Photographer's Note

The light in that place is gorgeous but it is huge and the contrast ratios are extreme between pools of light and row after row of arches. This was taken handheld, very slow shutter speed, braced against a column. This was beyond some extremes (notice the left foot is entirely washed out) for lighting and DOF. Reduced image size, toned down highlights on the top half of the columns on the right, applied unsharp mask. Tried to crop out the columns, but ended up with a pleasant but uninteresting composition--also, the human figure is walking in the wrong direction, and the mood is completely lost.
(I incorrectly identified the camera as a Canon on the initial posting. It was in fact taken with my older 340R, and the shutter speed is a guess)
