After a few HOT days in Rome I was lucky to find Colosseum on the last day of my vacation and reaching the last minutes of the "blue hour". Many thanks to the British(?) photographer who chased, well more like politely asked a couple sitting on the steps to please move as we had a great opportunity of shooting this great architecture without seeing any tourists in front of it. He eagerly shouted "Yes, I got it!" after shooting, and frankly I believe that so did I. Well, it is up to you to decide...

Blue hour shots are my favorite.
The orange yellow lights look fantastic peering thru the openings of the colosseum.
Nice composition and colours. It may need a little tilting, but overall its a great photo!
i have some blue hour shots as well
Thanks for sharing
