The Vatican

This week is Easter for many. It makes me think of the Vatican, and the flurry of activities which must be going on there.

Climbing up an endless stairway in the Vatican's dome I shot this image from one of the several terraces along the way. I've seen similar images in postcards, so it's not very original, but I have tried to give it a personal twist during processing. I increased the contrast, brought the saturation down, and dodged/burned some areas to maintain details.

The view from the top is simply amazing. The climb can be a bit of a challenge, especially for those who are claustrophobic, but it is worth it.
