    Hello Ray,
    This looks like a place where one should keep a distance to the environment or one might get very wet. It's a good photo with great light and colors and well timed generous splashes of water.

    Hello Achim,
    This is a magnificent fortress which seems to have undergone extensive restoration in recent times.. It's a nice photo with a welcome inclusion of people. The light and colours are very good.

    Hello Michael,
    An interesting façade, well spotted and graphically attractive. But I thought op art had been out of fashion for decades.

    Hello Craig,
    This is definitely graphically interesting but I have no idea at all about the identity of the building. Not that it really matters, since this photo does well on its own. I think I can spot your soul among the reflections, but I still haven't found your heart. I'm sure it is somewhere here.
    Best wishes,

    Hello Eleu,
    It's a funny picture of these "American Snipers". I have occasionally pointed my camera in a certain direction to see if other photographers follow my initiative. They usually do, even without knowing what I was actually aiming at. You have spotted this well.
    Kind regards,

    Merhaba sevgili Mesut,

    Amerikanin büyük sehirleri arasinda en az bildigim Chicagodur. Yillarca evvel iki kez fizik konferanslarina gitmistim, ancak bir kac gun dolasabildim. Senin Chicago'da çektigin fotograflardan neleri kaçirdigimi görüyorum. Bu fotografin netligi harika. Vaktin olursa "The Devil and the White City," baslikli bir kitabi okumani isterim. 1893 yilinda hem Dünya Fuari, hem de bir seri katlamin oldugu bir ani anlatiyor. Insan kitabi bitirene kadar birakamiyor.

    Sevgiler,

    Bülent

    Hello Miro,

    This scene inside the arts and crafts shop Thamel is a site that few Westerners would get an opportunity to see. Isolating the interior of shop with close cropping leaves out all distracting elements. Its colors really do capture the atmosphere of Kathmandu, and indeed the high plateau around the Himalayas.

    I perused your rich gallery of photos, "MIRO," and will return over and over.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello John,

    I can feel the frigid temperatures and hear the howling winds conveyed in this image shot two years ago. Indeed, northeastern United States, New England, is feeling the brunt of this storm. And yet in the mid Atlantic States (here in Virginia, for example) we've had only a dusting of snow.

    Warm regards,

    Dear Gigi,

    This is one of my favorite shots in all of Trekearth. Leonardo once said, "Observe and ponder and the commonplace will become wondrous... and the wondrous commonplace." This is a simple scene, a slice of everyday life, washing day, but it features brilliant colors, ideal resolution, and very sharp resolution.

    Warmest regards, Ghislaine, incidentally, in mid-October 2015 we hope to visit Marseille.

    Hello Bev,
    It's quite a funny picture, but from the thumbnail I thought it would be even funnier, like you had made the man look like he was balancing the rock on his head in some strange way, similar to how tourists try to look like they're keeping the leaning tower of Pisa from falling. The man does well just for the measurements though. The rock is quite amazing, and if you had told us this was a man-made sculpture I might have believed you. The cuttings look so intended and well considered. I actually see a rather sad face, or maybe it's the head of a dog.
    An interesting contribution to TE with very nice colours.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Saša,
    It's a very nice new building with an elegant and attractive design. I like how the nearest man's teeshirt matches the façade of the building and how the shirt of a person further back is almost identical to the artwork on the building's second floor. Amusing coincidences of matching colours.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Miro,
    I thought Kathmandu was extremely touristic already in 1972, but from your description it has now gone beyond anything I could imagine in those days. It must still be an interesting place, as this colorful photo shows. There are lots of details to watch and you captured the artificial light very well.

    Hello Piotr,
    I remember this square from my visit to Wroclaw last year. I was surprised by the ugly buildings surrounding it today but I liked the "chairs" that you have captured here. However, I didn't manage any composition even half as smart and elegant as this. You have used the patterns of the tiles and the positions of the chairs perfectly, also making the ugly buildings so small that we hardly notice them.
    Kind regards,

    It's a very beautiful and impressive church, still looking quite medieval in spite of many changes. I like your POV which also shows a good bit of the surroundings, including the hills in the background. The light and colours are very good.

    Hello Leslie,
    This is a kind of photo that always makes me wonder what life was like for the people once living here, why did they decide to move? (or did the last one remaining just die?), and what may have happened to them in their new place. Lots of questions but rarely any answers. With all these trees surrounding the house this will probably look quite nice in summer. The low sunshine on this day has created very nice colours and fine tones on the ground.
    KInd regards,
    Gert
