    Hello Noel,

    "Walking with the dead" is reminiscent of a BBC series we see in the States, "Waking the Dead." They are both more imaginative than the title of an American series called, "Cold Case Files," although basically similar in approach. This is clearly a high-class establishment with all the crypts along with the gravestones.

    I just posted a shot from Waterford. You might know about the Waterford Harvest Festival.

    Warm regards,

    Dear John,

    "Your model" lends an excellent focal point top the architectural portrait. Aside from furnishing a touch of humanity, she brings color highlight to a photo that is largely black and white, along with the terra cotta tiles of the various roofs.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Aleksander,

    Your photos of the coal mine workers look like a gallery of fashion and some of these workers would be grateful to have copies of the photos. In B&W this timeless. Well done.

    Ciao Silvio,

    The Renaissance Era Church provides a good background for the scooter-truck. It's an engaging photo with a first rate informative note. Thanks for sharing,

    Hello Will,

    The general composition is beautiful, but then you can't really go wrong in shooting the lakes in Northern Italy. But here the swan is a nice touch as a compositional element.

    Hello Ike,

    This a rugged and untouched view of nature, and so close to the road. The bare branches, massive rocks, and the dried foliage attests to the time of year.

    Hello Bev,

    I took a glance at this image alerted by your last post. It's remarkable that three of the greatest swings occur 1) around the British Isles and Britany, the Bay of Fundy in Canada, and Collier Bay in down under northwestern Australia. So, evn in the ancient port of Gwin Zegal the locals had developed the technology to deal with the huge changes in the tides just six hours apart. I wrote a blog for the National Geographic that explains the science behind the tides in these areas, Low Tide at Guernsey.

    Warm regards, Bev,

    Hello Bev,

    This is the kind of photo we can all learn from. The huge swings in tide six hours apart clearly requires such high posts.

    Bonjour Serge,

    This is one of the finest photos I've seen of the Manhattan Skyline. The colors are superb and the boat in the foreground adds a strong focal point.
