    Hi Luciano,
    What a beautiful scene, the delicate detail of the statue and behind it, the most amazing looking stained glass to compliment the white stone. This upwards point of view makes the whole scene very imposing and majestic, but this is balanced by the gentle expressions on the statues. This is really beautifully done. thanks for sharing, and happy Easter!
    All the best

    Ciao Carlo,
    Questo posto sembra veramente antico, l'architettura come qualcosa da un'epoca completamente diversa. Come con tante scene dal vostro bel paese, le texture delle facciate degli edifici è notevolmente vibrante. Mi piace che hai incluso la fontana circolare nella scena troppo, è ben illuminata, luminoso e allegro e lancia uno stato d'animo completamente diverso sulla scena, senza questo l'intera immagine sarebbe stata più scuro e più presentimento. Molto ben fatto,
    Grazie come sempre e buona Pasqua!

    Hi Will
    I have heard of this place before, and always found it such a strange subject, that people would be displaced in this manner is amazing. This is a touching photo when seen I conjunction with your note, the closed sign being very prominent and apt. The light falling on the old phone is very magical too.
    From the fact that you took this, does this mean you can visit this place? I would have thought it would be completely off limits to citizens, but if not, it would be a place I would love to see.
    Has the church at least survived intact or has that also been destroyed?
    Thanks as always
    Noel

    Hi Eleni,
    What a sense of calm there is from this image, and not only that, but it feels like a privilege to see this scene, it seems we are peeping into a very hidden place here. The building is such a beautiful design, and the greenery is like something from the garden of Eden. Wonderful image, thanks as always for sharing.
    Happy Easter!

    Hi JJ
    This is a very clever composition, the smaller windows of the right throw nice off centre balance to the large ones on the left. While the wall is very dark, and the lower windows are too, the upper ones reflecting the light balance that out nicely too. The flowers stand out perfectly against the dark features. Very nicely done on a picture all about balance.
    Best wishes

    Salut Christiane
    Quelle belle image c'est, la lumière est si douce et délicate, tout comme les réflexions de cette scène paisible dans l'eau. Je peux imaginer cela comme un tableau accroché dans toute la maison. Une composition parfaite sur la scène, merci pour le partage.
    Meilleurs voeux de l'Irlande, et de joyeuses Pâques.

    Hi Stephen,
    This is a lovely panoramic shot, and includes so much of the detail of the surrounding architecture, as well as the fine paving of the square. The statue makes a perfect centerpiece, and I really like these trees with their bare spooky branches, in direct contrast to the sunny warm blue sky. Great shot and note, thanks!

    Hi Mesut
    You took this at a perfect moment, it seems like this rooster is singing, perhaps an audition for a TV show! The little chick is so delicate and is a perfect inclusion for a post today.

    Hi Rosemary
    I often find it incredible what can be read inside the detail of stained glass, and this is a fine example. I have to admit, I didn't even know there was such a thing as a bonnet maker :) I know the word bonnet and it certainly has close connections to easter, so a very apt post for today indeed. Beautiful colors, and nicely done on the framing of this too, I always find close ups of windows difficult as the lines of the edges always seem to warp funny shapes and makes the image hard to crop. This is perfect though.
    Happy Easter to you and yours!
    Best wishes

    Hi Athanasios
    What a unique shot! I have no idea how you managed to get this angle, but beautifully done. The gaping mouths of the little birds makes a fascinating subject and the whole scene is framed beautifully with the out of focus greenery.

    Hi Costantino,
    What an incredible sky, its like its on fire and the red and orange hues look so beautiful with the blue grey tones underneath. The silhouettes make this even nicer still putting a very nice human touch into the scene. I can imagine these people in your shot admiring this incredible sky.

    Hi Petar
    Really beautiful view on this tower, and the deep blue of the background is a perfect way to present this well lit structure. The lights help to define its design really well, and including the foliage at ground level like this gives a really cool aspect of scale. Lovely place and shot.
    Cheers

    Hi Abmdsudi
    That you mention fingerprints, that was what I thought of when I saw the thumbnail, finger prints or perhaps animal scales! A beautiful sight, and really a testament to what people can achieve. Its so cool when something created for such a real world purpose ends up being so beautiful to view as well. I love how it transitions from green to brown as well.

    Hi Daniel,
    That looks like some range of products for sale, and as you mention it looks truly authentic too. I would imagine in the tourist areas, all these products would be packaged in tiny take home bags at ten times the price! I like that you included the long leading view down the street which alludes to your note about the ease to get lost in a place like this.
    Beautiful range of colors too.
    All the best

    Hi Craig,
    Have you stumbled upon some remote clown college? These clothes are possibly the most colorful I've ever seen, and they do a great job of lifting the dark light in the lower part of the frame, its almost like two images, this and then the brighter painted skies above. There is something quite spooky about this sky, but again its balanced well by all the clown costumes! Very nice moment to capture, a unique view to say the least.
    All the best
    Noel
