Hi Charles,
Superb capture. Stunning light and colours. Thee golden glow is perfect! Composition can't be better, all details are shown. Great posting.

Hello Charles
I don't usually like heavy pp'd images - but this is amazing. It looks to me very much like an 'old master' in an art gallery. Great work.
Regards, Leslie

Bonjour Charles,
Très bonne idée ce PPwork, c'est superbe le côté dramatique que cela apporte... surtout lorsque l'on connait l'histoire de cette ville.
Magnifique aussi l'effet produit sur le paysage et le relief.
Bonne journée


Wow! excellent photo,i like it.

Best wishes for 2009.

Great work, look almost like some medieavel painters masterpiece !

I would have like a bit more explanation on the PP ?



Greetings, Charles -

Hi Charles,
Beautiful landscape and place in Andalucia,
Excellent composition and presentation,
great colours and sharpness.
Amazing sky and ray of sun..

Hello Charles,

This is like a shot from some dramatic epic film! The sunrays piercing the clouds and lighting the cliff-top building is amazing!

I like the colour tones very much.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

An incredible shot here Charles! Love that beam of light coming into the shot! Amazing details, maybe a bit TOO orange for me, but that's just me! Your sharpness is incredible! Nice work!
You get added to my Light Theme!

Hi Charles,
Very interesting shot.Nice light and shadow.Good contrast!

wow great shot such beautiful pov !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AMAZING

Beautiful landscape and view,
Excellent composition, great colours and sharpness.

This is just spectacular, Charles! Wow! I'm going to have to 'fave' this one. I just can't find anything to 'critique' other than maybe being just a tad dark, but who cares? The beauty in the shot is simply overwhelming. TFS

Does ROL stand for "Ray Of Light"? Did you create it in PP?
I love the effect anyway, the scenery looks like a painting!
Could you show the original version in workshop? I'm curious about infrared colours (here I could hardly guess it's infrared photo, because you changed the colours).
