    If you open whide your shutter and keep the camera steady for long time all the lights are empowered. Depens also in what period you have visited the city,some days in february or during spring can be really clear. rome is not far from the sea and when the "ponentino"wind blows the sky can be really clear.

    They wisely shy away from the infamous Roman traffic .... more commonly known as "The Traffic from Hell."

    Panth, if you do be careful. My aunt and her friend took a trip to Italy (granted this was the `60s but still) and she said the men were frightening and would just come right up and grope them in broad daylight. Neither of them felt safe enough to enjoy the place. I`ve heard from others Greece is the same way, and that`s a shame. It`s really dampened my enthusiasm for trips to any southern European locale.

    tedgp is correct. Whoever did this was heavy-handed with after-the-fact manipulation.

    Plus, the rotation of the starfield in the background is a dead giveaway that it was added in post.

    Either that, or the people in several shots remained motionless for two or three hours.

    nice reminder of my trip with the wife to Rome this year.
    There was no groping by strangers of my wife and the traffic was fine.

    Seemed like some "Angels and Demons" movie trailer. Quite a bit over dramatic with the music.

    The Windy City and I have had many great times together, thanks.

    It just strikes me that a place that requires all female visitors to their old cathedrals and monasteries to cover their heads (for modesty`s sake, of course) also gave us Silvio Berlusconi.

    Irony is dead and mounted on a fireplace wall.
