Fish-eye Porta Nigra

Porta Nigra

This picture shows a bit of a distorted reality, as it is stitched together using multiple photos, all taken from the same point, which causes things away from the center to appear slightly 'rounded'.

The Porta Nigra, of course, is the remaining front gate of Trier, built by the Romans in 180 AD. As usual, there's more about it on Wikipedia.


  1. Interesting technique. It really makes a eye catching photo.

  2. I like the photo and the lighting! I also like the contrast between old and new!

  3. An eye catching photo to be sure. Good one!
