Roman Agora

The Roman Agora at Athens is located to the north of the Acropolis and to the east of the Ancient Agora.

Succession to original agora

The original Agora was encroached upon and obstructed by a series of Roman buildings, beginning with the imperial family's gift to the Athenians of a large odeion (concert hall).The Odeon of Agrippa was built by him in around 15 BC, and measured 51.4 by 43.2 metres, rose several stories in height,and – being sited just north of the Middle Stoa – obstructed the old agora.In return for the odeion, the Athenians built a statue to Agrippa at the site of the previous agora; they based it on a plinth recycled from an earlier statue by covering the old inscription with a new one.

Hello Danos,
A truly beautiful light on the buildings and the church. This makes the foreground stand out strongly against the heavy clouded sky.

Hello Danos,

beautiful contrasts of colors accentuated by the threatening sky.
Good work

I like the lighting with the sunshine hitting the buildings against the dark clouds. Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hello Danos,
Nice buildings in fine surroundings. The light and colours are wonderful and the effect is enhanced by the contrast with the black clouds. The green areas also add fine contrasts.
Kind regards,

Hi Danos
Super beau contraste des façades colorées et lumineuse contre le ciel dramatique, belle réalisation
belle soirée

Hi Danos,
lovely spot where we can find some Roman elements as well as Byzantine architecture. The strongest point is here however the fantastic light which illuminates the colorful buildings for them to contrast with dark clouds behind. Such clouds are always a great background to have.
Excellent work!

Hello dear Danos,
Another topclass capture from Athens.
Perfect pov and layout.
The colorfull fassades at the center part of your compo gets anothet additional impression due to the dark clody sky.
Many interesting notes.
TFS and have a nice weekend

Καλησπέρα Δάνο,
έχω βγάλει κι εγώ φωτογραφίες στη αρχαία Ρωμαϊκή Αγορά της Αθήνας, κρατώντας τη μηχανή μου μέσα σπό τα κάγκελα της περίφραξης:) Εντυπωσιακή η εικόνα που τράβηξες με το κινητό σου, μια προσεγμένη και ισορροπημένη σύνθεση με πολύ καλές λεπτομέρειες και χρώματα. Οι συνθήκες του φωτισμού πρεσέδωσαν έναν δραματικό τόνο στην ατμόσφαιρα. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό Σαββατοκύριακο,

Your note is very informative, the photo is perfect, it is a kind of reportage photo with great quality

Hi Danos
easy to like this one, its all about the sky in my opinion.
If the sky was bright blue, it just wouldn't have the same visual impact as it does when its dark grey like that.

and of course the yellows and pale blue building fronts stand out smartly as well. Lots to grab our attention with in this shot

Hello Danos.
Sensational charm of this great panorama, a group of houses with beautiful colors along with the dome of the church, creating a very attractive whole, the dramatic sky in dark gray, makes the whole projection and 3D.
Very effective colorful, highlighting the details of the image.
Good management of both the brightness and sharpness.
Well done. I like a lot.
Enjoy the weekend.
Best wishes for you.

Hi Danos

I like the wide angled, panoramic crop and the superb lighting contrasts between the sunlit fg and dark ominous blue black clouds in the bg, which also contrast well with the yellow facade of the building. Tfs!

Hello Danos,
The colors in this photo are spectacular. Did you use HDR processing?

Bonsoir, cher ami Danos,
La présentation générale est mise en valeur par ce ciel sombre et menaçant.
Une lumière presque divine vient caresser joliment les façades.
Belle réussite.

Hi Danos!
I always like these contrasts. The dark sky is just great behind the buildings and the atmosphere is really good. Loos that a storm is coming at any moment.
