Dear TS Jeung, I remember seeing these amazing photos before, but they had much more views. Did something happen to your gallery?

Also I have a request... why do you make your images so small? I mean too few pixels? Lots of valuable detail are lost! Could you perhaps use bigger images?

TS Jeung on May 12, 2012

Dear Konstantin Khrapko, Thank you for your visiting again to my gallary. As I mentioned in the first page, all of my previous photos were deleted by mistake. Therefore, I uploaded them again.

Regarding the photo size, it is usaal to load a small zise to the web only to show it, not for visitor's using it for their purpose. Regards, TS Jeung

Ooops! This is a big loss for Panoramio! Your pictures represented Burma so perfect.

Regarding the size - I can't agree.. Thieves I think are already saturated with our photos. THere are too many large sized images available free on the web. I think the small risk of your photo being stolen is well overweighted by the pleasure fellow Panoramians will enjoy while seeing your outstanding pictures full size! Please consider bigger size! Last not least, I strongly suspect that PANORAMIO AND Google Earth give priority to large when placing them on the map and assigning them a map score (i.e. which images look bigger on the map)!This is very important. I will give your images stars and likes to try to restore the glory of your gallery!

Thank you for your interests in my photos and advice for Panoramio.

Among tons of photos taken in Myanmar, I have uploaded only few in Panoramio and have no intention to upload the full sized photos as I just wanted only to show some for the visitors (not for their using my photos).

TS Jeung - how sad I am to see that all of your photos were deleted by mistake due to the really confusing google process on Panoramio (one of many reasons I will not "upgrade" my account.) I always remember finding this photo on what used to be the 'Fresh Uploads' tab a few minutes after you first uploaded it, on Christmas night 2007, and being the first of the scores of pages of comments that it received. It was a magical find that night, and continues to be a very special photo.

It is so disappointing that so many will now never have the chance to discover this photo. But thank you so much for re-uploading!
