This late afternoon view of Aleppo (Halab in Arabic) was taken from my hotel room. The square minaret in the distance is of the grand Omayyid Mosque

Aleppo is one of those places I want to see some day, and this good is great appetizer. I hope by the time I visit it, the hotel you stayed in is still standing, this is the kind of view I'd like to have. Thanks for posting.
(And what an improvement on the original version!!)

What a difference the rescan has made to this picture. The arrangements of the rooftops is quite interesting and the colors are superb.
Thanks for sharing

Well that re-scan has worked a treat, the difference is quite unbelievable. It reminds me of your before and after Shibam image, also very well done.
I like the packed frame, so full of different angles and shapes, there are three distinctly different minaret shapes as well.
Quite a view, hope the bed was soft.

Your work on this slide has produced a very pleasing image -- an also an important record. I wonder how much will have changed in the intervening years.

Hi Steve, what a fantastic scan! And of such an interesting place. The sky is absolutely beautiful, I love that bluish hue throughout the photo. Excellent sharpness and detail. TFs and I hope you're enjoying your weekend, Lisa.

A rescanning can really make a difference. New equipment, better skills: like a completely new picture. This time you have really captured the light and the warm tones of the sandstone buildings. Aleppo is a remarkable place, and I envy you who managed to find a room with a view. I remember staying in a dark windowless cubicle. It's those traumatic experiences that stick for years ;-)

You chose a good POV to take this shot. A nice photo with a well managed framing and superb colors. Well done!
