Great shot and nice pp work, the dry grass and heavy sky are a great contrast, the detail in the stonework is good and the overgrown tracks lead the eye into the shot. The HDR is a great technique. TFS

let me be the first member of your 'fan club' to give you a 'pat on the back'. ;)
This is another impressive photo with a well chosen POV which boost DOF tremendously. I like the strong contrast between dark blue sky and orange/reddish ground. Colors and sharpness are perfect. Well presented and executed, a job well done. Great gift for Jan, I am sure he will like it.

Hi dear Suzy,
What a superb historical shot vith wonderful POV, light and perspective.Great sky.TFS.
Brilliant HDR, I have fond memories of Byblos and Baalbeck having spent my 21st birthday there in the Early 70's and you have shown this great architecture as I remember it...I often wondered if it would have suffered over the years but it still looks remarkable and your positional shot is perfect
Well done..thanks for sharing
Et avec la mer au pied à ce que je vois; c'est superbe.Du coup je suis allé me promener du côté de Byblos ...avec GoogleEarth; magnifique !
Votre HDR est comme le POV le choix parfait.J'ai été tenté de faire un ws avec un 2e oeil pour ce visage d'en haut...
Belle dédicace à Janone
Je vous souhaite une bonne journée

the contrast between dim cloud and clear castle make unusual view like timeless space, like spaceless time...
our consciousness is always like in a dream, our life story is truly like in a novel or fantasy...
your feeling is surely like these parallel rails from nowhere to nowhere...
someday you'll remember this scene in uncertain sensation, the reality maybe in it.

The yellow ochre colours of the buildings contrast well, against the blue black clouds. Good pp work, although I would have burnt in the strong highlights. Adequate sharpness, & the railway track adds nice lead in lines towards the old ruins. Tfs!

quel effet ce ciel, fantastique, avec le rendu sur les vielle pierres, ces couleurs, cette ambiance, superbe compo.
Bravoe t amitié
good point of view.
I like it, particularly, the contrast that you have known how to give among the strong light on the constructions and the dark clouds in sky.
Sorry for my english.
P.S. I will look with slowly your gallery. I have seen that you have gone off beautiful photos.

Hi Suzy, Good composition of these famous ruins. The textures and colouring has immense appeal. The yellowing tinge makes this a timeless photo. TFS, Murray.
PS I agree with your comments on Jan, a full of fun guy.

- [2009-08-01 21:06]
I quite like this one, can tell straight away that it's HDR. There's a few things that could do with improvement such as the sharpness and a decrease in the yellow tones, but in another sense I like it the way it is as it has a 'gritty' and raw feeling to it. The clouds are a nice feature of this scene, your POV is good too. Cheers for the very informative and useful note to help is really understand the photo.
