    Re: I have seen your latest pics

    I prefer either:
    I have seen... and they are...
    or
    I saw... and they were...

    The combination of "I have" and "they were" seems wrong to me. Or at least not as natural.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
