The Acropolis of Athens is an ancient citadel located on a high rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and containing the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance.
Porch of the Caryatids, an inspired piece of architecture, this balcony has six beautiful maidens functioning as columns that support the roof. Each of the lady-columns has a base beneath her feet, pleated robes as the fluting, and a fruit-basket hat as the capital. Both feminine and functional, they pose gracefully, exposing a hint of leg. These are faithful copies of the originals though; all of six are on display in the museums.

mi congratulo per la tua passione per le crociere e per le belle località che hai occasione di visitare e fotografare.
Oggi è la volta di Atene, che proponi in una bella visione del Partenone, il suo simbolo più noto, fotografato in maniera eccellente in una bella composizione che ne valorizza l'architettura, senza fastidiose ombre e con una luce molto morbida che mette in risalto anche i colori della pietra e l'armonia delle forme.
Una bella foto per la quale ti faccio i miei complimenti.
Ciao e buon inizio di settimana

Hello Tiffany, lovely image here, i was just reading some articles about the Acropolis and that complex was huge! What is allowed to be seen today is the only thing that remained standing. Well done here, good highlights against the grey sky. Well done.

Hi Tiffany. The photo does justice to the elegance of the temple.Nice POV with little in the image to distract one from the beauty of the structure. Probably it's just as well that the light wasn't too strong. Regards. Klaudio.

Classic shot of the Acropolis of Athens.Even after few millenniums have gone by,the ancient citadel stands in its full glory and grandeur.The light, the colors, the neatness, the depth are exceptional. Superb light management and clarity of the shot.Very well done.

Fine panorama of the Acropolis, including not only the Porch of the Caryatids, but the foreground of block ruins, all in warm tones and good resolution.

I could see now that we have met each other communicating in TE. Amazing how the internet connects us so easily. Some years ago I had to write letters and then post them taking always a long time. Nevertheless in this page you have replied to me as a confirmation. In Greece in particular liked to see these women statues. The photos I have took are not bad in my opinion. But I certainly would take much more to have another results. I already have them in the FB. I do not mind to add you. I spend more time in FB and some pictures perhaps will never appear in the TE. I have liked to see Athens form the Acropolis.I mean a vastity unknown for me. I was in a tour organized by the same ship cruise. I only stayed at the center o the town. Yet had time to sit down at an esplanade to drink a beer under the trees shadow. Warm regards. Tomi. FB- (António Domingos).
