Nice shots! They certainly make me want to go there!
Also, the second one looks like it would've made a perfect candidate for multi-exposure layering to extend the dynamic range (bring the background bright clouds into control without destroying that delicate pink of the marble in the structure.)

Hey,

Very nice, they are absolutely gorgeous. I've been to the Acropolis once and these pix take me right back! I agree with Norm, this photo would be a prime candidate for a double exposure layering. Thanks for sharing!

Photoshopped that second pic. Took about 5 minutes, background looks a little fake, but tell me what you think

Maybe it's me (and hopefully it is) but there are some spots that seem blurred, like there were spots on the lens. Like I said, maybe I need to have new glasses.

Running the original through Photoshop certainaly adds a little "punch" to the shot.

The composition is very well done. :)

My monitor is a little bit older so I can't see the spots as well, but I don't doubt it. There is something wrong with this camera (I think moisture may have gotten inside). Also I had to use the blur tool to take out some discoloration so that may also be what caused it. It only took me about 5 minutes, if I had taken more time I am sure it would have come out better.

Yes, you're right. Actually the original has less of this than the post-processed shot, sorry bout that...

Still very good composition..

PS Why is it that some older 2MP cameras seem to take better pictures than most (not all) newer 3 and 4MP cameras? ;)

Thank you very much for your kind words

My guess is because 2mp cameras produce files that are 1/2 as large as a 4mp (IE: double the pictures on a memory card), the percentages are just better that you will get one good picture :p ;)

I seem to think that too. My 2 MP Kodak can still churn out some decent photos better than a good bit of the newest entry level cameras. I guess the adage that the photographer takes the picture really holds true.
