    Hello Luciano,
    Caterpillars seem to be the trendiest theme on TE at the moment. Some time ago you would not have "wasted" a beautiful butterfly like today's by placing it in the WS. But I understand you and agree with your choice. These creatures are very interesting and even this one has a certain beauty in its black dress studded with white dots. It is perfectly placed on a green leaf, and the only thing puzzling me is which is the front and which is the end.
    Best regards,

    Hej Lars,
    Detta kunde vara ett perfekt vykort. Vackra berg, en idyllisk dalgŚng och en romantisk medeltida slottsruin. En perfekt solig dag med vackra fšrger. Inte illa fŲr en liten vilopaus lšngs všgen.

    Hello Chris,
    This is a beautiful view with very nicely captured light and colours. It gives me nice memories of this pleasant city, where I found a very decent and comfortable hotel costing next to nothing (relatively).

    Hello Ike,
    What a very nice bird. Not the most colourful or "exotic", but very pretty with its many brown and black tones. The blurred background underscores the sharp brightness of the bird. The WS s another fine photo.

    Hello Malgo,
    It's an interesting place, and indeed it looks like a fairly normal cathedral from outside, however big and impressive. The interior was really a surprise. The photo is quite grey, but what can you do with such a faÁade under such clouds?

    Hello Benny,
    It's a nice surprise that you visited this interesting part of the world recently. You captured a fascinating atmosphere and managed a good exposure under not very easy conditions. I saw that film, but it was about 37 years ago so I can honestly say I don't remember much (anything), except that I liked it.

    Hello Ali,
    This is an interesting photo which at a quick glance could seem like an abstract painting. It's fascinating to watch the nearest mountainside full of trees in the bright light, the shady areas further down and the thick layer of clouds. In the distance is a grey haze looking like we are at the end of the world. The good exposure was essential for the effect of the photo.

    Hello Jorge,
    We have a slightly similar situation here, with a highly divided population facing elections next month. Both sides may find it difficult to form a stable government, and no alternative looks very good. For Brazil I wish Lula any time, in spite of all.;-) This is an interesting street photo with the clothes catching as much attention as the posters.

    Hello Murat,
    It looks like you're staying at more expensive hotels than I do, at least when I pay my own bill. I also prefer to stay much closer to city centers. On the other hand such hotels rarely offer views like this, and they never have such vast areas of recreation. The panoramic feature did a good job (with your assistance) and especially the red sun is spectacular.

    The serpent column is quite beautiful, and you found an angle which has made it part of a fine "installation" along with the other columns. The couple taking photos complement the view nicely.

    Hello GyŲrgy,
    It's a fine building, very British, and carefully restored, as far as I can see. I'm more interested in the composition, with the building seen under the foliage of the park, two trees placed to the left and the path turning to the right. The soft colours are also very nice.

    Hello Kari,
    Whatever that is hanging from the crane it's a relief to see it hanging over water and not the tugboat. This looks so strange that it's almost like a floating art installation. A good and amusing observation.

    Hello Costantino,
    There is not much remaining of the temple, but the single tall column is impressive, and you placed it well between the trees with the sky as a background. The two persons are good complements to describe the dimensions of the ruins and as always to make the view more lively. The light is good and well exposed, and I believe it was another very hot day.

    Hello Bev,
    Many old churches are full of fascinating messages which you have to look carefully for. Their meanings are often lost to us, unless you are an expert, but they were probably quite clear to the people of those days. I think medieval church-goers learned a lot about Hell by studying such stone carvings. The dental status of this Green Man seems to have been okay, while the figure in the WS looks more like a dog to me. The crucifixion window is the most beautiful of the three photos, but maybe this is funnier.
    Best regards,
