Hello Friends TL
This is my version of the theme of Friday changed ...
It's almost magic: Epheseus in HDR.
Ephesus is one of the oldest and largest Greek city in Asia Minor.
Here, if I remember correctly, is what remains of the Fountain of Trajan.
Thank you for your visit and happy weekend.

Hi Daniele,
this place is so magical - for sure.
I visited it 2 times and never made such a fantastic shot than you did.
Also excellent PP-work with HDR, special atmosphere and wonderful colours.
Thanks, good job

Bonjour Danièle

Le HDR donne une dimension différente et une luminosité spéciale à l'ensemble. On peut même lire les mots sur la plaque. Les détails sont extraordinaires,

Bon weekend

Hi Daniele!
I remember this wonderful place....I visit it several years ago.
There we can breathe a magic atmosphere..
Your capture is very good and the HDR treatment gives it the right suggestive atmosphere.
Very well done.
Ciao! Vanda

Hi Daniele - I'm going to be a little harsh (and hopefully honest) by saying nice view, well composed, very sharp - but.... The HDR is a great idea but can easily be overdone, especially with the sky as is the case here. The sky has gone a funny gray colour which doesn't look right.

One way to deal with this would be to use layers - do the HDR on the buildings and countryside and them merge into the untouched sky. Just a thought!!


Hi Daniele,
Well the whole composition gives a magical look as you wonderfully processed this HDR which doesn't give normal HDR look but rather a magical city look,as the FG details of this historical city has a special effect so in the same manner the sky works too as the whole pic gives a painting and graphic look,well executed shot and a nice contribution to the Friday theme.

Best Regards

Ciao Daniele

I love working with HDR,
more sure that this was your first
because the colors are very sharp and beautiful,
IMHO I'm finding this a bit opaque colors
Plus the place you chose is wonderful, would
wonderful colors.
I'm sure will see later


Bonjour Daniele,

Que de vestiges, à visiter ou revisiter pour l'histoire!
Merveilleuse capture remise en HDR, belle maitrise et surtout que de belles pierres, avec ce chapiteau enfin si je puis dire, qui déchire les couleurs du ciel.
L'ensemble de la luminosité est mat, j'aime assez bien. Bon cadrage. Merci.
Belle journée. Yolande

Bonjour Danièle, superbe composition et excellents détails dans les pierres et dans le paysage. Le HDR a rendu l'ensemble un peux irréel mais je crois que c'était justement le but, bravo!
