The famous Athena Pronaia Sanctuary at Delphi. A magical sight. Here it is just after sunset, I was a bit late getting there for the sunset, although it was a hazy and unspectacular sunset. This type of light at least helps add some definition to the stonework.

Interesting light. It does give some definition to the stonework. Picky items? Seems it needs a very slight rotation to the left. And I would delete that road in the bkgrd that leads like a snake from the upper right corner of the columns. Distracts because it attaches to the column visually.

Hi Dvir, I think Hazel have raised a good point with that road, especially the bit above the structure... the tree RHS is a little dark and with heavy shadows. Agree the subdued light works well with the greys..

Hi Dvir, ditto on the road. I do agree it would be nice to lighten up the trees a touch and Nik's Detail Extractor would help emphasize the stonework's detail.

The light really does make this very nice - compared to some of the other shots from this trip that you posted in harsh light for sure.
I don't mind the road at all :e3. I would dodge the highlights on the stonework a bit though?
