Temple of Hephaistos in Athens, Greece. This temple is the most prominent and perhaps best preserved building of the Ancient Agora of Athens. Construction started on this temple in 449 B.C.
For this shot what I found interesting was how the temple was being approached, almost surrounded by the modern neighborhoods and buildings of Athens. The use of a telephoto lens helped to accentuate this effect.

Hello Douglas -
I like what you are trying to show here, ancient vs new. I think I would had given a bit more space to the new in this image and less of the field in ruins in the foreground. I do like the slightly underexposed effect that you have here but that is just me. I am sure a tad more brightness would have attracted a few comments. The technical stuff; DOF, POV, sharpness, etc is very good.
Thanks for sharing
