[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another collage from Orhei Vechi. On the upper picture picturesque cross - Cross of the Wishes, a stone cross particularly cherished by local inhabitants who usually turn around it three times, kiss the flower (symbol of the spiritual power) carved in its centre and leave a coin at its feet.
In the lower one, you can see the bell tower of the cave monastery I showed yesterday. Farther away is the cross. Finally, in the middle one the way to Adormirii Maicii Domnului church – built in 1905 and restored to worship in 1996 after being abandoned in Soviet times – the last part of my excursion at Orhei Vechi. (I will show it in Workshop later)

See Bigger beta picture.

Hi Malgo,
Well presented this interesting location with these 3 photos, well made collage, nice perspective with the path and good close up with the view of the cross, nice light and colors, tfs.

Hello Malgo,
Another interesting set of images from this little known country, to me anyway. Your notes are a useful accompaniment in this respect. All well realised with good colours and sharpness. My preference composition wise is the bottom one.

Good morning Malgo,
Today we are neighbours on the site, but I have only one photo while you give us another collage. They all show us a nice and slightly unusual scenery, best seen in the middle photo. They are all well composed and well exposed and I like them all.
Kind regards,

Hi Malgo,
Fascinating group of pictures showing the river flowing deep down. Great views on top of high river banks. Church in the distance looks interesting too.

Hello Malgo
Another superb collage from your gallery. Fine view of nature with historical buildings in the distance. All the compositions are striking and eye catching with fine colours and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day.

Ciao Malgo,

Encore une fois un très beau triptyque qui nous raconte une histoire. Les trois paysages sont magnifiques tout en montrant trois situations bien différentes. Superbe lumière dans les trois.



Ciao Malgo
c'è una bella differenza tra la vista interna e il paesaggio che circonda questo luogo.
Bella e interessante serie di foto, hai suscitato interesse ancora una volta.

Hello Malgo,
One of the very few places in Moldavia I've already heard about.
It also seems a bit like this is the crater of an old volcano.
Wonderful landscape pictures with a different sublime sky each time.
Regarding the ban on taking photos inside the church: Is that not really common with Orthodox churches?
Best regards, Paul

Hi Malgo
A good triple view from Moldovo, a country that previously I was only familiar with through Chris's photos.

Hi Malgo,

The collage is well done. The point of view is showing the details of the different areas of the Orheiul Vechi. The light is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.


Hello again,

Yet, another good composition.

Best Wishes,

Hello Malgo.
A beautiful day of sun and a beautiful sky, to travel these beautiful landscapes, with that breadth of horizons, very curious as the river has been digging the wall making that half circle.
A good color that gives strength to the image.
Magnificent management of brightness and sharpness, to enjoy the details.
Well seen and done. I like it.
You have a good day.
Very best regards.

Hi Malgo

It's nice to see what this area looks like in Spring with green grass and blue skies. Spectacular place & I am so glad you made the effort to see it, even though Moldova was not high on your bucket list, or most people's for that matter. I was right next door to it in Romania and looking for somewhere to go, so it was a logical decision to head from Suceava to Balti. Tfs!
