One of my favourite Italian composers is Ottorino Respighi. One of his best known works is "Fountains of Rome". This fountain in Piazza Navona isn't one of the fountains featured in his composition but it it one of many in Rome and has as a backdrop some classic Rome buildings.

Nice shot, good scan. Those buildings make a great backdrop for this typical Roman fountain. Hard to believe this is a scan, now that I look at it more closely. Flawless and just the right level of sharpness.

Good evening Ian,
This typically Italian place is superb. The strong light is very well controlled, and does not blur any detail. A well thought framing and an excellent realization.

excellent postcard from Rome. I like it. I like the symmetry of the composition nicely broken by the presence of people, The light was harsh yet it gives a summer feeling to the photo.
Nice capture, TFS
