Hi, Rey! Good to see you posting again ~ especially with entries as impressive as this.
You've captured the massive scale of the Colosseum perfectly with all those little ant-people below. You must have shot this from the "nosebleed" section of the arena!
A beautiful, well-composed photo of a classic Roman site. #1451764

We have all seen the gladiators fighting in the movies and places like this in ruin cry out about the death and the way the crowds reacted to it. Fasinating place with so much history behind it, the ruins always tell a story. Beautifully captured my friend. #10053172

Laura E. Swan 4/2/2012 10:27:47 AM

Amazing to see. I'd love to tour this in person. I marvel that they were so far advanced, as far as architecture, and yet they were so barbaric in other ways. I bet a few Christians were thrown to lions here as well...? :(

Wonderful view from where you stood, Rey. Great job her!!!

I've missed so much being away from BP as much as I've been and I've particularly missed my "vicarious vacations" to faraway places compliments of your wonderful gallery and commentary, Rey. Hope to find more time soon to visit more and your gallery are good therapy! :) Congratulations, my friend, on a beautifully captured Finalist and all the best in the upcoming round! #10120176

Rona L. Schwarz 5/2/2012 8:44:45 PM

Val is so eloquent, she's a hard act to follow, Rey! I could just say "more of the same"...I remember visiting these impressive ruins with my father as part of a High School graduation present to Europe and being very awed. Your image brings that all back to me. Exquisite detail and clarity, Rey. Congrats on a marvelous Finalist! #10120199
