Default Where the words have come to an end...

Once supporting the fourth greatest Ionic temple in the world, they have been standing here for about 2300 years...

Ahh, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus? Nice original take on one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Pliny the Elder describes how the reconstruction looked.

I'm afraid not (while nothing wrong about the equally degree of appreciation of course).
The Temple of Artemis in Ephesus, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, is the largest temple of antiquity. The one above as I wrote, being the fourth largest one, is the Temple of Artemis in Sardis.

Thumbs up Bahadir, allow me to be blunt:

My initial outburst was a rather loudly spoken "Xeeeeexxx" (name of the god of the Christian religion - kruzified approx. 2000 years ago...), when I first opened this thread.

I could not believe my eyes when confronted with this photo, as it's 3-dimensionality is so overpowering and well presented. This is truly a personal victory for you, bahadir, presenting this picture in this very appropriate forum for it.

Impressive and astounding are the two first superlatives that come to my mind, trying to describe this well executed tone-mapping.

Well done, my friend!
:-))

Yes I was puzzled by the dates, the destruction at Ephesus taking place in 356 BC, before being reconstructed, while the temple at Sardis lasted into the fourth century AD.

Beautiful image, which ever the temple.

I dont know one temple from another and my mother wouldnt let me play with Pliny but I just love the rich detail you have captured. A great example of HDR.

Really nice. This photo reminds me of my name. All kidding aside, you have created and captured a very powerful photo.

I feel soooo rewarded by your heartfelt response my friend
As you have exactly pointed out, I always admired 3 dimensionality of HDR thanks to its unique gradual shading! Ah, 'veteran' painters just know it
