    Bonjour Gilles,

    What a spectacular panorama. I can imagine van Gogh would have loved this image, but where would he have gone with it. What were the settings on your camera?

    Ciao Luciano,

    You had an amazing vantage point to shoot this photo. The maze-like image of stairs, however, requires close scrutiny to figure out what is up and what is down. Effectively, it is a puzzle.

    Hello Ike,

    Whenever I see photos of archaeological relics, art or ruins, I am immediately moved! You have given a number of superb examples both from Israel and from Greece. The statue of Dionysus is beautifully photographed. And I like very much that it was not beheaded during the Iconoclastic Movement of the early Church. It must have been buried somewhere and the clergy could not get to it.

    Warm regards,

    Dear Serghei,

    I think it is a great title for the unusual "ladder of clouds." The scene is spectacular, and it does not surprise me that you captured it.

    Incidentally, since you've visited me at home, see if you recognize the scene from the last photo I posted, "Green, green leaves..."

    Hello Bev,

    This is indeed a dramatic scene with a sunburst effect over Morecambe Bay. The sharp silhouette of branches on the left edge adds depth, but I wonder if it would not have been useful to lighten the foreground slightly. I am posting a workshopto demonstrate what I am suggesting, in gratitude for letting me use your photo of the dome of the Dumo. I will certainly give you credit in the lecture, on a cruise in Australian waters next week.

    Hello Christina,

    The portrait of the Sikh you've presented certainly exudes an independence of spirit and personality. It is sharp, well composed and well exposed. With his hypnotic gaze, he is gracious to accommodate the photographer. the five-k's that you mention are very interesting.

    Hello Bev,

    I love this unusual shot of Brunelleschi's magnificent creation, the great dome of the Duomo. But, where were you standing (or floating) to take the shot, perhaps atop Giotto's Tower. For me, it is the scale offered by the visitors at the base of the "lantern" of the cupola, that is most useful. If you don't mind, I will use this beauty in a slide show on Leonardo's contribution. At 19, he was assigned the project of placing the 8-ft diameter gilded ball on top of the lantern. Employing exterior hoists similar to those used by Brunelleschi, Leonardo achieved the task, and in the process acquired a lifelong love of gadgetry. I already have a photo showing the view from the top that I sometimes use in my talks — the actual the view that Leonardo had when he was working. But the scale offered by this photo is far better.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Greetings Gert,

    The title you composed for the photo initially threw me off. "Where's the red?" I asked, until I noticed, along with the spherical pink balloons, was the hemispherical red hat of the would-be shopper. Wonderful slice-of-daily-life photo from Bratislava, which I've never visited.

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    You've presented an unusual image of the celebrated Neuschwanstein Castle. Most touristic views of it show it in an organic view, fitting so beautifully into the hills. Here you've shown us the realistic, tourists' view, with visitors entering and exiting the edifice. And you've provided us all with an excellent note.

    Hello Daniel,

    This photo could be celebration of globalization, with the Pizza, Vespa, the Union Jack (on the rear fender) and of course, its location, Stockholm. Accompanying an image I sent from the Ukraine a few years ago, Globalization, I had written an extensive note celebrating the phenomena. It might be useful for your excellent photo also.

    The magical colors you've captured creates an unforgettable scene in this image of the Richelieu River in Marseille. The owners of the white building on the opposite shore should purchase rights to this photo, offering the price of a new car.

    Hello Rob,

    I love this shot from "my backyard." This must have been shot when you and Lars came to Washington, DC. The woman pausing at the intersection, the finger pointing at her in the poster behind her, the trump-playing performer, his prominent American flag. (Of course, you shot it on the 11th of July and just a week earlier was the "Fourth of July," commemorating the day of American independence from England.)

    Warm regards, Rob,
