Nice picture, I really like it:-)

P.S. I think the clouds are a little bit too white ..

Boily,

I have to agree with the clouds. I did do some work on the sky but the clouds where way to blown. It was high noon when I took this series of shots, more to just use the lens than take the perfect picture. That said I was really impressed with the way they turned out.Thanks for the comments

Yes, the clouds are a bit too white, although you could do a sky replacement which is very easy with any program, Photoshop, PhotoFiltre - free, The Gimp - free. Or you could change the colour of the clouds. It is maybe a bit harder with PhotoFiltre because it doesn't deal with layers, it's all one layer.

Some people seem to be overly prone to correcting perspective. I usually leave it alone since it adds to the impression of height and size. But that seems a little excessive to me. That might be what you were looking for with that lens but the effect looks a little odd to me.

Slipe,

I'm not sure which perspective you are talking about, but I assume it is the columns towards the back and the way they appear to be leaning in-wards. The way the Parthenon looks is the way it came out of the camera. I think the reason for this is the way the building was designed. It is supposed to give the illusion that no matter which angle you look at it all the columns appear to be the same size. I guess the lens is playing an illusion on the illusion :?The only PP I did was levels, USM, etc.

S-R Thanks for the reply I'll look into the sky replacement.

Mugmar,

This is what Slipe is talking about:

I had a similar photograph of La Madaline in Paris (Similar when it comes to perspective):

Sorry about all the post, I can only do one image per post with the attachment feature. Anway here is my attempt at correcting perspective on your image as well as the clouds:
