Excellent view to nice town houses. There is a very nice contrast between blue sea water and white houses. All in excellent light and nice light reflections. Superb viewpoint.
Very well done.
P.s. Sorry for my slow response, but my access to internet is not very regular during my travelling.

Beautiful composition of the rocks by the seaside. The buildings that make up the shoreline are lovely too. Excellent textural details and the contrast with the ink blue water is wonderful. Excellent composition and thanks for sharing.
Have a nice evening.

ben tornato e nientepopodimeno che con il grande Mimmo.
Bellissimo luogo che purtroppo non conosco di persona, ma ho visto tante cose e tutte belle, proprio come la tua foto.

nice to have you back again on TE :)
these collections of homes or buildings really do need a splash of color don't you think?
they could benefit from color window shutters or something similar.
but thats not your fault :)
the royal blue waters help to contrast the sandstone quite well.
i'd love to see the insides of these buildings.

Fine view of Polignano a Mare, the ancient medieval rock buildings clinging to the ocean cliffs, with caves for exploring, and I would enjoy kayaking or paddle boarding here to experience the history and culture from the water.

I like the point of here very much and the division between land and sea. Also, the light and colours. Excellent rendering of the textural detail in the rocks and the buildings.

questa costa ha un carattere particolare e molto attraente. Mi piace molto guardare tanti terrazzi e finestre cosi vicino al mare, le case fanno parte di una solida fortezza. La tua foto ci offre una vista molto interessante con superba prospettiva ed ottima chiarezza. Molto gradevole la luce brillante ed i colori che si contrastano in modo naturale. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti, spero che stai godendo di una vacanza bellissima!

Looks like those buildings were curved from those rocks, and I hope those rocks are stable enough to hold those buildings. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

The wonderful situation of this population, with houses rising on the rocks right above the sea, is a fantastic POV of a very charming place.
Very good color, which gives much strength to the image.
Superb light and sharpness.
Have a nice day.
Best wishes, my friend.

A picturesque location very well composed with the fg and the rough rock shore line leads into the picture with the houses ideally placed but interesting the way they built them. Your horizon is spot on- I hate to think about the state of the builders' spirit levels! What a wonderful coastal town and very pleasant colors, clarity and contrast. Congrats

You forgot to say that it is the birthplace of Domenico Modugno, whose monument is near the bridge at the entrance to the old part of town!
I have at least 50 photos of Polignano (some are available in my gallery).
