Arch of Constantine Detail

This photograph is a close up of the top right section of the Arch of Constantine. It was built between 312 and 315 AD and commemorates Constantine I’s victory over Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge. When photographing statues and works of art such as this, the most important aspect is the lighting; the more diffuse (overcast) the lighting the more the image will lose any 3D qualities. So I captured the above photograph at night when I knew it would be floodlit, giving the details a very 3D look and feel.
