A close view of the details of the roofs of Hammamet, captured from the top of the Fort.
Hammamet is a town in Tunisia. Due to its beaches it is a popular destination for swimming and water sports. It was the first tourist destination in Tunisia. It is located in the south east of the northern peninsula of Cap Bon in the Governorate of Nabeul, on the northern edge of the Gulf of Hammamet.
The reported number of inhabitants varies from 20,000 to 70,000 and the population quadruples due to tourists in the summer.
It is particularly known for jasmine, and this is how the tourist resort of Yasmine Hammamet got its name. All over Hammamet, souvenirs made of jasmine can be found.
Reportedly, Tunisian ex-President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali spent his vacations in Hammamet.
Around Hammamet, all kinds of immigrant towns/suburbs are being built as immigrants from the southern part of the country come to find work. As a popular destination for tourists, it brings a lot of money to Tunisia.
The 2005 World Scout Conference was held in Hammamet.
I TETTI DI HAMMAMET
Una vista stretta dei particolari dei tetti di Hammamet,catturati dalla cima del Forte.
Hammamet è una città della Tunisia. Località costiera situata a sud-est di Cap Bon, sul golfo omonimo, nel Governatorato di Nabeul, è la principale località turistica del paese. La popolazione varia durante l'anno a causa delle presenze turistiche da 20.000 a 70.000 persone.
La città, fondata durante l'epoca romana, è stata meta di numerosi turisti celebri, fra i quali illustri politici come Winston Churchill, e scrittori come Gustave Flaubert.
In Italia è nota principalmente perché nel 1994 vi si rifugiò Bettino Craxi, sfuggendo ad un mandato di cattura internazionale e morendovi da latitante nel 2000.
Nella Marina Hammamet si tiene annualmente il festival musicale Night in Tunisiana.

Bonjour, cher Luciano,
Quand le modernisme côtoie l'ancien, cela crée un effet étonnant.
La beauté de l'édifice est manifeste, les paraboles nous rappellent que nous sommes au 21e siècle.
La composition est originale et fort bien choisie.
carlo62 (37340) 2013-07-21 1:07
classici tetti tunisini con le immancabili parabole.
La vista dal forte è molto bella, ci sono stato molti anni fa, ma ho ancora un piacevole ricordo.
Ottimo taglio e ottima composizione, c'è un bel movimento costituito dai vari piani dei terrazzi.

a shot full of traditional architectural magnificence that is tempered with the needs of modern man. It is a strange mix but does not dilute the beauty of this place. Execution perfect and a compelling presentation.
Enjoy your Sunday - Brian.
krzychu30 (15510) 2013-07-21 2:56
delightful combination of two dominating colors-just white and blue,but the visual effect and graphics make the image are so eye-catching!I love also details of this architecture-ornamentation are really lovely.
Perfect presentation and execution my friend!
Wish You a nice sunday
snunney (88465) 2013-07-21 3:35
The point of view makes the most of the graphical lines offered by these roofs with their different levels. Even the ubiquitous satellite dishes with their trailing wires play a part. Good rendering of tones and textures.
jmdias (58185) 2013-07-21 3:40
very beautiful architectonic details we can enjoy here despite the scenery looks something chaotic. nice light and sharpness.

SnapRJW (31625) 2013-07-21 5:56
The appeal of this shot lies in the colours Luciano. Blue and white is a combination that is clean and classic. Here the blues are varied and for the most part form the most attractive decorative details on the roof tops. Do the satellite dishes add or detract from the composition? I don't dislike them as they are part and parcel of modern life and in this instance tell us about the people who live in this traditional-looking building. A fine shot, I love the open and airy feel. Warm regards Rosemary
bayno (18344) 2013-07-21 7:10
Ciao Luciano, ripeto smebra la grecia ma qui grazie agli ottimi dettagli si distinguono chiaramente le mezzelune rivolte in su e i classici decori arabi dei balconi, bella la luce e il vivido contrasto tra le due tonalità...
chrisvek (7001) 2013-07-21 7:50
So unique composition and amazing detais.Splendid lightning usage and perfect colors.Nice framing and POV.Well done and thank you.
Have a nice day
mvdisco (17784) 2013-07-21 7:58
Bonjour Luciano, Ciao,
Superbes couleurs et point de vue ,
belle composition et présentation,
J'aime bien l'architecture et les détails,
psamaddar (1089) 2013-07-21 9:17
Good shot Luciano. good color and contrast nicely shown with the blue and white terrace. Nice picture.
holmertz (43795) 2013-07-21 10:19
It's mainly the designs of the buildings that tell us this is not Greece, but from the colours it could have been Santorini or anywhere. Very nice combinations of blue and white anyway, with a very steep diagonal staircase leading up to the roof. The satellite discs don't really fit the surroundings, but unfortunately they have become so common now it's impossible to wish them gone. You have handled the extreme light very well.
bartekp (4746) 2013-07-21 12:22
Sunny white composition with some blue. I like interesting POV.
Have a nice evening
dkmurphys (51573) 2013-07-22 1:33
A spectacular capture of blue and white combination for those buildings. Well spotted, enjoy a nice week.
macjake (60048) 2013-07-22 16:17
what jumped out at me immediately is the sharpness. Even at the top of the white rails the blue rounded pieces are so clear and focused.
and its so easy to over expose these white subjects, but you have controlled it smartly my friend :)
whats not to like here!!!
mcmtanyel (15647) 2013-07-22 20:00
A beautiful almost B&W photo! (OK, the B stands for blue in this case.) I like the various lines and the geometric shapes they define. Excellent composition.
PS. You're right, I should have used a tripod. I was hoping, on a sunny day, the shutter speed would be fast enough but apparently, it was not. Furthermore, that kind of detail cannot be seen on the little screen of the camera. Had I caught that in time, I would have tried it again with a tripod.
Fis2 (88885) 2013-07-23 0:08
Excellent colors and sharpness.
Have a nice day
ourania (35164) 2013-07-23 2:45
hai inquadrato questa vista sui tetti intricati molto bene e la nitidezza e' magnifica. C' e' un intricatissimo gioco di prospettive che si comincia a seguire per poi perdersi in un mare di dettagli; eppure tutto continua a sembrare cosi chiaro:) Hai gestito la luce superbamente e l' interazione di tonalita' del bianco e del azzuro e' piacevolissima. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona giornata,

A beautiful kind of architecture but this harmony is destroyed by antennas :-).
Yes I know cameras haven't any function to erase such kind of unwanted elements during taking photos :-)
But seriously - I like the colouring, composition and an interesting form of building.... and an excellent framing.
Warm regards, Leszek
pierrefonds (59426) 2013-07-23 5:14
Les assiettes satellites font parties du paysage mais sont un obstacle à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture des toits des maisons. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
Royaldevon (32681) 2013-07-23 6:18
Ciao Caro Luciano,
Apart from the 'style' of the houses, this could so easily be Greece, with its predominance of blue and white. Isn't it amazing how technology has spread, now most places have satellite dishes!
This is a really nicely composed shot, the buildings sharply exposed and the light very well controlled, despite the strong sunshine on white walls.
Have a lovely day,
adramad (39806) 2013-07-23 9:14
White and blue .... two colors that harmonize well in this Mediterranean style of constuccion, airy building with varied volumes and shapes.
Wonderful colorful on a sunny beautiful day.
Good management of light and sharpness.
Well done. I like.
Have a nice day.
Silvio1953 (128528) 2013-07-23 12:00
Ciao Luciano, bella inquadratura con favolosi colori mediterranei, splendida luce e ottima nitidezza, bravo, ciao Silvio
Urs (14082) 2013-07-25 0:14
Your title is spot on, there are countless roofs, but all in bright white, setting a beautiful contrast to the deep blue sky. It is rather abstract shot, but full of details. Well done
mkamionka (32043) 2013-07-25 5:24
very attractive eye catching composition here. I like the combination and cotrast of the old traditional and new modern elements like the traditional decorations and the satellite dishes. Pleasant contrasting blue white colors.
Strong light which contributed to the feeling of a sunny summer day,
Gigidusud (17615) 2013-07-25 14:25
Un bon point de vue sur ces toits terrasses avec une belle architecture. Très jolie composition en bleu et blanc. Bien vu!
Indrasish (2893) 2013-07-25 22:18

Good morning and wish you a happy day,
SWEETFREEDOM (23280) 2013-07-26 23:58
interessante vista sui tetti con decorazioni molto particolari. colori ed luce ottimi.
serp2000 (41700) 2013-07-28 21:44
Good July morning, Luciano,
When I saw a thumbnail I thought about some Greek scene, these traditional colors don't give me another idea ;)
The satellite antennas look some strange on this old roof. Perfect composition!
have a nice week!
mirosu (15126) 2013-07-29 1:45
This are beautiful housing roofs in excellent light revealing the exotic detail so superbly. Interesting architecture and great lead in lines enveloped by contrasting bright blue sky and this has greatly contributed to this impressive shot coupled by the nice white & blue colors and shadows. Stunning shot, a pleasure to view. Greetings, Miro
nikkitta (16230) 2013-07-29 13:32
What can I said
A perfect capture about color contrast , frame included
What I like the more is the blue steps going up to the top terrace
Congrats for creating such a beautiful capture
Miguel82 (26288) 2013-07-30 5:28
A superb presentation and nice view of this type of architecture adaptated to hot summers
Fine colors and clear shot
Have a nice afternoon
fabbs99 (16813) 2013-07-31 6:29
Wonderful colors and a great image.I love the blue and white combinations.
Very attractive capture in great contrasts and colors. Well done.
Enjoy a good evening.
Angshu (56460) 2013-08-02 2:08
Only blue & white...I thought only Greece revels in this colour combination. Beautiful picture with neat lines and fine exposure highlighting the fine contrast between the two colours against the clear blue sky!
Have a great WE
ikeharel (61549) 2013-08-09 0:54
Fabulous white and blue decorations, Luciano. Contrast to blue sky is fantastic.
Three beautiful balconies, a viewpoint over town and probably the sea.
Good photojob you had done here, salute.
NorthernLight (2377) 2013-12-03 10:06
a very playful architecture. Great colors, pastel tones. A clear and detailed image.
Very interesting and very beautiful!
All the best
