It was a very good idea to stay in the hostel in Paestum. The hostel was just on the other side of the ruins and in this way I could see all the temples in blue hour and then in the night. it was fascinating experience.
Paestum was a major ancient Greek city on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea in Magna Graecia (southern Italy). The ruins of Paestum are famous for their three ancient Greek temples in the Doric order, dating from about 600 to 450 BC, which are in a very good state of preservation. The city walls and amphitheatre are largely intact, and the bottom of the walls of many other structures remain, as well as paved roads. The site is open to the public, and there is a modern national museum within it, which also contains the finds from the associated Greek site of Foce del Sele.
Paestum contains three of the most well-preserved ancient Greek temples in the world.
This is the second temple of Hera, built c. 460–450 BC.
i will upload also the view in the day as Workshop.

Hello Malgo, my neighbour of the day.
Great classical image of the yellow of the ancient Greek temple in the yellow floodlight in front of the deep blue of the falling night. The silhouette of the tree gives this excellent picture its extra quality.
Have a nice day

What a fantastic photo, the golden illuminations of the impressive and so well preserved temple are fantastic and stand out so well against the dark blue background. The sharpness is superb.

Perfectly realised blue hour composition. Ideally exposed with superb warm/cool colour contrasts. Excellent rendering of the textural detail.

This is a very good photo (I think I have seen it before), but I almost like the silhouette of the tree as much as the illuminated temple. Overall the colours and light are very good, and so is the sharpness. The angle was also well chosen.

Quelle superbe photo à l'heure bleue. La Sicile est pour moi un rêve et cette ruine très bien conservée en est une des causes en plus de la bonne bouffe. Superbe technique.

Wow ....... impressive the beauty of this illuminated temple, with that golden light that makes you stand out as a jewel, from that fantastic sky to blue hour, the backlight of the pines gives a nice touch.
Great color, which gives a lot of appeal to the image.
Very good brightness and perfect sharpness.
Well done. I like very much.
You have a good day.
All the best.

A picture of this temple taken from the same point of view but at daytime and flanked by the tree would already be very attractive.
So this one, taken at the blue hour is simply wonderful with its extremely strong contrast between the golden tones and the sky.
Best regards, Paul

always a favorite of mine to see and capture blue hour photos, and when you can combine that with a yellow colour it makes it that much better.
ample lighting and illumination in your scene, you captured this one very well indeed. and we can even see people walking in and around the structure. - I get the feeling that person standing ON the temple isn't suppose to be there. excellent shot
I'll post a new photo later

trovi sempre il modo di essere nelle vicinanze dei luoghi importanti e riesci a fare foto belle e interessanti.
Bellissimo questo tempio e bello è il colore delle luci artificiali che si inserisce perfettamente nel blu del cielo.

The architecture is wonderful, and this golden color given by the light makes it look even more beautiful! Fantastic capture of this place at the blue hour! I also like the silhouette of the tree! Wonderful composition!

Hello MAlgorzata ,
One of the most amazing temple in Sisilia , an island so rich in greek ruins .
A wonderful capture at the blue hour , that highlights the beauty of the architecture .

I met an Italian guy in the Iraklion Hostel in Crete who said I should definitely visit Paestum, so I did. I WOULD pick a day when it was raining, though. You were luckier with the weather. A gorgeous blue hour shot and the yellow illumination contrast well with the deep blue hour sky. Tfs!

This is an excellent blue hour photo, with the silhouette of the tree on the right. That silhouette kind of reminds me of the Kindle logo. It's a wonderfully crisp image.

in terms of style it looks more heavy than those I saw in greece, anyway no one there was so preserved like this. amazing perspective and precious colors and light. it looks like a gold jewel shining against the blue.perfect.
