vqueen: now that the challenge and guessing process is over: this is the Zeynelbey Tomb in Hasankeyf, Turkey

Even having narrowed the search of this image to Turkey, I was unable to find it. :)

Indrek A: Correct. You have an impressive knowledge of sometimes obscure places.

Not me, Google. :)
This was difficult to find, but the complete sculpture is very interesting!

exp1orer: @ Indrek A, yes it is in Avebury...but it is not one of those of the Stone Circles...it is one of the megalithic stones of the Stone Avenue. Thank to those who voted with good points. To whoever voted this with 1 star...i would like to understand what's the reason.

:o

I googled for a lot of stones in Avebury and didn't found any similar to this one. Not even when I was in Avebury. Damn! :)

In reply to:

Images by Kipper: Any chance of posting an image for comments? Allow, say five comments then post an ‘improved’ image based on the comments that you both feel improved your original, prior to the start of the Challenge.
I may be asking a lot, but this really could be an interesting Challenge. I mean, do I enter an image that I have cleaned up to look its best and allow others to provide improvement comments? Or do I provide the original of that same image and go with the improvement comments and possibly use some of my own improvements should I feel they would enhance my previously final image?
Cheers to you both and thanks – Kipper

I think you should enter the image already at its best and then see if it still can be improved by reading the comments.

On Marginal Garden (second version) in the Framed and chat (edited) challenge (3 comments in total)
In reply to:

pitou250: Agree, a few slight corrections (as there wasnt much that needed to be done on the original) to finesse the image.

for what it's worth - recovering some detail behind the grill is a good thing - but in turn the white became grey. Recovering detail in burned out parts is a very tricky affair that requires a "light touch" - and the danger is that you're happy to find those details and leave them too visible or darken too much. This can be worse than the original burned out part. When this occurs I usually go halfway between the original and new correction - and perhaps add a slight tint of the proper color. (I can't really tell - is this a patch of ground with grass? - in that case yellow/green)

I don't remember, but I think it was sand with maybe some grass. I tried a "light touch", but maybe it was a bit too much. Thanks.

Beyond me there are 19 participants in these challenge and only Pangloss commented on the second version of my picture. I invested my time commenting with care all the images submitted, so I expected a minimum of respect.

In reply to:

RuthC: It is a pity that Janolus did not participate in any of the comments and discussions for this challenge, which was a specific rule for entering. Those of us who did participate could well have benefited from his words of wisdom.... Beneath his dignity???

Maybe entries where the author doesn't participate in the discussions should be disqualified.

Congratulations on a very nice picture from Lisbon, Portugal!
I didn't knew tram rails could be considered a railroad.
