To macjake: Wadi Rum

Hi Craig

There is no temple at Wadi Rum that I know of. I was the only one in the tent that I had, but they have 3-4 beds for family groups. Food was included in the price but like most of North...

To ifege: Elevation

Hi Ian

The sky is natural. Sinaia is 880 metres above sea level and far from any factories or heavy traffic that produce smog. Have a look at images of high elevation places like La Paz, Kunming,...

To Fis2: Removal of Image

Hi Chris

If you ask Viviane nicely what the problem is, she might be agreeable to reinstate your deleted photo if some conditions are met. Sometimes you just need to express something in your own...

To jmdias: Merzouga

Hi Jorge

Erg Chebbi is at Merzouga so it probably is the same place. 'Erg' is Moroccan for sand, and that big red sand hill is Erg Chebbi just east of Merzouga.

To Royaldevon: Nanjing

Hi Bev

I think it's mostly light pollution from all the neon. I never had any problem breathing and in fact the next few days rewarded me with blue skies! That said, I declined job offers in...

To mcmtanyel: Ishtar Gate

Hi Murat

There is a small part of Ishtar Gate in Istanbul Museum too featuring lions. I'd hazard a guess that in return for the German archaeologists allowed to remove ancient relics from Turkey...

Spectators of Old

Hi Bev

Damage

Hi Jorge

That makes sense because the Protestant Anglican Church championed by Cromwell was iconoclastic much like Muslims today. Even today there is only 1 statue of Jesus in Westminster...

Sicily

Hi Gert

I did actually look at all the workshops before critiquing. The note said you arrived after the pigeons had left, so I was wondering if there was something else amusing the boy later? And...

To ktanska: Workshop

Hi Kari

Taken with a 200 mm lens using auto focus. Now I focus manually because I can't rely on pin sharp images using auto-focus. Possibly a bit of camera shake as well that has been magnified...

Capriana

Hi Viviane

Fethiye

Hi Viviane

Another place name that needs cleaning up.

Fethiye is in Mugla Province so that is the correct one to use. Oludeniz and Gocek are separate, nearby towns with their own folders....
