Great holmertz 2020-02-04 11:45

Hello Malgo,
This photo shows how much a smart and radical cropping can mean. The original view, which I of course immediately recognize, is very beautiful, but you created a more original and interesting composition by cropping like this. However, the first sentence of the note doesn't make sense. I think it should have been something like: "...one of the most charming..." places is "...situated at the center...". And maybe you should decide if it's Esfahan or Isfahan. ;-)
I think this square should count among my personal "7 wonders" of places I have seen. (Petra and the Potala are among them)
Have a nice evening,
Gert

Talking To holmertz: Editing

Hi Gert,

Thank you for your words. Yes, the note of course had no sense. Quite often when I edit something, the whole line is cut off, not only the letter or word that I want to change. Not always I notice it. It happened here. As to Esfahan and Isfahan, in Wikipedia it is Isfahan and I am used to such a name, on TE it is Esfahan. In Google Map is also Isfahan. Isfahan (Persian: اصفهان‎, romanized: Esfahān)), historically also rendered in English as Ispahan, Sepahan, Esfahan or Hispahan.

Cheers

MAlgo

Transcriptions from Arabic or Persian alphabets are hopeless. We had almost daily problems at my office. What is the "capital" of Iraqi Kurdistan? Arbil, Erbil or Irbil? And a French transcription is usually not the same as an English, Swedish or a Polish. It's easy to get confused.
