Photographer's Note

Petra, a wonderful town. This is the treasury near the entrance of the old city. Most people have seen it through Indiana Jones' adventures, from which I long believed to be a studio prop. Amazing site, especially this first glance of it. There are probably a zillion photos taken of it, so why not try to shoot one for myself. After all, it is chosen one of the new seven wonders of the world.
Most pictures have trouble with underexposure of the canyon in front, or overexposure on the treasury behind because of its balance. Tried some flash to see what happened, pretty happy with the result. Maybe a little less flash on the rock to the right?
