About the Image(s)

This photo was taken in 2018 during my visit to Antalya, Turkey. Hadrian's gate is one of the most famous touristic attractions in Antalya. The photo was captured using my Nikon D3200, Nikkor 18-55 mm AF lens, ISO: 100, S: 1/125, F: 5.6, focal length: 24 mm and auto white balance. I made 3 brackets with +2, 0, -2 exposures which were merged together by Aurora HDR 2019 to produce my HDR photo.

love the scene, would like to visit someday, wow.

The columns and stones look great, and your tonemapping worked well despite the moving people. Kudos to you and to Aurora. =2 would have put you at 1/30 sec for that exposure, wre you on a tripod? looks sharp either way.

I am not that the sky adds in this case. If it were mine I would be tempted to content aware fill out the two people in the back, the man walking away, and the person at the far column. The couple walking in are in a good position compositionsally and show scale.   Posted: 03/14/2020 15:50:53

Very nice work on the blend. Maybe a little toward the HDR look but it works with this subject material. I like the dog on the lower left keeping that area from being completely open. Looks to be a little grit in the sky and the man's shirt and other shadowed light area seem to have picked up a purplish cast. Emperor Hadrian seems to have inspired a lot of building. The wall in England started in 122 BC and this was built to commemorate his visit here in 130 BC.   Posted: 03/14/2020 18:37:42

Very cool structure and the photo tells a nice story. I agree with Lisa that the one in the back could be removed. The cropping looks good otherwise showing the columns which are important.   Posted: 03/19/2020 13:22:05

Nice composition with only minor suggestions to make it better yet. I noticed the purplish cast from the shadow of the two in front, plus removing the person in the sunlit background.

Terrific composition. Everything is working for you. I like the people in the arch. It give a sense of scale. Great job!   Posted: 03/23/2020 15:13:38
