wonderful capture of the modern with ancient background
I really do not like so much to mix the ancient with the modern art, but it's good for your shot
well in sharpness and details

I have a shot almost identical to this one..! Great minds and all that?
I've recnetly been to Rome and have been posting quite a few images, one of which is of the white artwork that stands just to the left of this one - such strange objects to have in wonderful old Roman historical buildings.
A great shoit here and well exposed.

What a great idea, the juxtaposition of the old and the new. In Rome, the old is very old!
I love the contrasting shapes and the contyrasting textures, whilst the colours are very complementary.
My only suggestion for improvement is to crop from the right so that the focal statue is not so central. I have done it in PS and, to me, it does look improved. I have not posted it as a w/s as cropping is simple for anyone to achieve.
Have a good day,

I have seen this statue last week.
Very nice shot and very well composed.

A nice juxtapositioning of contrasting old new architectural & artistic styles. Good sharpness & symmetry. Have a great weekend!

A good showing of the Colliseum, but what is this grotesque statue resting in the front of a marvel of this world? Bad taste.....
A great juxtaposition of the two items, and an unusual way of viewing the colliseum, given that most people opt for an all-or-nothing view across the square. I really like this view.
Would be interested to see how this shot looked if you used a longer lens with a wide aperture, for a shallow field of focus; I think having the colliseum out-of-focus in the background would not reduce its grandeur or dominance in the frame.
