One of the most beautiful and best-preserved reminders of the glory of ancient Rome is the Pantheon. It's difficult to get a unique shot of this beautiful building. I don't know that I've done so here, but at least it's not quite run-of-the-mill.
At the top of this dais is an object even older than the Pantheon, an Egyptian obelisk. It's an indication of how chock-full of ancient artifacts Rome really is that ancient Egyptian obelisks are something of an ordinary object.
Taken about 45 minutes after sunrise. Nobody around except another photographer.

You have chosen an excellent pov for this shot. The sweeping curves of the steps of the Dias make a very interesting foreground. There is a warm natural light that brings out the orange and yellow tones on the surrounding buildings.very well done.

I admire your composition in here. Great idea to take the photo from exactly this POV it resulted in very interesting perspective. The colors are well managed and so is the light. Nice clarity and sharpness.

You used very well tour wide angle to add perspective effect to the composition. Sharpness and exposure are excellent, the golden light on the buildings on the right is wonderful. Very good work !
Have a nice day,
