Well the camera you had back then delivered an excellent dynamic range, made the most of the diffuse light and had a very nice DOF - definitely one to be proud of.
So often the temptation is to show "everything" in a shot, I like the way you've told us about the larger scene by restricting your view to just a fragment of it.

Love the angle that you took this with a peek a boo dof, while the colums offer a bit of history with their carvings.
Good use of pp, the result is great

Excellent photograph of the columns. Great lighting as well as shadows. The black and white really brings out the details of the sketches on the columns....

Il y a une ambiance mystérieuse dans cette photo, ambiance renforcée par l'utilisation du N/B. On croirait une scène du film "meurtres sur le Nil". J'admire l'équilibre de la lumière dans cette composition.
Boa noite Carol
You captured very well these columns...it is not easy to get the light you have here. It is a very good photo of a an invredible architecture and culture. Good B/W work and excellent note.
You will be able to make great photos with any camera , you have a good and singular to touch things and look them.

Yes, a great shot. It goes to show that what really matters is not the camera but the eyes that are behind it. Very well done. May be you could have increased the contrast a bit during the post-processing.

I like the POV in this image. The subject itself is awesome. I am just thinking that the contrast should be moved up a bit. My taste ofcourse. Still nice work

I see that your good eye for photography comes from long time ago... As Rew wrote there´s a nice dynamic range.
The vertical composition is appropriate and in a narrow frame you 'show' us a lot.

this shot is beautiful and I also love the choice of black/white.
Mighty columns at Karnak, I've been there 2 times and it's always amazing to see them.
Very well done, thanks and have a nice evening
