Another two from the archives. These are of Mount Hymettos, which is one of the mountains that surrounds Athens and locks in the pollution. It's nearly 1,100m tall so gets at least a dusting of snow most winters, even when the city below stays clear. These are taken from the campus of the University of Athens, where I worked for two years.

At one end of the long summit ridge is an astronomical observatory; at the other is the big collection of radio and television transmitters that serve most of the Athens area.

As always, comments and criticism are appreciated.

Dave.

Original effect, with those wild herb in the foreground, and contrast with the smooth curves of the background.

My favorite of these two is v2 - it's almost like an alien landscape, almost eerie in the mood it projects.
The two trees framing the shot in v1, I find slightly distracting, despite the frame they afford the view beyond. I do like the layers though, as they become lighter as they recede and give a very good sense of depth.

Thanks for your comments.

wefi, I actually prefer #2, too. The only reason I ordered them as I did is that #2 looks really boring as a thumbnail, while #1 only looks pretty boring at that size. Wink

Since I no longer have E2 membership, I don't have the quandary of choices to contend with; but there are other things I miss.
