Ah, Bob, these are lovely -- they lean right out of the frame at us, almost begging to be plucked, and the green and golden background offers a lovely counterpoint. Nicely seen, lit, framed, and shown, but then, of course, we'd expect nothing less from you!

Warm regards,
Jim

P.S. -- A fine dedication, but the editor in me cannot resist a gentle tweak that your friend must be ancient indeed if his father was an American climbing Everest in 1092! You know I'm kidding, amigo. I make typos, too.

It's a lovely landscape, Anil -- a fine tapestry of colors. It conveys a sense of place well. I'm wondering if it might not have been more appropriately posted on TrekEarth or TrekLens, but I'll certainly give you the benefit of the doubt. It would be helpful if you could add a bit more to the note telling us what makes this place special or unique, what the species of flowers are that we see here, perhaps a bit more about them. I know these details are not always readily available, but they do help us when you have them.

Welcome aboard, in any case, and thanks for sharing your work with us.

Regards,
Jim

This looks like a quintessential Turkish meadow scene, Salih. Those vibrant reds really pop against the green grasses.

Well done!
Jim

I hope this finds you better soon, Rick. Nothing to be faulted with this "just a quick post" of yours. The details are crisp; the point of view proper; the colors and composition on that tree branch pleasing. An interesting species, and you've provided us the tools to learn more.

Regards,
Jim

I do like it, Jacqueline. The colors are vibrant, the contrast pleaing, the details crisp. You have cropped and positioned nicely within the frame, and your excellent note is most informative.

TFS,
Jim

Excellent sharpness and perspective, Zahoor. You show these fine animals, in the soft, warm light very well. Impressively sharp antlers (in both senses of the word) on that one at right.

Regards,
Jim

Snow White it is, Bob. Good to see you up to your fine contributions. I like the different shades of tree and snow in this image, and the heavy, ice-laden limbs, too. It also bespeaks winter. The tight focal area of this image truly sets the scene. Best to you, amigo!

A lovely spot that you've led us to with your usual acumen and adroitness, Bob. The blaze of color captures the eye at first; the framing is subtle, but effective; and what really lingers with me is the amazing clarity of the water that showcases the symmetry so well.

Excellent!
Jim

Well, Evelynn, take me back or forward, as the case may be, to the sap running from the maples and fresh, warm, pure syrup on the flapjacks, and I'll grant you "yummy." :)

But even without being so literal, the cascade of color is quite beautiful. I like the range of tonality, and the juxtaposition against the evergreens.

A most interesting note, to boot!

Regards,
Jim

What extravagant color, Silpa! Perfect composition with both point of view and position on the stem and razor-sharp detail. I've seen many, many butterfly photos on TN, and this is my personal favorite of all to date.

Excellent work!
Jim
