Magnificent photograph, dear Gigi,

    Hello Rob,

    I love this shot from "my backyard." This must have been shot when you and Lars came to Washington, DC. The woman pausing at the intersection, the finger pointing at her in the poster behind her, the trump-playing performer, his prominent American flag. (Of course, you shot it on the 11th of July and just a week earlier was the "Fourth of July," commemorating the day of American independence from England.)

    Warm regards, Rob,
