    Sunny Athens

    It was a sunny day today in Athens. These freshly caught jpegs are straight from my Canon Powershot with no processing (except some cropping). Comments are most welcome.

    Interesting series Steve,

    Good quality considering

    I think "Looking north east from Areopagus" could probably do with a bit of clockwise rotation couldn't it?
    Maybe not, the buildings look vertical, does the land really fall away to the left like that?

    Nice shots, Steve. are they restoring the Acropolis, or just working to keep it from deteriorating?

    Dave, now that I look more carefully the land falls at a rather abrupt angle from a certain point, not following the "line" of the buildings to its right. So given that the trees look vertical too and that the buildings in the right side too are sloping down somewhat I'd say no rotation is needed here. But I'll confirm that in my next visit there!

    Frank, as far as I know restoring is a never ending process but preserving the remaining sculptures is much easier now inside the museum.

    Antonio, it's Canon Powershot S2 5MP. It works "right" only in broad light and at ISO 50. I use bracketing but under the circumstances the first shot always has the best exposure.

    I agree.

    It proves the photographer makes a good picture, not the camera.
    It always helps if the photographer knows how to make the most of their images (from shooting conditions to PP) though
