Hi David
These ruins show us that ancient architects were really good.
The whole scenery is attractive.


Hi David,
Clever combination with busy yet interesting BG. Good depth and details.

Hello David, I imagine that there are ruins everywhere alongside modern day buildings.
A good PoV looking across the densely populated hillside.
Very good DoF.
Regards Jean.
