Photographer's Note

The Pantheon in Rome (1st century AD) - one of the most impressive buildings (and my personal favorite) you can see. Shot at night (without a tripod), where restaurants surrounding the Pantheon setup tables so that you can dine with this wonderful monument in the background. The giant domed structure behind the portico is the main chaimber - which is lit through a large circular opening at the top of the dome. Of course, this lets rain come in as well - so if you look carefully at the floor right below the dome, you will find small drainage holes which still work to this day! Image postprocessed in the gimp for autoleveling color, pushing sharpness to 40, and crop/scale.
