The Ruins

The Colosseum in Rome, Italy is one of those structures that isn't done justice until you actually see and step inside it. Casually walking through the Colosseum, I spent my time exploring it for much longer than the average visitor. After finding a great viewpoint I ended up waiting patiently as other visitors came and went, finally able to get the image I wanted. The history of the Colosseum is long, brutal and bloody; we know that before we even step inside. But, in many ways it no longer brings forth those emotions. Crafting a black and white HDR image helped me express the feelings I had as I walked these hallowed corridors and thought back on the people who fought and died, or cheered the struggles of others.
