    Merhaba Murat Bey,

    The Austin Healy remains one of my favorite sports cars of all time. The lines of the car hang together well, and there is a certain unique character the designers imbued it with. This is an excellent angle to photograph it, or to draw it, as I used to do as a teenager.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Gerritt,

    You captured the soul of the young lady, exuding presence of dignity. You also placed her well, with one eye (her right) very close to the vertical centerline. This principle, discovered by English-American psychologist, Christopher Tyler, was unconsciously practiced by the greatest portrait painters in history — including, Leonardo and Rembrandt.

    You've chosen a clever perspective, with the water hose lying in a serpentine manner (actually like a massive anaconda. I like the composiiton very much.

    Hello Stephen,

    An excellent symmetric composition in this architectural portrait. What is surprising is the number and the size of each window. Heating the building would have been expensive, but what wonderful light from the windows. Your note is wonderfully informative as usual.

    Hello Serghei,

    You have a first rate imagination... spotting this scene and choosing an appropriate name. I will always remembert his photo of the balconies in Mahmutlar. Regards, Serghei, tomorrow morning we head LA, Pasadena and San Diego, to start a new trip.

    Hello Daniel,

    With the dramatic sky as a backdrop, I like this image very much. Just a month ago we were in Reykjavik, just a day after you shot this photo. (Note: in your last sentence do you mean "protestants" or "protestors?"

    Dear John,

    This is a very beautiful sunburst effect, creating a pyramid of light. The presence of the jogger is very effective to create a small amount of symmetry-breaking, and making the composition much more interesting.

    Warm regards and have a good weekend. Next week we are starting a new adventure. I will post some photos along the way, or upon my return.

    Incidentally, at the end of my note for "Fish out of water," I added:

    "IMPORTANT:

    After reading my good friend, John Maenhout's note, I thought I would repost the photo. But then, rather than reposting it, I decided to make the two corrections he suggested and post the photo to workshop. He had suggested, #1 making the sea absolutely level, and #2 reducing the pixelation. John was absolutely right. Please, see the the Altered Image and compare side by side."

    Merhaba Burak Bey,

    I never cease to be astounded by the drama of the Grand Canyon The muddy river, perhaps the Colorado, has been scouring the mile deep canyon for only ten million years, but it has carved the land to a billion years past. The presence of the helicopter is a bonus.

    Bonjour Roland,

    I remember this beautiful building from our tour of the city of Reykjavik and its surround area. What makes it so dramatic of course are the reflection. I think, it is a very good candidate for the group theme, City reflections.

    Hello Gerritt,

    You've composed a tranquil image with the solitary tree as the focal point. The colors, depth of field and resolution are all first class.

    I just had a chance to read your succinct, albeit extremely interesting note on your profile page. I imagine you came on this road on your bike. And I was fascinated to read about your employment in the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam.

    We are near neighbors today.

    Hello Serghei,

    You've composed and exposed this scene with extraordinary depth-of-field. Moreover, you've taught me about the Toros (or Taurus Mountains) in Turkey. Now that I think about it, it makes sense that it is a chain created from folding in tectonic plate collision.

    Hello Stephen,

    You've provided a fascinating note to accompany the photo of St. John's Gardens. I looked at the vegetation trying to ascertain how far along you were in Autumn, but then I saw that the photo was taken in July. I imagine those bronze statues would also make a good photo.

    This is an exquisite photo, one of the most dramatic camel caravan I have ever seen. Cropping it in a long rectangle was wise. It accentuates the length of the caravan set against a rising sun.

    Hello John,

    Excellent capture of Nellie against a totally no-distracting black background. Anyone who can scowl as this young lady can must be a good actress. Regarding her voice, I will take you word. "South Pacific" is one of my favorite musicals of all time, especially since I made it to Tahiti and Moorea twice to feel that atmosphere.

    Warm regards,
