One of the many photogenic angles available at Ag Triadha Monastery, Akrotiri Peninsular, NW Crete, Greece.

October 2006. Nikon D50 + 18-70 Nikkor lens

Nice shot, no...make that excellent shot.

Good perspective, makes you feel like you are there and ready to walk down the corridor. Like the fact that you incorporate curved part of tunnel (?) you are leaving. Really adds to picture and sense of walking.

Good depth of field, which can be tricky given vagaries of light and the walled sides.

Makes me think of the potential with the basic Nikon (D50) and optional 18-70 mm lens. Obviously a good combo.

Did you use 18 mm, curious about f stop/shutter speed?

Tripod/mono pod? If so, what kind, light for travelling?

Thanks Lesmore49. The shot was hand held, aperture priority with shady WB setting to bring out the gold stone colour. Yes I've found the D50 + 18-70 lens to be a good combination (better than the 18-55 so I'm told!). I use it along with a Sigma 70-300 APO DG Macro which covers most of my needs at the moment
