Great delic 2008-05-04 14:58

Beautiful alpenglow color on the cone. Looks quite imposing the way you composed the picture. Checked out your flickr site. Images look oversharpened, perhaps because you have resized them small without altering the sharpening settings. I didn't like the lay-out of flickr and decided to have my stuff on zenfolio.com.

hello michelle

well, at the time when Ceasar was referring to Belgians as barbarians, just a couple centuries separated the 'civilized' romans from the times when THEY themselves were making outright human sacrifices (to the Gods). human sacrifice for religious reasons was one of the criteria that Ceasar used to classify peoples as 'barbarians'. not that gladiator battles were much different [than earlier religious sacrifices] or even modern day death penalties or tribunal executions. so, by that criteria alone, we can safely consider ourselves barbarians ;) i believe, greeks had a different notion: ANYONE who was not hellene was a BARBARIANS :)) and our dear george (polonaise) here accurately observes that we all are just that - APES :))

cheers from across the ocean or should i say oo-ha-oo-ha-oo-ha!!! ;)

Dear Kristaps, yeah, the planet of the APES ! o)

I have finally deleted Alice. Did not feel right enough. I've done a conversion in B/W and that is already better, so I may post it. Sorry about the pains you took for your critique...women hmmm....:-)))
sometimes are a bit "la donna è mobile".

You are in my favorites you know, my hidden list:-), don't understand why they limit it to 50...
A big smile and thanks again for your thoughts

no problem, michele. i have deleted one or two (or even three...) myself ;)) so, no gender bias in your action either.

as to favorites: thank you, i feel honored. by the way, the limit now is 100 not 50. they increased it some time ago.

cheers,
kristaps
