[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The city of Pompeii is a partially buried Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania, in the territory of the comune of Pompei. Along with Herculaneum, Pompeii was destroyed and completely buried during a long catastrophic eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius spanning two days in the year AD 79. The eruption buried Pompeii under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of ash and pumice, and it was lost for nearly 1700 years before its accidental rediscovery in 1749. Since then, its excavation has provided an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city at the height of the Roman Empire.

The picture shows one of the intact rooms where sunlight beams through with such an amazing effect.

Hope you like.

Hi Steve,

after a long time since my last time, the return with an image like this couldn't be better.The not much light was handled well and the present OEs break up a little the sense of darkness, creating a pleasant contrast and don't damaging the overall view.Good the composition and the details, especially in the building's vault.It's a pity this magnificent place, Pompeii, is inexorably crumbling to dust.



Very good work with the lights. I like your foto.

  • Great

Hi Steve,
Very informative NOTE that takes us to the ages, the sun light beam has created more round and square effects, it is well composed and exposed, TFS.
