    Hi Abmdsudi,

    You're capturing well this landscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the terraced farm compartmented by the slope at the foot of a mountain. It's also impressive in small huts seen in some places and color contrast of the lush green and transparent water.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Gunnar,

    You're capturing well this seashore by a good composition and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see blue/calm sea, huge rock and reeds in FG. It draws out well the atmosphere in spring season. It's also tasteful for the blue contrast of sea and sky. And, hikers on rock gives a good impact in this image.

    Hello Pavle,

    Congratulations on your 800th picture on TE.
    You're capturing well this cultivated field by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the compartmented farmland with lush green and brown rich soil. And, it's effective and tasteful for loose ups and down of firmland.

    Hi dear Klaudio,

    You're capturing well this snapshot by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the two ibis and one Common Moorhen on rock, and kids on bicycle. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and brautiful color combination. And, the reflection projected to the water draws out a good effect.

    Kind regards,

    Hello Eleni,

    I like the charming postcard from Ydra. On Patmos and on Santorini, I sympathized endlessly with these animals for the tourists they had to carry up steep slopes. The fatter the tourist, the less they seemed to care about these beasts of burden. What did these creatures do in a previous life to deserve such fates!

    Regards, Eleni,

    Hello Wolfgang,

    Your photo, presumably from a cruise ship sailing into Venice, was initially confusing to me, but then I realized the veritable symmetry created by the appearance the Chiesa Santa Maria del Rosario and the Santa Maria di Pieta. Either it was the same architect, or there was conspiracy in creating this symmetry. In any event, I like very much the informative note you've provided for this excellent photo.

    Hello Brenda,

    With the Empire State Building rising on the top left, and the gorgeous pink flowers anchoring the bottom, there is a most appealing atmosphere in the photo, maybe the idea that spring is finally upon us. Six months from now I may be envious of friends Down Under welcoming the spring, but in the meantime it is a pleasure to see scenes like this.

    Hello Andrew,

    I thought you had been absent for an unusually long period. It's good see you back. Your note here is at least as appealing as this photo. The man sitting on the dock is placed in an ideal spot in the frame, and the B&W format lends mystique to the atmosphere.

    Hello Beverley,

    I like very much the way you've framed the Windermere with the overhanging branches. It is a gray day, and apparently devoid of any winds, but the intrepid sailors are no doubt having fun, but cursing the lack of breeze and the limp sails.

    Dear Gigi,

    The endless rows of tulips converging in the distance are inviting after a hard winter. I see that you shot the photo two weeks ago, and submitted it to TE last week. I am briefly in Istanbul, but am scheduled to return to the United States in two days. I wish I could come through France. My warmest regards to your growing family. And a Happy Belated Easter.

    Merhaba Murat Bey,

    This is the type of photo that Architectural Digest, especially with the accompanying note. There is a relaxed and civilized atmosphere with the open doors allowing a glimpse into the adjoining dining room.

    After arriving in Istanbul on April 17, I gave a talk at Istanbul Modern on April 18. But scheduled to fly back to DC in two days, it seem impossible to include a visit to Dolmabahçe before I leave on April 23. Today I must make a required visit to the Covered Bazaar.

    The woman's red hair is evocative of the tomatoes she is eyeing. I like this photo, and the imaginative note you've provided. I'll take a bowl of tomato soup also.

    Hello Gunnar,

    Congratulations for the arrival of spring. The granite stretching endlessly along the coast is reminiscent of the granite around the shore of New England. I wonder if the composition is similar, and whether plate tectonics drove these shores apart in the distant past.

    Warm regards (pun intended),

    You're capturing well this scene by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the castle and cathedral on hill. It shows elegantly the atmosphere in medieval times. It's also impressive buildings/houses with red roof along he river. And, the green lawn in FG draws out the gentleness in the whole.

    Hello Murat,

    You're capturing well this architecture by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the mansion with traditional Ottoman style. It seems to harmonize well by a good design, tasteful ornaments and beautiful color combination. Especially, it's impressive in ornaments of entrance and outer wall. I know that it lets the Turkey series pass and the feelings to which you sympathize with the architecture, landscape and culture of your mother country.
