Another crowded place with lots of tourists (like myself) and locals coming to se this impressive building, the cathedral of Florence. To avoid distractions in my composition and focus on the cathedral I chose a close-up of one of the domes.
Thanks for viewing.

Florence! There are too many places in the world to visit my friend! Florence, Lofoten, any other city/town in Itay! haha
fun to see the tiny tiny people at the top. Did you go up there too? I wonder what the views would be like?
really like that you added int he 3 statues in the lower fg. its a nice touch.
Sigh...i don't think we'll be making it to Lofoten in March :(
But we really appreciate all of your help Erling! Thank you

Hello Erling - I am so excited as we will be in Florence in May this year and never having been to Italy I know that I will really enjoy the sights and sounds. I like your very studied composition, it has excellent definition and contrast and I can enjoy all the lavish architectural details. Next year hopefully we will make it to your neck of the woods.
Warmest regards Rosemary

crowded and often photographed,but You´ve found a way to present us this famous Cathedral in your own,original way.
I like close-up and how you framed the scene,but also this strong graphics you were able to create.And in this case the blue sky is crucial to achieve tjis very expressive effect.Love the color contrast it creates and how it emphasizes architectural details of the Cathedral.
Wish You all the best

bel taglio su Santa Maria del Fiore, la famosa cupola è risalta contro il blu del cielo e il particolare della facciata arricchisce lo scatto con le sue belle rifiniture.
Proprio oggi ero a Firenze, ma per me è troppo facile, in 45 minuti ci arrivo.

beautiful elegant photo of the Florence dome. Splendid composition and I likie this close up, we can see the crowd high up on the dome. What a pity i haven't climb it bhut when I was in Florence the number of tourists was to much for me.
Splendid composition in nice colours and many details.

Beau plan rapproché du dôme de la cathédrale avec une partie de la façade comme avant-plan. Beau contraste des couleurs avec le ciel bleu. Bien fait.

Un cadrage original du dôme de la cathédrale de Florence incluant une partie de la façade. La lumière était parfaite ce jour là.

Den här bilden är verkligen snyggt beskuren. Du har koncentrerat dig på de väsentligaste delarna och också på de viktigaste färgerna. Dessa framhävs av den djupblå himlen.

Fantastic architecture loads of fine detail and nicely aligned verticals so well balanced that really bring out the character within the framework. Lighting is well handled with lovely blue sky area, subtle colors, crisp throughout, fine contrast and lovely touch of supplementary color on the dome. Well taken shot. Congrats

Hello Erling - I've decided to pop back into TE after a long absence; glad to see everyone well. A really nice and detailed close crop of the dome of this Florence masterpiece. You capture the small details well here, as well as the texture of the dome itself. Thanks!
