(Sigiriya, Sri Lanka)
f/4 || 1/30s || @17mm || ISO200 || Canon 5D || Canon 17-40mm f/4

Frescoes that are believed to date back to the 5th century. Even after over 1500 years, they've retained their detail and color (well they also received a little help from an Italian restorer).

Wow, this is great. I always find it difficult to take pictures of subjects like this without rendering them too flat. But you managed it.
The 17-40 on a full frame is amazing.
