Another amphitheatre, this time in Athens, Greece, and not quite so steep as the one in Pergamum. There were no microphones back then, so acoustics were vitally important. The sound of the speaker would carry better in semi circular hillsides than on flat ground. In Rome they devised an artificial stadium at the Colosseum.

J'aime beaucoup ce point de vue sur amphithéâtre d'Athènes, il permet de voir presque toute la ville dans son ensemble. La lumière est magnifique sur les estrades.

La distance entre l'amphithéâtre et la montagne au loin donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'amphithéâtre d'Athènes. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Good evening Chris,
Modern restoration work still preserved the ancient texture on the Amphiteatre. High POV with town on the far background is extraordinary in contrast and well applied.
Clarity and light, colors and depth all culminate to a wonderful scenery.
Have a nice weekend,

another great amphitheatre, this time in Greece! Good proportions and composition with well chosen POV. I like the city and some mountains in the background providing some depth. Great colors and light.
Thanks for sharing

I loved this photo from the first time i laid my eyes on it!
Absolutely love this style with the wrap around effect. it just makes the photo seem larger and wider, increasing the depth in the scene.
excellent sharpness and detail.

this is one of my favourite places in Athens. I've been many times there and watched lovely and unforgettable performances. There's a magical atmosphere in the evenings and such a fine aura. You are offering us a view that's deep and clear, allows us to enjoy the architecture and places the ancient theatre in the context of the modern city. The summer sunshine of Athens looks so delightful and heart-warming in this humid evening of November! Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
