    Hello Malgo,
    This is so unique and beautiful. I really like the composition in this main photo, with the floor covering in the foreground, and the castle behind it. I like all the earthy colors of the castle and the ground. The WS photo showing the entire floor covering is also great.

    Hello Gert,
    This is a lovely mosque with impressive minarets. I like the arches in the front, too. It's nice to have some people walking on the cobblestones in the foreground. You were definitely offered a lot of hospitality in Turkey.

    Hola Dario,
    This is another great shot. That headdress is impressive. I like the gold tones in this photo, too. The Carnival seems like a gold mine for photographers.

    Hola Dario,
    Beautiful portrait from the parade. I like the sharp focus on this colorful smiling face, with a nice blur in the background. I also like how there a bit of shadow on one of her eyes. Really nice capture. :-)

    Hello Jean,
    What beautiful mountain scenery. That small stream looks like it barely contains any water, but it still cuts through the snow, creating a lovely zig-zag shape. I also like the row of trees that separate the snowy ground from the mountains in the background.

    Hello Claude,
    I think that giraffe is about to swoop down and munch on that woman and child. :-) I like how the people are so absorbed with the monitors they are looking at, and don't seem to notice the giraffe at all. It's a fun capture.

    Hello Ian,
    This is a fascinating landscape. The undulating road looks like a roller-coaster, and I like the depth in this scene. Of course knowing all the damage caused by the fires is very sad, especially for all the animals...

    Hello Krzysztof,
    I just found that this great blue hour photo! The exposure is excellent, with a deep blue, color and wonderful bursts of lights. I like the trails of car lights created by the longer exposure, too. The church is also charming.

    Hello Nicolas,
    It's magical to see this snowy scene; so far we've had no snow here in NYC this winter. It's been warm and rainy. I like the bits of color provided by the houses, especially that red door. The empty bench makes a nice focal point in the foreground, too. It looks like you had the town to yourself on that snowy day. :-)

    Hello Bev,
    It's amazing that nature can create a bright, red mushroom that looks like it came right out of a storybook. I was wondering how large it was, but I guess it compares to the mushrooms in the WS photo with the gnome. It's a fun find!

    Hello Jean,
    I didn't realize an owl's talons could be as powerful as other predatory birds. Those are some fierce nails! Very nice focus on the talons and also some of the owl's beautiful feathers. We can see from the WS that he's a very handsome bird. :-)

    Hello John,
    What a lovely scene. I like how you captured that sunburst through the bare tree branches. The soft mist in the distance and all of the trees make the background very attractive. Everything looks so calm and peaceful.

    Hello Mariusz,
    I like this composition; the curving path and the contrast between light and dark are great. I like all the silhouettes and shadows, too. The fact that the POV is a bit higher than beach level really let you capture a lot of details. Very nice. :-)

    Hello Rob,
    I like your humorous note and lovely view of the castle. It must be crowded all the time. I also like the greenery in the distance, but I find the Bluegrass sign on the right a bit distracting. Fun WS photos, too. :-)

    Hello Rob,
    I knew nothing about the history of George Vancouver, so thanks for the information! I can see that Dutch roots touched Canada as well as the United States. :-) It's a lovely statue, and I like the photo in the WS showing all of the charming Customs House, too.

    Hello Jean,
    What a lovely view. I like how the buildings follow along the curve of the shoreline. They are very attractive, too. That yellow boat really pops out on a cloudy day, and adds some needed color to the scene.

    Hello Mesut,
    Wow! That is really a giant ship! It looks like it can swallow everything around it. I like all of the activity that you captured in this photo. The different boats are interesting, and there are a lot of people everywhere. I also like you elevated POV.

    Hello again Gert,
    Compared to some of your other oldies from Turkey, this photo has a lot of life in it. There are people going about their daily lives, which really adds interest. It's also great to get a comparison of this exact same spot more than forty years later. It was charming then, and it is still charming. The building in the background is very eye-catching, too.

    Hello Gert,
    I like how that stone arch seems to invite us into the scene. Even though the structures were damaged, they are still beautiful, and this spot has a lot of character. It's another nice view from 1971 Turkey.

    Hello Gert,
    This is a lovely view from the past. I like the sense of space and quiet; those boys and their donkey seem to be all alone on that curved path. I also like the edges of the fortress and the arch that they are walking towards.
