Arch of Constantine by csillogo11

The Arch of Constantine (Italian: Arco di Costantino) is a triumphal arch in Rome, situated between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill. It was erected by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine I’s victory over Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge on October 28, 312.[1] Dedicated in 315, it is the latest of the existing triumphal arches in Rome, and the only one to make extensive use of spolia, re-using several major reliefs from 2nd century imperial monuments, which give a striking and famous stylistic contrast to the sculpture newly created for the arch.
The arch is 21 m high, 25.9 m wide and 7.4 m deep. It has three archways, the central one being 11.5 m high and 6.5 m wide, the lateral archways 7.4 m by 3.4 m each. The top (called attic) is brickwork reveted with marble.

Gotham by Night by Thousand_Word_Images

© 2015 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

While in NYC I went up several of the skyscrapers at night. The observation platform at the Rockefeller Center is far from being the highest, but it wins for allowing you to view many of the best buildings in NYC in one view. Buildings like the Empire State building, One World Trade Center in the distance, the Bank of America tower (right), the Chysler building on the right. The light pollution on the ride side of the image is Times Square. The New York skyline is changing, with the massively tall (but very thin) 432 Park Avenue condo building now dominating the skyline over Central Park (I’ll share some shots of it in my upcoming article). There are another five towers taller than the Empire State in the works right now. It is fantastic to see the Big Apple so fully recovered from the devastation of 9/11. This is a four shot pano, stitched and processed in Lightroom.
