    Hello Lily Beth,

    What an astonishingly beautiful place, and you have created a magnificent photograph of it. The light and choice of vantage point are ideal, along with the exposure, colors, sharpness and depth of field.

    Hello Chris,

    I like the way you've framed Hamlet's Castle in the arch, and the resolution in the foreground. Of course, the depth of field is excellent, and the entire image is very effective. The note is highly informative. Thank you for this package.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Danos,

    A perfect composition — here nature shows off its beauty, the small motor boat and the roof of the church add red highlight, much like chop marks in a Chinese scroll, the rugged rocks, the green trees, mountains and sky... all collaborate to make a postcard.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Ourania,

    You had a great vantage position to play as a member of the paparazzi. The young ladies are oblivious to the photographer's presence. Those bananas appear delectable. Are they imported or grown in the south somewhere?

    The textures and colors, as well as the geometric shapes and patterns, this is an eye catching photo. It is only when we observe and ponder that the commonplace becomes wondrous and the wondrous becomes commonplace.

    Hello Denis,

    The vantage point you chose gives an excellent perspective to San Andrea, a inviting coastal town like so many along the coast of Italy, especially Liguaria. The composition, colors and depth of field are all ideal.

    Hello Alfred,

    The depth of field and light management are first rate. You've made a very good argument to put Pushkar high on places to visit in India. I am uploading this beauty into the group theme The Moon.... I originally created the theme around an ancient (33 year old photo that I took), The Bubble About to Burst.

    Warm regards and have a good weekend,

    Hello Ike,

    It's a very dramatic skyline, photographed to perfection. But just as dramatic is the difference between four years ago and now. This is a sensational blue hour photo, although maybe it should be called "Tel-Aviv at Dusk" or "Pink Hour Over Tel-Aviv?"

    Greetings Murat Bey,

    I'm surprised that this is a medium-lift helicopter. It appears powerful enough to lift an aircraft carrier out of the sea. A very good detail shot of the Sea Knight. I saw one on the aircraft carrier Midway last November.

    Hello Luciano,

    Perfect candidate for the humor class, the juxtaposition of the no parking/towaway zone and the parking violator. But then, this is the city of not-so-subtle criminals, and the law has other problems to contend with after all, one tire of the car is clearly on the edge of the sidewalk. No problem whatsoever.

    Have a good Sunday,

    Hello Dear Serghei,

    What an inspiring mountain view. You've captured it to perfections. There is depth of field, composition and the patches of blue seen between the clouds. including the double-decker cable car is very useful to reveal the depth of field. I have visited Asai Kawa in the North Island. Is this anywhere near that?

    Hello Ray,

    A succinct but fascinating note highlights the shot. I think I had heard of the "Yankee Girl Mine," but knew nothing of the context or history. Excellent photo from 6 1/2 years ago. I know Red Mountain, indeed, stayed with friends in their home there.

    Warm regards,
