Kein problem about the title - I just really liked the threes - the figures and the columns. You do very nice work!!

Nice take on the Fates. (Centre figure looks more like Atropos than the the others!)

@farfel53: thanks! I'll check the piece you're talking about, didn't know about it! :)

@fldave: lol! guess they must be after being around so many thousands of years ;)

@Dr.Confuser: I got lucky to see them as I was walking through the old Agora near Acropolis in Athens (I live here so I get the chance to walk around there a lot)

@Melethia: Liebe Melethia, tut mir Leid, hab gar nicht daran gedacht, dass diese Namen wahrscheinlich nicht so bekannt sind :(
Should have called them 3 Fates...

@cosprenks: thank you :)

@PBJ: ditto :)

@smichener: I didn't even think about it till I saw the picture on my pc afterwards... :)

@nickp37: wow! you know the Moirai!
what do you mean by "perspective correction"? I also thought that something was missing from this picture but can't put my finger on it. How could I have changed the perspective to make it better? Thanks in advance! :)

Great title. Great shot, too. If you're a fan of classic rock, Emerson, Lake and Palmer's 1st has a piece with this title, "The Three Fates:..." Great stuff.

I didn't know the fates were senior citizens! Interesting shot.

How interesting the framing here with the columns. Figures in silhouette are nice. Makes me speculate what they're talking aobut.

I try to guess titles from time to time - missed on this one. (Would have called it "Three".) Really a nice choice for the challenge - the light and tones are handled well here.

Interesting contemporary depiction of the Moirai. A bold composition that would benefit from a bit of perspective correction. Good monochrome conversion.
