    Hello Ourania,

    Just two months before you, we were there at the same spot. Your informative note as usual complements the photo. Rhodes is a great island to enjoy a vacation... indeed, in any season. Did you get to Lindos?

    Hello Chris,

    I too have seen photos of the umbrellas in different seasons. I like your take on them very much... against a setting sun. Again, what I really like is the freshness of photo, shot and posted in the same season, indeed a day apart.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Serghei,

    You had a perfect day at Niagara Falls, viewing the falls from the American side. Did you also get a chance to see Horse Shoe Falls from the Canadian Side? This was on your first visit to the United States I believe. We saw you in Virginia and Washington, DC then, and in 2014 in California.

    Warm regards, Serghei,

    Hello Constantino,

    The young lady is perfectly placed against the wall of graffiti, and indeed against a blue square framing her. The photo from late June when the sun is at is brightest, you were still successful in the exposure.

    A serene scene, inviting to the guest. I would like to be seated in that small cafe watching the world go by. East Flanders must be very beautiful.

    Hello Ike,

    Isn't remarkable how good the optics of smartphones have become that you can make such picture. The colors and resolution are superb, the composition is function of the photographer, and just as good.

    Hello Abmdsudi,

    This is one of the most eye-catching photos I've seen recently on Trekearth. The dark interior of the teahouse illuminated only existing light is certainly the best way to go with such a scene. Along with a good note, this takes the prize.

    Merhaba Murat Bey,

    I like the nostalgic note that accompanies your photo. Given a choice of patisseries all over the world, I would go for an Istanbul pastahane any day. So you were there in late May, just three months ago.

    Your photograph is a powerful reminder of the catastrophic earthquake that took its toll. I understand over 290 people perished in the earthquake.

    Hello Noel,

    The splash of colors against a lush green Irish landscape, the ruins of medieval buildings as a backdrop... this is a wonderfully eye-catching shot. I thought for a moment that you were running backward while focusing on the phalanx of runners. Your note is engaging, but in America, these men might be considered on the slim side.

    Hello Craig,

    A vertical format works well here, accentuating the verticality of the scene. I can imagine how daunting a task it would have been to lay siege here, Macbeth ordering his troops to charge ahead. Excellent shot.

    Hello Bev,

    The countryside is selectively bathed in sunlight, suggesting a giant brush at work. It's a beautiful shot.

    As for the slope, is that 4:1 or 1:4. The former corresponds to 75 and the latter to 14.

    Hello Chris,

    This is a spectacular capture of the light and colors of Thessaloniki's harbor. Moreover, like a weather report, you've posted the photo the day you took it, revealing the local weather. The city is where my grandfather, and his buddy Ataturk, were both born in 1881. I visited Ataturk's home in 2006, and also the mound grave of Philip of Macedon. The Turkish name for the city Selanik.
