Hallo Pics, sehr schöne Komposition! Die Hieroglyphen des Obelisken sind gestochen scharf, würde sie gerne lesen können.

Viele Grüße

Hallo Christine, die Inschriften verherrlichen den Sieg Ramses II. bei Kadesh gegen die Hethiter 1273 v.Chr.

Hello Marilyn,

I had a tripod with me and, as you see when you look at the shadows of the people, it's two pics combined

The shadows are spooky but nice! In this case, setting the camera on something solid just wasn't enough for me. I needed that tripod! Marilyn

Schöne Aufnahme! Es gefällt mir, wie der Tempel angestrahlt wird. Herrliches Lichtspiel!

Hallo Agoe,

das Licht kommt so ausgewogen, da das Bild aus zweien zusammengesetzt wurde. Achte mal auf die Schatten der herumstehenden Leute. Das ist für mich die Anwendung von HDR, den Blendenumfang zu erhöhen
