The Golden Roman Forum

The Roman Forum: in Gold

I look at this photograph of the Roman Forum and fill in the blanks – how majestic the scene would be two millennia ago! The sun was low as I took this – hence the golden hue cast across the scene.


This image was a seven-exposure HDR on the Canon 6D, using native bracketing. Post-processing in Photomatix and Adobe Photoshop CS6.
