    Hello Burak,
    The strange title is well explained by the note. It's sad to hear about the loss of trees and living conditions for animals. I think the new airport, and probably the great canal, will also mean a lot of destruction of nature. Apart from that this is an interesting photo and I am in no doubt that eventually the bridge will be very elegant.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pavle,
    The vines provide shade and the grapes provide beauty and in due time maybe good wine. It's a nice photo from your friend's garden and the workshop is an attractive collage of photos.

    Hello Murat,
    It's an interesting sculpture/monument/installation and it makes a nice foreground for this view across the water towards the skyline of the city. Both parts of the photo are equally important in this composition.

    Hello Ryszard,
    The buildings is quite fantastic. The architect should have had much fun when designing it. The fountain is a nice addition and serves well as a foreground. Colours and light are excellent as always.

    Hello Pedro,
    This is a large and impressive square with a beautiful church and other fine buildings. The red benches with their blue and green background provide nice and unexpected colors. The people animate the scene, especially those to the right that are closest to the camera. The light and colors are very good.

    People are having a good time by the lake on a beautiful day. The dog also enjoys it and you were presented with a fine photo opportunity. The little group is very nicely reflected and the atmosphere is very pleasant in this nice snapshot.

    Hello Mariusz,
    Although human lives are the most important I also feel a great pain when ancient treasures are destroyed. All of us, regardless of faith, lose parts of our common human heritage when old temples or statues have gone forever.
    As for this photo it shows a remarkably interesting combination of Gothic church and mosque. I have never seen anything like this before. You were lucky to have a group of Indian tourists (I think) arriving at the same time. Few people add so much colour as Indians. They are the blessing of any photographer ;-).
    Kind regards,

    Hello Piotr,
    I recently travelled through central Slovakia and admired the beautiful sceneries. I didn't come to this village but you have captured its beauty very well with this composition. The red flowers and yellow grass provide a superb and eye-catching foreground and the attractive church is very well placed. The clouds are wonderfully shaped and you have managed very good contrasts.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Sayeed,

    What amazed me most here is how your note brought me in the atmosphere of Fes. Suddenly I felt lost too, entering your image, looking down in this small doorway... Really weird sensation!
    There are many who think notes are not needed but I simply loved this one, thank you for that moment.

    Hello Danos,
    The view of the pool and the sea is fantastic and the colours are just as enchanting. You gave the composition a perfect foreground with the stones and the two small candles, that would probably be lit a short while later.

    Hello Daniel

    A really interesting note to explain your photograph. At first I couldn't understand the orange building in the middle distance; your note makes all clear! Excellent exposure at what looks to be a challenging time for photograph-making. Tripod?

    Hello Sayeed

    Beautiful photograph, and I love the note too: though I'm intrigued by the somewhat gnomic comment about subjective deep secrets! The slow shutter speed has worked a treat to create the effect you wanted with the moving figures in the foreground. An excellent piece of work.

    Hello Daniel,
    This is really a remarkable city, from this POV and most others. My memories from 31 tears ago are getting vague, so maybe I should return. With a view like this it is tempting. The colours are superb.

    Hello Silvio

    Another of your beautiful images of this region. I guess this is quite high up, as you say, and so a little cooler than the surrounding areas. Suffice to say that we have poppies growing in our fields here in Hampshire as well!

    Hello John

    So near and yet so far. I'd have come up to London had I known! Which reminds me: what about Kasia's exhibition at the Mall Galleries in August? Anyhow, your photograph is excellent. Technically, of course; but also aesthetically, largely because you've found an unusual (can't say original) viewpoint, and particularly because you've foregrounded people. In fact you've jogged my memory of a couple of snaps I took years ago from a yacht going through this bridge and causing the bugger to open. I think I'll post them, old though they are.

    See you soon.

    Regards

    Hi Daniel,

    I think this is a quite impressive photo, all the blue tones from the water, from the sky and the clouds, and also from the dusk give a very enigmatic and rather cold atmosphere but the vapors remind us of all the hot power in the soils... And of course that golden light from the greenhouse makes that photo very attractive.
    Definitely a photo which makes me wanting to know more about Iceland, thank you for sharing...

    Hello Craig

    Great story: sadly girls don't follow me around any more (did they ever?), maybe because I haven't got blue eyes... You're a lucky man, and grabbed a very decent photograph. I wonder if that's her brother to her left.

    Hello John,

    The composition, colors and resolution, as well as the depth of field, are all excellent in this unusual shot of Tower Bridge. I remember the bridge when it was green, and then when it was red, white and blue. I'm not that impressed by the decisions of the original committee, the interim committee, nor the final committee. Something subdued would be good, but especially not the Victorian green that the British cannot get away from (as we watch the matches at Wimbledon taking place at every turn is that green). Maybe an Italian or Spanish guild of artists should be consulted. I enjoyed reading your note very much,

    The wonderful flowers covering two thirds of the photo gives us a perfect view towards the green hill with the village on top. You found a deep and beautiful foreground for this composition with its perfect light and colours.
