One of the 7 hills of ancient Rome, I still thought this was well worth a photo, even if the strong backlighting has not helped. Shot early morning at Capitoline Hill. Maybe late afternoon would be a better time for this view. Ps, is there a fig-leaf application in photoshop, lol!

On the whole, you have managed the backlight very well, though it would have been nice to have slightly more detail in the statuary despite the lack of a fig leaf application:-) I like the upwards point of view and the animated atmosphere. The attractive sky makes a fine backdrop to the whole.

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Une image impressionnante avec la présentation de ces deux statues géantes !
Très bonne présentation générale.

incredibile la quantità di persone che invadono Roma attratte dalla sua storia e dalla sua bellezza. Ogni visita porta nuove conoscenze, andare in questa città è come entrare in una foresta, dietro ogni albero ci sono cose nuove da scoprire e da ammirare.

By the shadows of people figure's, I could see there was a backlight effect - but superbly managed this view, Chris.
The place is outstanding, statues and buildings with the "rising" campanille on far, beautiful sight, vividness added by the tourists.
By the way: The Romans called Jeusalem in the turn of the 0 milenium by the name "Capitolina".

Great capture of the Capitoline Hill taken with a great symmetry in your composition to achieve an elegant and classy presentation. Like it! Very good execution.

The presence of the people has an effect of scale and is adding life to the scene. The point of view is showing the details, the colors of the sculpture and of the buildings. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

C'est une photo que j'attend de prendre moi-même avec beaucoup d'impatience.J'ai très hâte au mois de mai et profiter d'un aussi bel endroit. C'est vraiment impressionnant.

like this! It is an original shot of Rome and works beautifully. A real sense of scale too which would be lost without the human interest. Light management skilful and effective. Well done!
Enjoy the weekend - B.

I like the lighting showing the outline of those beautiful tourists especially the women. Nice capture of those architectures with good details. Well done, tfs.

Like this capture, original one , not sunlight but impressive statues as a frame and good symmetry
What I like the more is the people that add life and scale and all have a golden light on them ( PS or camera effect?)
Good scene of the girl in green at the right taken a ( trying) photo of her friend at the other side
Very well done
( Hope Piazza Navone will come )

Ciao Chris, lovely composition with a lot of people, great view of famous place, wonderful colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

I like very much how you played with the symmetry and the upward point of view in this composition, you filled the frame with interest.The architecture, the sky and the people, all convey dynamism that gives special vigour to the scene. You achieved superb details and fine colours against the backlight. A feature that enriches your composition is the people's shadows in the foreground and it's great that you left them intact with your careful framing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
