Blue Hour

Being July, it was unbelievably hot. After a visit inside, I had the chance to grab something to eat at one of the cafes followed by a long, refreshing drink from one of the water fountains. It was sundown so I had the opportunity to take a few shots in varying lighting conditions.

A wonderful, iconic building, Ayush...your picture is very good, but the lighting seems to me to be emotionally intrusive and harsh.
Ayush Basu: I think you make a good alternate view point. And I have to admit that I normally do not think in that perspective so your comment is refreshing to me, Ray.

I like the different lighting with the blues on the lower level and the the amber rising up.
Ayush Basu: It attracted me too, Alan.

One could imagine they were Roman horses, Ayush
Ayush Basu: Yes Lisl, I imagine this was a bee hive of activities of different kinds earlier.
It looks wonderful lit like this Ayush
Ayush Basu: It works for me, Bill.
This is a superb view Ayush, I like the yellow against the blue.
Ayush Basu: That makes two of us then, Chad. Thank you.
This is amazing and well done!
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind remark, Mary.
Dramatic lighting,especially the top level
Ayush Basu: It was rather pleasing, Martin.
We haven't seen this but back in 2003 we went to Verona where they have a similar, but smaller, building like this where each year they hold a big festival of opera performances within the arena area itself.
Ayush Basu: I heard of that place in passing and on this particular trip, we did not make a trip to Verona, Brian.

C'est bien mis en valeur avec les lumières.
Ayush Basu: Merci, Martine. j'aime les lumières . il est une bonne heure
I liked the light at that time of the day.
Super shot, Ayush! I really like the lighting.
Ayush Basu: Very kind of you to say so, Frank. I found it appealing too.
Fine image, Ayush.

a wonderful image!
Ayush Basu: Vielen dank, Philine!
You must like the Colosseum a lot.
Ayush Basu: As prescribed by law, LC grin
You got a good one there with that great light.
Ayush Basu: Thank you Michael, I like the light too.
Come to think of it, Ayush, I never saw it at night because I was on a day excursion from the ship. I can imagine how mesmerizing it was was you in that blue hour. Fabulous.
Ayush Basu: It was mesmerizing indeed, Ginnie, although I was somewhat irritated at being jostled by a lot of throng of visitors. Oh well grin
This is spectacular...
Ayush Basu: That is a generous remark, Larry - thank you!

I love the blues and golds, a perfect capture.
Ayush Basu: I was lucky, CP. I simply happened to be around there at this time of the day and had no idea of the lights.
Beautifully done, Ayush! I was only there early morning so did not get such wonderful light!
Ayush Basu: Thank you Elizabeth, I know - we have limited time and we try to make the most of it.
