    Hello Can,

    Welcome to Trekearth. It behooves me to tell you that this is a highly addictive site in cyberspace. I like this unusual shot you've used in your debut, a street scene showing an assortment of marine paraphernalia suspended above the street. Colors, resolution and depth-of-field are first rate.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Huub,

    Interior decorators tell us that when artwork is to be displayed on a wall, make it an odd number. You have intuitively adhered to that principle of odd numbers.

    This is a wonderful shot. I see from your profile page, that you are an educator, just as I am.

    Bonsoir Nicole,

    This must be laundry day in Venice, a view that most tourists do not see. Narrow alleyways off the beaten track are some of the most attractive sites in the beautiful city. Thank you for sharing this image.

    Bonjour mon ami, Philippe,

    Like a miniature model of a bull-fighting arena, you have presented this beautiful photo in Elancourt. The light colors of the building are beautifully highlighted by the red padding on the fence encircling the grounds of the arena.

    Warm regards, dear friend,

    All of your photos of Perugia are good, but this one to me special with the unusual lighting. And it is fresh — shot on 5 February, posted on 6 February. Warm regards,

    Hello Paul,

    The sharp and colorful photo shows the Moorish style, something I noted also in perusing the photo. My personal exposure to Chile consisted of visiting Santiago and Valparaiso. You have enlightened me and many others to the sites of the beaten track.

    Hello Pavle,

    From an excellent vantage point yu captured the timeless horse wagon, but this one is different. It has been assembled from many farm vehicles. The wheels are rubber, reducing the noise, and the farmer is transporting what appears to be mulch. It's a very good photo of a slice of daily life... usually early in the morning.

    Warm regards,

    Hello dear Constantino,

    You had lovely weather in Volos just two days ago when you shot this well-composed photo in the marina of Volos. It brings back good memories of my visit there in 1999.

    Dear John,

    You were in the beautiful city of Bruges the day after Christmas, "Boxing Day, as it is known in England. We see extreme sharpness, a high resolution, that all your photos feature. Thanks for the story of the most popular dog of Bruges.

    Hello Stephen,

    With our trip to Sydney approaching fast, I am making a comprehensive list of places to see, and you make an unusually good tour guide. Thanks for the note. The Chinese Garden of Friendship is highly evocative of the one I saw in Suzhou three decades ago.

    Wonderful photo, especially with a subtle presence of the long-beaked bird in the lower right.

    Bonjour Jean,

    The snow, acting as a pristine reflector, echoes the color of the sky, but of course there are the rich golden hues in the water telling us about the color of the terrain. Lovely composition, but did you also try a vertical format to present more of the slopes?

    Warm regards,

    Ciao Luciano,

    I've long wondered, how do the Italian (and to a lesser extent) the Greeks build on vertical slopes, with narrow roads passable only by pedestrians and donkeys. But then Roman engineers started the tradition and their descendants mastered and sustained it. I love this photo, and even the anachronistic satellite dishes fade into the "bookshelf."

    Warm regards, Luciano.

    Hello dear Takero san,

    I love this colorful picture of the four young women (and girl) attracted by the carp swimming below the Japanese garden bridge. All concentrating on what they see, and not on the first class photographer who is taking their picture.

    Have a good Sunday, Takero,

    Hi Lars,

    So well exposed that I would guess that you had 10 minutes to set up your camera, tripod and lights. I think they are twins, hired by the company "Marka."

    Hello Jorge,

    The extreme sharpness of your main subjects — the young girl herding her water buffalos — set against a blurred background makes this a genuinely dramatic shot. You really had to go into the hinterland to catch this rural scene.

    Hello Gerrit,

    This is a spectacular view of what is probably the most naturally beautiful city in the world. I too recently returned from Brazil, visiting Fortaleza, Recife, Salvador Bahia, Buzios, Rio de Janeiro and Foç do Iguasu. Of course, the overwhelming highlights were Rio and Iguazu. My friends drove us briefly to some of the favelas, but it sounds like you had more than an exposure to the favelas.

    Warm regards,
