This will be my second time participating in the Monochrome Madness Challenge (MMC) hosted by Leanne Cole over at her blog, Leanne Cole PHOTOGRAPHY. This will be week #14! WOW! I am so amazed and thankful for Leanne’s great efforts in making this challenge alive weeks after weeks! It is a fun challenge and a great way to explore others’ photography.
For this week, I have decided to go with the title, ‘The once powerful Roman Empire.’ I was in Rome, Italy last year. This was taken in Roman Forum (Ancient Rome) while exploring the amazing city of Rome. I was particularly drawn to this ruin and after post-processing it to a monochrome, I loved it even more. It says so much about the once powerful Roman Empire (from the height) but it was just ancient now (from the monochrome). This was taken using Nikon D7000 with a Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 lens and processed using Adobe Lightroom 5 by reducing the vibrance and saturation.

As usual, the weekly MMC will be posted on Wednesday morning (Australian time, GMT +11 hours) in Leanne Cole’s Blog so go over to check out the other entries! They are all very impressive and interesting to look at 🙂
Hope you enjoy this week MMC!

Thanks Pedro! Glad you like it 🙂
Nice shot. We can’t imagine something so old in Australia. This is what’s makes Europe so beautiful.
Thanks so much Erwin! I am glad you like the photo too 🙂 Yes, I agree. Europe has so much history, culture and arts that makes everything so beautiful. I only had the opportunity to visit Italy but would definitely loved to visit other parts of Europe! Hopefull one day 🙂
It would be a great pleasure to show you around Switzerland and France. 🙂
How nice of you Erwin! 🙂 That would be very lovely! I really hope I can go there one day 🙂

I cracked into laughter when I saw this! You’re funny Erwin! Thanks for the thoughts :p mid-August till end of October seems to be the best time to visit Europe! Not too cold or too hot 🙂
