Well done Calin.

Have you seen any of the horro“s movies made by the Hammer (a british company) back in the 60“s and 70“s? You should: This picture has the same kind of technicolour light. Congratulations.

Incredibly beautiful. What a setting for a sunset picture! The square framing is also an excellent choice. Oh, how well this is done..
How many points can I give? Wah, only 2?

Excellent result! The colors are very dramatic and the light shows in a perfect way the details of the structure on the right. Very nice natural framing! Congratulations and welcome!

Beautiful light and colors, nice composition and well chosen subject. All together, it is an outstanding photograph and I wouldn't be surprised to see it in an art gallery.

Very nice first photo in TE, Calin.
The scene seems a bit phantasmagoric with this beautiful red&yellow sky.
You have choose a good point of view having framed the sky with the to arches. Very good.
See you in next photos!

Welcome to TE Calin. A great posting! Interesting point of view, nice sharpness, clearness, colours. Beautiful shot!

Amazing light and dramatic mood. Could be some vampires (dead)living here after dusk.
A lot of mystery...

Incredible! The light is particular strange. The sky seems to be far away in the sunset (clouds are as dark as if the sun is already gone) and the light from the horizon is clear, white as if it is coming from a spotlight...
It is a dramatic feature, a wonderful play between landscape and light. Nice, nice, nice...

Excellent composition and colours. You have got a hair-raising shot. It seems the city of 'Mordor' in the Lord of the Rings :-). One picture very expressive. Congratulations!.

Calin, very interesting colors and the darkness is great.
It's a dramatic photograph with a high quality that means more than two themes.

Hi, Calin -
You seized an awesome opportunity here and made the most of it! Not just the colors in the sky, but the framing and the strong light on the walls. Excellent job!
vmukherjee (612) 2008-12-04 18:58
Great shot!! The light and shadow effects and the red sky through the ruins produce a magical shot.

Aceasta este o fotografie frumoasă, infricosator foarte mult īn "Romānia, țara Dracului" tradiție :-)
Dragoste formele simetrice și saturația culorilor.
