Thanks, Ray. I wanted a fading light on a fading Roman empire look.

Incredibly likable image, Tom!
And I like it .
It looks really old.
I've been to Rome, and those Eye-talians did a pretty good job of copying this look.

It does look like something out of medieval times.
Very nice composition indeed.

I'm thinking more like neo-classical than medieval.
The IR lends a strange light on this.

John, the basic light was from a setting sun, which disappeared 15 minutes later.
yes, basically classical - maybe 110 BC to 400 AD.

glad you like; thanks for the comments. the late afternoon, early evening is a good time to visit. shooting across from the pond/lake is also a good shooting spot.

Oh boy.....sorry Tom but I am going to go against the trend here.

You know I love your black and white photography, but:

For some reason most images I have seen looking up, building or mountain, no matter how awesome
it looks in person never seems to translate well to a photograph.

While the basic image, and processing are great the one area that, at least for me takes away from the impact is the perspective.

Please note this is just what I see and my opinion.

Here is your image with the perspective adjusted. Obviously this changes the composition and cuts of some image elements that are key to the over all image. This only meant as a rough example.

Also note some contrast was lost between copying, adjusting and re-posting, this was not intended.

what can I say, Sam?
as you note, I pulled the image at the top to highlight the urn. that is what was of most interest to me. thanks for the long comment.

Excellent composition. I don't share Sam's preferences -- tilting up is a great way to create converging diagonal lines, and you used these to frame the urn nicely. I also like the enhanced texture. Well done.
