    In talking about composition, would you have included the natural bit (the tree) in the far left margin? I can see arguments for yes and no.

    Beautiful shot. 200 bonus points for posting the picture within 8 hours of the start time.

    I was more interested in the columns straddling the bottom corner of the frame and creating that blue sword shape within the columns and the corner of the frame. Putting myself in the position that removed the tree, removed the various blue sky shapes, which I kinda like.


    These are actual Roman columns in Nyon, Switzerland. It's funny how the subconscious works. When I read the assignment, all I could think of was a clove of garlic......... I was riding the moto this morning down to the lake and when I saw the columns, the light went on.

    Oh, I was chopping garlic for tonight's dinner when the title "Pi" came to me......hmmm

    And for the record, this is the first assignment I've ever turned in early.......

    Interesting, I never knew the Romans invaded Switzerland!

    great shot. tree or no tree? Hmmm... I too would probably have gone the no tree route, if that had been possible, as well, though it doesn't have any seriously negative impact with this shot as it is so "removed" from the whole being mere wisps of thin branches, and at least the placement within the frame and the manor in which they line the edge just between the column and top of the picture does add a nice fringe just in that section. (boy, talk about a non-comitial statement! Ha Ha!)

    Shhhhhh.........
    not too mention that the "blue" in the rondel is not exactly "blue" and we all know how sensitive BMW is about the proper use, display and color correctness of the rondel! Quick, remove it before we all get hit with a big law suit! Ha Ha!

    Yes, the Romans got around. You can find their litter ( bridges, roads, aqueducts, coliseums....) as far north as England, they never did get Germany, despite the great scene in The Gladiator they never established settlements there. To the west they held as far as Spain and Portugal, North African coast all the way from Morroco to Egypt, eastward all of Turkey to Iraq and above that, all of the current Baltic/Slavic countries ( formerly Yugoslavia and who can keep track of what they're called this week

    I'm still looking for that one coin that they left behind, that would make some serious Bling for my 12 year old at his disco

    I do believe the Swiss might head that list.
