This image captures the charm of any small town. I like the early mood of the day and the contrasts. Well taken.

sicuramente Modugno ha contribuito in maniera diretta a far conoscere questa cittadina, ma avrebbe comunque meritato la sua fama anche solo per le bellezze architettoniche.

Très belle petite place prise sous une très belle lumière très tôt le matin qui allonge les ombres au sol et qui rend la marche plus rafraîchissante.Une belle matinée pour une belle journée.

A contrasty blue and white old town square and presence of people in this kind of shot is a real bonus as shown. What a lovely view, full of live, the pov and perspective add so much interests with the significant buildings in the backdrop. Credit to your skill in achieving a good balance exposure. Charming and lively shot. Congrats and tfs

Old and new buildings feature on your post, I can feel the atmosphere of the past, it's a narrow plazza surrounded by cafes and churches, excellent luminosity, clean image Silvio
