St Peters Dome
Lens: 18-135 Camera: k-5 Photo Location: Rome, Italy 
Posted By: markvc, 6 Days Ago

I would have liked to have this more centered, but the main alter is in the way and I was pretty sure they did not want me to climb on it.
Even so, I was happy with the results. The Latin inscription starting "Tu Es Petrus" is the translated "You are Peter, and on this rock..."
An impressive building all around - and huge - bigger than you would expect.

You and I may like to have things centered, but the artists say that the best photos are at least some bit off-center and not completely symmetric. You did a fine job.

Climb on that altar and you get a long stretch in the Vatican dungeons... I like the impression of the dome rotating and turning the vaulted ceilings adjacent!
