    Hello Daniel,

    This is a "calendar like" expansive photo of the Forum Romano — sharp, colorful and well composed. Moreover, you've been gracious to provide a short but informative note.

    Hello Livia,

    It has been months since I came across one of your photos on Trekearth. This is a superb shot of the young man performing a traditional dance. It is colorful, well timed and sharp.]

    Hello Ourania,

    The long climb up looks strenuous.

    After a Greek lady and her son visited us for a couple of days, our understanding of the Greek economy is colored by her observation. I hope this photo is not symbolic of the future of the Greek economy... after the results of the divisive referendum a few days ago.

    Warm regards,

    What a dramatic photo, Eleu. There is a funnel like formation, heavy rain, a patch of blue and a sunburst effect in the same frame.

    Hi Philippe,
    Clarity of water makes this on look wonderful, revealing details on the river bottom. Fascinating mix of green tones accentuated with blue sky reflections.

    I don't think I've ever seen such combination before. There is a lot of drama in this picture. Exposure of musicians and fireworks fit well together. Your framing is excellent too.

    Hi Daniel,
    Clear Mediterranean water makes perfect background to these boat, each quite different. I've always liked ripple effects of water and this high angle shows them well.

    Hi Vincent,
    This reminds of images from Rorschach inkblot test. And darkish exposure emphasizes that effect. Opening on the cloud cover has interesting shape.
    It is wonderful to see large area of water so perfectly still making a mirror.

    Hi Chris,
    Yellow hue illumination make the City Hall glow like a golden palace. Diferent colour lights under the bridge arches make the river view beautiful, including reflections on the water. Excellent timing with the blue hour.

    Merhaba Murat Bey,

    Now this is a statue (or fragments thereof) that would get the attention of passersby. When you visited the DC area, did you get to the Washington Harbor, where the colossal statue "Awakening" by Seward Johnson is on display. The sculptor, I believe, was the heir to the Johnson and Johnson fortune, but a very talented artist who created bronzes life size everyday figures around Princeton and elsewhere. In the Awakening, a Rip Van Winkle like figure is seen waking up after a century, and his head, hands and feet are just emerging... evocative of this work.

    Thank you for identifying the iPhone 6. I gather you are happy with it.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Klaudio,

    It was in the year 2000, that I visited Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru. You had excellent light for this shot. There really appears to have been mass desertion in the past year or two. There are 8-10 photographers that I've missed. You've treated us to many memorable shots, and the wild animals from Africa are among my favorites. Rather than leaving Trekearth, you should just take a sabbatical.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Jean,

    Rising from the lush green grass, the cross makes an eye catching edifice. It would be fun to inlay a set of stones as markers to make this structure into a sundial.

    Hello Mr. B,

    This is a splendid photo, a good demonstration of judicious composition and light management... but that $15x10^9 cost keeps resonating in my head. Will it ever pay for itself?

    Hello Ana,

    What a wonderful experience to trek with the shepherds and go back to our human roots. The composition is ideal, with the three young man in the foreground, holding their staffs, against a background the animals in the rugged terrain. Here shooting agains the light works well, as the people are almost silhouettes.

    Warm regards,

    The high resolution and brilliant colors show up so much better after my recent cataracts surgery. It is similar to having the white balance reset. Beautiful shot, Mesut,

    Hello Luis,
    You've put this image in multiple frames that regarding the colour fit perfectly but which are also an extension of the original wrought iron work of art!
    The gracefully written 'Orient' describes the overall style and if we did not know that the photo was taken in the south of France, I would have guessed a lot more easterly.
    Truly a beautiful jewel, further brightened up by the many flowers.
    A masterful presentation!
    Best regards, Paul

    Hello Piotr,
    The ears of the corn and the poppy flowers flutter beautifully in the wind and provide a most attractive foreground.
    The church is located in a wonderful natural surrounding and its splendid tower points nicely to those very pretty clouds in the sky.
    Excellent colours, sharpness, composition.
