Photographer's Note

Another picture taken at the Holy Monastery of Arkadi which is the most famous monastery in Crete and the one place which, above all, symbolises Cretan independence following the holocaust there in 1866.

This is one of the beautiful terraces in the courtyard - a peaceful and relaxing place to sit and enjoy the fine architecture and gardens.

Shot in RAW and converted and edited in PSE6. Because of the strong contrasts, I used the "Lighten Shadows/Darken Highlights" feature in PSE6 to a small degree before resizing and sharpening.

All comments/critiques/advice welcome!
