A lovely silhouette and I just luv the tones in the sky, wonderful! Hmm, a bit odd having a temple to a Vauxhall car though!

A nice silhouette indeed, and a good gradient in the sky through to the sunset, I don't think I have tried one.
Keith seems a bit confused it's a Vauxhall Meriva, Minerva is a ship owned by Swan Hellenic Lines.

It's very appropriate that this now an art gallery as Minerva was the Roman goddess of sponsor of the arts, among other things. The like the graduated sky in this from the darkness top left to the last light from the setting sun towards the bottom right. Nicely done.

The Roman goddess of wisdom's temple in a nice silhouette. To be a little picky, the picture might be slightly improved IMHO by being taken from a little further away. The temple dome to me over dominates taking up around 30% of the frame. I guess it was impossible but if more sky could have been seen through pillars and openings, that would have balanced it better. I realise it is subjective, but just my HO George. The sky to the right is superb.

Very pleasing image like the glow of the sun set on the righ
