Littel Water Canal - Ghadames is one of the most ancient city oases of the Libyan Sahara. They told us that there are no people living. Going beside the tourist routes you could find some water canals which are floating little rice fields.

Hi Achim, I like the composition & your great chose of POV, the reflection of the palm in the water has been very well captured, there is superb light & excellent colour, with the hight of the walls I am wondering how you got out, kind regards Wilson.

Very good idea for the beautiful shot, good framing and very nice reflection of the little Water Canal.
Good light and very pretty blue sky..!
Have a nice day.

A fascinating view up the canal, with one half of the frame bathed in light and the other in shadow. I like the depth obtained here and the effectiveness of the low angle POV. The shadow on the right enhances further. Well captured.

Good afternoon, Mr. President, let my say, that this is a well composed photo. I like the reflection of the palm on the water of this narrow canal. So, my vote is going to you!

Nice symetric view of this small canal surrounded by old walls. It reminds me the traditional "falaj"'s going down the Jabal Akhdar in the Sultanate of Oman and which are sometimes very similarly looking. I like the contrast in light from the left to the right part.
Thanks for sharing!

A very nice and well composed photo with a good reflection in the water canal. A difficult photo to take with one side easy to overexpose and the other side the other way around. You managed it really well and also got good colors.
Is that an auto portrait on the right side?

Hi Achim, good capture of the water canal, well composed and a great POV looking along the gulley with the tree reflected in it.

herausforderndes Licht mit der Sonne rechts und dem Schatten links. Gut gelöst. Durch diese starken Unterschiede stört die zentrierte Wasserlinie nicht, der dunklere Teil scheint mehr vom Bild einzunehmen. Schöner Effekt, wie es auf die Palmen zuläuft.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Well done. TFS.

interesting place and perspective, fine reflection of palm. Well done photo.

You chose an excellent POV so you could include the reflection of the palm tree in the narrow strip of water. You could have had all kinds of difficulties with the contrast in light, but I'm guessing you exposed for the bright side and brought the detail out of the shadows later. Very good work.

Very nice perspective! The lights are also great, creating nice shadows and beautiful colours!

Excellent composition, with a great contrast. The light is perfectly managed, it's very simple, but it's well done too.

Beautiful and interesting hand made canal, beautiful image too Achim, your play with the palm reflection and your POV and light management are really good and the image is beautiful and with a nice and pleasant atmosphere, compliments.

Achim, j'aime la bonne composition avec ce canal dans lequel le ciel et un palmier se reflètent. Quand on sait l'importance de l'eau dans ces pays, on comprend qu'on fait tout pour l'économiser et la rendre utile jusqu'à la dernière goutte.
