    This shot was actually inspired by the Peter Gabriel song "In Your Eyes".
    I was surprised that the crane in the background was moving, but hey, what can you do about it?

    "In your eyes / I see the doorway / in you eyes / to a thousand churches".

    I really love this song...

    I like how none of the highlights in the monument are blown out. And I really like the texture of the ground in the foreground. This must have been very difficult to balance the exposure for the widely disparate tones.

    Thanks a lot for the positive comments!
    Indeed, balancing the exposure was a "thin red line" as they sometimes call it! :)
    Actually, there EXISTS a version with more details towards the top, I will see, if I can still find it, I am not quite sure, where I saved it.
    Yet, at the time I decided what the final photograph should look like, I wanted it with no details towards the top, but now that I think about, showing them would probably have been cool! :)

    Thanks for pointing me towards it!

    Not a big fan of HDR's but this would have made a great shot for it. Although I do like it!
