    Hi dear Juliette, how are you here?

    Incredible sharp and clear image at all. The detais of fashinating architectures are so well presented by your high skills. Panfocus appraoch is the best answer, so well balanced proportion too.

    Hi Bonjour dear Gigi

    As you mentioned in your title, this is great postcard, you get success in positioning first of all.
    Also you did get the perfect momet when tourist boat turned the corner in the best timing. Impressive color touch is favorable too.

    All the best and have a good day! Takero

    Hi Ola dear Ana

    Wow great landscape view with so great framework, wisely using the green forest as surroundings. I like this deep color touch so much, so sharp and clear in the details presentation is quite marvelous.

    Hi dear Noel

    Oh ya I see this is now a hotel.
    Quite sharp and clear image in the details via perfect framework and composition. Gray clouds and reflection on the pond are so tasty.

    Hi Cristina

    Her pose and expression is so appealing and attractive for me. B&W color touch is very challenging at this case but you did get wonderful output. 180mm (2.8)
    is nice lens indeed.

    Hello Malgorzata,

    Whenever I see photo of the wilderness of Norway, I picture in my mind's eye the Vikings. No doubt they wandered into this cove one time or another. This is a serene view in the middle of summer. You asked whether we had ever been Lofoten, we have not. We have been to the North Cape a couple of times and remember having a photo taken at midnight with a clock right behind us, without any artificial light.

    Warmest regards,

    Hello Piotr,

    This is really one of the most beautiful photos in your rich gallery. Perched at the crest of the rugged mountains, you can see the drop off on the left immersed in soup fog, on the right, the details a sharp. I've heard of the rugged beauty of Slovakia, otherwise I know precious little about the difference in the Czech vs. Slovak sides. Again, this is a first rate photo.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Frank,
    Poppies are definitely my favorite flowers. I usually see them a bit further south were they often line the roads or railway tracks, more rarely covering entire fields like here. Their colour is fantastic, especially along with the green leaves and stems. This is another fine photo from the rural parts of Rügen, a simple but very beautiful scenery far away from the cities. It's not a complicated photo. This kind of landscape doesn't need any complications.
    Cheers,
    Gert

    Hello Jasmine,

    The light is genuinely beautiful on the Georgian house, bathing it in golden hues, and a highly distressed sky looming in the background. I think this is the best way to photograph some of the architecture anywhere. With a frequency of once per year I would see this sort of inspiring light while living in Oxford. Unfortunately it was during pre-digital photography days.

    Warm regards,

    Colorful, well composed and tightly cropped. This is a good way to present the Cat in the Hat. Your children must have loved this trip to Florida.

    Hello Brenda,

    I thought I had critiqued this photo, but clearly I had not (I may have run out of green smileys). The vertical format is indeed the best way to accentuate the midget among giants. You had wonderful light to shoot this image. Indeed, with that wonderful reflection, in the curved glass, the facets accentuated by discontinuities in the reflected clouds. It might be a good choice for the group theme City reflections, if you care to put it there.

    Incidentally, we are going to be in New York in late September. I am giving a lecture at One Day University, please, let me know and I will have them invite you.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Craig,
    These roofs should be teeming with activities, but I only see one or two persons (maybe). Perhaps this was a very hot part of the day. This is not only a very blue town, it also looks very congested. Where are the streets? Is there room enough for a car or even a rickshaw between the houses? I know the perspectives can play games with your eyes, but this really looks very dense. And I wonder what the neighbors think of the guy who painted his house pink. Traitor?
    Bets wishes,
    Gert

    Hello Roland,
    A very nice photo from the height of summer. Judging from the flags it was not very windy on this hot day. The quay gives the view a fine depth and the woman in partly red, as well as the man in partly blue, provide nice dots of bright colours. The colours are generally very good and the strong light is well handled.

    Mon cher ami, Philippe,

    You have more recent posts than this, but I love the light and shadows on your photo of Château de Rouville. Certainly its Renaissance era construction is apparent, but its ownership and alteration by the d'Auboville Family ownership in the 19th century is also apparent. It would be unwise for windows to be located on the ground floor in times of siege.

    Warm regards, Philippe,

    Hello Eleu,

    Last October I saw an AWACS plane while touring the Aircraft Carrier Midfield, docked in San Diego. But to see it aloft, and with such spectacular light, now that is rare. Excellent photo, and a short but informative note.

    Bonjour Roland,

    Lovely colors and alluring coastline in Verona. The young woman in the red slacks adds beautiful highlight. However, the water is very slightly tilted, and the water could run off the left side.

    Hello Lars,
    Except for the "beach" in the lower corner (and on the red boat) I don't see any people here, and yet this photo has a very lively character. The marina is very crowded and the city skyline is equally packed. It's nice view from a part of a hectic big city.

    Hello Barbara,
    This is a fine picture of this very famous pyramid. Those steps look very, very steep and I doubt that I would try to climb them. The pyramid looks nice enough from this distance and the crowds of colorful people contribute to the fine view,

    It's a very attractive view of the houses along the seafront. The nearest boat is well placed in the foreground and there are many other fine boats further away. The colours and light are superb.
