The scale here is extraordinary. The exposure is so perfect. There's a lot of warmth in this shot even though it's a BW. Great stuff here. Cheers.

Impressive shot! It looks like Ancient Greece. Great composition with the sunlight and the little man walking between those huge columns. Excellent !

Beautiful shot! I love the figure that gives a great sense of scale.

this one makes me think to old painting of Hubert Robert, (but in his landscape the column are ruined).

Dave said...

As always, great control of the light. I don't know if it was serendipitous or designed, but I think the inclusion of that woman makes it.
