    Hello Benny,

    What a vantage point you had to capture some of the defining properties of Luxemburg — castles, bridges, and steep slopes through which the rivers flow. I like your note. The old Hotel de la Poste is on my list, thank you.

    Warm regards,

    Dear John,

    It's an unusual scene with the boat that is part of the floating market. The barrel-shaped cover certainly maximizes the space inside. I wonder what they were selling. The flag is puzzling. Could the boat be the "stall" for Greek goods? This is the first time we've been neighbors on Trekearth.

    Warmest regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Lars,

    In this photo of the Cathedral of Uppsala, you've accentuated the height by using a wide angle lens and emphasized three-point perspective. Although you took this with backlit you avoided stark contrasts in light and shadow, producing an exceptional degree of light management.

    Warm regards,

    Bonjour Serge,

    Red is my favorite color and that is what immediately attracted me to the photo. The photo is first rate. The long lens you have used has compressed the crowd of soldiers.

    Hello Craig,

    The photo is first-rate... as usual, and so is your engaging note. The colors of the costumes and vegetable against the monotonic color of the ground.

    You should do an Excel sheet, rating sites from 1-5 according to 1) difficulty of access, 2) natural beauty, 3) accessibility of edible food, 4) being badgered by beggars, sellers... 5) level of danger from animals, 6) level of danger from heights and widths, 7) level of danger from criminals... and a myriad other unforeseen issues. Maybe 2) should be from 1-10.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Malgo,

    What an entertaining photo with a suitable title. Clearly, you and your lens charmed these fellows. Did you happen to wonder to the Einstein Haus in Basel where he enjoyed his (first) Annus Mirabilis in 1905, formulating the photoelectric effect theory, Brownian Motion, and the Special Theory of Relativity? The second one came in 1915 in Berlin when he formulated the General Theory of Relativity.

    Ciao Luciano,

    I love the skyline of Havana, a living museum of 500 years. We normally see beaches. There is a cobalt blue occurring as highlights throughout the scene. I wonder if some of them are warm water containers, heated by solar panels.

    Warm regards,

    The glory of spring! You are celebrating it with a gorgeous magnolia tree in Ahrweiler. I like the composition with the wrought iron fence and the pastel colors of the parish office.

    Bonjour cher ami, Philippe,

    The perfectly composed photo of the Eglise Sain Gengoult sees the bell tower rise into the gorgeous sky, the roadway and other architectural edifices beautifully preserved. For a tiny town wit a population of only 206, the village has such lovely stone buildings and a four-hundred-year-old church.

    Hello Angel,

    The two trees have been used wisely to bracket the heavenly sight, a blue-green lake and trees rising from vertical hills. The depth of field is excellent, allowing the branches in the foreground and the trees in the distance to appear equally sharp.

    Hello Ike,

    This is the type of scene I like best from the British Isles. I see that you were there at precisely noon. The stone houses have a uniformity in their architecture, presumably designed and built by the same developer. The brilliant red door jam offers a warm highlight to an otherwise series of cool colors.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Gert,

    Your new series of people engaged in small talk is emblematic of the universality of human nature. It's a chance for locals to solve local, national, and global problems. I focused immediately on the marketplace in Stockholm, #4 in the series. You must have some photos of cafe scenes in the Middle East where such banter goes on.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Gert,

    This was #3 in your series of people engaged in small talk. The mood is very different between #3 and #4. A mood of resignation in #4, and a mood of youthful romance in #3.
    Lovely scene.

    Warm regards,
