Hi Chris
You captured the colours and patterns of the reconstructed Ishtar gate so well, especially considering the fact that the light in the museum must have been challenging.
The visitors' heads among the lions create an amusing effect.
Best wishes
Ps. You asked me how close the car was to the cliff as I took the first photo I posted from Tajikistan. At that point it was quite safe. But as we reached river Panj (that's over 300 km of the journey) the situation changed and it was quite scary at times, especially because the driver was driving as fast as possible.

Default To GyurMaster: tone correction

Thank you György,
I have made several small adjustments of the colours. I decided on this tone after it had been too blue, earlier too red. Someone complained of an earlier photo that the grass was too blue, which was probably true. On my monitor this grass looks fairly natural and so does the sky. Maybe it's not perfect and not looking quite digital, but to me it's okay for a picture from 39 years ago. I think for this I used a Canon AE-1, which was a reasonably handy amateur camera for that time.
Best wishes,

Its beyond doubt that the Kodachrome colours are better than in case of my cheapo or expired films. Or at least better than most of them. Canon AE-1 is not in my collection so far, but that's not good this way!
