Standing Tall in Rome

Project 52 Entry #38

A quick post today  as its shaping up to be a busy one. This was taken this past summer in Rome. This is the view walking out of the Roman Forum and Palantine Hill. Actually the view standing pretty much anywhere is quite spectacular.  I was revisiting these shots and realized that I hadn’t really posted any from this incredible part of Rome. There’s some more that I’ll be sharing in the next little while.

    Wonderful. It’s a lot better than the images of my trips in the 80’s.

    • Thanks. Yes it is HDR. It’s 3 bracketed exposures processed in Photomatix and Photoshop.

  11. As you said, the views from almost anywhere in Rome is fantastic, the art in photography is to make sense of it all and create something which brings to the viewer what you experienced. This you have done really well here, Edith.

  18. A very nice image Edith. I have a fascination with ancient Rome anyway so I love it. Everything about this image just pulls me right into it.
