I like this shot and I think it would make a heck of a candidate for HDR. That being said, my tastes would have been to set the exposure more for the greens. It looks like the exposure was set more for the dark background so the greens and the sky do not look as vibrant as they could. Again, just my opinion. Great shot none the less.

Musket, I hope you don't mind my treatments. The sign was distracting so I did a tighter crop to remove it and give the composition a more central theme.
I also applied a bit of eq to the sky and dropped the overall exposure by about 1/3 ev.
Cheers!

I agree, that edit works a lot better as the sign was very distracting and out of character with the rest of the subject. It also feels to me that there is a slight rotation counter-clockwise needed as it seems to have a slant to the right.

All in all nice looking place, I always think it would be great to have been able to see such sites when there were in their full glory.

Thanks for commenting, the ruins are built on hilly ground so the slope to the
left of center in the background is how it looks, the perpendiculars that I used
for straightening reference were through the center of one of the long windows
of the ruin and the upright of the post of the sign in the foreground. like so



the critique and opinion is as always welcome
