RE your comment on composition in the Art in the Kitchen competition--I thought your triangular crop, or frame, or whatever, contributed in some way to make it seem more military formation than egg-carton. And thanks for your encouragement re: future contests. JM
I see you have the Nikon D850.I know its probably early days yet but how do you find it. I have looked at it in store and it sounds impressive. I would be coming from my trusty D800 so I am sure there is quite an improvement. Its not the camera or the finances that bother me but all the knock on effects with my software.

It is a pleasure to browsing your galleries. Very well done. I have added you to my favorites list, so I can visit again. John de Freitas
Beautiful work.Thanks for sharing!
Hi ... you are so creative .I like your works so much....I am an artist from Udaipur , India.i paint on canvas, paper etc .. I hope we can be good friends ....
what more can i say .. except keep-smiling ..
Looking on your gallery to see if you captured the 16 second fireworks display that's been a highlight of our news here.
That was a huge oops!
The rodeo pix are amazing. Great color and action. You did a great job. rr
Very nice galleries. YOU are a photographic artist!
Stunning galleries. Thanks. Best. J
Hi Walter ~
I just wanted to wish you and Mrs. A a very Merry Christmas and the Happiest and Healthiest of New Years!
Great pictures. I served on the USS Midway
Very nice Galleries
Thank you for you visit and encouraging Walter Bye
Hi, Walter! Congrats on your Show & Tell win. I especially like the shot of the elephants. =Rocky=
Hey I went to cuba and I'll be back soon.
I'm impressed with your work and the ultra high quality of your images.
If I may offer a suggestion about viewing the images. When I see a thumbnail I like, I click on it to view the larger image, BUT, the ones I've clicked don't show up until I scroll down a ways. Frankly, I find that annoying. I try to arrange the first image in a gallery to be the title image. Then it is always the first one after opening the gallery.
Not, not, not. That is the word that goes in front of "insulted" in my comment to you Walter. Sorry about that.
I hope you were insulted with my comments on your Midway photo. You did a great job. I only wanted it to be better for the viewer. I didn't know you were a profession photographer. I did flew the photo Crusader my first two cruises on the Coral Sea and Ticonderoga. I also spent four months learning the photo business in Photo B School in Pensacola while flying the F9F-Photo Bird. Had to learn photography from the ground up. We loaded our own film and carried it out to the plane. A photo learned to appreciate how the image got on the film for use by the intelligence team. I have a little feel for your job and know that learning it didn't come easy. I thank you for what you have done for those who will use your Midway photo to show their family what Daddy did in the Navy. Thanks for the outstanding job. By the way, my first squardron VFP-63 at Miramar had the F-8, F-9, A-3 and SNB photo planes when I got there in April of 1959 plus 3 F9F-8Ts. We had over 50 officers and pilots at that time. After my first shore duty in the Pentagon, I came back to fly the F-8 fighters in VF-211, VF-124 and VF-24. I was playing softball in a ship's tournament when Saigon fell. All fighters and excess squadrons were off loaded in the Cubi Point while the Hancock came back with over 5,000 VN survivors which I had the honor of helping get on Air Force planes back to the US within 5 to 6 hours of processing at Grande Island in Subic Bay. These are days I shall never forget. What do I tell my grandchildren when they ask me "And what did you do in the war Grandpa?"
Hi Walter I use both Cameras Pentax 20D Canon 50D Thanks for your encouraging comment
Thank you for your latest comment. Would you believe it, it is comment No. 1000!
I'm very happy that it would come from you. Wish I had a prize to give away ; - )
All the Best
Walter, thanks so much for doing this Beatle song challenge. I am really enjoying it and it is a great way to get to know my way around Pbase!
Hello Walter, thanks a lot for your idea for the July challenge about the Beatle-songs, I was not a great fan before but now after hearing so many beautiful songs I begin to understand my husband (he past away 4 years ago and je was a big big Beatle fan), kind regards, Rosemarie :o)
Tony van Aarle
I live in the Netherlands and lived in San Diego from November 2000 till November 2002.
Your pictures of San Diego bring back happy memories of that time.
Thank you very much for that!
You make awesome photo's
All the best, Tony van Aarle
Thank you for the vote on my cat "Babie".
She had an operation on her thyroid glands a few months ago. She doesn't seem quite herself any more, as if the operation has turned her into an old girl. She does like her cuddles though. I'm hoping that she will come to life a little bit more when she can sit outside in the sunshine.
You and yours family are in our prayers.
Walter, I publish a monthly newsletter for our non-profit club of model builders here in Victoria (~50 members). I wish to use in this month's issue (The Binnacle) a couple of your shots of the B-39 with proper credit to you. The article is about the B-39 and it's history by a club member.
Thank you for your nice comment.
Your work is excellent! Congratulations!!!
Danke Walter für Deine unermüdlichen Kommentare.
Alles Gute für 2010 - Norbi
Thanks for you comment on my gallery.
Thanks for the complimentary comment you left on my Food and Drink gallery.
I love your collection of galleries! You are an amazing Photographer...I look forward to viewing more, what a wonderful experience! Thank you for sharing. dcs
I see that you have surpassed the one million hits on your Pbase site ..... Sorry I'm a little late.
That's quite a milestone! I'm sure that you will reach the two million mark much sooner with all of the rich creative things that you do. You are certainly an inspiration and a gifted photographic artist!
Congratulations and thanks for sharing you terrific works!
Paolo Peggi (aka Bracciodiferro)
Ok Walter,you are in my "favorite" righ now!
My compliments to you and your Art!
It is always a plesure to view your beautiful works again and again Walter, thanks for sharing your works with us, Danke für deine freundlichen Kommentare und dein beständiges Interesse an meinen Fotos Walter, ich wünsche dir ein wunderschönes Wochendende! Rosemarie :o)
Nikon Mama - Birgitte Ott
Please receive my deepest respect for your very beautiful art work! Pheeeeeeew - stunning! Gives me goosebumps ...
Hilsen Birgitte :o)
I very much enjoyed our meeting today at the zoo. I was a little too embarrassed to admit what a light-weight I am in photography but after seeing your photos here I am so impressed.
I wish we would have disclosed our love of classical music sooner on our encounter. I have no freinds who share that interest with me.
Hope to see you soon.
If you can spare some time, I would appreciate very much your comments on the gallery:
Hope to hear from you. Thanks.
I was admiring your forum, thank you for your vision. It has been quite inspiring.
I am just beginning to do dig photo.
I look forward seeing more of your work.
muy buenos trabajos, excelente calidad de fotografía,
Oh dear... can't believe I spelled "road" wrong. Must be toooo early in the morning. I guess Pbase does that to you!
Good morning Walter... Have been enjoying your galleries, particularly food, Diego, the jellyfish, self portraits and the multitude of photos that show your great sense of humor. If you see someone traveling the rode waving like a wild woman you will know I have spotted your license plate! Happy shooting... Fay
Hi Walter, just thought I'd let you know how much I've enjoyed visiting your
gallery over the past few months.
It really is a superb collection of photos of the highest quality, certainly one of my very favourite galleries on Pbase - the individual shots themselves are so clean, balanced and full of detail and finesse, and it's been a true source of inspiration to me in my attitude & approach to and execution of architectural B&W photography.
Fantastic stuff, hope to see much more like this from you on Pbase :o)
Dave your macro gallery is simply amazing.
Just got my macro and still have lots to learn.
Thank you for sharing
I continue to be amazed at your photos Walter. You have a great mix of terrific subjects. Nice work!
I hope that all is well with you and the family.
Hej Walter, amazing galleries.... You have a great eye for photography, and a unique sense of style. I have truly enjoyed going through your galleries - the range and variety of topics, the originality of viewpoint, and the quality. Well done, keep it up ! Greetings from Poland. Pawel
Beautiful travel photos. you know you should really make an album in this site and show people (friend, family,site etc ) where you get to travel like I suggested some friends here.
like this gallery:
its free and you can share with us the places you traveled to on the map. takes 3-4 minutes...
(this is NOT a site to replace PBASE, it's for sharing albums with music and send to friends and share here with your photos)
I have take a quick look into your Pbase and I like it a lot. All the galleries are spectacular and I'm not be able to choose only one. You'll see me diving into your collections. A question .. UCD? I have been for 6 months but I haven't any photos. Regards, Maria
Walter, I really like your VIBRANT photography!
So many bright colors and sharp images...
A joy coming back again and again! Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for your visit and comments ! You'll have beautiful work in your gallerys and i'll be back regularly to visit !
Hey again... Well, a few hours later and the situation is slowly fixing itself. Now instead of the blue titles I have the little white "creating thumbnails" boxes appearing and I'm able to open the Original size picture... Aren't computers fun?
Hey Walter. Are you having any problem with uploading images? Today I uploaded 12, and they "appear" in my galleries, but only as a blue title with the regular title underneath. I looked at the help section, FAQs, etc., but no mention of this. Plus I find nothing in the forum. Wassup? D'you have any idea??
Walter, I have a question.
By chance, do you know Herbert Knufken? He is on Pbase and he lives in San Diego.
He left a comment on under one of Sarah's photos recently, so I visited his galleries. I am very impressed with many of his photos ....... especially this recent one at:
Thank you for visiting my photo galleries. Your comments, criticisms and observations are always welcome. (pbase.com/afametlla/quim_a_day_in_bcn)
Thanks so much for visiting my photo gallery and giving me encouragement, Walter! Your galleries are amazing and I like the way you express your idea thru' your camera. I shall come back regularly to learn from you. CM Kwan
I truely love your work, you're very talented!! I've added you to my favourites, so i'll be back more often!!! Greetz, Vivian
TU es invité(e)(pas obligé) à la 4e édition du Challenge PBase...
YOU are invited (no obligation) to the 4th Edition of the PBase challenge...
Thanks Walter for your many visits and encouraging comments! I'm glad the Tamron lens is working out for you and adding to your all ready fantastic line up of photos!!! Keep up the great work and I'll be sure to keep coming back to see what more you add. Kind Regards~Chad
Thanks for the nice comment in my gallery.
Thanks for taking the time to view our galleries. I took the opportunity to look at some of yours, as well. You've got some wonderful images, very creative, good use of complementary colors. I wish you continued success with your photography.
I've enjoyed a look through your galleries... I like you style, you have some superb images.
Thanks for sharing .... Regards, Charlie.

Merry Xmas to you Walter and a Happy New Year
Alles Gute fuer 2008!
Thanks for visit my galleries. You have an interesting site. Diego is fun!!
you've got a very nice diversity of galleries and photographs!
You must be a happy man, living in sunny Southern California ;-)
thanks for your kind comments. Now I will have some time to look at your galleries. Have a good Christmas!!

Thank you Walter for your kind comments..Laos has so many wonderful photographic opportunities..
Wayang Golek! Bagus sekali!
Glad you liked the CAR photos! Terima kash1.
Thanks for the recent comments on my photographs, it is always inspiring to receive positive feedback. Your photos are amazing! I'll keep trying.
Yours is the first comment I got for my photos so it will
always be very special for me.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my gallery and to comment on it.
After viewing your galleries I consider that an honor.
I shot these JA shots in RAW-first time. Now I see why a lot of photogs are shooting Raw.
All the best,
Thanks for the kind words on my gallery, which in turn pointed me to your gallery. I usually make it over to your coast about once a year, and really enjoyed seeing pics of San Diego from your fresh perspective! It's cold and rainy here in Baltimore and I wish I was watching the dogs frolic on Dog Beach... Great galleries, and a great reminder to keep off the beaten path when in San Diego!
Thank you sir, in behalf of the smurfs. I enjoyed your galleries as well. Keep shooting!:)
vielen Dank für deinen netten Kommentar zu meinen Pfeifenseiten. Allerdings hast du dir dazu die am wenigsten geeignete beziehungsweise die optisch am ärmlichsten daherkommende Seite ausgesucht: Das ist nur meine Zwischenstation, von der aus ich die Bilder an ihre richtigen Plätze verteile.
Trotzdem nochmals vielen Dank! :-)
Herzliche Grüße aus good old Germany (deiner alten Heimat?),
Thank you for visiting 'Indonesia from the Passenger Seat 2007'.
The traffic, particularly around Jakarta, will have grown out of all proportion since you were biking it in 1973. I lived in Indonesia from 1972 to 1999 and then 2003 to date. I noticed a big increase when I came back in 2003 and the number of motorbikes in particular grows at an alarning rate. I will continue to take photographs from the passenger seat to the gallery as it passes the time since I seem to spend so long in a car each day.

Thanks a lot for your comments on my pictures. I really enjoyed your galleries : )
Thanks for the nice comments on my Architectural Patterns gallery. You've got some great stuff here as well. I've enjoyed browsing through them and will certainly be back.
Carol Muse Skinner
Walter - thanks for the recent visit to my Abstracts gallery and my new Sunflowers gallery and for the nice comments you left - it lifts my spirits - I really appreciate your taking the time to comment.
Man, every picture of yours is a piece of art. Bravo!
Thanks Walter for your kind comments and votes on my galleries, I´m glad you liked them so much, have a nice sunday, Rosemarie :o)
For some reason, your pictures really cheered me up.
Carol Muse Skinner
Hola Walter. Many thanks for the nice comments you made on some of my galleries. If you don't mind my asking - how did you find my images - out of the millions of photos on pbase??
I have enjoyed looking at your photos - and have added you to my favorites list - so I'll be back.
Hi Walter. Thanks for the nice comments on my prison gallery. I hope they still apply now that I've finished 'construction': adding many more photos and attempting to organize them some. I enjoyed several of your galleries here, especially 'Little Italy'. Keep it up.
How's it going? I hope you're feeling much better again now.
Thought you might want to add Diego to this guy's gallery, I think it's good idea.
Babie is already on there.
many thanks for your kind comment.
I have been in San Diego two years ago for a congress ( with a little trip to La Jolla ) and I've took back beautiful memories and some good pictures.
Great work, your photo galleries are fantastic.
The snake was actually not that big, maybe 1.5m. I took the shot from the window of our hire car, I didn't actually get out, but I could get a nice zoom on it while it looked annoyed. I started a new job in October, so my "way to work and back" gallery should contain some new images soon. I'll have more chance to do the shots after work when the clocks change again and it's still daylight.
Thank you Walter for your very kind comments on my galleries. I haven't looked through all of your pictures yet, I will take my time. Your in my "Favourites" now and I will keep coming back.
It really is a small world! One of my brother's works and lives in Cologne, it's a nice city.
Hi Walter. Thanks for stopping by and for commenting. The wrestling pictures were taken at Arena Coliseo in Monterrey, Mexico. I hope to post some more soon.
Hi Walter. Thanks for visiting and commenting. :)
Hi Walter.... Schoene und interessante Bilder...... Scheint ja wirklich ein neues Hobby von dir geworden zu sein....
Bis hoffentlich bald.
Michael und Phoebe
Not THE (Star Trek's Pavel Chekov) Walter Koenig, :-)... Hey Walter, thanks for your comments on my photoshop_funnies gallery. Glad I was able to make you smile. I've never taken one of those PS seminars, let alone, a PS lesson, but I'm having a ball. I'm a big fan of La Jolla. Nice pics. Be well.
Thanks for the comment! ;)
danke für Deine freundliche Nachricht, aus San Diego von einem Koelner zu hoeren ist etwas besonderes.
Ich habe Deine Gallerien besucht und sofort wurden Erinnerungen wach. Ich war vor einigen Jahren für ein paar Tage in San Diego. Ich erinnere mich an den großen Hafen ohne Schiffe (zumindest habe bis auf zwei Kriegsschiffe ich keine dort gesehen) und an ein ausgezeichnetes Sushi-Restaurant. Auf jeden Fall ist San Diego ganz anders als Koeln, nicht nur weil es am Meer liegt. Vermisst Du Koeln hin und wieder?
Die Fotos aus dem Botanischen Garten gefallen mir ebenfalls sehr gut, ich habe aber noch nicht alles gesehen. Das hole ich in den naechsten Tagen nach.
Viele Gruesse aus Koeln
