    Hello Daniel,

    The shallow balconies, if you can call them that, are reminiscent of some French style architecture in New Orleans, Louisiana. What is unusual here are the colors. The combination is highly complementary.

    Hello Craig,

    Thanks for alerting me to the newest edition of Blarney Caste that you've posted. Using a fisheye lens you've emphasized the height of the structure. it's an effective shot. With the tiny windows that can be used as arrow slits, the place is imposing and probably quite impenetrable.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Stephen,

    As I've said in the past, selecting the edge of a building as a focal point, as you've done on the right, you create an excellent example of two-point perspective. The building looks like it might date back to the early 19th century.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Benny,

    You were highly creative in selecting one of the large ornamental vases to frame a photo of the second vase. The steps leads the eyes right at the subject.
    Well done

    Hello Gert, I would love to see such Indian nothing special again, and specially somewhere in Orissa area. Fantastic all three pictures but the main upload is the best. Wonderful view of the men in white and so many cows. Funny these going somewhere up. Beautiful temples and details of them in WS. I like Hanuman too.
    Yesterday I walked the whole day in rain. Today and the next three will be museums days :).

    Hello Klaudio,
    Beautiful picture of this white flower and the rest of another one. I like these flowers but not much opportunity to see them in Europe. The flowers are always clean even in dirty pond It is why it is the symbol of purity. Lovely picture.

    Hello Bev, Very nice scene in the Clodo style. Maybe the man was asking for something and the lady pretended not to hear or understand?
    Yesterday I listened the lecture in St. Sulpice in Paris about the gnomon there. It was fun as I do not speak French. But I guessed what it was about and it was interesting.

    Merhaba Murat Bey,

    The bird is indeed seeking an appetizer, main course, and a dessert... but are you sure this is a gull? The one thing I recently learned about birds is that what I thought were the knees turn out to be the ankles. Everything below that joint is part of the foot.

    The still waters of the beach offer an effective backdrop for the image of the bird.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Bev,

    I like this simple photo for the subject, the neat and clean lines of the tram and the architecture. I imagine this is a pedestrians-only arcade, with the wet pavement adding atmosphere. The travel agency in the background advertises a most welcome scene presumably from the Mediterranean.

    Warm regards,

    I'm afraid you are right, the man is "talking at "the seated woman (a relative? wife?). Her expression is priceless. Very good lighting allowing the sharp image with excellent depth-of-field.

    Hello Luis,

    Such an eye-catching facade for the curved roadway of houses. The individual houses are painted in pastel colors, and they are all raised about 20 cm off the roadway, I imagine to keep rainwater out. The unusual texture of the road, with the stones embedded like mosaics must create useful friction for pedestrians and for car tires.

    Warm regards,

    Greetings Roland,

    This is a superb shot from Bern, the cleanliness, order and management all on display. It reminds me of a joke that few Americans can understand about European personalities. It seems a man dies and meets St. Peter. "Welcome," St. Peter declares, "Your are a borderline case, and I want you to know what is behind each door. This is the door to heaven, and there the policeman is English, the engineer is German, the chef is French, the manager is Swiss, and the lover is Italian. And over there," St. Peter continues, "...is the door to Hell! There the chef is English, the policeman is German, the engineer is French, the lover is Swiss, and the manager is Italian!"
    Warm regards,
    Bulent
