Very nicely composed shot. However, IMHO the back lighting (?) has put the buildiing in a shadow which does not seem to show the splendor of this world wonder. A full sillouette would have worked as well, but this image seems underxposed.

BTW, the other images that you referenced in your link are spectacular...great compositions and great contrast!

Thanks for viewing and you comment. I should have mentioned that this picture was caught as the sun was almost disappearing in the horizon. I liked the pink glow being cast on the marble, so I deliberately kept the EV a step or two down to accentuate it.

I like the how the lighting gives a subtle dignity to a building that is anything but subtle in the direct sun. Followed the link to your other photos and I thank you for giving me two excellent views I'd never seen before of this icon, the ones labeled 'platform around the base' and 'get the perspective'. You have a photographer's eye IMHO.
