    Hello David,
    I think this is a fairly unusual animal on TE, but I have a feeling iguanas treated like pets can become quite tame. Maybe life as a family pet is not ideal for this kind of animal. I agree this one seems ta have eaten too much, but you had a very nice photo opportunity. Both pictures were taken from good angles.
    Best regards,

    Hello Malgo,
    I thought most crabs were generally much darker brown, so this one looks like it was already boiled... ;-) But they are almost as fascinating as butterflies and caterpillars, so maybe you will start a new trend. I could have taken a lot of photos of cockroaches in Asian hotels if TrekEarth had existed in those days...
    The Latin expression seems to be usually "ignotum per ignotius". Only on Polish Wikipedia I find a reference to your expression. Is that some kind of "Latin, Polish style"? ;-)
    Kind regards,

    A fine and amusing composition where you seem to combine day and night. You did well to observe this possibility and to handle it so technically and artistically well.

    Hello György,
    The WS are more interesting with their many details of old furniture, toys and wallpaper. The main photo is more beautiful but the first exterior view you posted was a better composition.

    Hello Elaine,
    You used the shallow dof well to show us the smiling young lady with blue and red feathers with perfect sharpness. The out of focus face in the foreground draws our eyes immediately to the blue woman.

    Hello Ike,
    An interesting view of the architecture of the entrance hall. The ceiling is nicely designed and enables a good light, and the plants fill their purpose of creating a pleasant atmosphere. The work shown in the WS is quite interesting.

    Hello Rob,
    I am pleased to see you on TE again. This is the kind of photo I would expect to find in your gallery: a close view of something with a humorous twist. (It's not Lars, is it?) The second photo reminds me that photos of people taking selfies always seem more interesting than the selfies. The third picture combines human activity with a fine wider view of the area.

    Hello Piotr,
    From a distance this doesn't look like a gathering place for the rich and famous, but the town is spectacularly located and this photo is very eye-catching. The view reminds me of some small towns in Albania, which isn't so far away.

    It was a wise decision to wait for this photo opportunity, even if you got wet from waiting so long. This is so much better than any selfie could ever be.

    Hello Ali,
    This scenery is fascinating, with a strange but attractive pattern created by the trees on the brown ground. The thick clouds look like they are coming closer to you and might herald bad weather. I hope you made it back to your car before the rain.

    Hello Costantino,
    This is an attractive and well composed photo. The diagonal accent creates good balance and the foreground is brightened by the young persons. There are lots of fine boats to watch and the sky is filled with attractive clouds. Fine light and good colours also make this a very nice photo.

    Hello Ian,
    The green and yellowish hillside is very pretty, mainly thanks to the lines created by the vines. The warm light is a great asset and so is the composition of three distinct horizontal sections. I also like the small white clouds against the darker background.

    Hello Murat,
    This looks like a quiet and peaceful place and the lawn and trees provide a pleasant view. If we want to watch the buildings they are better seen in the WS. In one of them the lady in pink from your last photo is seen again. Your wife?

    Hello Paul,
    These photos show three ways of moving across the water. The activities are colourful and lively and fun to watch, but it's the combination with the buildings and vegetation in the backgrounds that make them really beautiful. I imagine this was a very enjoyable photo session with new attractive opportunities popping up frequently. The good light was of course a great benefit.

    The mountain is impressive with trees growing almost up to the summit. In the lower area we see a number of attractive trees. The warm light and strong colours make the photo very eye-catching.

    The church is simple but very nice and the somewhat unusual tower is my favourite part. The warm light under the dark sky makes the photo very beautiful. It's also very sharp and well composed.

    Hello Piotr,
    This is a fantastic scenery, partly for the steep mountainsides but even more for the abundance of yellow flowers. They create a stunning view which is enhanced by the good exposure. The narrow road going down the hill is a good focal point creating nice depth.

    Hello Malgo,
    I would probably not like to have this painting hanging on my own wall, but I would watch it with keen interest in a museum. I wonder which "ism" it belongs to. ;-)
    The WS provide perfect comPlements and prove that the note is true. I have never seen trees like those and didn't know they existed.
