Dziękuję za sympatyczne komentarze. Cameron, w twojej uwadze jest odrobina racji. Przy zmianie rozdzielczości zdjęcia pogorszeniu ulega nieco jego ostrość. Użycie od czasu do czasu filtra wyostrzającego jest wskazane, o czym nie zawsze pamiętam. Pozdrawiam.

Z pełnym przekonaniem 10, poza tym ta menora taka niepozorna, a taka ciężka. Zdumiewające.

Świetny opis...w 100% przewodnikowy. Zawsze galerie z tego miejsca mnie nudziły, a tu przystępnie zaprezentowany temat. Niektórym zdjęciom brakuje jednak trochę ostrości...może warto poprawić w jakimś edytorze??? Pozdrawiam

Menora rzeczywiście waży ponad pół tony. Tyle tylko, że do jej zrobienia użyto "tylko" 45 kilogramów 24 karatowego złota.

Ta menora ma naprawdę 600 kg ?
