That's pretty great there - *great* colours & saturation. I like the framing of the path too.

For me, the dark clouds are over-dramatised - they actually pull me away from the subject and distract me from it. Not sure what could be done there though, dunno offhand if lighting them would work...

Okay, I feel like I shouldn't be saying anything because I've only been shooting for two weeks buuutttt I just wanted to say:
1) I reeaalllyy like the shot! Very cool :)
2) I agree with Ben with the over-dramatized clouds. It's kind of distracting for me as is the bright light in the centre. As cool as it looks, I find myself staring at the light more than the Coliseum.

It's a cool shot. That bright cloud is stealing the scene but it does draw your eye in. I might actually brighten the Coliseum to make it stand out more, and I'd likely crop the left side about 15-20%.

This is a shot you play with for hours - enjoy. :)

I think the dramatic clouds suits the image.... my nitpik is the hot spot in the middle and I think it needs a bit of level...

this is a great shot...

I might have blow about 8 gig if I was shooting that sight... so many different things to try...
