Roman Temple

Moving in a little bit closer to the Roman Temple in the centre of Evora, to see the fine detail of the Corintian columns.

As with yesterday's picture, this is straight out of the camera except for being resized for uploading.

I have to say I like this one better without the modern clutter in the background. Good work with the light!
I like the perspective and the great texture detail in this image.

Cool one again Ellie. The blue sky seems to be resting above these massive pillars...

I LOVE the point of view, Ellie.

Did you think about cloning out that tip of a column on the right???

This is a stunning POV, I have been in Greece once, love those tall pillars, this is Portugal and I know this is amazing, so much nice architecture left, thanks for sharing!!
This is super, Ellie. Love the angle and the great detail. The sky is a beautiful backdrop. (:o)

What we were discussing. Much less of it - some still showing against the clouds.

What do you use for sharpening?

The picture itself - composition etc is great.
Ah, seeing these absolutely classic Corinthian capitals and columns reminds me of my days at Art College, struggling with the boring "bible" of architectural detail by Bannister Fletcher!
Very nice shot cutting out all clutter to concentrate the eye on the detail and majesty.
Re me and Louis, have you still got SC's own sharpening switched on in your preferences? It could be doubling your already sharpened work.
Very nice perspective shot. I like the angle
Think I agree with Martin Ellie about the lack of modern things in the background. Lovely angle and perspective.

This really stands out against the helpful sky. Good texture in the stonework. I think I would have cloned out the column sticking its head in from the right.
Nice angle..makes the structure look all the more imposing !

Fantastic capture Ellie. Those Romans knew how to make a building look beautiful and long lasting
Good capture Ellie, some fine old columns there.
I like the perspective and the clearness in the stone! Good details!
