Another shot of the beautiful medieval fortress, Dubrovnik. As one can see on that picture, Croatia is a kind of religious crossroad in these unstable Balkans.
Indeed, on the very center, you can see the old Seferad Synagogue in Europe built in the XVth century, in its back the Saint-Blaise church with the highest dome elevated in 1715. On the very right top side, it's the Assumption cathedral rebuilt in 1713 after the great 1667 hearthquake : before that, there were a byzantin church built during the VIIth century. Be careful, the great tower on the left is a trap : it's not a religious building this time but the clock tower built in 1444 under which you walk to access the old harbour.
Ran through Ptlens, rotated and USM applied.

Nice clear photo with the terracotta roofs that I like so much.

Marvellous shot. I really like how you used the roof tiles to create a very deep perspective. Nice bright red roofs and a good view on the medieval buildings.

Very very good perspective Steven. Incredible DOF and colours, the foreground's not neglected, the horizon is straight... Everything perfect, congrats.

Il faut avoir gardé un beau souvenir de Dubrovnik pour se rendre compte à quel point cette vue est réussie (et magnifique!)..
Bravo Steven et merci pour la photo..

Cette vue de Dubrovnik est vraiment magnifique Steven! La composition depuis les toits est bien vue, et les couleurs bien saturées. Une belle vision de la ville et de ses monuments religieux, j'aime beaucoup, bravo!

Hi Steven, Wonderful shot. I really like the intense red of the roofs and the perspective. Having a high placed horizon and the small patch of water gives a welcome contrast with the rest of the picture.
