The classical monument of Italy! It seems huge (and it is...!)! I made a WS to give light to your photo!
As Constantinos has said a huge place and your POV has emphasised the fact. Earthy colours always mean more light. Con's workshop has increased the light and the detail. TFS,
PS want some cold? Step down this way.
I'll start with a small correction to your note, Robert: if I recall right the Colosseum wasn't built BC but AD ;o). I think it was started in 72 AD by Vespasianus and finished some 10 years later under the reign of his son Domitianus.
I'll be there in little over a month, and hope to capture it as you did - with very little people about ;o). The human element does give a nice idea of the size of the building, though. I think the shot is somewhat tilted.
Thanks to you I know how the Coloseum centre looks. I could not there enter. I had time too little. (translator)

I love this scene of the Colosseum interior. It gives a good scal and perspective of its enormity. I'm not sure if the border and shading (vignetting?) on the sides of the photo is suitable IMHO.
