    Hello Piotr,

    This is really one of the most beautiful photos in your rich gallery. Perched at the crest of the rugged mountains, you can see the drop off on the left immersed in soup fog, on the right, the details a sharp. I've heard of the rugged beauty of Slovakia, otherwise I know precious little about the difference in the Czech vs. Slovak sides. Again, this is a first rate photo.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Jasmine,

    The light is genuinely beautiful on the Georgian house, bathing it in golden hues, and a highly distressed sky looming in the background. I think this is the best way to photograph some of the architecture anywhere. With a frequency of once per year I would see this sort of inspiring light while living in Oxford. Unfortunately it was during pre-digital photography days.

    Warm regards,

    Colorful, well composed and tightly cropped. This is a good way to present the Cat in the Hat. Your children must have loved this trip to Florida.

    Hello Brenda,

    I thought I had critiqued this photo, but clearly I had not (I may have run out of green smileys). The vertical format is indeed the best way to accentuate the midget among giants. You had wonderful light to shoot this image. Indeed, with that wonderful reflection, in the curved glass, the facets accentuated by discontinuities in the reflected clouds. It might be a good choice for the group theme City reflections, if you care to put it there.

    Incidentally, we are going to be in New York in late September. I am giving a lecture at One Day University, please, let me know and I will have them invite you.

    Warm regards,

    I'd wait for the current to sweep aways the paper/page floating there, Carlo.
    Though it gave good scale to the fabulous reflection on the red and baige facade - but spoiled a bit the scene.
    Anyway, managed good light that brought out this magic.

    Bonsoir Juliette,
    I heard about Honfleur, that its an attractive town on the Seine estuary. If one day I will visit Normandie this place for sure is on the list.
    Fine daylight and visibility along the waterfront, distinct contrast of tones.

    Mon cher ami, Philippe,

    You have more recent posts than this, but I love the light and shadows on your photo of Château de Rouville. Certainly its Renaissance era construction is apparent, but its ownership and alteration by the d'Auboville Family ownership in the 19th century is also apparent. It would be unwise for windows to be located on the ground floor in times of siege.

    Warm regards, Philippe,

    Hello Craig,
    Saw similar shot in someone's gallery on TE, maybe Abmdsudi (???). A stunning sight, worth a hike to the POV taken from.
    Immaculate photojob, cheers for that unique beauty, the labyrinth of alleys is an attractive objects besides the blue walls.
    Have a nice new week,

    Hello Eleu,

    Last October I saw an AWACS plane while touring the Aircraft Carrier Midfield, docked in San Diego. But to see it aloft, and with such spectacular light, now that is rare. Excellent photo, and a short but informative note.

    Good evening Chris,
    A fantastic sight of the tactonic-plates "thrown" millions of years ago in an orderly manner, laid diagonally to water-level.
    Converging lines from both sides created a marvelous sight. Superb POV taken from.

    Bonjour Roland,

    Lovely colors and alluring coastline in Verona. The young woman in the red slacks adds beautiful highlight. However, the water is very slightly tilted, and the water could run off the left side.

    Why B&W, Karolina, this type of photos most times full and rich with an abundance of colors, and I can imagine certain objects that must be attractive there.
    Though, light not seem so troubled - and yet good distinct tones collected.

    Most notable contrast of orange color against blue, when first opened the thuimbnail, Christiane.
    Daylight enhanced the strong tone of the beautiful hill, also scaled by the man standing atop.
    Unique earth formation, well shown.

    Hello Burak,
    A fabulous sight where the camels obediently "kneel" in orders of the masters. The POV with the big stones of the Pyramids created here a majestic object that take attention when looking at. In November is the best light conditions in the desert for photography.
    Good evening,
