Statue in Piazza del Campidoglio

photograph of a statue in Piazza del Campidoglio in Rome, Italy

My friends and I were pass through Piazza del Campidoglio in the late evening when I captured this image of one of the statues in the piazza.  We walked by it earlier that day but the statue was in the shade so the lighting was very cool and flat.  The evening sun cast its warm, hard light on the statue in a way that made for a much better photo.  I considered converting this image to black and white or even just desaturating the colors.  Eventually I decided I liked the warmth and intensity of the colors just the way they were recorded by my camera.


Red Eyes

This summer I was hiking in a coastal forest in North Carolina and noticed this dragonfly perched on a sun drenched leaf.  The shaded background helped to make the image a little more dramatic.

Vatican Guard

I’m not sure what this guard was protecting in the Vatican but the doorway looked impressive enough.
