    Hi Craig,

    You do have an eye for beauty, and Tosca is extraordinarily accommodating! The combination of red-white-and blue is effective, but the obvious focal point is the young woman... a natural model.

    Regards,

    Hi Malgo,
    View up the stairs gives this special and more dynamic than usual angle. It is absolutely fascinating how rich decorations these classic palaces have. I also think the grey and gold colours are very harmonous.

    Hi Wolfgang,
    It is an everyday view. But I think this time it goes to extreme as just everyone is very focused on the phone like hypnotised. And you have framed this well too with red and blue shirts on opposite sides.

    Hi Piotr,
    Golden toned artificial light goes well with blue hour sky. Clouds also make the sky havig somewhat patchy light likewise those buildings. Pyramid of Louvre has iconic design which I've always admired.

    Hi JC,
    Impressive close front view of the iconic Cadillac. And nicely decorated too for the marriage celebration. A bit lower angle would have hidden more efficiently the car behind.

    Hi Juan,
    While I'm not a fan of partially desaturated pictures, otherwise this is pretty much a kind of picture I'd like to take myself. View across the bridge towards Big Ben and a big bus running surprisingly between lanes.
    I think the New Routemaster bus is very stylish and will some day be as iconic as it's predecessors.

    Hello Noel,

    I remember visiting Blarney Castle in 1996, but... the line going into the edifice, ostensibly to kiss the Blarney Stone was so long, we left the queue and explored the grounds instead. Besides, I felt I had the gift of gab already! This is a gorgeous shot in vertical format, showing the reflection of the tower in the still waters.

    Regarding our upcoming visit on the Crystal Serenity, I noticed that the Crystal Serenity will be in port between the ungodly hour of 4:00 am and the departure time of 7:00 pm. We will not sign up for any shore excursions on board, hoping to spend time with you instead. A shuttle bus provided by the ship will probably take us to a central location in Dublin at a reasonable time (after 9:00 am). We probably will have to return to the ship by 5:00 or 6:00 pm. My mobile phone number is 001 540 845 4962. I don't want to impose, but what let me know of your time you can spend with us? In our1996 visit, among the sites we visited on a tour was Trinity College, and its magnificent historic library. I remember it being lined with busts of the greatest intellectuals, and featuring a bust of Isaac Newton near the entrance. I would personally love to see the hall again. Do you know any other Irish Trekkie well that you would like to bring on a short photographic expedition?

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Greeting Stephen,,

    As usual this is a beautifully conceived and exposed shot... considering how bright the stones can be in the sunshine, and how much contrast you must accommodate. Where the architect has imbued his work with symmetry, we also should celebrate that symmetry. I might have moved over an inch or two to the left to frame the arch within entirely symmetric with the outside door framing it.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Wolfgang,

    As an "old-timer" I am absolutely fascinated (and petrified) by this sight. Increasingly, young people, however, will know no other life... and already regard it as the norm. Recently, sitting on a shuttle bus riding from the terminal to the car renal car agency in Los Angeles, I used my iPhone to capture a 180° panorama of the scene around me. Almost 90% of the riders on the crowded shuttle bus were similarly engaged on their smart phones. Among them, one group of high school students were staring at their screen devices, as was the teacher/coach (?) accompanying them. I know that with my own university students, I witnessed the getting up and leaving the class, ostensibly to visit the toilet. One student explained to me, their phones were on vibration mode, and those walking out had just received "an urgent" message.

    Thanks for sharing the remarkable and terrifying photo. I wish I had taken the photo.

    I added it, however, to a group theme I created, "Mobile Phones."

    Warm regards,

    Bulent
