The sunlight draws geometric patterns on the walls and the floor. Light and shadow are balanced. These are ideal conditions for a photo. I find the most appropriate perspective for this scene and press the shutter.
Thanks for the note by John (jhm), it is really my 700th photo at TE. I very rarely look at the statistics.

A splendid study in light and shade, enhanced by the strong graphical lines. Good inclusion of the lady who makes a fine focal point and adds a touch of vitality to the scene.

Another very strong graphical picture, with the most exquisite composition/cropping and superb control of the highlights and shadows. The timing is also excellent, and the female figure is well positioned and caught in a pose suggesting movement into the picture. Great work.

Exceptionalaly well used light, shade and indirect reflections. The unseen windows have created a very elegant pattern along the floor. I also like the appetizing nuances of grey. The woman in suitable blue is well placed. She isn't strange enough to fit into a surrealistic painting, otherwise I find a touch of De Chirico in these vaults.

innanzi tutto grazie per le tue 700 foto sempre di alto livello come quest'ultima con questo studio di ombre e luci proiettate sul pavimento.
La figura umana rompe il il monocromatismo e dá profonditá alla immagine.

We've seen you post a few of these light and shadow photo's before and you do very well with them.
having the lady with a blue shirt really makes it stand out against the whites and greys.
a perfect secondary subject.
classic and formal presentation

There are many strong lines here and they are all leading to the woman, who adds colours to the scene. This is an exceptionally well composed picture!

Another well considered and managed shot Wolfgang. I like the simple composition which allows the light and architectural details to 'speak loudly'. The figure is well placed and supplies the perfect colour note and feeling for scale. Super. Warm regards rosemary

thank you for Rosemary to comment it today, I missed it during my holidays. It's the kind of picture I like the most for the moment, the intercation of human presence in a cityscape or landscape. Here, you got a stunning perspective of the arcades, well enhanced by the rythm of the shadows, and the lady is well located at the back, in a ray of light.
Congratulations for your active presence on this site!

Die Aussicht ist sehr schön Architektur und gut dokumentierte Schatten. Gute Tiefe und ausgezeichnete Beleuchtung und Komposition. Es gibt attraktive und schöne junge Dame.
Vielen Dank für einen schönen Rekord.

Super feast for the eyes of geometrical shapes, light and shadows. The woman walking into the picture makes this a very artistic shot especially as she is wearing a lovely shade of blue. First class image - very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann
