    Hello Maria,

    This is fabulous! It's an interior I haven't seen in years. and better than I remember. When I was at Oxford, I remember visiting the Roman Baths with friends from the United States. The guide was the Director of the Roman Baths, and just as he was showing us the lead plumbing originally left there by the Romans, he mentioned that it was not known how the water was heated. I noticed there were flies walking around, unable to fly. I took him aside, and mentioned to him that sometimes where there is lead, there is also the possibility of uranium (uranium decays into lead). "This could be a natural nuclear reactor," I said. He turned red, and admitted they did know how the water was heated. There was nuclear radiation, although quite low level.

    Wearing my artist's hat, rather than a physicist's, I made a sketch of the square in front of Bath Abbey. If you get a chance, take a look at the third photo down in the left column, Bath Abbey.

    Warm regards, Maria, a very beautiful photo. Have a good Sunday,

    Hello Paul,

    Indeed, the mission of Trekearth is "...to learn about the world through photography," and you've done a very good job here. I must confess I have not posted photos of interiors of Japanese homes and shops, and I must rectify that omission also. This is a lovely shot, showing a room in the foreground, and allowing a view of the other rooms and a staircase in the background. Of course, the floor covering is comprised of mats with different textures. I remember a Toshiba Receiver I had purchased three decades ago. In the instructions, translated from the Japanese to English, it said clearly, "Take care not to drop on mat."

    Warm regards,

    Bonsoir Christian,

    You've chosen the perfect spot to show the narrow entry way into the harbor, with the two massive cylindrical towers serving as the gateway. The light is ideal, allowing you to capture colors in high fidelity, as well as the depth of field allowing the foreground and the background to appear sharp. The clouds highlighting the blue sky provide the drama of "a floating French flag."

    Warm regards,

    Hello Cristina,

    The unusual composition is effective, revealing the structure of the London Eye. Indeed, the edifice resembles the wheel of a racing bike. I like the perspective you've chosen to shoot this photo.

    In an unusual composition, the massive abbey appears to be sinking in a sea of lavender. This is beautiful photo, one that is aromatic and a pleasure for the eye. Have a good Sunday, May,

    Hello abmdsudi,

    This remarkable photo you posted from two weeks ago, it may be a slice of daily life shot, but the unusually good and simple composition, the surpassing brilliance of the colors and sharpness makes it a genuinely eye catching image. I did some minor manipulation on the photo, but could not submit it as a workshop. (I removed the distracting bag in the foreground).

    Hello dear Constantino,

    This 3-mast sailing ship, "the barque," is especially beautiful in that it is a reconstructed version of a historical boat. Without the power boat speeding by, this could have been a painting from the 19th century. Lovely composition and exposure.

    Hello Craig,

    I have been watching the FIFA Women's World Cup, and I've known about the hellish temperature. Especially on artificial turf the temperatures were around 130° F (54° C) and the player rubber cleats were melting. I think this photo would have been most inviting for the players. Very nice photo, kids being kids, cavorting in the cool water of a fountain.

    Ciao Silvio,

    The composition, sharpness, colors and textures all collaborate in this lovely photo. The placement of the arch leading into the city, and the high hill in the distnace are strong focal points. The note, as usual, is first rate.

    Dear Serghei,

    It was in 1983 that we visited Kyoto the first and only time. I see that the rails are slightly tilted, perhaps to allow some trains to pass through without stopping. But the curve of the tracks leads the eyes to a vanishing point. It's very effective.

    Warm regards, Serghei,

    Hello Eleu,

    A superb areal shot of the dreaded Mig-15. I remember it well, and I remember when an Iraqi pilot defected to Israel with the first Mig-15 that the West was able to get its hands on. In a program I watched recently, they said that in taking the plane apart, the engineers found that it was not really superior technologically to the US fighters of the time, but it was in the training the pilots received.

    Warm regards,

    Ciao Christina,

    What a superb portrait, and what sympathetic face. My only constructive criticism is to crop the photo 10-15% from the right side. According to a discovery by the British born American psychologist Dr. Christopher Tyler, in all great portraits, one eye of the subject (here the left eye) should be on the perpendicular bisector. This is never taught in art schools, and yet the Masters through the ages have painted portraits that way — Leonardo's "Mona Lisa," self-portraits of Rembrandt, and even Picasso's "Portrait of Dora Maar."

    Regards,

    Bulent
