I stitched a few images together to try to get a view that represented what I felt I saw when in the Colosseum. I'm not sure I was completely successful but I'm satisfied with this image. It was taken on Bastille Day in 2007.

I'd walked around a while looking for a POV where the fewest tourists would be annoyingly close in the final image. This was what I settled for.

You did very well with this one, Mike. I really get a feel for the whole Colosseum-it tweaks my imagination, thinking of what might have occurred there. Excellent!

Thanks Cindy and Ron.

I appreciate the feedback (constructively critical as well) even if my images are not works of art!

Good perspective and an excellent reminder of what passed for entertainment in this ancient amphitheatre, Mike. Nicely done!
