The Forum

By TrevBatWCC    
After doing quite well recently for User Awards, I'd like to thank Phillip Minnis for his Guest Editor Award on my previous upload, Piazza San Pietro - I think it's only the second GEA I've ever had, so I'm really chuffed! Smile
The following day I visited the Forum and the Palatino (or Palatine Hill), which rises above the Forum, and is all included in your visit. It covers a vast area, and you can easily spend half a day there. This shows the Arco di Settimio Severo to the right, and to the left the Chiesa di San Giuseppe dei Falegnami (Church of St. Joseph of the Carpenters) which sits over what was Carcere Mamertino (Mamertine Prison), with Santi Luca e Martina (with the dome) located between the two.

Single Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Photomatix Pro and Photoshop Elements 11

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

Not the 'usual' tourist view, and all the better for it. There's a sense of day-to-day atmosphere as well as fantastic detail.
Congrats on the GEA!!!
