Bonjour Philippe,
Excellent quality of this old photo from the pre-digital era. The colours and lighting are excellent and such ancient ruins always look impressive.

Hello Philippe,
A magnificent capture from your archives. Very well composed with excellent colours and some nicely rendered textural detail.

Hello Philippe,
This is a surprising step back in time of 21 years. I would expect that not much has changed in this ancient place during these years, just a fraction of the time the temple has existed. It's a well composed photo and the colours look quite correctly scanned.
Kind regards,

Hello, Philippe,
I know this place, I was here in 2005 and I have to see here is canges nothing from your visit. Good quality for a scanned photo. Thanks for memories!

Bonjour Philippe,

Considering the extreme age of the ruins and their turbulent history they are still in remarkably good condition. I might try a workshop later using dust and scratches removal to see if it makes much difference, without compromising the fine detail. Tfs!

Ciao caro Philippe, great view of fantastic temple, fine details, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Philippe,

Le cadrage serré met l'endroit en évidence. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du reposoir de Ramses III. La bonne luminosité donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bon dimanche.

Bonjour mon cher ami Philippe,

I hope that our children and grandchilders later yet can see all the lovely architecture.
Our time is totally change, but not positive.
Composition and presentation are very well
Also the nice white stones in foreground is a nice addition.
Very well done, TFS.


Bonjour Philippe,

Il y a bien longtemps qu'il se repose et pourtant il semble encore bien solide comme gardien de cette porte. Belle photo d'archives qui n'a pas pris une seule ride.

Bonjour Philippe
Un joli retour en arrière, une qualité encore bien belle tant dans les détails et la présentation
belle journée

Hi Philippe
A very well composed and photographed shot of these ancient sculptures. I particularly like your chosen point of view, detail and the natural warm colours. Historic subject matter excellently captured and your good scanned job. Congrats
Best wishes

Salut Philippe, très bonne image de cet endroit intéressant, très bien capturé dans cette image intéressante avec une bonne netteté, la lumière, la couleur et la qualité. Très bon et un travail intéressant parfaitement réalisé, mes félicitations mon ami. Merci de partager ce beau travail.

Bonsoir et début heureux de la semaine.
Salutations chaleureuses du sud de l'Espagne.

Bonjour Philippe,

Such photographs are becoming rarer because of the instability in Egypt and fewer tourists are visiting, so it is lovely to see this, pre-digital photograph.
I don't know anyone who isn't fascinated by Ancient Egypt! We look at colossal statues and temples, like these, and contemplate how such wonders could have been produced thousands of years ago, with primitive tools!

Thank you for sharing this,
Bev :-)

Ciao Philippe
questa foto l'avevo saltata.
Una foto di molti anni fa, ma ciò che hai fotografato è molto più antico della foto, sicuramente sta resistendo più di ogni altra cosa che conosciamo della nostra epoca.

Salut Philippe,
La personne qui se penche derrière le coin nous donne une meilleure idée de la dimension des statues.
Après tant de siècles, ce site est encore assez intact.
Un reposoir imposant!
Et pas trop de touristes lors de votre visite.
Amicalement, Paul

Bonjour Philippe,
an archival souvenir from Egypt! I have been to Egypt with a relatively poor photographic equipment so my photos also suffer on the quality but I definitely wanted to share them as well, since it is such a great destination, and I don't think I plan to visit this place again anytime soon.
The quality of the scan is not perfect but it was well composed and showing an impressive fragment of the ruins.
Very well done,

Hello Philippe,
I am going to guess that this was scanned from a print. Nice scan of a lovely photo, the colors have stayed nicely over the years.
