bella piazza e bella luce, il cielo è una parte molto importante della tua composizione.
Bella quella architettura sullo sfondo e molto belle le tende rosse che la rifiniscono.

I like the framing and point of view; the extensive piazza provides an excellent lead line toward the focal point offered by the statue. The elegant building in the background (possibly the Hotel de Ville?) provides further interest and makes a fine backdrop to the whole. Lovely Southern light complemented by very good colours and sharpness.

Une belle photo sous un beau ciel bleu. Hormis le fait que la photo n'est pas cadrée du Jaurès... c'est un beau cliché.

beautiful square but something what attracts the attention here is surely this strongly saturated sky.I like the central symmetry with the lines of the pavement making nice diagonals,
Very well done,
