Hi Tony:

Thanks for your nice comments.

The photo was taken at the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades, outside Los Angeles. It was based on a Roman villa built by J. Paul Getty to house his art works.

It was taken with the D40 and the 18-70, at 18mm (equivalent to 27mm in DX format,) 1/250, f/10, ISO=200, and -2/3 EV. It has some perspective distortions accentuated because the photo was taken off-center. There are certain things that cannot be compensated with PP. I did try by cropping and rotating it very slightly. The moral to the story is one has to visualize the photo before taking it. Therefore, it was imperative for me to be dead center, which I believe, the perspective distortions would have helped instead of fighting the photo. Oh well, it will not happen again .

Best Regards,

Hektor

PS: Here is another rendition with a copper tonality:





It has the same problems, but with a more severe crop. It is beginning to lose resolution. However, the D40 is a 6MP camera and I have 12MP-16MP cameras. Is it worth upgrading since I mainly publish on the Web? I do not know. The thing I will do, when the D600 comes out, is to go to Samys ant take ~25 photos. Then I'll know.
