This is an ancient underground burrial place in the area "Walley of the Kings". Here lays (layed) all the famous pharaohs which ruled Egypt between 1500 BC and 1000 BC.
You are not allowed to use flash in these tombs because that will wear down the paintings on the walls.

Merci pour cette photo. Je me souviens de ces superbes tombeaux.
La perspective est bonne et l'atmosphère est bien restituée.

What an exciting place. I like the golden tone of this shot, and we can see a great deal of details. I would use a vertical compo to include the stairs and the painting on the wall, rather than include the sides. But still a beautiful shot Johan

This is a nice shot. That you couldn't use a flash worked nicely. You still got a nice clear image. And the darkness with the contrast of their lighting gives a really mysterious mood to the place. It really comes across as sacred space. It's a very nice composition with the paintings above and these stairs leading us down and beyond them. And I really love the textures on these old walls. Very nicely done.

Very mysterious shot. You got good depth by showing the stairs going down. You might want to darken the burned out part on the right of the front wall painting by using the "burn" tool on it very lightly. It would bring out the details better. I'd leave the hot spots going down the stairs alone. They are interesting and enhance the mystery.

The "hot-spots" of the internal lights has been well handed keeping the exposure sufficient for details in the paintings on the wall. The symetry of composition is good.
