    The Bahai its a religion founded in Persia (now Iran) and, like other monoteist religions, have in Israel 2 important spirituall places. The first one its in Akko where Bahá'u'lláh (the founder) was buried. The second place its in Haiffa where there gardens are
    This is what I know, for more information:

    Looks like a lovely place to visit, the colour in your work is particually impressive.

    Thanks for sharing.

    thanks Robert,
    I'm surprised about your critiques because I took the photos in very difficult light.. and I tought that the results aren't the best
    thanks again
     
  6. what a nice series
    you did a great job
    it was hard light and think that most could use some BRIGHTENING...
    like shadows and highlights

    wonderful compositions
    it's just an issue with DYNAMIC RANGE, of course

    thanks Greg, I dont understand a lot of dynamic range. i know what it means but no more. The only thing that I thought when I was there it was to overexpose a bit the pictures. Today I read in an article of Ken Rockwell that if you underexpose your pictures its loose from the color saturation... but it seems to work well on mine pictures
