A closeup of some of the amazing bronze filigree work on a door in central Florence, Italy. Taken at the 'Duomo' or main square / piazza, from memory. The double doors had about 8 separate panels each depicting a biblical scene. Florence makes up for quantity compared to Venice with quality. The central city is packed with wonderful architecture and every turn reveals something new and interesting to photograph.

Your settings are perfect here as there is no glare anywhere to speak with the bronze plating.
By the way, are you still teaching in Korea? I know someone that is going to Korea as a pre-school teacher or grades 1-3 depending where they need her.

hai ripreso in maniera eccellente un bel dettaglio di quella che è considerata una delle più belle opere d'arte di Firenze, forse la più bella in assoluto.
Finezza di dettagli, contrasto e luminosità eccellente caratterizzano questa tua foto di un soggetto non facile da riprendere per la costante ressa di turisti che lo attornia.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

A fine close-up on this beautifully detailed bronze door panel. The image is evenly lit allowing us to fully appreciate the craftsmanship that has gone into this artwork. Clarity is excellent. It would be great to see this in a large version.

Hello Chris - I am looking forward to seeing this next year when we go to Florence, a place I have never seen but one I hear is packed with marvelous sights. You have presented a flawless shot here, wonderfully detailed with natural-looking colour and tone. Warm regards Rosemary

Florence is a place I really should re-visit, I had a brief stay in the City for a few hours and never saw any of its history or beauty. When I see artistry like this I realise what I missed and this is just a fraction of what to see and photograph. Captured superbly, such a lot to look at and quite fascinating.
Enjoy your weekend - B.

Interesting photo, the relief is very well captured in excellent light and nice details. You mast have had perfect light, because there are not any distracting reflections around the image. Excellent photo work.
Wish you a very nice Sunday.

Arkadaşım iyi akşamlar
As you are in Turkey...
Now about the capture, you manage to obtain a very interesting detail avoiding reflects, with super sharpness to appreciate the golden graving and its details like Jerusaleh writing and faces of the soldats

nice the view of this fine bronze filigree work with the excellent light management to bring out the details of the design.I like the clarity and the sharpness of the scene as the fascinating presentation.
yquem46 (38382) 2013-12-02 8:11
I remember this one in Firenze but I thought this was on the Baptistere's doors
Not often that someone dare posting images of sculptures, and even less in 2D
But it was well worth in the present case since this shot is really excellent and provides a clear and sharp version of the real thing
Bravo for daring and for the result
have a nice day
