Hi JeanPaul
The famous Egypt architecture since 5000 year
Good picture

Impressive, postcardesque view of the Sphinx in all its amazing size and setting. The inclusion of people in the shot adds such a fantastic idea of scale.

I would have preferred a different POV so that the head of the Sphinx and the far pyramid didn't occupy the same part of the photo.

Best regards!
