Memory of sunshine & Roman mosaic

By xwang
The photo was taken in the early May, after I visited a Roman Town house in Dorchester.There wasn't much sun shine then. Just before I went out, I looked back, I saw the delightful sunshine...and gave a 'click'. Still, I'm not sure B&W or colour version..
BTW, I'll upload anther two mosaic photos for you to have a look. I was lucky, the house should be locked most of the time. I saw two archaeologists were making notes there, I had a chat with them and asked them if I could take a quick photo of the site. So here they are, the archaeologists soon left. I had a few minutes and a few photosSmile. I tried to photoshop them a bit, but I didn't do wellGrin
I was told that it was an unique site, because most of the Roman mosaic(s) were only in the centre of the building, but this site, it covered the whole floor and the patterns were unique as well. Thank you for your kind comments on the previous photos.
After I read Christina's comment,I put the original version of V4 on. My photoshop skill is not very good, the more I try to 'improve', the worse I get..Grin
And here is the link of the Roman Town house. You may go and have a closer lookWink.

Thank you christina, I didn't do much really. The black edge was originally from the hood. I used magic wand to change the colour to grey. I also adjusted the constract. but it made the white a bit yellowGrin...
Thank you all for your kind comments.
