A weekend in Rome

    1) St Peters (taken with the 50mm 1.4)

  2. John,

    Thank you - these pictures just made me want to go to Rome instead of Peniscola this year! :biggrin: (Actually reaffirmed our decision to do so)

    Don't know if it's the done thing to tag your own photos on someone else's thread, but this is another view #9, Il Vittoriano. A bit of PP to darken out the odd detail in the building, but otherwise untouched.

  4. That is fine with me Steve!

    I quite like your shot but it looks like there is something sticking out of the top of the building on towards the left hand side. My guess it is something to do with the refurbishment work that is still ongoing - I would have a go with the clone tool there :wink:.
