Not only the famous tower in Pisa is worth photographing. I really loved the town, with lovely buildings and bridges that looked so romantic. The day was cloudy (and rainy) and I found the lighting quite moody. Taken with my first digital camera, poor old Pentax Optio 30.
PP: only adjusting shadows/highlights and noise reduction which was noticable in the sky, full frame shot.

Wonderful shot: Pov, colors, the river Arno...
I allow myself to say that it's mind that takes the photo, no old poor Pentax Optio 30.
Have a nice day

Beautiful shoot. It´s amazing the wide chromatic range that you´ve got in this picture. It´s very difficult to do this with low light conditions!
The composition is also very nice, and the distribution of the space in the image is perfect.
Well done. Keep sharing ;-)

The strong cloudy sky emphasize the colors of the houses and gives a great atmosphere to the picture, really well taken, POV is perfect,
nice work Marija, BRAVA!!

Oh my God!!
You are incredible!!
First you set TE on fire with a B&w now you have painted TE with the beautiful water colours of Italy.
Have mercy Marija.

Joli cliché de cette ville combien célèbre avec ses belles maisons pleines de couleurs. C'est juste un peu dommage de voir la grue, mais c'est un détail.
Merci pour le partage.

This is very nice view, Marija, I like the stormy clouds and the reflections in Arno river, very good composition with this curve. A belated welcome on TE!

Great composition and the title is most appropriate... for the particular mood it portrays.

Ovo mesto izgleda malo napusteno i tmurno ali kompozicija je jako lepa sa svim bojama, kontrastom i tisinom. Cak i voda mirno tece. Gde su svi pobegli?

Jolie photo sous ce temps gris mais justement j'aime le contraste entre ce ciel chargé et les façades colorées de la ville. De beaux reflets dans l'eau, une jolie courbe donnée par le fleuve passant sous le pont. Seul petit défaut, l'horizon qui penche dégèrement à droite je crois !

The light and colors are simply beautiful, and the cloudy sky adds a lot of strength (This photo is a great example for those people that say they don't like photographing unless it is sunny).
The composition, POV and FOV are very good, too.
Kind regards, saludos,

Beautiful. It means we do not need a sunny day o take good pictures. Yours is excellent with a perfect POV and very nice colours. The composition is very good with the bridge on the left. Well done.

The clouds and the reflection on the water are great! And the colors complete a beutiful scene. Good job!
hoorge (1434) 2006-08-03 20:34
Awesome picture! I love the clouds, the colors of the buildings, the bridge and the river. Great pov, sharp and clear.

A nice view that offers something definitely different than the normal Torre Pendente views we get to see from Pisa, The stormy weather gives it a good atmosphere resulting from the dark clouds contrast against the warm building facades. I prepared a small WS for you.
Have a nice day,

Hey Girl! :)beautiful pic, Maya :))))
The heavy clouds are creating a nice atmosphere here.
I admit I agree with Jean-Yves to clone out the crane! :)
Excellent piece in your gallery!

I like the clouds,colours and reflections on the river..
Thanks for sharing.

veoma kompaktna fotografija sa interesantnim formama i bojama objekata, super kompozicija sa dobrom refleksijom i svakako impozantno nebo iznad vrha planine i objekata...
Fis2 (85541) 2006-08-04 14:11
Your photo is nicely. I like the composition,colours and perspektive. Very impressive picture. Good work.
bantonbuju (51781) 2006-08-04 14:48
initially i found the crane spoiling this image but at the end of the day i find it being an important part of this view, it simply makes it somehow real, not just a dream place but something which one can touch, or visit one day...
my dear, you are an unquestionable master of REASONABLE post processing (love it how you do it!)
best wishes, j.

Wonderful framing. Lovely dramatic sky. The layers of clouds are beautifully captured.
marietom (34607) 2006-08-09 5:47
beau ciel, et belle compo.

odlican pogled na staro romanticno mesto. Da, mora da je lepo setati se uz reku Arno, koji je tu bio doista miran, da se u njemu vide refleksije i mesta i neba. A pogled na most izvan centra fotke je pika na i. Super!

Good evening Marija!
This is a really nice and a very colourful photo of Pisa and i think you had luck with that rainy day. It transmits a kind of nostalgic feelings.
Thank you for sharing it and enjoy your digital camera as i do it since i have my Canon, since March of this year.
Have a pleasant evening! Szia,

Magnificent sky, I love overcast skies. I agree with you that Tuscany is fabulous for photography - not only the landscape but also the nice villages and cities. Pisa, btw, is fabulous at night when all the tourist buses leave - so peacefull and charming.

Beautiful light and colours, magnific clouds in the sky.
You are an artist Thank you for sharing

I discover your gallery ; that's very interesting. Today, I stop on this one that I like particularly the lightning and the colors. Cordially,

You are right, not only the very famous places looked good.
Your picture has deep colours. Very nice shot.
