This diagonal of old stairs captured my attention...so I've captured it myself...
Taormina is a comune and small town on the east coast of the island of Sicily. Taormina has been a very popular tourist destination since the 19th century. It has popular beaches (accessible via an aerial tramway) on the Ionian sea, which is remarkably warm and has a high salt content.

The framing is spot on; I like the inclusion of the number seven, which is nicely counterbalanced by the decorative tile bottom right. Good colour contrasts and excellent rendering of the textural detail.

This is a quite original and very enjoyable composition. The steps, plants and railings form a very strong and distinct diagonal, and you cropped this very well to fit the railings perfectly into he upper corner. I like the inclusion of the little sign saying 7.

Unique graphical design created with this beautiful composition.
Great observation and nice colors.
I like how you balanced the number 7 at top left with a piece of wall decoration at bottom right.
An original presentation.

simple and beautiful, exactly as i like it:) I like this strong diagonal composition and the potted plants who adds colors and life to this scene. I think the number 7 sign is a little bit disturbing, despite it is balanced by the tiles. Nice shot and observation, tfs!

un particolare che hai trasformato in un soggetto di interesse fotografico grazie all'ottimo taglio e al buon occhio.
Bella composizione, ben equilibrata, con la scala che sale e i vasi tutti uguali che seguono l'andamento della salita.

Joli cadrage avec une belle utilisation de la rampe d'escalier , le 7 et la petite mosaïque complétant bien l'image.

The way you framed the scene is just brilliant and makes your composition really eye-catching!
Have a good day

Hello Daniel - A charming observation and well managed shot. I like the composition with the vertical lines and neatly placed plant pots. The soft and subtle colours are beautifully punctuated by the greens here. Warm regards Rosemary

simple and elegant cropping makes this a beautiful study.
The mix of elements and lines here are pure genius and the presentation both artistic and striking. Well done!
Have a great weekend - B.

A lovely composition, simple but full of geometric shapes that makes us look closely at the particular rather than the general architecture of the street.
I like it a lot.
Have a great w/e,

I like this composition that is both artistic and creative. The diagonal line is just jutting through the shot, and the patterns of the banisters add a beautiful graphic touch. The plants following the diagonal are a good contrasting detail and add a natural touch to the composition. Great scene, well spotted.

I like very much this architectural and daily life detail that makes an interesting and rewarding picture in itself. There's a fine play of repetitive patterns and textures, the subdued colours create a homogeneity that's charming. I thought of an alternative cropping that would bring the tile with no 7 a little closer to the top border and make its relationship with the colourful tile a little stronger. I also like how the stairway seems endless and how the atmosphere is neutral, thus exalting the graphism. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Un très beau cadrage à la verticale pour nous montrer cet escalier et une plante toutes les deux marchés, c'est excellent et bien vu

Tout bon cadrage des escaliers joliment garnie de plantes vertes, l'inclusion du n°7 et de la mosaïque ajoute un plus a la composition
