[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Petra is more than two thousand years old city located in Jordan. All houses of the city were carved in the rocks where it is located. This photo was taken in the one kilometer narrow natural splitting resulted gorge that leads people to Petra city. The two rocky sides of the gorge are more than 50 meters high. This along with the dim light makes photography there a little bit hard, since the shutter speed would be slow. However, it is Really amazing.

Hello Sonia,

This is a very interesting photo, especially with the person curled up in the edge of the rock. Looks like a very peaceful place to relax. I like the angle of the shot, to show the height of the rocks and it gives the site a size perspective. It also has wonderful details and the light is well managed.
Thank you for sharing.

Hi Sonia,
Nice texture of these red rocks.
I like the solitaire person sitting in the appropriate place where depth is shown.
Well composed and neatly presented.

Bonjour Sonia
Petra is certainly one of the places I should like to visit more.
I like your original shot because of the perfect point of view, of the beautiful light and tones and for, and it is not the least, the young people sitting on the rock both because it gives human life to the landscape and also because it gives the scale of the clif.
Have a good week

Hello Sonia

What a great place of history and prophecy of things yet to come. I like the lone woman who is deep in thought. A very unique image. Nice
