Beautifully composed shot with great depth. Like the selective color treatment and the weathered look of the columns.

Thanks to all the members of ePz who have written so many kind words and, more importantly, who have made useful suggestions.
Thanks for the HC Peter. I just noticed it now. I thought Sugar Jones was referring to the "high contrast" in this shot. Smile
Thanks all. -=Walter

Great Walter. Very cool shot and nicely done. The only thing and this is just personal preference is I think it would have more integratedness if it were all B&W. The color separates the guitarist from the environment instead of being a part of it. The color now becomes the dominent element instead of the guitarist. Just my taste Smile I do love the image and you did it very well. Kudos
