"... just next of the tourist's path."
Everything but a tourist snapshot. This looks like an old world painting.
I like the colour tone of the image, the mood and the 3-D feeling that the lighting creates.
I don't know what is at the bottom of the picture, but I would have liked to see just a little bit more of the "base" of the building.
Very nice.

Thank you! It is taken on the road back from Capitolium to Piazza Venezia, next to that street are the ruins of the Forum. The place looksed like big excavation and construction site, therefore I cut off the bottom of the frame.
