Convergence of the old and older, color saturation
In reply to tinternaut, Apr 26, 2012

I like it a lot. The horizontal and vertical shapes go well together. It looks like the interior side of a very old wall. The building roof has long since collapsed and rotted away. There's some very old history here. Where is it? What's the history?

I think you'd get more detail and richer color saturation with less exposure. Let the shadows go dark. They're not a big part of the image or the story and one stop less would not make them absolutely black. The detail of interest to me is the brick and erosion that's out in the sunlight.Just my thinking on this. Others may disagree.

Next time you have this kind of lighting try bracketing a few exposures and then see which one you like in review on the screen later. --
