The tower in the foreground makes a good anchor point as we follow the perspective down the river across the bridges. There is much to be seen and in good detail. I like the splashes of greenery interspersed between the buildings.

A nice view overlooking the river and its many bridges. The choice of vantage point must be the optimal, i guess. Very good depth in the image. Great work:)

Another great panorama of this wonderful city, in this case a beautiful view of the Arno with the sequence of its bridges, ideal image of the "Ponte Vecchio" in first line.
A difficult light that does not diminish the beauty of the image.
paololg (31448) 2011-09-06 13:53
Ciao caro amico,
enjoyable view of Florence, with its Ponte Vecchio on the Arno River and the beautiful palaces on the banks. A privileged POV, but also an excellent sharpness that makes us appreciate all the details, even the small canoes. Really pleasant the feeling of depth and the good perspective. Another wonderful image from Italy! Bravo!
Ciao, have a nice day!
pierrefonds (52548) 2011-09-06 19:20
The point of view is sending my eyes toward the last bridge which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing the deatisla nd colors of the architecture of the bridges and of the buildings. The laye afternoon light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.
amaryllis (32599) 2011-09-06 23:33
une belle vue panoramique et en plongée sur ces différents ponts dont celui-ci particulièrement spécial, déjà vu sur TE, mais avec des présentations différentes
emka (67229) 2011-09-06 23:40
Hi Ike, Nice close up to the bridges on Arno. Piazzale Michelangelo offers such a great panoramas. and so near is marvelous church San miniato, my favourite, I haven't seen it yet on your photos.
pablominto (53744) 2011-09-07 0:02
The river makes a fine diagonal element in the composition!
The hazy atmosphere gives a special effect, leaving the colours slightly muted...
A well balanced composition with many interesting details to explore!
rodgerg (55767) 2011-09-07 0:51
Superb view to the famous Ponte Vecchio and the another bridge in Firenze. These differents bridge give graphic effect and rythm to the image. The FG well selected with the bell-tower and the roofs give depht.
Have a nice day,
mauro61 (52623) 2011-09-07 1:46
buona la ripresa con la sequenza di vari ponti sull'Arno.
Mi piace la resa delle architetture avvolte dalla foschia dell'ora,
jhm (130608) 2011-09-07 3:30
You shows us the four bridges on one row, we see in the air a little bit misty atmosphere, perhaps a asset for your image.
Excellent perspective with the houses to the right side.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect.
Excellent composition good presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.
Charo (51208) 2011-09-07 4:11
Well done to avoid the sky in this capture, since judging from your last picture was not very nice.
Well used the zoom to Focus on the famous bridge over the Arno.
Excellent depth and detail.
npecanhuk (58170) 2011-09-07 6:13
Excellently chosen pov!
Maybe just a bit oversharpened!
TFS - congrats,
geoant68 (2747) 2011-09-07 11:39
great the panoramic view of Arno with the bridges to creates depth in the image.Beautiful the details despite the harsh light of the background.
clic (13006) 2011-09-07 15:07
Many thanks for your kind words Ike
You present an exciting overview on this district of Firenze depicted with much depth convied by those multi transversal elements attached on both sides the Arno River.
The inclusion of near campanile is quite judicious as eye catcher.
delpeoples (50263) 2011-09-07 18:59
Ciao dear Ike
Oooh la la. What a POV! It shows all those famous bridges of Firenze and the wonderful buildings that characterise one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I see what you say about the strong lighting, and can only imagine this all golden at sunset (or sunrise). So whilst the sun was not doing you any favours, you produced a beautiful photo which brings back wonderful memories of this magical place.

Very beautiful point of view choosen, deserving this wonderful view, superb details and play of colours and structures all over...a very well composed capture!!
PaulVDV (18682) 2011-09-10 13:32
Excellent view of the Arno with the many bridges and of course the most beautiful one in front.
Beautiful cityscape with the tower and the trees making an interesting foreground.
Best regards, Paul
Kitty_the_Wild (1169) 2011-09-12 13:18
What a charming perspective, with the bridges curling through the river Arno, following his shape and adding something of special to this elegant wonderful town.
nobuikehonda (3848) 2011-09-14 4:49
I write to you rather often today. This is a superb birds-eye view of the river Arno. I love the view. I wonder how many people in the past have seen the view and return to the city to see it again. I think you to will be among those who would return to the city to revisit and be fascinated again and again. Florence is one of the few cities which never stop to keep fascinating those who come to see the splendor. I would like to visit the city one day as you did. I will always remember the way you have observed the Italian cities. Thank you Ike,
With my very best wishes,
macjake (48279) 2011-09-17 9:47
its refreshing to see an overall photo of this very popular scene. we can take in all the architecture and city that the area has to offer, not just the bridge.
i like this scene very much.
have yourself a great weekend

Love the composition, a great view of a great city! I like that you included the tower in the foreground, helps give some scale to the image, even with the compression...nice job! Thanks for the feedback on my photos, keep up the good work!

kato (10547) 2013-05-03 11:56
You're capturing well this cityscape by a good angle and excellent clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see this historical city of medieval buildings with tiled/brick red roof, a row of bridge on the winding wide river and the surrounding greenery. It looks like the city with settled and gentle atmosphere.
ourania (21360) 2013-10-19 9:35
an exquisite view over the river, the bridges and the banks, one of my favourite sights. I like very much how the perspective of the river guides us through the frame and how the clarity and depth you've achieved allow us to enjoy the much seen and much loved architectural details. Lighting, colours and atmosphere are moody and romantic. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
