It's a shame that so little of this monastery's photos are good enough to show,it's a very interesting structure.
Thank you:D

Those dark clouds make a perfect frame for ancient ruins. Very nice pic!

Yes,I think so too,but shooting in this light was a real pain...;)Moreover,there was a fence in the way,as the monastery isn't accessible to the public - which is a shame again,but I try to persuade myself that it's for safety reasons or maybe to prevent further devastation of the cemetery...

I know what you're talking about. Fences sometimes are a serious problem for taking good photos.

And when you take city pics, there often are traffic signs, posters or ugly graffiti that ruin your photo. But in many cases Photoshop helps a lot. ;-)

Yes,sometimes PS can really save a photo:D One more problem in the city is that there are people:D When I see someone taking a picture,I wait or walk behind them and usually people do the same, but,like it was the case in Carrickfergus recently,a guy on bike stopped just in the centre of my frame and stood there for exactly the time it took me to take 3 expositions for HDR.Desperate for a portrait,I guess:D
