Stuccoed

A bit of ancient royal propaganda on the north face of the Palace at the ruins of Palenque in Chiapas, Mexico:

Stuccoed

This stucco is a bit tricky to get a good image of — you can’t get near it (for its own sake), and other parts of the structure it’s on block your view from ground level. So you need to work from a distance with a long lens.

I used Topaz Adjust to bring out the colors and structure a bit in this shot.
