Good morning Johnny,
GREAT. The vast look of this place is shown very well in this photo. Lovely contrasting colors, and DOF.
Another wonderful photo from your trip. Thank you.

Weer eentje voor in de vakantieserie.
Mooi om er een DVD van te maken met mooie overgangen en misschien een muziekje. Kan de hele familie er mee van genieten.
beautiful perspective! The absence of any reference in the foreground makes the pyramids look so small! Love the grey clouds in the sky.

bello pov, colores y tonos,
Nice shot, most stunning view onto the Wonders of The World.
Ive never been to Egypt but would love to see the pyramids, especially inside of them.
PS. wanted to post a small WS for you, but no luck. Just one thing: I would clone out the road here, the small architecture on the left of the pyramid, and that small distortion on the right hand corner (where the white thing stands out).

Jolie vue de ces monuments millénaires. Belle composition.
Must be a great experience to be there. Good picture. The blue cloudy sky and the yellow/orange works very well.
JUST ONE REMARK! YES, YOUR HORIZON IS LEANBING TO THE LEFT! Ha, ha, ha, volhouden en rechthouden.

Great panoramic capture of the famous pyramids, nicely composed, natural colors and very sharp. Moody sky gives more impact to your shot!

Great story John! I love intrigue! This is a great shot! Are they as BIG as you thought? Or smaller? It's real hard to tell just how big in the photo! Sand is sand..... Nice shot!

I like the pov, and also the fact that the pyramids look so small without anything to use as a reference.
The cloudy sky makes it even better.
Nou die heb je van een behoorlijke afstand genomen, toch ?
Mooie foto van die oude huizen. Typisch 4 onder een kap. grappie.
Goede compositie met een mooie lucht.

:-) a real nice view John... the pyramids are seldom presented in this way.
I think I like this, it shows a bit of the area of the buildings. Nice!
Lovely colors and a great threatening sky!

this great perceptive is impressive and makes it possible almost ad infinitum to contemplate the three pyramids and a temple, it seems to me in the distance.
I like the various harmonies on the pyramids which let see the traces of the time which passed since their construction.
The Pharaons almost made a success of their dream, touch immortality.

A different prespective of the grand pyramids. Somehow your POV has diminished them in size and in viewer's mind.
By the way, I think the story about Napoleon's visit to the inner chamber is just that, a story. But it adds to the mythical nature of these magnificient buildings.

how lucky you are visiting such wonderful places and we are lucky that you share your pictures with us.
I like this one a lot, nice POV and the color combination is very nice. I like the division of space makes the sky look endless.

On 2nd thought and since you don't bother answering or thanking your critiques, I change my opinion. This shot is good but in no way exceptional to deserve 62 points. Your copying from history books doesn't impress me.

Something worth seeing & you portray it well! I think the sky helps portray mystery as the pyramids are. Thanks for the comments on my water & rose photos. Been having a great week-end with family. Everyone is sleeping in ths am, & having a fish fry for lunch. Have a great week my friend! :} Don

Wow - our Johnty's been to Egypt. I like your POV here John, the pyramids in the distance give us a good view of the surrounding area - something we don't often see - and the town in the BG. I like the clouds too,

The pyramids seems to look at the city not so far away and say: In our time it was not like that! The view behind look sad... Time is heavy... Pollution perhaps. But near the pyramid the sky is better. I enjoy that play of elements! Angle is nicely select!

Thank you for this presentation.

You were supposed to see the joy of your life above pyramids of the cloud. I have been in this place twice. I was being assured, that there rains it isn't raining. The beautiful sky gave your photographs the charm.

i fully agree with Pierre.. I only think that when he pyramids stood a little bit more out of the center from te picture.. it would be a different photograph
