    Hello Way,
    Beautiful image.
    I discovered 2 of your images from Trekearth located on an Air France Travelogue titled, The Traveliest. Along with yours, there were 4 other photographers from TE that had their images stolen. I contacted Air France this week and am waiting for a response from Paris regarding their theft of my copyrighted image, not only from TE but from my book that has the image copyrighted within its covers. If you want the link to the Traveliest write to me at: warnstaff.photography@gmail.com
    Miss seeing your images, what is the name of the other photo site we are on? I had to wipe out my computer and lost all my contacts, still finding out old ones to replace.
    Thanks,
    Steve Warnstaff

    Hi Anna:

    I like the composition (other than I'd have cropped the tiny bit of tree at right). But this image suffers from several issues: 1) it's quite dark, 2) it lacks good light and contrast, 3) it's not quite black and white but not really colorful, and 4) it could stand to be sharper. I'd do a bit more work in post process for future images.

    Hello Ray,
    Great color in this Jellyfish image. The aquarium in Newport, Oregon also has a great tank of Jellies.

    I couldn't believe it when I saw this photo was from "dsidwell." Welcome back David! It's been a long time since you've posted anything here. I love the bright tone of the photo and the soft processing. Lovely effect.

    Je suis Charlie.

    Lovely shot of one of my favorite cities on earth. I never read Charlie Hebdo, and I probably would have found their irreverent content very offensive, but I admire their willingness to not be censored and to defend their rights of free expression to the death. I hope the bullies that did this are captured before they can kill anyone else, and that they're brought to justice. RIP Charb, Cabu, Tignous, Wolinski, Honore, Maris, Renaud, the two police officers, and the other victims.

    Thanks for sharing. As a longtime TE member, I'm sure you understand why I gave you no points.

    I really like this shot, Rosemary. There's no single focal point, but the shot draws you through those narrow Florentine streets to that incomparable cathedral.

    It's hard to get a unique shot of Lake Louise. With the snow, the low clouds, and the early morning light, not to mention this wonderful vantage point, you've done it. Lovely post. Thanks for sharing.

    Awesome photo. There are so many lines criss-crossing that it would be easy for the photo to feel confused and crowded, but it doesn't, because your crop creates a nice set of triangles in the composition that keep the eye from getting totally confused. The people walking along the pathway also help bring order to the otherwise seeming chaos. Great shot.

    Nice shot Paul. This spot (had no idea it was known as Smuts Valley) is one of my favorites in Kananaskis. I can't believe it's not more popular with photographers. Lovely spot.

    It seems it's almost obligatory to see moose here. I saw two last time I was here. I would have loved a telephoto shot of the mountains in the distance and the fire in the sky (and perhaps a moose or two). But this is also lovely.

    Hi Kasia,
    This strong image is wonderful as the person appears walking upon water in a canal. The high angle, exposure, textures, and the curve of the road are all perfect for this shot.
    Excellent...

    Hi Kasi,
    What I love in this image is the lighting from behind the trees and the beautiful browns and golds the light allows to infuse into the scene. The simplicity of nature's forms and textures are beautifully captured through your lens and in your vision of this scene.

    Going through your images I have to ask, what do you do for a living? Your image of North Korea was a shock as that was the first image I have seen of North Korea on the site.

    I wanted to do this hike on Canada Day at sunrise, but my wife didn't want me going solo in an area known for grizzlies, so I settled for Wedge Pond (a great consolation prize--pictures to follow in the next few days).

    Lovely shot. I've seen lots of pictures of this vantage point, but your sunrise view is one of the finest. You're a hard worker, and it shows in your photography. Beautiful shot.

    I always find it funny when I see articles about fall colors around the country. Utah is never mentioned. But I've been to New England and Arkansas in the fall, among other places, and I didn't find their colors to be any more brilliant than the best that Utah has to offer. And Utah has red rock, mountains, canyons--a better variety of backgrounds than you'll find in any state other than California. It's a fall color hidden gem.

    I like this shot here. The cottonwoods are lovely against those beautiful hills.

    Hello Omid,
    The Temple is beautiful indeed. The craftsmanship that it takes to place the colorful tiles together to tell a story is a remarkable work of art.
    Very crisp and bright image,

    Hi Jerry:

    Welcome to TE. I hadn't heard of this spot before. It looks like with the growth of the trees at the Snake River Overlook, this is a far superior choice. Love the soft light and the bluish-green of the valley. Nice work.

    Hello Omid,
    I agree, may there be peace and happiness spread across the world!
    I have lived in Europe for many years in the past, and I have always been fascinated by the earliest of castles and their significance to the peoples of the regions that once stood.
    I ask you; "What was this castle's main purpose, and when was it built?"
    I love the angle you chose here with the long, sweeping wall. Once, I imagine it was a grand palace where fortunes were traded and made.
    Well taken,
    Thank you,
    Steve
