To dkmurphys: Cold autumn day

Funny you mention that. It looks warm and tropical, but it was windy and cold when I took the picture. Ah, Lake Michigan in September.

To BennyV: Marley

Funny, I wasn't even thinking of the Marley song. I was thinking instead of the chorus to Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind," as sung by Alicia Keys.

Concrete Jungle

Didn't even think of Bob Marley! I was actually referencing the chorus from Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind."

To dta: Dolomites

Funny you saw that. So did the folks who explored it, hence the name: named not after the rock, but the mountains in Italy.

To emka: Survivors

Thanks Malgo. You know, I'm realizing there are still some excellent photographers on this site. Yeah, we've lost Henk, Luis Afonso, Ryan Thayne, Bob Garrigus, and so many others that I viewed as...

To daddo: Points

Hi Klaudio:

Thanks for the excellent critique. It's encouraging to see there are still photographers dedicated to the original notion of TE. I haven't been as good as I should be about mentoring...

To Hanssie: The baths

Hi Hans:

Thanks for the comments! I don't think most visitors see this. It's reached from the gardens via a somewhat dark hallway under ground level. There aren't any signs outside it. We happened...

To Wahclellaspirit: Still here...

Hi Steven:

Yeah, sometimes I'm surprised I still post. Maybe out of loyalty? Finding TE online over 10 years ago is what got me started on photography. So even though it's lost the sense of...

To expat1652: September

September's the time to go to Lake O'Hara. I talked to several people who said it's much easier to get a camping reservation in September (fewer families due to school, and who wants to camp in late...

To dta: Tourist hordes

Hi Denis:

There's a simple way around the tourists. It consists of two steps: 1) Stay in a hotel on the island, rather than the mainland, and 2) take day trips out of Venice during the day. You'll...

To macjake: Bugs

If I remember correctly, by August it's a bit better. Early summer is much worse. But I didn't live here at the time, only up visiting. I certainly don't remember mosquitoes or flies being a problem...

To daddo: Respectful dialogue

Thanks for your comments. I think this is the difference between classical notions of free speech and modern progressive notions of free speech. I'm about as close to an absolutist on free speech as...

To jhm: Billiard Table

Haha! I love the imagery of a billiard table for Belgium. Perfect! In truth, much of Texas is also like a billiard table (except a dead, brown billiard table). My wife refers to those spots as places...

To emka: Texas Scenery

Hi Malgo:

Certain parts of Texas are quite scenic. This is one of them. But by and large, you have to drive a lot farther, through a lot more nondescript scenery, to see anything beautiful in...

To daddo: Man's Hand

Hi Klaudio:

Thanks for your note. Actually, people weren't really involved in setting these wildfires; they were caused by lightning strikes. So I'll call them natural colors. ;)

Good to hear...

Sounds good! Although because I'm traveling there for work, I often don't know until the day before whether I'll have the time to go out to the mountains. But I'll have to see if we can plan a trip...

To npecanhuk: Sharpness

Yeah, I wish it were more sharp as well. It's not for lack of post-processing on my end. It looks like TE has changed the quality of uploads, because my file looks great on my computer, but terrible...

Okay, I think I found it. It had been a while since I did it. :) You go to "Manage Photos," find the photo you want to post a large version of, and then click "Post Large Format" or something like...

Did they get rid of the Large Post option? It used to be that for posts with a 2.5X1 aspect ratio or greater, you could post to Workshop and select Large Post. For example, see here:

To lousat: Advertising

Hi Luciano:

Thanks for your nice note. I have to say, though, your country does a pretty good job of selling itself! Italy's one of the most beautiful places I've ever been.

Cheers!

Hi Aleksander:

It's from a quote that I wasn't able to source--"to be born in the shadow of the dome is to be a Florentine." But I suppose you could also say that everything around is in the...

To stevesaba: f/4

Hi Steve:

A simple reason, actually. I needed all the light I could get, since my camera doesn't do well at a higher ISO. So f/4 it was.

Hi Pierre:

Reading through my critique again, it's a lot harsher than I meant for it to be. My point was to be straightforward. I didn't intend to be a jerk, but that's how it comes off. My...
