Seems like an umbrella to me too.
What a shot..it could be a painting of the impressionism era.
wonderful,dreamy...its like a scene from a Ridley Scott movie.
what a sense of depth,impressive!i really liked it.if i could change something i would crop it on top at 1/6th, i find the white area on the ceiling a bit distracting.
both changes (lower contrast and crop) help for a better result.i also like your composition,you combined different elements,like the carved statues,the wall in the middle and the roofs.
way better than the first version because you feel closer to the background,which is the star of the photo-cause of the mood and the depth :)
we can see the third dimension,the one behind the other column works well,but the right column spoils the result and distracts the eye.maybe you can crop or remove it..plus the photo needs more vivid colors..
way better in colors and crop.that car was really annoying and someone who loooks at the photo can feel better the depth
i wouldnt say that this crop makes any difference,it was and it still is a great photo!
much better,the leaves on the left were distracting.i cant tell if its more contrast-y or more saturated,but it surely works too.
i like the saturated version more too..to my opinion this photo works better oversaturated or b/w,not with in-between versions
much better crop,i also like the contrast between the vertical columns and the horizontal wall-line in the background
better crop and more vivid colors,i prefer this version
i like both too,maybe the first abit more.i liked the contrast between dark green and the light,while colors here are more balanced,but this is against the atmosphere.
i cant say i like it more or less than the original,i like both shots.no great defferences.
better this way,though the sky could be even more threatening..it reminds me of the storm sequences of the first Jurassic Park!
interesting shot,there is depth with all these columns..the symmetry because of the reflection works well.i would crop the blue car down.
clever shot with vivid colors that match.the problem is the running man that is out of place,he doesnt belong to this shot and that the geese are headless!
we see some depth here..but this effect could be even more obvious under other circumnstances,for example if you could take a shot of the wall from a very close distance and watch it getting smaller in the depth.i would saturate this shot,i think it needs more blue sky and greens.
it suits the challenge.i would reduce contrast,there are strong darks and whites.
