Old House at the Warehouse Castle of Kabaw where Berbers used to store their grain and oil.
Kabaw is a Berber settlements along the tops of Nafousa Mountain, in the way from Jado towards Nalut, and ultimately down to the desert road towards Ghadames. It is an old mountain village, rich in traditional architectural buildings and narrow roads along the cliffs.

These old buildings are very nice.
You have done a good light management.
The sharpness is good also, and you have managed to keep the focus on the building.

A good capture of this very attractive old stone built house. I like very much the well rendered tones and textures and the contrast with the dark blue sky. Thanks for sharing.

We get very a few pictures out of Libya, here see we very nice one of the Berber houses, perhaps very old but in very well condition, certainly the walls
What a quality and sharpness and clarity, we see the different colours very nice.
Nice perspective and real colours.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the architecture of the old house. It is well framed. The late morning light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

A very archaic and poor architecture which has its appealing in this dry environment. I'm impressed by the excellent clarity of your photo where every detail is clearly visible. The colours too are well saturated and natural reating an incisive photo so interesting and fine to see.

I like a lot the 3D effect on this particular architecture. This is due to the efficient sharpness and depth. Light is quite pleasant and natural as well. Effective and well presented!
