    Bonsoir Christiane,

    I am very impressed by the light management in this evening photo of Le Chateau de Flemalle en nocturne. I see you used a very short focal length Tokina lens and an exposure of 1/21 second. I would have expected a much longer exposure to get such excellent quality.

    Warm regards,

    Bonjour Clodo,

    This is a heart-warming photo with the two young girls being young girls! The colors of their dresses and the intense cobalt blue of the door complement each other.

    Bonjour Clodo,

    You captured the quad (4x) from the best possible vantage point, standing on a bridge as the boat went by. When each rower has two oars the sport is called "sculling" as in your photo. When the rowers have only one oar each, the boat is called a "sweep." In high school and university I rowed in a sweep (8+); then my son did the same, but reached much higher success; now in a third generation, my 15-year old grandson is rowing in high school in a sweep.

    Here is a "sweep" (8+) also called an "eight". Four years ago, my son who is now a doctor was rowing in a Princeton alumni "eight." They now call them selves "Fat-Cats" and alternate in Princeton's orange and black colors.

    Warm regards and thank you for a stroll down memory lane and sharing this photo.

    Hello Constantino,

    I like the tight cropping in this old tannery building in Samos. It's such a shame that the stone structure is no longer used. If someone would restore it, it could still serve as a residence or business.

    Bonsoir Jean Claude,

    You've chosen an unusually effective vantage point to present this expansive view of Wormeldange on the Luxembourg-German border. Autumn colors are rife, but that was six weeks ago. Most of this foliage must be gone by now.

    Hello Stephen,

    This living statue is certainly elaborately designed and even has a water pump circulating the water. What is sad is the lack of attention the man is able to garner. Your photograph is well composed showing the entire statue, and the pedestrians. I wonder if there is a story behind the fellow?

    Warm regards,

    Dear John,

    What a pleasure to be one of the earliest to comment on this magnificent portrait of the fireman. The sharpness, colors and composition are first-rate in everyway. The old American Indians would not allow photographs to be taken of them, 'lest his soul was captured. You have captured this man's soul.

    Hello Camilla,

    At the outset, I want to welcome you to this exceptionally addictive site few people have escaped. This is a spectacular shot with the best of "one-point perspective." The man is perfectly placed in the frame and adds both scale and a human touch. The composition, colors, resolution, depth-of-field are all extraordinary.

    With the intense sunlight in the American wild West you were able to achieve remarkable depth-of-field. The foreground is as sharp as the distant mountains.

    Hello Serghei,

    Where photographers are aiming their cameras is always a good place to start shooting. They were there before you, and have already done some scouting. You also set up the audience curiosity of the viewer of the, and graciously answered what the photographer is aiming her camera at. No doubt she got good results, she is using one of those new shutterless cameras. I considered getting one before I bought my newest pocket camera, but the decision was made for me. The family gave me a Lumix with a Leica lens, not as fast as the shutterless camera, but very sharp.

    Warm regards,

    Witaj Ryszard,

    All good art is "open-ended." Each viewer has a different interpretation, and you've given the two ends of possible interpretations in your title. This is an excellent photo quality wise, the product of very good camera in the hands of a skilled photographer.

    Hello Will,

    This is indeed an excellent contribution to the theme of Old Doors. An indispensable part of any architectural edifice, except in one of the earliest cities ever, in Catalhuyuk, where the inhabitants would climb ladders and enter through trapdoors in the roof.

    Bonjour Serge,

    This is a spectacular action shot of the gaggle of geese taking flight. I'm surprised that in mid-November, they are still in Canada and have not headed south yet. We have a pond behind our house, a pit stop for Canadian geese flying south for the winter, like New Yorkers heading down to Florida.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent
