Greetings from the Critique Club

You found a fine angle from which to photograph this impressive ruin. Whether it was from the Agora or the Acropolis, it is an imposing site. You were able to work with the sky nicely to get it that handsome blue. Your structure wasn't so lucky, as it does appear to be a bit 'hot' or overexposed. The color also looks a bit unnatural.

I'd also suggest that for better composition, the tiny bits of columns to the bottom right of the image could be eliminated. They don't seem to add much to the overall story.

Your unique perspective of this ancient ruin caught the attention of our voters and they rewarded you nicely for this image.

I wish you continued success with your DPC entries.

I like the sky, but the front looks a little blown out.

Detail looks blown-out around the top of the front pillars. Good angle though.

Looks a little over-exposed for my liking. Good angle all the same.

The stone is a bit overexposed. Great angle and crop on the picture.

Very nice. I wish the top of the columns weren't so washed out.

Your midtones are blown out in the clouds and the rock too stark. This could use more post processing but your POV is nice.

Great perspective and complementary coloration. I like the angular quality of the columns, yet their roundness helps add some curvature to the image. The sky color is wonderful and rich. Nice lighting - which helps create the shadows inside the interior of the building which helps draw the sky in.
