The monument to Sir Walter Scott on Princes Street, Edinburgh. Edinburgh is sometimes called the "Athens of the North" because of its incredible architecture including many buildings built in an ancient Greek style. There is even an (incomplete) scaled-down parthenon on Calton Hill.


What do you think?

Seriously, I love the light, the colour, the lot.

It's an HDR from 5 exposures made in photomatix, plus some dodging and burning (brightening and darkening specific areas) in Paint Shop Pro.

hold on this one is lit, is incredible...a want to look at it at first, and say...a church-type structure... but then the light draws you...and holds your eye.. I enjoy the way the sky looks...and I really am attracted to the way the light changes color...the base of this photo is gold tone, rich, solid, and the light, dances and turns silvery at the top of the photo, creating almost twinkles, in fairy like, tho you know what my favorite ones are, I like this quite a bit, too! I think the compostition,and the way you chose to place this structure, enhances the entire look.


canon 7D, Mark iii 5D, ef 70-300 f/4-5.6, ef 28-135mm canon 100-400mm L IS 4.5, and a little 24-70 L f/2.8...

Wicked. Seriously, if I could live anywhere in the UK it would be Scotland.
I agree about the architecture in Edinburgh, it really is fantastic.
