Keith, they were all unconsciously artists, those ancient Greeks!

Nice, evocative shot.

Sorry, Keith. You seem to have made a mess of the processing. Whilst the image is evocative, as Rob comments, it also portrays a major, unnatural effect of the use of flash, that is, partially blown objects in the near foreground, which are unnaturally bright, and partially blocked shadows further away, which are unnaturally dark.

Hope no offense is taken.

Not at all.

The room was essentially a dark cave lit by an intense single shaft of light. Time exposure with no flash used.

The image is what it is, evoking a dark cave lit by a single shaft of light.

The criticism still applies, whether artificial light from the camera, or artificial light from another source. I incorrectly assumed you used flash. However, since you used a time exposure, presumably with tripod, then bracketing exposures for merging to HDR could have produced a more natural result.  ;)

I understand the point you are making but I don't get the feeling of a shaft of light just rather unbalanced lighting and a bright area that needs some texture. I think the viewer needs some help to see what you saw but of course I might be being dense, I am often am.

But the light was totally unbalanced. The shadows were virtually impenetrable and those areas that were lit were intensely so. It's almost as though I was in a cave room with an intense directional light source ;-)

My aim was to capture what I saw and experienced rather than a sanitised, perfectly balanced image and histogram. Had I painted the scene I would have taken precisely the same approach.

What you saw must have been perfectly balanced in accordance with the lighting conditions and the way your brain and eyesight react to such lighting. It cannot be otherwise. I wouldn't call that 'sanitised'.  ;)

Your processing of the image just seems a bit odd to me. The large cylindrical object in the foreground (perhaps a well) looks like a modern piece of smooth concrete. It's out of character with the rest of the scene, and causes some confusion. At least it confused me. I thought you'd used a flash and overexposed the outer surface of the well, or whatever it is.

However, if you're satisfied with the portrayal of the scene, that's what counts. No problem. I just felt like communicating my impression.

Again, lovely colours in those old properties.

Have you been shooting any of your 'found paintings' close-ups of unidentifiable subjects in Greece?

Keith,
I think all proud housewives should hang this photo on their wall to remind themselves what might happen if they are not diligent in cleaning the house and sweeping the floor.  :D  :D

Both shots are nice, Erik, and appear to accurately portray a natural, mountainous scene, which is well worth visiting. What's lacking is a deeper, symbolic meaning. If it's purely spectacular landscapes you're after, then go to the Himalayas.  ;)

For various reasons I ended up in Siena yesterday and had to wait two hours in the old city with nothing to do. It was very relaxing, and the clouds went away as soon as I started walking around. Had a blast with my 5MP phone.

While taken some commercial stuff, I saw this building in Coconut Grove, kind of out of place and forgotten in time. The building is the Virrick Park Branch Library. Nikon D800 24-85mm.
