Kairouan is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is an important centre for Islamic and Quranic learning, and thus attracting a large number of Muslims from various parts of the world, next only to Mecca and Medina. The holy Mosque of Uqba is situated in the city. Old scanned shot.

Light conditions were not so favorable, but when it come to the question to shoot or not, I'd take this scene, definitely. As a tourist, one not having much time to wait for best conditions, and strong light over white houses in a desert aea, especially hard task to balance.
Good DOF to show the daily life there, and well scanned the old stuff.

This picture was taken 9 years ago. It's part of the history. Thanks for showing.

I love the dated feel of this picture, it could have been taken anytime back in the 70ties or 80ties.
Good elevated POV, giving a nice overview over the Medina.
have a good day

Great panoramic view of this beautiful city. with part of its wall and its white houses within its walls. The image shows well the rhythm of daily life in the city.
Have a nice day.

Nice old shot, Miguel, with the beautiful old city wall stretching through. Nice to see that contrasted with the modern vehicles moving about as well. You found a great vantage point for this one!

Interesting panoramic view of a Tunisian city, well composed and presented

nice the view of this section of the city with some part of it to overexposure.I like the created depth as the architectural style of the constuctions.

This view could not have changed much in recent decades, and the scanning process has given the picture a much older look than the mere nine years that have passed. If the cars hadn't been there, this could have been taken for a picture from the 1950's or even earlier.

Old is Gold is not just an old saying,it is very pretty evident from this shot.Nice image, sharp with good details, well saturated colors and nice composition. Well done.TFS.

the lighting was very un-cooperative for you, but what i do enjoy about the photo is the subject itself. We don't get to see alot of photos from Tunisia outside of the main touristy areas.
so this is refreshing. its great to view the architecture and the style of the city.

interesting image showing many details of this historical town. in some aspects the structure remember the moroccan towns, but small details are different.

Hola Miguel, también he visitado éste país que me gusta mucho por su gente amable y por los paisajes extraordonarios! El Khairouan me ha impressionado y tengo algunas fotos también.
Tu foto es muy bonita y panoramica!

An interesting view over these ancient reservoirs. A fine composition with a pleasing balance to it. Very good light. They seem very well maintained.
Have a nice day,

Un écran de vitrine très belle et attrayante. L'exposition est très bien fait. Très bien.
chrisvek (6997) 2013-02-13 12:35
Very good panoramice shot and great colors.Nice depth and great POV.Nice job!
mirosu (10186) 2013-02-14 2:23
The composition with the entry gate and the wall around the town is very good, the green trees in Fg are in very good contrast with the white houses. Only the exposure is not the best. IMO, at least as I can see on my monitor, it is a bit overexposed. Allow me to deduct one point.
fabianoleite (9162) 2013-02-15 13:20
Interesting and nice place, the typical architecture is very well shown there, the perspective and framing are great. Nice work, congratulations!

The POV is very effective. The composition is superb. Colors and light are good for a scan from a print. Thanks for preserving this gem digitally.
