Les tres pirÓmides del Caire, bÚ, en realitat, les sis pirÓmides. Les tres petits de davant sˇn de les tres dones del faraˇ Micerinos, la primera que es veu Ús d'aquest faraˇ i les altres dues de Kefren i Keops. Sˇn net, pare i avi.
The sis pyramids of the Cairo. The three small were the tomb of pharaon Micerinos wifes, then in order we see here, the big pyramids were for Micerinos, Kefren and Keops.
The biggest, Keops pyramid, have 2000 stones of 2 tones each one. Can you believe?
A wonderful and magic place.
Note. I used polarizer lens to take this photo.

Nice. I sent also the six pyramids on TE. Very interesting to see another point of view. Thanks !

The sky is so saturated that the pyramides blow out from the background. Good shot Jordi.

The contrast between and blue and the brown is well-seen. The way the pyramids overlap each other was well-balanced. A good picture.

Le ciel est Ó mes yeux trop saturÚ, d'ailleur les nuages sont devenu bleu, c'est la raison pour laquel je ne mets pas la note maximal.
Pour le reste c'est une belle photo avec un bon angle de prise de vue .

What a beautiful combination of the colours. The piramides makes an exellent composition on the magnificent background of the sky. The polarizer makes miracles.

Excellent angle that shows all pyramids. But I cannot say I enjoy the extreme greenish blue saturation too much , I am also a polarizing filter user but here I am under the impression that the blue has become too much green . Best regards - Izzet

Una preciosa manera de ver la totalidad de las pirßmides, juntitas y bien compactas, con un cielo que acompa˝a. Saludos.

Though they don't look at all the way I remember them - apart from the colors being much paler, there seemed to be the entire population of the city the day I visited the pyramids - I love your photo. Colors are exaggerated and if only you could've lost that car on the right, the picture would be completely surreal. And that's exactly what I like about it.

A place on my list to visit for sure!! ... Others have mentioned the over-saturation on the sky, the real issue is that is hard to appreciate the subject since the strong blue forces the eyes to go up and therefore makes the photo "uncomfortable" to look at. Also there is a noticeable deal of noise and color artifacts on the sky (lack of smoothness) that are competing in a negative way with the texture of the stones IMO.
