Aurorus Reflectus Colosseo

If you want to see how I made this (and how you can too!), visit my HDR Tutorial. I hope it gives you some new tricks!

Ahhh Rome! I love it there. Everywhere I walked was filled with art and inspiration. One of my hobbies is ancient Roman history, so the city had forever held a mythical romanticism place in my mind. I have a bad (good) habit of circumnavigating structures before taking photos to find the right angle. I say bad because some of these structures are so big that it's a major commitment to walk around the thing. Finally, however, it paid off and I found some wet pavement just outside one of the subways.


That purple streak in the upper left is very mysterious. I don't really remember what happened during the shot to cause that, but it was an unexpected and pleasant surprise.
