The Lightning Temple

    Newer Older

    This was one scary place in a storm. I can't overstate that. The whole place felt alien and ancient... there was hardly anyone at this remote temple, and then pretty much everyone left when the storm hit. Between squalls, I took some quick shots as the sun went down, using a rainsleeve over my camera to try to keep it as dry as possible.

      The image is great!
      In my humble opinion, you should watch better the borders (where the building ends and the sky starts): they are too dark, maybe because of a quick mask. If that's the case, you can easily make the selection fade out from the figure (just an idea).
