    Hello Erling,

    Nice to see you here, and it's nice to see me here. Neither of us has been too active on Trekearth lately. I love this shot of one of my favorite areas of the world. It's a colorful shot with excellent exposure and depth-of-field. the extreme sharpness of the nameof the small boat is immediately eye-catching.

    Warm regards,

    Hello again Gert,

    I was, of course, directed to this picture from your most recent posting and it is remarkable that this image was taken just a few metres away from it, though presumably looking in the opposite direction.

    The architecture is delightful and I like the rough and worn walls on either side. Your composition is excellent, the lines in the cobblestones leading us nicely to the distant archway and, of course, the romantic couple lead us that way too as well as being perfectly placed in the frame and adding a welcome splash of colour.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Gert,

    Yes, I agree: this really is a lovely little street with a pleasant and relaxing ambience with people eating, walking and going quietly about their own business amidst lovely old architecture. A lovely air of unhurried contentment amongst these people too.

    A delightful photograph with lovely light and colours, a fine composition including interesting people - and excellent technical quality too.

    Lovely!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Bonjour Denis,

    What a delightful picture of these young boys having fun fishing with their primitive equipment in this harbour! I wonder if they caught anything to take home for their mothers to cook for their dinners?

    A very pleasing and happy photograph which you have managed to capture very nicely in spite of the poor light. The colours are wonderful and I love the reflections of the boys on the water. Excellent technical quality too.

    Wonderful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Will,

    Wow! What a gorgeous photograph!

    Yes, this picture really is a stunner. You have, not without some considerable effort according to your note, achieved what must be the perfect viewpoint from which to appreciate the beauty of this little village as it nestles in a small clearing surrounded by trees in their rich autumn colours. The natural framing afforded by the foreground trees and branches is delightful, the light and colours lovely and your depth of field, sharpness and overall technical quality are exquisite.

    An interesting and informative note too.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Hello Ann,

    This must be one of your very best pictures from your Yellowstone trip three years ago - I wonder why you've been keeping it to yourself all this time?

    As with all great pictures, it is the superb quality of the light which helps make this so special and your very expert and very subtle processing work has, I feel, helped to enhance it very nicely. Did you add your "negative clarity" while working on the RAW file or was that done later in Photoshop? And, if the former, how did you manage to achieve the effect selectively?

    Anyway, your composition is both excellent and very pleasing, making use of the fence as a perfect "lead in" to the image, the light and colours are stunning and the details and sharpness are exquisite. And thank you also for an interesting note and an excellent workshop picture which reminds us of how you travelled in these challenging conditions!

    Excellent!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Ciao carol Silvio,

    The scene is so majestic and so beautifully photographed that I realize only residents of Spoleto would have the opportunity to see it as it is here, on one occasion in a thousand visits. Excellent depth-of-field, color fidelity, and composition.

    Hello Gert,

    The cobblestoned streets, and the logarithmic spirals of the bracket holding the sign are especially appealing for me. I imagine this is in the old city part of Tallinn.


    I saw for the first and only time in late June 2010, and loved it. There was great optimism in the air especially with the increasing numbers of visitor, and the improving economy. Later when we met friends in Stockholm, they reported that Tallinn had become a favorite place for young visitors. Did you perceive any anxiety after Mr. Putin's adventures in the Ukraine?

    warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello dear Craig,

    Very nice capture from Pera with this red tram. Good pov and light management.
    I have used them in my childhood all over in İstanbul. It was a common transport system untill late sixties and then replaced by busses. Nowadays it's only a turistic attraction in Pera and another one is on the Asian part of İstanbul.
