Wow! From the GE photos I would have guessed the southern part is older.
Is it made of material that more easily decays?
The southern wall is made of a mix of bricks and stone. Some places a lot of stones have been removed to use it for farming (making walls to keep the soil and protect it). Some places it is completely overgrown with plants so it's would be difficult to see it for the air. Furthermore the southern wall have brick watch towers. The northern wall might have some towers but not much is let and not bricks can be seen.

Hi,

I been looking at these great photos (again!) and was wondering where the photo in reply 17 was taken? Which tower is this at the top of the easy climb :-) Also the photos in replies 89 and 91. I'm trying to pin them down to a particular part of the wall so that when I go there I have a frame of reference.

Thanks,

Dave

PS: I really need to improve my photography - these shots are great!

Excellent quality photos are here about Great Wall. Somebody could you tell me what's the official height of the Great Wall?

you mean the height of the wall or the altitude?
if you mean the height of the wall,
We classify the wall in different levels
the top level is from 6 to 8 meters
but today, some wall disappeared
and some was hidden under earth(less than 1 meter)

There are also parts of the Great wall up to 10(12?)m in height in Gansu and Ningxia.

It took me four months to turn this:

The Great Wall of China

into this:

The Great Wall of China

I took one of my film pictures and had it printed onto a 32" X 50" canvas. The result is a picture that almost looks like an oil painting. The process was as follows:

1. Create a high-resolution (50MB) digital negative from the 35mm film negative.
2. Print a 10" X 12" 'proof' onto canvas to verify the resolution.
3. Print the final version onto canvas and coat with a UV protectant.
4. Stretch the canvas onto a wooden backing frame.
5. Complete final framing.
6. Hang on living room wall and smile eveytime I see it.

Thank you for detailing the process you used to create this gorgeous "painting".
