    Hello Craig,
    Great colors in this photo, both on the wall and in the woman's clothes. I also like how the window creates a frame within a frame. I don't think she looks angry, at least not with you. I'd imagine that if she were, she'd be looking straight at you and opening her mouth to say something! :-) Maybe she's just thinking about something unpleasant. Lovely first photo from India. :-)

    Hello Ana,
    I really like this one! The bright urban art, combined with the old doors, the lock, and the graffiti, all make a fascinating and vibrant scene. I like your crop and presentation, too. It's a very eye-catching photo. :-)

    Hello Mike,
    This made me laugh! That woman really does seem to have the feet of some furry creature. I also like the disinterested face of the woman smoking in the background. It's a fun capture.

    Hello again Craig,
    Don't worry, you can post as many photos of this mosque as you want; it's simply stunning. This straight-on view is very attractive. The openings remind me of giant key holes. :-) I like the symmetry of the bottom section, and then the asymmetry with that one dome on top. Of course the man in white is that one extra thing that pulls the whole scene together.

    Hello Craig,
    Wow! I really love this view! The repeating columns have such a strong impact, and they seem to go on forever. That man is captured in the perfect spot, and your handling of light and perspective is spot on. Great photo! :-)

    Hello Craig,
    This is a stunning B/W view. I really like the contrast between light and shadow, and the way you composed the shot. Having the smaller domes on the left side in the dark, and all in a row is nice, and the main entrance is impressive, too.

    Hello Mesut,
    This is a very appealing capture. I like the contrasts: old and young, man and woman, sharp background and blurred foreground. Ismail has such a lovely smile on his face. :-) The colors on the wall and his sweater are very vibrant, and the warm lighting is also lovely.

    Hello Ann,
    There's certainly a lot of memorabilia in this cafe! I could spend a lot of time just examining the walls. The woman behind the counter looks just like the type of worker you'd expect find in a place like this. I also like the beer bottles - each one a different brand. Nice job with the B/W. Since this scene is very "busy", I personally think the choice of B/W is perfect.

    Hello Achim,
    This view brings back a lot of childhood memories. My grandparents lived right on the beach, not far from the location in this photo, and I spent summers there as a child. I remember walking over those small, wooden foot bridges to get to the ocean. They no longer exist, so it's nice to see them again in this photo. I like that you have a view of both the ocean and some of the buildings. The sea grasses make a nice and colorful dividing line down the middle of the frame.

    Hello Eleu,
    Great framing and colors in this photo! I like that you filled the entire frame with the balloon, and that you captured just one silhouette off to the side. It's definitely very eye-catching.

    Hello again Lisa,
    I really like the magical back-lighting in this photo. That one curious sheep that's facing the camera is also very sweet. There's nice depth and blur to the background, too. The story in your note reminds me of part of the story from the mini-series "The Thorn Birds". :-) I believe they were an Irish family that moved to a remote part of Australia and had a similar type of station. I'm guessing that's where the similarities end. ;-)

    Hello Lisa,

    I like Buddhas, (I have a collection of tiny ones at home), and also old, refurbished spaces such as this arts center, so your photo is a real pleasure for me to see. :-) It's too bad that this particular Buddha has lost his head, but it's still a beautiful work of art, interestingly displayed. :-) This lighting in this space is also lovely, and so is all the exposed brick and the arched window.

    Thanks, by the way, for your recent, thoughtful critiques. I hope all is well on your end.

    Hello Bev,
    I like this kind of photo, with an interesting perspective, and some cool shadow patterns. :-) I like how you used the colorful railing to guide our eyes out into the distance. The depth and clarity of this photo are great, and it's a creative composition.

    Japan is one of my favorite places. I know you'll have a great time there. :-) Nice view of this airplane, and all of the activity needed to get the flight ready. I like the night sky, too. Have a great trip!

    Hello Ryszard,
    A happy spring to you. :-) Here in NYC it is snowing today! I really like these beautiful traditional costumes. The colors are wonderful, and the shoes and hair braids are also very nice. These women look happy, with their bright smiles. It's a lovely scene.

    Hello Noel,
    I hope you had a lovely St. Patrick's Day. This scene is so charming. I like how the woman is coming out from behind the red gate. The house itself is very sweet, and so is her hat! Everything is so traditional and colorful. It's great that people keep these traditions alive, and that we can enjoy them through your photos. :-)

    Hello Malgo,
    I've seen some colorful metro stations, but never a purple one. :-) I like your symmetrical capture, with the small, purple seats going down the middle of the frame. The circular ceiling patterns are also very attractive. Everything is very modern and sleek.

    Hello Suhendu,
    What a beautiful smile for someone who has such a hard life. While hard labor surrounds her, perfectly captured by you, her colorful sweater and bright smile light up the scene. It's a very poignant photo, and I was also struck by the last line of your note.

    Hello Abmdsudi,
    What amazing colors! I've never seen a beach like this before, with so many bright stones. I like how you filled the foreground with them, and then draw us away into the distance, and towards the water. The lone person with colorful clothes is in just the right spot. Very nice! :-)

    Hello Gert,
    I really like your POV from inside the boat. This boy looks very serious, and I also like all of the traditional homes in the background. The WS made by Tyro does a nice job removing the plate, but it doesn't detract much from the photo, even while it's still there. I feel like we are also along for the ride.
