    Hello Didi,
    I was looking through your gallery, and I really like this photo. I remember how impressed I was by the French castles I saw in the Loire Valley many years ago. French castles are certainly magical. I like this particular composition because of the small boat off to the side, and the way the water runs through the arches at the bottom of the castle. The architecture and the setting are lovely.

    Hello Noel,
    It's nice to see this happy family again from a different POV. I like how large the sun is in the sky in front of them. This work of art really has a cheerful feeling to it, and it must be fun to photograph from lots of different angles.

    Hello Andre,
    I like your composition, with the soft sprays of the fountains off to the side. The architecture of the Crystal Palace is also very nice. It must be a lovely place to have a party. The setting reminds me of the Botanic Garden here in Brooklyn.

    Hello Erling,
    I like old houses such as these, and it's nice to see a collection of them together. I like the way each one is slightly more elevated, and the green railing that rises with them. I think my favorite part of this photo, though, is the wonderful tree shadow on the side of the lowest house. The winter lighting is really lovely here.

    Hello Mesut,
    It's sweet that you are thinking about the birds. :-) With the brutally cold weather over here, (this morning it was -18 C here in NYC!!), I have been very worried about all the outdoor animals. This bird portrait is very nice, with the blurred snowy background and this cute little fellow. I really wonder how wild animals survive in such harsh climates...

    Ciao Luciano,
    I have tried many times to take photos facing the sunlight, but my results have not been as successful as yours. I like the placement of the sun in the frame, and the way it creates a halo around the couple on the right. The shadows and light reflecting off the water are beautiful, and I like the the boats and palm trees in the distance, too. It's a very artistic photo.

    Hello Gigi,
    I love fall colors, and the yellow in this photo is beautiful. Having some green color In between the few yellow leaves still on the tree, and the ones on the bench and ground is very nice. It's a charming still life that conveys a sense of the fall season very well.

    Hello Iulian,
    This looks like a beautiful castle. I like the architecture and half-timber details. The surrounding greenery and blue sky also make this a nice scene. The size of the photo itself is a bit small, though. I think we could enjoy the details even more if it were a bit larger. :-)

    Hello Roger,
    This could be a candy shop anywhere, except for the racy ladies. They definitely hint that you are in Las Vegas. :-) I think the colors are fine. Sometimes the lighting casts a strange glow, but it adds extra interest to the shot. I'll take some chocolates, please. :-)

    Ciao Carlo,
    I like reflections, and this is a fun capture. The two small birds are enjoying their bath in the puddle, but I don't think they are aware of the giant legs that are right next to them. :-) It's always fun to look down and find a nice surprise.

    Hello Frank,
    What a lovely and creative composition. I really like the POV, and the lighting. The underside and reflection of the small bridge make a nice dark dividing line through the frame, and the tiny people add extra interest and life. It's an original winter view.

    This town looks very charming, like something from a fairy tale. I like your high POV, and the placement of the villa in the foreground, with the landscape stretching out behind it. Everything blends together so nicely.

    This is a fun and colorful scene. I like the yellow goats. :-) The red accents and people walking around are also nice - especially the one person on the right taking a photo with their phone.

    Hello Malgo,
    What a beautiful scene! I can feel the strength of these falls, and imagine the sound of the roaring water. I like that one tiny person who's standing on the rock, too. Lovely natural colors and blue sky. It must have been amazing to see this in person.

    I really like the playful mood in this photo. The young man really seems taken with the lovely customs agent. She certainly has interesting stockings. There may be some grain, but the mood and subtle details are great. Very nice capture. :-)

    What beautiful smiles. These lovely faces shine warmer than the sun. :-) I also,like the young girl's dress. It looks like she's carrying her little brother's slippers for some reason. Thanks for pulling out another golden oldie.

    Hello Lisa,
    It's a pleasure to see you back with new photos. :-) The lighting in this one is particularly beautiful and warm. I like the how the wonderful patterns in the dunes fill the entire foreground, and then lessen as our eyes move further away. The foreground almost resembles velvet being draped over the land.
