une présentation originale de cet ensemble architectural, bon rendu de la pierre et des sculptures. Les ruines sont superbes et le texte intéressant.

A nice inverted shot, Eric, with great perspective. The detail here is amazing as well, both in the columns and on the crumbling ceiling above. Nice idea and well executed.

Un commentaire instructif. la prise est inhabituelle mais bon choix pour nous montrer l'architecture. bonne netteté qui permet de bien voir les détails du bâtiment.
