I have already posted a picture from this forgotten place in Yucatan peninsula. The book says that this great church was built upon the site of a Maya temple or pyramid. It is really striking with it's yellow color and arches all around. Here the time seems to have stopped in the 30's, few vinbtage cars but lots of horse carriages, an ideal setting for a movie
describing those years.

Hello Izzet, this photo doesn’t look real, it looks as a painting with those beautiful and bright colours. The light is good too and the sky great. Your note is interesting too, and I think it is a shame that the church had been realise on a Maya temple, so much human history have been eradicate of the world by fanatics……Thanks

What makes this shot wrok for me is the incredible sky - this is great use of the polarizer. The colours are very strong too. I'm not sure about the carriage, it might be even better without it, but it's great anyways. Well done!

Beautiful Izzet - the painter in me just loves the view through the arches and the ribbed sky above the statue is fantastic. I would have almost preferred the traffic free version of this I think - just to savour the wonderful relationship between the building and the sky. Just fascinating!

ton portfolio est vraiment très varié et magnifique.
Ce qui me plait beaucoup ici c'est ce très beau bâtiment jaune avec ce magnifique ciel. Superbe combinaison de couleurs.
Bien sûr la charette est également importante.

Superbe contraste entre ce jaune et ce bleu.
J'aime bien cette st statue plein centre et cette calèche sur la gauche, juste dans l'angle.
Très belle architecture et superbe ciel !
Très bonne qualité également.
