Greece - Olympia - Philippeion - 01 by GiardQatar Greece - Olympia - Philippeion - 01 by GiardQatar
The Philippeion in the Altis of Olympia was an Ionic circular memorial of ivory and gold, which contained statues of Philip's family, Alexander the Great, Olympias, Amyntas III and Eurydice I. It was made by the Athenian sculptor Leochares in celebration of Philip's victory at the battle of Chaeronea (338 BC). It was the only structure inside the Altis dedicated to a human. (Ref. Wiki)

Picture taken early in the morning just after sunrise.

3 shots (-2,0,2) process in Photomatix and then in Photoshop to complete
