    Hi Elaine,
    I am not too excited about lavender because I have nine bushes of it in my garden and I usually have to cut away the flower stems after they finish blooming... I suppose I have never seen so many of them and so neatly aligned. I mean not in person.
    Excellent capture,

    Hi Elaine,
    I remember the slogan "true love waits"... This is so much like that. I roughly know when the blue hour should happen but I must be there early and sometimes it is delayed... Anyway one has to be patient if one wants to take a photo like this.
    Beautiful panorama, excellent quality,

    Hi Bev,
    Beautiful weather day and quite an attractive scenery. It is sop incredibly flat! We have a lot of areas like that in Poland but I come from a hilly region so this is for me always a surprise. I thought it was some sort of rocket.
    Yes we can learn so much aboiut the world here. Ironically sometimes I learn a lot just by trying to find more info about the place for the note...
    Very well done,

    Bonjour Jean,
    From the miniature I would never guess what this photo presents! What a great idea and a perfect execution! The water was captured in an amazing moment and we can still see the penguin through it.
    Excellent action photography,

    Hi Ali,
    To be honest I don't recall ever seeing any photos with the Caspian Sea, at least I don't remember. This is so close to Europe and yet off the beaten track. This looks like a lovely beach. The evening is quite challenging for taking photos of the beach. Magical time but not easy.
    Very well seen and photographed here!

    Hi Ali,
    Lovely rural scenery. I wonder whether it is a rice field because this is the only thing I know which requires such a wet field to be cultivated.
    Quite an interesting patterns of the clouds in the sky.
    Very well captured,

    Hi Murat,
    Very charming composition wth flowers well placed to decorate the foreground. The main focus is on the house which is so nicely lit but the warm sunshine. The water aspect of course provides a vibrant reflections.
    Excellent capture.
    Yes I like this part of TrekEarth, having maps, pity that not everything works anymore...

    Hi Pedro,
    This is so beautiful! I like this extraordinary design!
    The facade is mainly falt with some lovely pink/purple ornaments standing out of it. Yes the red carpet looks like it is ready for a wedding.
    The tower is so pretty as well.
    Great weather and resulting colors!

    Hi Craig,
    So this is a newly found (by you) land! I just love the name :)
    Amazing drone photography! I am so tempted seeing this and your previous photos made from the drone but I think I cannot afford it and also I feel I carry too big bag already and I take too much time which could be the family time for my own pleasure of taking photos. I see you finally managed to make a bigger trip with the family. Yes it has so many challenges, which I understand...
    Excellent work,

    Hi Lars,
    Beautiful natural scenery. There are just few such imoressive places like Alps which car rival American National Parks.
    Nice asymmetric composition. Pleasant weather with natural colors.
    Nice to see the clouds in the distance and some peaks still having snow at the end of July.
    Beautiful work,

    Hi Jean,
    Great series of coastal photos. It reminds me very much Ireland's coast, which I have ironically explored much more than the British one. I supposed I lived in Ireland 5 years and in the GB 10 years so far. But exactly because I was sort of saturated with such views over there, I tend to look for something else here if possible.
    Great composition, I like natural scenes like this. The buildings at the end also add a nice touch.
    Amazing place, very well captured,

    Hi Jorge,
    Very charming scene here. The monkey seems quite well behaving while the girls appear quite wild. Nice poses, very well captured.
    Yes- photographing a photographer is a very photogenic theme.

    Zdravo Pavle,
    Kakav lep ikonostas! Sviđa mi se tema boja, sa dominirajućim zlatnim i braon tonovima. Crveni tepih dodaje još jednu boju.
    Zadivljujući kontrast bogato ukrašenih slika i golih grubih zidova oko nje.
    Odlican posao,

    Ciao Silvio,
    Great series of photos. To be honest I don't remember much of the interiors, I was so focused on the outdoor aspects of Pompeii.
    Very good reportage which makes us better appreciate how much was presereved.

    Hi Ike,
    I think May has already increased chance for rainy weather there. I have visited in April I think and we had one day a total downpour. We were in Disneyworld.
    So you were very lucky with the weather.
    Busy composition, people enjoy the harbour. I lik ethe scene with the mother and daughter. I would probably focus on them only while they are showing something in the marina.
    Very well spotted,

    Hi Ian,
    There is saying "happiness is the road and not the destination" or something like that, meaning the road could be more attractive than the target. This bridge certainly is very photogenic and in spite of the white sky, the red color stands out and goes well with the lush green vegetation. People add even more color and interest.
    Very well done,

    Nice reportage from this important museum. The crowds make busy foreground, it is a bit noisy but nevertheless attractive.
