Halloo dearest Ori
I am yellow of envy!

I had one (in a pot) and I let it die :-(( Thanks so much for showing it on TrekNature :-))

The details are great and very interesting
Have a nice day
warm greetings from a hot spring 43 C in South Africa

Dear Miles,
Thank you for sharing this nice tree picture. I have been to this area and it is great for photographing...
I like your image, but you chose an angle which is very difficult to cope with for a camera lens: the lack of light in the undergrowth and on top the bright sky...

I adjusted the exposure and upload this idea to your workshop.

I always sharpen, after reducing size for TrekNature it helps.

Have a nice day
Warm Regards from South Africa

Hi George
Good Full size portrait of an African Sacred Ibis.

I am not going to start a lengthy discussion about the over saturated colour of the Atlantic - which looks more like the image of an Indian Ocean at mid-day - because we have agreed that you and I disagree about colours/touch up (like the photo of a woman should not have edited out the wrinkles :-))

Talking about time of the day, how come the details of your photo do not appear under "photo information"? If you have a look at e.g. Anne's photos you see among other info the time of the day the photo was taken.

This is rather important when judging a photo, I think...

Mine do not show it either, because I do not store my photos in the original format in which the image was taken.

The reason why I looked for this info is the discrepancy of the sun shining on the Ibis' face but not on the legs - and I wondered which time of the day, how high/low the sun was...

Have a nice evening

Dear friend Horia,
Your new website is breath taking!!

Did you have time in UK to see Emma? She is at present on holiday for a week.

You were flat on the ground or sitting down to get this "'ear to ear"' conversation with the bird?

I had to google to find out more about More og Romsdal - how did you hear about this place? Sounds VERY interesting!

I like your image very much - like all your work my friend - and my visitors your picture on my wall; but this frame,my friend is a bit too heavy for this bird in my opinion. (However, one can not argue about taste :-))

I wish you a nice evening and a good week and hope sincerely, that the mess from Hungary's disaster does not come to your country!

Aveţi grijă şi Salutări

Dear Gert,
I guess you have started to pack your bags for your migration to Cyprus - particularly in view of the prediction of a severe winter for Scandinavia!

As your whole (now truncated)portfolio, this photo exhibits your perfect photographic technique.

I feel a bit embarrassed to mention after all these eminent photographers before me, that a different, not black frame would enhance this great image;(however, one can not argue about taste :-)) and upload to your workshop a suggestion.

Last not least - Alain's comment about the branch is insofar correct, that I first wanted to use the branch shade for an edge for the workshop - et voila it was purplish/magenta... now I used the wing/tail shade.Uuups, you have disabled it.

Be that as it may, it does not change the beauty and quality of your work.

Have a good trip to Cyprus and hopefully a pleasant winter.
Warm greeting from South Africa
We have a rather hot begin of spring at 43 C!!
Best Wishes for your wrist

En sevdiğim arkadaşım

I am late looking at your 11th photo in the Love Torrent series - my Telkom-line is again in trouble upsetting the ADSL...

It is a ""LOVEly"" idea to make a series of mating butterflies, thank you for showing these beauties on TrekNature.

Do they mate at any time of the year?

I see you photographed this couple in Sarikamis - place of the horrible battle.

Did you go there for historical research or a fieldtrip with your students? I always got the impression they all loved these trips!!

I do not know anthing about insects - and I am quite amazed - how different male and females are marked. I also see that many of your couples have furry faces and abdomen (evolved for high altitudes to keep them warm?)

It is a pleasure to view your work like always, thank you.

Have a nice and peaceful day and fun week

Ellerinize sağlık. Selamlar

Dear Laszlo
I join you in remembering the victims of human greed, carelessness and selfishness.

May this catastrophe be a warning!

Dear Volkan
I am so sorry but the notes'translation does not make any sense to me;in English or German...

Also the depth of field is too narrow, and therefore only the middle of the image is in focus. Hence there is not much I can say about your work, except that the details of the eye are impressive.

I hope that the next image is more successful! I can not give any advice - I do not know what the problem was: may be not enough light (if the rain in your notes has anything to do with the bird)?

I wish you the best conditions posible for your next photographing outing

Warm Greetings from South Africa

Bonjour cher ami, Asbed
It is always emotional to loose an old friend - like an old camera/car. Sometimes one hates their inadequacies - but ones knows and is used to them...

Looking at your photos - I often wondered whether you live in the countryside - like I do; this makes choosing and buying new equipment even more complicated...

The quantity of advices received makes it also more difficult!

Last not least it also needs to ''feel'' right, when you hold the camera/drive a car.

I really like your photo: it feels right :-)) you used to walk s lot with your dog; do you still do?

Your whole portfolio as well as this image is like reading a book about life in Canada - the great outdoors!!

Thanks for showing your 698th photo on TrekNature, sharing with us your life in and love for nature.

Bonne soiree et semaine
Au revoir Ingrid

Wie Du weisst, weiss ich nichts ueber wilde Blumen, aber es is pure Freude Dein Werk anzusehen. Leider kann ich mich nicht darauf ausstrecken und den Insekten zuhoeren... (Wir hatten schon 43 C - und das ist der Beginn des Fruehlings!)

Dein Kunst-Historisches Auge hat diese Schoenheit entdeckt, und Deine Photographische Kunst es perfekt eingefangen.

Ich wuensche Dir einen schoenen Tag und eine gute Woche
Alles Liebe
