    Bonjour Beverly,

    J'aime beaucoup cette scène qui me rappelle une série télé que j'aimais beaucoup dans ma jeunesse : Robin des Bois. On sent l'atmosphère de compétition dans cette image. L'arrière plan est de toute beauté.

    L'herbe est très vorace dans ta région. J'ai comme l'impression que l'on ne verra que du vert dans quelques temps.J'aime bien les fleurs à l'avant plan,

    Bonjour Ana,

    J'aime beaucoup cette série. Il y a quelque chose d'attirant dans cette composition. Un mélange d'ancien et de moderne à la fois avec ce berger qui se prend en photo au milieu de ses moutons.

    Il y a quelque chose de très moderne dans la pose de cette vieille dame. Le plan serré de ce portrait fait bien ressortir les détails ainsi que les couleurs. J'aime son sourire.

    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,

    Hello Chris,

    The small railway station is nestled in such a picturesque, but seemingly obscure setting. How on earth did you discover it? This is a colorful shot in the rugged mountains.

    Hello Jean,

    The great German physicist and Nobel Laureate Werner Heisenberg is generally credited with the pronouncement, "Never underestimate how much pleasure it will give a man to see what he already knows!" So it is with Giant's Causeway. Last October on our visit to Belfast, we journeyed to Antrim, and were dazzled by the site of the geologic wonderland just as you must have been. This a very good photo giving an expansive view of nature's stonework. Your note is first rate.

    Jean, you've inspired me to submit one of my photos of the site. Thank you.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Jean,

    Excellent depth-of-field — the colors and textures of the stonework are sharp, just as the man within the frame, within the frame is sharp. A very creative composition with surpassing results.

    Hello Ourania,

    I hope your father is feeling well by now.

    Clearly in this photo the man's shawl is following closely, as he rushes to his car... key in hand. It's a photo evocative of Korkut Bostanci's works.

    Hello Ann,

    Shot with a shutter speed of 1/500 sec, the photo reveals droplets and the separate streams cascading down the rocks. It makes a mesmerizing shot of the Pacific Northwest. The only thing missing are the sounds of the ocean.

    This is a beautiful presentation of Trim Castle, in silhouette. The shimmering quality of the light on the River Boyne is so lovely that I cannot think of any other time of day when this photo could be better. The note is informative, first rate as usual.

    Merhaba Murat Bey,

    The engaging note adds context to the photo of the airport transport station in Orlando. Regarding your experience as a witness to the explosion of the Falcon 9, a supply vehicle for the Space Station, it is reminiscent of an experience I had. Many years ago I was in Orlando, ostensibly to visit the launch of Apollo XIII. That was of course an ill fated launch also. There was even a film made about it.

    Bonjour again Roland,

    The juxtaposition of the bicycle wheel, and the perfectly matched colors of the stiletto heels and water hydrant collaborate to make this a balanced composition. The sun is almost directly overhead, a difficult time to take photos, but this exposure works very well.

    Bonjour Roland,

    The red Vespa stands out prominently in this shot from Calabria. The Confederate flag on the front fender, will make this Vespa a collectors item, since the flag will no longer be manufactured. Sharp, colorful, well composed, busy and eye catching shot.

    Hello Andre,

    The photo, shot without a tripod and without a flash, is remarkably clear, and certainly preferable to a photo with flash illumination. The warm colors and textures are superb. The relatively slow (1/60 sec) shutter speed reveals the motion in the hands of two of the cast members and the petticoat of one of them. Because of the symmetric location of the three women in front of the delineated backdrops, there is a triptych of sorts.

    Warm regards
