    Hello Bulent,
    What a creative photo! If you hadn't explained how it was actually taken, I would have believed that you used an underwater camera. :-) I like surrealism, and this is definitely a surreal composition. The ghostly water figures and watery shadows are lovely. It's nice to find something unexpected and interesting like this.

    Hello Serge,
    What beautiful colors! This is a charming countryside scene. I really like the red lighthouse, and the purple flowers in the foreground. The water in the background and the small houses complete this lovely photo. Very nice! :-)

    Hello Terez,
    I recently posted my own small series about the 9/11 Memorial and I found it eerily beautiful. I like your chosen POV, with some of the names showing in the foreground. There was still a lot of construction going on when you visited, and there seem to be less people. It's a lovely photo, but I do detect a slight tilt to the right.

    Hello Jason,
    You can definitely keep the heat out west! We are having an amazing summer with almost no 90 degree days this year. It's heaven. :-) Nice Arizona shot, and I like the slight tilt. That artistic sun, and the words clearly telling us what this building is, are very attractive. I hope none of the recent flash floods have caused you any trouble.

    Hello Craig,
    You and Tosca really seem to like these punishing adventures! I would never make it. :-) The color of the water is very interesting; it almost has a milky look to it, too. Great scenery, with the mountains in the background, and a split view of the water and the ground in front.

    Hello Ann,
    I like this kind of vertical beach composition. I have a photo similar to this one in my favorites. The chosen crop and POV create a kind of optical illusion, as if the ocean were rising straight up. The layers of waves are really nice, and the lone rock and small number of people complete this excellent scene.

    Hello Noel,
    Great modern architecture. I like all of the lines and glass windows. The buildings rise up into the sky and become one with it. Nice choice for the POV, too.

    Hello Magaly,
    This is a lovely view with nice reflections. I like the old architecture, and the leaves that frame the top of the image. The different levels of stone and brick that rise up from the water are also very charming.

    Hello Gert,
    Another great scene from a grittier street in Poland. I like the red brick and the colorful graffiti. Since the couple is completely dressed in black the colors around them can really pop out. I like it. :-)

    This is a beautiful night view, perfectly-exposed, and showing all the great colored lights of the city. The couple in the foreground is great, and they turn the scene into something much more interesting than just a cityscape. Very nice! :-)

    Hello Lars,
    This is an excellent taxi photo. The tight crop and zoom are great. I like that each of the three taxis is shown in a different position: the top one shows the back half, the middle one shows most of the taxi, and the bottom one shows the front. It's a strong composition, and one that I can appreciate as a New Yorker. :-)

    Hello Bulent,
    It's wonderful that you actually got to speak with Robin Williams, and that he is holding your drawing in his hands. I read your response to Rosemary and it was an excellent addition to your photo and original note. It was sad and shocking to see the news of his death on the top of my internet news feed yesterday...

    Ciao Livia,
    Great, high POV! I really like the lighting and the excellent shadows. It's a simple image, but one that's visually strong. This person looks very relaxed, and the yellow color of the bars really jumps out.

    Hello Neyvan,
    This is a lovely city view. There are lots of nice details and artwork to enjoy. The roses in the foreground are also pretty, and it seems like the weather was great since there are lots of people enjoying the park. It's a charming scene.

    Hello Noel,
    Great photo and note. When I first looked at this building I was thinking that it was rather simple for a President's house, then I realized through your note that I wasn't even looking at the front! I like the chosen angle, with the bunch of red flowers in the foreground. I like the WS photo, too! You actually got to meet members of the President's family. :-) The dogs are adorable; I don't think US presidents let their pets meet the public. :-)

    Hello Bulent,
    This is a lovely capture. The actor has quite an expression on his face, and his kimono is stunning. I especially like that there is actually a painting on the famous Kinkakuji temple on it. The colors in this scene are so vivid and beautiful.

    Hello Gert,
    Nice capture of these musicians on their way to play some tunes. I don't mind graffiti if it matches the character of the neighborhood, and in this scene it adds extra splashes of color to the already colorful wall. If people are simply defacing a clean residential building, then I don't agree with it. I don't know if that's the case in this particular location. It's a nice daily life scene anyway.

    Hello Malgo,
    I've seen this funny man before here on TE, and I like that you captured this smiling woman posing with him. I actually don't mind the red backpack because it compliments the other bits of red color near the doorway. It's a fun photo.

    Hello Andre,
    You were courageous to take photos in Zimbabwe. A good friend of mine is from Harare, and most of her family has had to leave due to the current situation. Sadly, the Zimbabwe she grew up in was prosperous and the people were happy. Things have gone backwards... About your lovely portrait, this man manages a smile, even under difficult circumstances. It's a realistic look at daily life in a country that we don't get to see much of these days.
