    Hello Vasilis,

    The light management is first rate here, with the rocks not seen as silhouettes. You timed the small boat in the reflections of the setting/rising sun.

    Witaj Ryszard,

    You've captured a heart-warming scene with the little boy surveying the area. Where is my mother? Liguria is usually a little cold in mid-September, but the little boy, possibly Scandinavian has no problems.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Bev,

    There really is a silvery quality in the shrubbery. The photo is well composed and displaying remarkable depth-of-field. The bare branches hanging over the fence are indispensable for this landscape shot.

    Hello Stephen,

    The rickshaw operators look like they are about to sprint out. In fact, they are arranged in perfect Germanly order. It's a colorful scene and you've been spotted by one of the cyclists.

    Hello Ike,

    I always like scenes of autumn, but they are also sad. The seasons are short and getting shorter, it seems. You shot this beauty about six weeks ago, and at one point all the leaves came must have come down, as they are seen in the distance. Now the trees are "denuded" as they say. Although in Edinburgh I don't think it gets as cold there as in Boston, which is at latitude 42°21′N, much farther south.

    Excellent photo,

    Warm regards (pun intended).

    Hello Murat Bey,

    Your wonderful shots of Bermuda bring back memories of our visit to the museum and port in Hamilton. In first seeing these cannon balls in person the first thing that came to mind was the "close-packing of spheres problem," that Gauss solved, pi/[3√2]=0.74 had offered.

    I see that we are neighbors again, probably because we are in the same time zone.

    Regards.

    Bonsoir Christiane,

    I am very impressed by the light management in this evening photo of Le Chateau de Flemalle en nocturne. I see you used a very short focal length Tokina lens and an exposure of 1/21 second. I would have expected a much longer exposure to get such excellent quality.

    Warm regards,

    This is a heart-warming photo with the two young girls being young girls! The colors of their dresses and the intense cobalt blue of the door complement each other.

    Bonjour Clodo,

    You captured the quad (4x) from the best possible vantage point, standing on a bridge as the boat went by. When each rower has two oars the sport is called "sculling" as in your photo. When the rowers have only one oar each, the boat is called a "sweep." In high school and university I rowed in a sweep (8+); then my son did the same, but reached much higher success; now in a third generation, my 15-year old grandson is rowing in high school in a sweep.

    Here is a "sweep" (8+) also called an "eight". Four years ago, my son who is now a doctor was rowing in a Princeton alumni "eight." They now call them selves "Fat-Cats" and alternate in Princeton's orange and black colors.

    Warm regards and thank you for a stroll down memory lane and sharing this photo.

    Great shot, another typical Indoesian image. Yes this is "Batik Tulis", I know so well and have many collection inmy house. Leaning and cropping makes so ideal framework. This shot makes me remember my stay in Indonesia.

    Hi dear Ourania

    So tasty image. I think this shot was so diifficult to take a shutter--, as the focal points os trees, a falying bird and the moon are so different one another. Under the difficulties you did get so nostlgic image.
