Bonjour Mario,
Cet arbre est à tout le moins aussi vieux que ce temple! Superbe point de vue. Le dépouillement de la photo dessert bien la grandeur et le classicisme de ce témoin de l'Histoire. Excellente conversion! Bravo! Anie

Salut Mario ,
Un bâtiment avec beaucoup d'histoire . Bel architecture et quel bel arbre pour l'accompagner .

That really is an old building
The tree doesn't seem so young either
Great POV

Bonjour Mario
Une belle composition avec deux sujets forts, le temple et l'arbre. d'ailleurs on se demande lequel des deux est le plus ancien ;-)
Personnellement j'aurais rajouté un peu de contraste et réduit un peu la luminosité car je trouve l'image un peu trop claire. Mais ce n'est qu'un avis perso. Beau travail.

Bonjour Mario,
WoW! très jolie photo du Temple de la concorce en Sicile, Excellent cliché et présentation pour le thème en Sepia, Superbe point de vue avec cette arbre qui n'est pas jeune non plus,belle architecture et détails.Bravo.

Hello Mario,

The building is certainly very old and the gnarled olive tree just adds to the theme! They work together for composition and perspective!

The sepia treatment suits this shot!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Mario
WOW your building is REALLY "old"... the sepia works really well here.. I really like how it makes the tree also look!


Beach boys....round round I get around....well it was 3-4 years ago I see...I wonder what in the heck kind of tree that is? A cypress...A ceder? Cool image to play with on a Friday eh?

Jolie photo,vieille photo,comme disait le regretté Claude Blanchard.La composition est superbe.Le sépia est approprié pour ce genre de photo.Comme une image de studio prise sur un fond blanc.Bel effet visuel.

Hi Mario,
I'd be curious to know if this is the oldest building submitted for this weeks theme. Excellent work as always! Very nice! Thanks!

i thought this one in Greece :P you been to sicily too.. wow.. i hope to go there one day.. i love the place near the sea.. this is a place in Italy i been dreaming of going.. hehe..

lovely shot as always, Mario.. love your sepia effect. well done.. have a wonderful weekend.

regards, terry

bonjour Mario, tres belle contribution au theme de ces ruines et ce magnifique arbre dont le tronc est tordu.

Peut-etre un peu surexposee vu la pose en contre-jour?
Ce que je fais pour reduire la luminosite soit que je vais dans Match colour et je glisse le curseur de lumimance vers la gauche, soit que je vais dans Replace Colour et je bouge le curseur de Lightness vers la gauche.
Juste une suggestion.

Bonne journee :)

Hello mario,
Nice composition.
Is that a olive tree?
Good conversion to sepia. TFS

Salut Mario ,
You can’t get much older than this and with the great job you did of the conversion it makes it double great. What a wonderful opportunity you had to visit here and record it. Excellent for the theme. Bravo.
Amitiés sincères

Now that is old. Really like the composition with just two major elements - tree and temple and allowing the sky and ground to "fade". add to the feeling of age.


wow, an impressive image of this temple Mario, well composed and presented, with the tree as foreground really makes it appealing.
