[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Pompeii is in Campania, Italy, not far from Naples. Its major attraction is the ruined ancient Roman city of the same name, which was engulfed by Mt. Vesuvius in AD 79.

This city is an example of how some of the properties have prevailed even through such a disaster as the contents of a volcano erupting over it.

Good choice for this theme :) Pompeii is a fantstic place and it prevailed very well !
Regarding the picture, I like how the column in the left cut the well/pool (?). The wall in the background is representative of the aging of this place and how it prevail in the time...

Hi Steve,

The subject is well framed. The point of view is showing the details and colors of some ruins of Pompeii. It is a good contribution to the Prevail theme, it has survided the centuries. Have a nice day.


Hello Steve,
Very good composition in lines and shapes and textures of a very interesting place. A pleasure to view. Best wishes.

Good subject for this weeks theme Steve. I love all the different textures and tones here all sharply in focus. The composition works well with the curves of the pillar and the well. The vertical format is a good choice too. I like how you have captured a little bit of green moss on the background wall to contrast with all the stone.


Humans is very resilient and will always prevail. Nice capture of this ruin with good lighting and dof with nice details. Very well done, tfs.

Hi Steve,
Good sharpness and an attractive POV to present these ruins of Pompeii. Perfect texture in the marbles and very natural colors.
The vertical frame suits.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

bonjour Steve
have prevailed thanks to men of other centuries , certainly not thanks to the previous prime minister for whom roman architecture was not a priority.Pompei , Herculanum and others have been left in a quasi total abandonment.Ihave seen so many signs of this, and your shot though axing on prevail, shows above all that disaster.
Good pov and light
Bood evening Steve
