62 AD Earthquake
The inhabitants of Pompeii, as those of the area today, had long been used to minor quaking but on 5 February 62, there was a severe temblor which did considerable damage around the bay and particularly to Pompeii.

This is a fine composition, and the ruins are enchanting. However I think the colors are a bit off. There is a strong red hue that I have tried to correct in a workshop. I hope you won't mind.

uma interessante imagem dessas ruínas de Pompei aqui, e gostei desse PP mais nostálgico também, com uma luz suave. Belo trabalho.
Parabéns e Abraço,

Ola Rui, Pompeii is such a fascinating place and with that moody sky, the ruins look so beautiful. Excellent contrast and colours. The vertical frame is well-used, with excellent textures and differing tones. TFS and I wish you a good day, Lisa
