This site has moved to another blog called, ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY. There will me no further posts to this site. The new site will continue so show my regular shooting progress, but will also contain other topics on photography, such as hands-on equipment and software reviews, historical information on photography, and much more.

When it was set up, the DAILY STOCK SHOT PROJECT was supposed to be a one year project. Last year I extended the project another year due to the popularity of the site, but now it is time to move on.

If you wish to continue following, please visit my new blog at ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY and save it as a new link.

The sky cleared long enough for me to grab some shots on top of the Acropolis.  Unfotunately, there was a lot of construcion with scaffolding to be avoided.  One of the ways I usually do this is to include something in the foreground to hide the construction and roaming tourists.  Here I used a wide angle lens focused on the foreground detaisl and included the Parthenon just peaking out behind it.
This shot was done with the 16-35mm Nikkor zoom set to 16mm and focused on the foreground column.  At f/8 I was still able to still keep some detail in the background building of the Temple of Athena Nike.

On my way back to the hotel the sky turned very dark and stormy.  This lonely column from the Temple of Olympian Zeus made a nice shot standing out agains the stormy sky.  I do not have Photoshop on my small travel laptop.  When I return from this trip I will rework all these images and replace them on the blog.
