    Hello Rob,
    Very beautiful downtown panorama. I like your choice of composition, with two thirds being sky. I can recognize several buildings, and the sunshine makes the scene even more attractive.

    Hello Alexandre,
    I really like the way you used the cave as a natural frame for the bay. The contrast between light and dark is great, and the lighting was handled perfectly. This is a lovely nature scene.

    Hello Fabiano,
    This photo reminds me of my wonderful trip to Milano many years ago. Of course the Duomo is a highlight of a visit to this lovely city. I like that you included the statue on the left, and there is a nice blue sky, too.

    Hello Malgo,
    Astana is definitely a unique city. The colors in this photo make it look even more surreal. I like the symmetry of these two metallic buildings, with the blue dome in between them. What an interesting sky, too. Do the actual residents of Astana like the look of their city, or do they think it's a bit quirky? P.S. Congrats on 2500 TE photos...wow! :-)

    Hello Paul,
    You have a great POV in this photo. The color of the stone and style of architecture are beautiful. I also like the large staircase. It doesn't rise very high, but it creates a dramatic effect.

    Hello Lisa,
    What beautiful grandeur. It transports me to another time. I like your POV looking up, and the gold and red colors are so rich. It is amazing to be able to sit in the same room where so many great composers performed their masterpieces. Too bad about Caruso, though!

    Ciao Luciano,
    This is a great frame full of architecture. I like all the different colors, and the way the buildings move upwards. The small balconies and arched windows in the foreground are also lovely, and add another style to the composition. Very nice. :-)

    Ciao Luciano,
    This is a fun way to show some architecture, and some lovely colors, too. It's a more surreal view from Napoli, and one that's original. If we really look around, we can use almost anything to create our photos. :-)

    Hello Nicolas,
    The reflections in this clear and calm water are very nice. What I like the most is the green color. We know that the green field exists, but we only see it in the water, and not for real. The same is true for the red house, which we see as a reflection only.

    Hello Chris,
    Great capture of this arch and the blue sky above it. It resembles a landscape we might see in the western US, except it wouldn't be as hot there! It's interesting to see the two, tiny tourists walking across the bridge. Great POV from underneath, too.

    Hello Gert,
    I also like this photo for all the reasons mentioned in the first section of your note. The combination of old and new architecture is very nice. The modern building in front has an interesting wavy design. This looks like a very charming street to stroll down and admire all the different details.

    Hello Paul,
    What a great find! I do think it's something special. We don't see stairs painted like this all the time. I like the main photo because of the old architecture surrounding the colorful stairs, but I also like the WS. There the stairs alone all the stars on the photo. :-) Very nice!

    Hello Malgo,
    Thanks for sharing more exotic beauty from Kazakhstan. The colors and designs on this mausoleum are impressive. For me it's even better that the sky was not bright blue; we can appreciate the colors even more against the paler sky.

    Hello Chris,
    This absolutely looks like the set of a movie. The camels look so tiny in this vast landscape, and I like the colors. The high POV and wide framing make this photo feel like the scene of an epic adventure unfolding. You've really been traveling a lot lately! :-)

    Hello Rob,
    What a cool and interesting photo! This giant face really pulls us in, and I like the way the woman is leaning in to examine the painting. The details are great, and I can tell from the man's style that he is from the 1970's. :-)

    Hello Bulent,
    This is a charming image, and the two cats are cute. I like the red color, too. I like all animals, but I do have a slight preference for cats. There is another saying that sums up the differences between cats and dogs well: "Dogs have owners. Cats have staff". :-) I hope you enjoyed your birthday last week.

    Hello Malgo,
    This is definitely an interesting building. From this POV it looks as thin as a piece of paper. I guess it's like a modern Flatiron. I like the reflective glass on the edge, and the row of trees on the left side.

    Hello Bev,
    These fashionable ladies look ready for a stroll through Ibiza. It's funny how beside each mannequin there is a small stand with a tiny white dress on it. I've never seen a display like that before. I like the stone ground, too.

    I like silhouettes and reflections, so this photo jumped out at me. The black figures against the warm lighting is really attractive. This could definitely be the piano from "Casablanca". :-) It's an elegant photo.

    Hello Serge,
    One of my favorite things to do during the summer is sit by the big lake in Central Park and feed the turtles. They are very friendly, and they like bread. :-) You captured this cute turtle perfectly. It's a sharp and lovely portrait. I hope to see my turtle friends again soon...
