Bologna is the largest city and capital of Emilia-Romagna Region in Northern Italy. It is the seventh most populous city in Italy, located in the heart of a metropolitan area officially recognized by the Italian government as a città metropolitana of about one million.
The city, the first settlements of which date back to at least 1000 BC, has always been an important urban centre, first under the Etruscans (Velzna/Felsina) and the Celts (Bona), then under the Romans (Bononia), then again in the Middle Ages, as a free municipality. For one century it was the fifth largest European city based on population.

Hello Stephen - A rich composition packed with interesting detail and brought to life by the presence of people. You have captured a fine DL shot with sumptuous colours, good light management and plenty to occupy the eye. Probably one of your most atmospheric shots from Bologna, you certainly convey the feel of this narrow alley. Have a fine weekend. Rosemary

Another fine, colourful and detailed street scene showing daily life. There is a lot of detail for one to explore and consider in this image.

bello scatto, la strada nel suo pieno movimento, con molte attività .
Splendidi i particolari, come l'arco e il cancello, ma anche la fila di travi in legno con i montanti a fare da sostegno.
Mi sembra solo un troppo satura, ma sono gusti miei.

I like very much the depth and well moderated dynamism of this composition. The perspectives are very attractive for the way they draw us into this picturesque alley and for the marvellous details they carry all over. The background is rich and absolutely comprehensive and attractive too. Lighting and colours are warm and pleasing, the daily life activity is interesting as well. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

A fantastic DL shot with so much to view and admire. Bright and warm colors on the walls lighten up scene nicely. Great perspective achieved by the alley and the row of buildings. Very eye-catching composition indeed.
Thanks for sharing.

Have a great weekend - B.

Tu as su saisir l'essence de la vie quotidienne à Parme. Les beaux produits, les belles couleurs, l'agitation des gens. Ici, j'aime le cadrage vertical qui donne de la profondeur à l'ensemble.

un momento di vita a Bologna.
Un angolo che riprende un angolo sconosciuto della città, ben diverso dai portici che dominano la gran parte dei percorsi cittadini e forse per questo molto inbteressante.
Un momento di vita quotidiana che trasforma la granbde città in un piccolo angolo di provincia.
Molto belli i colori ed eccellente la nitidezza.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

This daily life scene typifies Italian lifestyle and is the reason we all go to this amazing country. There is just so much elegance and old world charm. The colours are beautiful, as is the architecture. You did well leaving no stay in at all, using the tight crop to balance the light so well. A luminous photo that makes me nostalgic for il Bel Paese.
Thanks for sharing

Your photo from Bologna reminds me my walks in Verona. I like this vertical composition, fine details of architecture, very nice vivid colors of the street.
Sorry, no points today.
rigoletto (33778) 2014-01-20 7:05
hi stephen. one of those typical, old, colorful and narrow streets of italy: i love them. you were not very lucky in terms of light, but brightening and applying a warm white balance compansates the lack of sunlight in there. very eye catching with vivid colors and lots of fine details to observe.
RhodieIke (11052) 2014-01-20 21:09
I do like your street scene, this one in Italy is super, so much to view and take in. great Pov, love the colours and the light creates a great atmosphere.
Tfs, and have a good Tuesday.
