    Hallo Geritt,
    I like the the POV that you chose, it really gives the feeling of being on a bike. You also did a nice job of capturing the light on the morning haze. Your note is interesting, I'd sure hate to see this road when it is busy. It looks challenging enough early in the day.

    Bonsoir Denis,
    Great framing of the church and its reflection. The pond ringed with flowers adds another level to the reflection. It is one of the nicest reflections I've seen.
    The sharpness & colors are good as well.

    Ola Ney,
    The depth of the canyon needs some foreground framing, yours is excellent.
    I was about a month behind you on your tour although I missed Death Valley but added a few other sight. Smart of you to hit the desert before the teaming crowds and heat.

    Hi Danos,
    I think this is the best dolphin shot I've seen. The sharpness and clarity is simply amazing and the very tight framing is perfect. As always, the note is interesting and informative.

    I've seen a lot of dolphins from many different boats and I am in awe of this composition.

    The stunning sky makes a great backdrop for the red and cream swirls and of course the light is better and of course the sharpness and framing are great as usual.

    Hi Way,

    You really show the details of this amazing work of nature in spite of the shadow. Your note is both informative and companionable.

    Salaam Atousa,
    I love the cool greens and blues in your composition, the red cows provide the perfect accent. The colors are natural and true and the sharpness is good, I particularly like the details of the clouds.

    Your photos change my image of Iran, I've always thought of the middle-east as desert but this could be in the foothills of California (but only in the spring)
    Sorry I am so slow responding to your kind note, My husbands health started a severe downward spiral at the time that you posted. I see you'ver been away for awhile now.

    Bonjour Jean,
    Your thoughtful framing has excellent balance with the off-center minaret and the white domes contrasting against the blue sky. It is also interesting how the curve shapes repeat in the arches and the manicured trees.
    I guess Dubai has beaten out Texas as the home of all the biggest. That is amazing: 82 domes!!

    Ola Goncalo,
    I see your family and your photographic skills are growing together. You capture splendid detail here and the framing is very effective with repeating geometry of diagonals and curves popping out of the contrasting blues and greens. The note is very informative, I particularly like your comments about food specaities of the area.

    Hi Tom,
    Good to see that you're off enjoying another trip to Maine, I didn't see a date on your most recent photo so I moved back to this one to check. Anyway, I love the light here and the great reflection. Those tilting pier pilings almost make me dizzy but the building corners are straight and true, I like the contradictory sensory input.

    Hi Donato,
    Your framing of the jetty lighthouse is superb with its off-center position and the waves in the foreground. The sharpness is spot-on and colors make me feel that I am joining you. Looks like you're off sailing.

    Hola Angel,
    Well I guess your trip back was short-lived, coinciding with my TE vacation. Still you got a very nice series of photos with your walks around Madrid. Tour attention to light and patterns show up well here with the falling water and the jet trail.

    Merhaba Mesut,
    I was cruising along enjoying your blue voyage series. I especially like the man in the cafe, deep in thought; it has a lot of emotional depth with your spot-on framing.

    I was trying to figure out the means of your voyage when I came to this photo. You travelling on this boat? That is my dream trip, to cruise the Mediterranean in a catamaran. The boat stands out in this sea of blue and the late light gives wonderful color.

    Hi Ron,
    I like the way you framed the symmetry of this tunnel of orange. You did well with your light management too; the way you managed to draw out the facial detail. The woman's happy smile is almost as warm as your colors. Your orange photo would be perfect for photofolia's theme of the month. I haven't been to Puerta Vallarta in 30 years, guess it's changed a lot since then.

    Sorry I'm so slow getting back to you after your nice comment on the clipper ship, back to the past. I haven't been very active with photography lately.

    I like the way your composition invites me to walk the curving path between the trees. The castle makes a good visual destination, especially with that slice of attractive sky crowning it.
