Photographer's Note

This photo (in background the cupola of San Pietro) has been taken putting the zoom lens of my compact digital camera through the keyhole of an ancient door of wood, one of the incomes of the villa of the Priorato di Malta on the Aventino, of forehead to the Church of sant' Anselmo.
For the strongest difference of light between the dark tunnel of the plants and the Cuppolone illuminated on the background, I have zoomed at maximum and I have manually managed the fire (to the infinite) and the exposure (I have underexposed of 3 stop).
In workshop you can see also the door and the hole.
