Very beautiful photo ,like walking over of water its very nice,best regards,enayat.

Hi Derek, This whole issue has been a major disappointment for me; probably my own fault for spending too much time enjoying every aspect of what made Panoramio so appealing to people like us. I can't help but feel a major resentment toward Google for their lack of respect and disregard of Panoramio's contributions to their viewers, and of course, their deep pockets. I certainly don't mind sharing my photos with the world, but I believe Google has lost all interest in retaining quality photographs. The only positive point I can see in leaving photos here is them being viewable in GE.

If you are still considering a different photo sharing site, it seems that a lot of the serious and/or professional photographers on this site have already joined Ipernity and consider it to be the best alternative; several others have joined 500px. I will most likely check out these two options in hopes of staying in touch with some mighty fine people (like you) that I've had the privilege to get to know here on Panoramio.

You will always hold a special place in my heart.....

Thank you Carlee for your kind words. I will miss your photos and sense of humour as well. This has been a great sharing site for so many years. At th is point in time I an not sure where to go. Best wishes, Derek

Many thanks my dear panoramio friends, I will miss you all :-)
