Award Shortlist   


By TrevBatWCC    
The Pantheon was built by Emperor Hadrian between AD118 and AD125 and is one of Europe's best preserved ancient buildings. It superseded two previous temples on the site, the first having been built by Marcus Agrippa. Hadrian retained the name of the original builder on any Roman monuments he rebuilt or restored, hence the name in the lettering across the building's fašade. Very little of the marble seen on the interior walls is original, although it is thought to be to Hadrian's original decorative scheme. Much of the paved floor, however, although extensively repaired, is believed to be original.

As with your previous Rome uploads, this has a wonderfully theatrical feel, a grand stage with actors on display. I suppose Rome is like that...

Three very good complementary images, Trev. The detail is very well brought out and the two ladies either side on v3 is excellent composition.
