Foro Romano
Posted By: Jasvox, 01-13-2010, 12:36 AM

I think I may have posted this one before in the past...not sure, but here it is anyway. This is the Roman Forum, taken back in 2006 or so. I processed it in LR and the noise and grain adds to the feel, in my opinion.

A fine historical site captured well and aptly processed.
Lots of ruins in one little area.
Interesting scene.

The picture transports me in another time... Well done. But also reminds me I have tons of unprocessed pics from my Italy trip last August

A very nice shot - I'd love to see this area in person.

Nice subject matter, definately an interest of mine here...
And quite nicely expressed, I like your PP too. One thing that would increase the impact for me - is to have the same picture with no people in it. Now that's really subjective - for me this place has a 'ghostly' sorta feel when there's very little or no tourists around. Anyway, thanks for sharing!

Wow, beautiful shot, and the PP suits it extremely well.

I wonder if it would not have been even "stronger" with the Forum more off-center (to the right), however. And I probably would have cloned out the crane at the right (that's nit-picking, I know).

Possibly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.
This reminds me of so many great times in a great city.
Well done!

A fitting treatment for such beautiful old and majestic ruins. You even made the people look like they fit in... wait a minute, those aren't togas...
