    Dear Way,

    Long time no see as I was also out of "town".

    I have profound memories for Laos, in particular Luang Phrabang, as it was the most sincere atmosphere, authentic environment with lovely people of our whole IndoChina trip.

    The picture depicts a wonderful moment with monks crossing the shaky bridge, the reflections on the Mekong and the classical river boat.

    Warm regards,

    Erdem

    Dear Cristina,

    It is a pleasure to enjoy your pictures again.

    The b&w atmosphere with the darker crew shades on the masts is a delight,. Looks like an early 20th century scene.

    My only nit picking is related to the black title strap below, decreasing the contrast of the picture as if it is part of the composition.

    With friendship,

    Dear Bülent Bey,

    Too much symmetry sometimes distract the viewer, but I guess here, it is not the case.
    The sofa on the left prevents such a feeling.

    My only nit-picking would be the lack of a human figure presence.

    Sevgilerimle,

    Dear Bülent Bey,

    A nicely captured scene with beautifiul contrast of the red boat and the gradual transition of the grey clouds into white.

    I have not been on TE recently, and I'm afraid my visits will be less frequent than usual.

    Sevgilerimle,

    Dear Erhan Bey,

    It is a striking picture in the sense of showing the building expertise of the Romans. Why did they prefer such a colossal work instead of using typical dirt roads...

    Good framing, nice curve and details.

    Dear Rosemary,

    I like the geometric order in this shot, complemented by the irregular lights/shades on the floor. The flying dust is very nice too.

    I may prefer to have a bit more sharpness and more contrast. But in order to do that, I wish the sharp and contrasted background of the window be darkened first.

    Did you try a crop without the wall on the right? Was it too tight?

    TFS.

    Interesting scene and gesture. Does he play a kind of instrument?

    Although the model on the right is handsome and adds another dimension (of the sort of study) to the picture, I wonder whether a single model would be easier for us to focus on the composition.

    Kutlu olsun.

    Her parçası ayrı ayrı ilginç detaylar içeren bir kare. Bu bir anlamda odaklanmayı zorlaştırıyor belki ama, tam bir renk cümbüşü. Alttan gökyüzüne yönelen lazer hüzmeleri de ilginç bir detay olmuş.

    A successful portraiture under a strong light. The framing is symmetrical and the background -although very close to the hat colorwise- adds a nice sense of depth.

    Dear Cristina,

    It first looked like a "trompe l'oeil" for me, but I must confess a "to do list" is much more creative. :-)

    The black stripe on the right adds another dimension & reality to the image although my first reaction was against it.

    TFS.

    Yes, it does.

    That has a wonderful flavor of diversity of the nature and peacefulness.

    Regarding your note, I guess that's what we all feel sometimes. Everyone makes a choice, often making some compromises.

    Mother Nature gives us such wonderful panoramic delights sometimes, that's one them.

    The light and shade tricks are lovely, so is the gentle slope of the meadows.
