Yep, really like this (apart from the area Dustin pointed out..... although I would have missed it if he hadn't LOL), some lovely work, I would love to have some scenery like that to photograph!

the last 2 edits look great walter.

i like them both actually, the sharp and soft-focus both work well with this scene.

He-he, Mark!

I can understand that a man living on the edge of the Sahara-desert wishes he had some snow-scenes to shoot, and you can have it all, Mark - Take the whole lot. I'm so tired of the snow now, after nearly 6 months of winter I ache after some hot desert-sand style weather....

This goes to show that the grass always looks as if it is greener on the other side!

Thanks for your kind comment, Mark!

Definitively, AR - definitiv. Without input and some 'slap' across once in a while, one wouldn't know wher one stands at all.

Thank you, donp, for stopping by and commenting this scene.

LOL, I'm yet to see any real desert, just traveling from Alexandria to Cairo, but not the proper thing. We were meant to be going last month to stay somewhere in the 'proper' desert and would have really enjoyed the new scenery. As it is, I'm in a major city, crowded and not very interesting to my eye. I am just about 0.5km from the Mediterranean, but not a nice beach kind of area. Can you tell I'm in a complaining mood tonight? I miss having a car so I can go out to places I want when I want, I hope to get one soon and then possibly will find somewhere good to shoot.

Gee if I was in Cairo or Alexandria there would be every nick and cranny to photograph. Much more interesting than the nooks and crannies around here.

Nice remakes Walter - But you know what? I don't give a damn - I loved the original!!!

I understand why YOU did them over; if I was in the same position of taking such a shot, I too would want perfection - Nevertheless - I'm not, so I just appreciated the original...

(Not that the remakes aren't just as good or better - but I can't bring myself to pixel peep on such a masterpiece.)

Walter, I'm sorry for not commenting this stunning shot earlier... must have missed it somehow...

...your newest edits are amazing, and as Dustin said, I like the sharp AND the soft version
