The Colosseum in Rome at Blue Hour. I think this view as you come out of the metro, is one of the best, if not the best vantage point. But it's difficult to photograph with the crowds and passing traffic. It was completed in 80 ad. More info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colosseum

I'll never get tired of such a scene!
glad you were able to add this one to your personal collection!
great blue hour lighting, but the best part has to be the yellow light and coloring in the arches.
surprising to see so few people around.

Le cadrage serré met le Colisé en évidence. L'utilisation d'un ISO de 1250, d'une vitesse d'exposition lente et probablement d'un support permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture du Colisé. Cela a aussi un effet spécial sur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

a splendid picture of the Colosseum, a wonderful full frame that enhances the attractive play of curves and allows the sharp details and magnificent contrasting colours achieve their greatest visual impact. Your light management is remarkable and the evening shadows most effective. What a wonderful place to hang out, I love the atmosphere too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
